Special Issue "Use of Medicinal Cannabis and Synthetic Cannabinoids"
A special issue of Medicina (ISSN 1010-660X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 November 2019.
We are pleased to launch a “Special Issue” focusing on cannabis, clinical applications and synthetic cannabinoids.
Cannabis remains the most consumed drug of abuse worldwide. At the same time, its medical use in several diseases is growing in importance. Many chronic pathologies, including neurogenic pain that has not found success with standard medical treatments, are benefiting from medical cannabis.
At the same time, in countries where cannabis legalization has not taken place, some manufacturers have started producing and selling "light cannabis": dried flowering tops containing the psychoactive principle Δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) at concentrations lower than 0.2% together with a variable concentration of cannabidiol (CBD). The consumption of this peculiar product is spreading within the European Union.
In this Special Issue, attention will be paid to different aspects and uses not only of phytocannabinoids from cannabis plant, but also synthetic cannabinoids, with particular attention being paid to their diffusion and the serious health threat for consumers.
