Crohn’s disease patients may be able to reduce the risk of cancer with the use of medicinal cannabis

In a study conducted by Atlanta VA Medical Center in Decatur on patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (UC), cannabis use was associated with a lower risk of developing colorectal cancer, anemia and hospitalisation. Among patients with Crohn’s disease, the prevalence of colorectal cancer was 4 times higher among non-users than among cannabis users. The average hospital stay was also shorter (4.2 vs. 5.0 days) with lower hospital costs among cannabis users. In patients with UC, cannabis users experienced a higher incidence of fluid and electrolyte disorders (45% vs. 30%) and hypovolemia (2.7% vs. <11), but a relatively lower incidence of postoperative infections (<11 vs. 3.4%).
