Scientists find ‘little evidence to show cannabis oils help end pain’

Trendy cannabis-based products that have become a £700 million-a-year business in the UK do not appear to alleviate pain, according to a major US study.

Over the past decade there has been a boom in sales of oils, sprays and ointments containing cannabidiol (CBD) – one of the main active ingredients in cannabis but which does not produce the ‘high’ associated with the Class B drug.

Many adverts for CBD products imply health benefits, including pain relief, although as almost all are classed as food supplements, makers are banned from making explicit claims. But researchers, in a study backed by the US government, have now found little evidence they help in this respect.

Writing in the journal Annals Of Internal Medicine, author Professor Marian McDonagh, of Oregon Health and Science University, said: ‘With so much buzz around cannabis-related products, and the easy availability of marijuana in many [US] states, consumers might assume there would be more evidence about the benefits and side effects. Unfortunately, there is very little scientifically valid research into most of these products.’
