Happy Buds: Marijuana for Any Occasion
By Ed Rosenthal

Pop quiz, hotshot. You waltz into your office, all unsuspecting like, only to find a request from THEEEE Ed Rosenthal for a book review…What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?? Well, after you wipe that look off your face and stop bragging to all your co-workers, you pack a big beautiful bowl of that sweet, sweet sensi and get to work!

In this case, I could not have been happier to see the title Happy Buds: Marijuana for Any Occasion by Ed Rosenthal. I sat down and read it from cover to cover almost immediately; paying special attention to the “Working It” section, which outlined the strains that can lend a little intellectual boost. After securing an amazing specimen of White Satin, as Mr. Rosenthal had suggested, I opened up my mind and my cannabinoid receptors, took a top shelf tube of some top shelf meds, and started writing this top shelf review.

Now in our present day, with the cumulative knowledge of our cultivating forefathers, and the advantage of an abundance of technology specific to growing fine medical grade cannabis, we smokers have the pick of the litter when it comes time to choose a medicine. Sometimes it can be a little overwhelming with the amount of options. So many to choose from, how do they affect me differently? How does this herb differ from that one?  Well, every smoker can now thank Ed and his team for putting in the hard work and figuring out how these individual cannabis varieties will affect the user. Happy Buds is an amazing catalog of over 80 different strains divided into 30 categories. No longer will you have to make the mistake of getting couch-locked on a big ole’ ripper of Kiwiskunk when you were actually trying to get up and get active with an eye-widening Buddah Haze doobie.

Coming from the man who wrote one of the greatest series ever of strain resource guides for marijuana in the form of The Big Book of Buds, Ed understands that there is a strain for every occasion. Like a fine wine being paired with the appropriate delectable food accompaniment, it’s just as important to have smoked the appropriate cannabis strain with anticipated high characteristics befitting to whatever activity you are about to get into. The photo work in the book is amazing as well. Striking imagery and seductive cola shots keep your mind dancing as you work your way through the various chapters. Well placed tips, handy trivia, delicious food and drink recipes, and an excellent resource for securing seeds from reputable seed banks are included as well. Happy Buds is complete with aroma and flavor profiles for the individual strains, expected high qualities, and an easy to follow index, which will guide you to the right strain for the right kind of experience. Fitness buds, party buds, cinematic buds, gettin’ it on buds, etc. Happy Buds is quite literally the ultimate guide for the marijuana user who wants to live life to the Highest!!!

SEX POT: The Marijuana Lover’s Guide to Gettin’ It On

Sex and Pot. If these are not two of your favorite things, then we probably would not be friends. Sex Pot: The Marijuana Lover’s Guide to Gettin’ It On. If this book and the self-professed bongslut Mamakind, who penned it, are not two of your favorite things, I say again, we probably would not be friends. With that said, I hope we are still friends…

Now I was familiar with Mamakind from her popular column “Roachplay,” so I knew how sexy and crafty her wordplay can be. She has never failed to keep it extremely straightforward and tell you exactly how it is – for men and women out there struggling with aspects of their sexuality. From what I can gather, she has seen it all, just about done it all, and really does not have a problem telling YOU all about it in detail. The way she is able to field reader questions about what would normally be some extremely awkward subject matter, is both humorous and informative. Usually you get one without the other. She breaches a wide spectrum of topics within modern human sexuality, peppering her discourse with anecdotes of how fine ganja flowers and finer hashish concentrates have assisted her in reaching her current state of sexual consciousness. Mamakind literally had me giggling from start to finish with her snappy retorts and over the top TMI explanations of her precarious sexual escapades. She has a unique ability to convey a relatively simple and somewhat serious message, but keep it lighthearted and comical throughout the curious dialogue.

One of the main points that I see repeated throughout the book is her notion that there really is nothing off-limits when it comes to your sexuality – so long as everyone is being safe, sane, and the action is consensual among any partner(s) involved; then, if it feels good, go for it! She stresses in many a colorful personal revelation that whether you are getting off or getting high, it always seems to be better when they are done together. I probably should throw out a little disclaimer that if you are offended by concepts like a vagina-bong or a list of amazing locations where this crazy stoner sexpot has flicked her bean, then this ain’t your read, lol!!! Mamakind does not shy away from any query and lets that skilled silver tongue of hers dance along topics of “skronkin,” relationships, pot, and the pursuit of happy highness. I would highly recommend referring to Ed Rosenthal’s book Happy Buds, which Mamakind also contributed to, for a particular strain that might heighten one’s sexual senses. Then sit down with your lover, get lifted, and take some of Mamakind’s advice! Start experimenting and allow your mind, body and soul to reach those previously unattained highs.
