Moisten intestines for relaxing bowels.

Large Intestine



The ripe fruit of Cannabis sativa L. of family Mulberry. Because it is sweet, mild and moist in property, and rich in oil, it can moisten intestines for relaxing bowels and has the combined effect of nourishing and tonifying as well. It is suitable for the old, puerpera, and the weak with insufficient blood and body fluid who suffer from constipation due to intestinal dryness. It works when either used singly or combined with other herbs of moistening intestines for relaxing bowels, such as Su Zi. For constipation due to fluid consumption accompanied by dryness-heat, it can be combined with heat-purging and bowels-relaxing, and qi-moving herbs, for instance, Da Huang and Hou Po, as in Ma Zi Ren Wan from Shang Han Lun.
