Hello @eltrosewater — Welcome to Connect. There is another discussion on Crohn's disease that you might want to post your question for more visibility here:

Groups > Digestive Health > Crohn's disease

I'm tagging our moderator Kanaaz @kanaazpereira to see if she is able to move your post to the above discussion to hopefully get some answers for you.
I did find the following website that may be helpful:

John thank you for your kind welcome and the info. I know a lot of people hesitate to even discuss the use of cannabis to treat pain and inflammation or in other medicinal ways, but after eight years of trying every pharmaceutical combination, having surgeries to repair many abscesses and fistulas, etc., I am still not even close to being in remission from Crohn's Disease, so I am considering every option before I have a colostomy, which has already been suggested.

Hi @eltrosewater there is also another discussion you might want to read through here and post any questions you might have.
