Cannabis and cannabinoid drug development: evaluating botanical versus single molecule approaches, Marcel O. Bonn-Miller et al., 2018

Cannabis and cannabinoid drug development: evaluating botanical versus single molecule approaches Marcel O. Bonn-Miller, Mahmoud A. ElSohly, Mallory J. E. Loflin, Suman Chandra and Ryan Vandrey International Review of Psychiatry, 2018, VOL. 30, NO. 3, 277–284 Doi : 10.1080/09540261.2018.1474730   ABSTRACT Accumulating evidence suggests that the endocannabinoid system is a promising target for the treatment of a variety of health conditions. Two paths of cannabinoid drug development have emerged. One approach is focused on developing medications that are directly derived from the cannabis plant. The other utilizes a single molecule approach whereby individual phytocannabinoids or novel cannabinoids with therapeutic potential are identified and synthesized for pharmaceutical [...]

Cannabis species and cannabinoid concentration preference among sleep-disturbed medicinal cannabis users, Katherine A. Belendiuk et al., 2015

Cannabis species and cannabinoid concentration preference among sleep-disturbed medicinal cannabis users Katherine A. Belendiuk, Kimberly A. Babson, Ryan Vandrey, Marcel O. Bonn-Miller Addictive Behaviors, 2015, 50, 178–181 doi : 10.1016/j.addbeh.2015.06.032   a b s t r a c t Introduction : Individuals report using cannabis for the promotion of sleep, and the effects of cannabis on sleep may vary by cannabis species. Little research has documented preferences for particular cannabis types or cannabinoid concentrations as a function of use for sleep disturbances. Methods : 163 adults purchasing medical cannabis for a physical or mental health condition at a cannabis dispensary were recruited. They provided self-report of (a)whether [...]

Therapeutic Satisfaction and Subjective Effects of Different Strains of Pharmaceutical-Grade Cannabis, Tibor M. Brunt et al., 2014

Therapeutic Satisfaction and Subjective Effects of Different Strains of Pharmaceutical-Grade Cannabis Tibor M. Brunt, Marianne van Genugten, Kathrin Honer-Snoeken, Marco J. van de Velde, and Raymond J.M. Niesink Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacoly, 2014, 34, 344Y349 Doi : 10.1097/JCP.0000000000000129   Abstract : In The Netherlands, pharmaceutical-grade cultivated cannabis is distributed for medicinal purposes as commissioned by the Ministry of Health. Few studies have thus far described its therapeutic efficacy or subjective (adverse) effects in patients. The aims of this study are to assess the therapeutic satisfaction within a group of patients using prescribed pharmaceutical-grade cannabis and to compare the subjective effects among the available strains with special [...]

Comprehensive classification of USA cannabis samples based on chemical profiles of major cannabinoids and terpenoids, Ramia Z. Al Bakain et al., 2019

Comprehensive classification of USA cannabis samples based on chemical profiles of major cannabinoids and terpenoids Ramia Z. Al Bakain, Yahya S. Al-Degs, James V. Cizdziel and Mahmoud A. Elsohly Journal of Liquid Chromatography & Related Technologies, 2019 Doi : 10.1080/10826076.2019.1701015   ABSTRACT Different USA-origin cannabis samples were analyzed by GC-FID to quantify all possible cannabinoids and terpenoids prior to their clustering. Chromatographic analysis confirmed the presence of seven cannabinoids and sixteen terpenoids with variable levels. Among tested cannabinoids, D9-Tetrahydro-cannabinol D9-THC and cannabinol CBN were available in excess amounts (1.2–8.0 wt%) and (0.22–1.1 wt%), respectively. Fenchol was the most abundant terpenoid with a range of (0.03–1.0 wt%). [...]

Cannabinoids in Pain Management and Palliative Medicine, Winfried Häuser et al., 2017

Cannabinoids in Pain Management and Palliative Medicine An Overview of Systematic Reviews and Prospective Observational Studies Winfried Häuser, Mary-Ann Fitzcharles, Lukas Radbruch, Frank Petzke The Deutsches Ärzteblatt International,  2017, 114, 627–634. Doi : 10.3238/arztebl.2017.0627   SUMMARY Background : There are conflicting interpretations of the evidence regarding the efficacy, tolerability, and safety of cannabinoids in pain management and palliative medicine. Methods : We conducted a systematic review (SR) of systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials (RCT) and prospective long-term observational studies of the use of cannabinoids in pain management and palliative medicine. Pertinent publications from January 2009 to January 2017 were retrieved by a selective search in the Cochrane [...]

A novel phytocannabinoid isolated from Cannabis sativa L. with an in vivo cannabimimetic activity higher than Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol : Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabiphorol, Cinzia Citti et al., 2019

A novel phytocannabinoid isolated from Cannabis sativa L. with an in vivo cannabimimetic activity higher than Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol : Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabiphorol Cinzia Citti, Pasquale Linciano, Fabiana Russo, Livio Luongo, Monica Iannotta, Sabatino Maione, Aldo Laganà, Anna Laura Capriotti, Flavio Forni, Maria Angela Vandelli, Giuseppe Gigli & Giuseppe Cannazza Scientific Reports | (2019) 9:20335 | www.nature.com/scientificreports Doi : 10.1038/s41598-019-56785-1   (-)-Trans-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) is the main compound responsible for the intoxicant activity of Cannabis sativa L. The length of the side alkyl chain influences the biological activity of this cannabinoid. In particular, synthetic analogues of Δ9-THC with a longer side chain have shown cannabimimetic properties far higher than Δ9-THC [...]

Le THCP : un nouveau cannabinoïde 33 fois plus fort que le THC, Blog-Cannabis.fr, 2019

Le THCP : un nouveau cannabinoïde 33 fois plus fort que le THC Blog-cannabis.fr, 31 décembre 2019 https://www.blog-cannabis.fr/2019/12/31/thcp-nouveau-cannabinoide/ Un nouveau phytocannabinoïde isolé du Cannabis sativa L avec une activité cannabimimétique 30 fois supérieure au THC a été détecté dans le cannabis Le cannabinoïde végétal Tetrahydrocannabiphorol ( THCP ) le plus puissant au monde a récemment été découvert dans une étude en Italie. Il est presque identique dans sa structure au THC mais est 33 fois plus fort que lui, ainsi que du CBDP, le dérivé correspondant du CBD. La recherche pourrait permettre de développer de futures souches de THCP beaucoup plus puissantes. Jusqu’à présent, près de 150 [...]

THCp – Newly discovered and highly potent phytocannabinoid, cannabislifenetwork.com, 2020

THCp – Newly discovered and highly potent phytocannabinoid Source : cannabislifenetwork.com Publié le 1 Fév 2020 We have discovered so much about cannabis over the years, but it’s vast, intricate, pharmacological map is missing many major regions. CBD dominant varieties have exploded in demand, yet the cannabinoid is still only partially understood, and there is still CBG and CBN just around the market’s corner. Now, brand new forms of THC and CBD, THCp and CBDp, respectively, have been discovered; evidence that the map’s expanse is still beyond our grasp. Phytocannabinoids over synthetics Lately, stories of newly discovered cannabinoids are strewn with the accomplishments of a biochemist [...]
