For the NooB to Cannabis Strains May 31 2012
By Breezy Kiefair - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are new to the different varieties (strains) of cannabis and new to the families (cannabis sativa and cannabis indica are the main ones), then this book by green candy press is great for you.

( [...] )

It is rather commercial with many links to seedbanks printed and source images from their websites. that being said, for a beginner's education, its a nice read.

If you are a experienced grower/toker/strain connoisseur, don't waste your time unless you want some budporn for guests on the coffee table.

Best guide on Sativas anywhere! March 7 2012
By Matthew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Just got this book in - WOW! About time someone puts out a thorough book like this. It's not like the other books that are obvious paid marketting campaigns, this book actually gets info about strains for us strain nerds to us. I can already see sooo many strains I need to get my hands on - and the guide tells you how to get ahold of the breeder's website too! 100 different breeders?! what more could you ask for. So skip other books put out by the breeders to toot their own horns, get this and have a wide unbiased selection from the world's best breeders. Strains like Strawberry Creme, Blue Geez, Black Maui...wow... mouthwatering! Another hit from Green Candy Press 0 I hope more are soon to follow!

New Sativa Strains! June 8 2012
By super silver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As stated in a previous review the reviewer bought this book along with it's sibling book "Cannabis Indica, The Essential Guide to the Worlds Finest Marijuana Strains". These books are gems to behold and offer different genetics that are a bit more obscure than the typical mass produced strains.

The reader will be quite used to the format of the book if they have purchased any other "Bud Books" in the past. Each page has a description of the strain coupled with a fantastic photo on the opposite side. These photos are crystal clear and by crystal the reviewer means that the Trichomes seem to burst forward from the page!

The introduction contains some interesting material as far as the origin of the sativa genetics as well as their growth patterns. This description is quite complex and scientific including words such as "cellular meiosis" and other technical data. This may not appeal to all readers but the reviewer feels that this is important knowledge to grasp since the genetics of the plant are what makes it was it is. Full understanding of the background can help in the formation of new strains through breeding which may target more afflictions in the medical cannabis community. If the reader is not looking for this type of information there is no cause for alarm as the descriptions of the strains are pretty straight forward and very descriptive.

These descriptions are often quite involved and impart a very clear mental image of what to expect from color, scent, effect, and taste. THC content is also clearly displayed for the medical user to judge strength. This coupled with a general indoor and outdoor height can make any decisions that much easier. For example, a typical description of effect would be like this one taken from Sonoma Sunrise, "The high is luxuriously long lasting and relaxes the whole body, making it an excellent strain for medical users with physical pain or discomfort".

Taste and scent descriptions can be expected as follows, taken from Guanabana: "The taste, which gives the strain its name, is very fruity with a sour tang; imagine a mix of strawberry and pineapple with a hint of apple and you're almost there".

As stated previously, accurate height descriptions are given but there is also a notation for many of the strains as to how many days of flowering one can expect when the plant is mature enough to harvest it's medicine. This is typical of many "Bud Books" but what is refreshing is that many of these Sativa strains are surprisingly fast to reach maturity. In the case of the above Guanabana the flowering time is a simple 50 days.

It is important to remember that many of the Sativas in this book (and the Indicas in the sibling book) are actually hybrids that have dominating tendencies to the respective name of the book. There are land race genetics described as well, such as Waipi'o Hapa, a pure landrace Hawaiian strain but if a book of this level were to be printed using only pure strains it would be very thin indeed. Breeding of the plant over several generations has produced many strains of merit and using Indica genetics has toned down the size of some strains as well as dramatically reduced flowering times.

The reviewer feels it is important to repeat what was wrote in his Indica review and that is to expect to use a little communication and adventure when sourcing the strains from this book. There are several breeders from around the world and they are specializing in the few strains they have created. The reader may have to contact them directly after running their original email text through a free online translator such as Babylon. The reviewer feels this makes the whole process much more exciting than going to a "click and ship" online super seed bank offering the same genetics that everyone else has. This is the only time one can actually obtain medicine of an exotic nature!

Hopefully this review will help the reader in their decision to buy this book or not. It is not for a person without ambition or sense of wonder. One will feel like the early cannabis pioneer when trying to source these genetics, but thanks to the internet it will not actually involve traveling to the exotic locals, rather writing just a few emails!

Edit: Not every strain in the book takes work to obtain. The reader will find some common breeders as well. Sweet Seeds, Ace Seeds, and World Of Seeds are common and easily located on the web.
