More and more research is being conducted around the world to study the benefits of CBD in the treatment of certain diseases. Cannabinoids regulate the immune system. So, can CBD boost our immunity to better resist viruses and microbes?
CBD and the endocannabinoid system, what do we know?
Although the mechanisms of action are not yet well known and there are still many grey areas to be clarified, it is increasingly certain that CBD interacts with the body’s immune system.
A great deal of research is, therefore, being conducted worldwide on the use of CBD for medical purposes. In particular, studies have been carried out on the use of cannabinoids in the treatment of certain autoimmune diseases. They have demonstrated their anti-inflammatory action.
Other studies have looked at the pain-relieving action of CBD to relieve cancer patients from the devastating effects of chemotherapy. Again, cannabinoids are effective. The research conducted converges towards the same conclusion: the CBD acts as a regulator or modulator of the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system plays a major role in the essential functions of the body: pain management, digestive functions, stress, energy, etc.
But can we say that cannabis is a panacea that could boost our immunity against viruses such as COVID 19?
It is impossible to say. Research is too patchy to give a precise answer. The action of CBD is moreover dependent on the pathology treated, the patient (his/her morphology, consumption habits, etc.), and the doses consumed. Only one thing is certain, there is not yet any research made public on possible interactions between CBD and coronavirus. Products containing CBD can in no way be recommended to provide protection against Covid19 or to treat patients suffering from it.
CBD to boost immunity
This is not to say that the CBD is useless in these times of pandemic! The good health of our immune system is indirectly influenced by factors such as stress or lack of sleep.
It is well known that people who are depressed or stressed out daily have lowered their immunity and are much more sensitive to all the germs and viruses that can pass through. However, in these times of confinement, economic problems, lack of contact with family and friends, social life reduced to the bare minimum, some of you may feel depressed or even stressed.
The CBD can help you through these difficult times. By offering you a moment of relaxation with a CBD oil massage, a CBD spray, or a good recipe of CBD, it will be easier for you to get through the difficult times. Cannabinoids are the ideal product to relax you without side effects.
CBD is a precious help to be more serene and has a good sleep even when the context does not lend itself to it. By helping you to see life on the right side and promoting calm nights, the consumption of CBD-based products brings a sense of well-being to your daily life.
