The Inflammation Epidemic and CBD

Published on 12/1/2018
For additional information  Click Here


Inflammation is the body’s immune system response to injury or infection. Sometimes inflammation becomes out of control.

It has been linked to many diseases and conditions.

It has been shown and is acknowledged that cannabidiol is a non-psychotropic (does not affect mental state) compound developed from cannabis. Most studies also concede that CBD has been shown to work with our internal Endocannabinoid System (ECS) with beneficial properties, including inflammation. 

As I combed through the internet looking for a possible cure for my Diabetes, Neuropathy, Arthritis, High Blood Pressure and RLS, many of the scientific studies I read suggested that inflammation was the root cause of some of the most common medical conditions.

This gave me a great deal of hope. If inflammation was a primary factor in so many powerful diseases (cancer, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, diabetes etc.) then my belief is just simple logic. If inflammation is the problem, and you get rid of some of the inflammation, then you have less of a problem.

As I gathered the data from various studies from the internet, it became apparent that not only is there an inflammation epidemic, but there is no doubt that many, if not all of the conditions can be lessened a great deal by natural anti-inflammatories.

Amongst the line-up of medical epidemics across America, Inflammatory Diseases are up there as the current crisis. Now looked upon as being one of the most dangerous conditions due to the high likelihood of more serious conditions developing from it, it is high time there was a more efficient treatment!


So, What Is Inflammation?

Inflammation is the body’s natural instinctive defense against injury, or harmful stimuli. It has been directly associated with a variety of conditions, some of which are listed below...

  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Depression
  • Neuropathy
  • Hypertension
  • ALS

These are just a handful of the conditions that are likely to develop as a result of chronic inflammation.

  • Across America, approximately 43 million people suffer from arthritis and joint diseases.
  • Around 30 million Americans have diabetes
  • A staggering 5.5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s Disease!

These statistics are pretty alarming and are the icing on the cake when it comes to inflammatory related diseases!


Guys, CBD Oil is a safe and effective way to get relief and sometimes even counteract these issues.  There are countless testimonies, but you hesitate, because you think, ohhhh CBD, marijuana, it's dope. 

NO IT IS NOT, it is a safe, natural alternative to the synthetic junk you are probably already taking that is causing countless side effects in your body. BUT, buyer beware...All CBD is NOT created equal.

How is Inflammation Causing You so Much Harm?

Inflammation can be broken down into two categories; Chronic Inflammation and Acute Inflammation as shown above.

As the names may suggest, Chronic inflammation relates to long-term inflammation that can occur as a result of foreign agents, or repetitive inflammatory issues. Acute inflammation is usually a direct result of illness or injury, and is normally short-lived.

There have been dozens of studies done into the dangers of long-term inflammation, with beliefs around our diets and lifestyles being huge contributing factors! For example, a high-fat diet usually leads to obesity, which has a direct link to inflammation, and diabetes.

While it may be possible to reduce the risk of inflammation, it is not always avoidable, and it is then a case of treating it with pain killers and anti-inflammatory pharmaceuticals, which we know are all too dangerous and let's not forget, addictive!

Some of the most common anti-inflammatory medications are:

  • Aspirin
  • Ibuprofen
  • Naproxen
  • Celecoxib

Unfortunately, the treatments on offer leave a lot to be desired, with many coming with a range of nasty side-effects such as:

  • Drowsiness
  • Sickness
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation

This is just a small sample of the side effects, but the list certainly doesn't stop there, and some of the most serious side effects include kidney and liver failure and let's not forget DEATH! So, it is no wonder that many sufferers are turning to CBD as a more natural and very effective treatment!

Here is an excellent example how lessening the level of inflammation directly lessens the intensity of a disease. Below is a scientific study that was done for ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). It's a horrible disease the has baffled scientists for many years. 

A few years ago scientists discovered that inflammation was a factor in ALS. As you will see, an anti-inflammatory treatment helped to lessen the effect of the disease. (It's crucial to remember that when it comes to healing inflammation, the hands of the scientific community are tied. There are no anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) on the market that don't create harmful side-effects with prolonged use). 

I'm NOT suggesting that any of conditions listed below are going to magically disappear after a few glasses of V8 juice. However, because they are all tightly bound to inflammation it only makes sense that if you get rid of the inflammation that is causing the problem, or at least lessen it, the harmful effects will also lessen.

Scientific Evidence Showing That... 

