EDDIEKIRK posted a blog entry in ommppayitforwardby Mark Miller Thu, Dec 08, 2011 12:29 pm more: headline news, medical news, medical marijuana, science Despite marijuana’s ability to provide substantial pain relief while being physically non-addictive and non-toxic, it has been opiates – a toxic substance with a high potential for abuse – that have been accepted by the medical mainstream for years. However, a newly released groundbreaking study published in December’s Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics that was conducted by Dr. Donald Abrams at the University of California-San Francisco indicates that chronic pain patients experience increased relief when their opiate-only treatment is augmented by vaporized cannabis. This research is the first to analyze the interaction of opiates with cannabinoids on human subjects; twenty-one chronic pain patients currently treated with long-acting morphine or oxycodone were also administered controlled amounts of cannabis, with the initial objective being to determine if the cannabinoids increased the efficacy of the opiates. Specifically to ascertain whether inhalation of vaporized cannabis changed the level of the opiates in the bloodstream, and if so, whether they increased or decreased opiate plasma levels.
