Dysmenorrhea affects a significant portion of women, with limited treatment options. However, recent research has revealed the potential analgesic effects of medicinal cannabis, making it a promising alternative for pain management.

The paper reviewed various databases and clinical trial websites were searched to identify relevant studies, with 64 papers reviewed, and 20 discarded.

The mechanism and properties of cannabis-based medicines for pain relief, presents a summary of clinical trials investigating medicinal cannabis for pain relief, and highlights the associated side effects. Notably, two-thirds of the clinical trials found positive analgesic outcomes, although nausea, drowsiness, and dry mouth were reported as major side effects. This paper concludes that medicinal cannabis may have significant potential in the management of dysmenorrhea.

As the global medical cannabis market continues to grow, academic and pharmaceutical industries are encouraged to further study the application of medical cannabis in clinical disorders.

Medical Marijuana

Safe & Legal

Throughout my career, I have been dedicated to breaking conventions and helping those in need. My passion for medicine began during my time working in refugee camps in Thailand, and since then, I have made it my mission to provide care and support to those who need it most.

As a pioneer in the field of ophthalmology, I have made numerous contributions and innovations in the field of corneal transplantation and laser surgery.  I am comfortable challenging conventions.

I have seen firsthand the positive impact medical marijuana can have on patients struggling with pain and anxiety. 

My experiences have shown me that medical marijuana can offer significant benefits with minimal side effects, providing patients with an alternative to traditional pharmaceutical medications. Despite its potential, the government’s stance on marijuana is outdated and in need of revision. 

Through my observations, I have seen prescription rates for pain, stress, insomnia, anxiety to name just a few, drastically decrease among patients who have obtained a medical marijuana card, and I believe that this is a testament to its effectiveness.
