Cannabis effective in IBD?

Smoking cannabis reduces symptoms in patients with Crohn’s, say experts in a newly published comment.

Writing this week in Pharmacology, the two experts from the University of Graz, Austria, reviewed the findings of a 2013 study that tested cannabis cigarettes against placebo in Crohn’s patients who had been unresponsive to previous therapies.

They endorsed the study results which found a 90% reduction in disease activity compared with placebo.
