CBD-oil doesn’t have side effects

Like you may know, there are a couple of common stomach and bowel disorders. Crohn’s disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) are the most well-known. If you have one of these diseases, you suffer from stomachache, a bloated feeling, diarrhoea or hard stools. Several researches and studies have shown that people who suffer from these disorders can benefit from medicinal hempseed oil like CBD oil. And the biggest advantage is that CBD doesn’t have side effects.

CBD activates receptors

We have already written a lot about the endocannabinoid system in our body. Basically, the cannabinoids in the CBD oil influence certain receptors in your body. As a result, the receptors aren’t able to move so fast in a spontanuous way, like they do when there are spasms or cramps in the intestines. In this way the CBD can calm down the intestines.
We do think it’s important to tell here that there are plenty of researches going on – in all areas – into the effects of CBD. This is why SupMedi does advice everyone to also consult their doctor. Source:
