The richness of marijuana culture lies at least partially in the fact that it has thousands of unique artifacts which can be found nowhere else. And what’s even better, the flowering of cannabis creativity which exploded with the hippie movement in the 1960s shows no signs of abating; “explosive growth” would be a more apropos term.

Cannabis Cards, based in Mendocino, California, are very collectable examples of this culture. The purpose of the cards is to honor remarkable people associated with marijuana who have influenced society in some important way, be it as medicine, sacrament, social glue, cultural engine or creative spark.

Included are revolutionaries, artists, musicians, activists, athletes, comedians, presidents and queens; using colorful original portraits and biographical information, Cannabis Cards inspire as they inform. Each trading card paints a picture and tells a story of the person, the historical period and their legacy.

New cards are periodically added to the growing collection; the latest addition is a Cheech & Chong card featuring the counterculture comedy legends.

The cards, each 2.5″ wide x 3.5″ tall, highlight a gallery of marijuana legends whose influence has helped shape the world. They constitute the “First Edition” of Encycloweedia, which should be released soon, according to the publishers.

Each color portrait is original, as seen through the eyes of illustrator Frederick Sternkopf, also known as Dr. Doo. Sternkopf’s art has a certain propensity for caricature; don’t expect flattering likenesses of legends such as Queen Victoria, Gertrude Stein, Lenny Bruce, and Jerry Garcia, but do expect to be entertained.

Major cultural influences throughout history, from Abe Lincoln to Bob Marley, are included. Text and editing are by counterculture legend Pebbles Trippet and the graphic art is by Ralf Laguna.
