    CBD strengthens the immune system. Sounds good. CBD turns down the volume on the immune system. Sounds bad. What??? Turns out, CBD does both. Whether it’s good or bad depends on your individual state of health.

    The Immune System Seeks Balance

    Everyone needs a properly working immune system. That part’s simple.

    A balanced immune system:

    • keeps us healthy
    • helps us fight disease and infection
    • uses inflammation as an effective response to threats to our health
    • destroys defective cells so they can’t become tumors

    An unbalanced or poorly working immune system:

    • can be too quick to use inflammation
    • responds to things that are not threats to our health
    • may lead to chronic inflammation, which researchers believe is a common factor in numerous diseases

    How Can CBD Oil Help The Immune System?

    CBD works with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which helps keep the various systems in the body in balance — including the immune system. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can help tone down or boost the immune system as needed.

    Who Needs the Immune System Toned Down?

    People with autoimmune diseases — where the immune system is hyperactive, responding to healthy cells in the body as if they were threats. Diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, MS, lupus, IBS, Parkinson’s, HIV/AIDS and about 80 others fall into this category.

    Hyperactivity causes inflammation, which can:

    • lead to stiffness
    • cause pain
    • even damage cells, tissues and organs
    • cause chronic inflammation, which is linked to allergies, asthma, diabetes and more

    In cases like these, the immune system needs to be toned down. CBD can suppress specific parts of the immune system — like the one dealing with inflammation — without shutting all of it down, which could cause other problems. That makes it a promising option, which you should discuss with your doctor before trying.

    Who Needs the Immune System Boosted?

    Healthy people want to stay that way. Stress, overwork, anxiety, lack of sleep and other factors can throw our immune system off balance. CBD can help restore the balance we need by helping to:

    • maintain a healthy response to infection and disease
    • repair damage in the body
    • create new, healthy cells
    • keep inflammation under control, activating it only when needed
