Crohn’s Disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that results in abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss and malnutrition. This disease is not uniform amongst patients; it affects different areas of the digestive tract from person-to-person and has varying degrees of pain.
There is no cure yet, but it can sometimes move into remission where a person will have no symptoms. Crohn’s Disease is managed by a particular diet as well as a healthy lifestyle. However, when inflamed it is painful and debilitating. Anti-inflammatory drugs or immune system suppressors are the major forms of management, but many now look to cannabis.
Cannabis has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, which can reduce pain and increase comfort for those suffering from this disease. Additionally, cannabis has antioxidant compounds to help reduce cellular stress caused by chronic inflammation and even generate healing. As all cannabis has these properties, most strains will provide some relief. Quantum Kush is one of our Crohn’s Disease specific options, but we are regularly adding more strains to our mail-order marijuana service.
