About the Authors
  • The second edition of this critically acclaimed and award-winning text provides a comprehensive overview of the psychiatry and neuroscience of Cannabis sativa (marijuana). It outlines the very latest developments in our understanding of the human cannabinoid system, and links this knowledge to clinical and epidemiological facts about the impact of cannabis on mental health. Clinically focused chapters review not only the direct psychomimetic properties of cannabis, but also the impact consumption has on the courses of evolving or established mental illnesses such as schizophrenia. Effects of cannabis on mood are reviewed, as are its effects on cognition. This new edition has been extensively updated and expanded with 10 new chapters to incorporate major new research findings. This book will be of interest to all members of the mental health team, as well as to neuroscientists, epidemiologists, public health specialists and those involved in drug and alcohol research.

    • Winner of the Mental Health Book of the Year award for 2005 from the British Medical Association
    • Covers basic science, epidemiology and clinical aspects, presenting a multidimensional approach
    • Written by international leading researchers and clinicians

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is a must-have reference for anyone interested or involved in cannabinoid research, clinical treatment of patients with addictions, or public health policy in the area of marijuana … 4 stars!"
    Doody's Review Services

    "For colleagues in the mental health field, and in particular those specializing in addictions, this text can serve as an up-to-date and comprehensive reference. Moreover, before moving ahead on marijuana-related legislation, any governor, lawmaker, or physician with 'medicinal' inclinations - as well as the general public - would be well-advised to become familiar with the contents of this book."
    Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
