The first thing you might notice about The Little Book of Cannabis: How Marijuana Can Improve Your Life is how aptly it fits its title. Written by award-winning journalist and cannabis writer Amanda Siebert, The Little Book of Cannabisclocks in at just over 200 pages long, but it’s a small book full of 10 big ways that show how cannabis can benefit you and “improve your life”.
Amanda Siebert writes in an engaging and conversational style and The Little Book of Cannabis is filled to the brim with “Did You Know?” facts like:
- the earliest documented medicinal use of cannabis was found in China circa 2737 BCE
- Queen Victoria’s physician administered cannabis tinctures in the 1800s before it was made illegal
As you delve into the cultural, medical, and scientific aspects of cannabis, the author takes care to highlight the human side of cannabis in anecdotes and stories sprinkled throughout the book, and it complements the case studies and research and helps put a face to the numbers.
You might even find parts of this book extremely relatable, like when the author details her own personal journey with cannabis. She even kicks the book off with her first cannabis experience, when at the age of 14, she rebelled against the vehement opposition of her parents, teachers, and authorities- and realized that hey, maybe cannabis wasn’t so bad after all.
