What is Digestion?

Digestion is the process of breaking down complex foods into simpler forms. Digestion allows the body to absorb the nutrients it needs for energy, growth, and repair. The digestion starts in the mouth and ends at the anal-rectum opening.

Complications with Digestion

  1. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): This condition occurs when stomach acid flows back up into the oesophagus, causing heartburn, chest pain, and difficulty swallowing.
  2. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS): This is a chronic condition that affects the large intestine, causing abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhoea or constipation.
  3. Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): This includes conditions such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, which cause inflammation and damage to the digestive tract, leading to diarrhoea, abdominal pain, and weight loss.
  4. Celiac disease: This is an autoimmune disorder in which the body cannot tolerate gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. Eating gluten triggers an immune response that damages the small intestine, leading to digestive symptoms, as well as fatigue, anaemia, and other health problems.
  5. Peptic ulcers: These are sores that develop in the lining of the stomach or the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine), causing pain, bloating, nausea, and vomiting.
  6. Gallstones: These are hard deposits that form in the gallbladder, blocking the flow of bile and causing abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting.

Digestive Health with Cannabis

The complications related to digestion occur due to the disturbance in the body’s regular mechanisms like the Endocannabinoid system. And Cannabis works by regulating the Endocannabinoid system in the body. ECS regulates a range of processes in the body, mainly mood, hormones, appetite, sleep, pain sensation, and immune function. ECS comprises three main parts, endocannabinoids( naturally occurring in the body), enzymes ( used to break down endocannabinoids) and receptors( attachment sites). When our endocannabinoids default in function or are unregulated, discomfort in the form of diseases, pain, imbalances and inflammation occurs. Cannabis works by bringing this system back into regulation.

Why should one use, Cannabis as food for Digestive Health?

  • Pain Relief: The pain-relieving properties of CBD(a compound in the Cannabis plant) are well-known. CBD is anti-inflammatory in nature and works to reduce inflammation throughout the body, significantly decreasing pain.
  • Reducing Inflammation: CBD acts as an antioxidant and decreases oxidative stress and systematic inflammation in the body. Inflammation is the root cause of most pain. By decreasing inflammation in the body, CBD reduces the intensity of pain. CBD can also reduce neuropathic pain by countering hyperalgesia (an abnormally heightened pain response in the body).
  • Regulating Immune Response: Whenever our body experiences an injury, the body’s innate immune response to it with an inflammatory response that activates the pain pathways. CBD can modulate this immune response by decreasing the levels of the pro-inflammatory cytokines thus decreasing discomfort.
  • Regularizing bowel movements: THC, interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in regulating the digestive system. THC may help to stimulate the digestive tract, leading to increased contractions and a reduction in the time it takes for food to move through the intestines.
