Crohns/Colitis and CBD | Crohns and Colitis UK

AD | Hello my lovelies! I've been taking CBD to treat my ulcerative colitis now for nearly two years and I cannot recommend it enough, I wanted to share with you all why I think you should start taking CBD if you're a sufferer...

| What is Crohns/Colitis? | Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic illnesses caused by inflammation that affects the lining of the digestive tract.

| Why CBD for inflammation? | CBD oil elevates an endocannabinoid called 2-AG which binds to the CB2 receptor. This interaction helps to regulate your immune system, helping to reduce inflammation.

| Does CBD help pain? | CBD oil elevates an endocannabinoid called anandamide which binds the CB1 receptor. This interaction helps regulate your neurological functions including your sensitivity to pain.

| Can CBD help depression? | Many people with Crohn's, colitis and many other chronic illnesses can develop depression. CBD oil has shown in studies to elevate chemicals that are usually lacking in a depressed brain.

| How to take CBD for Crohns/Colitis? | You may find that the best way to take CBD is by eating CBD infused foods or taking CBD hemp oil pills because they absorb into the walls of your digestive system.

What are your thoughts? Do you take CBD? Let me know by sending me a tweet or getting in touch on Instagram.

With love, Alisha Valerie. x
