by Pinky Tyagi Blogger & Writter

Constipation causes dreaded discomfort and everyone struggles with it once in their lifetime. Many treatments are available and you can choose one based on condition severity. Some treatments work in loosening the blockages mildly, while a few are like rapid-fire shots. The medications available OTC can trigger undesired side effects, as your constipation condition may need you to get treated for a long time. 

CBD and constipation 

Currently, CBD products are in high demand because it is relieving and healing people struggling with multiple medical conditions. On, you can check an array of products including CBD tinctures, CBD balms, CBD capsules, and even CBD edibles. The question arises whether CBD oil helps in constipation. Studies have revealed that CBD has the potential to treat constipation. 

It is a known fact that CBD oil is used to treat inflammation, pain, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. CBD gets broken down in the body and interacts with the endocannabinoid system in your body. ECS is responsible for regulating multiple functions and maintaining a state of homeostasis or balance in the body. CBD works with CB2 receptors in the ECS to reduce inflammation intensity across your body. 

During Inflammatory Bowel Disease, your intestines get inflamed excessively causing large sores and swelling within the intestinal tract. Treatment is important to reduce the inflammation and pain a patient suffers from. CBD oil can help because it has anti-inflammatory properties, which helps to get relief from the inflammation and painful symptoms. 

Another advantage is that inflammation across your entire body gets reduced. Your stress level reduces, blood pressure lowers, and digestion gets regulated. Your general health and well-being get improved. These small effects, when combined help to eliminate constipation without treating it explicitly.  

Constipation causes

You also need to get familiar with the causes of constipation.

  • Normal fecal matter blockage because necessary there is a lack of roughage in the diet that helps digestion. 
  • Nerve damage around your anus or intestinal tract due to neurological disorders can impair your ability to pass stool adequately.
  • Pelvic muscles may get damaged making it hard for them to efficiently perform bowel movements.
  • Hormonal issues like a poor performance of thyroid glands or diabetic conditions can contribute to constipation.
  • Worsened cancer conditions can even cause constipation.

Constipation treatment

Doctors recommend changing your diet like adding insoluble fiber for ease of bowel movements. Drink lots of fluids and water for passing looser stools. For people with severe constipation, this may not work not for adults. However, they can increase their workouts to break the clamped bowel movement. Laxatives loosen bowels and turn them into a liquid but you can still struggle with discomfort and pain. 

In extreme cases, surgery is needed to extricate the blocked stool movement. It is a last-resort decision. Fortunately, CBD oil can help to reduce pain and inflammation. It does not create a miracle, but along with a change in diet, drink plenty of water, and regular workouts CBD has the potential to help in getting rid of constipation.
