Might CBD Help Support Your Immune System?

The Short Answer is YES!

The growing body of research is pointing to CBD as a novel anti-inflammatory supplement.  One of the main reasons for this scientific fact is that cannabidiol or CBD can interfere with or inhibit the production of cytokines. Cytokines are proteins produced when the body is under stress or trauma and are responsible for acute and chronic inflammation (1, 2). 

Studies show CBD may bolster a weakened immune system so that it might help the body defend itself and prevent infection and inflammation.

Cannabis is also highly regarded as an immune-modulating component. This means it may have the ability to bring the immune system back in to balance when it is either over or under reacting to conditions within the human body (3). This is huge for people suffering from autoimmune diseases such as arthritis, Parkinson's disease, Multiple Sclerosis or HIV/AIDS.  These diseases are caused when the immune system becomes hyper vigilant in addressing non-threatening internal events and the result is the attack of otherwise healthy cells. 

The Endocannabinoid System:

How CBD Helps Supports Your Immune System

Virtually all animals, humans and pets have what is known as an endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is integral to many body functions, such as sensation, immune response, anxiety, sleep, mood, appetite, metabolism, and memory. It is kind of like a control mechanism that constantly scans your body and looks for anomalies or abnormalities that are out of balance or causing problems; for example conditions that might cause inflammation. CBD targets the endocannabinoid system by interacting with receptors in the brain and central nervous system to help promote balance, or homeostasis within the body. Without getting too technical, CBD binds with CB1 and CB2 receptors found in nerve and immune cells that are present in almost all organs within the body to keep them in balance.

Benefits Of CBD For The Immune System 

  • CBD is gaining traction worldwide by several health agencies, including the World Health Organization (WHO).  WHO comments "CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile" (4).  As a plant based healing compound it may also be safer than most over the counter prescription drugs that also carry many detrimental side effects. 
  • CBD is not not addictive and non-psychoactive, meaning it will not get you high, but you still may derive many of the health enhancing and pain relieving benefits (5). 
  • Studies referenced above demonstrate CBD's potential for helping regulate both a hyper active or under performing immune system.
  • CBD Oil does not require a prescription and is an unregulated substance.  That is why it is imperative to know and trust your provider.  

Why Is The Mother's Best CBD The Best Choice For Me and My Pets?

The Mother's Best CBD products are all small batch, organically grown and sourced from our own North Carolina Farm. We don't grow hundreds of acres of hemp and our plants get daily care and attention. We organically feed them in the mornings at sunrise and play them music while we are tending to them. As a result, our plants are more robust and healthy with significantly higher CBD content as well as cannabinoid and terpene profiles. 

Isn't it worth $2 a day to see If CBD IS Right For You?
