Cannabis has been cultivated for its medicinal properties for over 12,000 years, with key effects on immune support, inflammation and cancer. As it gains greater acceptance in America alongside established regulatory guidelines for medical marijuana, it is important that healthcare professionals are informed about the areas where cannabis can be of benefit. This book provides a science-based overview to enable clinicians to make recommendations and provide dosing indications when appropriate. It guides readers through the endocannabinoid system's role in homeostasis, pain control and overall health management; providing advice on using cannabis therapeutically in patients dealing with conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular health issues and liver function problems.
