About the book: 

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 grows in popularity and legality, 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 explores the cannabis varietals most effective for treating various conditions; shows how to identify those varietals; and describes how to prepare and store the varietal, how best to administer the preparation, and how to modify and control dosage. Also included is a guide to treating 29 ailments and illnesses for which doctors commonly recommend medical marijuana, including Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, 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.
