Inflammatory bowel disease patients have long said that smoking pot helps relieve their symptoms, and science is finally catching up. New research has found that IBD patients have a higher density of CB2 receptors
in their guts - CB2 is the second, less-well-characterized of the cannabinoid receptors in the body - and indicates that cannabinoid-based treatments might be helpful. Speaking to New Scientist
about this research, author Karen Wright
makes an amazingly stupid statement, which doesn't necessarily undermine her work, but sure makes me wonder if she's an idiot:
ÂWe are not advocating cannabis use, particularly as smoking tobacco exacerbates Crohn's disease and many smokers of cannabis use tobacco as well.Â
That is a complete and total nosequituror.
Also, why is 2003 UB313
being called the Tenth Planet? What happened to Sedna?
