The disorder manifests itself as pain, itching, vibrating, temperature, or moving in the limb that is no longer present. The symptoms of the PLF usually occur right after the surgery and are most common among war veterans and victims of car accidents.

During the experiment, the subject with a 32-year history of PLP reported a significant reduction of pain (40%), enhanced sleep quality, and overall wellbeing improvement within two months of using medical cannabis. The proportion of CBD to THC was 20:1. The study has also reported that a subject used to consume opium-based medications before cannabis. While reducing pain, they have impaired his overall life quality.
