Description:

This comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the psychiatry and neuroscience of Cannabis sativa (marijuana) places particular emphasis on psychotic disorders. It outlines the latest research enhancing our knowledge of the human cannabinoid system, and links it to clinical and epidemiological facts about the impact of cannabis on mental health. Controversial issues are critically explored, including whether a discrete "cannabis psychosis" exists.
