CBD Oil Is Great For Reducing Inflammation – But Why?
Everyone has experienced inflammation. You’ve almost certainly sustained a cut or contusion that caused tissue to become inflamed. Many people suffer from chronic inflammatory conditions.
The inflammation response is a normal part of your immune system’s functions. When your body senses a foreign invader, it rushes blood to the invasion site. This happens because blood contains immunity factors like white blood cells and antibodies. This rush of blood is why inflamed tissue is often red, warm, and swollen.
Unfortunately, inflammation can run out of control. This is the case with many autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and Type 1 diabetes. Anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen can be helpful for painful inflammation, but these drugs are sometimes ineffective in severe cases and can cause side effects such as liver damage.
Scientists and physicians have known for years that CBD, a major ingredient in hemp oil, can control inflammation without harmful side effects.
CBD Affects Chemical Receptor Pathways
As outlined in research published in 2015 in the journal Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry, CBD reduces inflammation by binding to several different types of chemical receptors. The first, called CB2, is partially responsible for producing edema (painful swelling) during inflammation. CBD strongly inhibits edema when it binds to CB2.
Also, CBD affects the A2A pathway. A2A receptors trigger an overactive immune response, producing too many immune cells that then attack healthy tissue. When CBD binds to A2A receptors, it reduces this harmful response.
The above are only two examples of CBD’s anti-inflammatory action that helps to relieve painful conditions. There is also evidence that CBD can reduce inflammation in visceral organs like the liver and pancreas. If confirmed, these effects could have profound benefits for people suffering from conditions like diabetes and fatty liver disease.
