Cannabis is a hot topic and people everywhere want to learn more about the plant, the people, and the issue. According to a recent Quinnipiac University national survey, 60% of Americans favor legalizing marijuana for adult use and 93% approve of legalizing medical marijuana. To date, 30 states have legalized medical marijuana and 9 have completely legalized it. Still, even as other states consider the option of legalizing marijuana there remain many questions, confusions and misconceptions about marijuana. Cannabis For Dummies, written by Cannabis industry expert, Kim Casey, aims to answer many of those questions and serve as a guide to all there is to know about marijuana. Currently available for pre-order, Cannabis For Dummies is set to be published on May 14th and will be available wherever books are sold.

 

Cannabis For Dummies covers everything there is to know about marijuana in the no-nonsense, straight-to-the-point, signature style that Dummies is known for. The book begins by breaking down the anatomy and chemistry of marijuana and covers the basics of cannabis in politics and in culture. Author Kim Casey covers growing, buying, storing, and using cannabis, and outlines how to use cannabis safely and responsibly. Cannabis For Dummies highlights the potential benefits of medicinal marijuana for humans and pets and details how to go about starting a cannabis business. Additionally, the book breaks down the information into “The Part of Tens,” including:

 

  • Ten Tips for Growing More and Better Weed
