There never has been a plant as important to mankind, yet so misunderstood as marijuana. For at least 10,000 years it has been tied to human civilization. It was important as a source of fiber, as an herbal medicine, and yes, as a psychoactive substance.

Marijuana: The World's Most Misunderstood Plant explains why the plant affects us, its history, breeding, growing, and processing. The book describes how the plant is used today, from smoking to dabbing, from vaping to eating edibles.

The book focuses on the huge potential for marijuana-based medicine and why it works to suppress pain, as an anti-inflammatory,
and for numerous diseases and conditions.
For patients it provides a starting point in understanding why marijuana-based medicine may be beneficial as a treatment option.
