  1. Great find!

    I haven't read all of the articles at the site, but this one caught my eye right away:

    Taming THC: potential cannabis synergy and phytocannabinoid-terpenoid entourage effects

    THC has already been legalized in the US in the form of Marinol (currently only synthetic THC is used, however the DEA may reschedule organic THC for use in generic versions of Marinol).

    Organic THC and CBD may be next for FDA approval in the form of Sativex.

    We need more studies involving whole plant cannabis, including all potentially therapeutic phytocannabinoids and other terpenoids contained in cannabis. That is how we will get cannabis rescheduled instead of just the "components" of cannabis.

    The popular opinion amongst medical cannabis patients seems to be that the "legal" forms of cannabis medicine (Marinol, Sativex, etc...) are just not as effective as, or have more side effects than whole plant cannabis.
