Worldwide there are an estimated 69,000 deaths per year from opioid overdose and 15,000,000 who suffer from opioid dependence. WHO

This is not about substituting one high for another or substituting Suboxone or methadone for heroin. This is about the care and treatment of the endocannabinoid system, under medical supervision, using medical cannabis to help treat chronic pain and addiction.

The endocannabinoid system can be compromised by many factors, such as stress, trauma, pesticides, chemicals, poor nutrition to name a few. We produce our own cannabinoids naturally in the body and they are known as endocannabinoids. When we develop internal cannabinoid deficiencies, external cannabinoids, hence cannabis, may be used. Cannabis is the medicine of the endocannabinoid system. When the endocannabinoid system is deficient, opioid regulation may not be functioning properly. This is what physicians trained in cannabis therapeutics will look for as part of their assessment for pain and medication management.

Many Veterans are battling opioid addiction. They are dying at twice the rate from opioid overdose than the general public. This book is dedicated to all U.S. Veterans. The foreword was written by Al Byrne, Lieutenant Commander, USN, ret., He is CEO of Veterans for Compassionate Care, LLC, and Co-Founder “Patients Out of Time.
