Publisher's Summary

The Science of Marijuana, Third Edition is directed at a public interested in knowing more about cannabis, how it works, and what the hazards associated with its use may be. 

In terms of cannabis as a medicine, it is now sanctioned by a majority of US states, with approved medical indications that often go beyond what is really known scientifically about the effectiveness of cannabis treatment. Some countries and US states have approved full legalization of cannabis for adults; the regulations needed to control such legal use are still being worked out. The pros and cons of cannabis legalization are reviewed.

There have been big changes in the public perception of cannabis and increased support for legalization. The book comes at a timely moment in this debate.

Very balanced

content was excellent to learn the facts about Medicinal Cannabis. The research is moving so quickly that some content is outdated.

Immersive, a powerful introduction to the explanations behind Cannabis

I gave this the best rating I possibly could, due to the density of information in this third edition. I LOVED it. I’ve been attempting career introduction into the cannabis industry, and thus book made me exponentially more informed of the historic and scientific relevance of cannabis & it’s terpenes, flavonoids, cannabinoids, uses, and a variety of other information. I rated the performance as a 4 - though I believe the narrator excellently performed, this book just had too many technical references for me to understand everything through his accent (heavy English, it sounded), in times when he spoke quickly/changed chapters - a few laws mentioned, cannabinoids, and processes I still don’t know what he said. That aside, i loved this book. I did also order the physical copy so that I can reread, as well as go back to understand what I couldnt through narration. 10/10 would recommend this book to anyone and everyone who is interested in getting your feet fully wet in understanding cannabis. Prepare yourself for rabbit-holes of questions that you crave to be answered after this one!

Outdated Information

I consider this book an historical document that is not current to the information available at its time of publication. It is a good reference for the history of cannabis testing, knowledge and anecdotal uses. It only covers a few cannabinoids and never mentions terpenes and the entourage effect with cannabinoids.
This information was known 5 years before this book was published.
