Fascinating Study Finds Cannabis Helps Most Patients by Johnny Green

It is estimated that as much as 95% of the world’s population suffers from one or more health conditions, ranging from one minor condition all the way up to multiple conditions that are life-threatening.

Many of those conditions involve repeated trips to the doctor’s office and/or hospital, as well as ongoing treatment in one form or another.

Three of the most common health conditions that the global community suffers from are chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and sleeping disorder.

Roughly one out of every five people on earth suffer from chronic pain, one out of every thirteen people will develop PTSD at some point in their life, and as many as 60% of people worldwide suffer from a sleeping disorder.

Fortunately for patients that suffer from one or more of those conditions, cannabis may be able to help.

Significant Improvements

An international team of researchers recently explored the relationship between medical cannabis and chronic pain, PTSD, and sleeping disorders (among other conditions).

The study cohort involved 214 patients that were enrolled in Canada’s medical cannabis program and researchers from both Canada and Italy. 

Most of the patients were over the age of 50.

Researchers analyzed the patients’ severity of symptoms and reported quality of life at the start of the study as well as 6 weeks after medical cannabis treatment started.

“Here we report that over 60% of our medical cannabis cohort self-reported improvements in their medical conditions. With the use of validated surveys, we found significant improvements in recurrent pain, PTSD, and sleep disorders after 6 weeks of medical cannabis treatment,” the researchers stated.

Patients suffering from chronic pain specifically reported an even greater level of improvements of their symptoms (76%).

An Improved Quality Of Life

The previously cited study also looked at medical cannabis and a number of other conditions, from rheumatoid arthritis to restless leg syndrome.

Patients suffering from those conditions reported improvements as well. 

That is because cannabis is medicine. It’s a fact that is always worth repeating.

The cannabis plant is one of the most dynamic medicines on planet earth, which is why it can treat so many different conditions.

Fortunately, hurdles to cannabis research are going away and more studies can be conducted to further unlock the wellness and healing potential of the cannabis plant, which will benefit all of us.

Owning Guns is a Constitutional Right, Unless You’re a Cannabis User

September 28, 2022

Take two of the most hot-button, tendentious issues of our time – cannabis use and gun rights – combine them, and now we really have a debate. As the law currently stands, medical cannabis patients are not afforded their 2nd amendment right to bear arms. Technically, all cannabis consumers are banned from buying guns, but only medical […]

Cannabis policy changes in Africa are welcome. But small producers are the losers by Clemence Rusenga

Cannabis is a drug crop with a long history in Africa. Alongside coca and opium poppy, it has been subjected to international control for nearly a century. The International Opium Convention of 1925 institutionalised the international control system and extended the scope of control to cannabis. In 1961 a new international convention was adopted to […]

University of Sydney to Offer Free Cannabis Testing by Johnny Green

The University of Sydney is launching a fairly robust study in an attempt to, as the university describes it, “investigate cannabis consumption, behaviours, and attitudes among users.” Part of the study involves offering free, anonymous cannabis testing for people that cultivate their own cannabis in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). Cannabis was decriminalized in 2020 in the […]
