Medical Marijuana: A Clinical Handbook
Medical Marijuana – A Clinical Handbook provides an objective view of the pharmacology of cannabis. The authors wrote the book, as they put it themselves, completely free of any bias, politics or preconceived beliefs. The reader will gain insights into the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of cannabinoids THC and CBD, including the molecular action of the cannabis-based drugs dronabinol, nabilone and Epidiolex (cannabidiol). The authors provide extensive data, including dosages, routes of administration and side effects.
Unique are the twelve chapters organised by organ system – from endocrinology to dermatology – which provide an up-to-date overview of the conditions that cannabis can help treat. Note that the clinical handbook was written by American doctors, which gives it an American touch. For example, the chapter on US cannabis regulations may be less interesting to non-US readers.Buy now
