Despite the inconveniences of inflammation, it is a normal, healthy process for the body when we sustain an injury or germs attack us. CBD may help. CBD carries potent anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties, translating to anti-inflammatory effects. CBD may also treat oxidative stress-related issues with some success. In fact, the following conditions are affected by oxidative stress and may therefore benefit from CBD: rheumatoid arthritis, types 1 and 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer disease, hypertension, the metabolic syndrome, ischemia-reperfusion injury, depression, and neuropathic pain. Imagine the potential for CBD in treating these myriad conditions.
