The study, published in the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology , found 21 people with Crohn’s disease. Half of them received cigarettes without active cannabinoids and the other half received regular smoking-related compounds.
The compounds contained about 23% THC and 0.5% CBD.
Forty-five percent of people who smoked two joints a day for eight weeks experienced a complete remission of their Crohn’s disease.
The other six out of eleven reported that their symptoms were halved and that they were able to sleep and eat much easier. The clinical trial data states that “volunteers who received cannabis reported improved appetite and sleep without significant side effects.”
This is more information that could be expected, further proving the medicinal value of cannabis, which many already know.
Please share this with anyone who has ever been skeptical of the medicinal value of cannabis. It’s amazing that these were not even edible goods that are typically used in studies of this kind, but that patients let them smoke.
