Medicinal cannabis strains to help manage pain

Cannabis can help to reduce pain through its two main cannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis flower, THC and CBD. They do this, both separately and together, by acting on the CB-1 and CB-2 receptors in the central nervous system. These receptors can influence and partly regulated the feelings of pain in the four major pain models, which include acute, chronic, neuropathic and cancer pain. Besides THC and CBD, other compounds like CBC and the terpenes Linalool and Myrcene also seem to have pain relieving properties and help each other to enhance their ability to reduce pain through the Entourage Effect.
