The expression “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” remains as relevant now as it was years ago. Health-conscious consumers have always been interested in taking control of their own care by taking proactive steps to enhance and support their immune systems.
The increased popularity of hemp-derived compounds for symptom relief has spurred clinical research and generated a body of data that supports the efficacy of hemp compounds as a viable alternative or enhancement to existing medications for certain conditions.
The human body has an endocannabinoid system of transmitters and receptors that help regulate certain functions such as hunger, stress, sleep, and immune response. The body produces its own endocannabinoids, however, CBD (cannabidiol), a non-psychoactive compound of more than a hundred found in the hemp plant, binds to those receptors that govern the system.
There are auto-immune conditions where the body’s own immune response becomes hyperactive and can produce an effect of the body attacking itself. While CBD has not been proven to be effective in a broad sense against infection or disease, it has been shown to be effective in relieving symptoms resulting from inflammation caused by certain conditions.
Studies show that CBD is effective in the regulation of cytokines. These proteins are produced by the body and play a role in white blood cell production, inflammation, and immunity.
In animal studies, CBD compounds, such as those in CBD Immunity Gummies have been found to support the function of naturally-occurring T cells that are essential in the immune response system.
One of the most important drivers and regulators of immune health is the human digestive system. A healthy gut biome supports the regulatory balance of bacteria in the GI tract. Inflammation in the bowel can have negative effects on this regulatory system and lower immunity. Products such as cbdMD immune boost gummies can help reduce the inflammation produced by imbalance and contribute to overall immune response.
There is a proven link between stress and overall health. Anxiety disorders such as PTSD and prolonged stress exposure can lead to responses such as lack of sleep, lack of appetite, depression, and general irritability.
Studies have shown that CBD has been used safely to treat symptoms of PTSD such as insomnia and nightmares in both children and adults. Unlike naturally occurring endocannabinoids produced by the body, CBD such as is found in Ananda Professional CBD Fruit Chews directly impacts an important serotonin receptor and enhances blood flow to certain areas of the brain.
In a study among men who were asked to replicate a public speaking event, a dose of 300 mg of CBD was found to produce a reduction of anxiety better than a placebo, a lower dose, and surprisingly, even a higher dosage.

Commercial cannabis compounds may, by law, contain no more than 0.3 % of THC. While this is not enough THC to create a psychoactive effect, it may still be detectable in some tests. If you are prohibited from using any product containing THC or any hemp-derived products, CBD treatments may not be an option.
