Higher Connections: Humor and Inspiration from a Certified Public Pothead

We rated this book:

Is there more to life than consuming endlessly and wishing to escape work? What if life doesn’t have to be just ordinary and tiring? Eric Right was stuck in an unsatisfactory existence before he found a more fulfilling reality with the help of marijuana and by observing his experience of it. In Higher Connections: Humor and Inspiration from a Certified Public Pothead, Eric and Alexandrea Right document the changes and connections they experienced while under the influence of marijuana and their thoughts about different random subjects, like religion, out-of-body experience, the soul, paranoia, the best age to die, and more. Follow Eric and Alexandrea Right through their fun, otherworldly, and unpredictable journey with marijuana and their intriguingly creative thoughts about different aspects of life in Higher Connections.

I have been educated! As someone who used to regard marijuana as a waste of time, Higher Connections showed me that it can actually make life more enjoyable. I couldn’t stop reading the captivating stories about family, empathy, healing, and building connections. Also, I found it amazing that Eric, who is not exactly someone you would call empathetic in his natural state, became noticeably more empathetic with marijuana—to the point that he expressed feeling empathy for a stranger who talked about his struggles.

Many of the stories and insights are told from two different POVs—Eric’s and Alexandrea’s—which, somehow, makes the story feel more genuine and easier to understand. The authors’ carefree, chatty writing style is quite enjoyable and easy to read. I liked that Eric sometimes chips in what he’s doing while he’s writing about a particular topic.

The book inspired me to think about several ideas and possibilities that I never considered before. Like Eric, I am now wondering if leaders would make better, more humane decisions if they took marijuana before a major world conference. Who says life has to be serious and mainly about working towards the next big achievement?

Eric and Alexandrea show us that life can be more meaningful when we choose to live in the moment. And in their case, marijuana proves to be a great way to get there. Scientists and researchers who wish to be an important part of the next phase of human consciousness should take the insightful accounts and ideas in this book seriously. And if you simply wish to discover a deeper and more exciting way to connect with the world around you, you will learn a lot from their detailed recommendations and stories about embarking on a trip with marijuana. Even skeptics of marijuana will turn believers when they read the book. I certainly did!
