This practical, accessible guide to using CBD-dominant cannabis contains a wealth of information for both first-time explorers and experienced patients who want to know more about safely treating a number of health conditions with remarkable results and low to no psychoactivity or negative side effects.

  • CBD (cannabidiol) is a component of cannabis that can provide relief for conditions such as seizures, pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, arthritis, and a number of other issues.
  • The information is organized by health condition and also by recommended CBD-rich strains, which do not produce the “highs” associated with THC.
  • Research has led to the discovery of a whole new system in the body, the endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in mediating functions such as appetite, immunity, mood, pain response, and memory.
  • The authors present case studies, interviews with doctors who prescribe cannabidiol products, and the latest research regarding other active phytocannabinoids and terpenoids present in cannabis that are being studied for medical use.

This is an essential guide for both doctors and patients looking for a nontoxic alternative to opiate-based pain medications and other pharmaceuticals.

    In my practice of pain medicine, I have witnessed the positive impact that cannabis can have on chronic pain.  It is increasingly evident that it provides a safer alternative to opioids.  The breadth and scope of this book is impressive.  The historical perspective is most interesting and the technical information deeply informative.
