Chronic pain is one of the most popular conditions that medical marijuana is used to treat. According to the CDC, 50 million Americans, or 20%, suffer from chronic pain and deal with it daily.

Chronic pain covers a wide variety of medical conditions, so it is one of the most common qualifying conditions among patients in South Dakota.

How Can Medical Marijuana Help Treat Chronic Pain?

Those who use cannabis to treat their chronic pain report that they have more energy compared to when using opioids; as many of these medications do little to help their pain. All they do is make them tired and unable to do daily activities.
