Advertisement Can try asking doctor for Sativex maybe???? for IBS and prevent cancers "in general" at the same time as a plus.


Sativex IS more balanced pharmaceutical(ized) marijuana in the UK than Marinol in the U.S. which is just THC that is used for cancer. Sativex still doesn't ideally have all the other important cannabinoids spectrum yet to be further studied (as much as CBD and THC) and needed for whole plant natural balance.


Higher CBD curbs psychoactivity of THC in natural plant marijuana like higher in CBD ACDC strain that is easier to find unfortunately than the better even higher CBD (which is ideal) Charlotte's Web strain (that is being used with seizures in epilepsy and muscle spasms in MS) that can both be used presently if in an accepting medical of legalized marijuana U.S. state. Otherwise use automatically legal <.3% thc CBD oil extracted from hemp. See over the counter meds info on this IBS website.

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.

I want to try high-CBD resin/oil/whatever for my intractable abdominal pain (probable IBS + possible adhesions).  Can anyone recommend a site/brand/NYC doctor/<other source>.  Please message me if your post gets mangled/censored - many thanks.
