Hey I found this on PubMed today.

http://www.springerlink.com/content/pj24p7323lp31105/fulltext.pdf

It talks about the effects of Cannabis Sativa on the GI Tract.

Maybe I should book my next GI appointment for 4:20?


nono I do not endorse in any way the use of an illegal controlled substance nono

Sorry, DUDE. I believe your physician doesn't have an opening until April 20th of next year!

Just a quick FYI - Medical marijuana is categorically approved for Crohn's/UC in many states.
36 year old mother of a fabulous toddler.
Diagnosed with Crohn's July 2007. I believe it's in the right side of my colon.
Currently taking Entocort 6 mg/day (tapering down), Asacol, Protonix 40mg/day.

On Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) since late July and seeing improvement in "output" quality and hopefully therefore absorption. Taking SCD legal supplements: B vitamins, Folonic Acid 800mg, EnZym Complete DPP IV Aid by Kirkman, and Saccaromyces Boulardii (a probiotic yeast).

Gastritis is back - constant, gnawing hunger. Yech.

Too funny Frank! nice reply:)

I suppose if you could have the marijuana without smoking it (bad for lungs) and without the THC, the rest of it might actually do you some good.

Even so....rolling papers are not covered under my insurance policy.

"Marinol" is the prescribed form.  I use it when I have bad flare up's.  It does work for me and I do get the munchies.  Suffered with Crohns for 26 years, 4 resections 81/94/03/07.  I have tried everything and I am still looking for something effective. I have to manage this disease cause I have 2 young kids!  I am tired of people saying "Keep a positive attitude".   Bite me!  You dont live with a Crhonic Disease and the other fun stuff such as arthritis, short bowel syndrome, fatigue, Chronic Diarrhea....... Add to all that during the last surgery at the Mayo Clinic they found "Colitis".  So I am the lucky winner of 2 great digestive diseases track.  I think I just better stay "numb" for the duration.

I have talked to other folks who had some positive results from one form or another of cannabis.

I have the misfortune of being allergic to the stuff, and get migraines and nausea when I'm around the smoke. I'll have to keep the script form in mind.

I use it in a liquid form and it does fight inflammation. Half ml of herbs a day keeps the inflammation at bay.

It helps his pain but by far not his flares or symptoms. I know he has tried not to smoke before but goes back bc the pain. He is on Humira for the last couple of months and it is helping, I don't know if he is still using it while on humira. Years ago he got busted in the city and his Dr wrote him a detailed letter stating the benefits of use with CD. I can't use the stuff, as I said it just makes me feel tired and lazy but he has been taking this med daily for over 15yrs and has built up a tolerance I guess bc he works a labor intensive job 40+hrs a week and heads his crew and has a great family and is always doing stuff with his kids etc. So I guess it comes down to what works well for some doesn't for others? But I have never tried it long enough to get any kind of tolerance.
