Does CBD Oil Help with IBS? – My Wife’s Success Story

Last updated on

Trying being the spouse or significant other of a person diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and you are suffering right along with your spouse and it affects the family as a whole in more ways than you can imagine unless you have lived it.

My wife has tried everything the doctors recommended or prescribed with very little change.

She tried diets, exercised more, taking different supplements and herbs including Magnesium Citrate, Aloe Vera Juice, Bentonite Clay, Chamomile tea, and others.

There were brief signs of relief but they were as I said very brief.

Does Cbd Oil Help with IBS? – My Wife’s Success Story

We were at our wit’s end and it only caused more relationship tensions which seemed to just compound the issue.

We started to see ads pop up all of over the Internet regarding the use of Medical Marijuana and CBD oil. At this point, we were willing to try just about anything.

We are lucky enough to live in a state that has passed laws regarding the use of Medical Marijuana but it is still not that easy to obtain and requires a Medical Marijuana Card.

So we took the easier path to verify the research we found was credible and went with CBD oil instead of Medical Marijuana which by our research was supposed to have a greater effect.

False information about so many subjects circulates the Internet. From people posting what they think is true to people trying to rile others, a ton of nonfactual information is spread across the Internet.

One topic, in particular, that has plenty of untrue information about it in memes and blogs is drug testing.

What my wife did not want was to experience the psychoactive effects that come from THC like being high. Not that we had to worry about it but CBD oils with very low to a zero percent of THC are not likely to cause an issue with drug testing.


A friend of my wife’s was not so lucky and had to go through the whole Medical Marijuana Card path and that worked best for her.

According to, the process of getting a medical marijuana card differs from state to state. In some states, you can obtain your card quickly online. In other states, it is more difficult. The cost of an online service ranges from $50 to $200, depending on the state in which you live.

Both, CBD oil and medical marijuana are supported to have positive results in the treatment of IBS and work in different ways. The THC component in medical cannabis reduces intestinal motility which eases the pain that is associated with excess motility. While CBD oils work by reducing inflammation.

Which way you decide to go is up to you, but I can tell you that my wife has definitely improved and as a result, all aspects of our family life working again, enough said!
