    Information for people with "insufferable" pain. I knew it all the time.

    Does Cannabis Truly Help Chronic Pain?



    A large study stretching over a 4-year period challenges popular beliefs, as it finds “no evidence” that cannabis use improves the symptoms of chronic pain.
    More and more people are taking prescription opioids for pain management, making the phenomenon “an emerging public health concern globally.”
    Of all the countries in the world, North America has the “proportionally highest” use of prescription opioids.
    Due to opioids’ side effects and highly addictive nature, researchers and patients alike are now turning to medical marijuana, or cannabis, as a potentially safer alternative.

    The issue of 'chronic pain' reduction is problematic.

    It does offer topical use, does help with seizures, eye problems, and other issues.

    My brother died from throat cancer and I can guarantee you that the cannabis oil that he took eased his pain from the "I need to commit suicide" level, to where he was able to pass after a month of being with his family. No opioid did anything for him, but that cannabis absolutely helped him.

    I agree but some people think it's a magic elixir.

    Nothing is a magic elixir. Even regular drugs that are approved by the FDA have variable effects with people. I know of no one who claims it is magic. But the evidence is overwhelming that it helps those with Parkinsons, and with pain suppression.

    It work for westwall's brother, and that is great.

    I have heard other stories where it was so so, but I never heard any story where it made things worse.

    Let the patient and the family decide.

    I HAD throat cancer and it was my pain killer of choice. It got me trough radiation and physical threapy. And it was a damn site easier to quit afterwards.

    Cancer is horrible. My wife, our oldest daughter, a sister, my Mom all died from it.

    Let the family and patient decide.
