Interesting! I have never noticed MJ products slowing down the gut. I will have to pay better attention in the future. I have noticed an anti-inflammatory effect, but also thought there might be a rebound effect for me. I might be somewhat allergic, which is sad because THC/CBD can be quite pleasant. I'm not really sure yet. I will have to experiment more. In Texas there is something called "Delta 8" which is legal here when many MJ products aren't. It's a nice sleep aid.
