CBD can be used as a natural anti-inflammatory

Inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, is a condition that affects around 1 million Americans. Similar to Crohn’s disease, it causes excessive inflammatory responses in the gastrointestinal tract, often resulting in damage and disturbances in motility and secretion. Currently there are no cures for IBD and treatments work to help reduce the symptoms of the condition. CBD has been proven in many scientific studies to reduce inflammation all over the body. Because CBD is introduced into the endocannabinoid system, it helps with inflammatory issues throughout the entire body by opening up the CB2 receptors. Traditional prescription drugs and over the counter drugs often times only work to help specific parts of the body when it comes to inflammation. CBD is a safe and 100 percent naturally produced option to these traditional methods.
