How Does Medical Marijuana help with Crohn’s Disease?

Significant enhancements in their condition have been reported by individuals with Crohn’s disease who utilize medical marijuana. In the state of Georgia, where medical marijuana holds legal status, patients have expressed notable reductions in their suffering since its legalization. Cannabinoids found within cannabis have displayed diverse mechanisms for alleviating gastrointestinal distress. Furthermore, individuals afflicted by Crohn’s disease have indicated an increase in their appetite.

Throughout history, cannabis has been employed as a traditional medicine, with the digestive system being just one of the many systems historically benefiting from its use. Cannabinoids, acting as external supplements, are believed to underlie the beneficial effects of the plant by intervening in various metabolic processes.

Preclinical studies have observed heightened immune activity linked to gastric inflammation in cases of cannabinoid receptor loss, cannabinoid receptor antagonists (blockers), and reduced endocannabinoid levels. This lends support to the hypothesis that cannabis might hold advantages for individuals with Crohn’s Disease.

The endocannabinoid system, comprised of cannabinoids, their receptors, and metabolic enzymes, influences the gut microbiota, immune cells, and functional epithelium. Collectively, these components work to mitigate gastrointestinal inflammation. Several independent trials have showcased promising outcomes in the treatment of Crohn’s disease through medical cannabis.
