This book highlights current Cannabis research: its botany, authentication, biotechnology, in vitro propagation, chemistry, cannabinoids biosynthesis, metabolomics, genomics, biomass production, quality control, and pharmacology. Cannabis sativa L. (Family: Cannabaceae) is one of the oldest sources of fiber, food and medicine. This plant has been of interest to researchers, general public and media not only due to its medicinal properties but also the controversy surrounding its illicit use. Cannabis has a long history of medicinal use in the Middle East and Asia, being first introduced as a medicine in Western Europe in the early 19 th century. Due to its numerous natural constituents, Cannabis is considered a chemically complex species. It contains a unique class of terpeno-phenolic compounds (cannabinoids or phytocannabinoids), which have been extensively studied since the discovery of the chemical structure of tetrah ydrocannabinol (? 9 -THC), commonly known as THC, the main constituent responsible for the plants psychoactive effects. An additionally important cannabinoid of current interest is Cannabidiol (CBD). There has been a significant interest in CBD and CBD oil (extract of CBD rich Cannabis) over the last few years because of its reported activity as an antiepileptic agent, particularly its potential use in the treatment of intractable epilepsy in children.

Marijuana - clinically known as cannabis, is a medicine prepared from the blossoming plant of cannabis sativa, which consists of five leaves. It has been known as an unlawful and prohibited drug for an extensive period of time. The very fact that medical doctors cannot recommend it openly is on account of the fact that the drug has a pick-me-up effect, in addition to causing an intense falsehood in an individual´s perceptions of realism. It also produces a gloomy effect on the human body. But above all, since marijuana brings about a feeling of joy and ecstasy, hence persons of all age groups (especially the teenagers) pursue it readily. Regardless of its drawbacks, immeasurable exploration is providing evidence that the drug´s reimbursements are so many that they can overshadow its horrific effects. The cooperative usage of medical marijuana, by and large assists patients with unremitting disorders and ailments. Medical marijuana has much to bargain, once further research establishes its maximum benefits. Who knows, it might prove to be the marvel drug that the humankind has been awaiting! Marijuana has its benefits as well as disadvantages because it is obtained from a plant cultivated and created by Mother Nature. If used imprecisely, it can be disastrous to the human body, mind, and one´s capabilities of perception. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Trevor Clinger.

Discover the truth behind Medical Cannabis! Medical Cannabis is one of the hottest topics right now, in addition to being one of the most controversial. With the long, sordid history that this plant possesses, that should come as no surprise. While the recent trend of legalization in states like Washington and Colorado has muddled the argument, medical cannabis is still a reality in 23 States along with Washington DC. How did it get that way? Is it just a loophole to smoke recreational cannabis? Is there real science behind it? These are valid concerns that many have. The answers to these, however, aren't always clear. To remedy that, this book will cover every aspect of cannabis that is vital to the ongoing conversation. For the vast majority of people, medical cannabis is still a mysterious topic. No matter how many people they might have met that have used cannabis in the past, the actual uses might be beyond their comprehension. Many people claim that it is a miracle cure for everything from cancer to ADD/ADHD, while some say that it is nothing but the harmful, life-destroying drug that it has always been legally designated. This is the center of the argument discussed here. Which side is right? Are they both being entirely honest? The time has come to butt out the propaganda from both parties and get down to what should matter most to the public: the cold hard facts.
The world we live in today is far different than it was 100 years ago. In fact, it is vastly different from the world of even 10 years ago. The advances in the medical science field deserve the most praise. These advances have improved and enhanced treatment methods for the diseases and ailments that are ever more present in society. Out of these advances, cannabis oil has been one of the most effective and widely adopted medical treatment methods of the last century. Cannabis oil, also referred to as hemp oil, is greatly different from marijuana that individuals use to get ´´high´´ and even different from medical marijuana administered by medical professionals. The main component, the active ingredient in cannabis oil, is a cannabinoid by the name of Cannabidiol (CBD). The absorption of CBD by the body does not result in any psychoactive effects, such as a feeling of being ´´high´´ or ´´stoned.´´ Rather, their effects on the body can be described as calming and soothing, both on a physical level which an individual can recognize as well as on a level beneath the skin. The active ingredient in Marijuana that is used for recreational or medicinal purposes, on the other hand, is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the cannabinoid that induces the feeling of being ´´high´´ that is most often associated with all forms of cannabis. The reported benefits of cannabis oil vary greatly and span medical conditions such as cancer, epilepsy, insomnia, and high blood pressure. Cannabis oil has been touted by some as a ´´miracle treatment´´ for many conditions that simply did not have an effective treatment with minimal side effects available to consumers.
