Using CBD To Relieve Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome refers to a gastrointestinal disorder that causes bloating, stomach cramps, constipation and/or diarrhea. The symptoms of this disorder vary among individuals and it affects some people severely. Basically, the effects of IBS are intermittent and they can last for days or even months. In some people, the symptoms are felt more after eating some meals or while stressed. IBS is common among women and it commonly occurs at the age of 20 to 30 years. Nevertheless, studies have shown that cannabinoids can be used to mitigate IBS symptoms with a possibility of addressing its cause.

 

CBD for irritable bowel syndrome

Scientists are proving that cannabinoids play a significant neuromodulatory role in the gastrointestinal system by activating the cannabinoid receptors. This leads to the inhibition of the secretion of gastrointestinal fluid and inflammation. Additionally, scientists argue that CBD has analgesic and antiemetic effects. All these suggest that CBD can be used to relieve IBS.

Studies have also revealed that CBD can be used to block spinal, gastrointestinal and peripheral mechanisms. These promote the pain that is experienced by IBS patients. Laboratory research on mice has shown that cannabinoids can be used to reduce gastroesophageal reflux that results from this condition.

CBD is also a powerful non-psychoactive cannabinoid that works as an anti-spasmodic that produces calming effects too. According to experts, when CBD is used to relieve IBS, its medical efficacy increases dramatically.

 

How it works

CBD works by interacting with cannabinoid receptors within the digestive tract. This interaction relieves spasms and pain leading to improved mobility. Studies have shown that cannabidiol has been used to relieve gastrointestinal distress for years in both eastern and western medicine. Currently, several clinical studies on CBD effectiveness in treating IBS are being conducted. Nevertheless, preliminary research has shown that CBD plays a role in treating IBS. However, a majority of these studies have focused on aspects like appetite stimulation and nausea suppression.

IBS patients have also reported that CBD products have helped in easing cramping and moderating constipation and diarrhea. These are the commonest symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

 

Using CBD as a treatment for irritable bowel syndrome

Basically, there are self-documentary evidence and preliminary investigations that point to the efficacy of CBD as a treatment for irritable bowel syndrome. However, it’s important to talk to your doctor before you use CBD to relieve irritable bowel syndrome.
