Overview

Marijuana Gateway to Health: How Cannabis Protects Us from Cancer and Alzheimer's Disease buries reefer madness myths with an easy-to-understand explanation of how marijuana helps to improve health. In the last ten years, scientific discoveries have revealed that our bodies produce chemicals similar to those found in marijuana and that these endocannabinoids work to prevent illnesses ranging from cancer to Alzheimer's disease to diabetes. When we use marijuana, we are ingesting compounds--plant cannabinoids--that supplement the protective activities of our bodies' cannabinoids. The compounds THC and CBD, found only in the cannabis plant, have remarkable anti-tumor and neuroprotective activities that actually improve our health.
Marijuana Gateway to Health presents well-documented, peer-reviewed studies from around the world that indicate that using marijuana is health-positive behavior and suggests that a lack of natural cannabinoids might be the cause of numerous illnesses ranging from migraines to diabetes.
The book also includes a fascinating narrative history of the politics and science of the medical marijuana movement.
This may be the first book that encourages more people to start using cannabis in order to improve their health and lower the health-care costs to the nation. Find out what the government doesn't want you to know about marijuana, read this book.

Editorial Reviews

Andrew Weil
"This book should be required reading for all medical professionals, elected officials, and everyone interested in health and wellness."
David Dunn
There aren't many books I'd get up at 3:00 AM in the morning to write a review about. I've read my copy cover to cover twice, with delight! I'd be reading it the third time this weekend if I hadn't loaned it to a friend to help her understand how to regain her health. Mr. Werner's book is amazing. From cover to cover it is filled with desperately needed information concerning the healing power of cannabis. It offers incredible insight into the history of healing of one of nature's most magnifice

The public desperately needs to be educated regarding the appropriate use and benefits as well as possible dangers of marijuana. The author of this fabulous book, Clint Werner, has elevated our awareness and insight by wonderfully explaining the health benefits and occasional risks of Marijuana. Clint Werner brings this message with evidence based explanations that are easy to read and understand. A high school superintendent friend of mine read this book and recommended copies be available to a

Clint Werner gives a full account of the history and potential of this once and future sacred plant. So much good stuff in here: start with a thorough footnoted review of the science, so far, on the medical benefits for specific illnesses. Pretty great, more to come.
Werner does a full review of the history of the sacred uses of marijuana, and goes on to tell the story, in detail, of how the science became perverted through political pressure.
The book's arguments and data are devastatin
Marsha Rosenbaum
I learned more from this book than from anything I've read in the last ten years.
