Study Shows Fewer Opioids Prescribed in States that Allow Medical Cannabis

A new study shows a 20 percent decrease in opioid prescriptions in states that allow medical cannabis, leading researchers to conclude that cannabinoids offer a “potentially attractive” option for pain management, according to an article in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

The study, conducted by researchers at Columbia University’s Irving Medical Center, focused on opioids prescribed by orthopedic surgeons, who are among the largest group of opioid prescribers. In states that allow the use of medical cannabis, doctors prescribed 144,000 fewer daily doses of opioid medication each year, as compared with states that prohibit its use.

The authors note that this is a “statistically significant reduction” in the prescription of hydrocodone, oxycodone, fentanyl, morphine, methadone and other opioids.

Given that opioid prescriptions and abuse “remain a significant national concern,” the authors note that “cannabinoids offer a potentially attractive nonopioid analgesic option for orthopaedic patients.”

If you’re using prescription opioids for pain relief, ask your doctor if you would benefit from a natural alternative: medical cannabis. Then come to the Slater Center, where our compassionate and knowledgeable patient advisors will help you find the best cannabis medicine for your needs.
