Make Pain VANISH with Cannabis Magic

Different combinations of cannabinoids (THC & CBD), and terpenes help us find the specific strain that’s right for you.

October 2, 2023

Puff The Pain Away

No one deserves to live with acute or chronic pain. With recent advances in cannabis research, you may not have to. Surterra Wellness’s own Manny Alfinez recently sat down with Marc Matoza of Marijuana Med Today to talk about the incredible results cannabis is showing for pain management. Let’s look at some key points:

Clinical studies have shown that cannabis

  • May treat chronic and acute pain as effectively as OTC medicines
  • Carries no risk of a fatal overdose, unlike most pharmaceuticals
  • Shows no evidence of kidney or stomach damage, unlike many OTC pain meds
  • May even be an exit opportunity for those with opioid addictions

The Science of Cannabis

Everyone’s body is different, so everyone needs unique treatment. Fortunately, cannabis isn’t just Sativa vs. Indica anymore – different combinations of cannabinoids (THC & CBD), and terpenes help us find the specific strain that’s right for you.


THC is psychoactive and gets you high, while CBD lessens THC’s intensity and may even counter. These compounds target and activate the body’s receptors, allowing A to do their thing


The key to pain management, terpenes give many plants their scents and flavors. Each terpene affects the body in different ways. Let’s see how!

Terpene Time

Here are some of the top terpenes for pain management and how they may affect the body:

  • Limonene: anti-inflammatory, relieves anxiety, supports digestion
  • Pinene: analgesic, improves memory, anti-inflammatory
  • Myrcene: antibiotic, analgesic, muscle-relaxant
  • Caryophyllene: anti-inflammatory, analgesic, may augment some chemotherapies
  • Eucalyptol: antifungal, analgesic, reduces blood pressure

I'm always super satisfied with the service, my product, and the persistent consistency that this dispo has been providing, where others had been lacking. They're always friendly, transparent about pricing, keeping me updated on deals, and they almost always run sales, which means I can save money on quality bud.
