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

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

Not So Fresh Baked

June 25th, 2017

Today I bring you another retail dispensary review!   Let me preface my review by saying, I am someone who suffers from extreme anxiety at times, especially when in new and uncomfortable situations.    In fact, my number one reason for using MJ is because of its positive effects on anxiety.   I share this with you so as you read on, you understand that some of my points are solely my experiences and may not reflect the experience others may have.   Anyway, without further ado… Fresh Baked Dispensary is a place that I’ve known about since it opened.   I went with a friend a few years... Read More

Cannabis’s Positive Impact on Colorado’s Unemployment Rate

June 18th, 2017

We see it every day, more and more people are moving to Colorado.  We see it in the prices of homes and rent, we see it while trying to do a commute that used to take 15 minutes and now takes 45, and we see its positive impacts on the economy.   The truth is Colorado has one of the strongest economies in the country and now with the country’s lowest unemployment rate, what’s not to love about the state?  Especially for stoners! In fact, according to a CNBC report, Colorado has the Nation’s lowest unemployment rate.  Colorado currently holds a jobless rate of 2.3 percent to the... Read More

Finding a Helping Hand on Pearl Street

June 11th, 2017

A few weeks ago, I was having dinner with a couple friends on Pearl Street.   As we were enjoying our meal, we started discussing this blog and some of the dispensaries I should check out – both in Boulder and others in the State.   We decided right then and there, after eating, we’d check out Helping Hand Dispensary which is located on Pearl between 10th and 11th. I’ll be honest, I’ve passed this dispensary a few times and never really given it much thought.  I had never gone in before or looked it up online, so walking in I had no preconceived notions at all.   My first instincts... Read More

Grow Your Career: 3 Cannabis Friendly Career Search Engines

June 4th, 2017

Let’s face it.  In 2017, searching for a good job (in an industry that you’re interested in and that pays the bills) is almost as lonely and desperate as looking for love on Tinder!  While networking, building your skills, and having the knowledge/skills needed are always important aspects when searching for the right job, it’s also important to be looking in the right areas for the best opportunities.   In the digital age, most opportunities are buried in an overload of online sites and career search engines.  Sites like LinkedIn, Craigslist, Monster.com, and Glassdoor are great when... Read More

Take a Trip Down Magnolia Road

May 21st, 2017

Okay, I admit it, I’ve been a little scatterbrained as of late and haven’t really written a review of a cannabis company for a few weeks.  Well fear not, I’m back with one today!   I came across this dispensary while browsing reviews on Weedmaps (one of my most used apps).   What struck me most about the reviews was not only the overall high stars but the consistent mention of quality, affordability, and great service.   These words came up again and again in the reviews, and sure there were some that didn’t paint a great picture (aren’t there always?) but with generally high praise,... Read More

The Problem with Being a Cash-Cow

May 14th, 2017

One night after a long day at work, I sat down with my IPad (and my pipe) and started watching Last Week Tonight with John Oliver segments on YouTube.    As is normally the case, one segment turned into two and then three and then…well you get the point.   Anyway, one of those segments featured the topic of doing business in the cannabis industry, and its main focus was on how federal law makes it rather difficult for companies in states like Colorado and Washington to do business as a “regular” or “normal” business would. The segment focused on several different things but the one... Read More

Stoner Loyalty a Win for Dispensaries

May 7th, 2017

How many of you have a dispensary that even though it may not be the closest or the cheapest, you still go there consistently?   I know I do.  There are many reasons why I visit this dispensary over and over again, including the staff and range of products.  However, I would be lying if I didn’t say the number one reason I visit this dispensary over and over again is because of their loyalty program.   The fact that after buying 8 ounces (at already reduced prices if I visit on a certain day of the week), I get my 9th half off makes me feel special.  That maybe sad, but it does…and I’m... Read More

4/20 is the New Black (Friday)

April 23rd, 2017

We are now in the third year of legal recreational marijuana in the state of Colorado.  That means, this last Thursday, April 20th, better known as 4/20 (aka 420, 4:20) by potheads the world over, celebrated the third year of this special “holiday” in the state that started the legalization party.   The day is celebrated a variety of ways.   There are massive outdoor parties to mark the occasion (you all probably heard of reported headaches experienced at this year’s downtown event).   Gear is freely given out to help promote the day and their brands by local cannabis companies.  ... Read More
