How can CannaReleaf™ help-
Cannabis Sativa- also known as hemp, has been a part of the Indian Ayurvedic system of medicine for as far as history can record. Within this system of medicine, cannabis Sativa extract has shown efficacy in the management of arthritic pain. CannaReleaf™ has been developed using ingredients sourced with the highest quality parameters, such as hemp from the Himalayas and coconut from the south of India. Both of these ingredients have shown different mechanisms of action to tackle symptoms associated with arthritis pain. With CannaReleaf™ Arthritis Pain solution, we aim to bring both these natural wonders together to achieve synergistic actions to tackle arthritis pain.
Pain and inflammation occur when a joint becomes arthritic due to the immune system attack (rheumatoid arthritis), or degeneration occurs in parts of the joint(osteoarthritis). CBD- also known as Cannabidiol, present in the CannaReleaf™ range binds with specialised receptors in an individuals brain and immune system. One such receptor called the CB2 receptor plays an important role in the immune system by managing pain and inflammation.
Several CB2 receptors are expressed by the cells of the affected area. These receptors bind to certain chemicals produced by our body which help manage the pain. However, with age progression and the slowing down of the body’s repair mechanism, these chemicals are underproduced, which results in the manifestation of this disease.
CBD from Hemp mimics these endogenous compounds and binds with receptors to help manage the pain and reduce the inflammation of the tissues. Coconut oil is also a well-known lubricant for the skin and is high in its antioxidant content also called polyphenols. These polyphenols, when used on arthritic joints, will help reduce swelling and other inflammatory markers.
