Congrats to SCC Board Member Dustin Sulak, DO who recently published the first foundational text on the clinical use of cannabis and cannabinoid therapies.
Primarily driven by popular demand, cannabis has returned to health care. However, most clinicians lack the knowledge essential for identifying candidates for treatment, maximizing benefit, guiding patients, and minimizing harm.
Dustin Sulak provides health care professionals of all kinds (physicians, psychologists, pharmacists, and nurses) an accessible and evidence-based reference. The book aims to empower them to intelligently discuss cannabis with their patients and implement cannabis and cannabinoid therapies with confidence. The book is based on over a decade of clinical experience and an extensive review of the literature. It “includes the history of cannabis in medicine, the foundations of endocannabinoid physiology, the pharmacological effects of cannabis’ myriad active constituents, the clinical utility of its various preparations, and specific strategies and cautions for treating the most common conditions presenting to a cannabis clinician. This guide is an essential resource for practitioners of any specialty field or experience level who wish to improve their patients’ outcomes, harness the healing potential of the endocannabinoid system, and wield a powerful solution to many of healthcare’s challenges.”
