What People Over 55 Should Know About Marijuana and Healthcare

October 23rd, 2017

Are you over the age of 55?  (If you’re not, share this with your parents or grandparents, please.)  How do you feel about marijuana?  You’ve probably grown up in the post baby boomer generation when the war on drugs included marijuana labeled as the gateway drug. That probably sounds crazy, given the fact that 28 states now have laws in place for legal access to cannabis, while ten states have measures on the 2018 ballot.  While scientific evidence shows the medical benefits of cannabis, beware of political scare tactics that use the word “marijuana” as they are often inaccurate, false,... Read More

What’s missing from Colorado Cannabis labels?

September 25th, 2017

There are three important words missing from Colorado Marijuana labels, both medical and recreational.  It’s so obvious, I can’t believe it is even an oversight of the law. What is the one thing everyone must be aware of before making a strain selection? Indica, sativa, or hybrid, right? In most cases dispensaries separate product by three categories – indica, sativa or hybrid. Unfortunately the container or label does NOT indicate strain type. Why is it important? What’s the difference? First, there are huge differences in strain effects between indica and sativa. Indica... Read More

Cheba Hut: The Munchie Cure for Sure!

If you’ve been on college hill in Boulder, you’ve probably seen the sign that reads:  Cheba Hut “Toasted Subs”.   You don’t have to be a college student to delight in this fresh approach to made to-0rder sandwiches “where the only thing fried is the occasional customer.”  With shops in Colorado, Arizona, California Oregon, New Mexico and Wisconsin, Cheba Hut embraces the local communities in which they serve. Weed-themed Sandwiches:  You’ll have fun just reading the Cheba Hut menu filled with references to the canna-verse vernacular.  Each sandwich... Read More

Meet me on the dark side of the moon.

August 14th, 2017

By now, you’ve probably heard about the upcoming total eclipse taking place on Monday August 21, 2017.  While it’s not unusual to hear about an eclipse taking place somewhere in the world, it is a bit unique that it has been 99 years since the residents of the US have been in the direct path of such a celestial event.  In fact, NASA hosts Eclipse2017 , a website dedicated to the upcoming eclipse with interactive maps, events, education, and even how to host a viewing party. Where to view:  If you live in Boulder, you can expect a partial eclipse of about 93.1 percent, which is still... Read More

Cannabis Craft Night: Color Me High

July 11th, 2017

Feeling stressed?  After you medicate with your favorite strain, sit up straight and create a masterpiece with the simple tools of childhood: crayons and colored pencils. I came across a Leafly article about the adult coloring book craze hitting America.  I love this idea! Instead of an expensive night out on the town, gather your friends around the kitchen table for a “Cannabis Coloring Party.”  Here are a few unique coloring books I found to add to the list: Helpful hint: Don’t forget to search Pinterest for FREE downloadable cannabis coloring pages too! Colorado Cannabis – From... Read More

Hemp, the helpful kin of cannabis.

July 4th, 2017

We indulge in the latest information on cannabis strains, concentrates, and edibles, but we often lose sight of the counter-culture of hemp, the tame and useful cousin of cannabis.  Remember, it’s up to us to educate our peers, parents, and the nay sayers on the benefits and logic of this banned miracle plant. Here are Hemp facts everyone should know and share:   Grown around the world for over 12,000 years, hemp has been used for fiber and food for centuries.  Of course, that all changed in the United States with the  Marijuana Tax Act of 1937.  Look at what we are missing out... Read More

KushMoji: Emotion in Motion

June 26th, 2017

Once upon a time, it was frowned upon to display, wear, draw, or talk about cannabis.  Thanks to the determination of a defining generation, cannabis is becoming a mainstream topic, product, and discussion.  In Colorado, marketing the cannabis culture can be tricky.   Filled with compliance regulations and restrictions, the cannabis industry has to be creative and cunning when it comes to marketing tactics and KushMoji has done just that with a new iPhone app. KushMoji, the official cannabis emoticon library, couples the playful side of weed with the serious side of marketing straight from... Read More

Cannabis Craft Night: How To Make a Thai Stick to Share

June 20th, 2017

What is a Thai Stick?  Think of it as a cannabis version of a shish kabob made with your favorite strains all wrapped up to look like a well rounded cigar.  The Thai Stick became legendary back in the 60’s when soldiers returned from war with stories of powerful weed rolled tight to look like cigars that would burn for hours. With access to recreational cannabis, residents in legal states can revive the art of the legendary Thai Stick at home.  This vintage practice embraces the communal elements that bring people together.  If you are a hands-on person who likes to create works of art to... Read More

Lady Loves Cannabis, But She’s Not Human!

June 12th, 2017

There’s a new girl in the garden and she knows how to eliminate those pesky little aphids.   Who is she? Drum roll please…The Ladybug!  Did you know ladybugs are the organic alternative to chemical pesticides for your garden or grow? You got it, those little red beetles can eat up to 5,000 aphids in their 2-3 year lifespan.   As the name might imply, the ladybug is not a bug at all. In fact, considered a beetle, there is a hard shell under the polka dot red camouflage, to protect the delicate wings.  The ladybug is particularly popular in commercial cannabis cultivation facilities... Read More
