Abstract

Medicinal Cannabis for Chronic Pain: A Tale as Old as Time

Lady Christine Ong Sio*, Dani Lapreze and Alexander Bautista

The understanding of the history of medicinal cannabis is important to successfully understand its integration to modern health care. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the most widely cultivated, trafficked, and abused illicit drug is cannabis.  With the growing use of cannabis in pain management, its legalization in more states, and advances in research about its safety profile, we aim to illustrate the beginnings of cannabis as an adjunct to the treatment of pain and its future role as part of the armamentarium in pain medicine.
