As CBD Oil Flirts with Mainstream, Questions Mount, Kathleen Doheny, Medscape, 2018

As CBD Oil Flirts with Mainstream, Questions Mount Kathleen Doheny Medscape, June 11, 2018 Anxiety is a given for Jessica Singer, 25, who juggles her job at a marijuana dispensary with her night-time gigs as a stand-up comedian in Los Angeles. So when it’s time for bed, "I can't turn off my brain,'' she says. Now she does, with the help of a new bedtime ritual -- a ''snack" of two gummy bears containing CBD. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a substance from marijuana that lacks the ''high'' of the THC (tetrahydro-cannabinol) also found in marijuana. The remedy is affordable for her -- about $35 [...]

Bibliographie CANNABINOÏDES et Traitement des Nausées et Vomissements   Docteur Christian SUEUR, GRECC, 2e édition, janvier 2020.   Le Cannabis comme anti-émétique :   Les prescriptions médicales, chez les adultes (THC naturel ou synthétique - Nabilone) comme chez les enfants (delta 8-THC, Abrahamov et al, 1995), ont débutées dès 1975. L’efficacité a été prouvée dans de nombreux essais cliniques, et de nombreuses méta-analyses (8/9 pour le cannabis et 3/3 pour le Nabilone, Penta et al, 1981). Par contre les effets psychotropiques peuvent être mal supportés par de nombreux patients, et justifie l’arrêt, ou la diminution des doses.

Regulation of nausea and vomiting by cannabinoids, Linda A Parker et al., 2011

Regulation of nausea and vomiting by cannabinoids Linda A Parker, Erin M Rock and Cheryl L Limebeer British Journal of Pharmacology, 2011, 163, 1411-1422. Doi : 10.1111/j.1476-5381.2010.01176.x   Abstract Considerable evidence demonstrates that manipulation of the endocannabinoid system regulates nausea and vomiting in humans and other animals. The anti-emetic effect of cannabinoids has been shown across a wide variety of animals that are capable of vomiting in response to a toxic challenge. CB1 agonism suppresses vomiting, which is reversed by CB1 antagonism, and CB1 inverse agonism promotes vomiting. Recently, evidence from animal experiments suggests that cannabinoids may be especially useful in treating the more difficult to control [...]
