In the United States (U.S.) today, the prevalence of pain conditions is high, with an estimated 25 million adults experiencing pain lasting three months or more (Nahin, 2015). Among adults with persistent pain, co-occurring, complex symptoms such as anxiety (de Heer et al., 2014), depression (Hooten, 2016; Rayner et al., 2016), and poor-quality sleep (Finan, Goodin,&Smith, 2013) can exacerbate the pain experience and negatively impact quality of life (Kroenke et al., 2013). Many adults with persistent pain who use opioid medications for pain management also report using cannabis to treat pain and related symptoms (Sext...
