Study: Smoking Marijuana Causes Complete Remission Of Crohn’s Disease

Smoking marijuana found to halt Crohn's disease

According to a new study published by the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, smoking marijuana causes a “complete remission” of Crohn’s disease. 

The disease of the digestive tract afflicts almost one million people in North America – causing diarrhea, severe abdominal pain, vomiting, weight loss, skin rash, and arthritis.

According to researchers, 21 people with severe Crohn’s disease were given two joints a day for eight weeks – and by the end of the study, all patients were cured.

Accmag.com reports: “The standardized cannabis cigarettes” contained 23 percent THC and 0.5 percent CBD (cannabidiol). (Such marijuana is available on dispensary shelves in San Francisco, Oakland, and other cities that have regulated access to the drug.) The other ten subjects smoked placebo cigarettes containing no active cannabinoids.

Investigators reported that smoking weed caused a “complete remission” of Crohn’s Disease in five of the 11 subjects.

Another five of the eleven test subjects saw their Crohn’s Disease symptoms cut in half. Furthermore, “subjects receiving cannabis reported improved appetite and sleep, with no significant side effects.”

The study is the first placebo-controlled clinical trial to assess the consumption of cannabis for the treatment of Crohn’s, notes NORML.

All of the patients had intractable forms of the disease and did not respond to conventional treatments.

Still, the United States government claims that marijuana is as dangerous as heroin and has no medical use. U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag is waging a war on safe access to medical cannabis in the Bay Area.

    Crhon’s disease which one can get from drinking processed milk from Factory Farm dairies.

      The UN’s Nazi Codex Alimentarius; slow starvation through a nutrient-deficient diet, requires pasteurization and irradiation of milk products, as well as antibiotics and bovine growth hormone additions to cattle feed.

        Western doctors tell you to avoid fats. if the body does not have natural fats, it don’t do good.
        Factory farm, (elite) owned corporations, use Petro chemicals to grow more, increase profits. Oil bases federalizes deplete the soil of minerals and vitamins . The things the human body needs to stay well and avoid cancers and other diseases.

          They also fund and pollute these “alternative” viewpoints like tofu veganism with that no-fat nonsense.

          Fats are found in nature. Saturated included. Avocado, coconut, olives, etc. are naturally full of fat.

          The brain is made of fat and cholesterol besides water. Without replenishing the brain’s supply, it eventually withers up and dies, literally shortcircuits (Alzheimer’s).

          There is a REASON why almost all humans eat EGGS/FISH and any sort of fatty vegetable, butter, or meat every single day.

            Know a gal, was employed by big Pharma. Good looking gal. go in, rub it on the doctors, get them to prescribe her big Phrma’s pill

            The sad thing is, for lucky young people, the best paying jobs are online trolling, and real-life shilling for these filthy corporations. I’ve heard of a lot of pharmaceutical jobs, even manufacturing the drugs. They pay living or better wages and have benefits.

            Meanwhile the nasty fields like IT, retail, and foodservice (in the wrong locations) pay nothing (IT can be decent but only the right jobs- it is a total buddy system) for some of the hardest labor in the industry and have zero benefits except canning people if they speak up or speak too loud. Jobs that are virtually impossible without alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and often other drugs for weaker people.

            Any business with over 50 employees, even less, should be paying 15-20 bucks an hour, entry. If they can’t pay that much, stop hiring too many people and create real positions, hire real managers and hire real workers. Total bullsh!t. I can’t believe the number of people I’ve heard of doing 25-30 dollar-an-hour work for 8-12 bucks. No standards anymore, none. The sheeple must love it, apparently.

            Calipornia isn’t joined in the litigation to reduce prescription drug prices – Jerry Brown has mentioned expanded access to Canadian suppliers as an alternative. Check out University of California’s Big Pharma research grants and pharmaceutical patents – a Ponzi scheme equivalent to the global warming scam.

      • John C Carleton

        They also spray everything with Agent Orange.

        • Mollie Norris

          And dioxin in Agent Orange is still causing birth defects in SE Asia. We have lots to look forward to.

      crohn.s is hereditary dumbass… people are born with it

  • Ralf Yuri

    Marijuana= door to hell.
    NWO=first stage of hell.

    • Fingal Carson

      Yep, marijuana magically cures everything. Last century, they said this about Bayer HEROIN and cocaine. Magically cures everything, just use them until you have no organs left, you forget your name, and you’re dying of some disease in the hospital.

      Cocaine historically has far more proven, mentioned, and recorded potential over any of the other “illegal” drugs I know of, but I do NOT promote any drugs. That is the filth of the rulers who want the sheeple to be a bunch of useless, fat, unhealthy drug addicts.

      • john doe

        maybe it will cure your stupidity

        • Fingal Carson

          Seeing as you write like a prepubescent child, it has obviously done wonders for your IQ. That’s sarcasm, by the way.

