The first authoritative and comprehensive guide for treating chronic pain with medical marijuana from a holistic family physician who has treated more than six thousand chronic pain patients with cannabis.

While the number of patients using medical marijuana increases every year, misconceptions about cannabis and whether it's harmful or dangerous still exist. In Cannabis for Chronic Pain , Dr. Rav explains the potential of marijuana's capacity for healing anyone afflicted with chronic pain. Medical marijuana is a safe, non-addictive alternative to dangerous opiate pain pills. "Without a doubt, there is a great need for a reliable source on information regarding the safe and effective use of cannabis. Well, here it is. I can think of no other person who embodies such authority than Dr. Ivker," (Michael Finkelstein, MD, FACP, ABIHM, author of Slow Medicine).

Along with sharing his own story of using medical marijuana to heal from a severe case of shingles, Dr. Rav guides you through the cannabis and holistic treatment for your specific chronic pain condition. If you are suffering from arthritis, back pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, menstrual cramps, IBS, Crohn's Disease, anxiety, depression, or pain from cancer or its treatment, this may be the book for you.

"An excellent source of objective information about medical marijuana," ( Library Journal ), Cannabis for Chronic Pain is the new, definitive guide for anyone who suffers from chronic pain.

Very helpful book. I was not looking for naturopath recommendations. Everything else was written clearly and easy to follow.
As well as reading about Cannabis I particularly appreciated the chapters on Inflammation which leads directly into the chapter on Arthritis. It's becoming better known the significance that food plays in managing Arthritis pain. The 4 pages on food choice were a wonder of clarity, better than I've ever seen. I copied those 4 pages to use as easy reference in making better food choices. Most of my favourite foods are on the no no list, all acidic which initiate the flairs of Arthritis. Oh well.
The chapter on Low Back Pain was excellent, each yoga pose written in detail so I wrote those as well. I'm confident that I won't need to use any Rx for low back pain. It's a 20 minute relaxing work-out that strengthens the lower back.
