Clients often ask us about our opinions regarding cannabis oil for chrons disease. Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It causes inflammation of the digestive tract, leading to abdominal pain, severe diarrhoea, fatigue, weight loss and malnutrition. Different people get inflammation caused by Crohn’s disease in other digestive tract areas. This often spreads deep into the layers of affected bowel tissue, making the disease both painful and debilitating. It can lead to life-threatening complications. There is no known cure for Crohn’s disease, but it can be managed with appropriate therapies.

Living with a chronic illness can be stressful and overwhelming. We can provide you with information and resources to help you manage Crohn’s disease’s physical and emotional symptoms.
How Can Cannabis Oil Benefit Crohn’s Disease?
Through cannabis research, scientists are learning how cannabinoids may be a less damaging way to treat Crohn’s disease. The endocannabinoid system has two primary receptors, CB1 and CB2. CB2 receptors are found in the immune system and the hematopoietic system, including bone marrow, lymph nodes, the spleen, and the thymus. They regulate the inflammatory process by controlling the release of cytokines produced by the immune cells, which is integral to Crohn’s disease. Activating these receptors results in pain relief and anti-inflammatory effects.
