I was very disappointed with this book and found it painful to read. I gritted my teeth and cringed my way through it.
The writing is terrible and the content is inflated with unnecessarily large print and useless photographs. Do you really need to see a picture of a bottle of rubbing alcohol or a cutting board to know what they look like?
The grammar and punctuation are dismal. The writing is awkward and childish. It reminds me of instructions that have clearly been translated into English by someone whose first language is not English: “CBD makes up 40% of cannabis extract, and it provides a strong example of therapeutic effects.”
There are random capitalizations : “If you are into Skin and beauty like I am, then I am sure you have noticed a few Hemp oil infused beauty products …” This is on the back cover!
There are partial sentences: “As using such highly flammable solvent can destroy some of the therapeutic plant waxes and decrease the medicinal value of the CBD oil.”
There is missing text: “Once you read the procedure and watch the video, you will know why I say it is simple and easy to” Easy to what?
I don’t understand why other people have given this book good reviews and I don’t understand how this book got published in this condition.
I was looking for a book that provided in-depth, intelligent discussion about how to make CBD-infused oil (i.e coconut oil) from my own legally grown cannabis, and how to best incorporate this oil into products (salves and tinctures) to maximize its medicinal benefits. This book did not do that.
It does contain recipes for making various body and hair products containing CBD oil with a heavy concentration on soap. If you want to make soap by buying CBD oil and mixing it with ready-made melt-and-pour soap solution (and maybe adding some glitter and plastic flowers) and you can get past the atrocious writing, then this book is fine for you.
Otherwise, this is an embarrassingly badly written fluff book that lacks substance and badly needs a competent editor.
