A research team from North America will perform a study on cannabis’ pain relieving ability. The until recently, classification of cannabis has made it difficult to perform studies for legal reasons, but this is changing as many American states and countries worldwide move towards legalization.
A research team led by Dr. Jeffrey Chen at the University of Los Angeles (UCLA) will conduct an in-depth review of cannabis’ pain relieving ability.
Dr. Chen said “ the public consumption of cannabis has already far out paced scientific understanding, we desperately need to catch up.”
The program designed by Edythe London of UCLA, professor of pharmacology and psychiatry will specifically look at patients using opioids such as oxycodone or vicodone for pain relief.
Chen noted that funding has been established but the next move is to convince the FSA (food standards agency) that it is a worthy assignment that should move forward.
The project comes at a pivotal point as North America struggles with an opioid crisis at an epidemic level. Canada alone saw just short of 7,000 fatal overdoses between 2016/2017.
Chen says that they are not trying to perform pro-cannabis or anti-cannabis research we’re just trying to do good science.
