Perioperative Patient Beliefs Regarding Potential Effectiveness of Marijuana (Cannabinoids) for Treatment of Pain: A Prospective Population Survey

CONCLUSIONS: Patients generally believe that marijuana could be at least somewhat effective for the management of pain and are willing to use cannabinoid compounds for this indication, if prescribed by a physician.

Background and objectives: Cannabinoids have an expanding presence in medicine. Perioperative patients’ perceptions of the effectiveness of these compounds, and acceptance if prescribed for pain, have not been previously described. Our primary objective was to describe patients’ beliefs regarding the potential effectiveness of cannabinoids for the treatment of acute and chronic pain, as well as gauge patient acceptance of these compounds if prescribed by a physician. In addition, demographic and pain history data were collected to elucidate the predictors of the aforementioned patient attitudes. Secondarily, we sought to characterize the subgroup of patients who reported marijuana use. Predictors of marijuana use, effectiveness, and adverse effects were also reported for this subgroup.

Methods: An anonymous questionnaire was administered to 501 patients in the preoperative registration area at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, New York. The questionnaire was designed to collect data on patient demographics, presence of pain, pain severity, use of pain medication, history of illicit-drug use, tobacco use, cannabis use, patient beliefs about the potential effectiveness of marijuana for acute and chronic pain and their willingness to use cannabis for pain, if prescribed by a physician. Normality of distributions for continuous variables was assessed with skewness and kurtosis measures. A logistic regression model was used to assess the demographic and medical characteristics of marijuana users compared with nonusers. The effectiveness of marijuana in dealing with pain and adverse effects associated with its use were examined using exploratory principal component analysis.

Results: More than 80% of this cohort of preoperative patients believed that marijuana could be at least somewhat effective for the treatment of pain after surgery and would be willing to use cannabinoid compounds if prescribed by their physician. Predictors of positive attitudes toward marijuana included history of marijuana use, pain history, and being a marijuana nonuser of white race. Approximately 27% of the respondents reported a history of marijuana use. Younger patients, those with higher levels of pain in the last 24 hours, and those who found standard therapies to be less effective for their pain were more likely to use marijuana.

Conclusions: Patients generally believe that marijuana could be at least somewhat effective for the management of pain and are willing to use cannabinoid compounds for this indication, if prescribed by a physician.

My experience with CBD

Republished by Plato

Published

I will not spend an hour summarizing my mental health. I will just say that for years I have been plagued by depression, anxiety, antisocial feelings, and over the past year or so a feeling of brain fog. I was diagnosed with ADD as a child and they decided I didn’t have it 2 years later but I know I likely still do. I decided to finally give CBD from the local Rite aid a try. After 4 days I can say that the brain fog is gone. A week ago I couldn’t even explain the feeling that plagued me. I still don’t feel anything close to a normal person but I can say that I have a better ability to process my brain that I haven’t felt in years. I reccomend anyone who is interested give CBD a try. I only hope the clowns in our country can get past the marijuana BS that they try to strong along and connect to CBD.

Anxiety and ADD?

Republished by Plato

I went to a doctor to try and sort out my anxiety issues, they are becoming a bit much to self manage. They put me on Prozac and it was a complete nightmare, the side effects were horrible, not to mention all of the unspoken rules that came along with it, no drinking, no ibuprofen, and countless others.

I am a regular THC user and that seems to help control my anxiety in the evenings but I obviously do not use at work which is where the problem lies.

I have issues with general anxiety, social anxiety, and add. Can CBD help me? How do I know how much to take, and do I have to keep taking it as in does it wear off ever couple hours? I dont know anything about this stuff but I know that Prozac is NOT for me!!!
