Dr. Naftali and a team of researchers used Tikun Olam’s Erez strain to produce dramatic results in the world’s first randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study. 45% of Crohn’s patients achieving “complete remission” and 90% reported Significant Reduction of Crohn’s Disease Symptoms with no side effects.

STUDY POPULATION: 21 patients with Crohn’s Disease

RESULTS:  

Complete remission (CDAI score, <150) was achieved by 5 of 11 subjects in the cannabis group(45%)  and 1 of 10 in the placebo group (10%; P = .43). A clinical response (decrease in CDAI score of >100) was observed in 10 of 11 subjects in the cannabis group (90%; from 330 ± 105 to 152 ±109) and 4 of 10 in the placebo group (40%; from 373 ± 94 to 306 ± 143; P=.028). Three patients in the cannabis group were weaned from steroid dependency. Subjects receiving cannabis reported improved appetite and sleep, with no significant side effects.
