We’ve initiated research projects focusing on not only the clinical effects but also the quality of life for the patients during the pilot programme.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome, characterized by chronic musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and mood disturbances. There are nearly no data on the effect of medical cannabis (MC) treatment on patients with fibromyalgia. Data were obtained from the registries of 2 hospitals in Israel (Laniado Hospital and Nazareth Hospital) on patients with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia who were treated with MC. Medical cannabis treatment had a significant favorable effect on patients with fibromyalgia, with few adverse effects.
