3 Reasons To Use Cannabis For Building Immunity

If you are following the latest wellness trend, you might have noticed a rave about CBD. Not only, there multiple CBD products in the market, but also plenty of online testimonials from the users testifying its benefits. It is attracting a lot of attention from the researchers and scientists all for its ability to modulate several human functions positively.

The endocannabinoid system in the human body is the network of receptors, nerves, and chemicals that help manage several functions and activities. It plays an important role in initiating a response to mood, hunger, pain, sleep, and inflammation. The Endocannabinoid system produces cannabinoids with a chemical structure similar to CBD extracted from hemp or cannabis plants. Therefore, the ingestion of a premium quality CBD  can help in the regulation and control of these functions.

Partaking CBD every day can also help boost immunity and bring balance to everyday life. Read on to find out how the above mentioned modulatory abilities of CBD help our immune system.

1. Reversing the Damage Caused by Auto-immune Diseases

The body’s natural mechanism to fight infection and pain is usually in the form of inflammation. The body segregates the infected area from the rest of the body to start the immediate repair work. However, in the case of auto-immune diseases, the body loses its ability to regulate this activity. Conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, type1 diabetes, etc the body suffers from chronic inflammation and tends to create an unregulated immune system response. This response can often create a lot of exertion, damage, and pain to the entire body. Several autoimmune disease conditions lack a solution or treatment depending on its severity. However, CBD shows the potential in the management of such diseases.

As CBD can bind with the CB1 receptors, it helps alleviate the symptoms of such diseases by altering chemical activity in the endocannabinoid system. It also shows the potential to reverse the damage caused by such conditions. You can go for oral or topical application of CBD oil in case of pain or inflammation as the CB receptors under the skin can absorb CBD from the surface.

2. Supports Gut Health and Digestion

The human gut is responsible not only for the digestion of food but also for the proper absorption of the nutrients. It consists of trillions of microorganisms and bacteria that take off the digestion and keeps it healthy. Any disturbance in the flora of the gut health can trigger several infections and invite diseases. So, it is important to take care of the gut health if we want to build strong immunity. The addition of CBD oil as a supplement can support digestion. It helps maintain proper bowel mobility by reducing inflammation in the GI tract.

Consuming CBD can also help us regulate meal potions by signaling food satiety. To add CBD oil to your food you can infuse a few drops of the recommended dosage to your food like cookies and desserts. Also, you can go for tinctures if you are seeking quick relief.  CBD can help alleviate irritable bowel systems by reducing swelling and bloatedness in the stomach, thus supporting a healthy immune system. 

3. Support the Overall Immunity

Human body functions are interrelated. Although, CBD may suppress the production of T-cells and therefore show some immune-modulatory properties. It also boosts the immune system in several ways. It helps maintain several body functions and support mental health and well-being by alleviating stress and anxiety. Untreated stress leads to several other mental disorders and cardiovascular diseases in the long run. CBD is a natural and safe alternative that can help manage stress.

It can also bring a sense of balance and harmony by restoring natural sleep cycles; It helps imbibe deep sleep cycles; thus, you wake up relaxed. It naturally sets the hormonal balance right by taking ample care of the body’s rest needs. It also induces physical relaxation by reducing pain that comes from everyday physical exertion. Some people choose to vape CBD vaping oil before bed to get better sleep. Loaded with antioxidants, CBD helps in removing free-radicals and toxins from the body. Its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties can work effectively against bacteria and hence help support immunity.

The Bottom Line

Immunity is the most important aspect of human health. Compromised immunity means everyday exposure to life-threatening diseases. As our immunity helps us guard the body against harmful viruses and bacteria, it is important to support it with proper nutrition and supplements. It is great to have a product in the market that naturally boosts immunity with little or no side effects. CBD comprehensively helps support several vital body functions and activities that are pertinent for balanced living. No wonder, it is trending for all the right reasons.
