A flare up of Crohn’s disease is really rough.
I experience all sorts of harsh cramping and belly pain. And then there are other symptoms that are just the worst. You can get diarrhea and nausea. I have been dealing with this situation for a few years now. My doctors have been great in helping me to understand and manage my Crohn’s flares. There are so many factors to this condition that my local medicine is still trying to catch up. Recently, I added an older remedy for abdominal pain in the form of medical marijuana. Thankfully, I have access to a cannabis shop. My state legalized both medical marijuana and recreational marijuana. So while I am using the medical cannabis products under the gun of my doctor, I can just go to the legal weed store to get what I need. I don’t have to go through all of the marijuana hoops in order to get the medical cannabis that entirely helps my condition. And it’s not just the immediate pain and cramping that medical weed helps with. It’s thought that stress can also add more to the odds or frequency of my flare ups. Medical marijuana helps a great deal in that regard. It’s entirely great to be able to chew on some cannabis gummies or even smoke cannabis flower products. Somehow, just the act of doing that helps cut down on my stress. Of course the medical cannabis itself allows me to feel a whole lot less stress. All I think is that since I started using medical cannabis, I have less flares and the ones I have are not as severe. That’s better.
