Cannabis has been used therapeutically for thousands of years. Although Cannabis was illegal in most of the world during the 20th century, it has recently seen a revival in medicinal applications, and legalization has served to increase its use in medicine. Cannabis has been noted for its sedative, anticonvulsant, and pain-relieving qualities, and its potential benefit for treating psychiatric disorders. The demand for Cannabis for medicinal use requires standardization: the chemical compositions of Cannabis can vary widely, and adulteration may be problematic. For this Special Issue, we invite original research and timely reviews on the chemical compositions of Cannabis, variations in composition, potential contaminants and adulterants, as well as the molecular aspects of pharmacology and toxicology.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
