Phantom Limb & Marijuana

Phantom limb refers to pain in an area where an extremity was amputated, almost feeling like the extremity is still present. Phantom limb is very common among veterans, but about 80% of all amputees will experience phantom limb at some time. Cannabis has anti-inflammatory and pain reducing properties that can decrease the sensations caused by phantom limb. Cannabinoids, the components found in cannabis, are believed to relieve pain through the modulation of neurotransmitter release. The bodies natural endocannabinoids, which in high quantities reduce pain, can be supplemented by cannabinoids from marijuana to decrease pain in the body.
