12 in stock (can be backordered)
The first foundational text on the use of cannabis and other cannabinoid therapies.
Despite nearly 5,000 years of recorded use as a medicine and its impressive versatility, efficacy, and safety, cannabis sativa has existed outside the modern pharmacopeia since the 1940s. Primarily driven by popular demand, this botanical medicine has returned to health care, but most clinicians lack the knowledge essential for guiding patients, identifying candidates for treatment, maximizing benefit, and minimizing harm.
Dustin Sulak provides health care professionals?including physicians, psychologists, pharmacists, and nurses?with an accessible and evidence-based reference that will empower them to intelligently discuss cannabis with their patients, and implement cannabinoid therapies with confidence. The book combines fundamental paradigms of integrative medicine, botanical medicine, systems biology, and network pharmacology to help providers navigate the unique challenges in cannabinoid medicine, such as the quickly changing regulatory framework and heterogenous availability of dependable cannabis-based treatments.
Dustin Sulak, DO, is a renowned expert on medical cannabis and integrative medicine. His practice balances the principles of osteopathy, mind-body medicine, and medical cannabis, and his training is in nutrition science, biology, and family medicine.
