A big part of what I want to achieve with We are Lux is to change minds, break stereotypes and smash cliches. I achieve this via unbiased education, and I spend countless hours talking with people who are unsure as to where they can source information to enable their research. I have been steadily building up my in-store book range over the past 3 years. Each and every book is chosen by me and I only stock them if I respect what the author is trying to achieve.
David Schmader is a prolific writer, very well known in the USA with over 20 years of writing autobiographical essays, performance pieces and newspaper columns. He is considered to be quite hilarious and speaks quite openly about this admiration for the magnificent herb that is cannabis. In 2016 he went all out and released a TEDx Talk titled “Coming Out Stoner”. This talk has had over half a million views, and I quite enjoyed it!
WEED THE USERS GUIDE
Described as a 21st century handbook for enjoying marijuana but I would describe it as so much more than that. Medicinal marijuana is taking off in a big way in Australia with 1000’s of prescriptions fulfilled monthly, sadly education on the benefits (and negatives) is not keeping up. Education that covers a myriad of topics ranging from history of the plant through to various methods of ingestion, just like this book. Destigmatisation requires knowledge, in my humble opinion.
The almost 200 pages contain comprehensive chapters with include illustrations covering the following topics.
- A brief history
- Methods of ingestion
- Varieties and effects
- Maximise your experience
- If you are high and don’t like it
- Safety and Legality
- Medical Marijuana 101
- Glossary of cannabis culture
I recommend this book for all my aficionados as well as my newbie customers as there is information galore within. Easy to read and a little funny!
