Crohn's disease

Has anyone had any good experience with their Crohn's and cannabis? I've heard that it does wonders, they are trying to get me to switch to the humira stuff, but I heard the side effects are pretty bad, including cancer. So just trying to find out what people have had with canaries and Crohn's....

My sister has Crohn's, which I'm sure you know if a large spectrum of symptoms, I'm not sure what she takes, but I know it's an injection form, not a pill form.

She manages it better these days.
She also smokes cannabis.
My opinion is that the cannabis is more anxiety reducing than anything.

Given that Krohn's is a psychosomatic disorder, having a bearing on the head-game is where it's at, imo.

She's recently stopped smoking cigs as well, as have noticed a great improvement in her condition.

Less coffee for that matter as well.

And what to do you know..... when she stopped taking things that suppressed her appetite she was hungrier and actually put on a little weight, which has been an issue for her.

There are few things in my knowledge which can help someone who is suffering from this disease.
Eat less dairy products.
Avoid fats.
Limit the amount of fiber.
Eat small meals.
Drink plenty of useful liquids.
Avoid stress/Depression.
Making exercise a part of routine these things can surely help.
