Whether it comes as a result of an injury or a chronic condition, inflammation is part of the lives of millions of Americans who struggle to find effective solutions at affordable prices and without secondary effects. When inflammation remains untreated for long periods, it can result in damaged tissues, fats and even DNA.
The causes of inflammation can be linked to everything from simple bruises or injuries to more serious conditions such as arthritis, diabetes and hypertension. These factors share a common element: an increased production of free radicals, commonly called “oxidative stress”. While different treatments can target inflammation through several mechanisms, most of them encourage the production of antioxidants in the body to fight back against oxidative stress.
Cannabidiol: A Natural Antioxidant
With a radical increase in the consumption of oxidative substances in junk food, smoke and poor air quality, it has become more important than ever for us to find ways to provide our bodies with adequate levels of antioxidants and fight back against diseases. Several scientific studies have shown that cannabidiol is an effective antioxidant with neuroprotective effects that can treat and prevent several health conditions by interacting with the endocannabinoid system.
While the public debate had been always limited by the grey legal situation of CBD before the passing of the United States Farm Bill in 2018, even the US Government has recognized that cannabinoids are an effective treatment for inflammatory, autoimmune and other oxidation-related conditions. Nowadays, with cannabidiol being legal across the entire country, everyone can enjoy its antioxidant levels and live longer, healthier lives.
Treating Inflammation from a Cellular Level
While providing your body with antioxidants is a great way to help it prevent and fight back against inflammation, cannabidiol goes one step forward and targets its root cellular causes. As it is absorbed into the bloodstream, CBD provides a natural balance to the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for many of the inflammatory responses of the body. Cannabidiol can curb down the production of inflammatory cells, therefore reducing the symptoms of joint pains, sore muscles and other conditions leading to inflammation.
Which CBD Products are the Best Anti-inflammatories?
While any high-quality cannabidiol will have positive effects to reduce the inflammation in your body, your specific condition should determine whether CBD tinctures or edibles are optimal. If you suffer from localized inflammation as a result of injuries, physical exercise or degenerative conditions, our line of Body Balms is the best choice. They contain not only different concentrations of high-quality cannabidiol, but also extracts from the widely used german chamomile, arnica, geranium and other natural anti-inflammatories.
On the other hand, if you are looking for a wide-range solution to chronic pain in different parts of your body, our high-quality CBD Oils will balance your entire endocannabinoid system and provide a general sensation of calm and wellbeing. While these extracts can be added to your favourite meals or drinks, we always recommend sublingual administration, as it is the most effective method to deliver fast and long-lasting results.
Finally, for those who want to enjoy all the benefits of cannabidiol but do not particularly like the bitter taste of raw hemp, our THC-Free CBD Isolate oils can be a better solution using MCT carrier.
The most important aspect to consider before purchasing any CBD extract to deal with inflammation is quality. Down to Earth products are made with premium hemp grown under controlled conditions and extracted using a clean C02 method that does not use artificial ingredientsor any harmful chemicals.
