Cannabinoids for Chronic Pain University of British Columbia. Therapeutics Initiative


Therapeutics Letter 115 examines cannabinoids for chronic pain. Conclusions: Health care providers need to be knowledgeable and non-judgmental when informing patients about cannabinoids. The complexity of cannabinoids as a therapy makes research particularly difficult. At the present time we lack good evidence that any cannabis-derived product works for chronic pain. Future trials need to use fixed dose product composition and assess real world benefits and harms over suitably long durations.
