Study Revealed that Cannabis Treatment Can Help Improve Quality of Life

A study that was held in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology Reports found that cannabis can significantly help patients with chronic pain, depression, anxiety, and more.

This research involved 1,378 participants from the UK Medical Cannabis Registry, who had permission from doctors to use cannabis products like oils, flowers, or both, especially when traditional medications didn’t work.

The study tracked the effectiveness of cannabis over 1, 3, 6, and 12 months. The findings were positive, with patients reporting less anxiety, better sleep, and overall improved quality of life. Interestingly, many also reduced their opioid use, aligning with other studies’ results.

The conclusion was clear: cannabis-based medicinal products (CBMPs) improved patients’ anxiety, sleep, and health quality. Those using dried flowers seemed to benefit the most. Opioid prescriptions decreased over time, and most side effects were mild to moderate.

This study adds to the growing body of evidence that cannabis can be effective for various conditions like chronic pain, PTSD, depression, anxiety, migraines, inflammatory bowel disease, and others.
