Authors Melanie Abrams and Larry Smith come to Mrs. Dalloway's to launch their new book The Joy of Cannabis: 75 Ways to Amplify Your Life Through the Science and Magic of Cannabis. It's a sophisticated and humorous cannabis book to enhance your life and promote self-care through the science and magic of weed.
With a toolkit of the basics to get you started and a curated set of 75 activities, The Joy of Cannabis is a road map to a higher and happier you. In it you'll find science-based research as well as charts, essays, and fun facts from bold thinkers. The activities--tested and approved by authors Melanie Abrams and Larry Smith--teach you how to amplify pleasure through bonding and intimacy, deepen meditation to help with social anxiety and sleep, and elevate your cooking with innovative cannabis-infused recipes. You'll even learn why the word marijuana rarely appears in the book.
From improving sleep and decreasing anxiety to promoting focus and making the ordinary extraordinary, recreational cannabis' time is now. Whether you purchase it as a self-care book for yourself or the men and women in your life or give it as a gift for a friend, get ready to experience the Golden Age of Cannabis. You're going to love it here.
