Inflammatory diseases involve a broad range of illnesses and afflictions caused by the immune system damaging the body’s tissues and cells. Living with any inflammatory disorder requires careful regulation of lifestyle, diet, and at times, even personal and social relationships. Because of symptoms like swelling, chronic pain, and tissue damage, acute inflammation is severe enough to impede with daily activities – not to mention a drain on finances due to ongoing medical care.

Cannabinoid Effects on Inflammation

CBD for inflammatory disorders has gained attention within medical research due to its anti-inflammatory abilities and control of biological responses to inflammation; clinical examinations demonstrate how cannabinoids can inhibit cellular reproduction, generate T-regulatory cells, activate apoptosis, and reduce cytokine proteins. Results show that with CBD administration, smooth-muscular irritation becomes notably weak and cytokine secretions decrease. Other evidence suggests that our body’s endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) possesses a vital function which protects against many inflammatory problems [16].
