Why I Do Not Smoke Or Vape, The Magic Butter Machine And A Perfect Cup Of Coffee

February 15th, 2024

I smoked for decades. Since 1966 and then since 1975 in Boulder. I got my education in the East, and then came West. My delivery systems ranged from joints and bongs, to a  coconut water pipe with the farmer of Negil on Xmas Eve some decades ago, and more. Hotels all come with rolling papers if you get stuck. The Gideon’s Bible has several blank pages in each volume, and it works fine. Then I read the list of the 100 plus chemicals that were added to my inhale by the combustion of the flower. While vaping was convenient, I had ongoing concerns. First, the cartridges, in a legal state (assuming... Read More

February 13th, 2024

You CAN buy marijuana at a dispensary in Boulder, as long as you are old enough and have not exceeded your daily purchase limit.

Illegal Activity: Discussing illegal activities, including but not limited to, the resale or redistribution of cannabis products purchased in Bud Tender conversations... Read More

What Are You Dankful for This Year?

November 29th, 2017

This article may come at you a little late this year, being that Thanksgiving was last week, but it is never too late to be thankful, or dankful this season. I normally like to use this column as an outlet to bemoan about something that most people would bend over backward for. It can be fun to sit back and air my grievances about the weed industry, after all, it is the landscape I see every day. Fortunately, the industry I work in is hot right now, so it affords me this outlet. No grievances today though, just love. I am dankful for all the amazing growers out there. Indoor farmers and outdoor... Read More

The Cannabegrateful Yoga Challenge

November 25th, 2017

I hope everyone had a terrific Thanksgiving. With it being a time when we all reflect on what we’re thankful for, it feels fitting to give some thanks of my own, and to share about my recent experience in The Cannabegrateful Yoga Challange. This Instagram challenge, hosted by Greenlove Denver and Canna_Sam, started on November 13th and lasted for 7 days. Each day there was a specific yoga pose, but the challenge was more than just taking a photo of your practice. The challenge also consisted of digging deeper to share something we were grateful for each day. The yoga pose line up: Day 1- seated... Read More

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!

August 28th, 2017

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

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

Cannabis Couriers and You

July 9th, 2017

On Monday, Colorado State Lawmakers passed a measure to create a new type of cannabis licenses, one for a state-wide marijuana “transporter” or courier services.   Since passing the measure (currently awaiting the Governor’s signature), the bill has been making its way around the news circuits, especially those that are cannabis inclined.  Most of these articles have focused on the fact that this new licenses will allow for marijuana transporters to function within their own class of licensing.   Prior to this measure passing, there were 12 marijuana couriers in Colorado that functioned... Read More
