Marijuana May be an Alternative to Opiates
This is not just great news for Alabamians with chronic pain. It’s also great news for the state as a whole, because medical marijuana has been shown to reduce the need for opiates as a painkiller.
Alabama has been hit hard by the opioid crisis, and finding alternative methods of pain management can help reduce overdoses and deaths throughout the state.
What Is Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain lasts for weeks, months, or even years, but it is most commonly defined as pain that endures for more than three months.
Chronic pain can be associated with some condition that causes the initial pain, such as arthritis, IBS, or any other condition that causes severe pain.
However, chronic pain can linger beyond the resolution of the underlying cause, and sometimes patients can experience chronic pain that has no identifiable cause.
Obviously living in pain for weeks or months is debilitating and adversely affects a patient’s quality of life. The simplest tasks can become overwhelming or impossible. Just getting out of bed or getting dressed can prove to be an insurmountable challenge.
Chronic pain doesn’t just hurt the body. Living with it can be stressful and emotionally devastating, meaning many who suffer from the condition often must also cope with depression and an inability to attend to their daily routines.
Treating Chronic Pain
Because chronic pain is often difficult to treat, more and more doctors and patients in recent years have turned to powerful opioid-based medications for relief. This has been catastrophic for our nation as a whole, as these highly addictive medications have fueled the opioid epidemic.
Studies indicate that THC is an effective pain reliever for cancer patients, and without the negative side effects associated with many of the more traditional treatment options.
In addition to its pain relieving qualities for cancer patients, other medical marijuana patients have reported it alleviates a wide-variety of types of pain, and that it is especially useful in treating pain from neuropathy.
With opiate addiction ruining lives and communities nationwide, medical marijuana has become an effective and reliable alternative for chronic pain sufferers. The time has now come for Alabamians to enjoy the relief cannabis can offer.
