A recent study published and released by the American Medical Association showed that cannabis use among people with chronic conditions ranging from pain to insomnia had experienced “significant improvements” in their quality of life that was (get this) “sustained over time.”
The study involved over 3,000 people and asked them how cannabis was impacting their life every 45 days for over two years. The results were pretty astounding:
After administering the survey to the patients about once every 45 days, for a total of 15 follow ups, the study found that participants who were consuming cannabis reported average improvements of 6.6-18.31 points on that 100-point scale, depending on the category.
The study wasn’t just focused on the typical pain suffers but also included non-cancer-related pain, insomnia, and general anxiety, which is great news for the nearly 31% of adults who experience an anxiety disorder at some point in their lives.
Those of you reading this who have been using cannabis either medically or recreationally probably aren’t that surprised by the results, but it’s still great that big accredited institutions are finally waking up to this fact because the more news like this that’s published, the more people will probably be open to trying cannabis for the first time, which we think is a great development overall.
In case you are new to the world of pragmatic cannabis use and are still on the fence on whether or not you want to try the sticky icky, just know that studies now have shown that cannabis can:
- Improve Your Overall Sex Life
- Increase Your Night Vision
- Reduce Overall Perceived Fatigue
- Helps Control Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders
Given cannabis is still technically federally illegal, it’s surprising to have even the number of studies we do have, but as more states push for legalization, we’re optimistic the good news will continue to flow in regard to potential therapeutic applications for cannabis.
