About as in depth as you can get without a college course. Broken down in “makes sense” chapters, starting with “How Best To Use This Book” it’s a full course on the history of usage on up to its “Future Frontier” with enough information between to make you the most interesting person at your next night out with the gang.
Giving it’s chemical make-up and how that can vary by strain, along with cases of cures due to such, I’m thinking this should be sent to every legislative Say So in the country

A great book to get you started in learning about CBD. Even though this book is focused on the CBD side of cannabis and hemp, it talks a lot about THC and all the other cannabinoids in cannabis because they can work better together. The holistic, whole-plant importance was very interesting to me. The book is laid out to explain the different methods of using CBD/cannabinoids (topical, vapor, edibles, etc) as well as what research is available/has been done (while also recognizing that it needs m ...more

I am new to the CBD treatments. I have a lot of friends and family with issues that might be resolved or at least treated with these methods. The book isn't a cover to cover read. It is a resource for learning more about the different kinds of plants and doses. There are sections that are very specific for each kind of ailment and this is how I used it. I have since passed it on to friends who also have family members who are researching this old but new to us medicine. I will take it to my fami ...more

I won this on GoodReads.

As a nurse, patients and families as for my opinion on medical marijuana. “I have no clue” is not a very good answer. I found Leinow and Birbaum’s "CBD: A Patient’s Guide to Medical Cannabis", to be very helpful and informative. It also gives a starting point for further research. This book covers diseases that may be helped by marijuana, CBD to THC ratio (I didn’t know it made a difference), and a range of other useful information. This is a good source of basic informat

This is an excellent book who wants an introduction into cannabis. From history to properties, methods of consumption this book presents a thorough brief overview into the plant with excellent citations.

At times the science is presented in a way that's difficult to take apart and there is the occasional bit of new age spirituality that felt superfluous. But I still found the book fascinating and I would recommend it to someone wanting to learn more about this topic.

I got this book for a friend who is recovering from leukemia treatments. What a wealth of well-organized information!

Who knew __ not I __ that medicinal cannabis can assist in the treatment of so many conditions? Has so many varieties? Can be taken in so many ways?

In addition to covering all this, the handbook gives detailed dosage guidelines and guidance for use with animals.

Something for everyone.

I really liked the book, especially because it focuses completely on the medical side of Cannabis. I already had a decent amount of knowledge about cannabis but CBD was pretty new to me. I would recommend this book, but you have to be interested in Cannabis/CBD to like it. Because of this book, I even ordered a full spectrum Liposomal from https://www.cibdol.com/ because it's said to work best, even with lower amounts of CBD. (Yes I have actually learned from it) ...more

This book was extremely helpful in understanding how to begin using medical CBD oil, something I have been interested in trying, to manage my Hashimoto's thyroditis, and chronic nerve pain. It was easy to understand, and very informative, for someone who has no prior experience using CBD oil. It has dosage charts, and great explanations of the charts.

Thank you to the publisher, whom I received the book from, through a Goodreads giveaway.

Very informative and highlights how the cannaboids of marijuana are very beneficial and necessary for many pathologies.

I read this because I'm a diagnosed migraine suffered and a little annoyed by the same prescription drugs i take that aren't always convenient. Learned more about helping myself. Been also studying cannabis oil for use as topical treatment in my profession as a licensed massage therapist. Definitely gave me a lot to think about.

This book is one that you can jump to the pages or subjects that really interest you and not be completely lost. I have learned a lot about THC/CBD and really enjoying reading this book. It is too technical for me in some parts, so I'm just jumping over the pages/chapters I don't need but still gaining a lot of information to educate myself on the use of CBD for my pain management and anxiety issues. ...more
