Scientists Develop Cannabis Pain Patches for Fibromyalgia
According to a press release from Cannabis Science, a firm that specializes in the creation of marijuana-based therapeutics, the company has developed two new cannabis-based medications for patients suffering from fibromyalgia and diabetic neuropathy nerve pain.
How They Work
The medications, which are essentially cannabis-based painkillers, will be dosed into the patient’s bloodstream through transdermal adhesive patches on the skin.
The transdermal method is considered ideal for patients because it can pinpoint exact dosages better than other traditional methods such as oral, topical, intravenous and intramuscular. It also facilitates treating a particular part of the body that is afflicted by the disorders, as opposed to the whole body.
