Why You Need CBD For Your Immunity This Spring🌱
Spring is here! Who isn’t excited about warmer weather, budding flowers, and all that entails the earth coming back to life?
That said, a shift in seasons always seems to throw our bodies a little out of wack. Not to mention spring is synonymous with allergy season. As we break out of our hibernation, made 10x more isolating thanks to COVID, it’s important that we think about all we have protected our immune system from this past winter. To save our systems from the shock of stepping back out into the world, we want to talk about giving your body the support it needs to thrive.
How CBD Improves Immunity
CBD + the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
We all want to boost our immunity, but can CBD help? Absolutely! First let’s start with a quick refresh on CBD itself.
CBD, aka cannabidiol, is one of many cannabinoids present in the hemp plant, and thus Broad Spectrum hemp extract.
Broad-spectrum hemp extract = CBD + other beneficial cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and other naturally occurring plant compounds, sans THC.
Maybe this is old news, but did you know that the human body also makes cannabinoids?
You heard us right, the human body and the cannabis plant both make cannabinoids. Which means we are biologically programmed to use CBD and the other beneficial cannabinoids Broad Spectrum hemp extract provides.
Basically, the human body and plants are pretty damn magical.
So, how exactly does this work? Cannabinoids, whether created by our body or plants interact with our Endocannabinoid System. The “ECS” is a network of receptors throughout the human body’s cells and tissues responsible for maintaining homeostasis and balancing our stress, pain, inflammation, and immune responses.
Cannabinoids interact with the receptors in the ECS resulting in a remarkable number of health benefits including:
+ Stress relief
+ Reduced pain and inflammation
+ Better sleep, mood, and appetite
+ Overall homeostasis
All of which contribute to a stronger immune system.
Let’s dive in a little deeper shall we?
CBD interacts with receptors in the ECS to either boost or suppress our immune response, based on what our body needs.
👆 Boost = encourage white blood cell production
👇 Suppress = reduce inflammation
CBD also relieves stress which is a significant factor in our health.
Keep the Vibes High + Cortisol Low
Step aside Vitamin C! JK you should take that too. That said, there is so much more you can do for your immune system than just drinking extra OJ.
Let’s talk about stress. How are your stress levels? Meh, manageable, or teetering on out of control? Wherever you fall on the stress spectrum, CBD can help. Not to mention, stress management is crucial to a strong immune system.
