About the book:

Forget everything you think you know about cannabis—and embrace an all-natural therapy for treating both immediate and long-term conditions. This is the science-backed, doctor-approved guide to cannabis for adults who are serious about improving their health.

The medical benefits of cannabis have never been clearer. But the explosion of the cannabis marketplace has left behind the people who can benefit most: adults looking for trustworthy care. Now, from Dr. Benjamin Caplan, the authoritative face of cannabis medicine, comes The Doctor-Approved Cannabis Handbook, the ultimate resource for navigating cannabis treatments.

Even with an abundance of patients eager for guidance, there is scarce access to reliable cannabis-focused medical care and information. Doctors typically offer little help, despite the wide range of benefits cannabis products can provide—particularly to older patients and those with chronic illnesses. As cannabis often has a ripple effect, addressing multiple issues simultaneously, it can be life-changing for anyone who suffers from multi-system health concerns, enhancing or even replacing many of their current medications.

Dr. Caplan is a licensed, board-certified Family Physician who has overseen care of over 250,000 patients with guided cannabis care. In this new book, he explains clearly how cannabis works, which products are best for specific illnesses, typical dosages to use, and more—all in an easy-to-understand format to make the process as straightforward and accessible as possible.

The Doctor-Approved Cannabis Handbook covers how safe cannabis use can help individuals manage the symptoms of a variety of common conditions, such as:

  • Cognitive decline
  • Cancer
  • Chronic Pain
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches

The Doctor-Approved Cannabis Handbook lets readers address their ailments with customized cannabis treatment recommendations. With increasingly safe and legal access to medical marijuana products, there has never been a better time to take advantage of legitimate and effective cannabis medicine—and take control of your health in the process.
