This book highlights current Cannabis research: its botany, authentication, biotechnology, in vitro propagation, chemistry, cannabinoids biosynthesis, metabolomics, genomics, biomass production, quality control, and pharmacology. Cannabis sativa L. (Family: Cannabaceae) is one of the oldest sources of fiber, food and medicine. This plant has been of interest to researchers, general public and media not only due to its medicinal properties but also the controversy surrounding its illicit use. Cannabis has a long history of medicinal use in the Middle East and Asia, being first introduced as a medicine in Western Europe in the early 19 th century. Due to its numerous natural constituents, Cannabis is considered a chemically complex species. It contains a unique class of terpeno-phenolic compounds (cannabinoids or phytocannabinoids), which have been extensively studied since the discovery of the chemical structure of tetrah ydrocannabinol (? 9 -THC), commonly known as THC, the main constituent responsible for the plants psychoactive effects. An additionally important cannabinoid of current interest is Cannabidiol (CBD). There has been a significant interest in CBD and CBD oil (extract of CBD rich Cannabis) over the last few years because of its reported activity as an antiepileptic agent, particularly its potential use in the treatment of intractable epilepsy in children.

The Complex Connections between Cannabis and Schizophrenia provides an in-depth overview of the current state of research into the role that cannabis plays in schizophrenia, covering both the pathophysiological and the pharmacological implications. It addresses the epidemiology of cannabis use and the risks associated with its use, the biological aspects of the drug, its effects on the brain and the pharmacological possibilities of using cannabidiol to treat schizophrenia. It is the only book on the market devoted exclusively to examining the links between this very commonly used (and misused) drug and a specific set of devastating psychiatric illnesses, providing a comprehensive guide to our current understandings of this relationship. Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug globally, and is becoming increasingly decriminalized and even legalized worldwide. Among the numerous mental-health concerns related to the drug, there is mounting evidence of an intricate link between cannabis use and schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders. At the same time, there is promising evidence to suggest that cannabidiol, one of the many compounds found in cannabis that activates the brains cannabinoid receptors, could prove to be an effective antipsychotic to treat schizophrenia. Synthesizes existing knowledge about the confusing, but crucial, relationship between cannabis use and schizophrenia symptoms Provides a comprehensive overview of the neurobiological mechanisms of cannabis use and its effects on the brain, including an exploration of the endocannabinoid system Examines the promising evidence suggesting cannabidiol as an effective antipsychotic treatment for schizophrenia Aids readers studying the neurobiological underpinning of cannabis addiction and psychosis in determining directions for their own future research
The world we live in today is far different than it was 100 years ago. In fact, it is vastly different from the world of even 10 years ago. The advances in the medical science field deserve the most praise. These advances have improved and enhanced treatment methods for the diseases and ailments that are ever more present in society. Out of these advances, cannabis oil has been one of the most effective and widely adopted medical treatment methods of the last century. Cannabis oil, also referred to as hemp oil, is greatly different from marijuana that individuals use to get ´´high´´ and even different from medical marijuana administered by medical professionals. The main component, the active ingredient in cannabis oil, is a cannabinoid by the name of Cannabidiol (CBD). The absorption of CBD by the body does not result in any psychoactive effects, such as a feeling of being ´´high´´ or ´´stoned.´´ Rather, their effects on the body can be described as calming and soothing, both on a physical level which an individual can recognize as well as on a level beneath the skin. The active ingredient in Marijuana that is used for recreational or medicinal purposes, on the other hand, is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the cannabinoid that induces the feeling of being ´´high´´ that is most often associated with all forms of cannabis. The reported benefits of cannabis oil vary greatly and span medical conditions such as cancer, epilepsy, insomnia, and high blood pressure. Cannabis oil has been touted by some as a ´´miracle treatment´´ for many conditions that simply did not have an effective treatment with minimal side effects available to consumers.
