It does indeed. In fact, this is one of the primary reasons that medical patients choose to use cannabis instead of prescription pain killers. That amount of pain relief you perceive will depend greatly on the type of pain, the method of consumption of cannabis, and the particular product you choose to use. Each has different effects, and also the effects are felt differently for different people.

Absolutely! Cannabis is very effective at combatting all sorts of pain. This is because of the endocannabinoid system, which serves to regulate pain and inflammation in your body. Cannabis is comprised of cannabinoids that can interact with this system in order to regulate nerve pain and inflammation around the body. THC and CBD are the main players, though accessory cannabinoids and terpenes have an impact as well. Additionally, due to the "entourage effect," all of these cannabinoids and terpenes interact with each other to create a stronger effect than they can produce by themselves. I personally find that nothing helps my back pain more than a good topical!

Cannabis helps to forget chronic pain. When pain is chronic it consumes your life, activity is limited, travel Is limited, it's hard to smile. Marijuana aka cannabis is safer than most Pharma drugs, especially NSAIDS. My personal experience shows that different strains affect people differently, so finding the right medium is important. I found that 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC works best for my situation.
