Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better.
His blog at BeyondChronic.com is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others.
This book is a collection of personal experiences with medical marijuana taken in edible form, along with recipes, dosages, and recommendations for using cannabis in cooking.
Effects are important, but so is taste! Old Hippie explains how to get a good balance of both, as well as different methods for extracting the most benefit from your medical marijuana.
This little book is a handy, portable way to counter "official" lies, propaganda and misinformation about Medical Marijuana with the kind of hard-hitting facts that just might change some minds, and perhaps save some lives in the process; maybe even yours, or that of someone you care about.
