A 2012 literature review published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine examined at least one way that cannabinoids suppress inflammatory and neuropathic pain, by targeting alpha-3 glycine receptors. Citing the difficulty of treating neuropathic pain, the researchers also noted that CBD might be able to address the persistent discomfort associated with a range of diseases.

Neuropathic pain is a component of osteoarthritis. In an animal model of arthritis, researchers showed that when taken prophylactically, CBD can prevent the pain and nerve damage produced by arthritis. These results were published in 2017, also in the academic journal Pain.

Neuropathy is among the symptoms that lupus sufferers commonly experience. LupusCorner, a website for patients with the condition run by health-care technology developer Progentec Diagnostics, conducted an online survey in 2016 asking readers about cannabis use. Of the 781 respondents with lupus who reported using cannabis for various reasons, including as a treatment for their autoimmune disorder, 36% said they were using cannabis, either through smoking, topical application, or another method such as ingesting edibles.

Peripheral neuropathy, or neuropathy for short, is any condition or disease that damages or impairs peripheral nerves, or those located in the extremities, away from the spinal cord and brain.

Word of mouth is a primary factor in people seeking cannabis medicine to soothe their pain, and there are ample studies to support these anecdotal reports. It is unclear whether CBD in the absence of other cannabinoids and terpenes can provide a remedy to neuropathy.
