Drawing from her knowledge in the field of cytology, Hiegel presents a compendium of medical protocols to help doctors, dispensaries and patients determine which cannabis chemovar works best on a particular disease.

With each case, Hiegel presents clinically relevant cannabis protocols, providing a tailored treatment plan to effectively manage conditions and symptoms. Additionally, each protocol sheet lists the pros and cons of using cannabis in conjunction with other medications and treatments. Advancing the conversation on the role cannabis will play in future healthcare treatment practices, this groundbreaking and informative book is an invaluable resource for medical professionals, pharmacists, caregivers, cannabis dispensary agents, and patients.
