What does the latest research say about fibromyalgia and cannabis?

How many people in the United States live with fibromyalgia? It might be surprising to find out that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports it’s roughly 4 million U.S. adults who have this chronic medical condition.

Fibromyalgia consists of widespread, severe and frequently overwhelming musculoskeletal pain. Traditional fibromyalgia treatment methods currently exist and are used to help combat the pain and other uncomfortable symptoms associated with the condition, but cannabis as an alternative medicine is gaining traction.

Cannabis and Schizophrenia – Not a Testable Hypothesis

In the whole ‘scare’ industry of marijuana, there’s a lot of weird, often illogical, mainly contradictory, and definitely silly stuff floating around. Often, when investigating further, it’s found that there’s a lot of talk, but not a lot of substantial information that this talk is based on. One of the more troubling theories, as far as I’m concerned, is that cannabis and schizophrenia are linked. Is this something that the standard marijuana smoker really has to worry about?

But a lot of these people are learning that with all of the legal discrepancies associated with this crop, it’s a rather expensive trip.

Cannabis And Pain Management: Is Alternative Plant Medicine Becoming The New Norm?

As time goes on, alternative plant medicine, such as cannabis, are slowly changing the way pain management is viewed and executed.

Did you know that in 2019, chronic pain impacted one-third of the U.S. population? This number continues to rise, and so does the consumption of various substances to help manage and/or combat pain.

Currently, different NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), acetaminophen, and opioids are used the most often for the treatment of pain. However, there’s no guarantee that these drugs will be fully effective in eliminating pain nor is there a guarantee that these drugs won’t cause any adverse side effects.
