“Medical cannabis – compendium of pharmacist’s knowledge” – a practical commentary on compounding medications
Medical cannabis is a new topic for Polish pharmacists. By now, knowledge about their properties, therapeutic effects or the form of drugs prepared from them was not essential in pharmaceutical practice. Knowledge about the properties of hemp in the form of dried herbs as a pharmaceutical raw material is necessary for the proper preparation of a prescribed drug. Publications and guidelines in the field of applied pharmacy, allow to avoid mistakes and to prepare medicines of adequate quality. The aim of this article was to provide comments on previously published manuscript – “Medical cannabis – compendium of pharmacist’s knowledge”. A number of practical guides were proposed that may be useful for pharmacists preparing drugs from medical cannabis or planning to undertake this task.
Keywords: medical cannabis, compounding medication, community pharmacy.
