Treatment for ibs

Postby maryjane48 » Dec 11th, 2017, 8:29 pm

Patients with inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis could benefit from marijuana use, studies suggest.

University of Nottingham researchers found in 2010 that chemicals in marijuana, including THC and cannabidiol, interact with cells in the body that play an important role in gut function and immune responses. The study was published in the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics.

THC-like compounds made by the body increase the permeability of the intestines, allowing bacteria in. The plant-derived cannabinoids in marijuana block these body-cannabinoids, preventing this permeability and making the intestinal cells bond together tighter.

the only downside, and I'm not joking, is the munchies. My spouse uses it for IBS and does fine most days, but not so much on the munch out days, especially since it is the THC not the CBD

Pot = munchies = Doritos/Cheetos/cookies.

IBS + pot + munchie foods = { - relief } * 8

You do the math.

It helps with IPS as well.
I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.
