UC Berkeley and HelloMD Release Study on Cannabis Use as a Substitute for Opioid and Non-Opioid Based Pain Medication

HelloMD | Jun 28, 2017

HelloMD, one of the nation’s largest community of medical cannabis patients, today announced the results of their landmark study examining the use of cannabis as a substitute for opioid and non-opioid based pain medication. Performed in collaboration with University of California Berkeley, HelloMD surveyed its patient database, collecting survey data from close to 3,000 participants, questioning their usage of cannabis and how it has affected their consumption of opioids.

Drug overdose deaths and opioid-involved deaths continue to increase in the United States. According to the CDC, most drug overdose deaths (more than six out of ten) involve an opioid with 91 Americans dying every day from an opioid overdose, including prescription opioids and heroin.
