"Matt Mernagh is a fantastic writer, a passionate medical cannabis activist, and a knowledgeable marijuana connoisseur [who] teaches people how to identify what kind of marijuana they are buying, what it's going to smell and taste like, and what the effects of smoking it will be." S.T. Oner, best-selling author of Marijuana Chef Cookbook
Matt Mernaghs Marijuana Smokers Guidebook
is the ultimate field guide for marijuana. Featuring 180 commercially-available cannabis strains from across the world, this book shows and tells you how to identify and enjoy the buds youve got, the buds you want and the buds you might never even have heard of.
Though there are a great many strain guides currently available, they all feature rare and difficult to find strains, and show how each different plant looks as it grows. This is great for cannabis connoisseurs and breeding professionals, but what about the everyday street smoker who just needs to identify and know about the buds hes buying?
Written and photographed with this inquisitive everyday smoker in mind, Marijuana Smokers Guidebook features 180 descriptions and smoke reports of North Americas most popular marijuana strains as well as high resolution photos of each bud to show you exactly what your nugs should look like. Unlike some strain guides which use glorified catalog copy as strain descriptions, every single strain in this book has been smoked by Matt Mernagh himself, with an informative, original and entertaining write up and high resolution photo to bring you up to speed on your weed.
Pocket-sized and featuring photos and descriptions of strains from Barneys Farms LSD to the elusive Jean Guy, and many more for all your favorite smokes, Marijuana Smokers Guidebook is the indispensible resource for everyone who loves pot and wants to learn more about how to identify and enjoy good marijuana.
About the Author
is possibly the most infamous medical marijuana patient in North America — despite not actually being in the medical cannabis program. Since spending two nights in Torontos Don Jail having been caught cultivating the citys largest balcony grow, Mernagh has been embroiled in a complex legal battle with roots as deep as the Constitution. The ultimate goal is to allow patients to grow their own medicine without restrictive and illogical licenses from the government's broken medical marijuana program. In the meantime, Mernagh has a court ordered exemption from the countrys marijuana laws, making him the only person in Canada legally entitled to grow and possess his own weed.
Mernagh has been a writer and activist for 15 years, and was a regular contributor to Toronto papers NOW and Exclaim! as well as Marc Emerys Cannabis Culture. He currently runs an extensive collection of cannabis smoke reports on his website, Mernagh.ca, and hosts the Mernajuana Show every week from Torontos Vapor Central.
