The Crohn's Charity Service Foundation to host Florida United Cannabis Forum

KEYNOTE: DR. Kelly King

Join us, along with Florida’s top Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers to share and learn about the innovations in medical cannabis for Chron’s Disease.


A recent report revealed that smoking weed caused a “complete remission” of Crohn’s Disease in five of the 11 subjects. Another five of the eleven test subjects saw their Crohn’s Disease symptoms cut in half. Furthermore, “subjects receiving cannabis reported improved appetite and sleep, with no significant side effects.”

This was the first-ever placebo-controlled trial of the drug to treat Crohn’s Disease, also known as inflammatory bowel disease.

The disease of the digestive tract afflicts 400,000 – 600,000 people in North America alone causing abdominal pain, diarrhea (which can be bloody), severe vomiting, weight loss, as well as secondary skin rashes, arthritis, inflammation of the eye, tiredness, and lack of concentration.

However, it was discovered that smoking cannabis caused a “complete remission” of Crohn’s disease compared to placebo in half the patients who lit up for eight weeks, according to clinical trial data to be published the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.

Learn more January 7th as Dr. King takes us inside the healing properties of Marijuana and its effectiveness for treatment of a range of conditions, from bowel disease, pain and nausea to mental disorders such as schizophrenia and post-traumatic stress disorder.
