These days people are always looking for ways to help boost their immune system. It has been suggested that CBD could be an asset to the immune system, but there is little specific research to date. Still, there is the potential for CBD to have an impact on some immune responses. 

On a daily basis your body is exposed to thousands of diseases, viruses, bacteria, and infections. Without your immune system, even something like the common cold could be incapacitating. So, how could Tribe CBD possibly help your immune system maintain its vital functions? Let’s take a closer look. 

What Is the Immune System?

In short, the immune system is the body’s best defense mechanism against infections. The immune system is a complex network of tissues, cells, and organs that defend the body against infection while also protecting the body’s cells. This vital bodily system attacks germs and potential infections to keep us healthy. 

A healthy immune system can ward off invasive germs, viruses and parasites while protecting healthy cells and tissue. On the other hand, people with compromised or weakened immune systems can be at higher risk of infections. 

What Is CBD?

CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in hemp and cannabis plants, known as a cannabinoid. There are many cannabinoids in cannabis plants, with CBD being one of the most popular. It can be extracted and turned into a variety of different forms and products. Many people seek out CBD for its potentially therapeutic properties, including pain management, stress relief, sleep aid and more. 

Although there is more research needed to fully understand how CBD works with the body to deliver its possible benefits, it is thought to center on cannabidiol’s interaction with the ECS. 

What Is The Endocannabinoid System?

The ECS, also known as the endocannabinoid system, is a network of receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids that are responsible for regulating many bodily functions. The overall goal of the ECS is balance, or homeostasis. The endocannabinoid system is a cell signaling system that helps regulate things like our memories, emotional responses, sleep cycles, pain management, and more. 

Another of many vital functions the ECS is responsible for is immune and inflammatory responses. Because of this, CBD could be beneficial to the immune response promoted by the ECS when the two come in contact. 

CBD and Immune Response

CBD may be able to reduce inflammation by manipulating cell signaling with the ECS. The body and ECS use specific molecules to signal inflammatory responses, which is an immune response. CBD is thought to reduce inflammation by inhibiting the molecule responsible for signaling inflammation. 

This connection could be especially useful to those who may be immunocompromised or those suffering from an autoimmune disease. Some autoimmune diseases cause the immune system to attack healthy cells. Some common autoimmune diseases that could benefit from CBD’s possible anti-inflammatory properties are rheumatoid arthritis or lupus
