Medical and scientific professionals agree that irritable bowel syndrome could have a “brain-gut connection”, meaning anxiety and depression may cause IBS, with one constantly fueling the other. This marijuana-infused chewing gum could be the solution!

 

About 3.5 million people in America experience IBS.

 

Dutch doctors say that a marijuana-infused chewing gum made by an American marijuana company could “cure” IBS.

 

It’s been known that CBD, or cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid with known anti-inflammatory properties, has shown promise in treating IBS. So, it’s no surprise that a CBD-derived pharmaceutical intended for IBS treatment arrived.

 

Medical researchers from Wageningen University in the Netherlands will begin testing CBD-infused gum made by Medical Marijuana, Inc., a San Diego, California company best known now for touting hemp-derived CBD oil.

 

The lab tests for “CanChew” will be the first time CBD’s efficacy as an IBS treatment will undergo lab testing. This is huge because IBS currently has no proven cure.

 

CBD could reduce the frequency and severity of colon spasms that afflict IBS sufferers. If the tension in the digestive tract is reduced, it could reduce cramping, bloating and allow an IBS sufferer to perform bowel movements.

 

There’s 50 milligrams of CBD in each piece of gum. Forty patients with IBS, ranging in age from 18 to 65, will receive the gum, with other study participants receiving a placebo. Participants will be allowed up to six pieces of gum a day to help control their IBS symptoms.

 

AXIM, medical marijuana’s investment arm, believes that the CBD gum could be effective in treating other GI diseases like colitis and Crohn’s disease. That would be a big deal for many people, as Crohn’s is particularly awful.

 

It is unclear when the gum would make its way to American shores and into the hands of IBS patients. AXIM says it’s ready to launch straight into a second round of clinical trails if the gum does well in the Netherlands.
