Chapter Six:   THE BODY OF MEDICAL LITERATURE ON CANNABIS MEDICINE

    Our authority here is the ‘Body of Literature,’ starting with ancient materia medicas: Chinese and Hindu pharmacopoeias and Near Eastern cuneiform tablets, and continuing all the way into this century, including the 1966-76 U.S. renaissance of cannabis studies—some 10,000 separate studies on medicines and effects from the hemp plant.

    Comprehensive compendia of these works are designated as the prime sources for this medical chapter, as well as ongoing interviews with many researchers.
