Choosing Cannabis for Pain Relief

Cannabis for Pain

Cannabis is a natural choice for patients looking to relieve several ailments and treat serious diagnoses, but it is most commonly used for pain relief. The goal when taking anything for pain is for the patient to experience increased quality of life. This can mean many things to many people, but to us it means functioning normally with minimal pain and limited side effects. The fastest and most efficient way to initiate pain relief with Cannabis is to inhale it because it is absorbed by the body faster than taking oral medication. 

If you are currently taking pain pills for pain relief, we do not advise that you stop your prescription and start using Cannabis. Rather, we advise that you speak to your physician about how you may be able to supplement some of the pain medication with Cannabis. Doing this will allow you to slowly wean yourself off the pain medication while simultaneously treating the negative side effects that accompany cutting back on the pills. It can relieve nausea, dizziness, and provide the patient with a relaxing, uplifting experience.
