Research on CBD Progresses in Finding Relief from Inflammation

As ​research progresses, studies around the potential anti-inflammatory properties of cannabidiol (CBD) are looking promising.  Many different types of people are trying to find relief in utilizing CBD to help manage pain, recover quickly from injury, and stay on top of their symptoms for various diseases or even just the aging process in general.
CBD works within the endocannabinoid system of the body.  Studies have shown that, when used long-term, CBD could help keep inflammation levels low. Inflammation can be caused by a myriad of catalysts, and is a necessary process of the body to protect us from infection and other threats. However, when these responses become out of balance, pain ensues.  Untreated, long-term inflammation can causes diseases ranging from asthma to cancer. 
The more research done on this cannabinoid shows that people across the board might benefit from the use of CBD.  It has been found that ​athletes are implementing CBD​ into their regimens in hopes of faster recovery time after injury and a better, easier integration of muscle building post-workout.  People looking to manage effects of the aging process are finding that CBD might help to soothe old injuries, reduce swelling in joints, and keep the body functioning smoothly.  Those in chronic pain are turning to CBD to potentially manage their pain and offer a better quality of life.  In particular, autoimmune diseases such as arthritis, lupus, and fibromyalgia, which are mainly attributed to inflammation, have been under immense research of the effects of CBD.
Many people that struggle with arthritis and other muscular and joint inflammation find relief using topical treatments. Topicals are products like salves & balms (think Tiger Balm or Icy Hot) that are applied directly to the skin, typically at the area of inflammation. This might be a great way to manage pain as needed. Others may find that managing their inflammation is better done by ingesting edibles or tinctures for extended relief. Edibles can last up to eight hours but take about an hour to kick-in, and tinctures about four hours (but with a much faster onset).
The best way to choose which products are right for your own pain management is simply through trial-and-error. Be open to utilizing one or many different products determined by your body composition and pain levels. Always be sure to ask your budtender, sales representative, or primary physician for their educated opinion before starting any regimen.  Reach out to Fully Activated CBD to learn more about our full spectrum CBD products and pure CBD isolate!
