“This book arrives at a crucial time for a nation that’s suffering. Klee Irwin has delivered an insightful and riveting look at the root causes behind America’s health crisis, and, crucially, offers up a possible path back to our collective well-being.”—Ashlee Vance, New York Times bestselling author of Elon Musk and host of Hello World
Set to be released through Page Two Books on November 13, Klee Irwin’s Pain Nation: Sick, Stressed, and All F*cked Up: Is CBD the Cure is a brilliant, original exploration of how the CBD revolution is going to transform Americans’ lives.
We are an anxious and uptight nation on the brink, divided by a broken political system and a president who is pushing us over the edge. Many of us are agitated about terrorism, guns, religious fundamentalism, and refugees. With only 5% of the global population, we consume 80% of the world’s prescription opioids, antidepressants, and amphetamines―addictive drugs prescribed by medical doctors and known to cause paranoia, homicidal tendencies, and psychosis. Even those who aren’t prescribed these medicines are accessing them―think kids using their parents’ medication―with disastrous results. Those who can’t access opiates through legal means are finding them on the street, resulting in an opioid crisis with overdoses on the rise. The United States has the highest level of suicide in the world. We’re stressed, both mentally and physically. We’re a nation in pain.
How do we deal with this pervasive sickness? CBD (cannabidiol), perhaps the most profound plant medicine ever discovered. Extensive research over the last decade shows that this miracle molecule of the cannabis plant helps with countless medical conditions like nothing we’ve seen before (and no, it can’t get you high). CBD has a proven effect on everything from chronic pain and epilepsy to anxiety and depression. In this provocative book, Klee Irwin makes a compelling case that we should stop being afraid to try this plant medicine. CBD could be the answer so many Americans are seeking.
