ZHL Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is the most common reason why people seek medical care. So it should be no surprise, chronic pain is also the common reason patients obtain a clinical cannabis (medical marijuana) recommendation.

Jeremy Kossen (science journalist and researcher) and Dr. Michael Hart (PTSD and chronic pain expert) concisely and effectively present the evidence for why cannabis can be an effective alternative to other treatments, particularly prescription opioids.

Including an interview with Amanda Reiman, PhD, one of the leading voices in patient advocacy and harm reduction, you'll gain insights into the "subsitution effect" and how cannabis can play a role in combating the opioid epidemic.

Cannabis can play an important role in pain relief – with or without opiates. And, given the epidemic level of opioid overdoses, it is evident that more physicians should consider prescribing cannabis as part of their therapeutic protocol. Not to, would be irresponsible, unscientific, and unethical.” — Dr. Michael Hart
