The researchers said:
“Recent studies have demonstrated the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids to treat pain, yet none have compared the analgesic effectiveness of smoked marijuana to orally administered tetrahydrocannabinol (THC; dronabinol).”
The researchers studied 30 patients, 15 male and 15 female. In one of the experiments, the patients stuck their hands in freezing water, it was found that more people who took the marijuana pill felt the pain later than those who didn’t.
