Handbook of Cannabis Therapeutics: From Bench to Bedside

Handbook of Cannabis Therapeutics: From Bench to Bedside

Ethan B. Russo Franjo Grotenhermen
4.5/5 (2 ratings)
Learn the facts behind the pharmacology and pharmacokinetics of controversial cannabis therapeutics
The Handbook of Cannabis Therapeutics: From Bench to Bedside sets aside the condemnation and hysteria of society's view of cannabis to concentrate on the medically sound aspects of cannabis therapeutics. The world's foremost experts provide a reasoned, thoroughly researched overview of the controversial subject of cannabis, from its history as a medicine through its latest therapeutic uses. The latest studies on the botany, history, biochemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, clinical use for various illnesses such as AIDS, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis, and side effects of marijuana are all examined and discussed in depth.
This comprehensive resource is a compendium of articles from the Journal of Cannabis Therapeutics— with additional contemporary commentary. It presents startling research that explores and supports the medicinal value of cannabis use and its derivatives as a valid therapeutic resource for pain and inflammation, for several illnesses less responsive to other therapies, and even for certain veterinary uses. Cannabinoids such as nabilone, THC, levonantradol, ajulemic acid, dexanabinal, and others are extensively described, with a review of new indications for cannabinoid pharmaceuticals. The book is carefully referenced to encourage your examination of previous studies and provides tables and figures to enhance understanding of information.
The Handbook of Cannabis Therapeutics discusses:
the uses of cannabis in Arabic, Greek, Roman, and early English medicines
absorption rates
pharmacokinetics
pharmacodynamics
separate extractsversus the use of cannabis in its entirety
the therapeutic value of the endocannabinoid system
cannabinoids and newborn feeding
a comparison of smoking versus oral preparations
clinical research data on eating cannabis
therapeutic uses as appetite stimulant
treatments in obstetrics and gynecology
medicinal treatments used in Jamaica
the use of cannabis in the treatment of multiple sclerosis
the benefits versus the adverse side effects of cannabis use
The Handbook of Cannabis Therapeutics is a reference work certain to become crucial to physicians, psychologists, researchers, biochemists, graduate students, and interested members of the public."This handbook diligently gathers THE WRITINGS OF MANY OF THE WORLD'S FOREMOST AUTHORITIES on cannabis and cannabinoid therapeutics, offering a COMPREHENSIVE AND UNIQUE look into the plant's history, pharmacokinetics, and potential clinical applications. It lifts the smoky haze of political and ideological rhetoric away from the cannabis debate, and provides an OBJECTIVE, SCIENTIFIC, AND LONG-OVERDUE review of marijuana's extraordinary history, pharmacology, and merit as a therapeutic agent. Of particular interest are the contributors' views on the possible synergistic effects of cannabinoids as therapeutic agents, as well as their insight on the endogenous cannabinoid system and its potential role in the maintenance of man's most essential biological functions." — Paul Armentano, Senior Policy Analyst, NORML / NORML Foundation"AUTHORITATIVE . . . . These contributions have been chosen to cover a wide range of possible therapeutic uses of cannabis from several perspectives: historical, pharmacological, and medical, as well as presenting a brief foray into the world of endogenous cannabinoids. Enhancing the usefulness of this book is the brief update that the editor provides following each chapter, greatly improving the timeliness of the contributions." — Ken Mackie, MD, Professor, Department of Anesthesiology and Adjunct Professor, Department of Physiology and Biophysics, University of Washington
