Can CBD Help Manage Bowel Incontinence?

Bowel incontinence, or fecal incontinence, describes the condition where you have difficulty controlling your bowels, thus causing involuntary soiling.

When one develops bowel incontinence, one feels a sudden urge to go to the toilet, but usually, by the time they reach the toilet, they have soiled.

Some people experience bowel incontinence without a prior urge to go to the toilet. Wearing absorbent pads and changing diet are some remedies.

Also, CBD has been suggested to exert its anti-inflammatory properties to minimize gut inflammation; it also contains analgesic properties.

Although CBD may help with minimizing some symptoms of bowel incontinence, CBD is not medically approved for treating this issue.
