The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation worked with a group of patients, providers, and legal experts to understand the complex issues related to medical cannabis including the evidence supporting use in the medical management of IBD along with the legal and practical considerations every patient and provider should know. Below you'll find the Foundation's position statement on medical cannabis and a link to the recently published IBD Journal article on the role of cannabis in the management of IBD.
