Inflammation is part of the body’s natural immune response. It is an element in the process to protect you from infection due to internal and external bacteria and viruses. However, chronic inflammation in the body can be the cause of many disorders. CBD oil has been shown to have promise as a treatment aid for reducing inflammation. Let’s explore how CBD hemp oil reduces inflammation in your body and why it can be a powerful benefit to your general health.
Acute and Chronic Inflammation
The two types of inflammation are acute and chronic. Acute is the natural inflammation that arises due to injury or any harmful stimuli. Although you may experience pain, swelling, redness and heat, it indicates your immune system is healthy and is activating a healing response.
Chronic inflammation, on the other hand, is a malfunction of the inflammatory response and can be at the root of many autoimmune disorders like arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia and more. Reduction of the chronic inflammation is the first protocol for treatment of and prevention of any autoimmune disorders.
CBD, The Endocannibinoid System and Chronic Inflammation
Your body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS), plays a regulatory role in inflammatory response so that it does not go out of control. This is of key importance because prolonged, exacerbated inflammation can cause damage to nearby organs and organ systems.
Phytocannabinoids, like CBD, are powerful anti-inflammatory agents. The COX-2 is the main enzyme that ignites the most common inflammatory response and CBD is a strong inhibitor of the COX-2. This, along with other hormonal interactions, in effect, blocks the response. This is the same mechanism that aspirin and other NASIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) use to block inflammation.
Phytocannabinoid Rich CBD oil, when dosed daily can play a significant role in naturally managing inflammation without the dangerous side effects of NASIDs.
Anti-inflammatories and Pain
Most chronic inflammatory disorders also have various levels of pain symptoms. This is also true, of course with injuries and other acute inflammation. Since CBD has strong pain relief properties, as well as being a powerful anti-inflammatory, it can provide a full spectrum treatment aid.
What Role Does CBD Play In Inflammation and Endocannabinoid Deficiency?
Endocannabinoids are the cannabinoids naturally produced by the body, that are the tiny molecules called lipids (fats) that interact with the signaling network known as the ECS (Endocannabinoid System).
If there is a deficiency in the body’s production of endocannabinoids, then the full function of the ECS is inhibited. By introducing Pytocannabinoid Rich CBD Hemp Extract as a daily supplement, the production of endocannabinoids may be greatly stimulated. This will provide an increased anti-inflammatory response as well as assist in the regulatory efficiency of the ECS with respect to reducing inflammation both short and long term.
Daily PCR CBD Oil supplementation can not only reduce and control inflammation but also bring the body to homeostasis (balance). When the body is in homeostasis you can enjoy well-being and a greater quality of life.
