Study: Cannabidiol could become a more effective palliative than opioids

Just recently, research scientists in the United States began studying cannabis as a potential alternative treatment to opioids for pain management. The US government is concerned about the increasing dependence of patients on opioids and hopes that the results of this research will be conclusive.

The power of CBD in palliative care processes

Conducted jointly by researchers at NYU Langone Health in New York and Florida, the research is primarily focused on CBD's ability to relieve postoperative pain in patients recovering from shoulder surgery. They want to study both the efficacy and safety of a future cannabidiol-based treatment.

Michael J. Alaia, one of the researchers involved in the trial and also an associate professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at NYU Langone Health, said there is a real need for viable alternatives for managing this type of pain. He went on to say that the point of this study is to highlight some form of CBD as a tool with high potential for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair.

Promising initial results in reducing postoperative pain

The good news is that the initial results of the research - presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons in Chicago - are quite convincing.

In summary, patients who took the CBD-based treatment experienced 23% less pain compared to those who received the placebo. In addition, better pain management was observed in 22-25% of the patients who were treated with CBD, but we can go even further... Of the total number of patients who received CBD treatment, one half consumed 50 mg and the other half consumed only 25 mg. It turns out that the half who received the higher dose of cannabidiol were more satisfied overall with the pain control of CBD.

Inexpensive and without the side effects of NSAID anti-inflammatory drugs or the risk of addiction associated with opioids, cannabidiol is also free of the psychotropic effects associated with THC.
