Has anyone, successfully, gotten a medical marijuana card for Pouchitis? If so, any tips?

Original Post

Hi, not specifically pouchitis, but I basically qualified by needing it to help with pain/discomfort from gas etc. As well as using it to increase my appetite, otherwise I would not eat much if anything especially when I have been dealing with pouchitis/antibiotics. It also helps me sleep when dealing with gas etc.

I definitely notice a big difference in being able to hold my bowel movements even when pouchitis is flairing. I also am able to keep my appetite up so I don't lose so much weight while flairing. My bowels honestly feel better and are more manageable when I am using cannabis. Without cannabis I would definitely be in a bad place, weight loss and having trouble gaining any back was a huge struggle that is easier now. I also find it helps me to sleep almost all night sometimes (10pm-8am), besides just making sleeping easier I just have less bothersome bowels at night.

I hope that was helpful. I'm not saying that it's for everyone, I haven't been a user all my life but I am willing to try anything that works, which is how most of us got here. Good luck!

What form of cannabis do you take? Awesome information...thank you!

I usually vape cannabis, I also use edibles on occasions. Vaping works best for me due to the quick response, sometimes edibles just take to long to kick in.

How does cannabis help our j-pouch? Does it slow “things” down? I just started using it to help me sleep. But oh my gosh, if it helps in other ways...hook me up! 

Just retired as a flight attendant, so now I can actually take stuff that is better for me...no more randum drug tests. 🤗 Thank you for your help!
