cbd oil for celiacs

CBD Oil?

Just wondering if anyone here uses CBD oil to help manage their celiac/got-glutened symptoms. I had experimented with it a little previously with good results but I had a chance to test it out yesterday in the middle of a gluten episode.

I ate out at a "safe" restaurant a few days ago and sure enough the next day I started getting all the fun symptoms. My stomach was so messed up for 2 days straight until I took 2 puffs of CBD on a vape pen and then swallowed a few drops of it under my tongue. Within a few minutes my stomach had literally calmed down 100% and since then I have been feeling fine.

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced anything similar? I am cautiously optimistic that CBD oil may actually help alleviate a celiac reaction. It's kind of expensive so I would love to hear the input of others before I go out and buy any. Thanks!

CBD oil is for sure a lifesaver to anyone with Celiac. I couldn't recommend it highly enough

Where do you buy yours? I just did some quick google search and I'm very intrigued.

It's amazing stuff. It really helps with symptom relief. I also use it for my MS so it's a lifesaver!

I have used it for 2 years now. There have been several studies showing that CBD reduces the symptoms and affects of gluten as well. I got sick from some sort of contamination every couple months before using CBD. Since then, I've been sick twice in two years (both times because my mom thought noodles were gluten free and gave me a huge plate of spaghetti).

However, I've gotten away with things in the last two years that I never would have gotten away with before that. I think the biggest thing is the anti-inflammatory properties that CBD has. Check out this study though! https://www.researchgate.net/publication/236339824_Altered_Expression_of_Type-1_and_Type-2_Cannabinoid_Receptors_in_Celiac_Disease

A lot of technical terminology in there, but basically what I got is people with celiac disease that eat gluten have CB2 receptors 6x higher than normal. After 12 months of a gluten free diet, their CB2s are close to, or at normal range. CB1 receptors were still elevated, meaning CB2 is the primary target of celiac disease. Basically, people eating gluten, when they aren't supposed to are much more receptive to cannabinoids. It was also found that gluten-induced damage was the cause for the drastic CB2 increase, at least at the protein level.

So, what I gather from all of that, is CBD (and other cannabinoids) should work a LOT more effectively in a person that has been "glutened" than someone that is not. Meaning, they shouldn't get the same degree of damage if they are taking cannabinoids, then someone who is not.

Is Hemp Gluten Free?

Nearly 5 million Americans follow a gluten-free diet. Gluten, a protein found in certain grains (like wheat, rye, and barley), is linked to inflammation and digestive issues for people who suffer from celiac disease and gluten intolerance or sensitivity. Eliminating gluten can be a way to control gastrointestinal symptoms and (for those with celiac disease) avoid causing damage in their small intestine.

If you are interested in trying products made from the hemp plant – such as CBD oil – you may be curious about whether hemp is gluten free (GF). The good news is that hemp itself is gluten-free (GF). However, hemp can be grown in the same fields as grains that do contain gluten. If you are on a GF diet, you should be sure to only purchase products that are certified gluten free.

Green Wellness Life offers a full range of products made from hemp, including CBD oil capsules, topicals, and edibles. Many of our products are gluten free, making them a safe choice for anyone who wants to explore hemp and/or CBD while maintaining a gluten free diet.

What Is Hemp?

Hemp is a type of cannabis, a flowering plant in the Cannabaceae family. It is very similar to the marijuana plant, with one key difference: the level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the psychoactive component in marijuana that makes you feel high or stoned.

Under U.S. law, to be considered hemp, a cannabis plant must contain no more than 0.3% THC. Hemp that has 0.3% or less THC content by dry weight can be legally grown and sold in the United States. By contrast, the THC content of marijuana is often 30% or greater.

Hemp has a number of uses. It can be turned into a number of products, including paper, textiles, animal feed, plastic, and clothing. It can also be used to make food products, such as hemp seeds, hemp protein powder, hemp milk, and hemp oil.

There are a number of nutritional benefits associated with hemp seed, which is considered a complete protein that is high in fiber. The stalks, leaves and flowers of hemp also contain compounds known as cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD). When CBD is extracted from hemp, it can be made into CBD oil and various other products.

Is Hemp GF?

The hemp plant itself does not contain any gluten. However, hemp is often grown in rotation with other crops that contain gluten, such as wheat. Crop rotation is a practice used by farmers to return nutrients to the soil and increase soil health.

Because farmers rotate hemp with grains, they often use the same equipment to harvest, store, and transport these crops. This raises the possibility of cross-contamination. While hemp is GF, there is a chance that some hemp could be above the legal limit of 20 parts per million of gluten.

If you are interested in products made from hemp, the best way to avoid gluten cross contamination is to seek out products that are gluten free. Manufacturers can only use this description on their packaging or in their advertising if their product has less than 20 ppm of gluten.

Should I Take a Hemp Product If I Am on a Gluten Free Diet?

There are many potential benefits associated with hemp and products derived from the hemp plant (such as CBD oil). Hemp itself is a great source of fiber, magnesium, and essential fatty acids. As noted above, early research shows that CBD may reduce the symptoms of certain conditions – including digestive issues that often lead people to adopt a gluten free diet.

Before adding any supplement to your diet, you should always consult with your doctor. They will be able to advise you on potential interactions, proper serving sizes, and whether the supplement may help your specific condition.

If you do decide to try a hemp product, be sure to only purchase items that are certified gluten free. For CBD oils and other products, look for a “GF” designation on the label. In particular, be sure that the carrier oil used for a CBD tincture is gluten free and that a CBD capsule is not made with wheat starch.

You should also seek out CBD products that are made from industrial hemp grown in the United States, and that have been independently tested for quality. This can help to assure you that you are getting what you pay for – and nothing else.
