Reassessment of the role of cannabinoids in the management of pain.

“The aim of this article is to assess the role of cannabinoids in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in humans.

 …to date there is increasing evidence that cannabinoids are safe and effective for refractory chronic pain conditions including neuropathic pain associated with multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and peripheral neuropathy associated with HIV/AIDS.

SUMMARY:

The precise role of cannabinoids in pain treatment still needs further evaluation. Cannabinoid compounds may be more effective in the context of chronic neuropathic pain than for the management of acute pain.”
