The One Minute Cannabist: a primer for medicinal cannabis newbies.

The One Minute Cannabist, a new concept in medicinal cannabis education, recently announced the launch of the first in a series of simple-to-read books for regular people wanting to explore cannabis as a medicinal therapy. The first in the series, The One Minute Cannabist: A Primer for Medicinal Cannabis Newbies, is written by seniors for seniors, as a quick and easy-to-comprehend compilation of the basics. It’s a perfect resource for those new to cannabis or for those wanting a refresher.

        The book, written by Robbin and Terry Lynn, explores how and why cannabis works, getting past the stigma of its use, therapy options and common sense implementation. Millions of seniors across the nation are getting all natural relief from arthritic, muscle and nerve pain, neuropathy, fibromyalgia, headaches, backaches, menopause systems, detoxing from opiates, sleeping better, increasing libido, decreasing everyday stress and anxiety and more, simply by using medicinal cannabis.

        “So many people—especially seniors—are interested, but not sure where or how to start. Understanding the physiology of why it works, the therapies available and how to dose for maximum effectiveness is key to success. A common misconception is that you have to smoke cannabis,” says Terry. “It’s a new world for anyone who only used cannabis recreationally in their youth. Today there are many non-inhalation therapies such as tinctures and topicals. We wrote this book to help people understand and navigate the use of cannabis no matter what their choice of ingestion.”

        “People 50 and over have unique challenges with medicinal cannabis, many have past experience and some have never tried it in their lives. One of the biggest challenges and most misunderstood is proper use and dosing. A comment we hear frequently is, ‘I don’t want to be high’,” explains Robbin. “The One Minute Cannabist takes the mystery out of the notion that you have to be stoned and stupid to get the most out of cannabis by demonstrating how to best select the products you use and most importantly, how to properly dose those products.”

        The amount of information about medicinal cannabis or even a specific condition to be treated with this healing herb can be overwhelming. The One Minute Cannabist: A Primer For Medicinal Cannabis Newbies is an ideal place to begin and makes a great quick reference for those with experience.

        Authors Robbin and Terry Lynn are cannabis consultants who specialize in helping people new or returning to cannabis understand and navigate all the latest methods for realizing the maximum benefits the plant has to offer. The lines of medicinal and recreational cannabis use have been greatly blurred over the last two decades. The Lynn’s have been driven to change the perception of who actually uses medicinal cannabis, helping people get past the stigma while elevating the industry through education, enlightenment and enrichment.
