Le Cannabis sativa : une plante psychotrope ayant des intérêts thérapeutiques

Abstract : Cannabis is the most consumed drug in the world, and teenagers are the principal users. The toxicity of cannabis depends on the quantity, frequency and duration of its consumption. It depends on the dose of the active substance which is absorbed by the body. The psychotropic effect is mainly driven by the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which binds to the CB1 receptor in the brain. But THC and the other cannabinoids also possess therapeutic properties in many pathologies such as pain, epilepsy, nausea,... Other cannabinoids are thus studied for medical research such as the cannabidiol, or the selective agonists of the CB2 receptors, which are deprived of the psychotropic activity. Promising cancer research has shown an interest for their anti-tumoral effects for the treatment of glioma and hormone-sensitive breast cancers by acting with selectivity and limiting damage to the healthy cells.
