Scientific Research into Medicinal Cannabis – Crohn’s Disease, IBS & Collitis

Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It causes inflammation of your digestive tract, which can lead to abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss and malnutrition. Inflammation caused by Crohn’s disease can involve different areas of the digestive tract in different people.

The inflammation caused by Crohn’s disease often spreads deep into the layers of affected bowel tissue. Crohn’s disease can be both painful and debilitating, and sometimes may lead to life-threatening complications.

Symptoms of Crohn’s Disease

The symptoms of Crohn’s disease can vary depending on where you have the disease. But, some of the most common include:

  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Severe diarrhea
  • Bloody stool
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Wasting (difficulty keeping on weight due to lack of nutrient absorption)

How can Medicinal Cannabis help heal Crohn’s Disease?

Many conventional Crohn’s drugs seek to reduce inflammation and suppress the immune system, which is continually attacking the gut.

Researchers think that this is where cannabis can help. Compounds in the herb called cannabinoids have immunomodulatory effects. They prevent the immune system from releasing pro-inflammatory proteins and trigger anti-inflammatory compounds instead.
