Hello Everyone,

I have had Crohn's Disease since 2 years and I have been on 5 ASA's for a year now. I was diagnosed with a Fistula in 2016.

Looking around online I found that Crohn's Disease patients have found relief from their symptoms using CBD oil...

Has anyone ever used CBD oil for treating the Crohn's with Fistula? If so, what was your dosage and how did your doctor respond to it?

Thank you all!

Hello & welcome to the forum. Here in the states the gi's will put a patient on Remicade to heal fistulas. It has a pretty good track record with healing them & keeping the disease in check. The 5 ASA's are typically used for UC instead of crohns. If your disease is not under control, I doubt you will have a lot of success with CBD oil. I do not know where you are reading & getting your information from. Keep in mind, just because you read it on the internet, it does not mean it is accurate or true.

You can always ask your dr & get his input.

Thank you for replying!

I have "Mild Crohn's" According to my doctor. He said that the fistula is the only symptom of my Crohn's and reducing the inflammation in the large intestine is key to stop discharge from the fistula. My doctor has told me to use Infliximab as a last resort... Also, I read about using cannabis here and some other websites... I am still new to this idea and would be glad for any help!

Thank you
