After the Hemp Farming Act of 2018 was passed in the U.S. Congress, companies hoping to cash in on the newly legal crop began offering consumers a variety of products that touted the benefits of CBD and hemp. Author, master gardener, and sustainable living expert Webb (Getting Laid: Everything You Need To Know about Raising Chickens, Gardening, and Preserving) aims to help readers new to the cannabis culture to separate fact from fiction. After giving a valuable overview of hemp and CBD, Webb details the varieties of CBD products available, then discusses growing and preserving medicinal herbs, spices, and edible flowers and consuming them along with hemp and CBD, via baked goods, medicinal teas, and infusions. Recipes for homemade bath and beauty products round out the book, and an excellent list of resources provides options for those wanting to learn more.
VERDICT Webb’s practical, common-sense approach ensures that even skeptics will come away with a better understanding and appreciation for the possibilities of incorporating hemp and CBD into our gardens, kitchens, and medicine cabinets.
