It's not a very strong pain reliever compared to prescription pain meds.It's more of an anti-emetic (controls nausea)but again there are better ones available by prescription.Plus it's not legal most places.

for some people it eases the pain for almost all symptoms, for others not so much. for me personally its been more helpful regarding digestive symptoms and joint pain. for severe pain i would depend more on prescription drugs, but like i said, it affects everyone differently so you would have to experiment.
