Does THC effect your gut issues?

Posted on

Recently, it was brought to my attention that there are some news articles circulating on the internet stating that marijuana will make your gut issues worse or even cause gut issues. After making some extensive phone calls to the researchers there is a consensus that a high THC plant may slow gut motility causing more gut issues, but if a person uses a high CBD low THC plant then that usually isn’t the case. High CBD plants or products are used more to help bring down inflammation in the gut. Adding in probiotics, golden seal, and or l- glutamine can help provide healing for the gut.

Researchers also say to stay away from concentrates if you have any gut issues. They said that they really don’t know what is in the concentrates if they haven’t been tested so it is better to just stick with other products. cbd