          Marijuana = greatest tool for the sheeple besides heroin, gluten (another opiate), sugar and pharmas. Keep the sheeple stupid and worthless. No alcohol. No tobacco. None of the drugs that built our advanced society. Only the ones that encourage people to sit on their ass, sulk, and accomplish absolutely nothing with their lives.

          Hahaha, so funny, right?

  • Mollie Norris

    Awesome news for Chrohns patients – it’s a very painful, debilitating disease.

    • Ralf Yuri

      Bingo!!! We will heal 100 patients and manufacture 100 million of retarded and sick potheads.
      Satan’s servants are so smart.

      • Mollie Norris

        It didn’t happen when baby boomers’ grandparents used it, as well as opium and cocaine, legally. CBD is medicine; it’s not intoxicating.

        • http://torontoist.com/2007/11/vintage_toronto_39/ Sandra Hetherington

          Not just CBD…THC..THCA…CBDA…CBV…CBVA (and there are so many more) are all components of Cannabis with healing properties meant to be used for different ailments. The research coming out now is amazing, although smoking it isn’t the best way to utilize the medicine.

      • Beth Governor Barnes

        Educate yourself Ralf Yuri. Cannabis oil has with memory in older adults. It is a plant mentioned in the Bible. It is much better than the side effects of narcotics. Obviously, you have never had or seen someone is distress from this disease.

        • Ralf Yuri

          Mentioned in Bible?in your bible?
          Satan is mentioned in Bible, and I don’t like satan.
          Considering the Millions of lives that this stinking herb destroyed, it should be extinguished.

          Stop fabricating diseases to glorify marijuana.

          • john doe

            i hope that you are diagnosed with crohn.s and have to have about all of your large intestines removed and about 10 feet of your small intestine removed and then we will see how fabricated this disease is!

          • Ralf Yuri

            Since I do not have to worry about diseases, be happy with yours, he-he.

          • Kellie Merry

            grow a set Ralf.

          • George Shiflett

            Satan is a Myth created by the kings and Bishops in the 2nd century BC to try and control the people by saying anything a person did bad was caused by Satan , Satan was used to control the masses and still is used by Christians for the same thing and to explain away bad behavior

          • Ralf Yuri

            Now you have left me speechless, I thought satan was the product of the CIA.

          • http://torontoist.com/2007/11/vintage_toronto_39/ Sandra Hetherington

            Your ignorance is beyond belief Ralf! Did you know we have cannabinoid receptors in our body that prove it is meant to be a medicine for us. Also Crohn’s is NOT a fabricated disease! Read up on all the advancements in Cannabis research. Thousands of people die every year from pharmaceuticals, and there has been not one death from Cannabis! On the contrary, researchers are finding that different types of Cannabis heal different diseases!

          • Ralf Yuri

            This marijuana demarcation campaign has nothing to do with healing, it has to do with destroying millions of young people around the world.
            In my neighborhood I do not know anyone with one of these weird diseases,
            but I know hundreds of young people who are already brainless and
            uncharted from using this stinking junk called cannabis.
            Now do you want me to sacrifice millions of healthy young people for an herb that supposedly heals a few dozen?

          • http://torontoist.com/2007/11/vintage_toronto_39/ Sandra Hetherington

            “A few dozen”??? I think you need to look up Crohn’s disease and learn a few facts…. You have no idea what you’re talking about! http://www.healthline.com/health/crohns-disease/facts-statistics-infographic

          • Ralf Yuri

            Supposedly about 1.4 million Americans have Crohn’s diseas…..
            Since they eat junk and industrial poison, it’s no wonder they are biologically rotten.

          • http://torontoist.com/2007/11/vintage_toronto_39/ Sandra Hetherington

            I agree that much of the “food” sold today is junk, but the point of the conversation is that Cannabis can help with the disease. Most diseases start with inflammation of some sort and Cannabis (not smoked) relieves this. A few years from now when this info becomes common knowledge so many people will find relief…without the stigma that some perpetuate. It really is medicine! ps….I grow almost all of my own food and I’m pretty healthy!

      • Marti Masters

        Most of the CEO’s today were the potheads of yesterday. Chew on that, Ralf.

        • Ralf Yuri

          You’re right.
          Many of them are working for george soros, bill gates, rotschilds, zuckerberg, etc. All legitimate servants of satan.

    How is this news, the study is OLD!

  • Joe Sammons

    So glad! I can’t wait, currently taking Accutane and at threat for this damn disease….I hope I don’t get it!

  • JOSEPH

    Crohns is a serious condition. I’ve had 4 surgeries removing and repairing my small bowell. Cannabis does help me function. Good for pain as well as increases my appetite and sooths inflammation. Ivery been on lots of different medications with awful side effects and nothing really works completely. Overall cannabis does improve my quality of life. I work full time, just married, bought a house, have great credit all while medicating with cannabis
