To all patients with IBS that use cannabis/marijuana!

Dear Patient,
reports from patients suggest that use of cannabis/marijuana reduces symptoms associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). In order to bring this to a scientific level more detailed information from patients is needed.
We are conducting a study that is assessing the use, the benefits and the side effects of cannabis/marijuana for the self-treatment of IBS. This questionnaire is directed to all patients with IBS that use cannabis/marijuana for their IBS.
We are asking you to complete the internet based questionnaire. Please make sure that you respond to all questions which may take you approximately 10 minutes.
This research study has been approved by the University of Calgary, Canada, Conjoint Health Research Ethics Board. You are under no obligation to complete this questionnaire. Your responses to this questionnaire will be kept strictly anonymous.
Thank you for taking the time to read this material and fully respond to the questionnaire.
If you have any questions, please contact the administrator for this study: Cannabis_use_in_IBS@gmx.com
Please, support this research initiative by following the link and answering a 10 min (3 pages of questions) questionnaire.
