“Cannabinoids have similarly demonstrated the ability to block spinal, peripheral and gastrointestinal mechanisms that promote pain in headache, fibromyalgia, IBS and related disorders.”
Research suggests that both scientists and patients have found benefits for IBS with CBD due to its anti-inflammatory action, pain relief, stimulation of the ECS, and its impact on gut microbiota. It is specifically helpful for people suffering from Gastrointestinal Disorders like IBS, SIBO, CD and IBD. While the science and feedback is promising, everyone’s body reacts differently and you may not experience the same effects as other users. However, if IBS symptoms are impacting your quality of life, then it is worth trying a natural treatment that is backed by science, such as CBD, CBG or Beta Caryophyllene.
CBD RESEARCH FOR IBS
This is the purest form of CBD with all other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and residual plant matter removed completely. The isolate is often derived directly from the hemp plant and contains no detectable THC.
Most doctors recommend dietary changes such as an elimination diet, lifestyle changes, probiotics and fiber supplements as a first trial to improve symptoms. These changes address the symptoms of IBS but may not address the root cause. You can also try an OTC test kit for harmful bacteria or parasites in your digestive tract. These are not uncommon in the era of factory farming.
Anandamide is called our “bliss” molecule and named after Anand, the goddess of bliss.
We mentioned c Diff up above since a study on CBD looked directly at this very dangerous bactieria.
CBD helped the gut to recover from our immune system’s overactive response (cytokines).
They gave this synthetic CBD to mice genetically bred to be obese who had gut barriers issues and high levels of bacteria in their blood.
The immune system detects stray bacteria and with an inflammatory response (very important), locks them away into the arteries.
C. difficile produces two toxins, TcdA and TcdB, which damage intestinal cells and cause inflammation in the gut.
This goes to the damage of c Diff. We still have to eliminated it.
