With more than four million medical marijuana patients nationally, and increased legislation each year, understanding this field is more important than ever. Terminal cancer, chronic headaches, Parkinson’s disease, and dozens of other ailments can be treated with medical marijuana use. Michael Backes’s Cannabis Pharmacy: The Practical Guide to Medical Marijuana is an inside look at these ailments, medical marijuana best practices around the country, and the most popular strains of cannabis out there. He’ll also offer insight into the future of the human-cannabis relationship. His well-researched, “superbly written, and easily accessible” guide to the pharmaceutical is “crucial reading” for anyone interested in understanding medical marijuana. Backes, head of research and development for the medical marijuana clinic Abatin Wellness Center, was also the founder of Cornerstone Collective, California’s first research-based medical cannabis collective.
