CBD as a treatment for arthritis and chronic pain

August 7th, 2018

With CBD known for helping to reduce pain and inflammation, many seniors are wondering whether this non-psychoactive compound could help to relieve symptoms of arthritis. And there are now a few scientific studies which suggests that it can. But just what is CBD, how can be it used to manage arthritis, and are there any side effects to be wary of? We’ll answer all of that and more in this post. Hemp-based CBD products are sold all over the United States, and because of the low THC content, they aren’t subjected to prohibition like cannabis. While CBD is just one compound of more than 400 in... Read More

Good People Smoke Weed Too

May 9th, 2017

Recently we had our new Attorney General tell us that “good people don’t smoke weed”. That was an ignorant statement made by the man put in charge of this country’s legal affairs and law enforcement. Are you one of these “people”? I am! But…I am a law-abiding citizen, I pay my taxes, I am friendly with my neighbors, and I do not cut people off in traffic, intentionally. I thought I was a pretty decent guy? Half of this country has already updated their laws to legalize marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes. According to two Gallup polls from 2016, over sixty percent of... Read More

What Is Your Favorite Strain?

April 25th, 2017

I am going to be honest with you, I really like weed. It smells nice, it tastes good, and its effects are enjoyable too. It is so lovely when you are not expecting it and you get hit with the aroma of cannabis.  When I walk into work in the mornings all I can smell are the grow facilities. The HVAC fans must kick on around the time I arrive because my walk into work from the parking lot every morning is a feast for my senses. I also love the way weed tastes, every strain has such a unique flavor. All cannabis is my favorite, I may prefer this strain over that strain but if you ever catch me saying... Read More

Consider The Hybrid

April 11th, 2017

It is quite overwhelming to visit a cannabis dispensary for the first time. Most cannabis enthusiasts have not seen fifteen different options for weed in one place before. There is a little sensory overload happening and more often than not they are stumped as to what to try, or even look at, first. I typically start with describing the main differences in the cannabis plant itself. Sativa, indica and hybrid are what we have. The classifications of indica and sativa have been around since the 18th century. The farther away a cannabis plant naturally grows from the equator the more indica it will... Read More

All Cannabinoids Are Not Considered Equal

April 4th, 2017

One question I get from customers on a daily basis is, “what has the highest THC?” That question bothers me because nobody buys other things based on the highest potency offered. People do not go to the liquor store every time and ask for Everclear. By only looking at the options for the highest in THC customers limit themselves to very few products, and just because something has the highest THC does not necessarily make it the best option. Cannabis has different levels of potency throughout its life. When a plant is harvested, it can have one level of potency. Then, it can have another potency... Read More

I Would Like One Marijuana Please

March 7th, 2017

The best way to enjoy any weed shop experience is to have an open mind, ask questions, and bring cash. People are not all created equal when it comes to the effects of this stuff. Even the most experienced cannabis user should heed the advice of the budtender who is helping them. It is like those old heads say, this stuff is way stronger than it used to be. Listen to the recommendations of your friendly budtender, they are there to help. Speaking with a budtender can save you hours of research on the internet and can be valuable for someone who is new to cannabis. You probably know the feeling... Read More

So, You Want To Be A Budtender?

February 28th, 2017

I have not always been too fond of the title budtender, but I always refer to myself as one. I think the person who specializes in all things cannabis, specifically pairing the right strain with the right person ought to have a stronger title. Cannacierge maybe? Budtender feels like an obvious choice, like it was the first suggestion and nobody thought of anything after, but people know exactly what you mean when you say budtender so we will go with it. Weedologist? Ganja Valet? I consider this position to be more of a cannabis pharmacist and less of a bartender. Cannabist? Wait, I think that is... Read More

Your Weed Might Weigh More

February 21st, 2017

I would like to start off my first assignment with a kind suggestion, be polite to your budtender. You never know, it might make that bag a little heavier. We are nice people, we have similar interests as you, we are stoked to live in Colorado, and we have a cool job so finding us in a good mood is common. We work in an industry where our customers bring in tons of positive energy and are happy to spend their money, where else do you find that? We enjoy talking to new people about the subtle differences in cannabis, the possibilities of cannabidiol (CBD), and we would love for you to ask every... Read More
