Inflammation is the body’s natural response to protect itself in the face of harm. There are two types: acute and chronic. Acute occurs following an injury, or infection – for example, when you cut your finger. Chronic is a prolonged inflammatory response in the body.
Whilst inflammation is vital to protect and heal the body, sustained inflammation can be detrimental and is often a source of significant pain and anxiety.
CBD shows great potential as an all-natural, plant-derived anti-inflammatory – without the side effects of traditional medicine.
The body produces endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system.
Many studies have shown that CBD can help reduce inflammation by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, and interacting with these neurotransmitters.
