HOW CANNABIS RELIEVES INFLAMATORY BOWEL DISEASES, EXPLAINED

Source: https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2018-08/uomm-clt080918

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts and the University of Bath conducted a study
in a mouse the link of cannabis as to the infammatory bowel disease

Researchers discovered that gut inflammation is regulated by two important processes

The first process, promotes an aggressive immune response in the gut that destroys
dangerous pathogens, but which can also damage the lining of the intestine when immune cells
attack indiscriminately.

The second pathway, turns off the inflammation response via special molecules
transported across the epithelial cells lining the gut by the same process already known to
remove toxins from these cells into the intestine cavity. this response requires a naturally-
produced molecule called an endocannabinoid, which is very similar to cannabinoid molecules
found in cannabis.

However, Professor Randy Mrsny from the University of Bath Department of Pharmacy and
Pharmacology explains that while it is a plausible explanation, such study have not proven
experimentally in humans.

Preliminary brain scan studies conducted by researchers at Washington University School of


Medicine in St. Louis reveals that Vagus nerve stimulation brings about changes in brain metabolism
weeks or even months before patients begin to feel better.

Charles R. Conway, MD, associate professor of psychiatry, and his team, followed 13 people with
treatment-resistant depression.

The researchers performed positron emission tomography (PET) brain imaging prior to the initiation
of stimulation The scans showed significant changes in brain metabolism following three months of
stimulation, which typically preceded improvements in symptoms of depression by several months.
The PET scans demonstrated that structures deeper in the brain also begin to change several months after
nerve stimulation begins.

TERRY DEGRAW
Terry Degraw had been an obsessed for almost 15 years. But after vacation in April 2017,
she decided to start eating low carbs meal. She started losing weight gradually.

As she go further researched she discovered OMAD (one meal a day). Terry started OMAD
