The WHO has published “an overview of diseases for which CBD may have therapeutic benefits”. This is based on the studies of Pisanti et al. (2017) in the journal Pharmacology & Therapeutics. The list of diseases includes:
- Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, Huntington's disease
- Ischemic-hypoxic injuries, pain, psychosis, anxiety, depression, cancer, nausea, inflammatory diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, infections, inflammatory bowel disease and Crohn's disease, cardiovascular disease and diabetic complications.
"But there are still a lot of misunderstandings, and we're trying to learn from doctors who are truly innovative about cannabis, as well as families and patients. We learn from what we discover for ourselves and share information about what CBD is really therapeutic for."
