Discover 10 evidence-based ways that cannabis can improve your life--and how to consume the plant to reap the most benefits--including better sleep, stress reduction, weight loss, chronic pain relief, anti-aging, support for cancer recovery, and so much more.

"What can cannabis do for you? Amanda Siebert has all the answers."--Peter Moore, former editor of Men's Health

Cannabis. Weed. Bud. Whatever you choose to call it, it's been a health aid, comfort, and life-enhancer for humankind for more than three thousand years. But while cannabis is used by hundreds of millions of people around the world, more than a century of prohibition has resulted in confusion about its status: Is it healthy? Is it medicinal? Will it make you crazy?

In this fun, illuminating book, cannabis journalist Amanda Siebert delves deep into the latest research to separate marijuana fact from fiction, revealing ten evidence-based ways this potent little plant can improve your life. She speaks with some of the world's top researchers, medical professionals, and consultants to answer questions such as: Can cannabis help you get a full night's sleep? Does it aid in exercise and weight loss? Can it really cure cancer? She also offers practical advice for maximizing its benefits--including easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for how to enjoy everything from joints to edibles, CBD oil to oral sprays--as well as examples of real people who have used cannabis to enhance their lives. This powerful plant, it turns out, could be life-changing: it can enrich any diet, slow down aging, and even spice things up in the bedroom.
