What If CBD Helped – Crohn’s?
I should say that by no means is CBD oil a cure for Crohn’s. Some people think that changing your diet or exercising is all you need to manage Crohn’s. While changing your diet and exercising can reduce some inflammation, it can’t manage what a body with Crohn’s is actually doing, which is producing a surplus amount of TNF-alphas which lead to more inflammation in the body. Because Crohn’s is genetic and is thought to be an autoimmune disease, no amount of exercise, diet, or CBD oil will cure it. Used as a supplemental method, however, CBD oil helps manage what are some of the worst parts of having Crohn’s: the psychological burden/worry, abdominal pain, and overall anxiety. Study actually suggest that there may be benefits from CBD oil for both Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis patients beyond the moderation of symptoms. This could be huge for the future treatment of Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis.
