Review: This website provides a discussion blog and access to abstracts of journal articles addreassing the efficacy of medical cannabis for a range conditions and symptoms. These include: treatment of nausea; to  increase appetite and counter-balance the effects of chemotherapy drugs or wasting diseases such as HIV;  and the reduction of side-effects of epilepsy or other brain-related conditions. The public discussions generated from this resource adds to the debate about the relative costs and efficiencies of using medical cannabis compared to other drugs (such as AZT for the treatment of HIV). This site is relatively academic.
