According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of people diagnosed with asthma is increasing every year. Nearly 60% of children with asthma have an attack in any given year, while 51% of adults do as well. Almost 3,500 American’s die of asthma attacks every year.
Here at That’s Natural, we believe there are more natural ways to potentially help these people than the standard procedure of steroids or Albuterol. A study in 2012 helps defend this premise in a couple of different ways. The goal of the study was to offer more information on how cannabinoids impact inflammation, with a specific focus on immune/allergic reactions.
One way which was found, showed that CB2 receptors on mast cells directly impacted the inflammatory effects. The second way that cannabinoids impacted the allergic/asthmatic reaction showed the activation of CB1 receptors on bronchial nerve endings which helped dilate the airway smooth muscle. Because of these findings, cannabinoids may be beneficial in airway hyper-reactivity and asthma. If this is true, CB1 has the same physiological impact that Albuterol has, by Broncho dilating the airways.
The study concluded that:
“The presence of endocannabinoid machinery in the central nervous system, together with high levels of CB1 expression, suggests that the endocannabinoid system is an important modulator of neuroinflammation and a possible drug target. In selected conditions, the activation of CB1 receptors in cerebral blood vessels can have beneficial antiischemic effects. However, as endocannabinoids can also bind to vanilloid receptors, they may also mediate neurotoxic effects.”
Here at That’s Natural, our cannabidiol (CBD) rich oil is a full spectrum oil. This means that it contains not just CBD but other helpful cannabinoids and terpenes.
