CBD rich strains are great medicine for IBS and IBD. CBD makes cannabis better medicine and protects against the negative effects of THC. Check out my post ‘What’s in your cannabis’ for more information on how CBD protects you from these negative effects.
Project CBD has lots of information on high CBD strains. Below is a patient testimonial from their site discussing the benefits of CBD rich sour tsunami strain for her irritable bowel syndrome:
“I am a IBD & IBS patient that has been doing the high cbd sour tsunami hemp oil treatment now since march 4th along with my other diet and supplement regiment. Within a few days great relief to spasms, pain, bleeding and bowel incontinence had been seen. Now up to full dosage and a few weeks into treatment I have much greater relief. Down to one Bm a day from 10-20, and stools are now formed and solid. I have fully adjusted to med and now have energy during day, more stamina, and sleep unbelievably well at night. Some nights I can get 8-10 hrs straight of real REM sleep which has helped healing tremendously. The other effects worth noting are the emotional effects. The oil also keeps any stress and anxiety so common with IBD and IBS under control better than any other med out there and totally safe. The high cbd medicine makes it possible to have great relief, healing and still function during the day with no restrictive effects. I can now leave my bathroom and house and get things done and feel human again! So far I can’t say enough about the effectiveness of this treatment, I still have a few weeks to go. I will report back with new info………”
