Confessions of A Movie-Loving Budtender

January 10th, 2018

The weather got a little nasty again this week. The lovely spring that we had been enjoying took a break so that winter could make one last appearance, hopefully. I got used to the early warm weather, and my days spent mountain biking, hiking, and gardening reverted back to sitting inside and watching it snow some more. I know Colorado gets odd weather but a two- foot storm in late May is lame. However, as the saying goes, “we have two seasons in Colorado, winter and July” am I right? So, if we must be indoors, why not spend that time being entertained and watching some good flicks? My first... 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

Chiefton Supply Co.

November 21st, 2017

As an aging weed smoker, I cannot continue to wear clothes that have giant weed leaves on them. Like all fading trends, I need to retire my Wu Wear and Seedless clothing at some point for something that is a little more current. Plus, I am an adult; and as the weed industry matures so must the clothing that goes with it. A brand of cannabis-inspired clothing called Chiefton is here to fill that void. Chiefton Supply Co. is a cannabis-inspired clothing company that represents the culture while not being in your face about things. They allow cannabis users the opportunity to represent the industry... Read More

Cannabis Is Not A Partisan Issue

November 14th, 2017

The hot topic up at the bud bar this week did not involve the most fire strain of weed, nor was it about the best new edible on the shelf. It was not about what state would be going legal next or what concentrate process created the most potent dab. It was about a Gallup poll that showed marijuana legalization is currently supported by more Republicans than ever. Why should this surprise anyone? Marijuana is not mentioned in the Constitution and it is not mentioned in the Bible. Marijuana does not hurt or go against any of our cultural values. Marijuana has nothing to do with abortion and marijuana... Read More

Been Dabbin’ With the Dipper!

November 8th, 2017

Concentrates are so expensive, and I would like to find a way to dab it and not lose a portion of it on my fingers, or have it run down the side of my vaporizer pen. I would like a device that allows me to take a clean dose of my powerful medicine and I would like it to consistently work just as well as it did the first time. After years of dealing with low-end products that do not last more than a few months and a few gimmicks, I am ready for a little ease. Enter the Dipper by Dipstick Vapes. Although the market these days is flooded with devices for dabbing, rarely does one find a device that... Read More

Weed Memories Never Fade Away

August 15th, 2017

Man, you remember that one time we got high? Yeah…kinda. One of the things I really enjoy about being a budtender is hearing people’s story’s. If I am helping someone who is in the moment I like to sit back and listen. This is a main function a budtenders job, we listen. Who knows maybe there will be some good information in there? People do not so much come in to hear our stories, although they do ask, it is more about them. Hanging out in a legal weed shop is something some people have waited their entire life for, so I will not rush you out the door. Anyone who does is not a suitable budtender... Read More

Is High Times Becoming Clickbait?

August 8th, 2017

What’s up confessioners, confessionistas, confessionalists! I recently decided I needed to make a move in life. I left Steamboat Springs for the college town of Ft Collins, Colorado. It was time for a change, but do not worry, I only changed towns not occupations. At this point, I cannot imagine myself doing anything other than working in the cannabis industry. I have been in training to work in this field since I was fifteen years old, I am not going to leave it now. What am I going to put on a suit and tie and work at some bank? No that is not me, I like the reality of a cannabis dispensary... Read More

Cannabis Capital

July 25th, 2017

Do you want to be a better budtender? Then go to Amsterdam. Working in the industry in America with knowledge of the old world is priceless and it can be a good way to reconnect with cannabis if you are a long-time budtender. After a time, so much weed goes through your hands that it can start to become just another commodity. It is easy to get in a rut, and it is easy to forget how much you love this plant when you find yourself cranking it out daily at work. Visiting the city can provide a memorable and immersive learning experience that can provoke imagination, introduce unknown subject matter,... Read More

710 Dabbing Day

July 11th, 2017

The following quote is to be read in your best stoner voice. “Duuuuude, I have an idea for the newest holiday in the cannabis world bro. OK, so let me tell you how we are gonna do it. OK, since we love taking oil dabs we will take that word “OIL” and read it backwards for some reason. Wait, wait, wait that is not right. Ok I got it. When it is turned upside down and backwards it looks like it now says the numbers “710” right? Just follow along it will make sense, you are going to love this next part bro. 710 will refer to 7/10, or July the tenth. Now on July tenth every year we are going... Read More

Dependence Day

July 4th, 2017

When you are on the pro-marijuana side of things it is hard to admit if there is any risk to using it. Both sides debate potential hazards of cannabis, but the topic of addiction rarely comes up. Are you addicted to weed? If your significant other, a job, or your parents asked you to stop do you think you could do it? The answer is yes you can do it because you are not addicted to weed. Weed fills the void when life gets a little mundane is all, and what some of us can develop from using it over time is a slight weed-dependent mindset. Quitting is simple, if you want to quit you got this. Don’t... Read More
