CBD Benefits for Inflammation and Arthritis
Inflammation / Arthritis
CBD’s anti-inflammatory effects are believed to be linked to its ability to interact with receptors in immune cells. CBD interacts with CB2 receptors, which are generally located inside immune cells. By activating these receptors, CBD is able to evoke a wide variety of immune responses. One of these responses is to fight inflammation. Conditions like arthritis, MS and many others, are characterized by chronic inflammation. In some cases, this inflammation can be caused by a malfunctioning of the immune system, causing it to attack healthy cells. By helping lower inflammation, CBD can help reduce pain and other symptoms of conditions like arthritis and more.
