Using cannabis and CBD for Ulcers

A peptic ulcer is a disease deterioration in an area known as duodenum in the skin of the body or the first section of the small intestine. If the peptic ulcer is located in the stomach, it is called a gastric ulcer. In the first layer of the inner lining, most ulcers occur. When the opening enters through the abdomen or through the duodena, perforation is considered a medical emergency.

Causes and Symptoms

Increased risk of PEPTIC ulcers can result from: too much alcohol, nicotine or smoking cigarettes and frequent use of aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen or any other anti-inflammatory anti-steroid drugs (NSAIDs), yet remember that aspirin or NSAIDs are safe for most people once in a while.

There can be no signs of small ulcers, whereas larger ulcers can lead to many symptoms, including severe bleeding. A common symptom is abdominal pain but it does not occur all the time. There is a great deal of pain among persons. Certain signs include the sense of completeness that you cannot drink water, hunger and a depression in your stomach, often 1–3 hours after a meal, mild nausea (vomiting may relieve symptoms), pain or discomfort in the upper abdomen, bloody or dark tarry stools, chest pain, fatigue, vomiting, and weight loss.

How Cannabis Can Help

Avoiding certain foods such as acidic fruits and fatty foods could help and prevent bad lifestyles such as smoking, caffeine consumption, and excessive alcohol consumption. 

Many antibiotics may be used as well. Nevertheless, these drugs can, in fact, result in common side effects including nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and pain in the abdomen. Cannabis is a safe and natural substance, which is an excellent alternative for certain people who are affected.

The herb can deliver some of the benefits of traditional pharmaceutical products used to reduce the quality of life for the patient without any harmful and unpleasant side-effects.

Cannabis could reduce some of the symptoms caused by the disease and may also work to reduce inflammation at a deeper level at the root cause of gastritis.
