Oncology, Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research

Dear Colleagues:

I would like to invite you to submit your next research article to Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research.

Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research is seeking high quality translational and basic research studies on the impact of cannabis and its chemical constituents on cancer cells. Studies investigating components of the endocannabinoid system are also welcome. Recently there has been a strong increase in popular interest on the effects of cannabis in human cancers, but basic and clinical research is still lagging behind. The deadline for submission is June 1, 2018. Accepted papers will be included in a special article collection which will provide a broad overview of the current state of research on cannabis and cancer. The Journal will consider original research, reviews, technical reports, or rapid communication articles.

Potential topics include:

  • Antitumorigenic mechanism of cannabinoids
  • Adjuvant use of cannabis with chemotherapy
  • Anti-inflammatory activity of cannabinoids
  • Effects of THC and CBD on:
    • Solid tumor recurrence
    • Anxiety and mood in cancer patients
    • Cancer pain
