In Crohn's, the lining of the gastrointestinal walls becomes damaged and too porous, allowing semi-digested food particles and foreign molecules, such as proteins and toxins entry into surrounding membranes, tissues and into the blood.  In response to these deviant substances, an alarm is triggered; there is an invasion of microbes with bad intentions.  The immune system naturally responds similarly with symptoms comparable to a bout of food poisoning.

What Medical Professional Say about MMJ & Crohn's   

The results were particularly telling; according to the researchers, a positive clinical response was found in 10 of 11 Crohn's patients that used Medical Cannabis daily..


"Five of the 11 subjects achieved total remission of their Crohn's. Patients reported greater appetites and better sleep patterns. People with severe cases of Crohn's often defecate, as much as 20 times per day, and this can obviously disturb sleep. Only four of the 10 placebo subjects reported any improvements and these were minimal."  - Timna Naftali, MD (paraphrase)

"Nothing is more scary than the first fart after Diarrhea."

"These findings, argued the researchers, demonstrate how THC-rich cannabis produced significant clinical, steroid-free benefits patients with active Crohn's disease, compared with placebo, without side effects."-  Dr. Naftali


“It’s great because I can finally do stuff that I wasn’t able to a long time ago, like I can finally ride my bike after three or four years, shovel snow, hike mountains and it’s just amazing, It’s had a larger positive effect on me than any other pharmaceuticals have, and the pharmaceuticals, all they did was make it worse.” - Coltyn, Crohn's Patient
