    This excellent  publication from Bedrocan International discusses the therapeutic use of cannabis – not pot, marijuana, grass, or dope for recreational use to get ‘high’. It focuses strictly on medicinal cannabis and aims to give health care professionals, regulators and patients insights into the medical and scientific aspects of Cannabis sativa L. and how this plant fits in the chain of therapeutic options.

    This is an excellent guide to the rational use of cannabis-based medicines from Bedrocan International.
    Cannabis-based medicines are increasingly being made available on a global level. It is important that prescribers, pharmacists and nurses are equipped with practical, evidence-based guidance to support decision-making, and to improve communication of the benefits and risks of these medicines with their patients. This clinical primer draws on clinical research, clinical observations, and professional experiences to provide useful, real-world insights to the rational use of cannabis-based medicines.
