I don’t like to admit I have IBS.
I typically claim that I am lactose intolerant. What I do is limit certain foods in my diet. I don’t eat a lot of dairy. Foods high in lactose like milk and ice cream are cut from my diet. I also don’t eat meat, greasy foods or a lot of sugar. I make it a priority to work out and stretch everyday too. Even with this, I still experience stomach issues. I get cramps, my stomach makes horrible noises and I run to the bathroom. It is the most painful thing in the world. I literally brace my hands on the wall and sweat. I have read online that people rely on cannabis when they have stomach issues. I occasionally experience nausea with my stomach issues and cannabis helps with that as well. The last thing I want to do is consume something. So that leaves me with vaping cannabis oil. I don’t vape everyday but I do when I am being risky when I eat. Anytime I am about to eat out I vape right before the meal. I take some tums, beano and pepto with me as well. I figure the combination of all those things should help me. I have been able to decrease the amount of stomach flare ups I experience now that I use cannabis. I don’t tell people I am a marijuana user. They would want to know what it is for and I don’t really want to admit it is due to diarrhea, nausea and stomach cramps.
