Despite thousands of years of medical use and an impressive record of safety, versatility, and efficacy, Cannabis sativa has existed outside the modern pharmacopeia since the 1940s. Primarily driven by popular demand, this botanical has returned to health care, but most clinicians lack the knowledge essential for identifying candidates for treatment, guiding patients, maximizing benefit, and minimizing harm.
So Dr. Dustin Sulak decided to write the first foundational text on the clinical use of cannabis and cannabinoid therapies, the Handbook of Cannabis for Clinicians: Principles and Practice.
Dustin Sulak, D.O. is a renowned integrative medicine physician based in Maine, whose practice balances the principles of osteopathy, mind-body medicine, and medical cannabis.
In the last episode of his 4 part series with Dr. Leigh Vincour MD, MS, Dr. Sulak shares his inspiration behind writing the textbook and how to use it.
