Marijuana. It's been called a gateway drug, an introduction to the world of harder illegal drugs. Yet many people consider it to be a safe drug—at least safer than heroin, LSD, or cocaine. However, while marijuana might not be directly responsible for causing any deaths, the consequences of its use can be detrimental to the lives of its users. This book describes the history of marijuana use, the dangers of its use, and the legal consequences. You'll also learn about the controversies surrounding the drug—including the issues of decriminalization and the use of medical marijuana. Treatment options for marijuana dependency are also discussed

Some people suffer from chronic, debilitating disorders for which no conventional treatment brings relief. Can marijuana ease their symptoms? Would it be breaking the law to turn to marijuana as a medication? There are few sources of objective, scientifically sound advice for people in this situation. Most books about marijuana and medicine attempt to promote the views of advocates or opponents. To fill the gap between these extremes, authors Alison Mack and Janet Joy have extracted critical findings from a recent Institute of Medicine study on this important issue, interpreting them for a general audience. Marijuana As Medicine? provides patients--as well as the people who care for them--with a foundation for making decisions about their own health care. This empowering volume examines several key points, including: Whether marijuana can relieve a variety of symptoms, including pain, muscle spasticity, nausea, and appetite loss. The dangers of smoking marijuana, as well as the effects of its active chemical components on the immune system and on psychological health. The potential use of marijuana-based medications on symptoms of AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and several other specific disorders, in comparison with existing treatments. Marijuana As Medicine? introduces readers to the active compounds in marijuana. These include the principal ingredient in Marinol, a legal medication. The authors also discuss the prospects for developing other drugs derived from marijuana's active ingredients. In addition to providing an up-to-date review of the science behind the medical marijuana debate, Mack and Joy also answer common questions about the legal status of marijuana, explaining the conflict between state and federal law regarding its medical use. Intended primarily as an aid to patients and caregivers, this book objectively presents critical information so that it can be used to make responsible health care decisions. Marijuana As Medicine? will also be a valuable resource for policymakers, health care providers, patient counselors, medical faculty and students--in short, anyone who wants to learn more about this important issue.

Significant changes have taken place in the policy landscape surrounding cannabis legalization, production, and use. During the past 20 years, 25 states and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis and/or cannabidiol (a component of cannabis) for medical conditions or retail sales at the state level and 4 states have legalized both the medical and recreational use of cannabis. These landmark changes in policy have impacted cannabis use patterns and perceived levels of risk. However, despite this changing landscape, evidence regarding the short- and long-term health effects of cannabis use remains elusive. While a myriad of studies have examined cannabis use in all its various forms, often these research conclusions are not appropriately synthesized, translated for, or communicated to policy makers, health care providers, state health officials, or other stakeholders who have been charged with influencing and enacting policies, procedures, and laws related to cannabis use. Unlike other controlled substances such as alcohol or tobacco, no accepted standards for safe use or appropriate dose are available to help guide individuals as they make choices regarding the issues of if, when, where, and how to use cannabis safely and, in regard to therapeutic uses, effectively. Shifting public sentiment, conflicting and impeded scientific research, and legislative battles have fueled the debate about what, if any, harms or benefits can be attributed to the use of cannabis or its derivatives, and this lack of aggregated knowledge has broad public health implications. The Health Effects of Cannabis and Cannabinoids provides a comprehensive review of scientific evidence related to the health effects and potential therapeutic benefits of cannabis. This report provides a research agendaâ€"outlining gaps in current knowledge and opportunities for providing additional insight into these issuesâ€"that summarizes and prioritizes pressing research needs.

Cannabis, also known as marijuana or weed, is a mind-altering drug that comes from either the Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica plant. These plants have been widely used for centuries for both medicinal and recreational use. While many people choose to smoke or vape cannabis, edibles have grown in popularity. These edibles often contain cannabutter a cannabis-infused butter that can be purchased at a local cannabis dispensary or made at home. Still, keep in mind that cannabis is illegal in many states and countries, so always check with your local government before using it or related products.As the name implies, cannabutter is a combination of cannabis and butter. Its most commonly used to make cannabis edibles, particularly baked goods like cookies and brownies. Before buying or making cannabutter, you should decide what effects you're hoping to experience. Cannabis contains two main compounds known as cannabinoids - tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). THC is a psychoactive compound that leads to a high, while CBD is not mind-altering. Depending on its intended use, cannabutter may contain only CBD or both CBD and THC. Cannabutter is cannabis-infused butter. It can contain only CBD, which isn't psychoactive, or both CBD and THC, which gives it mind-altering properties.

The medical use of marijuana is surrounded by a cloud of social, political, and religious controversy, which obscures the facts that should be considered in the debate. This book summarizes what we know about marijuana from evidence-based medicine--the harm it may do and the relief it may bring to patients. The book helps the reader understand not only what science has to say about medical marijuana but also the logic behind the scientific conclusions. Marijuana and Medicine addresses the science base and the therapeutic effects of marijuana use for medical conditions such as glaucoma and multiple sclerosis. It covers marijuana's mechanism of action, acute and chronic effects on health and behavior, potential adverse effects, efficacy of different delivery systems, analysis of the data about marijuana as a gateway drug, and the prospects for developing cannabinoid drugs. The book evaluates how well marijuana meets accepted standards for medicine and considers the conclusions of other blue-ribbon panels. Full of useful facts, this volume will be important to anyone interested in informed debate about the medical use of marijuana: advocates and opponents as well as policymakers, regulators, and health care providers.

