Herb : 19y male w. IBS unresponsive to Bentyl (dicyclomine) might benefit from Cannabis sativa, not indica, taken orally as tea. If there is chronic low back pain following upon skate/snow board injuries, an Osteopath might be consulted to evaluate for pelvic girdle instability. I have studied several young male extreme sport enthusiasts who developed chronic low back pain & IBS; after mechanical falls onto buttocks.
