“Previous research on cancer-related pain has focused on people with advanced disease, however there is a large and rapidly growing population surviving many years on cancer-cancer treatments, an insurmountable barrier to productive and rewarding family living at all stages of cancer and friends. Unfortunately, current pain management options are largely ineffective or cause even more harmful side effects, so new research is urgently needed to find better therapies. I am excited to be actively involved in the CBD Science Group’s goal of providing an effective and safer medicinal cannabis solution find to alleviate the suffering of cancer-related pain patients. “

The NICE guidelines on medicinal cannabis found that to date there was no evidence of chronic pain in cancer patients, making research into the use of cannabinoids as alternative pain relievers very timely. Also, given the lack of evidence of effectiveness and significant evidence of the long-term harm from opioids, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has advised against the use of opioids in people with chronic primary pain and is actively promoting research into alternatives Solutions.
In addition, the ongoing consequences of COVID-19 affect oncologists and clinicians across the UK. The UK has been reported to be experiencing an emerging cancer crisis after new numbers recently showed more than 300,000 people had missed checks for the disease since the pandemic began. Fear that more patients than ever will go untreated for their cancer and opioid prescriptions will continue to skyrocket as the NHS still fails to provide suitable alternatives.
There are an estimated 3 million cancer patients in the UK with 367,000 new diagnoses per year. From this population it has been shown that the prevalence of pain after curative treatment is 39.3%; 55.0% during cancer treatment; and 66.4% for advanced, metastatic, or terminal disease. With millions of patients going untreated for cancer-related pain, it is clear that there is an urgent need for evidence of cannabis-based drugs as an alternative to successful pain management.
