Editor’s Note: Hi everyone, I am the Managing Editor of Fibromyalgia News Today. We very much appreciate all the comments made so far on this article, and the fact that it’s creating a lot of buzz in the community.
However, let me remind you that we are strictly a news and information website about fibromyalgia, we do not provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatments.
Please talk to your physician regarding any doubts you might have about your condition.
As our writer, Carolina Henriques, rightfully pointed out yesterday, these new transdermal adhesive patches are still under development and are not available to the general public yet.
For more information about the patches, please visit the Cannabis Science company. Thank you.
The team here at Fibromyalgia News Today has been overwhelmed by the response to an article we ran concerning the development of cannabis pain patches for people with chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.
The patches, which are not yet available for purchase or prescription, release medicinal cannabis directly to the skin which will deliver round-the-clock pain relief and could mean freedom from the traditional pharmaceutical options that fibromyalgia patients currently have to take.
With more than 1,500 shares on our Facebook page and 20,000 hits on the article in just four days, this is obviously something the Fibro community is eagerly looking forward to. Access to the product may take some time depending on where you live, and if the area you live in has legalized cannabis-based medicines.
Cannabinoids have been proven to help with pain relief and have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years. With current legislation concerning cannabis-based medicines changing on a day-to-day basis in the U.S. and around the world, we can only hope that it won’t be too long before this type of natural treatment is available for everyone who suffers from the chronic everyday pain that fibromyalgia brings. Read the full article about the cannabis pain relief patches here.
As of right now, we don’t know when the patches will be released for general sale or where they will be available but as soon as we find out, we’ll be sure to let you know.
