    Different types of intestinal complaints

    Many people suffer from one or more digestive problems. Heartburn, constipation or diarrhea, everyone suffers from this from time to time. These symptoms are usually temporary and will go away on their own. However, there are also intestinal complaints that are chronic and pose a health risk. They also have a major impact on everyday life. These are, for example, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis. These disorders can cause such severe complaints that people are regularly unable to go to work or that it disrupts their social life.


    Crohn's Disease

    In Crohn's disease, you suffer from inflammation of the digestive system. It is an autoimmune disease, but it is not yet known exactly what causes it. Complaints include vomiting, a tender abdomen, severe abdominal pain, abscesses and fever.


    Irritable Bowel Syndrome

    IBS is also a not yet well understood condition, which disrupts the functioning of the large intestine. You may have constipation or diarrhea. However, there are also people who suffer from both. What makes IBS difficult to deal with is the fact that you often can't predict when to go to the bathroom. You may also suffer from painful intestinal cramps, flatulence and/or bloating.


    Ulcerative Colitis

    Ulcerative colitis is a serious condition. The inflammations mainly occur in the large intestine and rectum, and ulcers can form in the intestine. An additional complaint of Ulcerative Colitis is that it can be difficult to hold stools.

    In many intestinal complaints, it is still unclear what the cause is. This makes intestinal complaints difficult to treat. Some of the possible causes are:

    • Stress
    • A change in diet
    • Smoking
    • Hormones
    • Medication
    • Lack of exercise


    Because of its anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect, CBD oil may help with intestinal complaints.

    The benefits of CBD oil for intestinal complaints

    Many people are already familiar with the power of CBD: it can have a calming effect, which is why it is often used for anxiety, restlessness and sleeping problems. But CBD also has anti-inflammatory properties. This allows it to inhibit the production of inflammatory proteins (cytokines and interleukin), as shown by research. These proteins are involved in causing inflammatory reactions in the body.


    The soothing properties of CBD can also have benefits for intestinal complaints. When you are under stress, your body produces more cortisol. High levels of this stress hormone have a negative effect on the gut by causing blood to be drawn away from the digestive tract to the muscles and brain. When you take CBD, it ensures more peace in your body and mind. This can lower the levels of cortisol and other stress hormones.


    What does research show?

    The growing popularity of CBD oil has led to more research being done into the positive effects of this substance on the gut. The first results seem to indicate that you could benefit a lot from using CBD oil for intestinal complaints.


    From a review  of several studies from 2016, it appears that CBD can possibly be used to treat the symptoms of IBS and Colitis to reduce ulcers. Cannabinoids can directly activate the CB1 receptors, which reduces gastric acid secretion and calms the stomach. Also, taking cannabinoids can help prevent lesions of the gastric mucosa caused by alcohol or NSAIDs.reduce.


    In 2020 a research was published investigating the effects of CBD and other non-mind-altering cannabinoids, on various disorders of the digestive system. So they looked at the effect of CBD, CBN and CBG, among others. The research shows that CBD is the most effective for multiple intestinal complaints. The researchers believe it won't be long before CBD and other phytocannabinoids will be seen as standard dietary supplements that can be used to help keep our gut healthy.
