Potential Therapeutic Uses
A growing body of clinical evidence is now showing that medical cannabis may have analgesic,
appetite-modulatory, immunosuppressant, anti-emetic, neuroleptic or antineoplastic effects
among other therapeutic benefits. The variety that will work best for your patient depends
on many factors – ultimately the right match will depend on the patient’s individual physical
and mental responses to the multiple variations of the medication.
Health Canada has published a document entitled ‘Information for Health Care Professionals’ in which they discuss the potential therapeutic uses for medicinal cannabis:

The Endocannabinoid System
Cannabinoids exert many of their pharmacological effects by interacting with and modulating
the human endocannabinoid system. This integrated system is comprised of a family of
cannabinoid receptors, their endogenous activators (ligands), enzymes and transporters.
There are two types of cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2. In addition, cannabinoids interact with other important neurotransmitter and neuromodulatory systems as well as TRP Channels.
The far-reaching pharmacology of cannabinoids explains why they hold such promise in diverse therapeutic areas.
