Evidence-based information on using cannabis for ailments and conditions, plus a comprehensive guide to the most popular varieties

The most comprehensive, easy-to-use book available on understanding and using 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Why this book may belong in your library and should be read and referenced 16. September 2014
Von Joseph Morgan - Veröffentlicht auf
As one of fewer than 50 physicians in the US certified in cannabinoid medicine by the Amer Assoc of Cannabinoid Medicine, I recommend this book to physicians, other health care professionals, policy makers, and patients. This book summarizes and communicates the state of the art of cannabis medicine as of roughly early 2013. It is much easier to read and in many ways more practical than such academic books as "Marijuana and Cannabinoid Research: Methods and Protocols" edited by Prof. Emmanuel Onaivi (whose work is advancing knowledge of the CB2 receptor in the CNS) or "Cannabinoids in Nature and Medicine edited by Didier Lambert. Backes' book bridges and updates the clinical knowledge in the aforementioned books as well as less academic and non academic books including multiple chapter authors in "The Pot Book" by Julia Holland or Martin Lee's Smoke Signals, and Irv Rosenfelds's classic, "My Medicine," respectively.

The use of Medical cannabis in the USA goes back to the pre Civil War era, as reprinted in the late Dr Todd Mikuriya's "Medical Marijuana Papers", pre-WW1 medical and pharmacy textbooks, and summarized by Dr David Bearman in "Demons, Discrimination, and Dollars" (and expanded upon his soon to be published illustrated .much expanded version.

As the unscientific, politically motivated stigmas, and legal status of Cannabis-based medicine is rapidly changing, this book and others should be considered essential reading by those who care for those who suffer, those who believe that people ought to not be criminalized for growing a handful of medicinal plants to treat insomnia, neuropathic and other types of chronic pain, reduce opiate use, alcoholic cravings, PTSD, traumatic brain injury/stroke/cardiac ischemia/reperfusion injuries, (search pubmed for research by Prof Yosef Sarne), and enhance feelings of well-being.

Backes discusses the importance of the US federal patent, "Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants", cannabidiol (CBD), other emerging cannabinoids: THCA, THCV, CBN, GBG, CBD, CBDA, and CBDV, and a few terpenes.

An omission includes the implications on benefits and risks by the confounding of much marijuana, including literature assessments by undocumented and underdocumented contamination of smoked or ingested plan by pesticides, other chemicals, fungi, and bacteria.(Reference and the scientific presentations by organic chemist Jeff Raber)

About me: A semi-retired physician who has spent the bulk of my career as a drug safety expert and clinical researcher in the pharmaceutical industry, I am looking to license my submitted patent application for use of the plant and/or isolated cannabinoids to treat nerve agent neurotoxicity: "Use of Cannabinoids and terpenes for the treatment of organophosphate toxicity" Attention VC: based on the rules of the
FDA's CounterACT program, my patent meets the criteria be developed into a FDA-approved drug without costly and time-consuming human trials!

Info on therapeutic use of cannabinoids and terpenes in this book should be updated every couple of years as practical cannabinoid medicine is advancing rapidly on the west coast USA, in Israel (thanks to the pioneering work in the endocannabinoid system by Prof R. Mechoulam), Spain, Scotland, Uruguay, in Canada, and in England (thanks to GW Pharma), and indeed all over the world where science, a true doctor/patient relationship, and medicinal plant research are permitted.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Extremely helpful guide to using Cannabis medicinally 5. November 2014
Von Scarlett - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased this book as I have a family member who has been suffering from Osteoporosis. Traditional pain killers have not been effective and/or are too strong and/or have other unpleasant side affects, so was hoping this book would teach me more about how to effectively use cannabis to help manage pain.

I found the book smart, well-written and informative. I would suggest this book to people with medical problems where traditional methods of managing pain (and other things) have failed, or those who would rather pursue a more natural route.

5.0 von 5 Sternen At last a book that explains the details of cannabis 14. Oktober 2014
Von Libby Bly - Veröffentlicht auf
My daughter sent this book to me. I found it well written and easy to follow, even as it goes into some of the intricacies of cannabis science. One of the most interesting things to me about Cannabis Pharmacy is that it conveys the long tradition of using cannabis to treat symptoms of so many medical conditions, even though the mechanisms of how cannabis works medicinally are only now being discovered. I also appreciated that the book presents a balanced view of the effectiveness of cannabis and isn't afraid to be critical of over-the-top claims. It is clear after reading this book that there are many misconceptions about using medical cannabis and that this book goes a long way towards dispelling them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen He worked with one of the greatest science fiction writers of all time 7. September 2014
Von R. Olson - Veröffentlicht auf
Mike Backes is a gifted communicator of science and this is a landmark book that will help a lot of people. Just look at his background for starters -- he's not your average pot fan. He worked with one of the greatest science fiction writers of all time, Michael Crichton. He co-wrote the screenplay for the movie adaptation of his book, "Rising Sun" and was part of the graphics design team on the movie, "Jurassic Park." Now he brings those communication talents to this important issue of medical marijuana, and he does so in a friendly, practical way, delivering large amounts of information to people who need it.

His timing with this book couldn't be better as 2014 seems to be the year where medical marijuana has emerged from the shadows into mainstream culture. For me personally, my entire perspective has changed over the past year. I have a friend who at age 50 last year was diagnosed with colon cancer. She's a fairly conservative person who had never smoked more than a novelty amount of marijuana in her life. She endured her entire six months of chemotherapy and radiation treatment without losing any weight or showing the normal decline seen in cancer patients. She credits it entirely to the role of medical marijuana. She had a friend who stepped in at the start, showed her the value of it, helped her purchase it, then coached her all the way through. Her experience certainly changed my entire opinion of the subject.

So this is exactly the book that is now needed, for one big reason which is spelled out on the cover, "Evidence-based information on using cannabis for ailment and conditions." Marijuana has been subjected to a smear campaign for over a half century. It's time for the facts to prevail. I remember in college in the 1970's a friend had a Playboy cartoon of two policemen talking -- one asks the other if he's ever tried marijauna, he replies, "Yeah, it made me want to rape and kill."

I can't think of any better possible expert for conveying the evidence-based truth than Backes, and of course his level of expertise is validated by having Andrew Weil write the forward.

The book design is excellent -- very visual, great graphics, easily readable, and with a friendly, conversational voice. Weil has a great line in his forward, saying, "During it's long exile, cannabis was falsely characterized as a dangerous narcotic." He tells about how the American Medical Association in 1942 fought to keep cannabis as a legitimate medicinal drug, but lost its battle, leading to the 70 year exile. But now at last the madness has ended, reason is prevailing, and not a moment too soon for people like my friend dealing with cancer.

I was first stunned by the depth and level of knowledge Mike had developed of medical marijuana about 5 years ago when I saw a half hour interview with him on an internet show called, "Dangerous Minds." He spoke about it in such detail from his work with a medical marijuana cooperative, yet he also spoke in a way that was so easily understandable that when this book emerged I found it not at all surprising how well it is written. I strongly recommend you get a copy, if for no other reason than to broaden your perspective and realize how much the times have now changed. Medical marijuana is at last on it's way back into our medicine cabinets, as it should have been for the past century.
