Healing with Cannabis: The Evolution of the Endocannabinoid System and How Cannabinoids Help Relieve PTSD, Pain, MS, Anxiety, and More

Availability: Ready to download

An informative read for an audience interested in why and how medical cannabis helps treat a range of illnesses—maybe all of them. With cannabis approved in 14 states (including the District and 2 US territories), medical cannabis approved in at least 35 states, and hemp (very-low-THC cannabis) off the controlled substances list, millions now treat their ills with medical c An informative read for an audience interested in why and how medical cannabis helps treat a range of illnesses—maybe all of them. With cannabis approved in 14 states (including the District and 2 US territories), medical cannabis approved in at least 35 states, and hemp (very-low-THC cannabis) off the controlled substances list, millions now treat their ills with medical cannabis or non-intoxicating cannabinoids like CBD. But lots of them don’t know why or how cannabis works in the body. Healing with Cannabis has two parts. First is a scientific but not too technical story of the endocannabinoid system, a billion-year-old system in vertebrates that allows cannabis to work in the body and brain. But its main role in the body is homeostasis—a state of balance—so it's an essential regulatory mechanism in the basic machinery of everyday life, not just about cannabis. In part 2, about medical cannabis, interviews with some of the best international cannabinoid researchers tell why and how cannabis helps treat PTSD, pain, MS, anxiety, some elements of cancer, and many others. The book also describes clinical trials and has a resources section. It's available for classroom use and to every interested citizen.

    I won a copy of this book This book is fantastic for anyone interested in cannabis. If you're on the fence about trying CBD or THC, I think this book will help you make an informed decision. Pellerin gives a great introduction to everything cannabis. The first section of the book is full of scientific stuff, which will really interest doctors who are on the fence about giving a recommendations to their patients. It gets pretty technical at some points, but I found most of it interesting. Our feder I won a copy of this book This book is fantastic for anyone interested in cannabis.

The first section of the book is full of scientific stuff, which will really interest doctors who are on the fence about giving a recommendations to their patients. It gets pretty technical at some points, but I found most of it interesting. Our federal laws need to catch up to our state laws (although, I think that may be changing soon). The second half of the book is using cannabis for medicine. There's just a really nice in-depth look at all the different ways one can use cannabis. This is where Pellerin really gets into the endocannabinoid system and how it can be used to help everything from inflammation to cancer to mental instability. There are resources in the back of the book for organizations and websites. This book is just a really good resource for all things cannabis. My main take away is there needs to be more research done; There is a usefulness to this plant and we shouldn't discount it any longer.

    Every vertebrate on the planet has an endocannabinoid system and that is why cannabis works in the body. This book takes a deep dive into not only that system but also a scientific look at how this body system evolved into what we have today. This book reads similar to a textbook with accompanying photographs to match the text. I really appreciate that as a visual can really break up some heady scientific reading. This book is really two different parts. Part 1 teaches the reader about the endoc Every vertebrate on the planet has an endocannabinoid system and that is why cannabis works in the body. This book takes a deep dive into not only that system but also a scientific look at how this body system evolved into what we have today. This book reads similar to a textbook with accompanying photographs to match the text. I really appreciate that as a visual can really break up some heady scientific reading. This book is really two different parts. Part 1 teaches the reader about the endocannabinoid system at length including how it evolved, how it was discovered and how cannabinoid (THC and CBD) work. This is a very abbreviated way of saying what is covered in part one on my behalf but the knowledge base in this section is super in depth and informative. Readers who enjoy learning about body systems, the chemical compositions that make them up and how they were ultimately found via research will really love this part. Part 2 is all about cannabis as a medicine and my personal favorite part of the book. I am one of the lucky people who lives in the United States that has access to both medical and recreational use of cannabis, so knowing that I could go to my local dispensary with the knowledge given in this book with confidence to know about the products I would best benefit from is huge! This isn't about what strain of "weed" you should buy but rather a look at how cannabinoids can work/assist in human conditions ranging from PTSD to IBS. I loved reading about how these different chemicals work with the endocannabinoid system to help alleviate some serious issues like cancers and mental illness. Ultimately this book has further concreted my understanding that cannabis is a plant that needs further research and support to get that research. It could possibly help so many people if it were just able to be removed as a drug "never to be studied on humans" due to the stigma it holds with it. I loved all the little nuggets of history in this book as well. Did you know that some large pharmaceutical companies that are still around today used to sell cannabis products as a cure-all for a multitude of illnesses? I didn't know but thanks to this book I now know so much more about healing with cannabis than I ever thought I would. Highly recommended for anyone who would like to have a in depth look at this amazing plant!

    Let me start off with, I really loved this book. I love the cover, the way it's formatted, and all of the words and images inside. I feel it is really informative in a fun way, the book addresses the information in a way that is easy to understand and keeps you interested. The images included to help explain things are fantastic too. I personally use cannabis medically and while I do know a fair amount, there was some things I did not know and this book helped me broaden my range of information.

I highly recommend giving this book a read, if you have no knowledge on the topic or a decent amount, it's worth your time. I believe cannabis is going to become more prevalent in medicine as time goes on, and this may book help take away some of the bad stigma it still withholds with some. Give this book a read, very educational, and very worth it!

    I really liked this edition. I have always said that you need to explain to people as much as possible about the causes and effects of new drugs, including herbal ones. I am an advocate of herbal treatments, but I understand that pure cannabis is not always medically convenient. I myself began to use the best CBD oil as needed. It gives quick relief from pain and relieves anxiety but has no psychoactive side effects. I really liked this edition.
