When we were kids, scratch ‘n’ sniff books were all the rage.
And now they’re back, bringing all kinds of ~adult~ subjects to life – including cannabis.
Just take The Scratch & Sniff Book of Weed, for example.
Created by Seth Matlins and Eve Epstein, the book aims to educate people about weed, looking into the history of the herb, as well as highlighting its multi-sensory qualities.
But if you think this is an easy read for when you’re high, think again.
The book covers 4,000 years of weed history in just 22 pages, covering its psychoactive, cultural, medicinal and sexual properties and uses.
It’s been described as an exploration of weed, ‘from the science behind the munchies to the botanical link between weed and beer; from weed’s sexual upsides to its (literal) sexual downsides; from Tupac to Shakespeare to why weed makes music sound better’.
So it’s pretty extensive.
