Cannabis and their active constituents, cannabinoids, have been used for their medicinal properties for millennia. Unfortunately, the advent of synthetic pharmaceuticals and a changing geo-political climate have pushed the medical use of cannabinoids back into obscurity leaving us with mostly inconsistent or anecdotal evidence of their therapeutic value. Nonetheless, beneficial effects of cannabinoids have been described for the following diseases:
Contrary to conventional medication, cannabinoids are virtually free of adverse effects and absolutely non-toxic. With such a diverse and impressive list of therapeutic effects, the chemistry of cannabinoids, the range of their biological effects and their therapeutic potential need to be re-assessed.
We aim to revive the historic use of cannabinoids in medical practice, pharmaceutical products and food supplements and to re-introduce cannabinoids to the public with a fresh and professional approach.
