CBD and Inflammation 

How can topical CBD products help with inflammation? NEEDS WORK

CBD is thought to affect the body’s endocannabinoid system. This is a network of receptors responsible for regulating a range of biological and physiological processes such as sleep, pain, mood, memory, the immune and nervous system. CBD works in harmony with the endocannabinoid system aiding a sense of relaxation without creating a sensation of being high, so it can help with a number of conditions including anxiety, pain relief and inflammation.

How can CBD treat inflammation?

Pain and inflammation can be common occurrence, causing discomfort and in some cases can be debilitating. Research on CBD as a pain reliever has been promising, suggesting that it can help subdue: 

  • Pain

  • Inflammation

  • Discomfort

Unlike products which are ingested, CBD topicals work with the endocannabinoid receptors in the skin to combat pain. These receptors are small proteins attached to cells, they receive chemical signals from different stimuli. It is believed CBD interacts with these receptors and studies have shown CBD could help to relieve inflammation, swelling and pain.  This makes it ideal to support those with arthritis.

CBD topical treatments can offer an alternative for those who rely on medications to treat pain, such as opiods that could be habit forming.
