Crohn’s Disease is a chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract that can affect any part of the GI tract, from the mouth to the rectum, although it may skip certain areas of the intestine, leaving some healthy, while other parts suffer. Ulcerative Colitis is a very similar disease in the IBD group of disorders, but it only affects the colon, affecting only the innermost lining of the colon.
To know you have Crohn’s Disease, the following symptoms will be noticed.
-Abdominal pain and cramps
-Urgent need to move bowels
-The sensation of incomplete evacuation or “rectal tenesmus”
Other signs that are associated with IBD:
-Loss of appetite
-Loss of menstrual cycle in women
Sounds terrible, doesn’t it? These are painful, life-altering disorders, which is why Crohn’s Disease and Colitis are specified as qualifying conditions for medical cannabis in nearly half of all medical marijuana states.
These symptoms can be controlled somewhat through diet, but often cannabis offers some of the best relief for the most severe symptoms – cramps, nausea, loss of appetite, etc.
