The Cannabis Prescription: How to Use Medical Marijuana to Reduce or Replace Pharmaceutical Medications

by Colleen Higgins, R.Ph., CDE, MTM, PMSP

In The Cannabis Pharmacy: How to Use Medical Marijuana to Reduce or Replace Pharmaceutical Medications, pharmacist Colleen Higgins, R.Ph. uses her experience working in a cannabis dispensary to instruct readers as to the most comfortable and effective way to begin using medical cannabis therapy, either when inhaled, used sublingually or when taken as an edible. 

Specific dosages of CBD, THC, and CBN are provided in order to help patents avoid over consumption while still achieving effective symptom management.

A full array of cannabis products typically found in a cannabis dispensary are discussed such as topical products, vaporizers (flower and oil), concentrates, tinctures, cannabis oils, RSO, micro-emulsions, and edibles.

Currently available pharmaceutical medications for conditions such as muscle pain, nerve pain, side effects from chemotherapy, fibromyalgia, sleep, migraines, gastrointestinal disease, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, anxiety, depression, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease are compared and contrasted with the evidence-based benefits offered by cannabis while taking into consideration drug interactions, side effects, safety, and costs. 

If you’re sitting in front of a pile of pills feeling overwhelmed and dissatisfied, this comprehensive book will teach you about the science and healing powers of one of the oldest and safest natural medicines in the world.
