5 Autoimmune Disorders CBD Can Help

Industrial Hemp used to make Hemp Oil and CBD

  1. Rheumatoid Arthritis.  CBD oil interacts with two receptors, called CB1 and CB2, to reduce pain and the effects of inflammation. In one research experiment, data indicate that topical CBD application has therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviours and inflammation without evident side-effects.

  2. Celiac Disease. While THC helps to slow down the digestion and movement of food in the digestive tract, CBD works with CB2 receptors in the gut, to help against autoimmune attacks on the small intestine caused by consuming gluten.

  3. Fibromyalgia. Chronic pain disorder that causes musculoskeletal pain in addition to fatigue and cognitive issues. A 2009 study found that CBD can be used for relieving neuropathic pain. Researchers found CBD to be an effective alternative treatment because it significantly reduced pain symptoms.

  4. Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). Recent research shows that CBD helps support health guy activity. The cannabinoid’s anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects make it a promising therapeutic agent for treating IBS symptoms like pain and inflammation. In this study, CBD can slow the course of the disease, improve symptoms, and increase the efficacy of available drugs for the treatment of disorders such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease.

  5. Diabetes. Diabetes was once believed to be a metabolic disorder, researchers now believe that the insulin resistance is a product of the immune system attacking healthy tissue. The 2005 research paper from the American Alliance for Medical Cannabis (AAMC) lists numerous benefits that both CBD and cannabis can have for diabetes sufferers including stabilizing blood sugars

If you decide to use CBD products for pain management or medical conditions, be sure to consult with a doctor first to help avoid harmful interactions with your current medications and treatments, along with negative side effects.
