Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Cannabis and Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Promising Remedy


Cannabis and Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Promising Remedy


Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), encompassing conditions like Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, has been a longstanding challenge in the medical world. It is characterized by chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, leading to symptoms such as abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, and malnutrition. Traditional treatments have included a range of anti-inflammatory drugs, immune system suppressors, and surgery. However, a promising remedy is emerging: cannabis. Recent studies have suggested that cannabis may offer significant relief for IBD sufferers.

The Science Behind Cannabis and IBD

Cannabis contains compounds known as cannabinoids, with the two most studied being tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). These compounds interact with the body's endocannabinoid system, which plays a crucial role in regulating gut function and immune response.

THC and CBD: Key Players

  • THC: Known for its psychoactive properties, THC has also been found to help reduce pain and nausea, and stimulate appetite – crucial benefits for IBD patients.
  • CBD: Unlike THC, CBD does not produce a “high.” It is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and has been found to help reduce gut inflammation and alleviate symptoms of IBD.

Clinical Studies and Evidence

A number of studies have indicated that cannabis can be beneficial for IBD patients:

  1. Symptom Relief: Research has shown that IBD patients using cannabis reported significant improvements in symptoms like abdominal pain, cramps, and diarrhea.
  2. Reduced Reliance on Traditional Medications: Some patients have been able to reduce or even stop their conventional IBD medications when using cannabis.
  3. Quality of Life: Many patients have reported an overall improvement in their quality of life, including better sleep and reduced anxiety.

The Legal and Medical Landscape

The legalization of medical marijuana in various regions has opened the door for more extensive research and access for patients. However, it is crucial for patients to consult with their healthcare providers before starting any cannabis-based treatment.

Challenges and Considerations

While promising, cannabis treatment for IBD is not without its challenges:

  • Lack of Standardization: Every person is different and its hard
  • Limited Research: More extensive clinical trials are required to fully understand the long-term effects and potential risks.


Cannabis presents a promising, albeit still emerging, treatment option for IBD. As research continues to evolve, it could become a mainstay in the management of this challenging condition. Patients interested in exploring cannabis as a treatment should engage in open, informed discussions with their healthcare providers to weigh the benefits and risks based on their individual health needs.
