As you know, support for marijuana is growing nationwide. Women across the US are answering the call by coming out of the “cannabis closet” in support of this female-friendly plant. In fact, women have played a key role in America’s marijuana legalization thus far.
Too long associated with masculine stereotypes and stigma, the truth is that marijuana offers benefits for people of all types and ages. In fact, cannabis complements many aspects of women’s lives, and can even treat problems unique to women’s health.
In Mary Jane: The Complete Marijuana Handbook for Women (Seal Press / 4-20-2015 / $18.00 / Full-Color), expert Cheri Sicard guides you through the wonderful world of weed—dispelling myths and misinformation while suggesting how you can best incorporate marijuana into your own life. Mary Jane strips away the hype and sensationalism to give you the straight dope on the science and culture of cannabis in a fun, friendly, and frank way—like a good friend should.
Sicard never would have thought that she would one day become a passionate marijuana activist. Once a closeted medical marijuana user, she now works with numerous reform groups and frequently organizes rallies, speaks at city council meetings, and gives classes on various aspects of marijuana. A professional writer, recipe developer, and internet entrepreneur, her previous book, The Cannabis Gourmet Cookbook, is one of the most popular and well-reviewed books of its kind.
Now, with Mary Jane, Sicard will help women make informed decisions about marijuana, and will provide a primer on the most popular varieties as well as advice on how to acquire it safely. Covering topics as diverse as cooking with cannabis and parenting responsibly, this handbook gives women the resource they need to embrace the marijuana lifestyle however they choose.
Providing crucial information for the increasing number of women who enjoy marijuana, Mary Jane is in a category of its own for women who are curious about and/or appreciate cannabis.
