"I felt great from one preacher," says Hannah Dagan, who suffers from Crohn's disease and is currently participating in a study being conducted in Israel to examine the properties of cannabis for the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases. More patients are now required for further research.

Hannah Dagan, A Crohn patient who is participating in the study, told us about the alternative and effective treatment that replaced her with the chemotherapy drugs. "It's a panacea, I already felt great," she says.
When she heard about the possibility of treating cannabis, she was initially afraid to stop taking prescription drugs: "Every time someone told me Cannabis, I said I would never take drugs," she says.
Despite the fears and after the drugs did not help her, Hanna joined the Tikkun Olam research and since then she has reported an amazing improvement in all the medical criteria, mainly since the beginning of the treatment She did not go back to the hospital.
