Is Cannabis a Good Pain Relief Alternative to Opioid Medicine?
Opioid addiction is a very big problem that plagues our country no matter the state or social class. Lately there has been alot research that cannabis and hemp products aid in alleviating pain. Many people have become addicted from prescribed opioids for a temporary pain condition. In these instances maybe natural non-addictive products could be a solution. Do you think if Cannabis was legal, pain sufferers would then choose Cannabis over Opioids? And will this then solve the Opioid crisis?
The Pain Relief comes from a Natural Drug found in the cannabis Plant family called CBD,Cannabidiol and with TONS of research has been found to have NO side affects. Hemp(NON THC) is becoming MORE popular because there is no HIGH. THC is NOT the drug that has the medicinal Health Benefits!!

Although there maybe some validity to Cannabis being an alternative to Opioids for pain relief. The Opioid crisis we are having in USA leading to death of 50,000+ Americans per Year due to Opioids, are due to the structural problems of USA, one of which is that 100-Million Americans either have NO Healthcare or affordable Healthcare, because USA lacks even the most basic of Social services which is Government run Universal Socialized Healthcare (NHS), something so essential that all Developed Nations have it, including Israel the beloved Nation of Republicans, Obama Democrats & the right-wing Media.
So if you have NO Healthcare, or Healthcare that you can afford due to exorbitant cost of Deductibles, Co-Pays, Medicine, etc. ripoffs, so that Wall Street can make Trillions more off Healthcare, damn be the American people, then of course you will resort to any sort of unsound dangerous medicine to alleviate your Pain, such as Opioid. Which horrible facts Trump as latest tool of Wall Street champions 😡
There is actually a very solid, irrefutable way, to answer this question. That is they have made Pot, Cannabis, legal in Colorado. So check out the number of deaths by Opioid Medicine in Colorado vs rest of the Nation and see if they are lower or higher, by per Capita basis of course. If they are lower and by a substantial margin, then you/we have our answer to this question.
Now that is a smart answer 😉
