CBD Oil for Inflammation

Inflammation occurs as a natural protective response when the body is harmed. There are two types of inflammation: acute and chronic. Acute inflammation occurs following an injury, infection, or illness. The immune system unleashes immune cells to the affected area to protect it, causing redness and swelling. Chronic inflammation refers to a prolonged inflammatory response in the body. When inflammation lingers, it can detrimentally impact tissues and organs due to the increased production of free radicals, which results in oxidative stress, an imbalance between antioxidants and free radicals. Inflammation and oxidative stress are involved in many diseases. Chronic inflammation [...]
