For today's weed news we go to the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs.

The Journal of Psychoactive Drugs just published the results of a recent study that investigated whether people may be able to replace sleeping pills and prescription pain meds with cannabis treatment instead.

After analyzing 1000 participants in a state with legal cannabis in the United States of America, scientists concluded that 65% of the participants were consuming cannabis to relieve pain. Out of that 65%, 8 out of 10 reported cannabis as being "very or extremely helpful."

The researchers also reported that 88% of those using cannabis to treat some type of pain, were actually successfully able to get off of prescription opioid medication thanks to the Herb!

"People develop tolerance to opioids, which means that they require higher doses to achieve the same effect. This means that chronic pain patients often increase their dose of opioid medications overtime, which in turn increases the risk of overdose," wrote Professor Julia Arnsten from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

Apart from those taking opioids for pain, it is not uncommon for people suffering from the inability to sleep, to develop addictions to sleeping aids, both the over-the-counter and the prescription type as well. Many sleeping pills tend leave people groggy, increase their chances of sleepwalking (Ambien), and can have a substantial impact on the quality of their daytime activities. The above-mentioned study also found that a significant amount of the study's participants successfully began consuming cannabis to help them sleep, thus reducing the amount of sleeping pills they take.

So basically, this study provides the Cannabis Community real scientific evidence to uphold what we stoners have thought all along ... Cannabis relieves pain and helps people sleep.

I am glad to see that the amount of research focused around cannabis and its many benefits is rapidly growing. I feel like you could have asked any Stoner 20 years ago if they think that cannabis can help them sleep and they could have told you that that is for sure the case. But it's great to see that nowadays we're finally getting to the point where we have scientists giving us clear evidence what Weed smokers have always known.

And for now, that's what's up with pain, sleep, cannabis, and the Journal of psychoactive drugs!
