Should You Be Using CBD to Boost Your Immune System so You Can Better Resist, or Recover From, the Coronavirus?
As the Coronavirus continues to sweep across the globe people everywhere are wondering what they can do to avoid getting the virus or, if they do get it, to help keep their symptoms mild.
Many of these people have turned their attention to CBD, or Cannabidiol, which was in the news a lot before the Coronavirus came along and stole all the headlines.
CBD has been associated with a number of health benefits, including the relief of stress and anxiety and also the relief of pain.
But it’s another potential benefit that is drawing the attention of those who don’t want to get sick from Coronavirus.
Experts say that CBD also helps strengthen your immune system – a stronger immune system could help a person better resist the Coronavirus and also, should they get the virus, could help keep their symptoms mild instead of severe.
So should you be taking CBD for the Coronavirus? Let’s take a closer look:
Cannabidiol is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. There are two types of cannabis plants – hemp and marijuana.
CBD actually has a colorful history. It was the world’s leading medicine for some 5,000 years.
It’s true. In China, India and Egypt — it’s healing power was enjoyed by two-thirds of the world. It was even used by royalty like Queen Victoria, England’s longest-running monarch.
In ancient medicine books, CBD featured prominently as a key herbal remedy.
The oldest forms of medicine — Ayurveda (Indian) and Chinese — prescribed it as a top herb.
And more recently, CBD was America’s No. 1 medicine.
Doctors prescribed it for just about everything you can imagine. Until the early 20th century, it made up HALF of all prescribed medications in America.
What happened in the early 20th Century? Countries, including America, began banning marijuana, that’s what.
But as it turns out, we have now learned that the CBD from hemp, which is legal around the world, is just as good, if not better, than the CBD from marijuana.
So now you don’t have to worry about getting “high” or violating any laws when you take hemp-grown CBD.
According to recent research, the answer to that question appears to be a resounding … “YES!”
This study showed that cannabinoids, like Cannabidiol, interfere with the release of cytokine, which are proteins that are involved in acute and chronic inflammation.
The presence of inflammation weakens the immune system – and it also happens to be the leading cause of disease and illness.
Secondly, CBD has also been shown to be immune-modulating (study, Russo S. op. cit.), which means it plays an integral role in keeping the immune system functioning properly instead of over or under-reacting to threats. For example, diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and HIV/Aids are characterized by an immune system that overreacts and starts attacking healthy cells in the body.
Thirdly, CBD has been shown to relieve stress and anxiety. For example, in the study “Cannabidiol as a Potential Treatment for Anxiety Disorders” scientists found that “Evidence from human studies strongly supports the potential for CBD as a treatment for anxiety disorders … CBD reduces experimentally induced anxiety in healthy controls, without affecting baseline anxiety levels, and reduces anxiety in patients with SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).”
This is important because stress and anxiety have been shown to weaken the immune system, which can make it easier to catch a viral infection like Coronavirus.
The bottom line is available research seems to indicate that taking CBD regularly can be a great way to help keep your immune system stronger.
A properly functioning immune system keeps your body healthy by protecting it from disease, and by fighting disease when you become sick.
Your tonsils, appendix, stomach, adenoids, lymph nodes, spleen, thymus, bone marrow, and Peyer’s patches are all part of your immune system.
This complex system of organs, proteins, cells and tissues functions together to identify and kill pathogens and tumor cells. It also detects a wide variety of foreign intruders, from viruses (like the Coronavirus) to parasitic worms, and has the ability to distinguish them from your body’s own healthy cells and tissues.
This is no easy task, because invading pathogens can evolve rapidly, producing adaptations that avoid the immune system and allow disease and infection to spread throughout your body.
There has been a lot of talk recently about vaccines but the truth is vaccines are often unnecessary if you have a properly functioning immune system. That’s because a strong immune system will begin manufacturing antibodies on first exposure to a virus.
You can now have CBD delivered right to your home. And again, hemp-grown CBD is entirely safe and non-toxic. Plus, it’s 100% legal.
And it’s been shown to work starting with just one drop!
You just need to know which formulas are the real deal and which are fakes.
