Medical Marijuana and Fibromyalgia

What Is Fibromyalgia?

A common condition characterized by long-term, body-wide pain and tender points in joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. Fibromyalgia has also been linked to fatigue, morning stiffness, sleep problems, headaches, numbness in hands and feet, depression, and anxiety.

Medical Marijuana and Fibromyalgia

An estimated 12 million Americans suffer from fibromyalgia, which is a chronic pain syndrome that is difficult to treat and impossible to cure. Since there is no cure, effective pain management strategies are essential for helping patients cope with the disease. Medical marijuana is very effective in reliving pain, and it is a natural alternative to the traditional pain medications often prescribed to fibromyalgia patients.

Research shows that using medical marijuana is an effective way to relieve the pain and anxiety associated with the disease. In 1999, the Institute of Medicine found in their report titled Marijuana and Medicine that the cannabinoids found in marijuana can relieve a variety of symptoms, including chronic pain. Additionally, The Journal of Pain reports that patients with fibromyalgia who were treated with a synthetic form of marijuana showed significant reductions in pain and anxiety.

Medical marijuana has helped thousands of fibromyalgia patients and it is an affordable, effective and natural alternative to traditional pain medication.
