"Educational and Provocative. . . . Extremely Timely. A compendium of clinical studies conducted by GW Pharmaceuticals using their cannabis-based medical extracts (CBME). Dr. Russo's introduction reviews the potential therapeutic benefits of cannabis for a variety of maladies. This chapter will be particularly interesting to readers wishing to understand the possible reasons for the differences between herbal cannabis and pharmaceutically prepared delta-9-THC. It also presents the fascinating history of the development of CBME."
