THC's anti-inflammatory properties

THC and CBD are potent anti-inflammatories. When ingested, they deactivate a hyperactive immune system. THC can calm the pro-inflammation signals, while CBD can bind to and activate the CB2 receptor, found in the tissues and responsible for inhibiting inflammation. In modulating the production of cytokines, pro-inflammatory are not sent to the GI tract, thereby reducing inflammation.
