More About the Book

As the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes continues across the United States, the need for a medical marijuana handbook written by physicians with expertise in prescribing medical marijuana is vital. Named one of Washingtonian Magazine’s Top Docs since 2012, Dr. Matthew L. Mintz offers expert advice on using medical marijuana and CBD to treat a variety of illnesses. Designed for readers seeking a straightforward perspective on the pros and cons of medical cannabis use, how to use it, and where to get it, Medical Marijuana and CBD cuts through the mysteries of the dosages, effects, and results of employing medical marijuana for treatment purposes. Whether you want a book about natural healing products, need advice on the safe use of medical cannabis, or have questions about using medical cannabis for chronic pain, the answers you seek can be found in this comprehensive guide.

Medical marijuana has been used for centuries. Even in the early 1900s, it was a common ingredient in over-the-counter elixirs. Now, as medical marijuana is legalized in more states and the use of related products like CBD become popular, many people who never considered using cannabis before are discovering how it can help them. But too often, guides on the subject fail to give advice about its specific use, effects, and results. Dr. Matthew L. Mintz actively prescribes and treats patients with medical marijuana and CBD. In this comprehensive medical guide, he answers questions about cannabis and its components and addresses the biological basis for its efficacy and relative safety in comparison with other drugs. Whether you’re a first-time medical cannabis user, a patient reluctant to use marijuana, or someone considering CBD as a last resort, Dr. Mintz’ expert advice can help you navigate the pros and cons, the therapeutic areas, and the science behind the use of medical marijuana.
