What If CBD Helped – Nausea or Vomiting?
Nausea and vomiting are protective defense mechanisms in the human body, and short-term episodes can be therapeutic, though miserable. But what if nausea is not short-term? What if it is an unavoidable side effect, or chronic, with no relief in sight? Nausea and vomiting are different problems – related, but different when it comes to cause and treatment. Those effected by nausea know it’s worse than vomiting because it is a continuous sensation, and is harder to control.
Studies have shown that CBD oil may help eliminate or reduce vomiting and nausea by interacting with serotonin releasing receptors. CBD oil may be effective in easing anxiety, which may help patients manage the trigger of chronic nausea. If there’s no clear trigger for nausea, you should work with your doctor to discover the underlying problem. This is true especially if the nausea does not resolve within a day or two because that may be a sign of more serious problems.
