From this study (2 days ago):
Im having a severe Diarrhea and frequent bowel movement. I was told by the Dr that it might be IBS. but i figured out with time that just when i dont Smoke Marijuana i get Bowel movement and as long as im smoking in it im fine.
So i came up with it might be result of excessive smoking throught the 2 years that i been on MJ, I want to quit i just want to know if there is anything that can help my bowel movement during the time im quitting smoking .

Cannabis Extracts are healing several medical conditions such as diabetes, IBS, inoperable brain cancers, prostate cancers, lung cancers, etc. If you are worried about "craving" Cannabis, don't worry, we are ALL born with an ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM. Only purpose is to process cannabinoids, which our bodies actually produce in small quantities. Breast milk contains cannabinoids as well, so we are not only born with a system to receive them, our mother's are providing it to us from birth. All facts, you can Google it all. I host a Facebook group called Cannabis Oil Sucess Stories and we are over 14,000 members, largest in the world.
Ask or research, the facts are the facts. Thanks for permitting me to inform!
