    Remicade anti-TNF therapy has not yielded expected declines in hospitalisation and intestinal resection rates in inflammatory bowel diseases

    This research doesn’t surprise me at all. Biologics/immunosuppressants all made me 1000x worse, and my GI doctor basically blamed it on me saying I was probably smoking cigarettes, weed, or drinking alcohol and that was what caused them not to work. I was in fact doing none of those things and...

    Unusual path to success

    Brutale— as far as cannabis, did you smoke, eat edibles? For me smoking does nothing positive for Crohn’s, but ingesting very high doses of oil does. I think most people would have a hard time with the dose i take but I had to work up to it. 1000-1500mg of thc and an equal amount of cbd...

    Unusual path to success

    Trt and cannabis oil have put me in and held me in remission. The oil handles the inflammation and the trt seems to almost eliminate all the other symptoms. Here’s the study I found that led me to trt. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/9692696/

    Haven’t been here in a while, gotten control of my disease with cannabis oil and testosterone injections

    I was diagnosed around 5 years ago. Upon initial diagnosis I was put on prednisone and sulfasalazine. Then switched to 6-mp, then was supposed to be put on humira. Upon investigating humira, I decided I was done with my GI doc and went a quest for remission through my own research and trial and...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    I'm not sure why ppl try so hard to steer away from thc...I find high thc levels combined with cbd actually help me the most. Taking away thc is taking away the best part of the medicine...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    High doses of thc and cbd together (they work synergistically) are actually more effective for inflammation than just cbd...I feel most mmj studies are designed to cast the plant in a negative light. I'd like to see a study where they actually test potent oils on patients. So ridiculous that...

    The da Vinci ascent vaporizer is the best I've ever used for dry erb as far as portables go. Volcanos are awesome but are way too expensive...just my 2 cents

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    In my personal experience the more I use the more it helps...I've found that medicating 3x a day seems to keep me symptom free...twice a day would prob do it but i have a floating shoulder that hurts pretty much constantly and it helps with that also...I would say it's probably different from...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    I'm not a medical professional and can't tell you what remicade could potentially interact with...but in my opinion (which is not professional nor is it meant to be advice) the cannabinoids would help, but remicade does weaken the immune system and I believe makes u more susceptible to infection...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    I would say twice a day, but I'm only basing this on the fact that you said that you have severe crohn's and you def can't take too much CBD...they prob aren't cheap so maybe experiment and see what dosage seems to help the most, I know if I could get em I would much on em like candy all day...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    Cannabis helps me tremendously, stops bleeding, makes for smoother BM's, helps stomach pain and nausea, helps with inflammation in and out of the gut (I have RA as well), and helps with depression/general malaise. I'm not sure how it works in Michigan, but I'm sure a google search would turn up...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    I am starting to meet more and more people that need cannabis based meds that I am sure would change their lives. I am beginning to feel an obligation based on the bit of knowledge that I have gained by extensive reading and trial and error that I have to help these people. The more I use it and...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    Oh gosh there is a lot going on here haha...the cannabinoids in marijuana are activated by a certain level of heat. They are also destroyed with too much heat. Ok there are various ways to make tea with marijuana but I haven't found this to be all that easy or worth while. Another thing about...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    For me personally it has only ever helped my symptoms. I will say though that if you were smoking joints, perhaps they were rolled with tobacco/rice/other carcinogen that could have messed you up? I really think joints are not ideal for medicating, at least not for crohn's imo. I believe you are...

    Cannabinoids in Breast Milk

    I found this quite interesting as I've heard that breast milk could be good for crohn's and I wonder if breast milk vs. formula could have any bearing on a potential crohn's diagnosis later in life...now they find naturally occurring cannabinoids in breast milk too...
