Almost a third of patients with chronic pain reported using cannabis to manage it, according to new findings from the US.
As more US states legalise cannabis for medical and recreational use, increasing numbers of people are experimenting with it for pain relief, a new study shows.
A team of researchers at the University of Michigan surveyed a representative sample of 1,724 adults with chronic pain living in 36 states with legal access to cannabis for medicinal purposes.
