Marijuana for Pain Relief: Second Opinion

Marijuana’s pain-relieving potential is worth investigating, McQuay says in his commentary.

He points out the average daily pain relief was lower, ”but not hugely so,” for people taking the highest concentration of marijuana.

The cannabis, he tells WebMD in an email interview, “may help some patients who have limited relief from other remedies, but current cannabis formulations are unlikely to replace existing treatments.”

Among McQuay’s disclosures are serving as an advisory board member for Pfizer’s Data Safety and Monitoring Board, as a consultant for Sanofi and other companies, and receiving royalties for a textbook on pain.
