Medical Marijuana For Chronic Pain

​What Is Chronic Pain?

Everyone experiences pain at one time or another. Living in pain for an extended amount of time is debilitating and negatively impacts quality of life. Oftentimes, the most basic of activities, such as getting out of bed or even getting dressed, can become a challenge. This type of pain not only takes a physical toll on the body, but it is often draining on an emotional level. As a result, many sufferers of chronic pain find themselves depressed or lacking motivation to complete their daily routine. 

Treatment Options for Chronic Pain

Due to the nature of chronic pain, the condition can be difficult to treat. In recent years, many doctors have prescribed powerful opioid-based pain medications to patients. This trend has been detrimental, as these prescriptions are highly addictive and have contributed to the opioid epidemic in the U.S. 

 

How Medical Marijuana Can Help Treat Chronic Pain

Medical marijuana is becoming a popular alternative to treat chronic pain. A study published by the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs evaluated 1,000 marijuana users and found that among the individuals that used marijuana for pain, 80 percent experienced tremendous relief. 82 percent of the individuals were able to reduce the use of over-the-counter pain medications and 88 percent stopped treatment with opioids.
