Audiobooks and weed were made for each other
An awesome way to get more out of your audiobooks is to enjoy some cannabis before listening. Let the inspiring nature of the plant open your mind to the story as it creates it own images to accompany the narrative. If you’re one of the millions of Americans who has trouble sleeping, a few puffs of a cannabis indica strain and a chapter of a good audiobook before bed might be the answer you’re looking for!
