Can CBD Help Heal Wounds?

You may have accidentally cut yourself while preparing for dinner or you may have fallen down during your daily morning jog or you bumped your knees into a filing cabinet at work accidentally. Small wounds may heal themselves without much effort while bigger wounds may need more care. Wounds, though it may be uncomfortable and oftentimes painful, but nevertheless it is still a part of our life.

When you have a wound your body will start a complex healing process which starts with your blood vessels constricting itself to minimize bleeding followed by the process of platelets which forms a clot to seal the wound. Next, inflammation starts and the immune system will rid debris and fight against any infection. Collagens produce new tissues and the wound will turn into a new skin and restore the damaged area and while limiting scarring.

The question is can natural health supplements extracted from hemp and cannabis plants like Cannabidiol or CBD help to heal wounds? Let's explore this matter.

Conventional medications are typically prescribed to patients or which can be easily bought over-the-counter like pain medications may take care of the pain, but they do not fix the root causes. These conventional medications do come with some setbacks like: abusing painkillers may damage your liver, cause dependence, the effects of medication may decrease if used too often, it can cause lethargy and contain other undesired side effects.

What about CBD? CBD is believed to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which can aid in the healing of wounds. CBD is known for its ability to help fight inflammation. By interacting with the Endocannabinoid System it can assist the immune system to promote cell repair and lower oxidative stress.

Researchers have pointed out that CBD has the potential to decrease the proteins and chemicals that are involved in inflammatory reactions. Meaning CBD can help control the inflammatory process and send signals to control the immune system from having hypersensitive reactions to the inflammation. CBD can help block unnecessary inflammation from causing harm to wounds.

In a study in 2018, showed that CBD can help reduce inflammation in the early stages of wound healing. Healthy amount of inflammation is needed to help fight off bacteria, diseases and foreign objects.

Researchers have also found that when CBD is in your body it can help heal the wound and at the same time prevent inflammation from causing harm to the bones.

CBD or Cannabidiol is primarily derived from the hemp plant for its high content of CBD. CBD is one of 100s known compounds found in the cannabis plant. We call these compounds, Cannabinoids. Examples of cannabinoids would include THC, CBG, CBN, CBC, CBDa or THCa. Both CBD and THC are two of the most well known and researched cannabinoids. It contains plenty of benefits for our health. Both are highly capable of promoting sleep, treating insomnia, managing cancer treatment symptoms, relieving pain and inflammation, reducing stress and anxiety or managing seizures symptoms. The biggest difference between CBD and THC is: THC has psychoactive effects which means using THC in a high amount can alter your state of mind, slow you down and cause you to feel “high" while CBD on the other hand does not alter your state of mind and does not intoxicate you. However, CBD comes with minor side effects that could affect some people like nausea, dry mouth, drowsiness or changes in appetite. These symptoms tend to go away on their own once your body gets used to CBD. Also, if you are taking medications do note that CBD could interact with some medications therefore, do discuss with your doctor if you are planning to use CBD products.
