In recent years, cannabis research has moved beyond its use as an illegal recreational drug to consider its potential as a therapeutic substance, particularly in serious chronic illnesses such as multiple sclerosis. Although there is a considerable body of primary literature relating to the medicinal use of cannabis, much of the published work concerns anecdotal reports. This new title describes all the current research findings relating to the medicinal use of cannabis and cannabinoids, and reports the latest information on the pharmacology, formulation, safety and efficacy of cannabis as a therapeutic agent. Written by experts, this is an essential reference for pharmacists, doctors, pharmacologists and all other healthcare professionals with an interest in pain control.
