Can Cannabis Help me with my Arthritic Pain after Intensive Sports Activity?

Question: Can Cannabis Help me with my Arthritic Pain after Intensive Sports Activity?

Hi there! I'm really hoping that somebody on here can help me (please)... I have suffered from arthritis for a few years now and it seems to be getting noticibly worse. The problem is most grave after playing any kind of intense sport - i enjoy squash, rock climbing and tennis. Until recently I found that a swim or a bath afterwards would really help but no longer. I am in despair; do I have to give up my sporting pleasure?
A friend of mine recently sent me a link to a bbc report claiming that cannabis could help relieve the pain I experience. I'm really not keen on conventional painkillers so this idea appeals to me , however having never even tried cannabis, I'm very wary..

Does anyone have experience of using cannabis as a painkiller?

oh... and here's the link to the bbc article that I referred to:

Thank you!
