Description

Do you have questions about pain and how cannabis can benefit you?

Please join us at Farmacy’s Clinic and speaker Andrew Gill who will be discussing cannabis use and how it can treat your arthritic and back pain.


According to the Arthritis Society, it can affect people of every age, gender, and ethnic background and currently over 4.6 million Canadian adults (1 in 6 over the age of 15) report having it. Growing bodies of successful preclinical and clinical trials are showing the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) and its anti-inflammatory properties.

According to Statistics Canada, back problems are among the most common chronic conditions in Canada, and 4 out of 5 adults will experience at least one episode of back pain at some time in their lives.

Cannabis is becoming the treatment of choice for many chronic and acute pain patients. Pain detecting nerves are filled with cannabinoid receptors and according to researchers, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids control the firing of pain signals from our joints to the brain, ultimately improving pain on movement, pain at rest, and quality of sleep.


Studies have found cannabis to possess positive effects on the following medicinal issues commonly impacting those with pain.

-Chronic pain

-Inflammation

-Muscle tension

-Stiffness

-Scoliosis

-Sciatica

-Rheumatoid arthritis

-Osteoarthritis

-Psoriatic arthritis

-Persistent joint pain

-Locked joints

-Morning stiffness

-Muscle inflammation

…and more
