Dr. O'Shaughnessy's Pain Preparation
From an 1843 issue of the Provincial Medical Journal in London, comes this reprint of Dr. William O’Shaughnessy’s report on preparation of hemp in the treatment of pain. “As to the evil sequels so unanimously dwelt on by all writers, these did not appear to me so numerous, so immediate, or so formidable, as many which may be clearly traced to over-indulgence in other powerful stimulants or narcotics-viz, alcohol, opium, or tobacco.”.
