I’m not privy to the horrific-sounding IBD [Inflammatory Bowel Disease], but it turns out it’s just another thing our lovely lady Mrs. Ganja cures. So says NORML at least. Sales of Taco Bell’s Bean Burrito just increased exponentially, and more news after the jump.
According to the survey data to be published in the European Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology (every week I soooo look forward to getting that popular periodical in my mailbox, and every week the skateboarding kids next door to me always steal it!*) IBD is synonymous with toking up because of the effects it can alleviate; aside from the usual things it alleviates: boredom, malaise, ambition, overreactions etc. The authors concluded:
‘Cannabis use is common amongst patients with IBD for symptom relief, particularly amongst those with a history of abdominal surgery, chronic abdominal pain and/or a low quality of life index. The therapeutic benefits of cannabinoid derivatives in IBD may warrant further exploration.’
According to the US government website clinicaltrials.gov, investigators at the Meir University Center in Israel are presently conducting a double blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial to evaluate the effect of cannabis inhalation on patients with IBD.
Let me boil it down for you: does your tummy hurt? Are you taking a painful crap multiple times a day? Does your lower intestine resemble Sigourney Weaver on the Aliens set? Then smoke some grass. You’ll feel better. All Nobel Prizes from my conclusions should be emailed to HMJ 🙂 Also, you can skip the below video about IBD or Crohn’s Disease; it’s fuckin’ gross.
