Cannabis Medicinal Use
Medicinal use of Cannabis
Cannabinoids and Cancer
The use of cannabinoids in treating the side effects of cancer chemotherapy is more widely-studied than many other potential therapeutic applications, and a number of clinical studies have taken place investigating the use of THC and synthetic cannabinoids as anti-emetic agents. Two preparations have been licensed for use in clinical treatment either in the UK or elsewhere, including dronabinol (synthetic THC) and Nabilone (a novel synthetic cannabinoid).
Cannabis and Migraine
Cannabis was the treatment of choice for migraine in the last century [i] , and modern reports [ii] have echoed the traditional view.
