CBD and the immune system

Nutrition

According to a research study, CBD produced immunosuppressant effects, meaning it decreases the immune response. However, according to new research and anecdotal evidence, cannabinoids possess an immunomodulatory effect, meaning it regulates the immune response. A 2015 study analysed CBD studies that were done previously and concluded that CBD has tremendous possibility as a treatment for numerous types of anxiety.

The effects of stress during a pandemic

If inflammation (the response of living tissue to harmful or injurious agents) is excessive and aggressive or lasts for a long time, a large amount of damage can be done to the body. Viral infections of the lower respiratory tract are associated with inflammation that causes damage to the airways. CBD is an anti-inflammatory and suppresses the immune response. This is crucial in infections that cause an aggressive immune response, in order to prevent damage to the body. CBD may also have an immunomodulating effect. If CBD is combined with other cannabinoids and terpenes, the result is an effective regulation of the immune system. During epidemics or pandemics, many people around the world experience anxiety and stress. CBD could be beneficial during these difficult times as it has anti-anxiety properties.

Using CBD to assist with stress and anxiety

Nature’s Relief has developed the 600mg Broad spectrum Calm drops. This combination has anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety properties. CBD, other cannabinoids and terpenes work together to produce a synergistic effect (entourage effect) and may provide the following health benefits: anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, immunosuppression during times of excessive inflammation, immunomodulation, pain relief and antioxidant properties. These compounds adapt to the requirements of the body and bring about homeostasis, restoring the body back to optimal health.
