Prescription Cannabinoids

The term “prescription cannabinoid” refers to products containing one or more marijuana plant-derived or synthetically manufactured cannabinoids that are available by prescription only. Currently, in the U.S. only three prescription cannabinoids are FDA-approved and legal to be prescribed in all states. These include:

  1. Cesamet (nabilone, a synthetic cannabinoid similar to THC) – Available in the U.S.
  2. Epidiolex (a plant-derived CBD) – Available in the U.S.
  3. Marinol (dronabinol, a synthetic THC) – Available in the U.S.
  4. Sativex (a combination of THC and CBD in a 1:1 ratio) is a prescription cannabinoid available in Canada and Europe but not yet FDA-approved or available in the U.S.  Some of the most informative research into medical uses of marijuana has come from studies evaluating Sativex because it is plant-based and contains both THC and CBD as well as other pharmacologically significant cannabis plant constituents including some terpenes.
