The Survivor's Guide to Medical Cannabis is Dr. Regina Nelson's follow-up to Amazon's top-selling book, The eCS Therapy Companion Guide (2015). It is an excellent patient resource and physician reference guide that has only been improved. As Nelson shares much has changed in the last three years and this excellent guide has more cannabis survivor stories. Nelson describes the endocannabinoid system (eCS) and phytocannabinoids (the cannabis sativa plant) in layman's terms. She helps readers understand the importance of medical cannabis and how it can be helpful, but she doesn't promise a cure. Instead, she describes in-depth how patients are using cannabis for nearly 100 terminal and chronic conditions she even shares her own patient journey. Nelson has a direct but entertaining style and her science is well-referenced and on-target. She is not a medical doctor, but a social scientist and medical cannabis patient. Additionally, she is an International Educator and Researcher. The Survivor's Guide to Medical Cannabis has been extended to include a short chapter on sexual health as Dr. Nelson has recently announced she will be leading a cannabis product and sexual health study.
