Inflammatory Bowel Disease

CBD Can Be Used As A Natural Anti-Inflammatory to Treat Inflammatory Bowel Disease


Inflammatory bowel disease , or IBD, is a condition that affects around 1.5 million Americans. Similar to Crohn’s disease, it causes excessive inflammatory responses in the gastrointestinal tract, often resulting in damage and disturbances in motility and secretion.  Currently, there are no cures for IBD and treatments work to help reduce the symptoms common with the condition. CBD is proven in many scientific studies to reduce inflammation all over the body. Because CBD is introduced into the endocannabinoidal system, it helps with inflammatory issues throughout the entirety of the body by opening up the CB2 receptors.
