Cannabis: A Safe and Powerful Anti-Inflammatory
Remarkably, studies show that cannabis is over 20x stronger as an anti-inflammatory agent than aspirin, and 2x stronger than prescription hydrocortisone. It contains over 100 active compounds, and the two most investigated are THC and CBD.
Both of these cannabinoids have powerful anti-inflammatory effects, but they get there in different ways, mediated by how they interact with the body through different receptors.
THC proves more effective for managine neurodegenerative diseases, chronic pain, and cardiovascular inflammation, and swelling. CBD, on the other hand, seems to be somewhat better suited for digestive issues and muscle recovery, but it also has a positive effect on many of the same symptoms as THC. Because of its effects on a broad array of conditions, people are increasingly turning to CBD for inflammation treatment and management.
Using CBD for Inflammation
The potential of cannabis to treat the epidemic of chronic inflammatory disease is truly incredible. It may not be a miracle cure, but the number of people who find relief through it is miraculous enough. Better still, there’s no catch (well, except maybe federal regulations, depending on where you live).
