I've heard that it helps some, doesn't help others. Everybody is different, so the effect changes from person to person.

why do you want to? If it doesn't mess up your stomach, it's going to mess up your mind.

I agree with Nugget. Not to sound preachy, but you do know that stuff slowly kills off your brain cells, right? And I live in the weed capital of the world (outside of Amsterdam, anyway). Ever heard of "BC bud"?

But it probably would mess with your stomach. If it can alter your perception and your motor skills, then it must mean it is affecting your central nervous system somehow. That's not good news for IBS. Just my opinion...

Smoking of any kind can lean to all kinds of really nasty cancers and the "weed" itself is linked to stomach cancers, as is normal tobacco aswell as lung cancers.

Try dealing with IBS AND the cramps that cancer gives someone.

God Bless and please Pray about this and talk it over with your Dr.
Choose to live and breathe fresh air.

Okay, I just can't let this go. You are 15 years old!!!!!!!!

And, if you haven't heard, "weed" is illegal. You would be commiting a crime in addition to screwing up your mind. The only reason you wouldn't smoke it because of your stomach?

Please think about what you are doing. Please, your only 15 years old.

Okay, sermon over. I know you only asked how it would affect your tummy....but I just had to give my opinion. Ignore it if you want.

Okay, Anna, I didn't realize you were only 15.

Do NOT smoke weed. As I said, I live in the weed capital of the world and I've known a lot of people who smoke it. It makes you stupid. NO LIE. It has been proven that regular use of weed actually decreases your IQ over time. Ever seen the movie "Half Baked"? The idiocy of the main characters is NOT too far from the truth.

Anna, smoking weed can really irritate your digestive system and worsen your IBS and cause a lot of stabbing pain in your abdomen. Even just "regular" cigarettes do that, I know healthy non-IBS people who end up with diarrhea after smoking just one or two. Smoking anything is a huge no-no for IBS folks. You'll be better off finding something else to satisfy "herbal cravings" - a chai late with soy milk, or peppermint, fennel, or chamomile tea are really yummy.
