CBD and Gut Health
When your stomach is upset, you can’t think as clearly. It may increase feelings of anxiety, putting you into a state of panic. The connection between the stomach and the brain is why you need to make sure that you’re promoting the growth of good bacteria and eliminating harmful bacteria from your microbiome.
What is Gut Motility, and How Does CBD Help?
The Link Between the Stomach and Inflammation
CBD Supports a Healthy Microbiome
Scientists are still learning more about the link between our microbiomes and our general health but have noticed a link between an unbalanced microbiome and other health conditions. The link is even more profound when considering how the microbiome impacts our mental health. If our guts are imbalanced, our mental state suffers greatly.
There are things you can do to support your microbiome, such as eating yogurt, taking pre & probiotic supplements, and making sure that you’re getting a healthy amount of fiber. CBD can help restore your microbiome, and many people have found that it helps them manage their GI health and reduce symptoms associated with poor gut health.
Link Between CBD and Appetite
CBD doesn’t just help when you’re feeling nauseous. Many people notice that it can help reduce overeating. Keeping our appetites in check doesn’t just help us manage our weight. When we overeat, we feel bloated due to the buildup of gas in our GI tract that stretches our intestines and impacts our motility. CBD can make you feel satisfied faster when eating so that you don’t overindulge.
Some people are stress eaters, which means that their mental health negatively affects their appetite. When they feel anxious or depressed, they may also feel hungry. This can create a cycle where overeating leads to digestive issues, worsening the person’s mental wellbeing. Using CBD to promote better mental health can also have an impact on your gut health by proxy.
How to Use CBD to Promote Better Gut Health
It’s important to remember that many factors can affect how you react to CBD products. The type of product you use, how long you’ve been using CBD, and how your body tolerates it all determine what an effective serving size is for you. The best way to start is through small steps ( More is not better).
- Start slow and monitor how you react to it. If you’ve never used CBD oil before, you may notice a change right away.
- If you feel the need for it, you can have a serving in the morning and the evening.
- As you adjust, you can increase your serving size as you feel fit.
