Anorexia and related eating disorders are easily misunderstood issues. Those who have anorexia are often thought to be overly concerned with appearances or mentally unstable instead of being viewed as having a true disease.

The emergence of cannabis as a possible treatment for anorexia and similar eating disorders gives hope to the millions of people who suffer from these disorders.
