Pain is one of the most common reasons patients use medical cannabis, and it works. Medical cannabis is effective on several forms of pain, including pain caused by inflammation, headaches, muscle soreness, neuropathy, spinal injury, fibromyalgia or cramps. The type and intensity of pain, as well as the person’s unique physiology all, play a role in how effective medical marijuana might be on treating pain.

More and more, patients are using medical marijuana to obtain relief from chronic pain. Some strains of cannabis are more suited to ease the pain. In general, there are two main strains of cannabis – indica and sativa. Then, there are a whole host of hybrid strains. In general, indica strains are better for pain management because these strains have an overall sedative effect.
