grade-b Minor Very High See all 18 studies
There's a modest but rather reliable reduction in general neuropathic and multiple-sclerosis-related pain when taking cannabis. It should be noted that most cannabis (rather than isolated THC) studies are using an oromucosal spray with THC and CBD, so this may not translate to other forms, and much of this research is industry-sponsored. What research we have on smoking and vaporizing cannabis does suggest that it effectively relieves pain.
