The review of 24 reports evaluates the use of medicinal cannabis for psychiatric, movement and neurodegenerative disorders including; Alzheimer’s disease, anorexia nervosa, anxiety, dementia, dystonia, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), psychosis and Tourette syndrome. The available evidences suggest there is a potential benefit of cannabinoids for those diseases however further research is required to confirm its efficacy.
Pre-clinical studies documenting the anti-cancer effects of THC and its success in inhibiting cancer growth and spread have been on the rise.

Could non-psychoactive cannabinoids found in cannabis and hemp be the answer to treating cancer instead?
