    I can attest this is true.  I have Crohn's Colitis and also use cannabis to treat its symptoms.  It seems to help avoid flare-ups, and with adjustments to diet you can live an almost normal life.
    Once the medical cannabis exemption law went into effect in Oakland, California in 1996 where I lived, I was able to ween myself off prednisone, asacol, and sulfasalazine.   I have yet to have a big flare-up since.   A little pot each day staves it off...  It seems to calm the plexus, but not sacrifice motility.  It may also decrease inflammation down there.

    I am a long term patient and I know what I know.  Cannabis medicine helps this condition, and many others too.
