Cannabis decreases pain via most of the mechanisms found for palmitoylethanolamide, only PEA is devoid of Cannabis side effects, due to the fact that PEA has no affinity for the CB1 receptor.
From the NORML website, cannabis helps control the painful symptoms of neuropathy. I have nerve damage from insecticide posioning, auto wrecks, broken bones, sports injury and repetitive stress from work in service industries. I would be hard pressed to find a single individual whose history of personal injuries didn’t include nerve damage.
It also cures bullshit and lies, assholes and meanies.
