Summary

As more states are legalizing medical cannabis, prescribers need a reliable source which provides clinical information in a succinct format. This book focuses on the science of cannabis as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory supplement. It discusses cannabis uses in the human body for bone health/osteoporosis; brain injury and trauma; cancer; cardiovascular diseases; diabetes; gastrointestinal conditions; gynecological issues; mental health disorders; insomnia; neurological conditions; eye disorders; and inflammation. There is emphasis on using the whole plant- from root to raw leaves and flowers discussing strains, extraction and analysis, and use of cannabis-infused edibles.
