I just received my copy of Heart of Dankness and I've devoured it. You have to read this book if you want to understand the future of medical and recreational cannabis. Heart of Dankness is much more than a stoners explorations and reflections about finding great pot, its the story about our evolving understanding of the real medical and aesthetic value of cannabis. Personally I liked Chapter 14 the best, the "He blinded me with Science" chapter that features the Cornerstone Research Collective. In the last paragraph of that chapter, Michael Backes, CRC's then-budtender, refers to the Holy Grail of pot as having "..an intensely clear effect. Just Perfect. You have the high-functioning buzz that took the edge off everything and a lingering tickle of joy. Its like a pre-pschedelic tickle. That's what I'm looking for, and I'll find it."...which he plans to do with a mix of science and Mother Terese like devotion to the "cause."...and I hope learn about it when he does find it ;-) BUY THIS BOOK...you'll be glad you did!
