DECLARED OF HEALTH INTEREST SA301A/2017/13-5

The importance of cannabis is not only limited to the damaging effects associated with the consumption, but also to the prospective effects of its derivatives.

Several cannabis derivatives are already on the market and some therapeutic indications have already been established (its use as antiemetics or antispasmodics). Due to the ubiquity of cannabinoid receptors in our bodies, especially in the brain, many other clinical indications are being explored nowadays; therefore, new products are expected to be added to this therapeutic product range in the years to come.

Concerning the administration of cannabis derivatives by inhalation, there are little scientific evidence currently proving its benefits.
