The Cannabis Health Index is an incredible resource for patients looking to find validated research around cannabis' effect on certain health conditions.

The Potlander's book review states: 

The Cannabis Health Index makes no assumptions about its audience, opening with a beginner's guide of sorts: overviewing the mammalian endocannabinoid system, discussing cannabis safety and side effects, defusing misnomers like the "gateway" argument and ingestion methods. Following this primer, Blesching expands on his mind-body healing emphasis, asking readers to "consider the possibility that by generating specific emotional content you are also changing the very chemistry of your body, either fully or partly modulated via the endocannabinoid system."

We'd love to remind patients that there is a continuously updated digital version of the Cannabis Health Index hosted on CannabisReports.com. Right now there are 845 studies for 169 conditions indexed for cannabis, with studies cited from 1971 to the present. We think this is a valuable resource for anyone interested in learning more about where the research stands on particular health issues impacting themselves or their loved ones. Education is truly the key to unlocking the full potential of this plant.
