Interesting Articles, Our Practitioners, Self-Care

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 and the Immune systems response

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
