Understanding Fibromyalgia and how Cannabis can Help


Fibromyalgia can be a difficult medical condition to understand. Unless you have experienced it or know someone who has it can be confusing.

The Mayo Clinic says, “Fibromyalgia is a condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues.” The condition is thought to effect how the brain interprets pain signals.

Like other chronic pain disorders, fibromyalgia is difficult to treat and impossible to cure. Medical cannabis has been known to help treat the pain associated with fibromyalgia. THC has been beneficial in reducing pain in patients. The THC imitates anandamide, which is a natural endocannabinoid of the body. This also supports the idea that fibromyalgia is linked to the endocannabinoid system.Cannabis has limited side effects and can improve mobility and can help to reduce pain and inflammation.
