Many of us has process of inflammation and don’t even know. Sometimes we can only feel a pain or see a redness.
Inflammation occurs as a natural protective response when the body is harmed. There are two types of inflammation: acute and chronic.
Acute inflammation occurs following an injury, infection, or illness. The immune system unleashes immune cells to the affected area to protect it, causing redness and swelling.
Chronic inflammation refers to a prolonged inflammatory response in the body. When inflammation lingers, it can detrimentally impact tissues and organs due to the increased production of free radicals, which results in oxidative stress, an imbalance between antioxidants and free radicals.
Is immune system related to inflammation?
Inflammation is part of the immune system’s response to infection or physical injury.
During this process, pathogens (germs) and damaged tissue are removed. When the body inflames an infected area, it allows the immune cells to move in to remove what’s necessary to allow the body to return to its previous harmonious state.
However, problems arise when the process of inflammation lasts longer than required or spreads from the initial site requiring a response.
Chronic inflammation and auto-immune disease are both classic examples of when the immune system get activated improperly, leading to persistent inflammation or healthy cells coming under attack from our own immune system.
Does endocannabinoid system (ECS) work to reduce inflammation in our body?
There has been some initial research to suggest that by tweaking the ECS, the effects of inflammatory diseases can be lessened or eradicated completely, since endocannabinoids are so instrumental in the regulation of immune responses.
This makes sense when you consider the role of the ECS during the process of an immune response triggered by a bacterial infection.
To begin with, immune cells detect the presence of the infection and send out pro-inflammatory signals, alerting more immune cells to come and help deal with the infection.
Whilst endocannabinoids are also generated to signal for more immune cells to respond, crucially, they also regulate that response so that it isn’t excessive.
The pivotal ECS regulation of the immune system, allows the usual immune response to take place, whilst ensuring that it comes to a stop once the necessary restorative work has been completed.
This prevents excessive inflammation, and allows the cells within the infected area to return to a state of homeostasis.
How CBD oil can help to reduce inflammation?
The reason that cannabis-derived cannabinoids (known as phytocannabinoids) such as THC or CBD have psychoactive or healing effects on the body is because of their interaction with the ECS.
Using Gramina CBD oil, we can CBD and THC interact with ECS through receptors CB1 and CB2, and helping immune system to get strong enough to overcome inflammation.
I said Gramina CBD oil, because it contains CBD and TH (less than 0.3%). It is very important to has both cannabinoids, so it will be more efficient without getting high.
Beside CBD and THC, Gramina CBD oil contains CBG, CBN, CBC, CBL, CBDA and other cannabinoids. So look at the chart what are the effects that this oil can get you.
