As someone who has studied cannabis quite deeply, I have found this book to be quite useful for what it is - a field guide.I came across this book at B&N and I'm glad I saw it in person, because this book's value lies in the absolutely amazing photos.The information is basic and sparse, but serves as a starting point. Each strain is listed with info on:- Type (Sativa/Indica/Hybrid)- Lineage (Names parents)- Smell/Taste (Your typical and repetitive adjectives, but that's a limitation of language more than anything)- Common Effects (Again, typical and repetitive but with room for expansion here...)- Top Medicinal Uses ("Stress" is listed on almost every strain...but there is some variation typically correlated with the S:I ratio)- Similar Strains (This is pretty cool! Though I wish they said what made each similar rather than leaving it so open ended)What the author was going for here was a really clean, easy to reference, quick guide on cannabis strains. They wanted a single format to use for every entry - left page of info and right page photo. What this created was a beautiful, scientific feeling field guide which serves well for quick comparisons and "name checks" as well as a great book to flip through.I like to look at any herb that makes it out this way with a name attached, search the strain in this convenient alphabetical and relatively comprehensive field guide, and try to tell if the herb really is what they claim it to be. Obviously, there are many phenotypes within each strain, and with only one photo of each strain, it is impossible to include them all.
