Although she works in a legal marijuana market for a reputable cannabis producer, she says the information gleaned from those books is her foundation in growing cannabis
When I started smoking cannabis in the late 90s, there was still a major connotation around the plant. I had to hide it from our folks even after I graduated from undergraduate school. Only a handful of our school pals used the plant in the first locale, which is a far cry from the 2020s now that there are major celebrities being open about their frequent cannabis use. These afternoons you can get on the internet plus in hours have megabytes of information about cannabis, its effects, plus its long plus assorted history. But when I was first starting out as a marijuana smoker, everything I knew about the plant I had to learn from friends plus neighbors or from books. Some people might have heard about the Anarchist’s Cookbook plus its infamy as a guide on amateur bomb-making, but it’s just one of hundreds of other famous books that were published by underground companies laboring within the murky areas of the law. My marijuana grower friend first learned how to grow the plant from one of these books, plus she obtained it at a head shop with her other books on cannabis. Although she works in a legal marijuana market for a reputable cannabis producer, she says the information gleaned from those books is her foundation in growing cannabis. One of those books was called the Marijuana Growing Bible, plus I ended up buying a copy at one point. That’s where I learned about the history of landrace sativa and indica strains, along with the often forgotten ruderalis genre of cannabis plants.
