So, let us help you navigate through the millions of articles on CBD to give you a better understanding of what it can and can’t do.
COVID-19: Is CBD going to help?
It’s important to understand that there are many, many benefits to cannabis products. But, it does not help to make claims that are not backed by research or clinical trials. Currently, there isn’t a cure or treatment for the COVID-19 virus. However, there are things that CBD can do to either help in reducing your risk of getting it, ease the symptoms or put your mind at ease during a stressful time.
1. Boosting your immune system
Through this COVID-19 crisis, we have all heard that the most vulnerable are those who are elderly or have an underlying health condition. Studies have shown that CBD can influence your immune system and have a positive effect, especially if you have an auto-immune disease. CBD also has been shown to slow the growth of cancer cells and induce tumor cell death. And research is pointing that it could possibly do the same with cells infected with a virus.
2. Support for your respiratory system
We all have heard that one of the main symptoms of COVID-19 is the attack on your respiratory system. CBD is a bronchodilator and is used to treat asthma. When bronchioles become constricted and the flow of oxygen constrained, CBD opens up the bronchioles and dilates the respiratory passage making it easier to breathe.
3. Relieves pain
One of the most known benefits of CBD is its ability to act as a pain reliever. It has positive effects on those suffering pain anywhere from headaches to multiple sclerosis. Though the Coronavirus doesn’t specifically cause pain, CBD helps with the pain caused by the fever.
4. Support through addiction recovery
There have been studies conducted that show CBD to help those recovering from a variety of drug addictions, including nicotine. Seeing that this virus targets the lungs, now is a good time to consider giving up the habit.
5. Relieves stress and anxiety
So, on an average day, a large part of our society is under some sort of stress or are experiencing anxiety. During this crisis, I’m sure everyone is anxious and trying to figure out how to navigate through different and constantly changing scenarios. CBD helps with all types of anxiety disorders, including general anxiety, social anxiety disorder, and PTSD. Also, it is a stress reliever, calming the body and mind.
Looking for CBD products?
It is comforting to know all the things that CBD helps with. But, it is still important that the product that you use is of high-quality. If you decide to buy CBD at a discount or convenience store, you are most likely going to be disappointed with the experience.
