Crohn's Disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease
The anti-inflammatory properties of medical cannabis can sometimes help reduce the severity and length of symptoms for those suffering from this disease.
Symptoms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) can include abdominal pain, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, weight loss and fever. Two-thirds to three-quarters of patients with Crohn’s disease will require surgery at some point during their lives. Medical cannabis can offer relief to patients who do not respond or are resistant to conventional IBD treatment.
