norml scholarships drug policy reform conferenceBy Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director

NORML is pleased to present the latest expanded/updated edition of the publication Emerging Clinical Applications for Cannabis & Cannabinoids — a comprehensive review of the latest peer-reviewed science specific to the safety and therapeutic efficacy of whole-plant cannabis and/or its components.

The 2015 updated edition includes two additional disease profiles (Parkinson’s disease and PTS) and includes summaries of an additional 50+ relevant clinical and/or preclinical trials specific to cannabinoids’ therapeutic utility. Several existing sections, such as Chronic Pain, Diabetes, and Epilepsy, have been significantly expanded since the last edition (January 2013). Also updated is the Introduction to the Endocannabinoid System (authored by Dustin Sulak, DO) and Why I Recommend Medical Cannabis (authored by Estelle Goldstein, MD).

With summaries and citations of well over 250 recent peer-reviewed studies, this updated publication is one of the most thorough and up-to-date source-books available specific to documenting the established therapeutic qualities of cannabis. The updated publication is available online here.

  2. We need NORML’s help in getting Marijuana taken off of Schedule 1 immediately. We’re trying to get as many people as possible to call the White House comment line every day until the President takes personal action on this issue, either by executive order to remove Marijuana from Schedule 1 or by directing Attorney General Lynch to do it.
    Can NORML help in this effort?

  3. Kudos to NORML. Marijuana isn’t just a “Wonder Drug” its “a rain forest in a single plant”
    We need the President to take Marijuana off of Schedule 1 before foreign drug companies patent every biochemical in it.
