About the book:
Cannabis as Medicine: It History and Science presents the plant’s historical uses as medicine and the modern, peer-reviewed scientific evidence confirming its medicinal properties. A detailed review of the scientific basis documents the concept that cannabis is a safe and potentially useful medicine. More than 1000 references provide the peer-reviewed evidence supporting the medicinal potential of cannabis.

Cannabis as medicine is an indispensable resource for doctors, nurses, scientists, and others involved in recommending medicinal cannabis to their patients. Clinical researchers will find it valuable in finding new therapies for conditions such as cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, PTSD, and MRSA infections.

“An outstanding book by Dr. Thomas … very well written in a style that is easy to follow. The author points out that clinical studies have lagged behind preclinical research. He sharply analyzes the reasons for this inequality – politically and bureaucratically in many countries, especially in the USA. “- Raphael Mechoulam, Ph.D. Professor of Medicinal Chemistry, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

“A stunning historical record of the use of cannabis as medicine and the latest science behind its modern medical uses.” Keith Stroup, Esq., Legal Advisor, NORML
