What Are The Benefits Of CBD For Your Immune System?

COVID-19- Probably the most discussed topic in recent history. It has put the world on lockdown, crippled economies, and seeded a deeper division between people than ever before. For those of you who aren’t familiar with COVID-19, it affects different people in different ways. Most infected people will develop mild to moderate illness and recover without hospitalization. Although most people will recover as they would from the normal flu. This pandemic has stirred chaos and promoted fear among the masses. I’m not here to get into the politics behind it though. 

I’m here to share with you guys some insight on ways you can optimize your health and immune system with Brothers N Arms PREMIUM CBD. Don’t mistake this for a claim stating that CBD can or will cure COVID-19 or anything of the sort. What we are sharing with you are simple and straightforward facts of how CBD can boost your immune system and how it does it. 

If you read my previous blog you got a detailed and in-depth breakdown of what CBD is and how it works with your body...but in case you missed it let’s do a quick review. You’ve likely heard about CBD by now and it’s a variety of health benefits. 

Cannabidiol (CBD), is a compound extract that comes from the cannabis/hemp plant. It’s not psychoactive and therefore won’t give you a ‘high’ feeling. Humans along with a variety of other mammals have what is referred to as the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). CBD helps boost this system by regulating CB2 receptors that are often found in our immune system and primarily impact pain and inflammation. 

Let’s take a deeper dive into CBD and how it affects the immune system. As previously mentioned, the CB2 receptors in the ECS are often found in your immune system. CB1 receptors can also be found in your immune system, although there are generally 10 to 100 times more CB2 receptors than CB1 receptors in your immune system. 

Immunosuppressants are agents that can suppress or prevent the immune response. They can treat autoimmune diseases such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn's disease. Some treatments for cancer act as immunosuppressants.

In simplest terms, immunomodulators are agents used to help regulate or normalize the immune system.

Another great benefit CBD has to offer is its anti-inflammatory properties. These properties can reduce the inflammatory response of the immune system. 

CBD can suppress the function and secretion of cytokines, which are large protein groups. Specific cells in your immune system secrete cytokines. The function of these proteins is to communicate with molecules that regulate the body's immunity, white blood cell production, and inflammation. 

CBD can suppress chemokine production. A chemokine is a group of cytokines that act as a chemoattractant, a chemical agent that induces an organism or a cell to migrate toward it. Chemokines can lead immune cells to an infected area so that white blood cells can attack and destroy microbes that are invading the infected area.

CBD can suppress T-Cell function and production, which helps suppress the immune system's ability to remember outside invaders. 

The evidence above proves that CBD has a positive impact on your immune system and in a big way. Now, all there's left to do is to find a reliable source of CBD and that’s where Brothers N Arms comes into ACTION!
