Fibromyalgia Patients Continue To Substitute CBD For Addictive Pharmaceuticals With Reports Showing Improved Health
According to data published in The Journal of Pain, those suffering from fibromyalgia (FM) are substituting CBD products in place of opioids, NSAIDs, and other prescription medications. In a survey of 878 fibromyalgia patients by the University of Michigan Medical School, 72% of respondents mentioned using CBD products instead of other medications, specifically opioids, NSAIDs, benzodiazepines, and gabapentanoids.
