On another edition of Medical Monday, we are looking at how medical cannabis can help with fibromyalgia.
While the cause of fibromyalgia is widely debated, Dr. Ethan Russo, a prominent neurologist and pharmacologist who has dedicated much of his professional career studying cannabis and the endocannabinoid system, theorized that fibromyalgia could be related to Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD). The endocannabinoid system is like the Internet of your body — a communications network facilitating communications between your brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. [Leafly]
Medical marijuana has been shown to be an effective way to treat the pain associated with fibromyalgia, and has been shown to be far more effective then prescription drugs, in most studies. 62 per cent of respondents in a reported study, said cannabis is “very effective” in treating their symptoms.
