Cannabis against cancer
Scientific studies have shown that the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa L.) and many cannabis ingredients have cancer-inhibiting properties, including THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), but also some other lesser-known cannabinoids and terpenes. Many cancer patients are looking for alternatives and complementary natural treatment methods to standard medical procedures in cancer therapy and place their hopes on treatment with cannabis products. However, the information on the topic in the media is often contradicting and misleading.
This book offers a factual and well-founded overview of the current state of science on the therapeutic potential of cannabis ingredients in various cancers and their practical medical application. It provides answers to the questions of which cannabinoids can be used, which doses should be used, which preparations make sense, which combinations with standard therapies are promising and why different types of cancer require different approaches. The author Dr. Franjo Grotenhermen is a doctor and expert in cannabis and cannabinoid medicine. Year of publication: 2017 ISBN: 978-3-03788-516-1 160 pages, format 14.8 x 21 cm
