The cannabis plant contains hundreds of substances (cannabinoids and terpenes), and each one—or each combination of them—can have different medical effects. One of the challenges in transforming cannabis into a pharmaceutical drug is the natural variation in its cultivation. This means the flowers have varying compositions, unlike the uniform well defined and robust products of the pharmaceutical industry. Cannabis reform will result in that the products being sold in pharmacies having accurate and precise doses of the active ingredients as required for typical drug.
