Can medical marijuana help fibromyalgia patients by reducing fibromyalgia pain and symptoms? According to many people with fibromyalgia, the answer is a resounding, “Yes.” Scientific studies have shown that THC may help to decrease chronic pain in patients with fibromyalgia. In addition, most fibromyalgia patients who have tried medicinal marijuana for symptoms including pain, depression, and insomnia report that medical marijuana is effective and has few side effects.

Why Medical Marijuana Can Help to Treat Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome which is characterized by diffuse muscle and joint pain. Fibromyalgia may also be referred to as Fibromyositis or Fibrositis. In addition to the chronic pain common to most or all Fibromyalgia patients, Fibromyalgia symptoms may include insomnia, depression, skin conditions, hypoglycemia, a loss of mental acuity, fatigue, gentiurinary complications, and more. Many of these symptoms can be reduced or alleviated by using medical marijuana as prescribed by an experienced medical marijuana doctor.

Medical marijuana for Fibromyalgia patients works well due to the natural pain relieving properties of THC and other cannabinoids found in cannabis. A 2006 study found that THC, a primary substance found in medical marijuana, reduced both chronic pain and experimentally induced pain by at least 50 percent in all patients who completed the THC therapy trial. In addition, clinical trials found that Nabilone, a synthetic medical marijuana pill, reduced pain and anxiety significantly in Fibromyalgia patients.
