But, I thought this site was about back relief?! ..NO! we are here to educate about all forms of chronic pains and illnesses which CBD ‘may’ have the ability to relieve some symptoms off!
Crohns disease seems to be on the up and up. A lot more people are suffering with it, notably a picture posted by magician dynamo fully swollen and bloated bares testament to how bad it can be for those who suffer from it. Crohns disease causes internal inflammation anywhere between the mouth and anus.
This can cause bouts of swelling, constant diarrhoea, bleeding, constipation, pain and cramps in the abdomen, feeling an urgent need to go to the bathroom, and a sensation that the bowels have not emptied properly.
Certainly not pleasant, I’m sure for anyone who suffers from it!
Ok, so how can CBD help relieve these symptoms?
Well, surprisingly, not by reducing inflammation according to a recent study led by Dr. Timna Naftali who presented her findings at the united European gastroenterology annual meeting 2018, Vieena, Austria.
We know that CBD and cannabinoids have an anti inflammatory effect on the body, but in relation to Crohns disease the cannabis oil works via relieving symptoms in other ways, and her and her team are now studying this further.
According to the study, 46 people whose Crohns disease was moderately severe were randomly assigned to two groups that received an 8 week treatment.
One group received a treatment of CBD oil the other group a placebo.
After the treatment, there was a significant reduction in Crohns disease symptoms in the cannabis oil group compared to the placebo group.
The results showed that 65 percent of the cannabis oil group met ‘strict criteria for clinical remission’ of Crohns disease. compared with 35 percent of the placebo group.
The group that received the cannabis oil also showed meaningful improvements in measures of life and quality of life, compared with the group that received the placebo.
What does that mean for us?
Well, with restrictions now being lifted more and more, we find that new studies are being performed and recorded all the time. Fingers crossed this means in the near future relief from the symptoms of Crohns disease will be reduced with the addition of CBD oil or other forms of CBD.
In the mean time, if you do try CBD oil for your Crohns or currently use it, let us know in the comments!
