Cannabis Products for Adults with Chronic Neuropathic Pain

Source: Cochrane
Bottom line: There is a lack of good evidence that any cannabis-derived product works for any chronic neuropathic pain. Background: Neuropathic pain is pain coming from damaged nerves. It is different from pain messages that are carried along healthy nerves from damaged tissue (for example, a fall, or cut, or arthritic knee). Neuropathic pain is treated by different medicines to those used for pain from damaged tissue.
