cannabinoid chemical structure Nabilone
Research presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium in San Antonio on December 15th showed that the synthetic cannabinoid, Naboline, improved pain, nausea, anxiety, appetite and depression in cancer patients.
Between May 2005 and June 2006, 139 patients participated in a palliative medicine program and Nabilone, which is very similar to THC, was prescribed to 82 patients.
Compared with participants, who received no cannabinoid, the Nabilone participants experienced significant reductions in pain, nausea, depression, insomnia, fever/night sweats and overall distress. See the abstract of the study at the following link: Common Sense for Drug Policy.
