Most Patients Have a Positive View of CBD as a Treatment for Pain

The widespread acceptance and availability of CBD has increased in recent years, making it a popular choice for patients for self-medication for a variety of ailments. In a new survey published in the Journal of Pain Research, researchers set out to examine “participants’ attitudes and views toward cannabis-based medicine (CBM) with a focus on perception of CBD and its potential role for pain management.”

Participants from seven pain management clinics in Southern California were surveyed to learn about their knowledge, beliefs, and personal experience with CBD products. A total of 253 participants were surveyed. Among these participants, 62.0 percent reported having tried a CBD product. Seventy-one percent reported believing CBD was a good treatment option, 74.9 percent reported believing CBD was “not harmful,” and 65.3 percent reported believing it was “not addictive.”

Overall, the survey found that most participants expressed a positive attitude about CBD products and reported positive outcomes from CBD for a variety of conditions.
