Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that disrupts many different aspects of a person’s life. Whether it’s constant pain, difficulty sleeping, or over-sensitivity, it becomes difficult to manage your day-to-day life. With cannabis now becoming more accepted as a medical option, researchers and users are seeing how great the benefits of marijuana are for Fibromyalgia. A recent study by Clinical and Experimental Rheumatology shows this directly.
Researchers used 100 patients in Milan, Italy for their study, and documented them across six months of marijuana treatment. The subjects were meant to represent the global population of Fibromyalgia sufferers, with participants being an average of 52 years old and 90% of them being women. Many of them used medical painkillers. Throughout the study, 47% of the study group managed to ease their pain enough to limit or stop their painkillers. Marijuana treatment for Fibromyalgia was shown to be a viable option.
In addition to pain, the members of the study received a number of other benefits. They had better sleep, and less anxiety, contributing to a much better mental state and functioning. Interestingly, the cannabis effects seemed to be more effective on heavier patients.
So, marijuana isn’t just great for Fibromyalgia pain, but for all the other ways it hinders how people live their lives. Marijuana can be the way to help get your life back on track.
