Cannabis for Pancreatitis

Studies and Information on Cannabis for Pancreatitis

The pancreas is both an endocrine gland secreting hormones such as insulin, glucagons, and somatostatin, and a digestive organ producing digestive juices containing enzymes vital to the breakdown of food particles and their molecular absorption in the small intestine.

Pancreatitis, an inflammation of the pancreas, occurs when the digestive enzymes are activated while still in the pancreas, causing the breakdown of cells while still inside the organ. The resulting irritation and inflammation cause the symptoms associated with the disease.
