Chronic Relief: A Guide to Cannabis for the Terminally and Chronically Ill bridges the gap between the vast amounts of cannabis science and practical application for patients. The book translates medical science into layman’s terms in a way that patients and their caregivers can understand and use to decide if cannabis is a fit for them, how to choose intake methods, understand risks and harm reduction strategies, and where to start in terms of establishing an effective dose. Where science does not exist, it provides the best possible anecdotal information compiled from experts and patients alike.
People from all backgrounds are curious about cannabis. And, beginning to realize that much of the information they have been taught about cannabis is based on misinformation and fear — not science and reason. It is time we bring science to the forefront of the conversation about cannabis and dissolve the cloud of shame, secrecy and controversy around the use of this legitimate medicine and empower millions of people to get the relief they deserve.
