STUDIES SPANNING 12 YEARS:
MEDICAL CANNABIS WORKS
State-commissioned clinical trials
involving more than 300 patients have
-been finished; the final data are being
analyzed for medical journals.
After seven completed clinical trials
between 2002 and 2012, with five
studies already published and two
more pending, the scientists say their
research shows marijuana does, in fact,
have therapeutic value.
A historic experiment in medical marijuana
research spanning a dozen years, which
brought new science to the debate on the
place of cannabis in medicine, has found
that the herb offers broad benefits for pain
control from injuries, HIV, strokes and other
The Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research
— established and funded to the tune of $8.7
million by the California Legislature to answer
the question of whether marijuana has any
therapeutic value — has now all but completed
the most comprehensive studies into pot’s
effectiveness ever conducted in the United
States, reported Peter Hecht in 2012 at the
“Every one of the studies showed a
benefit,” said Dr. Igor Grant, a neuropsychiatrist who served as director of
the Center. “The convergence of
evidence makes me convinced there
is a medical benefit here, and there may
be a niche for cannabis.”
According to Grant, the research
suggests that the American government’s treatment of marijuana as having
no medical use “is completely at odds
with the existing science.”
“It is intellectually dishonest to say it
has no value whatsoever, because it’s
just not true,” Grant said.
According to the Bee, “it is unlikely that
medicinal pot research on such a scale
is going to be repeated any time soon.”
The Center is headquartered at the
University of California San Diego, with
research also conducted in Sacramento
County and San Francisco. Its work
challenged medical orthodoxy by, for the
first time in decades, performing clinical
trials examining marijuana as medicine.
Now the Center survives only as an
informational resource and potential
clearinghouse for grant applications for
future cannabis studies.
Despite the findings of potential health
benefits, cannabis seems no closer to
winning federal acceptance as medicine.
