After prescription drugs worsened her condition, Timeka finally found relief with cannabis. Cannabinoids like THC and CBD have anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties that can treat the chronic inflammation which is at the root of Crohn’s, and Timeka credits cannabis with saving her life. Tune in to hear Timeka’s remarkable story, plus expert medical advice for treating Crohn’s and other autoimmune diseases with cannabis.
