marijuana and chrons disease
hi i was wondering if anybody '''knows anybody''' who has used cannabis for medicinal purposes for chron's disease, i haven't myself and have been on the tablets since i was 19, at a party when i was at get together when i was roughly 30 and a joint was being passed around. I suffered from all usual problems )nausea, uneasiness around people, pain, tenderness, and just miserable
anyway the get together lol. i smoked some of the joint and noticed over the next few hours i felt quite well as in no pain, no nausea and the rest.. On telling my friends of the get together (who happened to be hippes we met on holiday) that my pains had gone after i had smoked the cannabis they said ''oh we know that already, cannabis has been used for hundreds of years as an inflamatory medicine mostly in tribes'' i was quite intrigued as its a flamatory disease... so before me and my husband left, our friend allison assured me to take enough for 1 ciggarette and said ''dont waste it, when your pains get really bad, use it then, and see what happens'' sure enough over the next few weeks it stared to play up again and got so bad my husband was waiting on me hand and foot.. he made the ciggarette and i was fine....it was such a relief. coincidence ??? i dont know.
I haven't wanted to smoke it ever since that day and i am 45 now, and i really dont know if that was a genuine good medicine for our condition. i dont look at cannabis as a 'druggie' drug like heroin or cocaine (although they are also used medicinally) i simply see it as a harmless plant that may be able to give chron's sufferers a long deserved rest
can anyone add to this or give me more information on
cannabis for chron's disease
