Few people realize the importance of stomach acid and how lack of nutrient breakdown, absorption and assimilation as a result of low stomach acid impacts health or that there is a simplistic solution that doesn’t involve a lifetime of expensive drugs. I think we can lay to rest the idea that the ill effects of cannabis edibles taken on an empty stomach are primarily due to rapid THC absorption or 11-OH-THC formation. Rather, I propose it is due to the relatively low absorption of CBD compared to THC when you haven’t eaten. Of course, let me know in the comments if you disagree.
The cancers and Spinal Stenosis had me in a complete lot of pain for 5 years. Numerous specialists and doctors recommended marijuana for treatment of the pain and the nausea.

In another study the composition of gastric juice was different that stomach acid pH and the conversion rate to THC was only 2.9%.
Chronic stress can impair the body’s ability to produce the proper amount of stomach acid and excessive alcohol consumption can damage the stomach cells that produce stomach acid. Further, if you have osteopenia or osteoporosis, anemia, asthma, arthritis, migraines, hair loss, poor fingernail quality, dementia, cardiovascular involvement-just to list a few– make sure you read about the importance of stomach acid. Malabsorption of nutrients manifests in a variety of conditions that frequently are not traced to poor digestion by allopathic physicians. The mechanism by which THC causes acute pancreatitis has not been fully clarified [4, 6].
With the central nervous system, I have occasionally seen mild paranoia with long-term low and high dose use and the users simply stop use without problems so symptoms after long-term use in some people is possible.

The body’s ECS also has an impact on the body’s transient LES, which can be very helpful for those suffering from GERD. GERD refers to chronic symptoms including mucosal damage that was originally produced by the abnormal reflux within the body’s esophagus.
