There is also a suggestion that extracts of the whole plant alleviate pain and anxiety,” Professor Nutt comments. The Chalke History Festival announces a new name, new look, and tons for history buffs to get their teeth into! It's a plant chemical that has been used by human beings for thousands of years, it's not something new, it's a natural substance. Professor Nutt starts with telling us the history of cannabis use and then its tortured political history, both around the world but especially in the UK.

In this lively, witty, and deeply personal book, Grinspoon takes readers on a fascinating tour of everything you ever wanted to know about the benefits of cannabis—especially what it can do to ameliorate suffering and enhance human potential—while always remaining grounded in the scientific evidence. He is the author of the groundbreaking memoir Free Refills: A Doctor Confronts His Addiction , was the expert witness in the successful citizens’ 2019 lawsuit against the Massachusetts “Vape Ban” and a special consultant on addiction issues to Jagged Little Pill’ ’s pre-Broadway run at the American Repertory Theater. He is quoted frequently in the national media, in such venues as People, the New York Times, New York Magazine, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, the Chicago Tribune, and the Boston Globe. With a wealth of evidence-based information, he provides an honest and authoritative guide to understanding the plant and its uses, making this book essential reading for anyone interested in the most up-to-date and reliable information about cannabis. Designed to eliminate bias and other human-fault-variables, they end up as a gatekeeping tool wielded by powerful pharmaceutical companies looking to protect their own products and profits.And yet none of this would have happened if it wasn't for illegal cocaine being brought internationally. When I was a child, I saw my great uncle, a physician, helping my cousin to clean and prepare his medicine – pot– so he could tolerate his chemotherapy treatments.

In David's first ground-breaking book on the subject, he will cover its impact of all areas of the body and the brain and its effective use for treatment of illness from chronic pain, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and PTSD, to anxiety and depression. Thank goodness we have an eminent scientist such as Nutt arguing the case for a more mature, pragmatic and compassionate approach to our society's use of cannabis.
