PANCREAS/ PANCREATITIS & Cannabis studies completed


Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas. It has several causes and symptoms and requires immediate medical attention.

It occurs when pancreatic enzymes (especially trypsin) that digest food are activated in the pancreas instead of the small intestine.

It may be acute beginning suddenly and lasting a few days, or chronic, occurring over many years.

Cannabis won't kill you. In sharp contrast to opiates often prescribed for pain, "lethal overdoses from Cannabis and cannabinoids do not occur.
