I don’t know about you, but there is something wonderfully satisfying about cracking open a new magazine- exploring the articles, meandering through the pictures, scoffing at the ads. Personally, I prefer the weight of a printed version in my hand. It gives me something tangible to enjoy curled up on the couch on a lazy Sunday. The sound of the pages flipping is innately satisfying and the tactile engagement really pulls me into the articles. It’s the perfect Sunday Funday activity if you ask me. Given this old-fashioned obsession with printed reading material, it should come as no surprise that I would have to track down the most enjoyable cannabis magazines a stoner can find and share them with you all right here! Here are five cannabis magazines to satisfy your periodical obsession:
