The Benefits of Medical Marijuana for Pain Relief
Over the past few years, more time, investment and resources have been put into understanding how medical marijuana can help in people with chronic pain.
Although it has only been legalised for medical use in the UK very recently, it is already helping thousands of people to manage the symptoms of conditions like musculoskeletal, neuropathic and widespread pain syndromes.
It can also be used to reduce pain in:
Back pain & sciatica
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Did you know that around 28 million people in Britain are living with chronic pain (which is defined as pain that last three months or longer)?
With so many people suffering on a daily basis, it is no wonder than alternative therapies such as medical cannabis has become extremely popular all around the world.
So, how can medical marijuana help?
Studies have shown that this treatment works by interacting with the endocannabinoid system within the human body, found largely in the nervous and immune systems. To put it simply, medicinal cannabis enhances the defence system that that body already has, and works alongside it to help combat pain.
What are the benefits of medicinal cannabis for pain relief?
Medical marijuana has many benefits for both mental and physical wellbeing. As well as reaching the main goal of reducing day-to-day pain, it can also promote a healthy sleep pattern, help with concentration, improve your quality of life and boost your mood and mental health.
Using medical cannabis also reduces the need for taking other powerful painkillers like codeine, co-codamol, tramadol and many other highly addictive tablets. Over time, you can become reliant these types of pain relief and after long periods, they can cause addiction and damage your body and its organs.
Medical cannabis is a natural way to alleviate pain that does not cause addiction, and because it does not contain THC you will not feel any troubling or discomforting side effects.
