Studies

In a study on 2007, around 50 to 70% multiple sclerosis patients experiencing pain were given cannabinoids, and others were given a placebo. The study concluded that cannabidiol including THC spray is effective in treating people who are suffering from neuropathic pain of MS.

In another study in 2007, it was checked whether Sativex (THC/CBD) has long-term effectivity. The study concluded that Sativex is effective in CNP and MS patients who were treated for two years.

In a study conducted on 2014 conducted that the cannabinoid system has one of the principal therapeutic value of analgesia and there are many studies which shows the same result of the efficacy of cannabinoid compounds.

In 2014, in another study, it was investigated about the treating ability of chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain of CBD. The study concluded that if one can adjust CBD during PAC chemotherapy, it will be safe and effective to prevent or attenuate chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain.

In 2008, a study found that controlled extract of cannabis that contains multiple cannabinoids in a ratio mixed with other non-cannabinoid fractions such as terpenes and flavonoids can provide better antinociceptive efficacy.

In 2011, a study was done to see the effects of two non-psychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol and cannabichromene on pain management. The study concluded that “CBD and CBC stimulated descending pathways of antinociception and caused analgesia by interacting with several target proteins involved in nociceptive control. These compounds might represent useful therapeutic agents with multiple mechanisms of action.”

A study done on 2012 reported that “systemic and intrathecal administration of cannabidiol (CBD), a major nonpsychoactive component of marijuana, and its modified derivatives significantly suppress chronic inflammatory and neuropathic pain without causing apparent analgesic tolerance…These cannabinoids may represent a novel class of therapeutic agents for the treatment of chronic pain and other diseases…”
