A psychiatrist and psychedelic researcher explores the science of connection—why we need it, how we’ve lost it, and how we might find it again. We are suffering from an epidemic of disconnection that antidepressants and social media can’t fix. This state of isolation puts us in “fight or flight mode,” deranging sleep, metabolism and libido. What’s worse, we’re paranoid of others. This kill-or-be-killed framework is not a way to live. But, when we feel safe and loved, we can rest, digest, and repair. We can heal. And it is only in this state of belonging that we can open up to connection with others. In this powerful book, Holland helps us to understand the science of connection as revealed in human experiences from the spiritual to the psychedelic. The key is oxytocin—a neurotransmitter and hormone produced in our bodies that allows us to trust and bond. It fosters attachment between mothers and infants, romantic partners, friends, and even with our pets. There are many ways to reach this state of mental and physical wellbeing that modern medicine has overlooked. The implications for our happiness and health are profound. We can find oneness in meditation, in community, or in awe at the beauty around us. Another option: psychedelic medicines that can catalyze a connection with the self, with nature, or the cosmos. Good Chemistry points us on the right path to forging true and deeper attachments with our own souls, to one another, and even to our planet, helping us heal ourselves and our world.

For starters, it is important to know and understand that different terms are used to define marijuana, yet they generally all mean the same: cannabis, which will be used interchangeably with marijuana throughout this guide, pot, herb, weed and ganja to name a few. Medical marijuana states, as from July 8, 2014, 22 states including the District of Columbia have enacted state medical marijuana legislation, and one state has come up with academic programs aimed at helping its patients in the future. These states are; Arizona, Alaska, Colorado, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Delaware, Illinois, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Massachusetts, Montana, New Hampshire, Nevada, New Mexico, New Jersey, New York, New Mexico, Rhode Island, Washington and Vermont. Another ten states; Iowa, Alabama*, Florida, Mississippi, Kentucky, North and South Carolina*, Wisconsin, Tennessee* and Utah have put in place laws that allow for a limited number of people to use CBD oil, which is a component of cannabis or high-CBD cannabis. The states with (*) are those with laws that create research programs and patients need to participate in the programs to get access to the marijuana oil. In the state of Florida, a popular law known as "Charlotte's Web" bill was named after a particular medical marijuana strain known to have low THC and high CBD content, but the law itself doesn't specify that a specific strain should be used. In May 2014, Minnesota also passed limited medical marijuana legislation. The legislation doesn't include people getting access to whole plant medicines in whatever form, but only concentrates or extracts and the actual smoking is not permitted. If you suffer from a medical condition in which therapeutic interventions or traditional drugs are not effectively working, medical marijuana doctors may recommend that you use marijuana to relieve symptoms and pain. This guide will discuss things to know about medical marijuana.
