In particular, cannabidiol helps to eliminate or greatly alleviate such symptoms of the disease as:
The hormonal system (endocrin) consists of various glands that produce hormones such as thyroid, pituitary gland, pancreas, pineal glands, etc. Hormones produced by these glands are particularly strong chemical substances that significantly affect the body, because The endocrine system is an important adaptation mechanism to the changing conditions of the external and internal environment.
De Quervain’s disease – (subacute inflammation of the thyroid gland), although the etiology of the disease is not completely clear and known, its causes are sought in a viral infection. The most common symptoms of the de Quervain syndrome are:
CBD in the treatment of thyroid gland. Hyperthyroidism
To understand the impact of CBD on the endocrine system it is necessary to get acquainted with the basic knowledge compendium on hormones, the endocrine system and their interrelationship. Hormones are chemical messengers produced by the human body, responsible for the coordination and regulation of the most important processes taking place in the body, including:
Hypothyroidism – one of the most common diseases with hypothyroidism is:
CBD has strong anti-inflammatory properties, so it can be a reliable way to get rid of dangerous thyroid inflammation.
Due to its immunomodulatory properties and ingredients, CBD can bring positive reactions of the body not only in terms of alleviating the symptoms of thyroiditis, but also by acting directly on the destructive inflammatory process. Effective action of cannabidiol is confirmed in such autoimmune diseases as for example: multiple sclerosis or Crohn’s disease. To date, these assumptions have not been scientifically confirmed, but the whole allows us to look at the possible inhibition of thyroid cell destruction due to the positive properties and action of cannabidiol. Patients struggling with hypothyroidism also notice alleviation or even complete elimination of nagging headaches, muscles and joints. CBD allows restoring patients to a restful sleep, increase concentration, eliminating arduous tension and depression.
The thyroid is sensitive to nutrient deficiencies such as zinc, iodine, and selenium, as well as environmental pollutants which can cause it to over function (hyperthyroid), or under function (hypothyroid). In addition, the immune system can also begin attacking the thyroid gland, resulting in autoimmune thyroid conditions–Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Grave’s Disease.
In both cases of hyper and hypothyroidism, people are left with very few options for treatment, and many are interested in exploring alternative, more natural, and safe options.
What Causes Thyroid Conditions?
Certain nutrients are needed to make thyroid hormones, such as iodine, selenium, and zinc. A deficiency in any of these can impair proper thyroid hormone synthesis.
The symptoms of hyperthyroidism are all associated with the increase in metabolic rate that the excess thyroid hormones cause. Common symptoms include:
Currently, thyroid conditions are managed by replacing thyroid hormones or preventing thyroid hormone output. In both cases, the underlying issue which led to the condition is rarely addressed. People have begun to wonder about CBD for thyroid conditions, given its anti-inflammatory properties through the endocannabinoid system.
