Inflammation is the process by which your body protects you from infection but unregulated becomes a disease. Symptoms include redness, swelling, pain, and stiffness. Chronic inflammation has been linked to diseases like heart disease or stroke, and may also lead to autoimmune disorders.
Fungi have astonishing therapeutic properties. Several species of medicinal mushrooms strengthen immunity and promote neurogenesis, the growth of new brain cells, through molecular pathways regulated by the endocannabinoid system.
Could cannabidiol be a breakthrough therapy to replace or lessen the use of steroids?
This anti-itch cream leverages CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties for topical relief.
Project CBD speaks with Dr. Rachel Knox about "endocannabinology," THC/CBD synergies, and whole food nutrition.
What would you do if you were faced with the intractable symptoms of CFS? One woman's life-changing experience with cannabis.
Coca-Cola is eyeing CBD as a functional food additive, while the beverage giant promotes sugary drinks for overweight children.
Clinical trials are underway to treat a rare autoimmune disease by targeting the endocannabinoid system.
