Cannabinoids in the treatment of pain

“Cannabinoids and the endo-cannabinoid system play an important role in the sensation of pain. As conventional analgesics are often associated with serious side-effects, cannabinoids and agonists of their receptors offer a useful alternative or coanalgesic in the treatment of pain. The aim of this work is to summarize the role of cannabinoids and their receptors in nociception and pain treatment.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2991928/

Cannabinoids seem to be effective against neuropathic pain, inflammatory pain, post-operative pain and cancer pain. Their use as analgesics or coanalgesics may offer a useful alterative option for pain management in clinical practice.” http://www.annals-general-psychiatry.com/content/9/S1/S232/abstract
