Product Details


“Blesching makes a convincing evidentiary case for the use of cannabis to sometimes replace and frequently supplement the use of opioids in the treatment of a variety of pain syndromes. Along the way, one learns a remarkable amount about history, opioid addiction, medicinal cannabis, and mind-body integrative medicine. It is a much-needed contribution in this time of grave concern regarding the epidemic of abuse, addiction, and death related to opioids. Read it and apply its lessons, if you wish to contribute to healing our society.”
—David E. Presti; University of California, Berkeley, author of Foundational Concepts in Neuroscience: A Brain-Mind Odyssey

“Bringing keen insights into cannabinoid integrative health, Uwe Blesching turns attention to opioid substitution and pain management, introduces a very helpful three-pronged scheme to divide up cannabis by chemotypes, and helps the reader to sort out why to opt for one cannabis chemotype over another. This is a helpful guide for patients and their advocates as well as clinicians.”
—Sunil Kumar Aggarwal, MD, PhD

Breaking the Cycle of Opioid Addiction is a timely book in light of the opioid crisis Americans face today. It offers real clinical evidence to support cannabinoids as a safe and effective alternative to pain management. Those looking to replace their opioids can find an easy approach to incorporating cannabis into their pain management treatment plan in this well-researched and comprehensive book.”
—Eloise Theisen, adult geriatric nurse practitioner and founder of Green Health Consultants and Radical Health
