Stoner Product Endorsements

April 28th, 2015

This post I’d like to take some time to highlight a few products currently available on the recreational market that I personally endorse and use. With the amount of products ready for purchase out in this relatively new market, often it is hard to distinguish which products are worth the asking price, particularly when it comes to things like vaporizers and hash oil pens. In this blog I will do my best to provide a relatively unbiased account of products that I both love and despise, and the reasons why. So lets dive right in.

Take a Mature Stance this 4/20

April 14th, 2015

Everyone knows April 20th as the stoner holiday. 4/20 will probably always be known in America as the day that marijuana die-hards skip work or class and conglomerate to roast as much herb as humanly possible. Sure, it’s great to get out and support a cause that has been revolutionizing not only our state but also the nation. It’s wonderful to get together with friends and tons of new people you may have never met, united by giant joints and new fangled smoking contraptions the world has yet to see. But amidst the general sense of revelry that looms on the near horizon, I would love to tell... Read More

The World of Cannabis Concentrates

April 7th, 2015

(A picture of BHO “shatter”) In the constantly changing cannabis market, often it is difficult to keep up with new trends and changes in how the plant can be consumed. One cannabis niche that has existed for many years yet does not receive a lot of positive attention is concentrates. Most people think of Butane Hash Oil and how every few weeks we see a news story about some young people blowing up their rental home trying to make this stuff. But the reality is, when the proper scientific techniques and equipment are used, there is very little potential for the dangerous explosions the... Read More

Cannabis and Sustainability 2: The Many Faces of Industrial Hemp

April 1st, 2015

(Photo: a field of wild hemp) For the second part of this series about cannabis and sustainability, I think it is important to take a look at the value of hemp in the realm of industrial materials. Everyone has perhaps seen a ball of hemp rope made into a macramé necklace, but more and more frequently we are seeing hemp clothing, paper products, and even shelled hemp seeds at health food stores. The health benefits of cannabis and hemp have been known for thousands of years, despite a long period of misconception and cultural suppression. But even more than the health nut stuff, the textile value... Read More

Cannabis and Sustainability: Part One, Healthcare

March 24th, 2015

One little known fact about hemp and cannabis is that the absolute best medicinal aspects come from derivatives of the raw plant. Much like the wheat-grass trend that swept America in the 90’s, juicing and drinking raw cannabis or hemp can provide a long list of vitamins and important cannabinoids to support immune system function. It’s no scientific secret that plants and seeds of all varieties support life and the overall functioning of healthy cells.   The problem with the American diet is the absolutely vast number of chemicals and synthetics used to make our food look, smell or taste... Read More

A Different Green for St. Patty’s this Year

March 17th, 2015

It seems perfectly pertinent on this St. Patrick’s day – as millions of Americans are already in the process of shirking all adult responsibility and becoming intolerably drunk – to point out the significant differences in today’s choice of recreationally available substances. As of 2012, more than 135 million (52.1%) of American’s over age 12 reported that they drink alcohol. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good Craft Lager or Double Chocolate Stout as much as the next full blooded Irishman. However I have, in my short time on earth, seen friends with serious... Read More

Time to End a War on the Drugs that can Heal our Warriors

March 10th, 2015

Photo Credit: Now I realize in advance that this post may shake the tree of those firmly nested in their political views, but this is a topic that is gaining increasing attention and rightfully so. Having grown up for 24 years in one of the most heavily military influenced states in the US, I feel like I have a decent insight into the issues affecting not only soldiers, but also the places they call home. Some of the best strains I have ever smoked supposedly came back from overseas smuggled as seeds in the pockets of Navy seals, though no one would ever admit... Read More

Reefer Refund, for Real?

March 3rd, 2015

So the big joke is, everyone might be getting a refund check because of the high excise tax on Marijuana in Colorado this past fiscal year. Whether or not we’ll ever see this money remains to be seen. One thing we can see, is that the old picture of weed, guns, and tons of cash is slowly being replaced by a picture of weed, W2’s, and still tons of cash.                                                                                   But before we get to the good stuff, I’d like to introduce myself and let you know why I’m a trustworthy... Read More
