Cannabidiol (CBD) le point sur la législation, MILDECA, 11/06/2018

Cannabidiol (CBD) le point sur la législation Publié le 11/06/2018 De nombreux produits présentés comme contenant du CBD sont récemment apparus sur le marché français. La MILDECA a piloté un groupe de travail interministériel afin de rendre publiques des informations juridiques et techniques validées par toutes les autorités concernées. Le cannabidiol (CBD) fait partie des composés actifs majeurs du cannabis, autrement appelé chanvre, au même titre que le delta-9-tétrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Le cannabidiol (épisode 1), CENTRE D’ADDICTOVIGILANCE DE PARIS (CEIP-A), 09/11/2018

Le cannabidiol (épisode 1) http://addictovigilance.aphp.fr/2018/11/09/le-cannabidiol-episode-1/ 09/11/2018 Depuis plusieurs mois, de nombreux « coffee-shops » ont ouvert un peu partout en France : 120 selon les estimations de l’association Norml. Ce sont des boutiques où il est possible d’acheter et consommer du cannabis. En France, étant donné que le cannabis est illégal, les coffee-shops proposent des produits à base de cannabidiol, substance présente dans le cannabis, mais non nommément désignée dans la liste des stupéfiants en France.  L’ouverture de ces coffee-shops  suscite le débat et face à l’ampleur du phénomène, les autorités sanitaires (MILDECA, ANSM, etc…) ont apporté une clarification sur la règlementation  de ces produits [1].

The Endocannabinoid System and Cannabidiol’s Promise for the Treatment of Substance Use Disorder, Yann Chye et al., 2019

The Endocannabinoid System and Cannabidiol’s Promise for the Treatment of Substance Use Disorder Yann Chye, Erynn Christensen, Nadia Solowij, and Murat Yücel Frontiers in Psychiatry, 19 February 2019, doi: 10.3389/fpsyt.2019.00063   Substance use disorder is characterized by repeated use of a substance, leading to clinically significant distress, making it a serious public health concern. The endocannabinoid system plays an important role in common neurobiological processes underlying substance use disorder, in particular by mediating the rewarding and motivational effects of substances and substance-related cues. In turn, a number of cannabinoid drugs (e.g., rimonabant, nabiximols) have been suggested for potential pharmacological treatment for substance dependence. Recently, cannabidiol [...]

Cannabidiol as a suggested candidate for treatment of autism spectrum disorder. POLEG S., GOLUBCHIK P., OFFEN D., WEIZMAN A. Progress in Neuro-Psychopharmacology and Biological Psychiatry, 2019, 8, 89, 90-96. doi: 10.1016/j.pnpbp.2018.08.030 Abstract Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is characterized by persistent deficits in social communication, restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities and often intellectual disabilities.
