This has impeded the use of cannabis in clinical research, potentially obscuring physicians and nurses about its safety, efficacy, and dosage for pharmaceutical applications through rigorous double-blinded, placebo-controlled studies. Besides, cannabinoid-containing substances obtained for research purposes are not chemically or physically representative of the legal cannabis market.
