(From the original Rolling Stone review in 1974) Hundreds of thousands of people have become experts in the most joyful of horticultural pursuits thanks to Bill Drake's classic and indispensible "Cultivators Handbook of Marijuana." Chances are that no matter who is growing it or where they are growing it, Bill Drake not only told them how - but told them why they should go to the bother. And, if that wasn't enough, he made the same vast audience sophisticated in Cannabis lore through that dazzling compendium of knowledge - the first and still the best coffeetable dope book - "The Connoisseur's Handbook of Marjiuana." Now with the International Cultivators Handbook, the seeds are flung much much further in both time and space. Drawing from his great respect for the ancient traditions surrounding these three great therapeutic medicinal plants, Bill Drake offers the reader broad, bold insights into worldwide traditional cultivation practices and medicinal uses of Coca, Opium and Hashish that they will find nowhere else.

Native Americans believe that Tobacco is one of the most sacred gifts of the Great Spirit to his People, along with corn, beans and squash. I also believe that tobacco is a great gift of the great spirit of the natural world, and I want people who enjoy tobacco to be able to liberate themselves from the thrall of the multinational so-called "Tobacco companies," whose products really have nothing to do with the sacred herb and are nothing more than industrialized poison. Now I'm sharing my years of experience raising natural Tobacco in what I hope is a useful, interesting and thoughtful book - The Cultivators Handbook of Natural Tobacco. As I hope you'll come to see, the ultimate aim of this book is to make it possible for smokers to no longer be enslaved to criminal corporations for their personal supply of pure, natural tobaccos. In addition to sharing my own growing experience, I've reached far into the past to find tobacco growing books written by masters of the subject, from Cuba to the Philippines, from America to Brazil. In an all-new Section Two I've gathered together the best advice from these old-time masters regarding every aspect of Tobacco cultivation, from which varieties grow best in which soils and environments, to the carefully guarded secrets of curing and flavoring the primo leaves of this unusual plant. Also, I'll give you an internet address where you can download all of these original, invaluable tobacco resources for free in PDF format for easy reading on your computer or any reading device.

Truly global in scope and with contributions from leading researchers around the world, The Handbook of Cannabis is the definitive resource on this fascinating drug. Combining scientific perspectives and clinical applications, it covers a vast array of topics, from why over the centuries cannabis has been used as a medicine, through the regulations facing those wishing to self-administer cannabis or provide cannabis-based medicines, to the chemical structure of its many constituents and the rapidly growing group of synthetic cannabinoids that are currently being used for 'legal highs'. With each chapter written by a group of one or more internationally recognised subject experts, it provides academics and researchers with authoritative scientific material on the main pharmacological actions and their effects, as well as their pharmacokinetics, metabolism, and forensic detection. In addition it also examines the complex morphology, cultivation, harvesting, and processing of cannabis and the ways in which the plant's chemical composition can be controlled. As well as offering a raft of scientific information there is extensive coverage of cannabinoid-based medicines. Helping readers to identify and evaluate their benefits, chapters explore pharmacological actions and the effects that seem to underlie approved therapeutic uses, how they are currently used to treat certain disorders, and the ever-growing number of wide-ranging potential clinical applications. There is also coverage of both the legal and illegal sources of cannabis, including 'coffee shops' and 'cannabis dispensaries'. The complex issue of 'recreational cannabis' is also tackled. The sought-after and adverse psychological and non-psychological effects are described and discussions are included on how some adverse effects can be lessened by at least one constituent of cannabis, and that it might be possible to reduce the harm that cannabis does to some by changing current regulatory policies. The Handbook of Cannabis is a one-stop reference; essential reading for all clinicians, pharmacologists, psychologists, and psychiatrists interested in this drug, as well as those working in the field of public health.

Cultural Dimensions of Expatriate Life in South Korea

Author: Bill Drake

Publisher: CreateSpace

ISBN: 9781453834282

Category: Travel

Page: 142

View: 2593

"Cultural Dimensions - Korea" was written for the dedicated traveler, professional or business person, and serious expatriate who wants to hit the ground running in this complex cultural environment. This is not a book about manners and etiquette - rather, it focuses on what any foreigner needs to know about how their own cultural values and perspectives are likely to interact with the values and perspectives of their Korean counterparts, co-workers, and friends. Mastering the contents of this book will propel you a long way toward the goal of being able to integrate yourself as seamlessly as possible into the social and business life of South Korea. Tim Leffel, a well-known travel writer has this to say about 'Cultural Dimensions - Korea" "I checked this one out first because I spent 14 months there as an English teacher in the late 1990s. To say it was a struggle sometimes from a cultural standpoint is putting it mildly. Some expats couldn't deal at all and they bailed out. Others coped by doing nothing but working and hanging out in expat bars, avoiding contact with most locals. Others just got bitter and were a royal pain to be around. The easiest course is to go with the flow, and this guide has plenty of advice on how to do that. I found the information throughout to be spot-on and consistent with my experiences there. I wish I'd had this in hand before I moved there and started working." http: //travel.booklocker.com/tag/expatriate-guides/
