Cannabidiol or CBD is becoming more and more popular both with those suffering from different ailments and also in many cases their doctors too. CBD is found in the cannabis plant but does not have the psychotropic effects of marijuana. Research concerning CBD and inflammation is ongoing but early evidence suggests it can relieve inflammation in the body. Inflammation is the body’s natural response to any injury or infection, but ongoing inflammation can create chronic issues that can result in damage to the body’s organs and tissues.
CBD works indirectly on inflammation by blocking the action of the FAAH enzyme that breaks down an important endocannabinoid named anandamide. This allows the body to create more anandamide that can help reduce inflammation. Currently, those suffering inflammation will typically use anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen that can help, but have side effects including hypertension, bleeding, diarrhea, or shortness of breath.
CBD offers a fantastic alternative to these over-the-counter drugs without the side effects. At most taking too much CBD will make you drowsy. It is exceedingly rare that people experience negative side effects from CBD alone. If using a CBD Isolate product there is almost no chance of experiencing negative side effects, if using a full-spectrum CBD product there is a slightly greater chance of experiencing more side effects due to the presence of low quantities of THC and other cannabinoids. To avoid experiencing negative side effects while using CBD start at a low dose and work your way up slowly.
Another advantage of CBD is that you can take it in a variety of ways including adding it to the foods you already eat. This can be useful for those who have trouble swallowing pills.
