Inflammation is the body’s way of protecting itself after injury and the symptoms include swelling and pain. Certain chronic pain conditions are caused when the immune system triggers an inflammatory response unnecessarily, causing damage to its own tissues. Anti-inflammatory drugs such as NSAIDs or steroids are commonly prescribed for inflammatory conditions. However, long term use of such drugs can have adverse effects. Studies have shown that CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, as well as suppressing inflammatory responses.
