<p><strong>Can Medical Cannabis help you? Forty-four states and the District of Columbia have legalized some form of Medical Cannabis for treatment of serious conditions.</strong> Pain, cancer, sleep disturbance, mood disorders, epilepsy, osteoporosis, anxiety disorders, and many others are all conditions that may be helped by this treatment. Author Dr. Michael Moskowitz reviews the science of our own built in cannabinoid system, then launches into practical topics, including medical cannabis treatment, dispensary management, paraphernalia, embodiments, routes of administration, and DIY treatment. He covers the complexities of state laws, learning the phases of treatment, working with dispensaries, understanding the different embodiments and routes of administration, knowing how to avoid undesirable psychotropic effects, and combining this approach with both traditional and alternative medical care. The book details many ways of using this treatment without being cognitively altered. It is meticulously documented, and scientifically grounded to both help physicians with recommendations and treatment planning and in delivering highly relevant and useful treatment choices for patients. Whether you are a patient, practitioner, caregiver or lawmaker, <em>Medical Cannabis: A Guide for Patients, Practitioners, and Caregivers</em> separates myth from reality and proves itself invaluable to your own decision making about this therapeutic approach.</p>

<p>The fourth edition of the essential, accessible source for understanding how drugs work and their effects on body and behavior.</p><br />A bestseller in its three previous editions, <em>Buzzed</em> is now revised and updated with the most recent discoveries about drugs. It includes new information about biological and behavioral changes in addiction, the prescription-drug abuse epidemic, distinctive drug effects on the adolescent brain, and trends from synthetic cannabinoids to e-cigarettes. “Lively, highly informative, unbiased, [and] thorough” (<em>Addiction Research & Theory</em>), this no-nonsense handbook surveys the most used and abused drugs from caffeine to heroin to methamphetamine. In both quick-reference summaries and in-depth analysis, it reports on how these drugs enter the body, how they manipulate the brain, their short-term and long-term effects, the different “highs” they produce, and the circumstances in which they can be deadly. Neither a “just say no” treatise nor a “how-to” manual, <em>Buzzed</em> is based on the conviction that people make better decisions with accurate information in hand.

‘...all I wanted was a good night’s sleep.’<br /><br />Rob’s journey began the day he walked into a medical centre and walked out with a prescription for Ativan, one of the world’s most commonly-prescribed drugs. This potentially highly-addictive benzodiazepine drug would change his life forever. It would lead this ‘accidental addict’ to a 13-year chemical dependency and a life eroded by its soul-sapping effects.<br /><br />This real-life account details the effects the drug had on his daily life, then plunges you into the merciless abyss of detox, tapering withdrawal and borderline madness that followed when Rob finally decided to free himself from the chemical clutches of ‘the Benzo Devil’.<br /><br />However, this book is definitely not a ‘misery memoir’ with only horror and no solutions. Rob’s story and the hard-won wisdom he shares is a light for millions of others accidentally caught up in the grip of benzodiazepine drugs like Ativan, Valium, Klonopin and Xanax. The book also provides a comprehensive plan to follow during your self-detox, tapering withdrawal and the eventual freedom to live a full and happy life.<br /><br />Rob sleeps well these days. His journey into hell and back eventually led to him being drug-free and becoming a highly successful businessman— proof that a great life after addiction can be achieved if you will only take that first step.<br />
