Art can be confusing. Luckily, there’s marijuana. This book pairs fifty classic works from all around the world with unique cannabis recommendations.
High Art gives you answers to questions that have long plagued art history students, such as Is there an edible that will help me understand Cubism? (Yes!) Can a cannabis strain connect me more deeply to late-period Van Gogh? (Of course!) And Should I be intimidated by the work of William Blake? (Very much so—but cannabis extracts can help.)
To get in touch with your inner self while viewing Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait with a Straw Hat, toke on some of Gravita’s Red-Headed Stranger and really feel the brush strokes wash over you. Or while viewing Henri Rousseau’s 1910 Tropical Forest with Monkeys, you might smoke some mild Purple Monkey followed by a snack of THC-infused dried fruits for a body float that will allow you to connect with your primitive nature.
So whether you know a lot about art and nothing about cannabis or a lot about cannabis and nothing about art, it’s high time you expanded your mind.
