What is Crohn’s disease?

As this below Mayo Clinic article summarises, Crohn’s disease has symptoms that can affect the quality of life severely for those suffering from it.

Crohn’s disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It causes swelling of the tissues (inflammation) in your digestive tract, which can lead to abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss and malnutrition.

As the above article and numerous other sources online state, there isn’t unfortunately any known cure for it. However, there are numerous remedies, fortunately, which can alleviate the symptoms and enable people having to live with Chrohn’s to enjoy a much fuller life than without.

Can you take Kratom if you have Crohn’s?

The most important thing you should always do before considering any products that could have physiological effects is to always consult your doctor/physician before taking any natural or commercial products for any condition to ensure safety. The combined effects of different substances can be unpredictable and potentially harmful (although rarely) with most natural products.

Kratom and Crohn’s disease

We don’t believe and we have not found any evidence that Kratom can heal or improve Crohn’s disease itself. Information on traditional use in Southeast Asia and research on kratom, propose kratom can increase pain tolerance significantly. You can refer to this study PMC7309661 from NIH for example.

The tolerance increase alone could potentially help people suffering from the symptoms of Crohn’s to function more or less normally in their daily life.

Crohn’s disease and CBD

You might have also heard a lot of good things about CBD. The consensus seems to be that CBD can have a positive impact on Crohn’s patients. However, it also seems to be that CBD does not provide any objective change to the inflammatory burden.

One important principle you should always abide by is to NEVER substitute any prescribed medication without authorization from a physician.
