April Book of the Month
by Dee Dussault
It's clear that both yoga and cannabis offer a ridiculous number of health benefits, even for people who aren't drawn to the spiritual aspects.
This book was recommended to me by a fellow yogi stoner and I'm surprised I hadn't found it sooner, but I'm grateful it was brought to my attention. After reading through this book it was clear to me that Dee isn't one sided. In fact, in the intro she describes her very first experience with cannabis being mildly traumatic, growing up in a time when D. A. R. E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) taught kids weed was basically evil, and going through the painful learning process to fully understand how to properly consume cannabis in a way that served her personally.
What I really liked about this book is that it was rather easy to read, more of a conversation than a study guide. However, there are several fun exercises and guides that are sure to enhance your experience with cannabis and yoga. With out being too "spiritual" she describes how to improve the quality of life through consumption of both.
This book has everything that you'd want to know on how to incorporate cannabis, not only into your yoga practice, but into your entire life. From the history of Cannabis and Yoga, to Intention Setting, to Mary Jane Meditations, this book will definitely be something you come back to over and over again.
