Medical properties of Cannabis
In recent years the medical use of Cannabis sativa has received renewed interest, particularly regarding the pain and spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis, but also it's antiinflammatory potential. These have a complex interaction with different cannabinoid receptors, and it is becoming apparent that other components of the plant can change their effects. Cannabinoid receptors have many different functions, and by selectively modifying them, it may be possible to alleviate various disease conditions. With funding from the EU we are conducting a collaborative research project (EU, FP6) to develop a high quality, high value, standardised extracts (preferably low in the psychoactive constituent THC) which are orally active and suitable for clinical use and hope to obtain an extract with a clearly defined chemical and pharmacological profile
