Can CBD help Nausea?
Whether it is a touch of travel sickness, or from an existing condition, Nausea should not be stopping you from feeling 100%.
Recent research has indicated that CBD may provide relief from nausea caused by a variety of conditions.
What is Nausea?
Nausea is normally a discomfort in the stomach that often comes with the horrible feeling you need to vomit.
It usually comes with a tightness in the stomach or indigestion which is hard to snap out of once it comes.
Despite the horrible feeling, nausea is actually a defence mechanism by the body to quickly get rid of something bad you may have ingested.
What is CBD?
CBD or ‘cannabidiol’ is a chemical compound known as a cannabinoid found natural in the cannabis and Hemp plants.
As sold in the UK, CBD does not contain ‘THC’ which is the chemical responsible for giving cannabis it’s characteristic ‘high’ feeling.
CBD is safe, non-psychotic and numerous studies have suggested it has multiple health and therapeutic uses.
The main role of CBD as it interact with the endocannabinoid system, is to return the body to homeostasis. Homeostasis is when the body is at its happy middle place, where your temperature and physiological systems are all in sync.
How can CBD help Nausea?
Nausea occurs when neurons are send signals to the Central Nervous system to induce nausea or vomiting. These signals will then be sent to the gastrointestinal system causing the muscles to spasm and induce vomit.
In recent studies, CBD has been shown to prevent the severity of nausea. CBD interacts with serotonin receptors in the brain. Taken long term, CBD can regulate Serotonin levels, so they are less likely to induce the feeling to vomit.
CBD is also an antispasmodic. This means it can interact with the muscles in the abdomen, preventing them from spasming and therefore causing a person to vomit.
