UK Cannabinoid Research: THC/CBD Effective For Treatment Of Neuropathic Pain

2

For those looking to quell the discomfort of neuropathic pain, a January 2014 study conducted at the University of Glasgow in the UK, and recently published in the European Journal of pain, offers a glimmer of hope. The study published online by the National Institute of Health claims more scientific proof that marijuana’s cannabinoids dramatically reduce the discomfort and associated insomnia suffered by those with neuropathic pain. The study focused on Δ9 –tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol (THC/CBD) oromucosal spray, a novel cannabinoid formulation that was investigated in this 15-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel group study

The scientific methodology was basic: “303 patients with PNP associated with allodynia were screened; 128 were randomized to THC/CBD spray and 118 to placebo, in addition to their current analgesic therapy.”

One surprising outcome of the study, which utilized a simple spray made from marijuana’s THC and CBD cannabinoids was that; “These findings demonstrate that, in a meaningful proportion of otherwise treatment-resistant patients, clinically important improvements in pain, sleep quality and SGIC of the severity of their condition are obtained with THC/CBD spray. THC/CBD spray was well tolerated and no new safety concerns were identified.”

About Author

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog, though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink booze, or do any other "drugs." I consider myself living proof that weed is not a gateway drug - If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math), I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be.

    I have a lot of pain from what is believed to be fibromyalgia. I am looking for a way to better control the pain and would like to be included in a study of some natural compound such as cannabinoids. Are there any such trials currently in progress, or due to start?
