Cannabinoids can slow down gut motility as well as reduce inflammation. This can help treat the cramps, aches and diarrhea and/or constipation associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease and colitis.
There is some anecdotal evidence of cannabis causing diarrhea and other gut issues associated with cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome (CHS), which is a rare condition caused by long-term consumption of cannabis. Anxiety may make these concerns worse, as could unsafe levels of pesticides in cannabis.
