A safe, comprehensive, and easy-to-use guide to using cannabis—including CBD and THC—to ease chronic and acute health issues such as pain, insomnia, inflammation, depression, anxiety, grief, stress, and more, from the founder of a global cannabis wellness network and an osteopathic physician.

With legalization of recreational cannabis in 10 states plus Washington D.C. and medical marijuana in 33 states, interest is growing in cannabis-related health products, especially those made with CBD—a cannabinoid that has healing properties without the mind-altering effects of THC. Cannabis and CBD for Health and Wellness demystifies cannabis and its history, and explains in simple and straightforward language how to use it to treat myriad health and wellness issues.

With information on cannabis forms (tinctures, topicals, edibles, flower, concentrates), methods of ingestion (smoking, vaping, capusles, patches, creams, and more), dosing and microdosing, safety and storage, caregiving, and effectivess for self-care, physical fitness, sexual arousal, aging, and more, this is the only book you need to start using cannabis—in a targeted and safe way—for better health.
