Cannabidiol Nausea Research

Cannabidiol has been shown to possibly reduce vomiting and nausea-like behavior via a complex chemical mechanism that indirectly counteracts a certain group of autoreceptors in the human brain.

While the exact mechanisms with which Cannabidiol may affect many ailments is not yet fully understood, scientists already have a fairly clear picture about how Cannabidiol reduces nausea and motion sickness, thanks to a large number of clinical and preclinical trials.

The first trials on cannabidiol’s effects on nausea were conducted on animals(mainly rats and shrews), and they found that CBD indeed seemed to suppress nausea and vomiting in those animals. However, since these animals were induced to nausea and vomiting via chemical means, it was still unclear how CBD would affect nausea induced by physical means or caused by illness.

More recent clinical studies conducted on human patients seem to so far align with the above findings. Cannabidiol has been shown to possibly regulate vomiting and reduce nausea-like symptoms in a wide range of illnesses.

In the US, there are already several patents involving Cannabidiol’s anti-nausea and anti-vomiting activities, based on all animal tests that involved induced nausea, as well as the findings from clinical trials with patients who suffered from illnesses that caused nausea.

In other countries, such as the Netherlands, doctors have been prescribing CBD-high cannabis as a treatment to nausea for years now.  As a result, many CBD proponents now believe that Cannabidiol may soon become a widely accepted treatment for nausea and other vomit-inducing conditions. That said, our products are not intended to treat, cure, or diagnose any illnesses or diseases.
