Cannabis-Based Oral Formulations for Medical Purposes : Preparation, Quality and Stability, Francesca Baratta et al., 2021

Cannabis-Based Oral Formulations for Medical Purposes : Preparation, Quality and Stability Francesca Baratta, Marco Simiele, Irene Pignata, Lorenzo Ravetto Enri, Antonio D’Avolio, Riccardo Torta, Anna De Luca, Massimo Collino and Paola Brusa Pharmaceuticals, 2021, 14, 171, 1-13. Doi : 10.3390/ph14020171   Abstract : Current legislation in Italy provides that medical Cannabis may be administered orally or by inhalation. One of the fundamental criteria for the administration of oral formulations is that they deliver a known consistent quantity of the active ingredients to ensure uniform therapies leading to the optimisation of the risks/benefits. In 2018, our group developed an improved Cannabis oil extraction technique. The objective of [...]

Cannabis : From Cultivar to Chemovar II—A Metabolomics. Approach to Cannabis Classification, Arno Hazekamp et al, 2016,

Cannabis : From Cultivar to Chemovar II—A Metabolomics. Approach to Cannabis Classification Arno Hazekamp, Katerina Tejkalova, and Stelios Papadimitriou Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, 2016, Volume 1, (1) Doi : 10.1089/can.2016.0017 Abstract Introduction : There is a large disparity between the ‘‘cultural’’ language used by patients using cannabis for selfmedication and the ‘‘chemical’’ language applied by scientists to get a deeper understanding of cannabis effects in laboratory and clinical studies. The distinction between Sativa and Indica types of cannabis, and the different biological effects associated with them, is a major example of this. Despite the widespread use of cannabis by selfmedicating patients, scientific studies are yet [...]

That which we call Indica, by any other name would smell as sweet. An essay on the history of the term Indica and the taxonomical conflict between the monotypic and polytypic views of Cannabis, Jacob L. Erkelens, Arno Hazekamp, 2014

That which we call Indica, by any other name would smell as sweet. An essay on the history of the term Indica and the taxonomical conflict between the monotypic and polytypic views of Cannabis Jacob L. Erkelens, Arno Hazekamp Bedrocan BV, The Netherlands Cannabinoids, 2014, 9, (1), 9-15. What’s in a name ? An interesting feature of the worldwide subculture devoted to cannabis is the endless number of names given to its preparations (marijuana, pot, weed, kiff, bhang..). On top of that, there is a continuously grow-ing list of names used to describe different varieties and strains of the cannabis plant. As a result of [...]

Minor Cannabinoids of Cannabis sativa L., Fabian Thomas & Oliver Kayser, 2019

Minor Cannabinoids of Cannabis sativa L. Fabian Thomas & Oliver Kayser Journal of Medical Science, 2019, 88, (3), 141-149. Doi : 10.20883/jms.367   ABSTRACT Cannabinoids from Cannabis sativa L. play an important role as natural products in clinics. The major cannabinoids compromise tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) and its decarboxylated analogs. In this review, we focus on often neglected minor cannabinoids and discuss biosynthetic and chemical degradation routes to other neglected cannabinoids in Cannabis sativa starting from THCA, CBDA and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA). Based on the literature, patents and scientific reports, essential routes for the chemical modifi cation of cannabinoids are discussed to explain [...]

L’Italie classe les fleurs de chanvre parmi les plantes médicinales, Aurélien BERNARD, NEWSWEED.fr, 8 octobre 2020

L’Italie classe les fleurs de chanvre parmi les plantes médicinales Aurélien BERNARD NEWSWEED.fr, 8 octobre 2020 https://www.newsweed.fr/italie-classe-fleurs-chanvre-plantes-medicinales/   Un arrêté du Ministère italien des Politiques agricoles, alimentaires et forestières publié en août a classé la fleur de chanvre à usage extractif (« canapa infiorescenza a uso estrattivo« ) parmi les plantes médicinales. Quelles conséquences pour le marché italien du chanvre ? Selon Giacomo Bulleri, avocat au conseil d’administration de l’association italienne de chanvre Federcanapa, les conséquences pour le secteur chanvrier italien sont importantes. D’une part, l’inclusion de la fleur de chanvre sur la liste des plantes médicinales suggère que la plante est sur le point d’être reconnue comme un produit agricole. D’autre [...]

Do medical cannabis growers attempt to produce cannabis with different cannabinoid concentrations than recreational growers?, Sharon R. Sznitman et al., 2019,

Do medical cannabis growers attempt to produce cannabis with different cannabinoid concentrations than recreational growers? Sharon R. Sznitman, Monica J. Barratt, Tom Decorte, Pekka Hakkarainen, Simon Lenton, Gary Potter, Bernd Werse and Chris Wilkins Drugs and Alcohol Today, 2019, 19, (4), 251-256, Doi : 10.1108/DAT-06-2019-0021   Abstract Purpose – It is conceivable that cannabis cultivators who grow for medical purposes aim to improve the therapeutic index of their cannabis by attempting to produce particular concentrations of CBD and/or THC. The purpose of this paper is to examine whether small-scalemedical cannabis growers differ fromthose growing for recreational reasons in terms of self-assessed concentrations of THC and CBD [...]

Comment les terpènes affectent les effets d’une variété de cannabis ?, Aurélien Bernard, Newsweed.fr, 12 mai 2010

Comment les terpènes affectent les effets d’une variété de cannabis ? Publié le 12 mai 2020 NEWSWEED.fr , Par Aurélien BERNARD https://www.newsweed.fr/comment-terpenes-affectent-effets-variete-cannabis/     Lorsqu’on entend le mot terpène, la première idée qui vient à l’esprit est l’odeur d’une plante. La recherche scientifique a pourtant montré que les terpènes remplissent plus qu’une unique fonction sensorielle. Les terpènes produisent ainsi des effets spécifiques sur le corps, qu’ils soient anti-inflammatoires, antibactériens, relaxants ou anxiolytiques. C’est d’ailleurs aussi pour cette raison que certaines variétés procurent un sentiment de calme et de bien-être, alors que d’autres favorisent l’énergie. Les terpènes s’insèrent ainsi complètement dans l’effet d’entourage, qui suppose que les composants [...]

Developing Robust Standardised Analytical Procedures for Cannabinoid Quantification : Laying the Foundations for an Emerging Cannabis-Based Pharmaceutical Industry, Matthew T. Welling et al., 2019

Developing Robust Standardised Analytical Procedures for Cannabinoid Quantification : Laying the Foundations for an Emerging Cannabis-Based Pharmaceutical Industry Matthew T. Welling, Lei Liu, Arno Hazekamp, Ashley Dowell, Graham J. King Medical Cannabis & Cannabinoids, 2019, 2, 1–13 Doi : 10.1159/000496868   Abstract The plant genus Cannabis is a prolific producer of unique pharmaceutically relevant metabolites, commonly referred to as cannabinoids. Robust and standardised methods for the quantification of cannabinoids within botanical and drug forms is a critical step forward for an emerging Cannabis- based pharmaceutical industry, which is poised for rapid expansion. Despite a growing body of analytical methods for the quantification of cannabinoids, few have [...]
