Shock Report: Cannabis Not as Effective for Pain Relief as We Thought!

You’re not gonna want to hear this…

A new review of 20 scientific studies has just revealed that cannabis isn’t as effective as thought when it comes to relieving acute or chronic pain. The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, looked at the impact of smoked or vaporized cannabis on patients suffering from everything from post-operative pain to multiple sclerosis-related spasms and arthritis. Unfortunately, the results weren’t promising–after analyzing the results, the researchers found that the effectiveness of cannabis in relieving pain is “limited and uncertain”.

The study also showed that using cannabis could result in a variety of side effects, including confusion, dizziness, nausea and fatigue. This news is sure to be a disappointment to those who rely on marijuana to manage their chronic pain, but it’s a sobering reminder of the risks associated with cannabis use. The research team is recommending that medical professionals take a cautious approach when recommending medical marijuana to their patients, and that further research needs to be done to better understand the potential pain-relieving effects of cannabis.
