Cannabis and the primary care physician

Cannabis, in herbal and synthetic forms, is becoming increasingly discussed in and advocated for the management of multiple health conditions. Some of this advocacy comes from both prominent figures and politicians. Alongside this there is significant work being undertaken to bring cannabis and products containing cannabinoids to market. This makes understanding the nature of cannabis, the biological and social pressures associated with its use and the evidence of treatment effectiveness, increasingly important. This paper provides a broad overview of cannabis and its potential uses in medicine.
