CBD oil and IBS

Postby gmc1345 » Sun Jul 08, 2018 9:20 pm

Has anyone had experience with CBD oil and its effect on IBS?
I particularly suffer from excess unpassable gas and fragmented stools which gets worse with social activities - like even when I am enjoying what I'm doing outside in my head I know the next day is going to be a healing process -just-massage and go walking until you pass all the stools stored from this occasion...
I got some CBD oil today and I am curious if there are certain ways consuming it may help [better]..

Sorry no one has responded yet. I don't really have an answer, butt I would say give it a try. Don't see where it would hurt and it just might help.

Good luck and let us know.

My daughter suffers from IBS and is also going to try CBD. I will let you know her experience when I hear from her and I look forward to hearing how CBD works for you. I hope you will report your experience back here. I hope it's helpful!

Just a warning, diarrhea is a common side effect as the oil "lubricates" your intestines so don't be surprised if this happens.

@zephyr that happens even with quality products. They are suspended in oil so that is a highly possible side effect at first. The mmj nurse warned about this in the education group at my pain clinic. I'm in Canada so prescription and purchase through a licensed producer is required at this moment so quality is not an issue at all. There are other possible side effects but this and dry mouth are very common.

I take it multiple times a day for the cancer. I will say I suffer pretty bad constipation from the colon issues and pain meds. It has really helped me with that. It helps with pain and muscle soreness. I would definitely try it, it has no real side effects and its natural. Make sure you find a good medical grade, a lot of it is not great out there.
