As a British psychiatrist, I enjoyed reading this new book.

I believe it will become an important bible for clinicians who may prescribe Medicinal Marijuana.

I was impressed by how well you balanced the scientific issues alongside personal reflections and the latest evidence-based clinical approaches to illnesses that can benefit from Medicinal Marijuana.

I like the fact that in this book you’re recommending marijuana not as just an anti-anxiety medication, but as a vehicle to help explore the underlying issues.

Barbara Harris provides an excellent resource that cuts through old myths and misinformation to give the reader her well-informed considerations for exploring the new world of medicinal marijuana use.

With the increasing number of states and countries legalizing marijuana for medicinal use comes the urgent need for reliable information and guidance on the positive uses of marijuana and the dangers as well.

Barbara writes from her personal and professional experience, generously sharing her great wisdom distilled from a lifetime of experience.
This is a great book for anyone interested in marijuana use, not abuse.

Please note that this book is not a book about abusing medicinal marijuana, or marijuana in general.  It’s not a book about “getting high.”  It was written with data-based and peer reviewed evidence specifically for those who use medicinal marijuana as an adjunct for the treatment of conditions for which it has been indicated and expands and clarifies information about the non-psychoactive properties of CBD (cannabidiol) which are also used for a growing number of problems and conditions.

I work for a company that is drug free and live in a state where this is not a legal treatment. After reading this book it sure has opened my eyes as to the endless possibilities and effects that legalizing could have on so many that suffer endless years of pain, seizures, etc.

As with all drugs in a controlled and monitored environment this can offer relief without the side effects that we see today from the heavy narcotics being used but so many patients.

If only for the knowledge, I strongly recommend this book!
