Slide background

Crohn’s disease is a debilitating condition that affects the gastrointestinal tract. Sufferers can have symptoms ranging from chronic diarrhea and stomach pain to excessive weight loss and fatigue. Though the condition is incurable, the symptoms can be treated and damage to the digestive tract can be slowed or stopped completely.

Traditional treatments for Crohn’s disease include antibiotics, immune suppression drugs, and corticosteroids. However, these can lead to dependence and can cause other problems such as osteoporosis, diabetes, glaucoma, and high blood pressure. That’s why marijuana can be one of the treatment options that help those suffering from such a disease live a fuller and healthier life.
