    Anyone else here with Crohn's? Just started, but I'm eager to see if it helps at all. On a side note, is my doctor going to be able to notice whether or not I'm vaping? Still got an unknown amount of time until my state's medical program is up and running, so I'd rather not have anyone know.

    Ulcerative Colitis here. Vaping helps reduce symptoms and gut spasms for me. I like that it also eases the joint aches I get during flare ups as well as frequency of bowel movements. Tincture of cannabis also really helps. Good meds are great also for the ability to fight off the anxiety/depression that seems to occur with chronic diseases.

    I'm sorry that you have Crohns, IBD can suck. At least we were blessed with an awesome medicine like cannabis to help us get by.

    Yeah, every little bit helps. BTW, you ever try making tincture with ABV instead?

    I have not used ABV instead of grade A buds as there are more actives in 'unspent' medicine. However, I have heard that there can be some decent effects from ABV.

    If you click on the link in my sig below I made a blog post about making tinctures :) I hope this can assist you in your journey to wellness Trogdor.

    Is there anyone still on here who uses mmj to deal with Crohn's disease.

    Iv had Crohn's for nearly 20 years now. One resection. Bucket loads of medication and years spent in pain.

    Currently quitting tobacco joints in favour of dabs and vapes.

    Just loooking for support/advice from fellow crohnies.

    Cheers all
