On the Preparations of the Indian Hemp

William Brooke O'Shaughnessy (1809 - 1889)

The author investigated the uses of cannabis resin as an anticonvulsant and relaxant in cases of tetanus, cholera, and infantile convulsions. He and others also carried out animal studies on its use, and noted its low toxicity. He recommended that British doctors assessed the drug's use in such cases. (Summary by Peter Yearsley)
