In fact from 1995 to 2019, people between the ages of 16 and 59 have gone from 23% of the population to just under 32% of the population who have tried it. We are also very excited by the growing use of medical cannabis for Tourette’s and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

Cannabidiol-based medicines are often effective in rare and treatment-resistant epilepsies, including Dravet and Lennox-Gastaut syndromes 1, but whole plant extracts may be even more effective than pure cannabidiol. previously he has been President of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP), the British Neuroscience Association (BNA) and the British Association of Psychopharmacology (BAP).Much needed mythbusting regarding the schizophrenia link (old and misleading study, large increase in use not followed by population wide increase in schizophrenia). However, most enlightening for me was the historic account of the chequered history of cannabis prohibition here in the UK, driven by political pandering rather than social and health concerns. I’m sure if people want more detailed assessments they can find these online / in other texts and build on what this book already starts. A powerfully-argued and persuasive, science-based argument in favour of legalisation and state regulation of cannabis. When I was a child, I saw my great uncle, a physician, helping my cousin to clean and prepare his medicine – pot– so he could tolerate his chemotherapy treatments.

The benefits have not, however, been as well detailed, so Professor Nutt and colleagues have established Project Twenty21, which is gathering data about the efficacy of cannabis-based medicines for numerous conditions. Nevertheless, legal cannabidiol-containing oils, food and drinks are increasingly common on pharmacy and retail shelves ( see the approved list). Seeing through the Smoke is packed with accessible, engaging, and useful information delivered with the heart of a humanitarian and the commonsense of a sensible scientist. It's amazing and yet the USA has been trying to burn coca leaves for 50 years when it's part of some countries in South America's livelihoods - not to make cocaine (that's the USA) but to live on and grow as we might coffee beans or wheat.Read about how we’ll protect and use your data in our Privacy Notice.

The figures are too small and fairly difficult to read, but overall this is clear, well argued and easy to read. In David's first ground-breaking book on the subject, he will cover its impact of all areas of the body and the brain and its effective use for treatment of illness from chronic pain, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and PTSD, to anxiety and depression. Seeing through the Smoke clearly lays out the case for cannabis as a medicine while thoughtfully and calmly outlining its risks.

At the high doses used for epilepsy, cannabidiol can block some CYP450 enzymes,” Professor Nutt says. We are currently in a war on drugs, and this has only resulted with more people taking cannabis, a black market, and stronger cannabis, as well as criminalising and blotting people's lives with a criminal record.

Cannabidiol accounts for up to 40 per cent of the plant extract and does not cause the euphoria induced by THC. The use of subtitles is good signposting for the reader and is part of the reasons it’s such a useful resource for a variety of people from medical students to medical cannabis patients. Professor David Nutt, a scientist who looks at the evidence-based practice rather than some emotional story (and who was famously sacked by the Labour Government for speaking truth as the evidence shows on drugs) gives the facts about cannabis. His writing has been published in The Nation, the Los Angeles Times and Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics. Nutt obviously has skin in the game in terms of criticising the records of the Blair and Brown governments.
