DOES CBD OIL HELP GASTRITIS & GASTRIC ULCERS?

What is Gastritis and Gastric Ulcers?

Gastritis is a stomach disease or condition characterized by swelling, inflammation, or wearing off of the internal stomach lining. The patches of the stomach where the stomach lining got damaged, are known as Gastric Ulcers. Gastritis can be both acute and chronic. In acute Gastritis, the condition goes away after some time but in chronic Gastritis, the condition not only persists but it happens again and again over time. The main and primary symptom of Gastritis is the swelling and inflammation in the stomach lining. Due to inflammation in the stomach lining, patients suffering from Gastritis can also feel pain and upset stomach condition as secondary symptoms. Other major symptoms of Gastritis include:

  • Indigestion
  • Heartburn
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Hiccups
  • Dark stools
  • Appetite loss

If the Gastritis is not treated in the early stages, the patient could develop some mental health symptoms also. When left untreated, Gastritis produces severe stomach complications such as Stomach cancer. The ordinary Gastritis can lead to erosive Gastritis in which the gastric lining of the patient wears off completely. Erosive Gastritis can lead to painful ulcers and erosions. It is very important to consult with your doctor because only the doctor can resolve these issues and help you in managing these situations.

CBD Oil for Gastritis and Gastric Ulcers:

CBD (Cannabidiol) Oil is the chemical extract of the hemp (cannabis) plant. It is completelynon-psychoactive and non-toxic. People are using CBD Oil for treating different physiological conditions such as joint pain and inflammation. Our today’s topic is about the use of CBD Oil for the treatment of Gastritis and Gastric Ulcers. Luckily, CBD Oil has the ability to help in the treatment of Gastritis and alleviating its symptoms. But, unfortunately, very little information is available about the medical use of CBD Oil for Gastritis. Still, some independent research studies have reported that CBD may help in alleviating the symptoms of Gastritis. In this article, we are going to guide about the mechanism through which CBD Oil helps in the treatment of Gastritis.

ü CBD Oil help in the treatment of Gastritis and Gastric Ulcers by interacting with the Endocannabinoid System:

Endocannabinoid System is an additional immune system present in the human body. It has the ability to use or create the cannabinoids. The Endocannabinoid system regulates the different everyday functions of the body such as pain reception by CNS, inflammation responses, memory, emotions, and sleep. The endocannabinoid system regulates all these functions by its receptors. Endocannabinoid system receptors are divided into two main categories, CB1 receptors, and CB2 receptors. When these receptors bind with cannabinoids, they produce signals to the connected tissues and nerves. The symptoms of Gastritis have a very strong relation with Endocannabinoid system receptors.

CBD Oil has a very unique interaction with the Endocannabinoid system among all other cannabinoids. All other cannabinoids try to inhibit the activity and efficiency of the Endocannabinoid system but CBD Oil enhances its ability to perform everyday body functions.

CBD Oil binds with CB2 receptors to enhance the tissue’s ability to retain Anandamide. Anandamide is a chemical responsible for pain reception and responses. CBD helps in controlling pain and inflammation by detaining Anandamide in tissues. You are possibly thinking that how can CBD Oil detain Anandamide in tissues? It actually blocks the working of FAAH fatty acids. FAAH fatty acids are responsible for the breakdown of Anandamide. After the blocking of FAAH fatty acids, your body can retain the Anandamide for a longer time and it will do its job for some more time than usual. The patient will start feeling relief from the pain caused by Gastritis in these situations.

CBD Oil has a fantastic ability to control nausea and vomiting caused by Gastritis. CBD Oil binds with CB1 receptors to relieve the feelings of nausea. It is some time happens that, patient starts feeling anxiety and depression due to Gastritis. CBD Oil is helpful in these conditions also. CBD Oil interacts with CB1 receptors of the Endocannabinoid system and increases the secretion of Serotonin. Serotonin is also known as a happy chemical. According to recent research studies, CBD oil can relieve stress, anxiety, and depression caused by Gastritis.

ü CBD Oil also helps in addressing some of the causes of Gastritis:

CBD Oil may deal with some of the causes of Gastritis. For example, if you are suffering from Gastritis caused by painkillers, CBD Oil can helpful for you due to its anti-nausea properties. It will reduce the frequencies of vomiting and automatically give some more time to the stomach to heal its lining. CBD Oil will relieve your pain and you will no longer feel the need for painkillers.

How to take CBD Oil for Gastritis and Gastric Ulcers?

You can take CBD Oil orally or topically. In the oral method you have to taste the CBD Oil while in the topical method, you just have to apply the CBD Oil outside the skin of the stomach. You can place 4-5 drops of CBD oil under your tongue and it will automatically be dissolved and enter your bloodstream.

Conclusion:

Gastritis is a stomach condition in which the stomach lining becomes swollen or inflamed. The severe Gastritis can lead to painful Gastric Ulcers. CBD Oil can help in the treatment of Gastritis and alleviate many of its symptoms by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system.
