Hi all:

I was wanting to know if anyone with UC has experience taking cannabis oil and what effect it had.

Shona Banda (google her name) feels that it cured her of Crohn's so maybe it can help with UC.

I tried searching HealingWell but the search seems to apply to the whole site, not just the Ulcerative Colitis section. I'm new to the site and maybe not searching in the correct place?

I am seriously thinking about going to a state where it's legal and taking it.

Thanks for your input.

I actually smoke mj, I wouldn't say it necessarily heals the inflammation that is caused by IBD but it most definitely helps with symptoms. There is no cure for Crohn's or UC, she might be in remission, or feel like she is symptom wise but she'd have to be scoped to see if there's still inflammation or not because who knows how much of the oil she's using in a day, like I said, cannabis can definitely mask symptoms but that doesn't necessarily mean it's aiding with the inflammation.
DX with Crohn's Disease in 1991 shortly after becoming ill. CD was affecting small and large bowel & anus (perianal crohn's skin tags) & rectum for first 2 yrs of becoming sick, CD remained constant in colon (Crohn's colitis) & anus with anal tags, intolerant to oral meds. Currently on Humira (Feb 2014) once a week and B12, Vitamin A and Omega's daily. In remission but trying to combat IBS D/C.

HI, im taking it right now.. Rick Simpson oil or RSO. Kinda too early to tell but i believe it is simmering down my symptoms. Ive only been taking it for two weeks at night. I just take a rice size squirt from the applicator on my finger and eat it. I think the key is to work up to a level where you are taking a gram a day!.. Anyway i took it during the day for the first time yesterday and its very potent stuff!..got me a little buzzed. When i take it at night before bedtime i cant tell, just sleep really good. IM going to keep going with it and see what happens. Oh also, i bought some edibles as well, Cheeba chews, brownie, etc...My doctor said that i should be eating it instead of puffing to get it down there were the inflammation is. Maybe a cannabis drink would be good as well..?

PB4: If you're willing to smoke it, why not try the oil? I don't want to get high and don't want smoke going in my lungs. And some people say the oil is much more concentrated and effective.

I have been reading a lot about this and if I had the oil I would take it right now. I'm trying to figure out how to get to a state that allows medical marijuana so I can get some. Looks like Oregon will allow me to visit there and buy some even though I am not a resident.

I don't know, I smoke cigarettes too so smoking mj isn't a big deal to me, although it would be nice to not have the mental stoned effect which I heard the oil can help with that but I mostly smoke it just before bed, since doing so I haven't had any nocturnal bm's and I can actually sleep through the night without waking up whether it's to use the toilet or not, I've never been a very sound sleeper even before getting sick. The only oil I would have access to is the kind you're also suppose to smoke (from my understanding, it's not like I know a whole lot about mj and all the different forms of it and how they're suppose to be or can be used.

All I know is that it helps me and gives me a break from using the toilet...I have IBS (my CD is in remission thanks to possibly the combination of using mj and Humira but I still have IBS issues that are as intrusive as having IBD).

Did you grow your own? If not, how did you come by it? I would love to try this but I live in a state where it is not legal. I would buy some but have been a little put off from seeking a third party after reading and hearing Rick Simpson's constant protestations to grow your own and not buy it because there are so many scammers pushing it. Finding a reputable source to purchase it from seems like my easiest course right now but I definitely don't want to get scammed. Even with his constant warnings I know there are tons of people complaining about it happening to them, unfortunately.

Hi no i dont grow my own or make the oil, though i would love to! I bought it at a dispensary here in town. $40 a gram..the only one that has it. They get it from up in NorCAL. They test it, make sure its legit. Before that i had a supplier that made it and it was really good..trying to find that guy again. I have heard that there is some bunk stuff going around and scam artists.

Why not hemp CBD? It contains the same cannabinoids without the THC. Depends on where you live, but it's legal to buy at dispensaries without a greencard. I'm sure there are plenty of reputable sellers online, just keep asking around. It helps me with sleep and anxiety and I imagine it helps my UC but no way to tell how much.
