The first ever study on cannabis use in Crohn’s disease came In 2011. The Israel Medical Association Journal reported findings by conducting retrospective interviews and researchers concluded:
“The results indicate that cannabis may have a positive effect on disease activity, as reflected by reduction in disease activity index and in the need for other drugs and surgery.”
Study authors also note:
“The observed beneficial effect in this study may be due to the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis, but additional effects of cannabinoids may also play a role. Cannabinoids influence gastrointestinal motility and, in particular, have an anti-diarrheal effect, as observed in mice injected with cholera toxin.”
21 of 30 participants improved “significantly” after treatment with cannabis and the need for other medication was also “significantly reduced.”
Not only it slows downs disease progression, medical marijuana is also a therapeutic treatment for a number of Crohn’s symptoms, including loss of appetite, fatigue, abdominal cramps and trouble sleeping.
