Abstract

The Journal of Cannabis Therapeutics is proud to initiate its fourth year of publication with this issue, but regrets that it will be its last, as explained below.

In this final issue, we are pleased to present additional data on cannabinoid delivery and harm reduction. Dale Gieringer et al. present the first scientific analysis of results obtained with the Volcano®, a cannabis vaporizer device. The success of such technologies may address a key recommendation of the U.S. Institute of Medicine in its emphasis on non-smoked cannabis delivery systems.

Franjo Grotenhermen provides another extensive review article, this time on cannabinoid pharmacodynamics, to complement his previous offerings on cannabinoid pharmacokinetics.

Tod Mikuriya documents his extensive clinical experience in use of cannabis in treating alcoholism, an indication first claimed in the 19th century.

New approaches employing cannabinoid mechanisms may prove fruitful in providing alternatives to current treatment of this disorder
