    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    Those results are underwhelming to say the least. The treatment group did not show statistically significant improvement on their primary outcome measure and had a lot of people drop out due to adverse effects. Sounds like that particular formulation has a ways to go before market.

    Dabbling vs. all-in for diets?

    So I've had numerous people telling me to try various diet options including SCD and paleo, but am just not sure I have the dedication to really stick with it. Are there benefits to making some changes along these lines without committing to the whole system? It seems like absolute adherence...

    Freaked out facing reality
