Intestinal Disorders and Cannabidiol (CBD)

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Cannabidiol may dramatically improve digestive dysfunction and disease.

There are many factors that contribute to inflammatory bowel disease including foods, stress, sleep, and toxins. No matter the cause, the major cause of dysfunction and disease in the digestive tract is inflammation. Cancer, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, leaky gut, and diverticulosis are all examples of gut ailments that are a result of inflammatory bowel disease. It has been shown that cannabidiol can help to eliminate intestinal disorders and dis-ease.

How Does CBD Help Eliminate Intestinal Disorders?

Cannabidiol (CBD) helps to control the inflammation process throughout the body and is particularly effective in the gut. Often, bleeding, cramping, diarrhea, and bloating improve and even resolve with low doses of CBD treatment within a week. These are the effects of low dose CBD on the gut:

  • Modulates the immune system
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Relaxes the vasculature of the gut and increases blood flow
  • Reduces pain sensitivity 
  • Relaxes smooth muscle and eliminates cramping
  • Restores the tight junctions in the gut eliminating leaky gut issues
  • Modulates of the micro biome, balancing gut flora

CBD oil sourced from industrial hemp is legal across the United States  and in other countries when sold as a supplement. During my 2017 travels to Iceland and the Netherlands, the CBD in my baggage was never an issue at customs or security. However, carrying a product description from the manufacturer stating that the product does not contain THC could prove to be valuable information if questioned while traveling.

Hemp Oil Can Be Found In Everyday Products

Hemp oil is now available in foods, drinks, lotions, cleansing products, snacks, and even pet products. Elixinol products are organically grown, essentially free of THC (lower than .03% THC), petroleum free (hemp oil is CO2 extracted), checked by an independent third part lab, and contain whole plant extracts. We exclusively carry Elixinol CBD products at our center, insisting on only the best quality CBD for our clients! Please feel free to contact us with questions regarding CBD products we carry.
