Awhile back I mentioned looking at CBD creams for pain for my knee. I have had 3 surgeries on the right one and now have a slight meniscus tear in the left. Chondroitin helps, so does turmeric(occasionally upsets my stomach) but the left has been bothering me going down stairs so I revisited CBD and finally pulled the trigger. I bought stick on patches, 15 for about 35 bucks. Man what a difference! I was struggling to go downstairs normally, had to go one at a time even with a neoprene sleeve on. Put a patch on each knee and 2 minutes later the pain was reduced. 4 days after I could still go downstairs normally it IMO not just reduced the pain but freed up movement in the knee. They're not cheap but so far I'm very happy with them see link below.
