I knew that I wanted to try hemp oil. I had heard about the many health benefits of CBD and was hopeful that it might provide some relief for my chronic Fibromyalgia and Arthritis pain. But I couldn't find information on dosage or explanations of the uses of the various forms (drops, capsules, creams, etc.). But thankfully, while reading conflicting reviews of different CBD products on Amazon, I came across this book. Hooray! I immediately downloaded it and was able to read it in a little over an hour.
The book has just enough scientific and medical info to explain how and why CBD works as medicine; this gave me confidence that hemp oil is not just a fad, placebo or snake oil. Much of the research cited is from US government studies as well as universities (and there are plenty of citations and footnotes for those who want to go to the source). The author is clearly very well educated on the subject, and his experience in nursing and drug counseling are a real plus, adding to my confidence.
It's less of a "how-to" and more of a "why not?", if that makes sense. The author was careful not to prescribe; he didn't tell me how much CBD I should take. But he did give examples of the range of dosages used by people and suggests that it's a good idea to go "low and slow"; start at a low dose and increase slowly, preferable under a doctor's supervision. I now feel informed and confident enough to go forward and try this new/ancient medicine!
To the author: Bravo! You have shed light and reason on an important subject and provided a valuable service to a suffering public. You have my gratitude.
(A humble suggestion: you might consider taking the "nursing" reference out of the title. While the book would clearly be useful for those in the nursing profession, it is equally important and accessible to the lay reader, and I fear you might lose many potential readers who assume that it's a book written primarily for nurses. I almost passed it by for that reason; I'm glad I didn't! Also, I hope that you will decide to offer the book in a print version as well; some folks don't have access to e-readers; and some of us just prefer having a hard to copy to underline and highlight and reference repeatedly; it's just easier in "book" form! I would definitely buy a hard copy, if you decide to offer one.) Thank you again for your fine work. Good luck to you!
This was written in 2014, so I'm not sure all of the info is updated as far as drugs & the classes they're in. Other than that, it is very informative.
