cannabis,Dronabinol gastroparesis via survey (n=197) Cannabinoid Use in Patients With Gastroparesis and Related Disorders Mar 2019
A third of patients with Gp symptoms actively use cannabinoids for their chronic symptoms. Most of these patients perceive improvement in their symptoms with cannabinoids.
Nabilone,Dronabinol cud in humans via placebo trial (n=14) Subjective, cognitive, and cardiovascular dose-effect profile of nabilone and dronabinol in marijuana smokers Jan 2012
Ingestion Method: nabilone (2, 4, 6, 8 mg), dronabinol (10, 20 mg)
Nabilone (4, 6, 8 mg) and dronabinol (10, 20 mg) increased ratings of feeling a good effect, a strong effect, and/or `high' relative to placebo; nabilone had a slower onset of peak subjective effects than dronabinol. Nabilone (6, 8 mg) modestly lowered psychomotor speed relative to placebo and dronabinol.
Dronabinol appetite boost,sleep,cancer in humans via placebo trial (n=47/65) Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol may palliate altered chemosensory perception in cancer patients: results of a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot trial. Sep 2011
Positive  THC-treated patients reported improved (P = 0.026) and enhanced (P < 0.001) chemosensory perception and food 'tasted better' (P = 0.04). Premeal appetite (P = 0.05) and proportion of calories consumed as protein increased compared with placebo (P = 0.008). THC-treated patients reported increased quality of sleep (P = 0.025) and relaxation (P = 0.045).
Dronabinol appetite boost,hiv in humans via trial (n=139) Dronabinol as a treatment for anorexia associated with weight loss in patients with AIDS. Feb 1995
Positive  Dronabinol was found to be safe and effective for anorexia associated with weight loss in patients with AIDS.
cannabis,Dronabinol tourettes in humans via case study (n=2) Speechlessness in Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome: Cannabis-Based Medicines Improve Severe Vocal Blocking Tics in Two Patients. Aug 2017
We report the cases of two young German male patients with treatment-resistant Tourette syndrome (TS), who suffer from incapacitating stuttering-like speech disfluencies caused by vocal blocking tics and palilalia. Case 1: a 19-year old patient received medical cannabis at a dose of 1 x 0.1 g cannabis daily. Case 2: a 16-year old patient initially received dronabinol at a maximum dose of 22.4-33.6 mg daily. Both treatments provided significant symptom improvement of vocal blocking tics as well as of comorbid conditions and were well tolerated. Thus, cannabis-based medicine appears to be effective in treatment-resistant TS patients with vocal blocking tics.
