Scientists find little evidence to show cannabis oils help end pain, according to major study

Post by The Aspie Toker »

Trendy cannabis-based products that have become a £700 million-a-year business in the UK do not appear to alleviate pain, according to a major US study.

Over the past decade there has been a boom in sales of oils, sprays and ointments containing cannabidiol (CBD) – one of the main active ingredients in cannabis but which does not produce the ‘high’ associated with the Class B drug.

Many adverts for CBD products imply health benefits, including pain relief, although as almost all are classed as food supplements, makers are banned from making explicit claims. But researchers, in a study backed by the US government, have now found little evidence they help in this respect.
