PASCUAL SIMON, José Ramón  and  FERNANDEZ RODRIGUEZ, Bárbara Leonor. Brief review on the pharmacology of cannabinoids. MEDISAN [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.3, pp.334-345. ISSN 1029-3019.

The controversy among those that promote the use of cannabinoids with therapeutic aims is intense and who consider that it is still early for their introduction in the clinic, due to their lethal effects for the human health in the different stages and conditionals of the biological development. In parallel it is debated, among the authorities in charge of looking after the health of their fellow citizens, the polemic of legalizing or not the consumption of the Cannabis sativa in any of their forms and natural derived. Both polemics have based the study of all the forms of presentation and consumption of this herb, as well as of its synthetic derived due to their effects on the health of sick and healthy people. In this brief review outstanding aspects of their pharmacology are exposed, due to the interest and enormous flow of information generated by a large number of investigators dedicated to the study of this herb and its derived elements
