Does Cannabis Help Relieve Constipation?

Constipation of intestinal reflexes may be alleviated by the anti-emetic properties of cannabis. Relief of constipation was one of the original cannabis indications cited by Shen-Nung five thousand years ago…

Chemicals in marijuana help regulate the digestive system and have been suggested as a treatment for a wide range of bowel disorders. While marijuana seems to help by reducing bowel movements in inflammatory bowel disorders, it appears to have an opposite effect in constipation…

I’ve never had a lot of digestive problems, even when I was taking opioids.  But now that I don’t have access to cannabis, I’ve noticed that I’m having a little bit of difficulty with constipation issues — problems I didn’t have when I was able to smoke pot every day.  I’m guessing it’s due to all the stress of not being able to manage my pain (along with the stress caused by Unum). Bad enough that I’m too poor to be a member of New Mexico’s Medical Cannabis Program, but now I have to deal with this too.  I’m telling you, it’s hell to be poor.
