Medicinal Cannabis for Ulcerative Colitis

Fri, April 09, 2021 8:28 PM

Hi there. I was diagnosed in 2018 with ulcerative colitis. I have tried Mesalamine and Prednisone with either no relief or very negative complications. I am hesitant to try any immune suppressant drugs. I found out my state approves medicinal cannabis for IBD. Has anyone tried before or have any experiences with it? I have done some research and found there is evidence it helps with inflammation so I'm in the process of being in the program. CBD and CBG oils have been helping but I am still
having issues of the horrible flare I have now. Any feedback appreciated! Thanks!

My 22 y.o. has used CBD oils (w/ THC, the 1:1 dose) when he feels his worst. He says it helps him sleep and seems to ease the inflammation some. Unfortunately, he hasn't really been in full remission since being diagnosed, so I can't compare it to that state. He still has symptoms, I think the oils just make them less severe.
