In this course you will learn about how medical marijuana can help those who suffer from pain and help those patients to reduce the amount of traditional prescription, pharmaceutical medications including opioids in managing their pain.

You will learn about pain disorder categories and pain scales. Did you know that intractable pain is a severe, constant pain that is not curable by any known means and causes a bed or house-bound state and early death if not adequately treated, usually with opioids and/or interventional procedures?  Medical Marijuana is recognized by many legal states as a viable option to patients who suffer from intractable pain.

Chronic pain, a different category, afflicts more than 40% of the population at any given time and is usually defined as any persistent or intermittent pain that lasts more than 3 months. Many times topical marijuana treatments can be a viable option for chronic pain suffers. Topicals and how topicals work is discussed in this course.

Also included will be a discussion on research and doctors working with medical cannabis, and an introduction to Dr. Mark Ware. Also covered in this module are traditional medicines used for pain management, opioid abuse, and an infographic regarding opioid abuse statistics in the US.

Additional white paper research, definitions and statistics related to pain and pain management will be presented.

Finally, you will see a patient story video and learn how medical cannabis helps her through her day to day struggles.
