Research Renaissance
CLINICAL STUDIES
Universities and research institutes evaluate effectiveness of CBD
and THC against various ailments
T
he following tables contain
observational and interventional
clinical studies* involving
marijuana-derived CBD and THC.
These are but a thimbleful of the
cannabis studies undertaken in
recent decades.
Federally funded research into
cannabis has had an overwhelmingly
negative bias, focusing on issues such
as addiction, how the plant affects the
teenage brain and how to measure
and detect impairment. Such anticannabis
research continues today,
only moderately tempered.
What has changed is that there
are significantly more therapeutic
studies, such as those exploring
whether cannabis relieves pain, helps
Alzheimer's patients with cognition or
reduces tremors related to Parkinson's
disease.
While most of these studies involve
CBD, a significant number involve THC.
What follows is only a sampling and is
not meant to present the full range of
cannabis research taking place.
* In an observational cannabis study, participants consume an " intervention " -say, cannabis flower or edibles-and are assessed for
biomedical or health outcomes. These studies do not lead to new drug approvals. In interventional studies, researchers assign interventions
such as drugs or behavioral counseling to participants and evaluate the health outcomes and/or their efficacy in combatting symptoms or
illness compared to existing treatments and placebos. These studies might lead to new drug approvals.
