Where There’s [Pain, Stress, Sickness, Fatigue, Poor Sleep, Bad Diet] … There’s Inflammation
Are you in pain? Tired all of the time? Breaking out? Breaking down? Digestive issues? Can’t lose weight?
The Problem…. Chronic Inflammation // The Solution… Cannabidiol (CBD)
Inflammation is your body’s natural immune response.
In acute cases of injury, infection or irritation, it is beneficial and necessary for healing and survival. But, chronic inflammation is the common denominator of all disease!
Chronic inflammation can lead to:
- autoimmune disease
- heart disease
- tendonitis and more.
Reducing inflammation can go a long way towards preventing and reversing disease, slowing the aging process and keeping you healthy and biologically young.
CBD interacts with CB2 receptors of the Endocannabinoid System
These receptors are mostly found on the cells of the immune system.
Supplementing with CBD can regulate your immune response, quell inflammation and act as a potent treatment against inflammatory disorders!
When you are inflamed, your body cannot attain homeostasis (the state of balance our bodies are always striving towards)
Your Endocannabinoid System is a homeostatic regulator and CBD is an endocannabinoid modulator.
This means that supplementing with CBD regulates your regulatory system AKA it gives you what you need to put out the fires that are burning you out!
Why Are You Chronically Inflamed?
First of all, you are not alone. Most Americans suffer from chronic inflammation because of the Standard American Diet, or ‘SAD’ (in more ways than one);
- Too many refined sugars and carbohydrates
- too many chemicals, preservatives and hormones
- not enough antioxidants and nutrients.
- Environmental toxins
- poor sleep
- Another big inflammation booster is stress.
- Cortisol (your stress/fight or flight hormone) becomes persistently elevated during times of prolonged stress, causing inflammation by putting your immune system and adrenals into overdrive.
Chronic inflammation is also an issue for seemingly healthy athletes and fitness enthusiasts.
Working out causes micro-traumas to the muscle and essentially breaks you down in order to build you back stronger.
But, what happens when you don’t take the proper steps to rebuild?
If you aren’t taking enough recovery time, eating enough protein and nutrient-dense foods, and letting your body heal, you are not allowing the acute, controlled inflammatory response to subside.
This results in low-grade chronic inflammation which will ultimately hinder your goals. Tissue that does not heal completely produce inflammatory chemicals that promote inflammation throughout the whole body.
CBD to the Rescue
CBD is an immunoregulator. It interacts with CB2 receptors of the Endocannabinoid System, which have the highest concentrations throughout the immune system.
Cannabinoids suppress the inflammatory response and decrease disease by regulating the activity neurotransmitters and receptor sites that play a critical role in immune function.
CBD, and cannabinoids in general, have a powerful antioxidant effect, helping free the body of free radicals.
- Chronically high levels of free radicals in your body cause a prolonged immune response
- a prolonged immune response is just another way of saying… you guessed it… CHRONIC INFLAMMATION!
A study published in the Free Radical Biology & Medicine Journal showed that CBD can be helpful in lessening the impact of inflammation caused by oxidative stress, decreasing the risk of organ damage and dysfunction.
When your immune system is on the fritz, your body is in attack mode; it sees threats all over the place and is more concerned about mitigating disaster than building strength and vitality.
CBD: Your Body’s Ultimate Firefighter
Not only does it directly regulate the immune system by interacting with the CB2 receptors within the immune system, CBD also helps to relieve anxiety and regulate sleep which lowers cortisol levels and allows your body to chill out.
When inflammation is present, homeostasis (the body’s ideal state of balance) cannot be attained.
CBD reduces inflammation, bringing us closer to achieving homeostasis. It also balances our Endocannabinoid System, which plays a very important role in regulating the essential balance between mind and body.
Ashwagandha is a restorative and balancing herb that reduces the effects of chronic stress, boosts immune function and relieves anxiety, working synergistically with full spectrum hemp extract to make you feel better, look better, and live better.
Immune System Regulation + Stress Relief + Endocannabinoid System Balance = Inflammation’s Worst Nightmare.
