• Welcome to Crohn's Forum, a support group for people with all forms of IBD. While this community is not a substitute for doctor's advice and we cannot treat or diagnose, we find being able to communicate with others who have IBD is invaluable as we navigate our struggles and celebrate our successes.

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    This is why adding the oil or butter to stews, bone broths works so well. I have actually eaten and fallen asleep before any noticable effect only to feel it later when waking to use bathroom (urine). I go straight back to sleep after. Great info, Norby. Thanks! Am also using coconut oil.
