Question - What medical problems in children and adolescents may be most amenable to the use of cannabinoids as a medical therapy?
Answer - According to a recent systematic review, “Evidence for benefit was strongest for chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting with increasing evidence for benefit for epilepsy. At this time there is insufficient evidence to support use for spasticity, neuropathic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder and Tourette syndrome.” (Wong SS and Wilens TE. Medical cannabinoids in children and adolescents: A systematic review. 2017 Pediatrics 140(5):1-16)
