One of the most important and special health benefits of CBD is its ability to effectively relieve many types of inflammation.
There are two types of inflammation, acute and chronic. Acute inflammation rises typically from a localized injury and tends to be short-lived. Chronic inflammation, on the other hand, happens from a consistent problem or illness. This can lead to serious dangers in long-term organ and cardiovascular health.
Some serious illnesses associated with chronic inflammation are diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer's, depression, neuropathy, obesity, hypertension, etc. People who suffer from chronic inflammation tend to use NSAID’s (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as ibuprofen and aspirin. These drugs may offer temporary relief, but its anti-inflammatory properties do not last long enough to provide relief for extended periods of time.
In fact, for chronic inflammation, some people end up taking ibuprofen on a daily basis. This can lead to serious long term side effects such as ulcers, liver and kidney failure, prolonged bleeding, and higher risk of heart attack.
It is important to take serious measures in lowering the chances of these diseases in your future. You do so by maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle, which CBD is perfect to incorporate into. The reason CBD helps so much with inflammation is because of its reaction amongst the CB2 receptors in the body.
While CBD stimulates the CB1 receptors (central nervous system), it also stimulates the CB2 receptors which are located within the immune system. The immune system is what is in charge of all inflammatory response, so once the CB2 receptors are stimulated inflammatory response in minimized within the muscles, organs, and skin.
For localized inflammation topical CBD use is fantastic and quickly effective in addition to oral consumption. For chronic inflammation throughout parts of the immune system, consistent oral CBD consumption is a great route to follow.
