Beyond Buds is a handbook to the future of marijuana. Prohibition’s end has led to a technological revolution that’s generated powerful medicines and products containing almost zero carcinogens and little smoke. Marijuana icon Ed Rosenthal and leading cannabis reporter David Downs guide readers through the best new consumer products, and demonstrate how to make and use the safest, cleanest extracts. Beyond Buds details how award-winning artisans make hash and concentrates, and includes modern techniques utilizing dry ice and CO2. The book is a primer on making kief, water hash, tinctures, topicals, edibles, and other extracts from cannabis leaves, trim, and bud bits, and it goes on to explore and simplify the more exotic and trendy marijuana-infused products, such as butane hash oil (BHO), shatter, wax, and budder. More complex than lighting a joint, these innovative products call for new accessories — special pipes, dabbing tools, and vaporizers — all of which are reviewed and pictured in the book. Beyond Buds expands on Rosenthal’s previous book Ask Ed: Marijuana Gold — Trash to Stash. Completely updated with full-color photographs that are both “how-to” guides and eye candy, this book enables not only the health-conscious toker but also the bottom line–driven cultivator.

Medical edibles have come a long way since the infamous pot brownies that were consumed with crunchy, awful-tasting leaves and stems. Aunt Sandy’s Medical Marijuana Cookbook is a collection of recipes by cooking instructor, Sandy Moriarty, who is a professor at Oaksterdam University in Oakland Ca. Oaksterdam University has pioneered training for jobs in the booming marijuana industry. The cookbook is retro in design and content, reminiscent of classic Betty Crocker-type comfort foods. Some of Sandy’s favorites include mac and cheese, spicy buffalo wings, and scalloped potatoes. The book visually demonstrates and reveals the process for creating Sandy’s 10x Cannabutter. It includes 40 easy-to-prepare, delicious dishes from her signature dessert, Blue Sky Lemon Bars, to the Dizzy Bird Turkey with Stuffing for a festive holiday dinner. The book updates some of the classics with low-calorie, vegetarian, vegan, sugar-free and gluten-free options. Each individual’s potency level is different. The author teaches how potency can be adjusted by the amount of plant material used in the butter, oil or tincture. The American Medical Association has now recognized the medical value of marijuana and the federal government has provided medical marijuana to selected medical patients for many years.
