I am a huge fan of this book the bud shots make it way worth it. There are some fantastic pictures (see cover shot) from a great list of growers and breeders.
If you are interested in marijuana strains, you really need to get a copy of this book. It will give you all the info you need to know if you're interested in indica strains, and if you want a solid coffee table book, you should grab a copy because the pictures are so crisp and sharp looking it is incredible! A definite must have for anyone interested in the plant.
If you have a friend that loves pot, get this as a gift. They will love it. Grab a copy. You will not regret it! Beautiful!
It's got everything you need: Genetic information on each of the plants (parental genetics, history etc.), cultivation information for each of the plants (tips from the breeders on how to grow the plant to its fullest potential), and, of course, information on what it is like to smoke/consume the plant, the type of high, potency, and effects. Incredible. No other book does it like this. If you like pot, get this book.
It already acquainted me with the outlandish cold weather growth characteristics of the Mazar-I-Sharif. And the pictures of the Grape Stomper and it's trichome covered fanleaves and buds are insane.
I would recommend buying this book and future volumes to anyone who is in the weed business, or just wants to grow their own varieties, where it is legal to do so of course.
First, it should be mentioned that on the surface this is a "Bud Book". Much like other books in the same class the reader gets one page of description coupled with a large photo of a bud growing and bursting with trichomes. These books can be used in one of two ways:
1. The reader can simply use the book as a coffee table decoration or a "bathroom reader" and gaze in wonder at the photos as well as day dream about growing these fascinating strains.
2. The reader can actually USE the book as a catalog. Many reviewers of similar books have stated that one can find this information online for free but how is one to know what they are seeking? This book and it's sibling book work to solve this problem. By knowing what you are looking for the information finding process will become much easier.
Many readers will probably notice immediately that the strains listed as well as the breeders are uncommon or almost unheard of. This is where action will help. It is not going to be as easy for some strains to simply go to your favorite seed bank online and type in the name. The reader will find there will be a need to actually get in contact with the seed breeder itself and set up an order.
Some breeders are in other countries so there may be a need for the assistance of free online translators such as Babylon to actively hold an email conversation with them.Read more ›

Great images and descriptions ... of the few strains that it covers. The problem is that covers only a fraction of those out there, so I end up getting online all the time anyway. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Dionne R. Deschenne
