Answer - Leslie Elkind MD

For patients on prednisone for polymyalgia rheumatica cannabis can provide some relief of discomfort. The amount required is dependent on many variables, such as the size of the patient or the route of administration, but cautious experimentation will often discover a useful regimen. The CBD in cannabis may also have beneficial effects on the inflammatory process, but this is not yet something that has been quantified in terms of dose/effect. I'd make sure whatever preparation I was using has plenty of CBD.
