Cannabinoids in Medical Practice

Abstract
Many patients with chronic medical illnesses use cannabinoids. There are two FDA-approved cannabinoid products,whereas medical marijuana purchased at legal dispensaries is not FDA regulated and may contain uncertain concentrations of various compounds. Cannabinoids have shown efficacy in treating chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting, poor appetite in advanced HIV, some pain states, and multiple sclerosis-associated spasticity. Recreational cannabinoid use has many known potential serious harms. Physicians should be knowledgeable
about cannabinoids and should inquire with their patients about cannabinoid use. Practical suggestions for clinical approaches are included.
