CBD oil for IBS?

Has anyone tried CBD oil for IBS?

I have read only good things about it and a friend of mine with M.E has recently started taking it and he seams to think it is helping him.

I have already brought some and im going to try it in a vape when it comes, But curious to here anyone else's feedback.

i suspect the CBD may have a calming effect on the body, but wonder if it may react like an irritant and cause a flair up...

Hi Robwilde. I decided to buy CBD oil after reading good comments about it.Ive been taking it for 5 weeks now.I can honestly say it has calmed my ibs symptoms down.I also have hemi facial spasm too and it has also helped with that too.I take it by the dropper and it tastes foul.So if your vaping it should be better. Good luck I hope you have success with it👍

Hi. Oh that's good it's helping you. I don't smoke but I've chose the vape method just to keep it out of my guts in case it dose cause irritation as I have a extremely sensitive tum🙂

This group on face book is good for information on CBD products and they recommend where to buy, CBD brothers are one of their recommendations CBDConsumerGroupUK/EU

My Ibs D has settled down a bit but I am taking Quest Kyolic Garlic 600mg and BioCare Bio-Acidophilus Forte and my Zinc levels were low so I also take a Zinc supplement recommended by a nutritionist.

I started taking CBD after a lot of research and found CBD brothers and requested a sample which they sent and seemed to work for my osteoporosis pain.

Been using 5% oil for over a month now. Have to say that I actually started taking it for other health issues and never even considered possible benefits for IBS(d), just never crossed mind at all (diagnosed 6 years ago after chemo, a link? don't know? But nothing has helped and symptoms have been getting progressively worse and bouts longer and longer ... sadly I had hit reluctant acceptance!). So imagine my delight to find 3 days into CBD oil I had my first normal poo in 6 years. I have now been virtually symptom free for about 5 weeks! I for one, will be on CBD oil for life 😁

I always thought it was a little too coincidental, chemo has a lot to answer for, but on the flip side, probably wouldn't be here without it. Necessary evil. Hope u r well x

Look it up. Its called cannabidiol. My cbd gels have the hemp oil in it. I get it from CV Sciences, Inc. Its in the USA.

Is it something you take when the need arises, or every day? I saw bottles on the site for between $25-30. Could you tell me, how long does a bottle last you? Thanks:)

I use the cbd gold getls which are 15mg. I take one every day.

I also vape or use Edibles. Works better with a very small amount of THC if it’s legal where you live. 95% CBD w/5% THC is what I use. It doesn’t make you feel high at all. I also use a 50/50 blend when I need to relax. Both help my Pain SO much.

Well I tried the CBD oil in the vape pen. And I think it caused me to have a massive ibs flair up. I've been very nauseated and have had to run to the toilet 6 times, and only managed about 4 hours of sleep due to bloating and sickyness.

I'm not certain it was the CBD oil as it might of been the mint flavour they added, or it could of been the vegetable glycerine, or propylene glycol used to dilute it so it will vape. But either way something caused me to become quite unwell.

I do have an extremely sensitive stomach so after I recover from this attack, which in me can last week's at times.. I'll try a brand that uses a CBD free from PG and VG. If that causes the same effect I would say vaping it isn't a good way to take it.. for me.

I'll update this post as I go on :)

I have recently given CBD oil a try RobWilde having read only positive reviews on it. Unfortunately it made me feel very sickly, gave me a really bad headache & very painful ibs-d flare up. So disappointed as had high hopes. Hope you fair better with it.

Hi ... unfortunately I've given it up as I tried it a few times since I last posted and it made me feel really sickly to, like on deaths door kind of awful ... I probably won't ever try it again as my body is extremely sensitive and it was just an irritant. Not sure if it's for everyone and really depends of the type of ibs, but all in all.. Not recommended

Think my body must be as sensitive as yours, I felt the same really unwell & the constant headache(well more like migraine)was horrendous. I ended up going into work late(and by late I mean after 12pm)on 2 days because of it, so definitely not for me. Sorry to hear it didnt work for you but its nice to know its not just me.
