Hi, My name is Harry. I have been living with UC for about 7 years now. I, like many of you, have been unsatisfied with the treatments of my IBD. While the current treatments do "help", we can all agree that life after IBD will never be the same as life before. Not to mention the side effects of the powerful drugs we're prescribed. I have tried dietary changes, colostrum therapy (orally and through the other end), fish oil, holistic therapy, and doctor prescribed medications.I am not a doctor. I would however encourage you all to present this information to you doctors so we can fight to end this once and for all!I am proposing that IBD is caused by a cannabinoid deficiency. People suffering from IBD have more GB1 and GB2 receptors than normal. Including an occurrence of GB receptors in the colon. In your body cannabinoids are produced to certain degree naturally, bacteria also play a role in cannabinoid production (which would explain why probiotics help and why they think that the cause is related to a bacteria in the colon, and why antibiotics sometimes set off a flare) The information below explains it in great detail the connections.So, a larger amount of cannabinoid receptors, with the same amount of natural production of cannabinoids happening in our bodies as someone who does not have IBD would mean a smaller percentage of these receptors are being stimulated. In theory causing many of the same symptoms in the GB1 knockout mice which are used in a lot of the studies I am presenting below.The prevalence of IBD started in the 1920's and 30's around the same time yellow journalism began the reefer madness that we still suffer from in America. Before this many medicines in the country were made from hemp and cannabis.On one note to the 2005 study done in the UK. They studied a JWH synthetic cannabinoid which is chemically very different from cannabis and has been marketed in the USA as a "legal high". Many states are seeking to get this banned and the side effects are unknown and do not simulate the very complex iterations between THC and other cannabinoids and the iterations that THC and the other spectrum of cannabinoids which also stimulate your GB2 receptors. Which accounts for the inconclusive results.My proposal for an effective therapy would be a combination of vaporization and baked good using cannabis butter. I have found this works most effectively for me, and through my research found that others who choose this therapy. Continuing this therapy through remissions I have found also prevents flare ups.
