The article is about Toni, who has had good experience using CBD for the treatment and treatment of IBD and Crohn’s disease. Toni is a former competitive orienteer and SM-level athlete who has had Crohn’s disease for 19 years. He developed a disease in his teens, which eventually made the life of a top athlete impossible. Toni also had several week-long hospital stays due to the disease in adolescence.
With age, the disease has leveled off, but sometimes there are active phases of the disease, for which Toni seeks help and relief from CBD products. Life changes and stress may trigger the active phase of the disease.
With Crohn’s disease, from time to time there are problems with the absorption of nutrients and in an active state the appetite is lost. Intestinal disease has a strong effect on mood in the form of sleeping and eating problems.
As an adult, Toni became familiar with studies on the effects of cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabidiol acid (CBD-A) in intestinal diseases and absorption problems. After hearing about the benefits and effects, Toni wanted to try the effects of CBD-A on Crohn’s disease. Toni says that for him the biggest problem with the disease is the loss of appetite, which CBD has helped with especially well in his case.
CBD capsules help with stress, sleep and appetite, especially when the disease is activated
Inflammatory bowel diseases IBD and Crohn’s disease
The abbreviation IBD, which comes from the words Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, is commonly used for inflammatory bowel diseases. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are long-term inflammatory bowel diseases.
Inflammatory bowel diseases are becoming more common. The cause of IBD and Crohn’s is not yet known, but susceptibility to the disease has been linked to a few genes and it is suspected that some environmental factors are also related to the onset of the disease, as IBD is more common in Western countries than in developing countries. For this reason, reasons have been sought, e.g. diet, the use of antibiotics and the overly clinical environment, i.e. the lack of natural microbes. (1 )
Experiences and benefits of CBD and effects on Crohn’s disease
With Crohn’s disease there are absorption problems from time to time and in an active state the appetite is lost. CBD capsules have helped Toni balance his appetite from morning.
In addition to appetite, CBD helps with stress and insomnia . With active Crohn’s disease, Toni says that CBD capsules help especially with appetite and nutrient absorption problems. In addition, Toni says that CBD removes malaise and pain.
In the active stage of Crohn’s disease, the body rejects food and does not absorb it. It’s a big burden on the body to pass food through without absorbing nutrients. With the regular use of CBD, Toni has found help with these problems.
Dosage for CBD use in Crohn’s disease
Toni’s use is of a curative nature and she says that she takes 2-3 monthly courses of CBD capsules at least 1-2 times a year.
Toni especially likes CBD capsules because of their ease of use. You can open the capsule and mix the contents into a drink or food, or if necessary, swallow it as is.
I believe that CBD is well suited to support an active life. As someone who does endurance sports myself, I at least don’t see any disadvantages, but more benefits.
