Here at Florida Medical Cannabis Clinic, we’ve been witness to the life changing transformations that happen when patients are able to better control their chronic pain through medical cannabis. Many patients are able to reduce or come off of traditional pharmaceuticals, lose weight, regain activity, and experience a quality of life they no longer saw possible for themselves. Here are our 5 top tips for using cannabis for chronic pain.
Rick Simpson Oil, or RSO, is a concentrated form of full extract cannabis oil prized for it’s medical benefits, especially for cancer patients. Unlike distillate and isolate oils used for vaping, RSO/FECO retains more of the phytochemicals present in the cannabis plant which adds to the therapeutic value.
Cannabis edibles, or medibles, allow patients to enjoy the medicinal benefits of cannabis without having to inhale. The long lasting effects are body dominant, making medibles a sought after tool for pain management and sleep. For those of us that enjoy cooking or baking (or eating!) medibles can bring some fun into the stressful world of managing chronic illness.
