Research Says Smoking Marijuana Causes Complete Crohn’s Disease Remission In 45% Of Patients

Marijuana, Cannabis loading...

Marijuana is arguably one of the most controversial drugs in today’s day and age.

In the United States, according to the Controlled Substance Act:

“[W]hen it comes to a drug that is currently listed in schedule I, if it is undisputed that such drug has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States and a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision, and it is further undisputed that the drug has at least some potential for abuse sufficient to warrant control under the CSA, the drug must remain in schedule I”

Is Marijuana Even Medically Beneficial? 

Marijuana is listed as a Schedule I drug under the belief that it has no proven medicinal benefits, and yet, with the continuous rise of scientific research supporting the powerful affect it has on a number of medical conditions and the lack of evidence that it is actually harmful, the foundation for this political stance on marijuana is becoming more and more unsubstantiated. 

The fight for legalizing marijuana nationwide for medicinal purposes is ongoing, but scientific research for the legitimate effectiveness of this drug is continuously on the rise and this recent study is further proving that. 

According to this recent research study, cannabis (marijuana) has shown to have the ability to cause Crohn’s Disease to enter into remission in 45% of patients.

45% of Crohn’s Patients in Remission Due to Cannabis Treatment

This study took 21 individuals who were suffering with Crohn’s Disease and gave half of them cigarettes without cannabinoids (placebos) and the other half joints to smoke. 45% of the people who were given joints (the joints contained 25% THC and 0.5% CBD) went into complete remission after 8 weeks of daily smoking the joints. The remainder of the group who didn’t enter remission reported feeling about 50% better than normal and that they were able to eat better and sleep easier without so much pain.

The study reported, “Subjects receiving cannabis reported improved appetite and sleep, with no significant side effects.”
