It’s October 17th, and Canada has legalized recreational cannabis use.

To be clear, cannabis use and prescription is NOT something incorporated into our practice. Our modalities are our hands and exercising, not pharmaceuticals. BUT, I expect to be receiving a lot of questions regarding the use of marijuana for pain, so here we are, ready as we can be as a non-authority on the subject, to answer.

The point to make very clear is that, despite the praise of the numerous medicinal benefits, cannabis research is still significantly lacking. Its effect on pain, especially, is still something that is greatly debated.

On one hand, we had the Australian study that showed no benefit for chronic pain when used by clients who was ALSO using opiate pain killers. However, that study admits that it didn’t track strains of cannabis that were used or survey the reason why some patients also chose to use it. (Maybe they were in increased pain, anyway?)

On the other hand, we have tons of anecdotal claims about the wonders about pain-relief that marijuana provides. However, we haven’t quantified the effects and have yet to double-blind enough studies to determine how much the placebo effect is factoring in.

Muscle rubs? Well, traditionally, we know that topical analgesics only penetrate a few centimeters into the body’s tissue. Does this throw a wrench into the claims of cannabis creams, or do these new products have different mechanisms that we still haven’t researched into?

This isn’t a political post and we are neither creating a stance either in support or against legislative changes. The cautionary lesson we’re delivering, though, is to always take claims on a product with a grain of salt. We have yet to fully research this topic. There will be more to come, and hopefully all health professionals will continue to stay up-to-date on emerging studies.

But long story short, we really have no clue at this time.

Enjoying this beautiful sunset 🧡💛 Walking along the beach always helps me reduce any stress or anxiety. We are lucky here in Victoria, research finds that those who live by the coast report better physical and mental health than those who don’t! 🌊💪🏼🧠

Staring at the ocean actually changes our brain waves’ frequency and puts us into a mild meditative state. 😌 Plus, that consistent ebbing and flowing you hear de-stimulates our brains. The noises — coupled with the visuals — activate your parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for slowing us down and allowing us to relax.

The smell of the ocean breeze also contributes to your soothed state, which may have something to do with the negative ions in the air that you’re breathing in. 👃🏻These oxygen atoms have an extra electron and occur in places like waterfalls and the ocean.
