Canada is now 420 friendly. Recreational marijuana has been legalized, which means there’s a whole industry waiting to blow up and change the world. For the better, or worse? Well, that’s for you to decide. Here’s five books featuring Mary Jane as the protagonist that will help you become better informed about weed.
- The Scratch & Sniff Book of Weed by Eve Epstein and Seth Matlins
Taking the once-popular scratch and sniff books firmly into adult territory, The Scratch & Sniff Book of Weed will have your nose tingling and better yet, is legal everywhere.
2. The Little Book of Cannabis by Amanda Siebert
This book takes a look at all the latest research surrounding marijuana and tries to make sense of what that means for the end user. Siebert interviewed and spoke to the world’s top marijuana-minded people to separate fact from fiction.
3. Hemp Bound by Doug Fine
Cannabis sativa is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber thousands of years ago. This product, hemp, can then be refined into paper, fabric and textiles, paint, and biodegradable plastics and much more.
Fine makes the case that hemp could be the catalyst for the next agricultural revolution in America and beyond. Well, catch up Americans!
4. Herb: Mastering the Art of Cooking With Cannabis by Laurie Wolf, Melissa Parks and Bruce Wolf
Marijuana: it’s not just for smoking. Explore all the ways you can incorporate weed into your cooking repertoire. Wolf is an award-winning “culinary entrepreneur”. Melissa Parks is a classically trained chef and cannabis educator. They know their stuff, and it’s all beautifully photographed by Bruce Wolf, Laurie’s husband.
5. Big Weed by Christian Hageseth
How does the weed business work? Let Christian Hageseth (the founder of Green Man Cannabis) tell you all about it. Read this book if you’re interested in the business aspects of the marijuana industry – but it also might give you insight into how marijuana can work for you, even if you’re not using it (investing, anyone?)
