    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    It doesn't take all the symptoms away completely, but it does drastically lower the amount of supportive medication I need to take (zofran, painkillers, xanax, etc). It also has a cumulative effect I think, because I can see my symptoms start to ramp up on me over days if I run out. which...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    MM can help with bucketing (my friends' "fond" term for vomiting and pooping at the same time), but if it comes on sudden it may just help the cramping and pain from when you're finished :/ Sometimes I'll even have enough time to use the toilet then rush downstairs to the kitchen sink for the...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    XCType, you really can't get "street" marijuana. They don't know the strain, because it technically isn't one. It's usually a mutt, it's chosen for it's ability to get people high and because it's cheaper to produce. The experience you get will be different pretty much everytime you buy...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    White widow is a good strain as well. To the person who was asking about a more concentrated oil, I think you are talking about making an extraction which is sometimes done with butane. I can't really tell you much about it, I've just heard of it.

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    I came here for one reason, but I'm also replying to helpingmom! I've been on medical leave for more than two weeks now because I'm so sick. I use(d) high quality hybrid strains that didn't make me feel high, but calmed my body down. I vaporized. I find it too difficult to swallow anything...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    I wasn't advocating smoking, sorry if that's how it sounded. I vaporize. eating doesn't work for me, it passes through too fast. sublingual and candy helps.

    Still paying attention

    still paying attention I haven't really been writing here lately, mostly because I'm depressed and discouraged. I am reading you all though, and I wish everyone the best. I've been canceling my doctors appointments. I know I have to reschedule them, but I don't exactly have the time off to...

    Fibromyalgia support?

    I thought this might be a good place to ask this, does anyone have suggestions for a good fibro forum like this one? I know I'm not the only one here dx'd with it, so hopefully someone has a suggestion :)

    How much can possibly be in there?

    how much can possibly be in there? This is serious. Sometimes when I am sick, I can tell that everything has left the premises, but sometimes, like this morning, it doesn't seem that is the case. The thing is, and this is gross, I spent 25 minutes pooping and there a mountain in the toilet...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    Hi Kacey, When you smoke you are causing combustion which releases a lot of chemicals that you will not encounter when you vaporize or eat. When you vaporize, you are not getting the full range of cannabinoids that you do when you smoke. It's possible that's where your paranoia lies, but I...

    What's with selling moldy food?!

    I know this isn't Crohn's related but What the ?!@# is up with trying to sell rotten cucumbers on the salad bar and then making my sandwich on (mildly) moldy bread? I'm so grossed out now, I was already nauseous. ugh ugh ugh I was nearly done with my sandwich when I noticed the mold on the...

    OMG Constipation

    I'm not used to this as I get diarrhea everyday, but I've been on this carafate suspension for ulcers for a little over a week now and I can't go to the bathroom worth a damn. I get a pill sized nugget once a day with wicked straining, and I have pain on my left side, front right, and my...

    Another reason why I "can't have Crohn's"

    I made this a separate thread I'm curious about this. More than one person has said recently that Crohn's is a Jewish disease and non-Jews don't get it. As in, "well you're not Jewish so you don't have Crohn's, it's probably diverticulitis or something." (according to the doc its not...

    Stinging/Burning sensation "down there"

    I have a few uncomfortable things happening down below. First, it feels like I have cuts between vagina and anus and around my anus. Also, my anus is all swollen although I think those are hemorrhoids. And there is this crusty feeling bump above my anus. I can't see it of course, and I've...

    People just don't understand

    I was talking to one of my co-worker/friends this morning and mentioned that I'm getting a colonoscopy at the end of the month. So he starts telling me about how disgusting the golytely is (so glad I have miralax) and that going to the bathroom will be painful. So I told him, yeah I know. No...
