Abstract

This introductory review discusses the history, chemistry, and metabolism of Cannabis sativa, commonly referred to as marijuana. Whether the science is there for its use in foods and dietary supplements depends on evidence that the required production and safety standards have been met and clinical evidence of benefit of food applications for cannabis-related or derived products.
