Many seniors swear by cannabis or CBD for easing chronic pain and insomnia. But up until recently, there was little scientific evidence that cannabis products worked for these conditions.
A major new study changes that.
The study was published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs. Researchers analyzed a survey of 1,000 people who take medical marijuana.[i]
Of the subjects who took cannabis for pain relief:
- 80% rated it as “very or extremely helpful.”
- 82% were able to reduce or stop taking over-the-counter pain medications.
