He recommends foods, herbs, and supplements likely to ease pain, lower stress, and boost mental and physical function. He addresses the notable medicinal benefits of CBD, THC, and the many terpenes associated with cannabis’s reputation for healing, and teaches how to be a smart consumer of cannabinoids.Foundations of Health provides a unique understanding and approach to healing that will forever change the way we think of our bodies and our physical health.
