How Does CBD Work to Combat Inflammation?

We created Rescue 1 CBD to challenge the status quo of health and wellness in our fire service. We are always aiming to increase the longevity of firefighters and first responders during their careers. In one of our previous articles, we talked about the science behind the benefits of CBD for sleep. Keep following along with our new piece as we answer the question: does CBD combat inflammation?


Inflammation, CBD, & Our Endocannabinoid SystemBody systems the endocannabinoid system regulates

Creating a Balanced Future

Let’s take a quick look at something we will go over (and over) again due to its importance in bodily regulation: The Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This system is one of our body’s most vital regulatory systems.

Current research suggests that the CBD compound works to interact with endocannabinoid receptors in the brain and immune system.

Subsequently, the connection that the CBD compound has with our receptors shows that this cannabinoid may help regulate our ECS which can in turn provide anti-inflammatory effects.


Adhering to the Current Research on Inflammation

How is CBD helping with recovery management?

To begin, various bodily inflammation issues require relief. Current research shows that many CBD products offer a wide range of temporary relief from pain and soreness surrounding inflammation.

Research shows that high concentrations of topically applied CBD are able to activate our ECS through receptors in our skin. These receptors are responsible for the regulation of pain and inflammation.

In addition, a separate study also suggests that using CBD properly and with correct dosages can help to reduce pain and inflammation.

These findings support cannabinoid induced suppression of chronic pain and inflammation, meaning that CBD may present itself as a therapeutic agent for pain and inflammation reduction treatment.

What’s more, the researchers found that subjects in the above studies were not likely to build up a tolerance to the effects of CBD.

While more research is certainly necessary, these preliminary studies point towards a positively increased role of CBD and other cannabinoids when it comes to their use in combatting inflammation.

I hope you got something out of this article. If you did, please share it around the firehouse so we can spread the word about CBD that’s safe for the job.

We are also here to provide products and information to help first responders stay healthy well into retirement. Our content is aimed at leaving the Fire Service better than we found it by letting firefighters have a more common sense-based standard for physical and mental wellness. 

Our enduring goals are: improving our first responders’ sleep and physical/mental health and helping them to cut back on the number of medications required to do what they do on a daily basis.
