Medicinal Cannabis as a Treatment for Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes muscle pain and fatigue. People with Fibromyalgia have “tender points” on the body. Tender points are specific places on the neck, shoulders, back, hips, arms, and legs. These points hurt when pressure is put on them.

People with fibromyalgia may also have other symptoms, such as:

  • Trouble sleeping
  • Morning stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Tingling or numbness in hands and feet
  • Problems with thinking and memory (sometimes called “fibro fog”)

The primary goal of the ECS is homeostasis — helping your body maintain a stable internal environment.When the endocannabinoid system is out of whack, health suffers.
