IBS

Patients suffering from gastrointestinal disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), have experienced relief with medical marijuana. Research has shown that when medical marijuana interacts with the endogenous cannabinoid receptors in the digestive tract, it can calm spasms, relieve pain, and improve motility. 23 Cannabinoids have also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and act as immune system modulators by either enhancing or suppressing immune response. 24
