Herbalist Sweet (The Wholistic Healing Guide to Cannabis) specializes in using cannabis as medicine. In this book, she teaches the step-by-step process of growing cannabis plants outdoors and how to make healing salves, tinctures, oils, and more to treat ailments and a range of other medical conditions. The book emphasizes that while cannabis products are widely available in some states, the quality of products varies. The effects of cannabis on the body’s chemical compound system are explained in a reader-friendly way. The author also addresses the many questions new cannabis growers might have along the way. The process is detailed by featuring photographs of each step, including starting seedlings, moving plants outdoors, entering the flowering phase, anticipating problems that may occur, harvesting plants, making recipes, and using cannabis remedies.
VERDICT There are many books on the subject, but the presentation and comprehensive style of Sweet’s will stand out from the rest. A good source of information about growing cannabis for medicinal purposes, ideal for beginners.
