When inflammation occurs, chemicals from the body's white blood cells are released into the blood or affected tissues to protect your body from foreign substances. Some of the chemicals cause a leak of fluid into the tissues, resulting in swelling. This protective process may stimulate nerves and cause pain. Inflammation and swelling are a result of training but do nothing to aid in recovery and actually hinder our body’s natural healing process. By eliminating inflammation, we are able to reduce pain and accelerate recovery.
Inflammation not only causes pain but creates an environment that harmful foreign substances can thrive in. This can unfortunately lead to the generation of many diseases. Some diseases caused by inflammation include: lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease and Crohn's disease. When we combine the short-term effects of inflammation like swelling and discomfort with the long-term effects such as disease, we begin to see just how serious of a problem it can be. The faster that you eliminate inflammation the less time you give harmful pathogens to develop within your body and ultimately lead to disease. Cannabidiol (CBD) has been shown to reduce inflammation and has emerged as the perfect natural remedy. Hemp Oil, which is rich in CBD, is becoming the go-to in the recovery of many of the most competitive athletes in the world. By using hemp oil, you will find that you not only recover faster but feel better.
