This comprehensive sourcebook combines evidence-based insights from more than 1,000 studies from cannabinoid and consciousness research to present a convincing case for the powerful healing effects of medical marijuana on over 100 chronic symptoms and diseases. Written by a former paramedic with a PhD in alternative healthcare, this in-depth reference shows that the subtle shifts in awareness commonly observed in cannabis-using patients vastly contribute to these compounds' therapeutic potential. The Cannabis Health Index is organized into condition-specific chapters, with eye-catching ratings of cannabis efficacy for each symptom, along with recommendations for use, and sidebars that suggest related mindfulness-based practices that enhance the body's own ability to heal. Organized alphabetically from aging to wound care, with sections on a variety of conditions including infections, cancer, cardiovascular health, eye diseases, inflammatory diseases, neurological diseases, and much more, the Index reveals that the huge body of scientific studies focused on cannabis is a tremendously under-utilized repository of knowledge. In synthesizing the findings of these studies, Blesching brings clarity to the process of making informed decisions about cannabis as a valid treatment. Informative, user-friendly, and practical, The Cannabis Health Index presents striking evidence that cannabis is remarkable safe and effective when used within the proper therapeutic window, especially compared with the risks of managing chronic symptoms with pharmaceuticals.

Cannabis affects the body and mind. Cannabinoids (natural compounds produced by the human body, cannabis, and various spice plants) aid in reducing the pain and suffering associated with more than 100 stubborn diseases and symptoms. This book builds upon the premise that subtle shifts in awareness (commonly observed in cannabis-using patients) vastly contribute to these compounds therapeutic potential. By bringing mindfulness-based therapy programs into the healing process, these shifts can be enhanced and amplified, and thus support and deepen the body's own capacity for self-healing. The Cannabis Health Index (CHI) is an in-depth reference that combines insights from 1,000+ annotated studies from the fields of cannabinoid and consciousness research. CHI presents combined practical insights relevant to most major chronic illnesses.
