very detailed and informative.

Not an easy listen because it is so technical, but well worth it! The hard copy would be a great reference source. The audible would not work well in this capacity. A medical or scientific background is helpful in comprehending this extensive work.

Need to Know Information for Medical provider

This is Need to Know Information for Medical providers. Our Pharmacy books do not include information on Cannabis. This is definately a reference book. Listening to it made me realize how much I didn’t know.

Most informative

All you need to know about cannabis. Easy to understand and relatable. If you are into the very technical aspects of cannabis there is plenty of info for you too. I particularly enjoyed the historical background of the development of various strains. I will be purchasing a hard copy to have as a reference book.
