The majority of state and national governments in North America believe in the healing power of the cannabis plant. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Cancer Society point out two approved drugs to treat nausea in chemotherapy patients: Dronabinol (Marinol), which contains delta-9-THC, and Nabilone (Cesamet), a synthetic THC. But treating chronic pain is its most common usage.
This means strains with a high concentration of THC, or any of the cannabinoids in its range, will be great for relieving physical pain throughout your body. Indica strains are much more potent (and safer, for that matter) than opiate-based medications. Try one of these sativa strains recommended for pain relief by Leafly‘s massive cannabis database.

Cannabis is safer than opium, even though they’re both derived from plants for similar uses.
