The development of potential therapeutic products such as cannabinoids is a complex process that requires the integration of various types of data to understand the potential therapeutic and toxic effects of products in humans. This symposium will review the regulatory expectations of the FDA for the quality of cannabinoid-containing products that are either botanicals or highly purified drug products; discuss the antinociceptive and adverse effects of cannabinoids in animals and leverage these results to inform the design of clinical protocols; as well as review the analgesic and adverse effects of cannabinoids in humans.
