Better pain management is therefore of urgent need. Methods : Among the various candidates, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) has recently emerged as a relevant pharmacological target for themanagement of endometriosis-related pain. [...]

UTILISATION DU DRONABINOL (MARINOL ®) EN FRANCE Dr Sarah Lejczak AH, CETD, CHU Nantes sarah.lejczak@chu-nantes.fr 20.06.2019     Utilisation du Marinol en France : enquête auprès des prescripteurs Sarah Lejczak CHU de Nantes Sarah Lejczak, médecin algologue, rappelle qu’il est possible de prescrire du Marinol depuis 2006. Le premier essai clinique sur le cannabis thérapeutique a été réalisé au XIXe siècle, avec des patients atteints de choléra et de tétanos. Ces essais ont été suivis de dérives et de périodes de prohibition. Fort heureusement, des équipes de chercheurs se sont de nouveau emparées de ce sujet à partir des années 1970. Aux États-Unis, l’approche de ce sujet diverge selon les États. [...]

Phillips Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, 2018, 3, 1, 152-161. https://doi.org/10.1089/can.2018.0006   Abstract Introduction: Preclinical and clinical studies suggest that cannabidiol (CBD) found in Cannabis spp. has broad therapeutic value.

Cannabinoids and Neuropathic Pain, P.W. Brownjohn and J.C. Ashton, 2012

Cannabinol and Neuropathic Pain P.W. Brownjohn and J.C. Ashton Neuropathic Pain, 2012, chap. 4, 79-102   1. Introduction Cannabinoids are drugs that are either derived from cannabis or that induce similar behavioural and physiological effects to cannabis. They fall into three classes: those that are produced by plants of the Cannabis genus, termed phytocannabinoids (plant cannabinoids); those that are produced within the body, termed endocannabinoids (endogenous cannabinoids); and those that are produced synthetically to mimic the pharmacology of naturally occurring cannabinoids. Cannabinoids stand in relation to cannabis as opioids such as codeine, pethidine, fentanyl, and methadone stand in relation to opium. While opium and opioids [...]
