At Strains Dispensary, many of our customers are looking for cannabis pain relief. While the science on the matter isn’t fully settled, we can report that many at our weed dispensary have successfully eased their discomfort with our wide range of products.

The Science of Cannabis and Pain Relief

Scientists have found that when THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids are consumed, they bind to cannabinoid receptors in the brain and body. We also know that stimulating these receptors may affect how two neurotransmitters, GABA and norepinephrine, are received in the spinal cord, potentially reducing the amount of pain that the brain perceives. Additionally, cannabinoids may also have some anti-inflammatory effects which could reduce pain.

Can Weed Help Me With Pain?

Marijuana for pain relief isn’t for everybody; you should always discuss your weed consumption with your doctor, even if you don’t have a medical marijuana prescription. Marijuana may interfere with other medications you’re taking and can also cause side effects like dry mouth and impaired mental functioning. That said, many Strains Dispensary customers have had success using our products for pain relief.

Weed Products for Pain Relief

Topicals are one of our most popular products for pain relief – if you’re experiencing joint or muscle pain, you can apply a cream or balm directly to the affected area for an analgesic effect without the THC high. If you have a condition that causes unpredictable pain flare-ups during the day, you may prefer a fast-acting method like vape pens. We also offer a wide range of edibles for cannabis pain relief, including ones specifically designed for better sleep.
