Ever since the Coronavirus, or COVID-19, burst upon the scene many people have been wondering if CBD could be an effective treatment for the viral infection?
The simple answer to that question is no one knows for sure. There simply haven’t been enough tests done to accurately say whether taking CBD could reduce the negative impact of the Coronavirus or lead to a quicker recovery after infection.
There are now tests underway though that may give a clearer picture of how CBD reacts with COVID-19. For example:
The goal of these new studies is to determine whether CBD can slow down the inflammation that leads to the severe health symptoms experienced by some Coronavirus patients.
The bottom line is only time, and studies like these, will tell whether CBD can have positive treatment effects against the Coronavirus.
While CBD, or Cannabidiol, is still relatively new to the scene there have been a quite a few studies conducted on it in the past.
Some of these studies have shown that it may reduce inflammation.
For example, an article entitled “Cannabidiol (CBD) — what we know and what we don’t” which was published at the Harvard Health Publishing website says:
“CBD may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain. A study from the European Journal of Pain showed, using an animal model, CBD applied on the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Another study demonstrated the mechanism by which CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat.”
In a study entitled “Cannabinoids as novel anti-inflammatory drugs,” researchers determined “Cannabinoids suppress inflammatory response and subsequently attenuate (reduce) disease symptoms.”
It’s this type of action that has caught the attention of scientists and which has spurred the tests that are currently underway involving CBD and the Coronavirus.
It is now believed that inflammation is a leading cause of serious illness and it can also dramatically impact our quality of life.
In fact, most experts now think that chronic inflammation may be the cause of such major diseases as Alzheimer's disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and Parkinson's disease.
This is called the “Inflammation Theory of Disease” and it’s very popular right now in the scientific community.
Inflammation has also been associated with the development of many of the signs we typically associate with aging.
Inflammation can make your skin look dull and wrinkly and it can cause aches and pains in your hips, knees, back and shoulders that make even the simplest movements more difficult.
If CBD does reduce inflammation, as the animal studies seem to indicate, it could have a tremendous impact on the population at large.
Those who take CBD could move more nimbly and freely and they could also look younger – and we all know how much looking younger is in demand these days. Nobody wants to look their age.
Well, again it is simply not known whether CBD could be part of a treatment for COVID-19.
But what is known is that:
CBD’s believed effects on inflammation are why researchers are so interested in studying it more.
In a study entitled, “Pharmacotherapeutic considerations for use of cannabinoids to relieve pain in patients with malignant diseases” researchers determined that CBD may help reduce both inflammation and pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity in the body.
Specifically, scientists now believe that CBD binds to the CB1 and CB2 receptors in our endocannabinoid system.
The endocannabinoid system, by the way, is a relatively new discovery. It has receptors throughout our bodies and is involved in almost all of our brain and body functions.
We already know that our ECS system plays a big role in how we handle pain as well as stress and anxiety. It is also involved in our mobility and our muscle health.
Our endocannabinoid system basically keeps us in balance. And CBD is the all-natural fuel that keeps this system operating optimally.
If you would like to try CBD to reduce inflammation or to reduce pain and anxiety, it’s important to understand that the benefits you receive from taking CBD will depend greatly on the quality of the product that you purchase.
You should look for a product that contains 100% natural ingredients and that is made using only ingredients that are tested for purity and quality.
The product should also have no artificial fillers, flavorings, or colorings; just premium ingredients you can trust.
