We are currently living through anxiety provoking times. The coronavirus is the perfect recipe to turn even the most laid back and centered among us into worrying wrecks, imagining the most catastrophic (although unlikely) outcomes for ourselves and our loved ones. And that, dear friends, is the day-to-day life of someone living with anxiety. 8 of 10 Americans are affected by stress. To put this into perspective, that’s 79% of 327.16 million people. Chances are you’re one of those people. CBD can help relieve anxiety and stress and help with the damage they can do to your immune system.
Is It Stress or Anxiety?
Before you decide which treatment is right for you, it’s important to understand exactly what your body is going through. You’ve likely heard the terms stress and anxiety used interchangeably, however, these are two very different things. Stress and anxiety share many of the same physical and emotional symptoms. Both can take a heavy toll on the body. It can be difficult to spot the differences between the two, however, it’s pertinent that you understand and can identify which you are struggling with. Stress is what your body does in response to a threatening situation. Anxiety is a reaction to that stress. Once you’ve determined which disorder, if not both, is clouding over you, you can properly begin treatment. CBD oil can work well to treat both stress and anxiety.
Before trying to understand CBD’s effect on our immune system, it’s important to briefly discuss the system itself. Immune health is a term that refers to the group of cells and organs in our bodies that work together to destroy infections, viruses and all other agents that could pose a threat to people’s bodies. It’s a very important system that keeps us healthy, especially in times of stress. Immune systems are also in charge of monitoring and eliminating cells that aren’t functioning properly. The endocannabinoid system has an influence on most cells in the body, including the ones belonging to your immune system.
Like most things cannabis, the endocannabinoid system is not wholly understood. Data shows that CBD and other properties of cannabis have anti-inflammatory properties, acting as an immunosuppressant and an immunomodulator. These are very technical terms that basically mean that CBD suppresses the functions of your body’s immune system and keeps it active when underperforming.
If you’re a healthy person, stimulating your immune system isn’t something you should be concerned about. But if you’re someone who struggles with an autoimmune disease or a hyperactive immune system, CBD could provide a helpful option.
Research specifically on CBD oil has found no negative side effect thus far, unlike prescription anxiety medications, which produce a multitude of negative side effects, not limited to dizziness, memory problems, slurred speech, vomiting, blurred vision, loss of sex drive, weight changes, and more.
