    CBD Oils And The Immune System

    There have been a lot of claims about CBD and its benefits; however, there is so much information out there knowing which one might be true and important. Some might be asking, can CBD help with the immune system. This article will discuss CBD, its relation with the endocannabinoid system, and how it influences your Immune system.

    The cannabis plant has for a long time been in man’s life has been as a recreational and medicinal supplement. However, there have been so many medical claims about CBD, and it might be hard to know which just claims are not true and which work. CBD has a lot of benefits for your overall health, but does it help improve your immune system? An individual must do much research to determine how CBD affects your immune system. Let's look at the Immune system and how CBD might affect it in the best ways.

    CBD Oils And The Immune System

    CBD And The Endocannabinoid System

    Our body is a working marvel when we consider all the things that come together to work in harmony, imagine all the processes that go on to make normal actions like lifting your hand work. The endocannabinoid system is one of the systems that help make such actions and movements of the body possible. It's a network of receptors and cannabinoids made in the body, so as the cells throughout the body can pass signals, it is thought that CBD and THC interact with these receptors to give off the effects you feel. There are two types of endocannabinoid receptors; CB1 and CBD2. These two receptors are mostly found in the central nervous or peripheral nervous systems and work harmoniously whether you have consumed cannabis. The endocannabinoid system is thought by scientists to control different aspects of life such as mood, digestion, thinking, and memory. Some even think it is responsible for keeping track of the Sleep cycle and reproduction system, although all these claims need a lot of research.

    How Exactly Does CBD Work With The Endocannabinoid System?

    CBD and other cannabinoids are thought to interact with CB1 and CB2 receptors in the immune system to influence our normal cell activity. Researchers have found that CBD can maintain an immune system in many ways. Let's look at how CBD might help you better your immune systems.

    Helps Reduce Stress

    Stress can keep you from sleeping, which is one of the most important parts of our health as it helps us recover and gather the energy we need for the next day. Some research has shown that having a lot of stress can make you have poor health; CBD can help you maintain your stress levels, as Moltke & Hindocha (2021) explained, by making you enjoy a larger overall health advantage.

    If you feel like your immune system is weak, you can use other treatments with more evidence or opt for other natural ways, such as increasing your vitamin uptake and reviewing your sleep pattern. Although much research still needs to be done, some people have opted for CBD to improve their immune systems.

    Benefits to Autoimmune Conditions.

    Autoimmune is a disease when the body's natural defense system can't differentiate between its body cells and foreign material. Furgiuele et al. (2021)  explained that it is a disease that affects many people with over 80 types of autoimmune diseases that affect the body. Because CBD has amazing effects on inflammation and pain reduction, it acts as a suppressant to the over-reactive immune system.

    However, research on how CBD can help those with autoimmune conditions needs to be done to determine how positively it affects humans. Many autoimmune diseases include lupus, inflammatory bowel disease, and multiple sclerosis, but some researchers will prove the positive effects on humans.

    Other medical advantages of Using CBD oil

    Sekar & Pack (2019) stated that in 2018, the FDA approved a CBD drug, Epidiolex, to treat two rare epileptic conditions from Lenox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome in patients at least 2 years old. There has been extensive research on how CBD affects epileptic seizures, as those who have used CBD have resulted in a lower frequency of seizures. It has made it a favorite among those with Epileptic syndromes as a natural way to reduce the symptoms.

    CBD products have also been claimed to help those with diabetic conditions and complications in arteries. Recent research has proven that CBD can be used to reduce the levels of resisting, the protein that regulates sugar levels in the body which can reduce the effectiveness of insulin. De Araújo (2017) explained that CBD also boosts the production of the insulinotropic peptide. This hormone makes sure you release insulin from digested foods; it can help regulate insulin levels in the body, helping those with diabetic conditions.

    Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease are among the most common neurological diseases that are a problem to many. CBD oil can have amazing beneficial results in such diseases, although much research is still going to determine just how exactly CBD can be used to help patients. You can use the same anti-inflammatory with pain reduction properties of CBD to treat patients with arthritis. Arthritic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis have been under recent study as CBD usage has proven promising benefits for patients with the diseases. Although some might opt for CBD oil for such diseases, a lot of research is still needed to conclude the effect of CBD on these diseases.

    Side Effects Of CBD

    CBD products have many benefits for man's overall health; however, you must take precautions. Although CBD is safe for intake, some users have reported feeling fatigue, diarrhea, and a change in appetite. These side effects, however, vary from person to person and might depend on the dosage taken and the user's body mass, among other things.

    Moreover, most of these side effects are tolerable, so you don't have to worry much, although you must seek advice from your doctor before opting fully for CBD products.


    CBD products and the industry at large are still a field that requires more research on how they can affect human health. Although many people opt for this natural way of indirectly boosting your immunity through the ways, we have mentioned above. It has resulted in a recent surge in the usage of CBD products; this has pushed the need for more CBD products to be produced and more research to be done. If you are thinking of trying Out CBD products, there are several facts you might want to consider. Always ask for advice from your doctor before trying out CBD products.
