Author: Jeffrey Friedland

There never has been a plant as important to mankind, yet so misunderstood as the cannabis plant. For at least 10,000 years cannabis has been tied to human civilization. It was important as a source of fiber, for clothing, rope; and paper; as an herbal medicine; and yes, as a psychoactive substance for religious and spiritual purposes.

In Marijuana: The World's Most Misunderstood Plant, Jeffrey Friedland delves into the background and history of the plant. He explains how the variety of names, marijuana, cannabis and hemp created confusion and ultimately led to marijuana led to marijuana being classified as a Schedule I drug, along with heroin.

Friedland explains why the plant affects us, its history, breed­ ing, growing, and processing. The book describes how the plant is used today, including from smoking to dabbing and vaping to edibles.

Friedland focuses on the huge-potential for marijuana-based medicine. The book provides an introduction to the human en­ docannabinoid system and why marijuana is useful for so many health issues.
