Osteoporosis & Bone Protection
Research has discovered that CBD appears to enhance the growth and strengthening of bones through accelerated osteoblast formation.
Researchers believe that osteoclasts — the cells that breakdown bone — have a cell receptor that, when activated, speeds up bone loss and degeneration. This receptor is known as GPR55. CBD has been shown to specifically block the activation of this receptor, reducing osteoclast activity.
There is good evidence that CBD may be an effective treatment for osteoporosis by slowing down the progression of the disease and relieving pain.
