Cannabinoids In The Treatment Of Chemotherapy-induced Nausea And Vomiting

Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea and Vomiting

Key Findings

In 1985, the FDA approved 2 cannabinoid derivatives, dronabinol and nabilone, for the treatment of CINV not effectively treated by other agents. Although patients may like to pursue this treatment option in states that have approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes, its use remains legally and therapeutically controversial.
