The Use of Cannabinoids to Treat Pain

Kevin Boehnke, PhD Research Investigator, Anesthesiology Chronic Pain and Fatigue Research Center University of Michigan.


  1. Smoking all day every day is effective, but, you need to quantify what is right for for you which is directly related to the type and level of pain – I smoke as my illness is related to a TBI and epilepsy 😎

  2. ‘Don’t you just love the ‘risks’ slide. Euphoria’ a ‘risk factor??? Are you for real?! What a friggin joke! Like he said, instead of spending millions in looking for the BENEFITS of cannabis, they have spent billions in trying to justify why they should keep cannabis under the rug and THIS is all they have found? That’s it?! The drug companies who directly or indirectly fund research obviously don’t want this medicine to be out there because it can be grown in your own back yard and undermines the one thing they truly care about – $$$$$!!! Show us the risk factors for almost ALL pharmaceutical drugs, whose abuse and addiction is the 3rd BIGGEST KILLER in USA! I love how these so called doctors speak about ‘harm minimisation’ and then go ahead and prescribe dangerous drugs that are killing people every friggin day, his own slides have shown how cannabis can be used to get FREE of opioid addiction and yet cannabis is still a schedule 1 drug. Wake up and smell the bull shit dude!!! Disgraceful!

  3. Imagine being just a state away from MI where an intractable pain patient is still labeled “criminal”, “addict” and essentially neglected by doctors for treating pain without opioids rather than a success story. With the opioid epidemic as well as the CDC force taper of opioids it’s very important patients are offered alternatives. Hoping to partner with the right folks to bring change for medical marijuana patients across America that need help like myself.

  4. Because of how bad I was from my 5.5 brain injury and how fast and well that THC helped my THOUGHT PROCESS work again I will never stop telling.

    STOP IT FELON FEDERAL AGENT ! Routers CenturyLink4347 & CenturyLink2825.


    I am about HEALING earth and the ADVANCEMENT of HUMANITY.

    I am not about becoming rich !

    I am creating gold to prove that THC restores brain injuries.

    The proceeds I will use to create a self charging generator that will run HYDRO drive with 0 carbon output.

    Then will focus on getting DC electricity from atmosphere !


    I am the CREATORS 'healing' warrior.

    I came forwards with how GOLD and PLATINUM were created to 'prove' my brain injury is being restored with THC so earth can be restored by growing HEMP.

    How else could a 5.5 TBI patient do this ?

    Growing HEMP will restore the 'soil', will restore the 'atmosphere'.

    Will create BIO-DEGRADABLE plastics.


    This is the only way I can get this message out; HEMP plastics is the future for earth.


    I wrecked my Harley not wearing my helmet that stopped my heart 3 times, crushed my chest breaking all my ribs multiple times puncturing both lungs, put me into an 87 day coma waking with a 5.5 brain injury requiring relearning life. Once returning home I tried having my doctor do an MRI of my brain to compare to my wreck. He refused telling me that BIG PHARMA will financially destroy any doctor that proves THC restores brain injuries.

    This upset me so much that I taught myself MOLECULAR SCIENCE and went to the gold shop in KALISPELL MONTANA showing JB how copper transitioned into gold. This got me kicked out and he told 'city council' that I am making FOOLS GOLD from copper pass tests

    Boiling water proves that 'heat' excites MOLECULES allowing ATOMS to escape.

    This is how copper transitions into GOLD and nickel into PLATINUM.

    Earth must be restored by growing HEMP world wide.


    Copper is 179 atoms and melts at around 1400F to 1800F.. You must bring it to a 'boil' that will be at 3500F but the 'oxygen' atom must never make contact or will explode burning on contact. In 72 hours 100 atoms will boil out and melted BORAX will absorb them leaving 79 atoms that is GOLD.

  5. I’ve been dealing with issues with pain medication Iam getting off them and want to get involved into a place to help people I understand the cabnabiss plant and want to help people

  6. I completely agree, watching until about 5 minutes so far as I type this. I myself have chronic pain and arthritis myself, which is terrible because I'm also a recovering opiod addict. Being a former smoker for years, but forced to take a break for a while… now I am a medical patient and love the pain relief benefits I get from it, RSO, TERP SAP AND CONCENTRATES!!! lol thank you for the information

    It's all about the money?
    It was around the 1230's when big pharma was starting out and filled the pockets of the government to make Cannabis illegal and if you smoked it you will kill someone!!!
    Now Bank loads of money can be made and like a movie the criminal always returns to the scene of the crime.

  8. This is why Registered nurse Cannabis consultants are so needed. I am working with clients who are interested in trying cannabis but don't know where to start

  9. Great presentation Kevin, thanks for sharing!

    I've been using CBD to treat chronic pain in my chest/shoulder. The only oil that works for me is the full-spectrum Suver Haze tincture from Mima Remedies. All of their products have been 3rd-party tested, plus they're a Michigan-based business!

  10. You said the gave patients a low dose opiate combined with THC to achieve a similar pain relief effect similar to a stronger painkiller. How does this affect the brain? Would a doctor rather have a patient be under the effect of a lower dose opiate and thc or a stronger opiate?

  11. I ingest rick simpson oil daily. It is the only thing in the world that works against my nerve pain from neuropathy. 10 out of 10 pain, and this is the only thing that worked. I wish i knew what it does to my nerve endings, because its shocking how well it works for that specific type of pain.

  12. I have been using CBD for recovery after intense training sessions. I was sceptical but I have to say I don't get half as sore as I used to. One bit of advice I would give is to get high strength CBD. Im using Dr. Hemp Me's 20% CBD oil and it working wonderfully.
