CAN CANNA OILS BCP HELP WITH DIGESTIVE ISSUES??
This seemed to be the big question this week. We had heaps of people asking, so let’s take a look at how Canna Oils BCP may be able to help!
The human digestive system is an enormously complicated series of organs and tissues. The GI tract (the gut) runs from your mouth, where food goes in, to your rectum, where the processed food comes out. Everything in between, including your esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine, are all part of your GI system as well. The structure and function of digestive cells is therefore hard to summarise without the use of a very thick medical textbook – so we won’t try to (haha)!!
So then, as we know, Beta Caryophyllene (BCP) is widely recognised for its use in pain and inflammation relief, immune system enhancement, sleep as well as stress and anxiety reduction. BUT, it also has been found to promote healthy gut and digestion by protecting the cells that line the digestive tract.
When using Beta Caryophyllene (BCP) one may experience a sense of calm in the gut, which may aid in treating anxiety related issues in addition to a feeling of general wellbeing.
That sounds so good – a sense of calm in the gut and mind!! I definitely want that.
In addition, we also read in a previous Blog (click here) how the “Endocannabinoid receptors in the gut help to regulate and support homeostasis (balance) with functions such as motility [movement of food through the gut], digestion, inflammatory response, and even immunological responses”.
HANDY TIP: Besides taking your Canna Oils BCP orally, we have been told that some people also apply topically across their stomach area and find good relief from bloating and / or abdominal pain. Give it a try and let us know what happens!
I hope you found that helpful. Let us know if you did!!
