Cannabis and Gut Health: How Do They Work Together?

Just as biodiversity is the key to healthy soil and a healthy ecosystem, the same can be said about our gut health. A person’s gut plays an instrumental role in shaping their diet for better or for worse. A poor diet will spur unhealthy eating habits, bad moods, and gluttonous behavior. Whenever you’re in the mood for more junk food and dessert, it could be the sugar and yeast already in your gut driving your yearning for more.

Gut Microbiota & the Endocannabinoid System

Eating healthy and having a diverse diet is made easier with a healthy gut. This is because the gastrointestinal and central nervous systems are in constant dialogue with each other, mostly via the information highway of the vagus nerve. This relationship makes clear the significance of our gut in determining our eating and consumption habits. The dialogue being exchanged also travels throughout the complex network of our body’s endocannabinoid system in what is called the gut-brain axis. The endocannabinoid system plays an important role in helping the gut microbiome affect mental and emotional health. What this ultimately means is that a well-balanced diet, incorporating cannabis in conjunction with something like probiotics, can have a positive influence on our well-being.

Oara Probiotic Cannabis Chocolates 

A believer in health-conscious cannabis products utilizing regenerative and sustainable farming practices, Oara is an award-winning business known for its edibles that promote health and wellness. The company, which considers itself an active ally of the regenerative supply chain, was born out of a desire to heal the gut through nutrition. Its founder, Charlotte Troy, was inspired by her mother’s battle with Parkinson’s, and set out to give the gut “a new vocabulary to speak to the mind.” 

Oara recognizes that health starts in the gut, which is why their premium probiotic cannabis chocolates are the perfect blend that supports gut health, immunity, and mental wellness. It uses Bacillus Coagulans, a probiotic that has been proven to improve digestion and immunity while reducing inflammation. Oara’s chocolates go through an extensive process that starts with using full-spectrum oil from Dem Pure and Sun+Earth certified, and terpene-rich flowers grown by Moon Made Farms, known for their famous BioVortex genetics. It is then infused into silky 70% organic cacao dark chocolate from a family-owned company with decades of experience in producing world-class chocolates. The end result is a taste that is rich, but never bitter.
