Neurological Issues and Cannabis

From Epilepsy to Autism

In the world of endocannabinoid science, there are 3 areas of large response that are getting attention. Those are autoimmune disorders, cancers, and neurological diseases. Preclinical (in vivo or in vitro) research is exploding in these areas, and some cannabinoid based therapies have even passed FDA Approval for Dravet and Lennox-Gateaux Syndrome. Since many areas are relaxing restrictions on therapeutic access to cannabis, patients and their family members have the option of finding cheaper and more comprehensive alternatives to these FDA approved products. Below are some of the studies regarding cannabinoids and individual neurological disorders.
