It seems that the COVID-19 crisis is slowly fleeting, and states across the nation are beginning to return to normalcy. Restaurants are beginning to re-open for dine-in service, gyms are reopening at half capacity, and shopping malls are reopening for retail therapy. Chances are you’ve been cooped up in the house, quarantined with close family and friends, thus not being exposed to any sort of new bacteria for your body to fight off. Consider strengthening your immune system before re-exposing yourself to the outside world to avoid getting sick.
Inflammatory Response and Our Immune System
Inflammatory response plays a key role in our immunity when it comes to damaged tissue and disease. When the inflammatory response is initiated, it will prevent the start of infections and heal damaged tissue and blood vessels. If the immune system cannot keep an infection under wraps, the inflammatory cells step in to prevent new or damaged tissue by reproducing effector cells. With that being said, the inflammatory response system and the immune system go hand-in-hand when it comes to fighting off infections and diseases.
CBD and Inflammatory Response
There is no question that CBD is known to have anti-inflammatory properties, thus being a key player in the overall functions of the inflammatory response system. CBD is associated with being a cure-all for aches and pains due to its anti-inflammatory properties, both internally and externally by signaling molecules called eicosanoids that assist in initiating the body’s inflammatory response. CBD is also being extensively explored as a way to reduce obesity due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Obesity can lead to a weaker immune system, and is said to be a major risk factor in contracting illness, such as COVID-19.
