Cannabinoid Research Studies
Procana is accepting applications to further its own studies in these areas.
Crohns Disease / Colitis
What is Crohns Disease?
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are both major categories of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). IBD affects an estimated 1.6 million Americans. Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract and may affect any part from the mouth to the anus. It is often difficult to diagnose which form of IBD a patient is suffering from because both Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis cause similar symptoms.
Procana Medical Studies [Apply]
Procana is accepting applicants to participate in medical studies of controlled dosage CBD for the treatment of Crohns Disease or Colitis. “CBD” Cannabidiol subset studies will be derived from either Cannabis “Marijuana” or Industrial Hemp. Other medical studies may include ratios of “THC” Tetrahydrocannabinol derived from Cannabis, also known as Marijuana to study the treatment for Crohns Disease or Colitis.
Procana does not warrant, nor does it have approval from the FDA to claim, diagnose or treat any illness or disease with its products containing Hemp, Cannabis or Marijuana with THC or CBD for the treatment of Crohns Disease or Colitis.

Most of the PubMed material consists of abstracts on preclinical research involving single cannabinoid molecules, test tubes, petri dishes, animal experiments, and in some cases human cell-line studies. Although all mammals have cell receptors that respond pharmacologically to cannabinoid compounds, data from animal experiments and other preclinical research is not always applicable to humans.
This data may include articles, surveys, studies or opinions related to THC and CBD from either Marijuana, Cannabis or Hemp in the use of Crohns Disease or Colitis. This information is for research purposes only, and does not include the use of Procana products.
