Description

Description

Medical cannabis is emerging as an effective treatment option for the management of a variety of symptoms and conditions, including pain, nausea, vomiting, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and insomnia. However, the lack of quality scientific evidence validating its efficacy for these indications has created barriers to its widespread adoption into regular clinical practice. Advancing the adoption of medical cannabis in the clinical setting can be achieved in three steps. First, extensive clinical research is required to further our understanding of the intricate interactions between cannabinoids, terpenes, and the endocannabinoid system. Secondly, patient reported outcomes must also be collected as a means of validating clinical research findings, and to gain valuable insight on the patient experience with medical cannabis treatment. Finally, this information will enable the development of highly efficacious, indication-specific cannabis products that, following clinical validation, will offer physicians and patients different dosage forms with specific therapeutic properties, thereby furthering the clinical utility of medical cannabis.
