In recent years, the popularity of CBD products has exploded - with 'wonder drug' claims being made for nearly every ailment ranging from cancer to anxiety. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant and is a 21st century marketing sensation. With a myriad of products to choose from including pills, chewing gum, lotions, potions, capsules, massage oils, pastes and vapes, the revenue potential for CBD products is huge. But what do we actually know about this panacea? There is more often than not a cloud of confusion which surrounds CBD in its many forms. What does it actually do? What's the best way to use it? What's the difference between the vast array of products? Are there herb-drug interactions? Complementary practitioners are not trained in the benefits or contraindications of cannabis when used medically. A quick search on the internet often produces more confusion, with a plethora internet help forums springing up and manufacturers trying to jump onto the bandwagon - often creating products of dubious quality made from vague ingredients. Karin Mallion's new book aims to fill the gaps in our understanding of CBD. The CBD Handbook is an accessible guide, written for patients and practitioners alike, which provides readers with a history and overview of CBD and cannabis. It lists in detail which conditions and ailments CBD can help with and provides a detailed look at cannabinoids, THC, endocannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system. It also explores the different types of cannabis, the phytochemistry of cannabis, appropriate herbal medicine to use alongside CBD and cannabis, legal issues, case histories and issues around clinical use.
