Reporting for the Los Angeles Times on the international blind tasting competition held annually in Amsterdam known as the Cannabis Cup, novelist Mark Haskell Smith sampled a variety of marijuana that was unlike anything he’d experienced. It wasn’t anything like typical stoner weed, in fact it didn’t get you stoned. This cannabis possessed an ephemeral quality known to aficionados as “dankness.” Armed with a State of California Medical Marijuana recommendation, he begins a journey into the international underground where super-high-grade marijuana is developed and tracks down the rag-tag community of underground botanists, outlaw farmers, and renegade strain hunters who pursue excellence and diversity in marijuana, defying the law to find new flavors, tastes, and effects. This unrelenting pursuit of dankness climaxes at the Cannabis Cup, which Haskell Smith vividly portrays as the Super Bowl/Mardi Gras of the world's largest cash crop.

Beyond Buds is a handbook to the future of marijuana. Prohibition’s end has led to a technological revolution that’s generated powerful medicines and products containing almost zero carcinogens and little smoke. Marijuana icon Ed Rosenthal and leading cannabis reporter David Downs guide readers through the best new consumer products, and demonstrate how to make and use the safest, cleanest extracts. Beyond Buds details how award-winning artisans make hash and concentrates, and includes modern techniques utilizing dry ice and CO2. The book is a primer on making kief, water hash, tinctures, topicals, edibles, and other extracts from cannabis leaves, trim, and bud bits, and it goes on to explore and simplify the more exotic and trendy marijuana-infused products, such as butane hash oil (BHO), shatter, wax, and budder. More complex than lighting a joint, these innovative products call for new accessories — special pipes, dabbing tools, and vaporizers — all of which are reviewed and pictured in the book. Beyond Buds expands on Rosenthal’s previous book Ask Ed: Marijuana Gold — Trash to Stash. Completely updated with full-color photographs that are both “how-to” guides and eye candy, this book enables not only the health-conscious toker but also the bottom line–driven cultivator.

Use the perfect method for growing the small amounts of marijuana needed for medical use, easily, organically, and year-round, with a simple hydroponic system. Most people who are interested in growing medical marijuana at home aren't experienced in growing marijuana; they've just found themselves in a medical situation where it can help. The most efficient and intensive method of cultivating marijuana, especially on the small-scale grower level, is by hydroponic gardening. Also, hydroponic methods lend themselves easily to organic standards and rarely require pesticides. With step-by-step instructions and photos, hydroponics and marijuana-growing expert Joshua Sheets shows how to create, build, maintain, and harvest a hydroponic marijuana garden. He even includes information on the best nutrient solutions and breeding plants. Over 25 million Americans are potentially eligible to use medical marijuana based on their diagnoses, yet fewer than 800,000 currently do. As more eligible patients opt for alternative treatment options such as marijuana, a rising amount of medical marijuana will need to be produced to keep up with demand. Most states that permit medical marijuana growing allow the license-holder to grow a certain number of plants for home or medical use. Whether you use marijuana to aid health, especially to alleviate the effects of chemotherapy and other drugs, or, in states where it is legal, as a recreational drug similar to alcohol, Homegrown Marijuana is the perfect book to take control of your own production.
