    Cannabis and opioids might not be the best treatment for chronic pain

    Cannabis and opioids might not be the best treatment for chronic pain


    A new study's found media attention focuses almost entirely on drug treatments when it comes to chronic pain.

    Lead researcher Dr Hemakumar Devan says almost no attention is given to non-drug treatments.

    He says the best evidence is for non-drug treatments such as mindfulness, relaxation, and exercise.
