Hello dear readers! Today I want to tell you about an exciting study that sheds light on the potential of medical cannabis in pain management.
Introduction: Algea Care and the revolution in pain management
Frankfurt-based telemedicine company Algea Care recently launched an initiative to provide personalized, long-term care to patients who use cannabis as a medicine. The main goal? The relief of neuropathic pain and accompanying sleep disorders.
The study at a glance
- Place and time: Frankfurt am Main, September 11, 2023
- Collaboration: Algea Care and University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf
- Target group: Patients with diagnosed chronic neuropathic pain.
- Results: Significant pain relief was seen after only a few weeks and lasted up to six months. It is also impressive that 91% of respondents reported good tolerability of the therapy, with no severe side effects.
Results in detail

- General condition: 90% of patients reported an improvement in their general condition after the first video consultation. Over a six-month period, 97% of patients reported feeling an improvement in their condition.
