Gastric Acid Inhibitory And Gastric Protective Effects Of Cannabis And Cannabinoids

Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

Key Findings

Cannabinoid-based medicines might find utility in treatment of peptic ulcer disease including gastroesophageal reflux. Cannabis/cannabinoids might protect the gastric mucosa by virtue of its antisecretory, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and vasodilator properties. Cannabis and/or cannabinoids protect the gastric mucosa against noxious challenge with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, ethanol as well as against stress induced mucosal damage.
