The aim of this cohort study with a 1-year follow-up conducted in seven clinical centres was to assess the risk of adverse events related to cannabis when used in the treatment of chronic pain. The results show that medicinal cannabis has a reasonable safety profile and can help with pain management, quality of life and cognitive function.
