Fibromyalgia is a debilitating condition in which widespread pain permeates the body. There are no known cures for fibromyalgia, and there are few treatment options. The best that most patients can hope for is to manage their symptoms. Opioids have been used frequently manage this pain, but with the opioid epidemic and subsequent regulations, these medications are no longer viable options for many people.
Cannabis is a great option for treating the symptoms of fibromyalgia. Full spectrum cannabis has been proven to decrease fibromyalgia pain, even if only temporarily. For many patients, a temporary reprieve two or three times a day is preferable to 24 hours a day of constant and consistent pain.
