Medical Cannabis: A Story of Rediscovery
Ever since research began that led to the identification of the primary components of cannabis (THC, CBD), knowledge has only continued to grow, giving rise to the continued development of medications. Meanwhile, use of the non-transformed plant has extended to the treatment of a substantial number of symptoms and illnesses.
Whereas the plant’s properties for treating pain, glaucoma, or a lack of appetite are well-known, its contributions to new treatments for infantile epilepsy, rheumatism, Crohn’s disease, and brain cancer (glioma) suggest its rich therapeutic potential.
Although thousands of patients of all ages have access to cannabinoid-based treatments, there are still many psychological and legal barriers to its use throughout the world. However, ongoing scientific research is promising and seems to herald better care for patients who would like access to these treatments.
