Clinical Question:
Besides pain^ are medical cannabinoids effective for other conditions?
Bottom Line:
For most conditions (example anxiety)^ cannabinoid evidence is sparse (at best)^ low quality and non-convincing. Dronabinol/nabilone improve control of nausea/vomiting post- chemotherapy for 1 in 3 users over placebo. Nabiximols likely improve multiple sclerosis spasticity ≥30% for approx. 1 in 10 users over placebo. Patients’ preference for cannabinoids exceeds cannabinoids effectiveness.
