<DIV>Announcing the completely revised and updated edition of <I>The Wine Bible</I>, the perennial bestselling wine book praised as <I>“The most informative and entertaining book I’ve ever seen on the subject”</I> (Danny Meyer), <I>“A guide that has all the answers” </I>(Bobby Flay), <I>“Astounding”</I> (Thomas Keller), and <I>“A magnificent masterpiece of wine writing”</I> (Kevin Zraly).<BR /><BR /> Like a lively course from an expert teacher, <I>The Wine Bible</I> grounds the reader deeply in the fundamentals while layering on informative asides, tips, amusing anecdotes, definitions, glossaries, photos (all new for this edition), maps, labels, and recommended bottles. Karen MacNeil’s information comes directly through primary research; for this second edition she has tasted more than 10,000 wines and visited dozens of wine regions around the world. New to the book are wines of China, Japan, Mexico, and Slovenia. And through it all the reader becomes ever more informed—and, because of the author’s unique voice, always entertained: “In great years Pétrus is ravishing, elegant, and rich—Ingrid Bergman in red satin.” Or, describing a Riesling: “A laser beam. A sheet of ice. A great crackling bolt of lightning.”<BR />  </DIV>

Nearly everyone is now aware that Marijuana has significant medical value. <br />What most do not realize is that different strains have profoundly different effects – <br />that this or that strain may be remarkable at healing arthritis, other strains will do little or nothing for.<br />Indeed, many conditions will actually be exacerbated by some strains! <br />For instance, most people think, “Pot makes you hungry” – and while a majority of strains <br />are excellent for people needing to gain weight, there are actually several strains that SURPRESS <br />appetite! (They are excellent for weight loss). Another blatant example is anxiety – while there are <br />many strains that dramatically decrease anxiety, there are many, many others that worsen it! <br />This is true down the line with most conditions. <br />This work represents over two years of research reading nearly every book on the subject of <br />Medical Marijuana and visiting hundreds of on-line sites on the topic. The largest number of <br />conditions I ever found listed in once cite was 30! This book lists over 120 Conditions cross<br />referenced with over 500 different Strains. <br />With each strain, to the extent the information is available ANYWHERE you are informed of its <br />type (Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica – or in the case of hybrids {most strains are hybrids of <br />the two} the percentage of each, the THC%, the CBD%, the parent strains, the original breeder, <br />the taste, smell, any specific growing needs and characteristics, the flowering time (from 28 days <br />from seed to harvest to up to 20 weeks of flowering (AFTER initial growth) and the expected bud <br />weight at harvest (38 grams to over 9 Kilograms). <br />Whether you have Arthritis, Migraines, Hyperhidrosis, Cancer (and all the problems with chemo.), <br />PTSD or any one of the over 120 conditions listed (Including over 60 strains for sexual arousal alone) <br />this is a MUST HAVE BOOK!<br />Additionally, if you are considering growing, this is essential and, again, a must have<br />Book.<br />
