Constipation is a common side effect of antidepressants, so if you’re using CBD it’s easy to wonder if cannabidiol reacts similarly and can cause constipation.
Can CBD cause constipation?
CBD side effects like constipation are rare. In fact, you’re more likely to experience diarrhea as a side effect.
If you’re experiencing bowel issues while taking CBD, reduce your dosage and see if your symptoms improve.
The good news: CBD can help with constipation.
CBD oil can actually help digestion issues. In fact, CBD may help with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and chronic constipation.
The endocannabinoid system helps regulate our gut and bowel systems. Essentially, CBD helps relax your nerves, which can in turn help your digestive system relax.
What kind of CBD should I try to help with constipation?
If you’re needing relief from constipation, try a tincture under your tongue.
