The school is taking the lead in uncovering how cannabis combats pain

While it has become clear that pain management is one of the most common reasons people indicate using medical marijuana in the US. These studies solidify this fact keep coming in. MoreBetter (Releaf App), LEVEL and Overcome have teamed up with different researchers from the University of Michigan to recruit California residents to be part of a 12-week study focused on the efficacy of cannabis for chronic pain.

The idea is to analyze how effective different cannabinoid capsules and tablets are in managing pain related to rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia and overall quality of life. The goal of the group of specialists is to address the notable gaps that remain in cannabinoid studies related to efficacy for different types of chronic pain. According to a press release, “standardizing product type to tablets and capsules,” this study is the first “to look at efficacy trends related to combined dosing with single product formulations.”

Through a study like this, the researchers hope to clarify the picture for physicians and patients so they can have a greater understanding of how to use cannabinoid medicine as a natural and effective therapy. Millions of people today suffer from these conditions and knowing how cannabis compounds are used could help make their chronic pain a thing of the past.

The study’s principal investigator. Daniel Kruger, Ph.D., is clear that medical cannabis is widely used to treat the most common pain conditions. Its efficacy has been endorsed by the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
