Tammi Sweet combines her expertise in herbal medicine and neurobiology in this in-depth guide to understanding the science behind the effectiveness of cannabis medicine. In addition to exploring the chemistry of the whole cannabis plant, she explains the physiology of the human body’s endocannabinoid system and why and how it is affected by ingesting cannabis. Based on research and her own clinical experience, Sweet provides technique instructions for the best medicinal cannabis preparations and specific dosage recommendations for using these remedies to address a wide range of conditions, including stress, chronic pain, anxiety, PTSD, insomnia, and more. This volume offers a wealth of valuable information to healthcare professionals, practitioners of the healing arts, dispensary workers, and medical cannabis users who want to understand the science of cannabis and its effects on the whole body.
