Some patients with Crohn's recommend medicinal for cramps, back pain, lack of appetite, joint pain, headaches and more. Does anyone have any experiences? If so, from what strand?

@Kristina_M I am sorry you have not received any responses to your question. Many members in the Cancer groups have stated that they have had good results from the use of marijuana for pain, and there are also some members discussing research that says it can help cure the symptoms.
I am tagging some members diagnosed with IBD to hopefully lend some input on their stories/experiences or for them to gain information as well.

I went for sativa-biased hybrids mostly. Like 60-40 ratio, but I can't honestly say I noticed a lot of difference in the effectiveness of any strain over another in terms of cramping & gas. My preference was mostly due to wanting a clear head to be able to work. Indicas make me more groggy than sativas. In general, Sativas = more head activity, thus tend to trigger more anxiety & paranoia, while Indicas = more body relaxation.

@Userlevel6 thank you! I definitely do not need anymore anxiety than I already have so I definitely need to consider an indica

@Userlevel6 What symptoms did you find the use of marijuana helped with? was it only certain symptoms? Was it all gut related symptoms?
