The Chemist and Druggist, October 4, 1890
DR. GERMAN SEE has been employing extract of Indian hemp with very good results in two kinds of dyspepsia, the first comprising alterations in the chemical composition of the gastric juice, attended with heartburn and intolerable acidity. The second group related exclusively to the gastrointestinal neuroses which occurred without any chemical modification of the gastric juice. He found that cannabis acted in such a manner as to mitigate the painful sensations and to re-establish the appetite, whatever might be the condition by which the pain and other phenomena were produced. The dose given was 1/4 grain three times a day. This dose should not be exceeded, as the drug then acts too powerfully as a narcotic.