  • Acne
  • Acromegaly 
  • Aging 
  • Alzheimer's 
  • Amyloidosis 
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) 
  • Anemia 
  • Aortic Valve Stenosis 
  • Arthritis 
  • Asthma 
  • Ataxia 
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) 
  • Cancer 
  • Celiac Disease
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
  • Chronic Sarcoidosis
  • Chronic Venous Disorder
  • Colitis
  • Crohn's Disease
  • Cryoglobulinemia 
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Erectile Dysfunction (ED) 
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Heart Disease
  • Hodgkin Disease
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
  • Huntington's disease 
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Kidney Disease / Renal Failure
  • Liver Disease
  • Lupus
  • Lyme Disease
  • Migraines
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Narcolepsy 
  • Neuropathy
  • Obesity
  • Pancreatitis
  • Parkinson's
  • Poliomyelitis (Polio) 
  • Pregnancy
  • Psoriasis
  • Pulmonary Hypertension
  • Scleroderma 
  • Sjogren's Syndrome 
  • Sleep Apnea 
  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
  • Spinal Cord Conditions 
  • Stroke 
  • Tourette's Syndrome
  • Tuberculosis 

...are ALL directly linked to inflammation. 

What do heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, arthritis, allergies, asthma, gout and irritable bowel syndrome have in common? These and many other common health conditions are all associated with inflammation. Other diseases include MS, Osteoporosis, Obesity, Allergies including Asthma and Food Intolerances, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. 

Inflammation is now being recognized as the common link that may explain the association between otherwise distinct conditions. For example, did you know that there was an association between asthma and irritable bowel syndrome, or heart attack and dental problems, or gout and heart disease, or allergies and diabetes? It is now getting clearer that these conditions are related by the presence of inflammation. 

Leading researchers in completely different areas of medicine have independently and repeatedly come to the same conclusion; that inflammation plays a key role in the development of a variety of seemingly unrelated illnesses. 

What Is CBD?

If you have been hiding under a rock, you may not have heard about CBD yet! Trumping THC as the most talked about cannabinoid of the marijuana plant, Cannabidiol from the Hemp Plant is the non-psychoactive compound that packs a ridiculous list of benefits!

Here are just some of the incredible facts about CBD:

  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Anti-Oxidant
  • Anti-Anxiety
  • Anti-Carcinogenic
  • Anti-Depressant
  • Anti-Psychotic
  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Prebiotic

How Can CBD Be Used as An Anti-Inflammatory

Of all the qualities that CBD offers, it’s anti-inflammatory properties are arguably the most well-researched of the bunch. Being successfully utilized to treat almost all digestive conditions, as well as many other medical challenges, it is now looked upon as the most efficient anti-inflammatory  available - even beating out traditional options such as Vitamin C and Omega 3 supplements!

Like all cannabinoids, CBD interacts with our body upon consumption, but what is interesting about CBD in particular is that it works differently to many of the other researched compounds of the plant, particularly when it comes to interaction with the endocannabinoid system.

Each and every one of us has an Endocannabinoid system (ECS), which has control over regulating many of our bodily functions and ensuring that everything runs smoothly. The ECS releases natural cannabinoids that are vital for a range of physiological things, from the way we think to the way we feel pain. In fact, it plays a part in almost every aspect of our being!

When CBD is consumed, it interacts with the ECS and encourages it to produce an increased number of natural cannabinoids. By doing this, our body is better able to heal and regulate various functions. Also, not only does CBD help produce self-healing cannabinoids, but it also interacts with our CB2 receptors, which oversee our entire immune system!

Research on CBD as an anti-inflammatory!

Don’t just take my word for it! There have been dozens of published studies done into CBD as an effective anti-inflammatory! Here a few of the most relevant ones:

  • G.W. Booz from the University of Mississippi did a study published in 2011 into CBD as a helpful compound for the reduction of the impact that inflammation has on the body. His study found that CBD did, in fact, have a dramatic impact - so much so that it was able to decrease the risks of long-term organ damage!
  • A study published in 2016 that investigated the effects of CBD on rats with arthritis, showed that the application of CBD gel significantly reduced joint swelling. Their study concluded that topical CBD application was a successful treatment for arthritis pain and related behaviors, as well as for general inflammation — all without any evident side effects.
  • A study published in 2013 on mice with Acute Pancreatitis showed that the implementation of CBD decreased the enzyme activities as well as many other functions associated with the condition. The results showed that CBD presented high anti-inflammatory effects in the mice with AP, and again, with virtually zero adverse side-effects!

Final Thoughts

While more of us are turning to CBD for its powerful qualities, there seems to be a never-ending stream of things the compound is capable of!

As research continues into the positive benefits of CBD Oil, it is likely that even more individuals will move over to the natural herb as an anti-inflammatory medicine in the future!

There are millions of places you can get CBD Oil, and I have done Months of research and found that CTFO Brand 10xPure to be the absolute best is Exclusive, Patented and Powerful Best CBD Oil for Pain Relief.
