Effect of adding medical cannabis to analgesic treatment in patients with low back pain related to fibromyalgia: an observational cross-over single centre study

Low back pain (LBP) occurs in many patients with fibromyalgia (FM). The current study aimed to assess the possible pain and function amelioration associated with medical cannabis therapy (MCT) in this setting. This observational cross-over study demonstrates an advantage of MCT in FM patients with LBP as compared with standardised analgesic therapy. Further randomised clinical trial studies should assess whether these results can be generalised to the FM population at large.
