The cannabis plant has a long and sometimes difficult history. Currently there is significant legislation in place in many countries that makes it difficult to understand the potential benefit of cannabis to support a number of health conditions. Even where there is legislation in support of cannabis use for medicinal purposes, access for a wide range of potential patients is still prohibited. To enable researchers to present a case for the positives and understand any possible risks, we need to both create a scientific appreciation for the complexity of cannabis as a medicine and to reduce the stigma that has become attached to the notion of cannabis as a treatment for a number of conditions. The scientific literature is constantly evolving in this area. However, there is still a significant amount of contradiction and lack of consensus in relation to cannabis as a medicine.
This Special Issue aims to bring together researchers across disciplines to present research that expands our understanding of cannabis as a medicine. Further, it will explore the barriers to accepting the potential benefits of both synthetic and phytocannabiniods as treatment options for patients within a sensible legislative model.
