Introduction to Medicinal Cannabis | 2nd Edition


This book is designed to be a comprehensive introduction to medicinal cannabis for health professionals as well as patients wanting to discover the therapeutical benefits of the cannabis plant.

I remember my frustration, trying to find a simple guide that could explain step by step the intricate properties of cannabis in an easy to follow and understandable manner. I was reading one article after the other and it wasn’t easy.

In this book, I am hoping to achieve that, an easy step by step guide. I hope that patients as well as doctors find it useful and find the inspiration to further studies.
