Product Details


“Medical cannabis is revolutionizing the practice of medicine in America. On the forefront of that revolution is CBD: A Patient’s Guide to Medicinal Cannabis, a must-read for health care practitioners and patients alike.”
—Joel Samuels, MD

“In my practice of pain medicine, I have witnessed the positive impact that cannabis can have on chronic pain. It is increasingly evident that it provides a safer alternative to opioids. The breadth and scope of this book is impressive. The historical perspective is most interesting and the technical information deeply informative.” 
—Robert Hines, MD, Diplomate, American Board of Pain Medicine; Diplomate, American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology; co-founder, Bay Area Pain Medical Associates
CBD: A Patient’s Guide to Medicinal Cannabis is the most comprehensive publication
on the science and therapeutic use of cannabinoids yet produced. It extensively covers the science of cannabinoid chemistry and the endocannabinoid system, and is supported by more than four hundred peer-reviewed research articles. I recommend it for any provider actively prescribing medicinal cannabis formulas.”
—Jeffry L. Anderson, MD

“A magnificent approach to the use of medical cannabis in both humans and pets, not only for caregivers, patients, and their families, but also for skeptical physicians. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in discovering the real power of this millennial medicinal plant.”
—Dr. Gisela Kuester, neurologist and epileptologist, clinical research director at Daya Foundation, Chile
“A clearly written and informative book on a complicated subject. Medical marijuana is not a panacea, and is not a substitute for the extraordinary skills of modern scientific medicine, but as this fine book shows, cannabis in its many forms is now an important part of the Western medical tradition.”
—Dale Pendell, author of Pharmako/Poeia: Plant Powers, Poisons, and Herbcraft
CBD: A Patient’s Guide to Medicinal Cannabis is a well-written guidebook to one of the most exciting compounds in cannabis medicine today. This book is comprehensive enough to be a useful reference to the layperson and expert alike, on matters relating to CBD as well as cannabis in general. Excellent job!”
—Owen Shibata, MD
“CBD is a hot topic right now, but there’s a tremendous amount of misinformation about how it works. This book clears up the confusion, and gives you expert guidance that could make a profound difference in your life.”
—Max Simon, founder of Green Flower Media
“I love this book. It is both beautiful and practical, grounded in all the right qualities needed to make working with CBD easy and effective.” 
—Uwe Blesching PhD, author of Cannabis Health Index
“This book will put patients and doctors on common ground when it comes to CBD. After reading it, patients will be ready to have an informed discussion with their doctor about how to use medical cannabis.”
—Scott Giannotti, founder of Cannabis and Hemp Association
“This comprehensive book combines scientific evidence with practical advice for specific health challenges and preventive measures. I highly recommend this guidebook for people who are considering CBD treatments, and for health care practitioners who want to learn more about CBD for their patients.” 
—Sondra Barrett, PhD, author of Secrets of Your Cells: Discovering Your Body’s Inner Intelligence and Ultimate Immunity: Supercharge Your Body’s Natural Healing Powers
“A testament to the source of Leonard Leinow’s passionate stewardship of CBD-rich cannabis products, CBD: A Patient’s Guide to Medicinal Cannabis reveals the scope and profundity of this game-changing component of medical marijuana.” 
—Laurie Vollen, MD, MPH, founder of Naturally Healing MD
“Leonard Leinow’s powerful advocacy for medicinal cannabis places us squarely on the cusp of accessing what is potentially the most incredibly diverse medicine that comes from one plant. We as individuals, families, therapists, doctors, and vets, need the power of informed choice to use this unparalleled plant appropriately—to heal ailments and save lives, to relieve pain and provide dignity in life passing.”
—Kimberly Call, CCHT, CMT, HHC, author of Morning Rituals—How We Awaken and A Beautiful Passing
