Neuro-inflammatory conditions prevent the immune system from being active, and this leads to neurodegenerative disorders. This situation explains why numerous people with weak immune systems experience all kinds of diseases.

Interestingly, one of the primary functions of CBD in the body is to help it achieve neurogenesis in the brain. Neurogenesis reduces neuroinflammatory conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, lateral sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s disease.

The immune system fights infections in two ways: humoral immunity and cell-mediated immunity. To achieve optimum immunity and excellent health, the body needs the right balance of these two processes.

These two processes are enabled through endocannabinoid found in cannabis and other CBD products such as CBD oil. The result you get from cannabis against neuro-inflammatory disease is the optimal immune system that kicks off all infections. Cannabis affects cancer cells Another disease that ravages the body’s immune system is cancer. Cancer cells depreciate the body’s immunity by targeting the body’s bone marrow which is an essential aspect of your immune system.

Your bone marrow is needed to produce blood cells that have the ability to fight diseases. If the cancer cell spreads the tumor to the bone marrow, it will stop the body from building blood cells. This will cause the body’s immune system to experience a decline in its white blood cell production which is bad news for the immune system.

Cannabis plays a significant role in helping patients deal with symptoms such as vomiting, nausea, fatigue, etc all of which  further strengthens the body’s immune system. Cancer does a lot of damage to the human body, but cannabis can help to repair some of these defects and energize the patient. Cannabis fights HIV HIV is an example of a disease that completely shatters the immune system. People who are diagnosed with HIV are vulnerable to illnesses and infections because their immune system is weak. So they vomit, lose appetite, and experience weight loss as the virus ravages their body.

Studies show that cannabis alleviates some  of the symptoms and signs of HIV, as evidenced through HIV patients who got an increase in white blood cells. It should be noted that the reports also claim that  the patients felt stronger after consistently taking a cannabis based regimen which repels the symptoms they previously experienced.


White blood cells fight and wade off all foreign elements that seek to pull down the immune system. The white blood cells also protect your body from infections. Bottom line Cannabis is the natural elixir you need to boost your immune health.  Taking cannabis in the correct dose and under necessary supervision can transform the state of your immunity.

Your body needs a robust immune system to tackle opposing health challenges, which is why the importance of paying attention to boosting your immune system cannot be stressed enough.
