Abstract

Until recently, consumer perception of cannabis was largely framed by its stigma surrounding drug use. Today, in an era of medical and recreational cannabis legalization, an increasing commercialization of cannabis-based products are being purported as functional foods. It is important for a wider audience of researchers, health care professionals, regulators and industry stakeholders to enhance their awareness of the human endocannabinoid system as a physiological regulator, the safety issues of product and process methods and adherence to qualitycontrolled training programs for assuring the public of safe practices.
