Could Marijuana Gum Help Cure Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Published

on

Dutch scientists are currently testing the effectiveness of using the CanChew Plus, a chewing gum made by the AXIM Biotechnologies firm in the US to treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which affects more than 3.5 million Americans each year. The trial will commence in December to test the connection between the CBD and IBS.

According to a team of researchers at the Wageningen University in Netherlands, the CBD – the key compound found in the cannabis could help ease the colon spasms that cause cramps, constipation, bloating, and diarrhea in patients. The gum contains powerful endogenous cannabinoids receptors that interrelate well in the patient’s digestive tract system thus releasing tension.

The trial is a landmark for both the medical cannabis industry that has stood too much pressure from the federal government that has knocked out numerous marijuana’s ‘medical benefits’ as unverified and the IBS research. The condition accounts for about 12% of total patient’s visits to medical care providers annually leading to over $21 billion spent in medical expenses, low productivity, and work absenteeism in the US alone.

According to Dr. Stuart Titus, the CEO at Medical Marijuana, Inc, IBS is one of the common disorders affecting about 15% of the population across the globe with no valid treatment options available in the market. The study is the first of its kind in the CBD research for the treatment of IBS and highlights how far AXIM Biotechnologies is far ahead in the clinical development programs.

The condition largely affects women more than men with 60% of IBS patients being female and 40% male counterparts. The CanChew Plus gum will be given to 40 trial participants aged between 18 and 65 who have been previously been diagnosed with IBS.

According to the AXIM CEO, if the IBS trial succeeds, they will further proceed with trials on other products of the firm for treatment of various disorders including the ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease and much more.
