Hemp Oil is Great for Inflammation Control, but Why?
Everyone has experienced inflammation at one point or another. Maybe you had a splinter that caused the surrounding tissue to become inflamed. Perhaps you suffer from a chronic inflammatory condition.
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 damaging side effects.
CBD Affects Several 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 - or potentially 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 go on to attack healthy tissue. When CBD binds to A2A receptors, it reduces this harmful response.
The above are just two brief 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.
