Researchers: Cannabinoids Provide Modest Analgesic Benefit for Central Neuropathic Pain pain, Meng

“Given the void of effective therapy, there’s been an increase in use and popularity of cannabis and cannabinoid for treating this type of pain,” Dr. Meng said. “The concern that we have, however, is that recent pain guidelines provide contradictory recommendations.”
