Medical Marijuana for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

People with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have the option of treatment with medical cannabis. IBD can take on two forms, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, which are chronic disorders involving inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. Ulcerative colitis involves the digestive tract and causes both ulcers and inflammation, affecting the lining of the rectum and large intestine. On the other hand, Crohn’s Disease affects any part of the gastrointestinal tract, from the mouth to the anus. 

Inflammatory bowel disease may affect people at different stages of their life. Most patients are diagnosed with IBD before the age of 30. Still, others can be affected later in life, from the age of 50 to 60, where they start suffering from the symptoms of IBD. 

Medical cannabis, particularly Sativa strains, have been found to treat Crohn’s Disease. Medical marijuana for IBD can be useful when managing symptoms such as abdominal pain, joint pain, cramping, diarrhea, poor appetite, weight loss, bloating, bloody stools, fever, and nausea. Symptoms of IBD can vary from patient to patient. In some instances, patients will have mild cases of IBD and experience a period of remission, while others may have severe symptoms that can be debilitating, creating an obstruction to their daily routine.

While there is no cure for IBD, some studies have shown that cannabis for IBD can stimulate the patient’s appetite and improve the quality of life for those with inflammatory bowel disease.

As an IBD patient in Illinois, you are a qualifying candidate to apply for a medical marijuana card. When you hold a medical cannabis card, you may possess cannabis for IBD symptoms from any Illinois medical dispensary.
