Rising Trend of Cannabis Consumption Among IBD Patients

Published

on

IBD

A cross-sectional study at Digestive Disease Week states that about 66% of patients who complain having inflammatory bowel disease tell that they have been using cannabis actively. 45 percent say that they use the substance for managing their symptoms of the disease.

Scientists have experimented on animals and have come to the conclusion that CBD has antioxidant properties. Some researchers have also run a few tests on humans. The antioxidative properties of cannabis make it extremely beneficial for alleviating symptoms of the disease. The objective markers of inflamed regions in the body also showed improvement.

However, there is a need to do more research on the efficiency of cannabis in quantitative measures. The use of cannabis for medical and recreational purposes has elevated. According to the World Health Organization statistical data, about 147 million people use cannabis worldwide.

Comparison with the previous study

In 2006, scientists researched to examine cannabis consumption with people having inflammatory bowel disease. The main goal of the recent research was evaluating whether the data has changed in comparison to the data from previous study or not. In addition to this, scientists evaluated the use of the substance in the patients having the bowel disease and its connection with the individual having it and the factors influencing the disease.

Scientists conducted the cross-sectional study at a mono tertiary health care facility in Toronto. The patients eligible for the evaluation were outpatients and above the age of 16. In addition to that, these patients had the inflammatory bowel disease confirmed through radiograph or a biopsy. The diagnosis time had to be at least one month prior to the selection of the patient for the survey.

The scientists collected data regarding the demographics of the patients. In addition, they also gathered their medical history and noted their cannabis usage in their social history. In the survey, the following things were observed:

  • Harvey Bradshaw Index and Ulcerative Colitis Score
  • Mental health problems (9-Item Patient Health Questionnaire and 7-Item General Anxiety Disorder Questionnaire)
  • The overall quality of life (Short Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire)

They reported that around 56 percent of men had CD while 52 percent of them had ulcerative colitis. 71 percent of individuals with CD received a biologic. On the other hand, 52 percent of people with ulcerative colitis had been getting a biologic. Among them, more than a half patients said that they were chronic users of cannabis. On the contrary, about 30 percent of patients had been consuming cannabis actively. It meant that they were using the substance within the last month.

The usage has increased but there is still a need to do more research

On comparison of the results with the previous study, scientists noted that there is an increase in the number of patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis consuming cannabis actively.

However, there is a need to do further research to evaluate the effect of cannabis on patients with inflammatory bowel disease. There is a need to study the way of usage and the formulation of the substance as well to vividly extract beneficial information.
