Cannabis for Therapeutic Purposes in Brazil: Recent Developments and Future Perspectives

It is not news that cannabis-based medicines have been used for millennia around the world in the treatment of conditions and diseases such as chronic pain; epilepsy; neuropsychiatric disorders; nausea and vomiting related to chemotherapy; symptoms associated with autistic spectrum disorder; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; rheumatoid arthritis, among others. However, this topic has been the subject of recent discussions due to the progressive dissemination of scientific data proving the efficacy and safety of their uses. New scientific research and clinical studies are expected, not to mention the revision/alteration of legislation in some countries so that the cultivation, production, commercialization and use of cannabis-based medicines becomes more viable and comprehensive.
