Cannabis and Mental Health:1. Auflage Christopher Neuhaus
Cannabis Use and Mental Health:A Critical Review of Risks and Benefits North Carolina Psychiatric Association
The Cannabis Manifesto is both a call to action and a radical vision of humans´ relationship with this healing but controversial plant. Steve DeAngelo, the founder of Harborside Health Center, the world´s largest medical-cannabis dispensary, presents a compelling case for cannabis as a wellness catalyst that must be legalized. His view that there is no such thing as recreational cannabis use challenges listeners to rethink everything they thought they knew about marijuana. The Cannabis Manifesto answers essential questions about the plant, using extensive research to fuel a thoughtful discussion about cannabis science and law as well as its biological, mental, and spiritual effects on human beings. With a cultural critic´s eye peering through the lens of social justice, DeAngelo explains how cannabis prohibition has warped our most precious institutions - from the family to the workplace to the doctor´s office and the courtroom. In calling for a realistic national policy on a substance that has been used by half of all Americans, this essential primer will forever change the way the world thinks about cannabis, its benefits, and the laws governing its use. 1.

An evidence-based guide to using cannabis to enhance pain relief safely, effectively, and economically while reducing the risks of opioid addiction.Opioid addiction has exploded to epidemic proportions in the US. Drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death. In 2012, 259 million prescriptions were written for opioids - more than enough to give every American adult his or her own bottle of pills. Uwe Blesching, author of The Cannabis Health Index, clearly and thoroughly lays out the overwhelming benefits of using cannabis - not only to reduce the nation’s dependence on opioids - but also to manage the craving and withdrawal symptoms of opioid addiction, and especially to address the pain that leads to drug use and addiction in the first place. Citing statistics showing that states allowing legal access to cannabis have seen a 25 percent drop in opioid-related deaths, Blesching explains how precision applications of cannabis can alleviate the mental and emotional aspects of pain by modulating numerous neurotransmitters and their emotional counterparts. He presents a convincing case for the powerful benefits of cannabis in reducing the risks of addiction and overdose, cutting monetary costs, and restoring a sense of balance and control to those who struggle with pain. 1.

This audiobook teaches you how to cook with three of the greatest superfood discoveries of the 21st century:CannabisHempCannabidiol (CBD)For several years, the government cheated all of us out of enjoying the health benefits of these superfoods.They told us that the cannabis plant is an evil plant that can kill us and damage our brain cells, and that Cannabis was a health risk; 10,000 times more dangerous than cocaine and alcohol.They banned it from our streets and homes, and we were forbidden from planting it in our gardens.Thanks to medical researchers and brave members of the health community, they were able to challenge these fallacies - it turns out Cannabis in itself is not dangerous but the inhalation of smoke can affect the lungs.Eating cannabis, on the other hand, is safe and very beneficial for the human body. The Cannabis plant is filled with dozens of minerals, vitamins, terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids and proteins, antioxidants, and fatty acids, all of which are helpful for nourishing the body and for:Boosting immune system functionPrevention and treatment of cancerPrevention of inflammationImprovement of bone healthWeight management and appetite controlTreatment of insomniaBoosting mental performance and mood managementSkin health managementHealth benefits of the Cannabis plant are too numerous to mention here but you’ll find out a lot more as you go through the sections.It was also discovered that not all strains of the Cannabis plants can make you high as they don’t all have high concentrations of the psychoactive compound, THC, which is responsible for giving the highs. Hemp, CBD, and Cannabis are three of the most important derivatives of the Cannabis plant and the beautiful thing is that you can incorporate these into your cooking in order to enjoy all o 1.

An eye-opening report from an award-winning author and former New York Times reporter reveals the link between teenage marijuana use and mental illness, and a hidden epidemic of violence caused by the drug - facts the media has ignored as the US rushes to legalize cannabis.Recreational marijuana is now legal in nine states. Almost all Americans believe the drug should be legal for medical use. Advocates argue cannabis can help everyone from veterans to cancer sufferers. But legalization has been built on myths - that marijuana arrests fill prisons; that most doctors want to use cannabis as medicine; that it can somehow stem the opiate epidemic; that it is not just harmless but beneficial for mental health. In this meticulously reported audiobook, Alex Berenson, a former New York Times reporter, explodes those myths:Almost no one is in prison for marijuana;A tiny fraction of doctors write most authorizations for medical marijuana, mostly for people who have already used;Marijuana use is linked to opiate and cocaine use. Since 2008, the US and Canada have seen soaring marijuana use and an opiate epidemic. Britain has falling marijuana use and no epidemic;Most of all, THC - the chemical in marijuana responsible for the drug’s high - can cause psychotic episodes. After decades of studies, scientists no longer seriously debate if marijuana causes psychosis.Psychosis brings violence, and cannabis-linked violence is spreading. In the four states that first legalized, murders have risen 25 percent since legalization, even more than the recent national increase. In Uruguay, which allowed retail sales in July 2017, murders have soared this year.Berenson’s reporting ranges from the London institute that is home to the scientists who helped prove the cannabis-psychosis link to the Colorado prison where a man now serves a 30-year sentence after eating a THC-laced candy bar and killing h 1.
