What is Antibiotic Resistance?

Antibiotic resistance is a health complication that occurs when antibiotic medications lose their potential to eliminate bacterial growth efficiently; the bacteria strains mutate or develop an immunity to the effects and become resilient against the antibiotics. The new, altered bacteria can then continue to grow and possibly transmit its resistance onto entirely different strains of pathogens.

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria typically result from excessive use of antimicrobials or frequent misuse or prescribed antibiotics - carefully adhering to the proper dosages and medication directions provided by pharmacists and hospitals can dramatically reduce the risk of tolerant bacteria.

Why use CBD for Antibiotic Resistance?

Through cross-resistant investigations with plant and microbial antibacterial properties, scientists can roughly describe the chemotypes for cannabinoid compounds with antibacterial characteristics; these chemical descriptions suggest CBD possessing the highest level of antibacterial quality than any other strain of cannabis sativa which indicates the possibility of realistic cannabinoid use for antimicrobial therapy.

In particular, a clinical observation utilizing CBD-infused topical creams showcased CBD delivering antibacterial effects to weaken the accumulation of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) on the epidermis.

Currently, researchers have found CBD to be effective against six other significantly invulnerable bacteria - some instances have demonstrated CBD being even more efficient than pharmaceutical drugs for antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Many specialists now believe that these antibacterial capabilities are the primary purpose of cannabis as provided by nature.
