Chronic pain is defined as any unpleasant sensation that lasts for over 12 weeks. These sensations include stinging, aching, soreness, burning, and throbbing, and are often accompanied by inflammation. If the pain persists, it can become debilitating.
Cannabis is an effective, non-addictive treatment option for patients looking for an alternative to prescription drugs. It is particularly recommended for patients with drug dependencies relating to prescription opiates (e.g. morphine). Medical cannabis can be prescribed by a GP (General Practitioner) or family doctor. Bring our referral form to your doctor as your first step towards a life free of chronic pain.
Used for its medicinal properties for almost 5,000 years, medical cannabis has been known to treat several forms of pain, from acute (sudden and severe) to chronic (long lasting) pain. Treatment not only helps ease the sensations associated with chronic pain, they may also reduce the frequency of additional flareups. Whether you suffer from long-lasting or sudden pain, medical marijuana is an excellent option for managing this condition.
Until 2017, the government recognized only prescription or OTC (over-the-counter) drugs as a legal method for effective pain management. Patients are seeking alternative forms of treatment for relief from both acute and chronic pain in Toronto and Waterloo. The Clinic Network can help.
Pharmaceuticals can be expensive and have highly addictive properties. Patients who use these drugs for pain management can, over time, become reliant upon them. With increased interest and extended research, medical cannabis has been ruled by the Canadian government as a safe and effective alternative for managing pain and discomfort. Both mental and physiological addiction is less prevalent with medical marijuana use.
