In the world of medicine, experts are constantly looking for the right method to cure illnesses and diseases; they are willing to spend thousands and millions of dollars when it comes to research. Despite the state-of-the-art technologies that are created to come up with the most effective means to cure diseases or illnesses, scientists and experts still have not met the requirements to provide treatments that are affordable and have only a few side effects. For instance, people who are suffering from late-stage cancer may not get the real treatment they need. Costly treatments like chemotherapy may just help them relieve the symptoms and prevent the cancer cells from spreading, but will it take away the cancer? Sadly, no; the patient still continues to struggle and will not acquire the recovery that he or she deserves. On the other hand, there´s one alternative treatment that is deemed promising and a breakthrough when it comes to curing various diseases and illnesses, and it is no other than cannabis, or marijuana, a popular plant that is always associated with dangerous drugs and prohibited by the government in most parts of the world. Many textbooks, magazines, journals, and documentaries have been made about marijuana, and sadly not all of them are in favor of cannabis. This may be due to the stigma that has been attached to marijuana for several decades already. It can be associated with the extensive use of marijuana that can cause a feeling of being high, just as other illegal drugs do. This became more apparent in 1971, when President Nixon declared a war against drugs, and this included marijuana. Marijuana was used by our ancient ancestors in many corners of the world. There is evidence that shows that cannabis was indeed part of their daily activity, as several remnants of cannabis were found in ancient sites and mummies. ungekürzt. Language: English.

I have been obsessed with hydroponic cannabis plants since I first came across them seven years ago. I immediately knew this is the king of all cannabis by far. Since then I have tried and tested various ways to grow them. Not each try ended in success, but when I did succeed, I realized how easy it is to grow them if only one knows the tricks and tips. Here in this book I share my proven methods for you to try. Hydroponics is the term which means ´´water working´´. The practice of growing marijuana with hydroponics is just like the growing of plants in highly oxygenated water or in nutrient enriched liquid. There are many types of hydroponic approaches that are suitable for indoor growing of marijuana. Hydroponics has the ability to grow crops much higher than the traditional yields, particularly in those areas where the soil cannot support crops. The growth rate of marijuana becomes double when the hydroponics method is used. The plants will grow much healthier and faster in the hydroponic system as compared to the traditional soil-based method. This book comprises the detailed explanation of the steps, tools, and setups required for growing hydroponic cannabis. The book is divided into seven sections; each section contains detailed information about the hydroponics process. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Randal Schaffer.

The Opium Habit and Alcoholism:A Treatise on the Habits of Opium and Its Compounds, Alcohol, Chloral-Hydrate, Chloroform, Bromide Potassium, And Cannabis Indica, Including Their Therapeutical Indications, With Suggestions for Treating Various Painful Com Fred Heman Hubbard
This innovative monograph introduces a measurement-based framework for effective treatment of patients with mood disorders, personality disorders, and schizophrenia. Rooted firmly in principles of pharmacotherapy and clinical psychometrics, the books signature diagram balances rating scale results and patient self-reported progress along three angles: therapeutic effects, adverse effects, and quality of life. The authors choices of measures are brief, valid, widely used, and easy for clinicians to administer and patients to understand. But rather than being a mechanistic or an impersonal formula, this system is shown as a science-based means of fostering constructive collaboration between patient and therapist, leading to greater patient well-being. Included in the coverage: · Negative mental health: the ordinary symptom-orientated mental disorders. · The basic diagram of personality dimensions. · Self-reported symptom scales within the basic diagram. · Clinician-administered symptom scales within the basic diagram. · The pharmacopsychometric triangle in measurement-based care. · Diagnostic rating scales. · A practical outcome evaluation plan. Offering a medical level of precision to mental health, Measurement-Based Care in Mental Disorders should interest health care providers at all levels, particularly physicians and staff in primary care settings, and in psychiatric in- and outpatient clinics, including psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and social workers. Per Bech received a medical degree from Copenhagen University in 1969. In 1972 he received a gold medal award from Århus University for his thesis on the dose-response relationship between cannabis (tetrahydrocannabinol) and various psychological measurements, including time experience and reaction time in simulated car driving. He completed a doctorate thesis (Dr.Med.Sci) at Copenhagen University on the clinical and psychometric validity of rating scales in depression and mania in 1981. He was appointed Professor of Psychiatry at Odense University in 1992 and in 2008 he was appointed Professor of Applied or Clinical Psychometrics at Copenhagen University. Since 1981 he has headed the Psychiatric Research Unit at The Mental Health Centre North Zealand in Hillerød (Capital Region of Denmark). He is an honorary member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and of the European Psychiatric Association (EPA).
´´Morphine,´´ writes Richard J. Miller, ´´is the most significant chemical substance mankind has ever encountered.´´ So ancient that remains of poppies have been found in Neolithic tombs, it is the most effective drug ever discovered for treating pain. ´´Whatever advances are made in medicine,´´ Miller adds, ´´nothing could really be more important than that.´´ And yet, when it comes to mind-altering substances, morphine is only a cc or two in a vast river that flows through human civilization, ranging from LSD to a morning cup of tea. In Drugged, Miller takes listeners on an eye-opening tour of psychotropic drugs, describing the various kinds, how they were discovered and developed, and how they have played multiple roles in virtually every culture. The vast scope of chemicals that cross the blood-brain barrier boggle the very brain they reach: cannabis and cocaine, antipsychotics and antidepressants, alcohol, amphetamines, and Ecstasy - and much more. Literate and wide-ranging, Miller weaves together science and history, telling the story of the undercover theft of 20,000 tea plants from China by a British spy, for example; the European discovery of coffee and chocolate; and how James Wolfgang von Goethe, the famous man of letters, first isolated the alkaloid we now know as caffeine. Miller explains what scientists know - and don´t - about the impact of each drug on the brain, down to the details of neurotransmitters and their receptors. He clarifies the differences between morphine and heroin, mescaline and LSD, and other similar substances. Drugged brims with surprises, revealing the fact that antidepressant drugs evolved from the rocket fuel that shot V2 rockets into London during World War II, highlighting the role of hallucinogens in the history of religion, and asking whether Prozac can help depressed cats. Entertaining and authoritative, Drugged is a truly fascinating book. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Roger Clark.

Addictive Substances and Neurological Disease: Alcohol, Tobacco, Caffeine, and Drugs of Abuse in Everyday Lifestyles is a complete guide to the manifold effects of addictive substances on the brain, providing readers with the latest developing research on how these substances are implicated in neurological development and dysfunction. Cannabis, cocaine, and other illicit drugs can have substantial negative effects on the structure and functioning of the brain. However, other common habituating and addictive substances often used as part of an individuals lifestyle, i.e., alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, painkillers can also compromise brain health and effect or accentuate neurological disease. This book provides broad coverage of the effects of addictive substances on the brain, beginning with an overview of how the substances lead to dysfunction before examining each substance in depth. It discusses the pathology of addiction, the structural damage resulting from abuse of various substances, and covers the neurobiological, neurodegenerative, behavioral, and cognitive implications of use across the lifespan, from prenatal exposure, to adolescence and old age. This book aids researchers seeking an understanding of the neurological changes that these substances induce, and is also extremely useful for those seeking potential treatments and therapies for individuals suffering from chronic abuse of these substances. Integrates current research on the actions of addictive substances in neurological disease Includes functional foods, such as caffeine beverages, that have habituating effects on the brain Provides a synopsis of key ideas associated with the consequences of addictive and habituating lifestyle substances
