James McKoy, MD, Chief of Rheumatology at Kaiser Permanente in Honolulu, Hawaii, stated in the Dec. 2000 issue of Arthritis Today:

“I have one patient with rheumatoid arthritis who uses it for pain and, other than getting a ‘high,’ it hasn’t reduced any of her needs for DMARDs [disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs], NSAIDs [non- steroidal anti inflammatory drugs], prednisone or Vicodin.

I see no change in her complaints of pain.”
