  • Effect of Palmitoylethanolamide on Reducing Opioid Consumption for Below Knee Fracture Fixation

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA), a non-psychoactive cannabis compound derived from peanuts, egg yolks, and soybeans, is an Endogenous FA Amide produced in the body as a biological response and a repair mechanism in chronic inflammation and chronic pain. In animal and clinical trials, PEA has also shown evidence of pain reduction, sleep improvement, and increased joint mobility and function with minimal side-effects. The study team intends to study whether the inclusion of PEA in conjunction with standard post-surgical medications can reduce pain and inflammation while decreasing the number of opioids needed.
