A book review of Cannabis Extracts in Medicine: The Promise of Benefits in Seizure Disorders, Cancer and Other Conditions (Mcfarland Health Topics) will be published in the CHOICE connect June 2016 issue (vol. 5, No 10). CHOICE connect is a publication of the Association of College and Research Libraries. Cannabis Extracts in Medicine is co-authored by Elaine A. Moore, Jeffrey Dach, and Justin Kander. The following is an excerpt of the review:
Policy makers in states considering legalizing marijuana for medical purposes should read this well-researched book for one side in the debate. It describes how the biochemical properties of Cannabis sativa provide therapeutic and medical benefits for epilepsy, cancer, and pain and mentions ongoing research in using the plant for other diseases.… The last chapter gives biographies of notable individuals in the movement to make cannabis extract an accepted medical treatment. Includes an appendix of additional resources and citations to numerous peer review sources.
