Review: “The Medical Cannabis Primer”- The Guide We All Need to Read.
A Cannabis In Real Life Review by Dan Larkin
Getting clear, concise, and easy to understand information about cannabis is tough. There are lots of resources but which ones can you trust? How can you be sure the information isn’t biased? How are you supposed to even understand all the terminology and science? Is it even legal?

Research Team Lead at CannaLytica, Jon Calder, recently reviewed The Medical Cannabis Primer. The reivew is available on both LinkedIn.com and Medium.com. This one is much more sophisticated than previous reviews. Thank you, Mr. Calder, for taking the time to dig in deep.

Beautifully designed and laid out by her brother, himself a Medical User — possibly her motivation for putting together this single volume reference text, this text makes a worthy addition to any patient’s self-education, and could well be a useful point of first information for clinicians.

Hayden goes on to state, "Exhaustively ― but not exhaustingly ― complete, the primer cuts through the thick jungle of research and opinion on the topic to present only the most accurate and up-to-date information with lots of photography and easy-to-understand illustrations, tables, and charts."

Renowned cannabis educator, Lolita Korneagay of Cansoom, recently reviewed The Medical Cannabis Primer and said some nice things about our book:
"The book is only 10 chapters and about 144 pages, but it was chocked full of interesting information.
"I thought that this book would be filled with the same information that I already know...I do feel that Ruth touched all of the major points and she even brought up a couple of points that I had not considered before.
"I think that this book is great for people who are curious about using cannabis medically and it’s also a great refresher for the medical cannabis professional."
Thank you, Lolita!
