THC may not help everyone

Posted: Updated:

A compound found in marijuana can reduce pain but a new study finds not in everyone.

Researchers at the University of Oxford gave men a pill containing the compound THC.

Only half the patients said they felt less pain and scans showed, in those men there was less pain activity in the brain.

Doctors said the next step is to figure out why THC isn't effective on others.
