    Also just want to add it doesn't stop progression so to speak it boosts immune function thereby allowing which ever bacteria that causes crohns symptoms to be put back into immune controls. The reason why ASAs work is because they stop your immune system from responding to the bacteria so in the...

    Voth says marijuana has serious toxic and long-term effects, and causes domestic and spousal violence. Best part of this article is this statement.

    My Doctors here in the US have been all the same way they have never heard of ANTI-Map therapy yet it is having interesting effects on people on it. I would attempt to find those in France that know about it, even if it means traveling a bit. I firmly believe I am MAP positive as my reaction to...

    The THC has a much better synergistic effect. Though all the Cannabinoids have an effect when operating in the human body. This being said I have not responded to your inquiries as I have been looking for the scientific journal I found that discussed MAP bacteria clusters in France. I thought it...

    Marijuana oil is more effective than vapeing. From our experiences here oil/tinctures work best. The mg dosage should be based on body weight I have figured that getting close to my body weight per day in mg doses seems to have the best effect as well. What part of France are you from? I...

    Well I was thinking about going on Anti-map honestly though I would want to get tested for it first before I started taking something I may not necessarily need. I have been off the antibiotics for 8 days now and have not had any symptoms at this point at all I haven't stopped using the MM so I...

    Hey guys thanks for all the good advice Francis I have taken your advice somewhat I started using the old Canasa I had left over from before I started using RSO. This time however I put RSO on the Canasa before I used it I figure it would work as a 1-2 punch well see. I am going to contact my...

    Barelyalive what type of cannabis oil is it? Also I sent you a private message several weeks ago and didn't hear back from you I hope you stay the course with this. I would like you to know that if the cannabis oil does not seem to be working it maybe because you have a significant bacterial...

    I see in advanced stage cancer patients extremely high Cannabinoid content is necessary for effectiveness so a strong cannabutter makes sense in that setting. In terms of Doctors helping people out illegally, I find that rather interesting, how do they make the work, where do they get the...

    Firstly I can not speak for everyone but from whom I have talked to on this forum amongst others I help find that 1. We don't smoke for disease treatment unless in the midst of a flare to mitigate the symptoms. Generally we orally ingest oils/tincture, I do not have problems the next day as long...
