Bladder Pain Syndrome or interstitial cystitis is a disabling chronically painful condition mostly in women that affects all parts of one’s life. The cause is unknown, the treatments few and effectiveness poor.
We have good evidence that CBD reduces all inflammatory cytokines seen in BPS, including IL1, 6 and 8 as well as IL-17. On top of this, CBD blocks the CB1 receptor activation which has been shown to be involved precisely in this condition.
Thus, there is every reason t...o believe CBD could be highly effective improving the lives of women and men with this terrible affliction. The exact amount of CBD needed has not been studied or reported but based on clinical responses for other conditions a suggested amount might be 30 mg per day.
