ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Truly global in scope and with contributions from leading researchers around the world, The Handbook of Cannabis is the definitive resource on this fascinating drug. Combining scientific perspectives and clinical applications, it covers a vast array of topics, from why over the centuries cannabis has been used as a medicine, through the regulations facing those wishing to self-administer cannabis or provide cannabis-based medicines, to the chemical structure of its many constituents and the rapidly growing group of synthetic cannabinoids that are currently being used for 'legal highs'. With each chapter written by a group of one or more internationally recognised subject experts, it provides academics and researchers with authoritative scientific material on the main pharmacological actions and their effects, as well as their pharmacokinetics, metabolism, and forensic detection. In addition it also examines the complex morphology, cultivation, harvesting, and processing of cannabis and the ways in which the plant's chemical composition can be controlled. As well as offering a raft of scientific information there is extensive coverage of cannabinoid-based medicines. Helping readers to identify and evaluate their benefits, chapters explore pharmacological actions and the effects that seem to underlie approved therapeutic uses, how they are currently used to treat certain disorders, and the ever-growing number of wide-ranging potential clinical applications. There is also coverage of both the legal and illegal sources of cannabis, including 'coffee shops' and 'cannabis dispensaries'. The complex issue of 'recreational cannabis' is also tackled. The sought-after and adverse psychological and non-psychological effects are described and discussions are included on how some adverse effects can be lessened by at least one constituent of cannabis, and that it might be possible to reduce the harm that cannabis does to some by changing current regulatory policies. The Handbook of Cannabis is a one-stop reference; essential reading for all clinicians, pharmacologists, psychologists, and psychiatrists interested in this drug, as well as those working in the field of public health.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Although primarily used today as one of the most prevalent illicit leisure drugs, the use of Cannabis sativa L., commonly referred to as marijuana, for medicinal purposes has been reported for more than 5000 years. Marijuana use has been shown to create numerous health problems, and, consequently, the expanding use beyond medical purposes into recreational use (abuse) resulted in control of the drug through international treaties. Much research has been carried out over the past few decades following the identification of the chemical structure of THC in 1964. The purpose of Marijuana and the Cannabinoids is to present in a single volume the comprehensive knowledge and experience of renowned researchers and scientists. Each chapter is written independently by an expert in his/her field of endeavor, ranging from the botany, the constituents, the chemistry and pharmacokinetics, the effects and consequences of illicit use on the human body, to the therapeutic potential of the cannabinoids.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Methods and Advances in Traditional Chinese Medicine describes analytical chemistry methods used to characterize constituents of herbal remedies, explore their mechanisms of action singly and in concert, and support the clinical trials necessary to bring Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) into the mainstream of therapeutics. With recent advances in analytical instruments, molecular pharmacology, and genetics, it is now possible to investigate the bioactive molecules in a complex medicine on a rational basis. This book is the first to combine TCM with analytical chemistry methods toward this goal. The book begins with a brief history of TCM, consideration of its strengths and weaknesses, and a review of the literature on application of Western analytical methods. It continues with an examination of the concept of synergistic, multi-targeted action among components, followed by an analysis of how analytical chemistry and other methods are used to assure quality and uniformity of natural products within tolerable limits. It then addresses the complexity introduced by absorption, distribution, and metabolism of an already complex drug. The last chapter advocates a system biological approach as the way forward for drug discovery and development in TCM. Emphasizes the advantages of combining traditional medicine and modern tools for drug discovery and development Provides examples which source, identify, and assay materials; describe preparation of complex remedies and isolate or synthesize their components; characterize complexes and derivatives; and test selected entities for efficacy in animals and humans Explains the capabilities and limitations of various methods for evaluating test results, establishing the parameters of quality assurance
