What is a good strain for Crohns and Ulcerative Colitis?

"My son was just diagnosed with Crohns 4 years after having his colon removed for Ulcerative Colitis, edibles don’t work for him because they go through his system to fast. He is in constant pain and has constant nausea. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you"

Hello. I’m sorry to hear about your son’s condition. We have an article on Crohn’s disease & colitis (linked below), which includes a few cannabis strains such as Sour Grape & Cherry Pie that appear to help with symptoms. The research in the article also talks about inhaled methods being helpful in improving quality of life. We’ve got a couple of answers that you may want to review:

They cover options such as rectal suppositories and tinctures to help relieve symptoms of Crohn’s & ulcerative colitis. You may also want to look into transdermal patches, which deliver cannabis directly into your blood stream & can offer a steady, constant flow of cannabis for up to 8 hours. I hope this helps!


Hello! I have UC and manage it with a holistic lifestyle. I use cannabis, legal hemp flowers, turmeric, ginger, bacopa, valerian root, and lemon balm. Plus, a strict diet. If you’d like to schedule a free 15 minute consultation call, let me know!
