Pre-publication praise for "Cannabis Pharmacy" "[T]horough, accurate, and yet easy to read coverage of what every prescribing physician and patient needs to know about medical marijuana, its metabolism and effects, its risks and possible benefits, along with cautions and details about available forms and modes of administration." --Sander Greenland, Professor Emeritus, Fielding School of Public Health, University of California, Los Angeles "Michael Backes presents much valuable knowledge collected from diverse disciplines, supporting present-day practical approaches to effectively using medical cannabis--most importantly, which varieties may work best for certain medical conditions--and prepares us for what to expect in the near future. Cannabis Pharmacy is well written, informative, and most of all a timely as well as a fascinating read." -- Robert C. Clarke, Projects Manager, International Hemp Association, and author of "Cannabis: Evolution and Ethnobotany" "A superbly written and easily accessible expert guide filled with practical know-how . . . It will undoubtedly become an essential foundational educational text about the value and depth of the human-cannabis relationship, and how to apply the very best of what is known about medical cannabis to maximize health and well-being." --Sunil Kumar Aggarwal, MD, PhD, medical cannabis expert, www.cannabinergy.com "Crucial reading for anyone interested in cannabis and the new frontier of cannabis medicine." --Mark Haskell Smith, author of "Heart of Dankness: Underground Botanists, Outlaw Farmers, and the Race for the Cannabis Cup" "Now, more than ever, people need clear, well researched, unbiased, factual reporting about the benefits and drawbacks of marijuana use. This book provides that . . . [It] is destined to become the standard work on the subject." --Barry Miles, author of "Call Me Burroughs," founder of the Indica Bookstore, and Beats historian "There is now so much science supporting the legalization and acceptance of medical marijuana use, yet not enough effective communication . . . Cannabis Pharmacy excels at filling that need." --Randy Olson, author of "Don't Be Such A Scientist: Talking Substance in the Age of Style" "An excellent compendium for anyone considering--or using--medical marijuana. Highly recommended." --Martin A. Lee, director of Project CBD and author of "Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana"

Everything went smoothly, with great customer service. Really enjoyed it, as for the book I only took a glance at it right now, but as far as I can see it is exactly what I hoped for - a short, concise compendium of treatments. My father has alzheimers desease, and I wish the book would've found its way to me earlier...

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 Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
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 www.thewercshop.com 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 Amazon.com
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 Fact/Science Based information for those new to Medical Cannabis 20. Dezember 2014
Von MMJ Refugee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Being a 2014 release, this has some of the most up-to-date information about the medicinal applications of cannabis, in spite of the fact that even more information has been released since the final edit of this book.

The book is not cut up into a bunch of chapters, but four loosely defined “Parts”.

In Part 1, you get a conglomeration of cannabis history and biology, but quickly switches up into how cannabinoids work in the body and how they even interact with some prescribed and over-the-counter medications. A good explanation of terpenes and how they augment the affects of the cannabis in the body is here too. Possibly the best book dealing with the “adverse effects” of short-term and long-term use, along with a good few paragraphs about “over-medication” or that bad trip.

Part 2 is interesting in its own right. It is titled, “Using Medical Cannabis”, and goes through all the basics that a newbie would have to figure out on their own. Short of having an experienced user to guide you, this is practically the next best thing. Good few pages on contaminants, pesticides, and other adulterants, particularly useful for underground users depending on an unregulated black market for their medicine.

“Varieties of Medical Cannabis”, Part 3 is a complete section on common strains and what they are used for. If I have a complaint, it is with this section. Many of the strains mentioned are all old standbys. With all the creative crosses and private grows, you find many non-name and designer strains being used in the medical cannabis community. More information about that, crossed with the terpene section, would have been best to allow a nuanced understanding of how that is linked. You are left to extrapolate everything on your own.

Part 4 is where the major component and value of this book comes in, with the “Medical Uses of Cannabis”. This is a fairly comprehensive list of varioius ailments and medical conditions that are treated with medicinal cannabis and the corresponding strains good for those specific conditions. This covers many of the new hot-button studies recently covering anxiety, Alzheimer’s, autism, fibromyalgia, Hep C, MS, Parkinson’s, and PTSD.

If you have a family member that is looking for good science based information on using cannabis medicinally, this is a fantastic primer.

Most of the information is out there on the internet, but you have to put the pieces together. This is all packaged for you in an easy to read, casual format.

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 Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen At last a book that explains the details of cannabis 14. Oktober 2014
Von Libby Bly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
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.
