Treatment of Crohn’s Disease with Cannabis: an Observational StudyIn 2011, researchers in Israel published the first study evaluating the effect of cannabis on patients with Crohn’s disease. All patients stated that consuming cannabis had a positive effect, ameliorating disease activity and reducing the need for other conventional medications. The researchers hypothesized that the observed beneficial effect in this study may be due to the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis, but additional effects of cannabinoids may also play a role.