Although primarily used today as one of the most prevalent illicit leisure drugs, the use of Cannabis sativa L., commonly referred to as marijuana, for medicinal purposes has been reported for more than 5000 years. Marijuana use has been shown to create numerous health problems, and, consequently, the expanding use beyond medical purposes into recreational use (abuse) resulted in control of the drug through international treaties. Much research has been carried out over the past few decades following the identification of the chemical structure of THC in 1964. The purpose of Marijuana and the Cannabinoids is to present in a single volume the comprehensive knowledge and experience of renowned researchers and scientists. Each chapter is written independently by an expert in his/her field of endeavor, ranging from the botany, the constituents, the chemistry and pharmacokinetics, the effects and consequences of illicit use on the human body, to the therapeutic potential of the cannabinoids.

The myths and misinformation about marijuana have only multiplied over the years as the controversy over legalization and medical marijuana grows.A nationally recognized clinical expert and leading researcher on marijuana, Kevin P. Hill provides a comprehensive guide to understanding the drug in Marijuana: Cutting through the Myths about the World’s Most Popular Weed.

Getting high with pot is enjoyable, mostly safe and perfectly okay, as millions of us know. However, the problem is, (other than being illegal in most states): we keep coming down! So what can we do about that? Read, "The Potless Pot High!" This book will help anyone (pot user or not) to get high, clear and spunky without weed, without the hassle of marijuana or other "get high" drugs. This book offers five different games to play to catch an easy, natural, grinning "Daily Buzz." This book offers a progressive series of mental, emotional and physical techniques that spontaneously bring about a natural, easy and effortless "potless pot high," or "higher consciousness" very similar to that attained through marijuana. These simple techniques have been proven to take the user to higher, steadier, clearer, more enjoyable states than those experienced with marijuana. What makes this book unique is the recognition that the use of marijuana--- and other mind-altering substances and mind altering activities--- even for long periods of time, are engaged first of all because they are mostly enjoyable (that's why so many do it!) but also because such changes in consciousness may be psychologically necessary, perhaps even biologically programmed. (As Wavy Gravy put it, "Only the jailers are against escape." ) Yes, changing states of mind is basically healthy and evolutionarily imperative. Thus, the Potless Pot High contains no condemnation for pot smoking, only an honest and thorough appraisal of its short and long term effects, both pro and con, on mind, body and social relationships. Chapter titles include, "The First Head Rush," "Rest in Peace, Timothy Leary," "All You Need Is Love (and a Little Toke, )" "Your Brain on Drugs: Enjoying Alpha, Beta, Theta, and Those Sweet, Sweet Gamma Waves," "Opening Our Brain Gates: How Pot-and the Potless Games-Dissolve Cultural Addiction," and "Is All Marijuana Use Medicinal?" The white-haired author first smoked pot before he was able to vote. He was a long-term addictions counselor and is now a deeply experienced marijuana researcher and non-duality teacher and practitioner. "I got a buzz just reading this book," one early reviewer commented.

Marijuana: Effects on Human Behavior attempts to synthesize much of the existing experimentation concerning the acute and chronic effects of marijuana and its derivatives on human behavior. The book opens with a chapter on the strategies for conducting research on marijuana. It also describes a clinical study at the University of British Columbia. The next chapter discusses the issues that have beclouded the question of legalization of marijuana in the United States. This is followed by separate chapters on the effects of marijuana on motor and mental performance; marijuana-memory research; a model of attention which can be used to describe the effects of marijuana use on cognition; and the effects of marijuana on neuropsychological functioning and learning. Subsequent chapters examine the behavioral actions of cannabis in man; compare the behavioral actions of cannabinoids in humans with those found in infrahumans, with special reference to acquisition and retention processes, timing behavior, state-dependent learning, and attention; and investigate the long-term effects of cannabis use.

Marijuana comes from the dried flowering tops, leaves, stems, and seeds of the Cannabis sativa (hemp) plant.Humans have used marijuana for hundreds of years for fiber (hemp), seed oils, seed, medical treatment, and recreationally.There is some evidence that marijuana or some of its components - such as CBD - may be useful for relieving severe pain, inflammation, nausea, and chronic conditions.However, CBD is just one of at least 120 substances (cannabinoids) found in marijuana. People have many health concerns about the use of the drug.Another primary component of marijuana is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).THC is the key mind-altering (psychoactive) substance in marijuana. It acts on specific brain receptors, causing possible mood changes, depression, suicidal thinking, memory issues, and disruption to normal learning abilities.

Cannabis: Evolution and Ethnobotany is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary exploration of the natural origins and early evolution of this famous plant, highlighting its historic role in the development of human societies. Cannabis has long been prized for the strong and durable fiber in its stalks, its edible and oil-rich seeds, and the psychoactive and medicinal compounds produced by its female flowers. The culturally valuable and often irreplaceable goods derived from cannabis deeply influenced the commercial, medical, ritual, and religious practices of cultures throughout the ages, and human desire for these commodities directed the evolution of the plant toward its contemporary varieties. As interest in cannabis grows and public debate over its many uses rises, this book will help us understand why humanity continues to rely on this plant and adapts it to suit our needs.
