Pain is all yours, no one can feel or take your pain. But don’t let anyone take away your happiness
Pain is defined as an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience, associated with or resembling that associated with, actual or potential tissue damage.
It is chronic, if it lasts or recurs for more than three months and is a very debilitating condition for the individual suffering from it.
Types of chronic pain
- Joint pains, usually due to various types of Arthritis
- Back (Spinal pain) due to various conditions
- Neuropathic pain
Traditionally pain management consists of treating the primary condition with appropriate measures (Surgery, Rehabilitation, Physiotherapy ) and when all active treatment has been implemented, if pain persists other options are considered.

There are a lot of individual stories that cannabis can be effective for treating pain – but how effective is it ?
The short answer is that it depends on many factors: it seems to work very well for some, but it isn’t a cure-all and doesn’t work for everyone.
Various studies have looked at the use of different forms of cannabis (THC, CBD, combinations of both, and whole flower) in different types of chronic pain (such as that from nerve, joint, inflammatory, cancer, musculoskeletal). Overall, the results are promising.
One advantage of cannabinoids is that, unlike opioids (a common form of potent pain killer), they seem to have a safer side effect profile. In situations where too much is taken, opioids are known to cause a person to stop breathing. The same does not happen with cannabinoids. Whilst cannabis oil can cause side effects like with any other medication, these generally tend to be mild and can go away by themselves over time.
