Pain & Marijuana

Cancer patients can have pain of different levels depending on the degree of inflammation, invasion of bone or other painful areas of the body, nerve proximity, type of chemotherapy, and tumor size. Types of pain caused by cancer can become resistant to treatment with traditional opioids. Traditional opioids may not be effective and can come with severe side effects to cancer patients. Cannabis can help elevate pain associated with cancer and chemotherapy. For example, neuropathic pain is common in someone being treated with platinum based agents. This type of pain seems to respond to inhaled cannabis, which was found to relieve the neuropathic pain of 30-50% of patients.
