CBD helps with inflammation and pain and is therefore used for the treatment of chronic pain.
Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that is occurring more and more in our society. The number of new cases is rising steadily. Recurring symptoms, such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, and discomfort, make life difficult for those affected. The disease is episodic and affects segmental sections of the gastrointestinal tract, especially the lower small intestine and the upper colon. Usually, diseased intestinal sections are found right next to healthy ones. The causes of Crohn’s disease are not yet known, but an autoimmune disease is believed to be the cause. CB1 and CB2 receptors play a significant role in the gut and cannabinoid receptors interact with these. In this case, cannabinoids can be pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory and also have a positive effect on well-being.
While other medications failed, CBD oil was proven to help patients with Chron’s disease by reducing their pain and cramps.
Karen uses CBD oil to treat Crohn’s disease and related arthritis and joint pain. Even if it can not completely cure Crohn’s disease, she is now almost painless and describes her life as more worth living.
The pain and cramps caused by Crohn’s disease forced Dan to his knees several times. He tried to combat the pain with pills prescribed to him by his doctor, diet changes and Humira injection. However, nothing could help him. Only after a friend familiarized him with CBD-infused food, his pain and cramps diminished and became manageable.
