    Exploring the potential benefits of CBD for IBD

    Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a group of conditions that cause inflammation in the digestive tract. Depending on their level of severity, they can be anything from frustrating inconveniences to life-altering health issues with potentially dangerous consequences. CBD, a non-intoxicating compound (phytocannabinoid) derived from medical cannabis and hemp, has gained considerable attention for its potential therapeutic properties. Studies have shown that CBD possesses potential anti-inflammatory, analgesic and immune-modulating effects, which could make it a promising option for managing the symptoms of IBD.
