Cannabis for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a group of genetic disorders where the connective tissue that supports the skin, bones, blood vessels and other organs and tissues fails to form properly, due to mutations in genes that produce the fibrous proteins and enzymes that make collagen. EDS affects approximately 1 in every 5,000 people globally. It is thought that around 10,000,000 Americans are affected. For those coming out of surgery and/or chronic pain due to EDS, cannabis represents a possible alternative to opioids and powerful NSAIDs.
