CAN CBD HELP US WITH ACID REFLUX

CAN CBD HELP US WITH ACID REFLUX

Can CBD help us with acid reflux?

One of the most sensitive and complex human organ systems is the gastrointestinal system.
Acid reflux is the backward movement of the stomach acid in your stomach area to your throat through the esophagus (the tube that connects the two). This backwash often irritates the lining of the esophagus.
It prompts discomfort around the upper abdomen, which sometimes causes a painful, burning sensation in the chest (as if having a heart attack) known as heartburn.
Common symptoms aside from heartburn are nausea, vomiting, or difficulty in swallowing. Acid reflux can also cause hoarseness of the voice, sore throat, and it leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

Why?
There are many causes of acid reflux. However, it most commonly arises when the muscles that control the tube between the stomach and esophagus do not entirely close, allowing acids and food in the stomach flow back. And this could cause tissue injury around that area.

GER or GERD?
Medically, acid reflux is called gastroesophageal reflux (GER). If this progresses to a more severe form and produces chronic symptoms, then this is known as Gastroesophageal reflux disease or commonly known as GERD.

How does CBD work?
CBD works by interacting with the body’s ECS and its particular cannabinoid receptors (CBRs)(8), including  its role in the gastric functions.
Studies have shown that CBRs have demonstrated their effect on gastrointestinal motility, inflammation and immunity, intestinal and gastric acid secretion, nociception and emesis pathways, and appetite control. Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD also modulates the movement and volatility of intestinal propulsions.

There is no known standard of dosage in the use of CBD to treat acid reflux. Like any other use of medicines and supplementations, taking CBD varies according to age, weight, and genetics. Generally, it is six milligrams of CBD per body weight.
CBD may show a promising position to help address acid reflux, however, one should not use it without seeking the advice of a doctor expert on cannabis.
