The liver is an internal organ in the human body which holds more than 10% of your total blood supply and has more than 500 different functions necessary for life. The three main functions are cleaning your blood, producing a digestive liquid (bile) and storing energy. To keep your liver healthy you should have a balanced diet, keep a moderate alcohol consumption, exercise regularly and maintain a healthy weight.

Chronic liver disease is a major public health problem affecting hundreds of millions of people around the world. There are some main things to cause liver failure – obesity, excessive alcohol consumption and hepatitis and so far, research shows that CBD is not one of these.

What causes liver diseases?

  • Parasite and viral infection
  • Immune system dysfunction
  • Genetics
  • Chronic alcohol abuse
  • Drug abuse
  • Toxic heavy metals
  • Too much of fat in the liver
  • Some edications
  • Some herbal preparations

Effective treatment strategies for fibrotic conditions should aim to boost CB2 signaling, while tuning CB1 in the other direction. That’s what CBD does and helps to keep your liver healthy.

Studies also indicate that endocannabinoids and CB2 receptor activation have a protective role in reducing inflammatory responses linked to chronic liver diseases, including fatty liver disease, viral hepatitis and alcohol-related liver disease and dysfunctions.
