What is Nausea?

Nausea is typically intended to cause the act or process of vomiting; it happens after neurons in the brainstem discover a toxic factor in the bloodstream - the brain begins to trigger vomiting to dispel the toxin out of the body. But there are also instances when nausea occurs without any contagion; motion sickness is a prime example.

Even though nausea and vomiting are remarkably common, they often serve as indications to other severe conditions or underlying illnesses. Our age and personal health play a significant role in why our bodies experience nausea and vomiting; however, physicians can confirm a general diagnosis based on when the queasiness and regurgitation occurred.

Scientific evidence demonstrates how the endocannabinoid system within our bodies manages nausea and vomiting. CBD displays anti-nausea characteristics which passively interacts with receptors in the dorsal raphe nucleus - the midline of our brain stem. CBD also counters vomiting by attaching to CB1 receptors which creates a biochemical response that acts as a suppressor. After many tests and published reports, several clinical scientists acknowledge CBD for nausea and vomiting as an efficient method for chemotherapy patients and other therapeutic applications.

According to published observations, CBD displayed the ability to boost the endogenous cannabinoid enzyme, Anandamide, which substantially influences appetite, pain, and even fertility. Scientists also found that CBD is capable of significantly reducing nauseating feelings - which consequently lowers the risk of vomiting - by activating the monoamine neurotransmitter, 5-hydroxytryptamine-1A (5-HT1A); results indicated that this natural process proved more efficient against nausea and vomiting than traditional medications.
