Cannabis as a Treatment for Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
Chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS) used to be RSD: CRPS is chronic arm or leg pain developing after injury, surgery, stroke or heart attack. The pain is out of proportion to the severity of the initial injury. It is uncommon and not clearly understood. Treatment is most effective when started early.
Cannabis is a recommended alternative form of treatment for CRPS. Cannabis can reduce pain, muscle tension and help with the stress and anxiety which is often a result of this very difficult condition.
