Whether you are suffering from chronic inflammation or just feeling extra sore after a good workout, CBD can support you in your recovery. There is solid research to back the claims that CBD may help reduce or relieve inflammation, including a study from the European Journal of Pain that shows a reduction of inflammation in an animal model when treating arthritis.
What is inflammation and how can CBD help?
Inflammation is a protective response of the immune system that occurs when there is a perceived “threat” to the homeostasis of the body. There are 2 types of inflammation: Acute and Chronic.
CBD has been shown to suppress the immune system response to both acute and chronic inflammation. It has also been shown to bind-to and desensitize receptors in our bodies known to mediate pain and inflammation.
