Natural Pain Relief & Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Research using animal models has shown that CBD may be able to modulate the immune system. While CBD does not bind to the body's cannabinoid receptors directly, it does affect other receptors and targets. According to a 2018 study published in Neurology, CBD binds to and desensitizes receptors known to mediate pain and sensory perception, inflammation, and body temperature.
Overall, the research literature indicates that cannabinoids, including CBD, could be very effective anti-inflammatory agents for nervous tissue inflammation, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, vascular inflammation and certain types of cancers that are triggered by chronic inflammation.
CBD provides inflammation relief without the blood-thinning or stomach ulceration side effects that traditional over-the-counter anti-inflammatories can cause.
