On October 7, 2015 the Illinois Medical Cannabis Advisory Board voted to recommended IBS be a qualifying condition for the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis program. As a result, IBS and 7 other conditions are pending approval by the Governor and the Illinois Director of Public Health.

That's great news. Looks like we are headed in right direction in my opinion.

Now, if we could AT LEAST be able to receive the hemp cbd extract in all countries for now, let alone grow it EVERYWHERE for sure. Too many regulations grouping it with marijuana in the laws, when it is non-psychoactive.

1/04/18: Pain's my main problem. IBS-D prone, but not with methylcellulose soluble non-gassy caplets still, 2 before anything eaten.  Also, 10C water/day (Have to if taking fiber supplement and soluble foods). Frequent, small and well chewed meals. No more salads, seeds or peel, whole grains, raw vegetables STILL. Have used in the past antispasmotics, low dose tricyclic anti-depressent (for ibs and inflammation)/both VERY drying even at low amounts and disorienting, CBD oil and IBgard's encapsulated peppermint (works better than older type enteric peppermint). Have occasional inflammation in illium at end of small intestine, but it was not crohns. Activated charcoal when needed for flatulence, simethicone only works on upper stomach area for upper gas (burping) right away btw, not flatulence at end of g.i. track. Tried Kratom, good but itchy and didn't prevent a flare up from eating a wrong foods. Raising dosage didn't kick down inflammation. Now back to being certified for (legally available here) medical high CBD Cannabis/Marijuana RSO (thick oil form), more expensive. I needed more anti-inflammitory help from the THC in regular cannabis oil, instead of just CBD oil.
