A handbook for understanding and using marijuana, written just for women--whether they're using it for medicinal relief or for pleasure. This book is like having a knowledgeable salesperson across the counter at a dispensary who can hand-sell you a product to fit your mood and tastes--because author Nikki Furrer is that person as a producer and distributor of marijuana products to dispensaries. The book answers the questions that Nikki receives from women every week.
Women of all ages are using cannabis to feel and look better. For rookies and experienced marijuana users alike, this lively, information-filled book is just the supportive guide you need to find the right dose to relieve anxiety, depression, and inflammation, and mitigate the onset of dementia and other signs of aging. Plus boost moods, ease aches, even lose weight, and get restful sleep. And a dose just for fun? Well, that works, too!
Here’s how to navigate the typical dispensary, with its overwhelming options of concentrates, edibles, vape pens, and tinctures. Understand the amazing health-giving compounds found in cannabis—THC, CBD, terpenes, and more—and how to use topicals to reduce pain and give your skin a healthy glow. There’s even advice on how not to get high but still reap all the amazing health benefits.
Plus over twenty recipes, from edibles like Classic Pot Brownies and Netflix and Chill Caramels to self-care products like Radiant Glow Serum and Happy Body Bar.
1) THE NEW WORLD OF MARIJUANA, FOR EXPERIENCED AND NEW USERS ALIKE: Even long-term pot smokers can find a recreational or medical dispensary overwhelming, with so many options: flower, dry sift, wave, live resin, vape pens, CO2 oil, huge varieties of edibles, patches, creams, and more. And approximately 22% of new medical marijuana patients are new users, who need help figuring out the world of using the drug. Currently 29 states and Washington, DC, have legalized medical marijuana, and recreational use has been legalized in Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington.
2) WHY A BOOK JUST FOR WOMEN? Everyone can get high, of course-but women tend to be more specific about the experience-what they liked or didn't like about a product, how their high felt, how long it lasted, whether it stopped their pain. Women tend to prefer lower potency and smaller doses of marijuana, and care more about feeling better than about feeling high. This book is written with this market in mind, and addresses the questions women ask most frequently.
