“In The Cannabis Apothecary, author Laurie Wolf and daughter-in-law Mary Wolf of the award-winning edibles company Laurie + MaryJane give readers an easy-to-digest introduction into how cannabis can be used, in short, to feel better. Complete with everything from information about its medicinal uses to sections on strains, growing and even bath soak recipes, it’s an all-encompassing look at the multiple at-home uses of the cannabis plant with a feminine touch.
The 129-page book also includes a generous selection of recipes and several ways to enhance existing practices such as yoga and massage.
