Abstract: This work analyses the scientific research worldwide on the therapeutic use of cannabinoids in various diseases, as well as the application of nanotechnology to the development of novel delivery systems for these drugs. For this purpose, three databases commonly used in the Health Science field; PubMed, Scopus and Web of Science (WoS), are studied comparatively. Results clearly show a growing interest on these molecules and their numerous therapeutic applications. The output from the three databases on the item cannabinoids is compared as well as its association with the item therapeutic. As it can be seen, Scopus and WoS show similar trends, despite the number of documents indexed in Scopus for the period 2007-2012 being lower than in the case of WoS. Nevertheless, PubMed shows a completely differing trend. Regarding the application of nanotechnology to the development of novel delivery systems for these drugs in the form of nano- and micro- spheres and particles, substantial differences are found. Scopus does not differentiate between the results for the items nanotechnology and microspheres, while Scopus and WoS provide the higher number of results for the association of nanoparticles + cannabinoids, with a total number of 10 research papers, 40% of which are Spanish.

Keywords: cannabinoids; therapeutic interest; nanotechnology; nanoparticles; development.
