Pre-publication praise for Cannabis Pharmacy: "[T]horough, accurate, and yet easy to read coverage of what every prescribing physician and patient needs to know about medical marijuana, its metabolism and effects, its risks and possible benefits, along with cautions and details about available forms and modes of administration." —Sander Greenland, Professor Emeritus, Fielding School of Public Health, University of California, Los Angeles "Michael Backes presents much valuable knowledge collected from diverse disciplines, supporting present-day practical approaches to effectively using medical cannabis—most importantly, which varieties may work best for certain medical conditions—and prepares us for what to expect in the near future. Cannabis Pharmacy is well written, informative, and most of all a timely as well as a fascinating read." — Robert C. Clarke, Projects Manager, International Hemp Association, and author of Cannabis: Evolution and Ethnobotany "A superbly written and easily accessible expert guide filled with practical know-how . . . It will undoubtedly become an essential foundational educational text about the value and depth of the human–cannabis relationship, and how to apply the very best of what is known about medical cannabis to maximize health and well-being." —Sunil Kumar Aggarwal, MD, PhD, medical cannabis expert, www.cannabinergy.com "Crucial reading for anyone interested in cannabis and the new frontier of cannabis medicine." —Mark Haskell Smith, author of Heart of Dankness: Underground Botanists, Outlaw Farmers, and the Race for the Cannabis Cup "Now, more than ever, people need clear, well researched, unbiased, factual reporting about the benefits and drawbacks of marijuana use. This book provides that . . . [It] is destined to become the standard work on the subject." —Barry Miles, author of Call Me Burroughs, founder of the Indica Bookstore, and Beats historian "There is now so much science supporting the legalization and acceptance of medical marijuana use, yet not enough effective communication . . . Cannabis Pharmacy excels at filling that need." —Randy Olson, author of Don't Be Such A Scientist: Talking Substance in the Age of Style "An excellent compendium for anyone considering—or using—medical marijuana. Highly recommended." —Martin A. Lee, director of Project CBD and author of Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana
