    Man, I was really shocked when I found this thread on another site. I was having bad problems with my stomach; pain, gas, bloating, indigestion, burping, nausea, loose stools, blockage, sometimes a little fever, etc, etc.
    I am a long time mj smoker & I smoke pretty much daily. About 3 months ago, I started to get indigestion, gas, bloating, etc, etc, etc. Not having health insurance, I have tried everything and I was getting pretty scared I had somethiong really terrible. I was about to pull out $4000 from my IRA for a colonoscopy to get myself checked.
    Then I found this thread on a med site about others, like me, who are having reactions to pot. If any of you are having stomach problems, or lung problems, it may help you::peace:

    Only time pot ever gave me bad indigestion, constipation, bloating, and gas, was when I ate an eighth raw.

    Won't ever do that again.

    Also - combusting anything and inhaling it is bad. :D

    Why are you saying your problem is a reaction to pot? You smoked for years, recently started having stomach problems. Take the colonoscopy because it's not the pot, as you will find out when you quit smoking it. A good idea is to try a raw food detox diet. Detoxify your body and cleanse your GI with healthy organic foods. After the first week you will feel 10x better, at the end of the month when you are finished you will be a new man/woman.
    I still dont see why you think the pot is hurting your stomach, was it because you read that article?? I can show you articles that prove pot will help your stomach pains... let me see what dr bob has related to GI disorders.
    Crohns disease
    GERD
    Ulcers
    There you go, read those and your problems wont be related to pot anymore. I really hope you try the detox cleanse, then the colonoscopy. It is FOOLISH to think smoking pot will do those things to your body. It's the pepsi and cheetos you ingest after smoking that is the problem, good luck.

    It's probably your diet.

    People often forget "you are what you eat", or sometimes put "...what you don't excrete".

    I understand what you folks are saying but I guess none of you clicked onto the link and read the thread. I know it's weird, but it happened to me. I know it's true. I hads a colonoscopy last January and all I was good. You guys can debunk it if you like, but I've had first hand experience. I posted this to help the few folks that might have problems with it in the future. Most meds come from things that grow naturally in nature: plants, roots, flowers, bark, seed, etc, etc. they all have side effects to some....Just remember what I posted if you have problems in the future...

    Nope, I eat a well balanced diet and stay away from junque food and carbonated drinks and abstain from alcohol in excess as well. I get plenty of healthy exercise and have a yearly physical and I just had a colonoscopy in January and everything was fine. It is the pot, no doubt about it.

    I see you're no doctor pal. You can make a case for anything using false assumptions like you do. :wall:

    You're not a doctor and you're not qualified to make that assumption. Nor am I but I can tell you that if you're going to be sure it's the pot you're going to need your endocannabinoid system examined, which means probing around your brain.

    I don't know what you consider a well-balanced diet. I also don't know what you consider excessive consumption of alcohol... lethal dose? :lol:

    I have no idea how or why smoking anything would fuck with your GI tract like you say.

    You plain out dismiss all likelihood with your own statement that it's a recent problem, but you are a long time smoker. :wall:

    I'm not saying it's impossible, but it makes very little sense.

    Here's an idea. Don't smoke pot if that's the fix for your ill. :lol:

    Abandoning your own thread.... :clap:

    Just gonna echo everyone else here. Pot eases my stomach, and has never upset my stomach. Even when eating a bunch of it. :mrgreen:

    Please dont be offended but that is a ridiculous assumption. Something is going on inside your body and you are blaming it on marijuana?? It makes absolutely NO sense. Have you quit smoking and do you feel better? It seems if marijuana was the problem it would be a pretty EASY FIX, no?? Sort of a NO-BRAINER?? Why would you even ask if you are SO SURE?? Quit smoking then if you KNOW that's why. Why did you ask if you are gonna start having a cyber-attitude with the people that are trying to HELP you? If you already got a colonoscopy in January, WHY ARE YOU THINKING OF GETTING ANOTHER?? Its your words, my friend. Try an MRI, CT scan, or ultrasound of your gall-bladder. Or continue to blame your stomach problems on something you arent even EATING!!

    If you have been a long time smoker and a daily smoker but just recently got stomach problems, etc. etc., how can you possibly blame weed for your current ailments?

    You apparently have some other medical problems that are not related to smoking weed. If you don't believe that, than STOP SMOKING and see if your troubles clear up.

    I mean, this isn't rocket science, ya know. Geeez.

    I have had a similar problem, but I think its more from the anxiety I was getting from smoking that caused the bloating and the other issues

    but this is a common problem I believe... but I think its mental..


    btw the solution is like some other people suggested. is taking a week or 2 break and it will be back too normal. if not its something else causing it/

    I was reading the post that you posted and I think its not weed thats making these people sick but as if someone sold them "Bad" weed,
    mixed with stuff you know, because Marijuana itself doesn't cause Stomach problems...
    Try smoking weed from someone else see how it goes.

    That was a thought I had. Mold, other fungi, bacteria, etc. could be breeding on your recent bud acquisition. It's unlikely to be the pot itself.

    Hell it could be pesticides, herbicides, who knows. Grow your own, and have some peace of mind.

    not everyone reacts the same to things, to dismiss this is foolish, i'm not saying he's right, but it very well could be the case that a handful of people get a negative reaction to it, it may well do good in most cases but in some cases it will do bad,

    its like getting meds from the dr's, you get a long list of side effects that never touch you, but in a handful of people it will it just depends on the person, we all love pot thats why we are here but don't just rubish this guys claims, it may well be true
