It’s mind boggling how something banned from study in the US has so many studies going on.
Very misleading title. The article stated that people who HABITUALLY used cannabis prior to surgery had more pain and needed more opiates for pain after surgery. This article does not address the effectiveness of cannabinoids for post surgical pain at all. I’m here because last week I had carpal tunnel surgery on one hand and the Tramadol pill prescribed for use after the local wore off did absolutely nothing. I have never smoked marijuana or used any cannabinoids prior to this surgery. I estimate my pain level at 4-5. After several hours like this and unable to sleep or even sit still, I took one quarter of a 5 mg. THC gummy given to me by a relative. Twenty minutes later, my pain level was below 1. Zero side effects, woke up the next morning normally without any lassitude, and the pain was diminished enough that I never needed a second dose. That’s as objective as it gets. I am a retired nurse and very skeptical of medication claims, and this is as close to a medical miracle as I have ever experienced. The medical industry needs to get past politics and do some serious research on cannabinoids as alternatives to opiates.
