Herbal cannabis use in patients labeled as fibromyalgia is associated with negative psychosocial parameters
Arthritis Care & Research , 06/22/2012
Ste–Marie PA et al. – Cannabinoids were used by 13% of patients referred with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia (FM). The association of herbal cannabis use with negative psychosocial parameters raises questions regarding the motive for this self–medication practice. Although cannabinoids may offer some therapeutic effect, caution regarding any recommendation should be exercised pending clarification of general health and psychosocial problems, especially for those self–medicating.
