Within six months, I was completely healed of Crohn's Disease.”  Blogger

Cannabinoids such as THC and CBD block spinal, peripheral and gastrointestinal processes that cause pain.  Animal trials reveal that cannabinoids also work well in controlling heartburn or reflux disease.

How Medical Cannabis cured my Gastrointestinal Disease

"After 11 months of diarrhea and extreme stomach pain, I diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. I was on steroids and cortisone for several months, but the side effects were killing me and my colon was still swollen. My life was shit.  I felt like I was rotting from the inside out. 

Accompanying the diarrhea were horrible sores on my legs and elbows (Erythema Nodosum) and swelling to the point I could hardly move.  The pain got so bad that I couldn't think straight or sleep more than half an hour without waking up.  But my anger and suffering made me determined to beat this hellish disease.  I began to try different kinds of Medical Marijuana, and there was relief with every kind of pot I tried.  The best medicine turned out to be pot that is high in CBD (Cannabidiol) without so much THC (the psychoactive ingredient).  I experienced no bad side effects with Cannabis Meds, none. Just like that, I got my life back and for seven years now, I've been completely healed of Crohn's Disease.”  MMJ Patient / Alchemist

“I made the impossible possible and cured an incurable disease with dietary cannabis!” - MMJ Patient
