Celiac disease has recently become a well-studied idiopathic disorder. According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, 1 in every 100 people is at risk for celiac disease. Worse, first degree relatives of someone with celiac have a 1 in 10 chance to develop the disease. Around 80% of people with celiac disease don’t know they have it and may be asymptomatic or underdiagnosed.
So, how can cannabinoids impact those struggling with the disease? One study shows that those with celiac disease, and are untreated, have a much higher level or cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. As this study points out:
"Our data show higher levels of both CB1 and CB2 receptors during active disease and normal CBR levels in treated celiac patients. In conclusion, we demonstrate an up-regulation of CB1 and CB2 mRNA and protein expression, that points to the therapeutic potential of targeting CBR in patients with celiac disease."
In short, there are more CB1 and CB2 receptors available in those with untreated celiac disease. This means that cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol (CBD) will be received more efficiently.
Additionally, it can be implied that someone who eats gluten accidentally would then have an increase in these receptors as well. Some of the symptoms that cannabinoids have been shown to help, that are also symptoms of celiac disease include vomiting, arthritis and inflammation, anxiety and depression, migraines or seizures, and more.
