Course Summary

Cannabis species and subspecies have been used medicinally for over 5,000 years. In the United States, the regulation of cannabis as a Schedule I drug has hampered the study of cannabis and its medicinal uses. The 1996 legalization of marijuana in California was followed by more states including the District of Columbia. Consequently, recent reviews and studies related to medicinal marijuana have been done, specifically on whether cannabis is effective for medicinal purposes, such as the treatment of nausea and vomiting, appetite stimulation in chronic diseases and pain, as well as other health conditions reviewed in this course.
