Handbook of Cannabis

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a pharmacological history of cannabis, primarily in the form of a detailed chronology highlighting key developments from various cultures around the world that employed either cannabidiol-predominant hemp or tetrahydrocannabinol-predominant cannabis chemovars, dating from the third millennium BCE to the twenty-first century CE. Subsequently, select topics are covered in greater depth focusing on problems wherein cannabis was employed therapeutically in the past, but for which more modern study is required, specifically: tinnitus, tetanus, burns, and pediatric indications. An extensive bibliography of primary source references follows. It is hoped that these examples of past documentation may serve as a useful guide to subsequent fruitful clinical research areas.

Keywords:   cannabis, hemp, marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol, cannabidiol, phytotherapy, tinnitus, tetanus, burns, pediatrics
