Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that affects the lining of the gastrointestinal tract. The symptoms of this disease can include abdominal pain, fatigue, diarrhea, intense weight loss, anemia, and soreness in the muscles and joints. However, it is possible that these symptoms can be alleviated by cannabis, and can be cured.
Crohn’s Disease Studies
Studies and experimental evidence show that the molecule, endocannabinoids, which is found in cannabis plants plays a significant role in limiting intestinal inflammation. The research also shows that people who had bowel problems, such as Crohns’s has higher levels of cannabinoid receptors.
This means that cannabis can trigger the receptors in the body that are needed to cure or alleviate Crohn’s Disease and it’s symptoms.
