I have this book coming soon, but wondering if any of you already have it and what your thoughts are on it?

Here's what Amazon says:

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.

I'm mainly interested in the Topicals and Edibles sections, if anyone can give their yeys or nays on the content.

Thanks!

Thanks for the post. I'll have to check it out.

If you look for it on Amazon, they will have a "preview" feature. I thought the book was very well done and informative based on the "preview" I read through. Can't wait for it to arrive!

I have it
To be honest about all I've read up on is solvent extracts

Ed is a real expert and when he was arrested he became a hero

San Francisco CA licensed him to be "the clone guy"

Anyways
I think it's a good book but there's never enough info

I picked up a book on juicing raw cannabis

Greedy peeps on Some of the big sites want between 500-900
I found it for 15 bucks

Have a small book on homemade plant tissue culture coming too

Hope you like the book canna

I did find quite a bit of useful information in it, although much of it seems to be generated toward commercial or heavy production.
And, yes..the pictures are very well done. :) On the whole, it's a good book to keep around IMO. :)

That homemade plant tissue book sounds interesting for sure. I'll have to look into that one. Author name?

Have a great day!
