For anyone trying CBD for the first time, edibles are not only a palatable alternative, but can potentially give your gut health a welcomed cannabinoid boost. For many, it's the anti-inflammatory effect they desire, a great way to achieve that is with our yummy treats! Eating CBD has a longer-lasting effect, making it a particular favourite for people with chronic health conditions, such as autoimmune or inflammatory bowel diseases.
The health of our digestive tract, otherwise known as the gut, is crucial to our overall well-being. Not only does it contain at least 70% of the body’s immune cells, but it is even considered our second brain due to the extensive network of neurons, chemicals and hormones constantly relaying messages about the state of our digestive system and warnings of microbial attacks. However, thanks to modern toxins such as stress, over-prescription of antibiotics, the side effects of medication, and an unhealthy diet, our guts are suffering more than ever before, with approximately 3 million adults in the US alone having some kind of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Another biological communication network very much involved in regulating our gut health is the endocannabinoid system, which in cases of IBD works overtime in order to reduce excess inflammation.
This is where CBD may come to the fore as, unlike THC, it reduces inflammation without any psychoactive effects, making it more tolerable and easier to take. Plus, unlike THC, products containing CBD are legal to buy throughout the world.
But how does CBD reduce inflammation? Spanish cannabinoid scientist Ekaitz Agirregoitia, an IBD sufferer himself, explains: “Cytokines (proteins active in cell signalling and the immune response) appear from T cells. TH-1 is proinflammatory and TH-2 is not proinflammatory. It is suggested that cannabinoids change TH-1 to TH-2, thus bringing about an anti-inflammatory effect. CBD can inhibit COX enzyme which is responsible for the inflammatory effect.”
Another possible reason for CBD’s anti-inflammatory action is that it activates the Vanilloid receptor (TRPV-1), known to mediate pain perception, inflammation and body temperature.
Either way, all we know is they taste great and they work....
