CBD & The Digestive System

Gut Health, Digestion & CBD

CBD has been known to deliver a variety of benefits to aiding and optimizing the natural progression of our digestive system. The digestive systems is a group of organs working together to convert food into energy and essential nutrients for the body. There are six significant functions which take place in the process of digestion; ingestion, secretion, mixing and movement, metabolism, absorption, and excretion.

The first way CBD can benefit the digestive system is by stimulating appetite encouraging the body to seek more sources of energy to function more efficiently actively. CBD also delivers profound benefits to any forms of gastrointestinal distress; this includes but is not limited to visceral pain which is caused by lack of blood flow to the organs.

By interacting with the natural receptors in the digestive system, CBD can deter stomach acid secretion, chronic inflammation and internal bleeding which causes nausea and vomiting. CBD also is capable of delivering regularity to the digestive cycle preventing other gastrointestinal conditions like diarrhea or constipation.

CBD has been proven to be a solution for a variety of other digestive issues such as Crohn’s disease, cachexia, and anorexia. Crohn’s disease is the result of ulcers or lacerations within the stomach and small intestines. Cachexia and anorexia are conditions where the patient is suffering from a loss of weight, muscle atrophy, weakness and fatigue due to a decline in appetite.

CBD thankfully offers a solution to these conditions by directly impacting the responsiveness of receptors in the brain and stomach which governs the process of digestion from ingestion to excretion. Few recognize the connection between the brain and the stomach, but these vital organs are closely linked as the brain uses more energy than any other part of the body.

Those that have been polled to be suffering from any of the aforementioned digestive issues have be reported to have an increased appetite, decreased nausea, better pain management, and overall better mood as a result of consuming CBD.

The digestive system is a very complicated and intricate system and set of organs and must be regulated with care if one wishes to benefit from the results of an optimized highly functioning body.
