"The wait is finally over. At last there is a book that provides an easy-to-understand introduction to a plant that has been so important to mankind for thousands of years, yet victimized in the U.S. for the past 70+ years."

Cannabis Medical Insider


The World's Most Misunderstood Plant


There never has been a plant as important to mankind, yet so misunderstood as the cannabis plant. For at least 10,000 years cannabis has been tied to human civilization. It was important as a source of fiber, for clothing, rope, and paper; as an herbal medicine; and yes, as a psychoactive substance for religious and spiritual purposes.


In Marijuana: The World’s Most Misunderstood Plant, Jeffrey Friedland explains how its various names, cannabis, marijuana, hemp and ganja created confusion and how its name of marijuana led to its illegal status for most of the 20th century.


Friedland explains why the plant affects us, its history, breeding, growing, and processing. The book describes how the plant is used today, including from smoking to dabbing and vaping and as capsules. Marijuana: The World’s Most Misunderstood Plant explains how marijuana, became victimized as part of a racially motivated campaign by the U.S. government and media that led to its ban. 


Friedland focuses on the huge potential for cannabis-based medicine. The book provides an introduction to the human endocannabinoid system, and why marijuana works to suppress pain, as an important anti-inflammatory, and provides other medical benefits.


In Marijuana: The World’s Most Misunderstood Plant, Friedland highlights the latest research on the medical use of cannabis; from asthma to glaucoma, from cancer to seizures, from arthritis to Crohn’s disease, and its general benefit as a painkiller.


For readers who are suffering from medical conditions or diseases, Friedland provides a starting point in explaining why cannabis could be beneficial as a treatment option.


Marijuana: The World’s Most Misunderstood Plant also provides readers with a background necessary to understand the current global movement to decriminalize or legalize this important plant for medical and recreational purposes.

All Roads Lead to China:

An investor road map to the world's fastest growing economy


Many in the west have refused to acknowledge that an economic war has been underway, one from which there will emerge winners and losers.


In All Roads Lead to China, Jeffrey Friedland takes the position that the war is already over and that the victor is China and the vanquished are the U.S. and Europe. Friedland believes that the U.S. and the euro zone will become by mid-century, at best, second tier economies.In All Roads Lead to China, Friedland makes the case that investors have everything to gain from China’s economic prosperity, and much to lose by ignoring it. He also makes a compelling argument that returns from investing in mature economies, including the United States and the euro zone, will not be as rewarding over the long-run, compared to returns from investing in China.


Friedland explains that China is the most important story for our generation, and the generations to follow. He describes that as the United States and Europe are mired in their own financial problems, China will soon be the world’s largest economy and its growth over the next twenty to fifty years will outpace that of the rest of the world.All Roads Lead to China provides investors with the background necessary to understand the country, it’s history and enormous potential.


The book describes the different ways to invest and numerous financial products that are available, including shares of companies, mutual funds and exchange traded funds. Savvy investors know they should include China in their portfolios, but few know how to proceed. All Roads Lead to China provides that road map for investors or anyone else who wish to have a better understanding of China and its potential.
