This Bud's for You presents Rosenthal's next view on the cutting edge of cannabis trends. It's for people who enjoy marijuana consuming and growing including information about the plant, its effects, new trends and products, and the emerging industry.
It details new varieties commercially available with breeders giving their perspective on the hottest new strains and how classic varieties were crossed to create them. These are strains sold at local dispensaries in the form of bud, edibles, and concentrates. Some stores also sell seeds and clones. Seeds for these strains are available worldwide online.
It's also filled with tips and ideas from expert insiders: technical advice from the breeders, ways to judge marijuana and compare strains, and insights on how dispensary buyers make their selections. This Bud’s for You goes from micro to macro looks at the world’s favorite flower, zooming from large-scale commercial cultivation to the vital essences of trichome resin glands. Along the way, it covers product trends and emerging science, from the role of terpenes in creating marijuana’s high to the evolution of scientific extraction methods and the revival of artisanal hash-making techniques.
