Not really sure what medical cannabis actually is? Confused by the difference between THC and CBD? Then this book is for you. With the lack of medical jargon it gives the reader a good understanding of what medical cannabis is, an overview of its history, and importantly, a summary of what the latest research shows about the use of cannabis as a medicine, and its potential benefits and risks. 

This book does not take a position on this issue but allows the reader to make their own informed decision. The book provides valuable scientific information on the safety of cannabis that will also be useful for voters in the upcoming referendum at the next general election.
