cannabis books

Cannabis Pharmacy is a book that is sometimes used to train budtenders at medical dispensaries to make sure they understand how cannabis can help treat almost every ailment and condition that people suffer from today.


Part one of the practical guide explains how cannabis is a medicine by detailing the effects within the body and how the endocannabinoid system plays into everything. Part two is all about using medical cannabis such as how to deliver the right doses for each person's metabolism and there’s even a chapter that discusses using cannabis in the workplace. Part three contains information about the importance of cannabis strains and this section goes into detail about specific strains like Grand Daddy Purps, Skunk #1, White Widow and classics like OG Kush. The final part of the book discloses information on how to use the cannabis plant to treat conditions like pain, diabetes, seizures, cancer and even skin conditions.


Most readers seem to find Cannabis Pharmacy an informative guide to medical cannabis but it may be outdated on new strain information. If you are a medical patient, this is a book you need in your collection.

Beyond Buds is also a DIY guide to making BHO, CO2 extracts, kief, hash, tinctures, topicals, and edibles. The book also demonstrates how extracts are the future of cannabis by explaining why they are healthier on the lungs and have a potency level that can be extremely therapeutic.


Readers who love pictures will enjoy how this book has a bunch of high-quality photos of award-winning hash and concentrates throughout the pages that show the reader what top quality extracts look like.
