Again, we emphasize the fact that there are currently no published studies specifically discussing the relationship between CBD oil and fibromyalgia. While some media outlets (and even some CBD companies) may make claims that cannabidiol can be used to treat the condition, there is simply no clinical data in place to support such claims.

In one study published in 2011, 28 patients with fibromyalgia received various doses of cannabis. (CBD, of course, is a present cannabinoid in many cannabis strains). After receiving a cannabis dose, patients were then tested for pain levels.

After just a couple of hours of cannabis use, many of the test subjects reported a decrease in pain using VAS scoring for analysis. Within the conclusion of the study, scientists observe that “the use of cannabis was associated with beneficial effects on some fibromyalgia symptoms.”
