Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the discovery of cannabinoids in the middle of the 20th century, scientists have been searching for their physiological targets and the medicinal benefits of these compounds. Beyond the psychoactive effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and related compounds, the anti-inflammatory action of cannabidiol (CBD) and other Cannabis metabolites have become increasingly important in recent times. Generally, the Cannabis plant provides a treasure trove of diverse natural compounds and metabolites with rather unique activity profiles and potential applications. This Special Issue of Metabolites, "Cannabis Metabolites", will focus on recent discoveries and novel technologies for the characterization, synthesis, and application of cannabinoids and other Cannabis metabolites, especially for medicinal purposes. Reviews and manuscripts dealing with other challenging issues in the field of Cannabis constituents are also welcome.
