Product Description


"Matt Mernagh is a fantastic writer, a passionate medical cannabis activist, and a knowledgeable marijuana connoisseur [who] teaches people how to identify what kind of marijuana they are buying, what it's going to smell and taste like, and what the effects of smoking it will be." -- S.T. Oner, best-selling author of "Marijuana Chef Cookbook"

About the Author

Matt Mernagh is possibly the most infamous medical marijuana patient in North America - despite not actually being in the medical cannabis program. Since spending two nights in Toronto's Don Jail having been caught cultivating the city's largest balcony grow, Mernagh has been embroiled in a complex legal battle with roots as deep as the Constitution. The ultimate goal is to allow patients to grow their own medicine without restrictive and illogical licenses from the government's broken medical marijuana program. In the meantime, Mernagh has a court ordered exemption from the country's marijuana laws, making him the only person in Canada legally entitled to grow and possess his own weed.

Mernagh has been a writer and activist for 15 years, and was a regular contributor to Toronto papers 'NOW' and 'Exclaim!' as well as Marc Emery's 'Cannabis Culture.' He currently runs an extensive collection of cannabis smoke reports on his website,, and hosts the 'Mernajuana Show' every week from Toronto's Vapor Central.

This book has been a great one to have a glance at every day, I've been learning about strains I've never tried, and some I have tried.
And Matt Mernagh has got his shit together know what he's talking about lol. Seriously knows how to describe a strain in a way that is say almost anyone could understand his descriptions. I reccomend this book to anyone who would like to know a little more about professional strain reviews and so fourth.

Matt Mernagh, long time rock critic and journalist as well as medical and recreational cannabis user and promoter, has hit the bud on the head with this little ditty. Compacted into the size of a wide pocketbook, this guide will help you surf the stoney seas of 150 cannabis strains available today. In a travel format, just watch where you travel to. Each of the plants is reviewed in condensed but poignant rock and rock album review bits, this book will also have you salivating over the gorgeous bud shots, photographed by Mernagh himself. Highly recommended reading! Light em up!

HASH(0xa4e1acfc) out of 5 stars Matt "Marijuana" Mernagh June 11 2013
By Erin Goodwin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Marijuana Smoker's Guidebook is a useful resource of information for all users. The guide demonstrates simple ways to identify common characteristics of cannabis strains without reaching a level of complexity that could be difficult to understand. From the introduction with all the How To's to the detailed unique individual descriptions of many popular buds this book is a wealth of knowledge that readers will find as an asset to their cannabis consumption. Sensi Star is one of my favourites. Maybe Vol.2 could have a scratch and sniff feature :D

HASH(0xa4e1af48) out of 5 stars I keep this book with my meds, now. June 2 2013
By Spectralized - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's a bit difficult deciding where to start praising this book - Matt Mernagh is a proven writer making his book debut. His legacy as a music reviewer shows through his colourful and thorough reviews of 150 of today's cannabis (marijuana) strains in full-colour and vivid detail. The book is not only educational, but highly entertaining to read. Props to the editor and layout artists, as well, because they even thought to include a letter scale (i.e. fan the pages to quickly spot the strain you're seeking!) This is my new favourite cannabis book!

HASH(0xa47a4420) out of 5 stars dank descriptions ! June 1 2013
By Matt - Published on
Format: Paperback
Matt Mernagh knows what he's talking about when it comes to buds. His personal reflections on some beloved strains are bang on to how i would describe them. Some of his reviews have re opened my senses to picking up on subtleties in a strain after re-visiting it. some people like wine. some people like bud. some people like bud an awful lot and should have this book.
great for rolling on too! thanks Matt for the autograph!
