Dr. Kogan's Evidence-Based Guide to the Health Benefits of Cannabis and CBD

While marijuana has been used as medicine for millennia, it has long been illegal in the United States. As more and more states legalize marijuana for medical use, healthcare providers and consumers are exploring marijuana as a safe and effective treatment for chronic pain, chemo side effects, sleep and mood disorders, MS, and Parkinson's disease, among others. Still, there is lot of disinformation about marijuana. While doctors have limited knowledge on best practices for marijuana use, your friendly neighborhood budtender lacks medical training. Thankfully, Mikhail "Misha" Kogan, M.D., a renowned expert on medical marijuana, is here to help. In MEDICAL MARIJUANA: Dr. Kogan's Evidence-Based Guide to the Health Benefits of Cannabis and CBD, Dr. Kogan, along with medical sociologist Dr. Joan Liebmann-Smith, demystifies marijuana and other forms of cannabis, equipping readers with the needed tools to take charge of their health.
