CBD and Inflammation

One of my favorite properties about CBD is it’s anti-inflammatory effect on the body. While inflammation is apart of the body’s immune response, it isn’t always perfect. It can be beneficial when, for example, your knee sustains a blow and tissues need care and protection. However, sometimes, inflammation can persist longer than necessary, causing more harm than benefit. People with chronic inflammation are susceptible to asthma, tuberculosis, arthritis, Chrones, various types of cancer, and in some cases Alzheimer’s. Additionally, our environment can be causing inflammation in ways we don’t even realize. Are you eating an all organic diet? are you breathing in factory fumes or car exhaust on a daily basis? Do you drink a lot of soda? Because of these exposures, inflammation is likely running rampant in your body, and more importantly, your brain. Luckily for us, CBD can counteract this effect.

CBD and skin care

Whether you are struggling with acne, eczema, or psoriasis, or just looking to add a skin care routine to your regiment, CBD oil has been found to be monumentally beneficial. Firstly, hemp oil has the perfectly balanced 3 – 1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 essential fatty acids. This is important because these fatty acids have been shown to smooth and firm the skin, improve the structure of skin cells, remove waste products from the body, and leave skin feeling silky and smooth. Additionally, CBD products are a great source of skin friendly Vitamins. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that promotes the growth of healthy skin tissue. Vitamin C is a building block of collagen, which helps skin elasticity, skin tone, and brightens the skin. Finally, the presence of Vitamin B6 which lends itself to skin firmness.

Curcumin and CBD for Pain Relief

Curcumin is the main active ingredient in Tumeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects, and is a very strong anti-oxidant (much like CBD). Why is this important? Because inflammation is the main cause for almost every chronic, “Western” disease. This includes heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s and various degenerative conditions, just to name a few. By combining CBD with Curcumin in a soft-gel form, people are finally finding relief from pain like never before!
