neuropathy. Te body’s endocannabinoid system, found in the brain, organs, connec- tive tissues and immune cells, is one of its natural pain-coping mechanisms, and is most affected by cannabis. Mitch Earleywine, Ph.D., associate


professor of clinical psychology at the State University of New York at Albany, author of Understanding Marijuana: A New Look at the Scientific Evidence and a member of the advisory board of the National Organi- zation for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, is an advocate of medical marijuana. While regarding it as helpful for chronic pain with little risk of addiction, he concludes it’s “great for a small handful of conditions, but it’s not the cure-all that some are suggesting.” CBD oil: Dr. Hyla Cass, of Marina del


Rey, California, an integrative physician expert in psychiatry and addiction recovery, and author of Te Addicted Brain and How to Break Free, is more comfortable with CBD (cannabidiol) oil. It’s a hemp product legal in 45 states, provided it qualifies in non-addic- tive levels of THC, the component of canna- bis that induces euphoria (see TeCannabis Industry.org/state-marijuana-policies-map). Some CBD oils contain trace amounts


of THC, not enough to induce a “high” or contribute to addiction, but there are also products that contain no THC at all. By definition, hemp’s THC content is less than 0.3 percent versus marijuana’s 5 to 35 percent. “CBD oil won’t make you high,” says


Cass. “In and of itself, CBD oil is very potent. You don’t need the THC for pain relief. Tere’s no need to go down the slip- pery slope of using an illegal substance.” In addition to CBD oil’s pain-relieving


effects on the endocannabinoid system, says Cass, it’s a powerful anti-inflamma- tory, which contributes to its effectiveness in addressing the underlying causes of chronic pain, confirmed by University of South Carolina research. Kathleen Barnes is the author of numer-

Drumming Out Drugs


Music, specifically drumming, stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s own morphine-like painkillers. Group drumming can help people withdrawing from addictive drugs, especially those having particular difficulty in conven- tional addiction programs, reports a University of Arizona at Tempe study published in the American Journal of Public Health. Other supportive studies are listed at
