Cannabis enthusiasts, are you sick of going to White Castle? Well, with the Juniper Books Cannabis Book Set there’s absolutely no need to venture farther than your living room—this comprehensive collection of sophisticated, weed-infused publications will keep your brain occupied and, with the help of Bong Appétit, keep your munchies at bay.
The set is wrapped in an original Juniper Books design inspired by Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management, a classic work on etiquette, cooking, and wellness from 1861. But don't be fooled by the vintage inspiration, these books are modern, informative, and engaging.
The set includes five books, each covering a different aspect of cannabis culture:
Drawing from the classic Emily Post guides, Higher Etiquette takes a modern spin on cannabis culture, covering everything from how and when to consume to hosting cannabis-infused dinner parties. As the stigma around marijuana fades, Post's guide becomes increasingly relevant for both casual and consistent consumers. Importantly, Higher Etiquette discusses the importance of diversity and inclusion in the cannabis industry and highlights organizations working to promote equity, such as Supernova Women and Cannaclusive.

From french-bread pizza to raspberry and peach pie, these recipes (not just their secret ingredient) will make you hungry for more. What’s more, instead of simply listing the ingredients, Bong Appétit goes into the science of creating weed butter, so even the most novice consumer can take part in the fun.
With cannabis legalization expanding across the United States, there's no better time to educate yourself about the history, culture, and science behind this plant. However, it's important to acknowledge that the legal cannabis industry is plagued by systemic racism, as Black people are disproportionately arrested for cannabis-related offenses. Additionally, while the industry has grown tremendously in recent years, it remains dominated by white executives and investors, with few opportunities for entrepreneurs of color to participate. As you explore the world of cannabis through the Juniper Books Cannabis Book Set, it's crucial to also consider ways to support equity and justice in the cannabis industry, such as advocating for expungement of past cannabis-related convictions, supporting Black-owned cannabis businesses, and demanding that the industry prioritize diversity and inclusion!
Whether you're looking to expand your knowledge or simply enjoy a fun, stoned read, the Juniper Books Cannabis Book Set is a must-have addition to your collection. Elevate your cannabis experience to new heights this 04/20 and remember that the best way to celebrate is to stay curious, stay informed, and stay safe.
