Chronic Pain, Muscle Pain and Other Types of Pain

Cannabis contains compounds known as cannabinoids, with the most well-known being delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). These compounds interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in regulating pain.

THC has analgesic properties that can help reduce pain, while CBD can help reduce inflammation, a common cause of many types of pain. Additionally, cannabis can help improve sleep, which can, in turn, help manage chronic pain conditions. Some studies have shown that medical cannabis can help replace or reduce the use of opioids for pain management.
