What you think you know about cannabis and what is the reality of cannabis are likely two very different things. After reading this book I can understand now why so many want this plant made legal (or better yet, deregulated completely). Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN medical correspondent, has said we have been "systematically mislead" by our governments about the risks of cannabis and its wonderful health benefits ... he is being kind -- we have been lied to. After a 30+ career in public health, I thought that few things could still open my eyes when it came to health and well being -- this book did it. I have studied this issue now for 4+ years and in the future the ONLY government politicians that I will vote for are those who are ready to show the courage to legalize/deregulate cannabis -- the rest need not apply for my vote ... and after you read this book. I suspect many of you might feel the same.

Clint Werner new did a great job and I hope he has a second book in him.

Bought it for a friend who is suffering from a terminal form of cancer. Have no idea if what the book says is true or not. My friend seemed to get hope out of it. That was good enough for me. A great gift.

HASH(0x9ac559d8) out of 5 stars A Must-Read For Scientific Truth-Seekers Sept. 26 2011
By Andreas V. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a rare and special book. To write a book like this, an author must be a courageous, independent, and discerning investigator with impeccable journalistic integrity. Unfortunately, these qualities are sorely lacking in today's world of investigative reporting. And, unfortunately, the lack of such qualities leads to terrible misinformation, not only about cannabis but about many other "controversial" issues. This book is meticulously researched and intelligently organized, and its massive research content is masterfully distilled. It is also well written, and that allows the reader to easily understand the scientific foundations for the ultimate research conclusions. If everyone in the U.S. read this book, our entire medical establishment would be turned up-side-down. Or maybe I should say, right-side-up. In one word: Brilliant!

HASH(0x9ac55c24) out of 5 stars Fascinating read Oct. 6 2011
By Eclipse Chaser - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The peer review system used in modern science generally provides a good way for advancements to take place. However when politics gets in the way the system fails. This books tells an amazing story about what the research has revealed and how political influence has made real progress difficult. Written in a style that is interesting and fun to read this book packs a lot of information for those curious to know about alternatives. You don't have to be a science wonk to enjoy this book and if you are (like me) you will find that the science presented is very interesting.

I was attracted to this book because cancer, Alzheimer's, and ALS have claimed the lives of my parents and grandparents. While I don't know if a cure can be found for these terrible diseases, it was encouraging to learn that there could be natural based solutions or preventatives. Just let the research continue, please!

Marijuana: Gateway to Health by Clint Werner

This timely book delves into the ongoing quagmire between the scientific community and the federal government concerning the medicinal properties of marijuana. While the Feds continue to insist that marijuana has no accepted medical value and is too dangerous to use, this ignorant statement blatantly contradicts the results of many promising studies. Author Clint Werner has examined the current research, and summarized it in "Marijuana: Gateway to Health." The book's subtitle "How Cannabis Protects Us from Cancer and Alzheimer's Disease," evokes a new era of understanding about our human relationship to the cannabis plant. Not only can marijuana help treat many serious diseases, it also demonstrates remarkable effectiveness as a preventative medicine.

"Marijuana: Gateway to Health" is divided into two parts; Part One details the science of cannabis' healing properties and Part Two addresses the history of medical marijuana and the political battles being fought to legitimize this helpful plant. Written for the layman, Werner does an excellent job of engaging the reader and making scientific concepts clear and easy to understand. He explains the endocannabinoid system that regulates many aspects of human health, and proceeds to outline many fascinating facts about the cancer-fighting properties of cannabinoids. It seems that THC can prevent aggressive cancers from spreading, making it an effective treatment for lung, breast, brain and pancreatic cancers, along others. Werner writes "... we can see that regular, long-term marijuana use may be powerfully protective against developing ... cancer."

Also, it seems that cannabis can protect the brain against the ravages of Alzheimer's disease with such astonishing success that "An urgent move to develop cannabis therapies for Alzheimer's patients should be underway, especially because of the complete lack of effective conventional treatments." Citing research from the Guzman team in Madrid, we learn that "`cannabinoids succeed in preventing the neurodegenerative process occurring in the disease.'" Werner also covers other cannabinoids such as CBD, the benefits of the various terpenes, and cannabinoid deprivation syndrome. Loaded with footnotes and packed with information, "Marijuana: Gateway to Health" will teach any skeptic how medical marijuana heals people and why the continuing prohibition against it is immoral and illogical.

When our opponents in the debate over medical marijuana insist that not enough research has been done, as in the recent LA Times editorial that opines "The DEA is right in saying there's not enough scientific evidence about the medical uses of cannabis," you can be glad that in "Marijuana: Gateway to Health," Clint Werner has provided the ammo to fire back in the form of facts and scientific findings. We must demand that the federal government acknowledge this evidence, reschedule cannabis, and make this healing herb part of a healthy lifestyle for everyone.

HASH(0x9ac581e0) out of 5 stars Marijuana in Perspective Oct. 7 2011
By 88 yr old Virginia Republican - Published on
Format: Paperback
Controversial and upsetting to some, Marijuana, properly understood, has potential for good as well as abuse - a positive aspect largely overlooked in the controversy surrounding it. Author Clint Werner has taken a fresh look at how cannabis can play a positive role in promoting good health -- and presents it in an interesting and easily understood way. Moreover, he puts Cannabis in perspective: providing fresh insights, exploding myths and providing a handy reference to anyone seeking authoritative information on the subject. Carefully researched and meticulously annotated, "Gateway....." is a long overdue review of an old and much maligned subject.

HASH(0x9ac583fc) out of 5 stars Health is Wealth, and so is this Book! Jan. 29 2012
By Dave M. Dunn - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There aren't many books I'd get up at 3:00 AM in the morning to write a review about. I've read my copy cover to cover twice, with delight! I'd be reading it the third time this weekend if I hadn't loaned it to a friend to help her understand how to regain her health. Mr. Werner's book is amazing. From cover to cover it is filled with desperately needed information concerning the healing power of cannabis. It offers incredible insight into the history of healing of one of nature's most magnificent gifts to mankind.

I'll be ordering dozens more, to give as gifts to special people in my life. My gratitude and respect Mr. Werner.
