With decriminalization of cannabis throughout Canada and many US States, many first-time users (as well as some longtime users) are seeking advice about this mysterious herbal product that’s touted as a health remedy, painkiller and recreational phenom, now can find loads of fascinating information about this hemp product in a short, yet relatively comprehensive little book, “Weed—Smoke It, Eat It, Grow It, Love It,” by Ellen Holland and first ever female Iron Chef, Cat Cora.

This fun and fact-filled cannabis reference guide discusses sustainable industrial farming of the herb; CBD vs. THC varietals, smells and tastes—finding your perfect blend; recipes for cooking, cocktails and other herbal concoctions; essential oils and aromatics; as well as creative and festive events and activities centered around this herbal essence.

“Weed” is a colorful compendium of fascinating information about cannabis. It’s everything that you always wanted to know, but didn’t know who to ask or where to go for all of the answers.
