How Medical Marijuana Can Help Crohn's Disease
There is no cure for Crohn’s disease, but there are treatment options that can help manage their symptoms such as medical marijuana.
The key to medical marijuana’s effectiveness for treating Crohn’s disease lies in its cannabinoids, which interact with receptors in the gut. One cannabinoid in particular, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is known to reduce inflammation throughout the body, including in the gut. Reducing inflammation in this area of the body is key to controlling symptoms of Crohn’s disease. Cannabis can also help relieve symptoms like nausea and pain.
