Crohn's for 11 years
by: Anonymous

I have had Crohn's disease for 11 years. I KNOW it helps Crohn's disease. I can not smoke for one whole week and notice a huge difference in what I am able to eat, my nausea, my stools, my pain, and that is when I'm not high. Cannabis helps with all of these things and it does so, even when one is not high. No one can tell me different. Crohn's Disease has been added to the top of most medicinal cannabis lists in the states in which it has been legalized for medicinal purposes. There have been plenty of times when I didn't necessarily feel like getting high, but knew it would make it so I could eat and still function. If I am stuck on the pot, I have my husband bring me a bowl, and I take two hits and am off the pot in about 5 minutes or less. I have purposefully tested this and stopped smoking it for 3 months and all my symptoms were exacerbated. If you are able to find a strand, I have read that Afghani Bullrider is specifically used for Crohn's Disease and is suppposed to work wonders for all of the symptoms, however, I have yet to live somewhere that has medicinal marijuana, unfortunately...
Nothing, no drug, not asacol, pentasa, steroids, remicade, or even my imuran which I currently take, has helped me as quickly and as purely as cannabis has. And I know it's the truth for anyone else who has Crohn's. It is also the least toxic, has the least side effects, and if vaporized or eaten; does the least harm. PLEASE, give it a try and you will realize that it would make the most sense to make a pill which is medicinal, yet does not get you high, so that we can use it's medicinal effects throughout our daily lives. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!!!! :o)

Not true. Just cause you feel better while buzzed/baked, does not make it a good idea. Going by half the pothead logic on this site, it's like saying shooting heroin is good for anemia, or crack for high blood pressure. With smoking, all you're doing is adding more toxins to your GI tract, among other things. Having crohns makes us more susceptible to several other health problems, cancer for instance. If you're on any immunosuppressant(prednisone is a popular one), there's greater chances for problems. Not only will your weakened immune system be trying to fight off the usual, it'll have to deal with all the other garbage you're putting into your body. Obviously you're going to do what you want. If having crohns and a handful of other problems that tend to come with smoking anything sounds like the life you want to live, have at it I guess.

I have no idea about the medical implications of cannibas and crohns, but i know that when i am on high doses of cortisone, a small dose of cannibus helps with the anxiety, sleeplessness, moods and pain. i only use it when its really bad and in 7 years the times when i have - the bad days werent as bad. Im not a doc but i think that if they are pumping me with so many toxic drugs that make me feel terrible, then a tiny bit of one that makes me relaxed and sleep is ok.
