Medicinal cannabis strains to manage pain

Cannabis can help to reduce pain due to the two main cannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis flower, namely THC and CBD. They do this, either separately or together, by acting on the CB-1 and CB-2 receptors in our (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.
