Today, we will be exploring what Cannabidiol or CBD can help with treatment of Crohn's Disease. A disclaimer: even though CBD may not be able to treat or cure Crohn's Disease, it can help treat symptoms from the disease bringing relief and calmness to your body. We at Mellow Organic are not medical experts and this is by no means a medical advice. Should you be wanting to incorporate CBD into your daily health routines or to help treat specific symptoms then we advise you to discuss it with your doctor first.
What is Crohn's Disease?
Crohn's Disease is a type of chronic Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
The disease causes swelling and inflammation of the tissues.
It can affect any part from the digestive tract from the mouth to anus.
Crohn's frequently causes symptoms like diarrhea, abdominal pain, weight loss and fatigueness.
We don't know yet what causes Crohn's Disease but believe it could be related to genetics, immune system and environmental factors.
Inflammation caused by the disease can affect many different areas, but mostly in the small intestine and can spread to deeper levels of the bowels.
Crohn's can be very painful and in the worst case life threatening.
Symptoms of Crohn's Disease often include fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea, fatigue, stomach cramps, blood in stool, mouth sores, weight loss, loss of appetite and pain sensation around anus area due to inflammation in the digestive tract.
Traditional treatment for Crohn's Disease includes medication, lifestyle changes or even surgery. But what if you want to add CBD products like CBD oil into the mix. What could CBD do for Crohn's Disease? Here's what researchers believe CBD can do for Crohn's Disease or IBD:
CBD can help reduce inflammation in the digestive tract area. This helps to reduce symptoms of IBD or any other digestive disorder.
CBD can help stimulate the production of serotonin in the digestive area to help boost digestion.
CBD has antiviral and antibacterial properties to help fight off harmful bacteria in your digestive system.
CBD can lessen pain from stomach cramps and other contractions.
CBD will lessen the feeling of nausea and vomiting.
CBD helps you to feel calm and sleep better.
There are many forms of CBD products out there. Vaping CBD oil is great for sudden IBD flare as vaping CBD oil may help your body to absorb CBD faster and is great for an instant effect, but the effects run out sooner than dropping CBD oil sublingually. When you drop CBD oil under your tongue it allows the CBD to be absorbed by blood vessels which are then transported to your bloodstream. The effects of CBD last the longest and makes it the most effective method of using CBD.
It's also good to know that there are three types of CBD to choose from:
CBD Isolate: is pure CBD and doesn't contain any other components from the cannabis plant. CBD Isolate is great for people that are looking for just CBD and no THC like Mellow CBD Oil with 900mg CBD and comes in 30ml bottles with two flavor options: Natural and Orange.
Broad Spectrum: Contains all the components from the cannabis plant, but is THC free.
Full Spectrum: contains all the components from the cannabis plant like CBD, THC, CBN, CBG, CBN, CBDa, THCa, terpenes and flavonoids. Full Spectrum CBD may only contain 0.3% THC. In the US CBD may contain up to 0.3% while in Thailand only 0.2% THC is allowed. Researchers have found that Full Spectrum CBD oil can help to improve quality of life and is the most effective among the three types of CBD in easing pain from Crohn's Disease. Try Mellow Full Spectrum CBD Oil with 1,800mg CBD and available in 30ml bottles.
Remember to always start with a low dosage and increase the amount of CBD if needed. Be patient with CBD. By using it regularly you will notice improvements in your body. Most important of all, consult with your doctor if you are planning on using CBD to help with the treatment of Crohn's Disease or any other digestive disorder.
