Is Medical Marijuana a Good Neuropathic Treatment?
Neuropathic pain is caused when the person suffering has damage done to their nerves. This damage causes the nerves to send incorrect signals to the pain centers which leads to the pain. Each neuropathic pain is going to differ depending on the number and location of nerves that were damaged and as a result there a variety of ways to treat this type of pain. In extreme cases, even surgery may be recommended for sufferers.
However, there is an alternative option that has had prior success. Medical marijuana can be effective at treating your pain. This is because it targets those receptors that help to regulate the central nervous system. What results from this is a reduction in pain intensity as well as anti-inflammatory relief and more relaxed muscles.
There can be some misconceptions that this form of neuropathic treatment can have many risks and cause negative side effects. However, a previous study found that by simply having one inhalation three times a day, five days a week, the severity of pain and the quality of sleep both improved and the drug itself was well-tolerated. While additional studies are still being done to research the full extent of its effectiveness, what is clear is that medical marijuana can make a real difference in the lives of patients who take it.
