Benefits of CBD for Gut Health
Benefits of CBD for Gut Health
Cannabidiol (CBD) has seen a significant increase in demand as more people strive to reap the numerous health benefits that this cannabinoid boasts. Its usefulness in promoting a normal inflammatory response has been well documented, and for centuries it has been chosen as a remedy for gut inflammation, specifically. As a result of research and testing, the connection between CBD and gut health has become more apparent and it may prove to be the solution that many are looking for.
What Does the Research Say?
Studies conducted over the past five years have indicated that there are three main areas of gut health that are potentially positively impacted by the use of CBD.
Management of IBD Symptoms
Those suffering from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis may be able to better manage their symptoms with the aid of CBD products as opposed to traditional medications that aren’t able to provide complete relief.
Reduction of Intestinal Hyperpermeability
In conjunction with palmitoylethanolamide (PEA), CBD may help to reduce pain caused by gut inflammation, reduce colon permeability, and prevent intestinal hyperpermeability (or, “leaky gut”).
Treatment of Colitis (With Other Cannabinoids)
Full spectrum CBD includes other cannabinoids that when used to relieve colitis have shown to decrease damage and symptoms caused by the disease. There is still more research needed, but the data seems promising at this stage.
How Does CBD Ease Symptoms?
Your body’s endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is comprised of neurotransmitters that bind to and react with cannabinoid receptors. When CBD binds with these receptors as well as serotonin receptors, it promotes healthy activity and may reduce pain associated with inflammation as well as conditions such as nausea or abdominal pain caused by IBD. As inflammation is the key symptom for those with IBD, the concept of CBD reducing this inflammation is well worth pursuing and more research is in the works.
How to Use CBD for IBD
There are a number of CBD products available to help manage IBD discomfort including CBD oil, capsules, topicals, edibles, and electronic vaping devices. The effectiveness is based on a number of different factors ranging from the potency of the CBD to the frequency of use. How you consume CBD also plays a role, with topicals and balms taking more time to absorb into your body than placing the oil under your tongue.
It’s important to remember that you don’t need to take any THC in order to achieve the positive health benefits that a full spectrum CBD offers. Many people wish to take CBD without the “high” or elevated feeling that THC can cause, and reputable vendors will have numerous products that contain less than 0.3% THC or THC free CBD oil for this purpose.
