How To Be A Professional Pothead

For the past few weeks I’ve been pondering how to present Marijuana Smoker’s Guidebook The Easy Way To Identify and Enjoy Marijuana Strains because I wanted something more than a bland book signing. Ideas rolled around my head during sessions and I jotted notes down in a journal, but it wasn’t until a few days ago it all came together.

How To Be A Professional Pothead brings years of marijuana review writing and strain hunting into a convenient cannabis course. I’m pouring through old material and notes to create a unique experience that’ll enhance our enjoyment of cannabis.

There’s more to life than just Kush or Cookies. Wine and whisky enthusiasts have terminology, seek out specific brands and ages and they immerse themselves in their hobby just like how top tier toking cannabis enthusiasts do. However, not enough potheads have an opportunity to be professional heads.

And I want to change all that. I’m on a mission – a mission to stop you from smoking bad quality weed and buying sugared buds masquerading as Sour Diesel. I joke we’re (cannabis culture / pot tv hosts) the 1%er of cannabis. Everyone should have an opportunity to up their ganja game, but outside of a few cannabis friendly capitals, Chemdawg, Jean Guy, and Green Crack are mostly marijuana lore.

Then there are region specific favorites. These marijuana strains are very popular in a specific areas, but found less-and-less the farther from the nug nexus you get.  

At one time marijuana information was passed like a joint in circle, but these days there’s no good reason not to be in the know. The interweb, social media and books from Green Candy Press has made marijuana knowledge much more commonplace.

Some topics we’re covering;

  • What is a marijuana review?

  • How to judge cannabis both medical and recreationally.

  • It’s not all about the kush.

  • I am lactose intolerant but I toke Cheese strains.

  • Old skool cannabis strains. This is your parent’s or older sibling’s pot.

  • Why sativa is difficult to find and M39 is not.

  • I like my Skunk strains skunk-y and my white strains for fibromyalgia.

  • Why legalization is important to Chronseuring and why Chronseuring is going to make marijuana legal.
