Cannabis Pharmacy: the practical guide to medical marijuana
Written by Michael Backes, a respected expert in the field, Cannabis Pharmacy is the most comprehensive, easy-to-use book available on understanding and using medical marijuana, with evidence-based information on using cannabis for ailments and conditions, plus a comprehensive guide to the most popular varieties.
Today I interviewed Michael Backes, author of Cannabis Pharmacy: The Practical Guide to Medical Marijuana.
There are currently 4.2 million medical cannabis patients in the United States, and there are 20 states plus the District of Columbia where medical cannabis is legal. As medical cannabis becomes an accepted herbal medicine, there is a demand for clear, easy-to-follow information for the layperson based on the latest sound medical and evidence-based research.
Written by Michael Backes, a respected expert in the field, Cannabis Pharmacy begins with the history of medical marijuana and an explanation of how cannabis works with the body's own endocannabinoid system. Backes goes on to explore in detail 27 of the most popular cannabis varieties, how to identify them, the differences between them, and the medical conditions for which patients have reported effectiveness. Additional chapters describe how to prepare and store cannabis, how best to administer those preparations, and how to modify and control dosage. Also included is a guide to 29 ailments and illnesses for which doctors commonly recommend medical marijuana, including chronic pain, chemotherapy-induced nausea, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, fibromyalgia, and Parkinson's disease.
Meticulously researched and written in an easy and accessible style, Cannabis Pharmacy provides the clearest, most complete, and most practical information available on the use and benefits of medical marijuana.
