Crohn’s Disease is a chronic inflammatory process which can involve the entire intestinal tract which penetrates all layers of the gut wall. It is in the same family of disease called Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD)- separate and not to be confused with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)- which also includes Ulcerative Colitis. Over 1 million people in the US suffer from Crohn’s Disease. It is most common in women. Crohn’s disease is exacerbated by “leaky gut syndrome” where the epithelial cells lose their tight binding and allow offensive bacteria and other pro-inflammatory chemicals to get into the lining and blood which sets up a difficult and painful long term effect.
Over one-third of patients cannot get relief from traditional medicines no matter how expensive and difficult the treatments. This causes more than 50% of all patients to seek alternative treatments. Cannabinoids/Hemp as a full spectrum combination “Entourage Effect” have been shown to dramatically help Chrohn’s patients. Sunhealth Therapeutics has developed a formula called Crohncare 10 comprised of hemp derived cannabinoids and terpenes (without THC) to help support the condition and improve the quality of life.
