Special Issue "Pharmaceutical Drugs Based on Cannabis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
Interests: Medicinal plants; medical cannabis; anti-inflammatory activity; anti-cancer activity; neuronal activity
Interests: Deep invistigation of chemical compositions of natural biomaterials, structural modification and creation of compounds, cannabis chemical studies and manipulation
Cannabis is being used by millions of patients worldwide, but despite this frequent use, the composition of cannabis-based products is usually not completely known, the active molecules and their optimal combination are insufficiently characterized and, moreover, the mode of action of the combined compositions is unstudied. To substantially improve cannabis medical use, molecular characterization of the content and active compositions should be conducted for each and every medical condition being treated by cannabis.
In this Special Issue of Molecules, we aim to highlight the need to specify cannabis use in terms of indication and active compounds. Studies detailing different aspects of cannabis medical use that are related to the activity of specific molecules and specific medical care are welcome. The collection of these articles may revolutionize the science behind cannabis-based medical care.
