Do anyone with Crohn’s take the CBD products for pain, etc? If so do you fine that you have more diarrhea?

Gerry, the CBD is a mixed bag on pain relief. Some say it helps, some say nada. It is like anything else you can try it & see if it helps or not. I have not seen any posts about it having an effect on diarrhea one way or the other.

Sorry I can't be of any help.

I use MJ as a tincture and I also vape. I would think the THC side of it would help for pain, also nausea, and obviously appetite. I would love to see a combination of CBD and THC at a higher percentage then 10 or 12.

I have used synthetic pills call nabolone (or something spelt that way) - I found them lovely at first but would drain all the energy out of you after being on them for more then a couple of weeks.

But to answer your question.... I find cannabis reduces the amount of BMs I have. The days I dont use it, my Bms are less formed

Hi Gerry

I use Medipen (vape) which has the highest concentration of CBD I have found so far. It helps with abdominal pain. For me, it actually stops it completely. Not sure if it’s because it relaxes the smooth muscles of the large intestine or there’s another reason but it helps.

Hi Gerry,

I tried using inhaled marijuana for 2 weeks. After the first 24h I no longer had any crohns symptoms. During the 2 weeks I gained 12lbs and only had 1-2 formed BMs a day. I stopped for a week and lost all the weight and have multiple urgencies daily. I am going to resume marijuana again as a long term solution and see if it works to get me into remission!

Sorry if this is a dumb question but if medical MJ is legal in my state does my insurance have to cover it?

No, haven't heard of an insurance paying. A lot of the people in the chronic pain forum were trying it hoping to get off pain meds. They were not successful & found it was too expensive to continue with it.

Thanks Susie, I was afraid that was the case. A friend of mine was using OTC CBD for pain and had to stop because of the expense, too bad because it was helping her joint pain.
