An estimated 40 million Americans have medical symptoms that marijuana can relieve. Marijuana Medical Handbook is a one-stop resource that gives candid, objective advice on using marijuana for healing, understanding its effects on the body, safe administration, targeting illnesses, side effects, and the various delivery methods from edibles and tinctures to smokeless vaporizer pipes. The book also details supply issues, cultivation solutions (in a chapter by renowned expert Ed Rosenthal), and legal consequences. This thoroughly revised edition incorporates the most up-to-date information on the ever-changing politics of marijuana, the plant's usage, and medical research on it.

    Since I am currently undergoing chemo therapy for Non Hodgkins Lymphoma, I have had reservations or fears about using marijuana for my symptoms. I tried it. And it helped immensely! But I was still worried about all of the negative info that I have been taught over the years. I have heard of current research that refutes a majority of the old information about the negative effects of marijuana. So I wanted to know more before I made up my mind as to wether it was a wise choice to continue using it. This book discusses some of that new information and helps to make sense of it. It also discusses legality, drug testing, and many other subjects that a user should be aware of.
