Let’s face it: Inflammation happens. Whether after a tough day on the ski slopes or due to a chronic condition, we all experience swelling and pain from time to time. The good news is that, along with eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly, recent research has found that CBD may be an excellent way to reduce inflammation in the body.
There are many different reasons why your body may experience inflammation. Inflammation is a protective response after you experience injury or disease—it signals that white blood cells should be deployed to defend the area that has been harmed. This is called “acute inflammation.”
Contrast this to “chronic inflammation,” which occurs when inflammation persists over time and the white blood cells continue to be sent to an area of the body after it has healed. Confused, the white blood cells attack the body itself, causing injury, producing pain, and contributing to underlying illness.
Research suggests that CBD may be able to help ease both kinds of inflammation. It does this by interacting with the endocannabinoid system, which is a nerve-signaling system that helps to stabilize emotions, cognitive functioning, and physiological health. (It’s basically like your body’s motherboard.) Although the exact mechanism through which CBD functions in this system is still being studied, scientists have shown positive reductions in inflammation connected to the use of CBD.
The diseases that are connected to chronic inflammation are varied, and some are serious. Among them are cancers, heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis. Reducing inflammation in the body may play a key role in alleviating the symptoms of these illnesses, and CBD may be a helpful ally.
Here at Miraflora, we make the finest CBD from the finest soil. We grow our hemp on our USDA-certified organic farm in Boulder County, Colo., and our hemp scientists test it every step of the way for consistency, dosage, and to ensure there are zero pesticides or heavy metals.
Some products we recommend are our full-spectrum sublingual tinctures. When taken under the tongue, these tinctures absorb quickly into the bloodstream with a high bioavailability rate. (You can learn more about why bioavailability is important here.)
We also have soft gels, which are easy to take on the go and great for people who don’t enjoy the taste of hemp flower oil. Our CBD Recovery Balm, which infuses aromatic oils and full-spectrum CBD into a base of extra virgin coconut oil and virgin shea butter, is a topical that may provide relief for sore muscles and inflamed joints.
