Crohn’s Disease/ Colitis
Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes the lining of the digestive track to become inflamed.
Crohn’s causes abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, severe diarrhea, fever, weight loss, fatigue and malnutrition. The pain can be so intense that it becomes debilitating. In some cases, the disease can prove to be life-threatening.
The endocannabinoid system has two primary receptors, CB1 and CB2. Although both receptors are found throughout the body, CB1 receptors are predominantly located in the central nervous system – the brain and spinal cord; while CB2 receptors are found in the immune system and the hematopoietic system which includes bone marrow, lymph nodes, the spleen, and thymus.
CB2 receptors regulate the inflammatory process by controlling the release of cytokines produced by the immune cells, which is integral to Crohn’s disease. Activating these receptors results in pain relief and anti-inflammatory effects.
