Special Issue "Therapeutic Cannabinoid Formulation Development and Delivery Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 September 2023) | Viewed by 10225
Therapeutic cannabinoids have been exclusively investigated for specific diseases such as chronic pain, cancer, epilepsy, or demystifying novel mechanisms of action related to the human endocannabinoid system. However, strict regulation and biased opinions against cannabis-derived compounds have hampered the research and development of medical cannabis.
Healthcare providers and pharmaceutical scientists are recently beginning to pay great attention to medical cannabis and its potential. The emerging advances in medical cannabis have led to the establishment of a department in the United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA). Highly standardized medical cannabis is managed by addressing issues related to the extraction and formulation development process.
This Special Issue covers advanced cannabinoid delivery systems and the continual process development for the extraction and formulation of cannabinoids. Based on the therapeutic effects of cannabinoids, the future perspectives of medical cannabis could be provided considering the applicability to other indications.
