Objective: Medical marijuana is often used to relieve pain, but there is a paucity of preclinical studies which evaluate the effects of cannabis components in chronic pain models. Spinal cord injuries (SCI) frequently result in chronic pain which may be significantly attenuated using marijuana and its medicinal extracts. The goal of this study was to evaluate the effects of two cannabis components, Cannabidiol (CBD) and β-caryophyllene (BCP), and their potentially synergistic pain-relieving combination.
