How Does CBD Work to Combat Inflammation?

Rescue 1 CBD was created 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.

We are also here to provide products and information to help them ease into the after service period of their retirement.

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

In one of our previous articles in our blog series, we talked about the science behind the benefits of CBD for sleep. Keep following along with our new piece as we highlight some of the most current information on combatting inflammation with CBD.

Inflammation, CBD, & Our Endocannabinoid System

Creating a Balanced Future

Let us 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 is showing that many CBD products offer a wide range of temporary relief from pain and soreness surrounding inflammation.

It was shown that high concentrations of topically applied CBD are able to activate our ECS through receptors in our skin (that 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.
