Papers and literature by Dr. Autry Parker
Presented to the Tennessee Medical Cannabis Commission on February 25, 2022.
Dr. P's presentation begins at time-stamp 1:46:30 and ends at 2:35:10
Please note two corrections:
Epidiolex is a CBD extract and not one-to-one THC/CBD like Sativex, and in the edible comment Dr. P meant to say, "11-hydroxl," not 4-hydroxyl.

Terpenes Determine Quality
Terpenes have a wide variety of medicinal uses and have been utilized for centuries.
Terpenes are the "secret sauce" in cannabis pharmacology. The "Entourage Effect" is due largely to terpenes' contributions. THC and CBD are more effective when combined with terpenes' anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anxiolytic, sedative, stimulatory, and modulatory effects.
Clinicians must understand the importance of specific terpenes and have access to accurate labeling of the product's terpene (and cannabinoid) concentrations when choosing a cannabis cultivar.
Because the discussion of terpenes is a complex topic, I am providing a link to an informative site that can provide references.
