Editorial Reviews

High Times

“The overall effect is delightful. Styled as a primer for absolute beginners, the book’s sections are devoted to how weed makes you feel (both the good and possible bad effects), how it functions as an aphrodisiac (there’s a cheekily placed musk sticker), and a pastiche of cannabis facts. Makes for a fun stoned read and a great gift.”
Green Rush Daily

“A dope book aimed at giving weed fans a full and entertaining overview of all things cannabis.”
The San Francisco Chronicle David Downs

“One of those things that was long overdue.”
The Cannifornian

“It’s easy to succumb to the belief that there’s truly nothing new under the sun. Then along comes The Scratch & Sniff Book of Weed.”
Kindland

“Equal parts fun and informative, you can sniff your way through weed’s turbulent history, which is much preferable to the Wikipedia k-hole route to gaining knowledge.”
Vice

"The Scratch & Sniff Book of Weed is more serious than you think. It’s not just about novelty, it’s about knowledge."
USA Today

"Scratch and sniff book on pot has a sense of humor, but it’s also educational."
Ellen DeGeneres

“Smells like the bottom of Martha Stewart’s bag.”
ThinkGeek

"Get the straight dope: There’s more to know about cannabis than the difference between indica and sativa. Like, 4000 years of cultural, medical, even sexual significance. There are more sticky icky icky facts out there than you can fit into your pipe - and this completely legal book is the perfect gateway into the big, beautiful world of weed.With 20 scratch-&-sniff scents and some trippy illustrations by Ann Pickard, this dope little book covers the scientific explanations of weed and beyond, into some deep corners of cannabis culture. Take a trip through the turbulent reefer timeline, from its first recorded use to its impact on ecommerce (the first thing sold on the Internet: a bag of weed). Learn about famous users (Shakespeare!), and how to hack your buzz if you're feeling too high. Whether you're a connoisseur or simply curious, this book will have something new for you to learn. And we totally get high on knowledge."
