However, they didn't report less pain, indicating the pain relief properties were independent of the psychoactive effects," said Dr. Wasan, lead author of the study, and director of clinical pain research at Brigham and Women's Hospital. "We discovered that both the synthetic cannabinoid medicines we studied and marijuana have similar psychoactive properties and suggestive of an addiction potential."
