A primer to medicinal cannabis – an introductory text to the therapeutic use of cannabis.

Access to reliable, evidence-based information still hinders the prescribing of pharmaceutical-quality cannabis for therapeutic use. This text discusses the therapeutic use of cannabis. That means we are not talking about pot, marijuana, grass, or dope for recreational use to get ‘high’. It focuses strictly on medicinal cannabis. It is meant to give healthcare professionals, regulators and patients insights into the medical and scientific aspects of Cannabis sativa L. and how this plant fits in the chain of therapeutic options.

A Clinical Primer on Cannabis

A clinical primer – A guide to the rational use of cannabis-based medicines.

Cannabis-based medicines are increasingly being made available on a global level. It is important that prescribers, pharmacists and nurses are equipped with practical, evidence-based guidance to support decision-making, and to improve communication of the benefits and risks of these medicines with their patients. This clinical primer draws on clinical research, clinical observations, and professional experiences to provide useful, real-world insights to the rational use of cannabis-based medicines.
