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

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

Let’s Talk Topicals

June 17th, 2017

I beat myself up physically, by challenging myself in training so I can be stronger, faster, and better than the day before. Training isn’t just the work you put in at the gym, or on the track, it’s also a lot about recovery. I consume cannabis in many different ways, for different reasons, as detailed in last week’s article, Consuming Cannabis as an Athlete. This week we’re going to take a closer look at topicals, how they play a role in training and recovery, and what you can do to start using topicals into your everyday wellness routines. I have had the chance to experiment and try... 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

Consuming Cannabis as an Athlete

June 11th, 2017

Before moving to Colorado, I only had access to smoking flower as a form of consumption, unless I wanted to attempt my own edibles. Now, I have the freedom to choose from all sorts of consumption methods, and I’ve had time to experiment with them all, in order to find out what works best for my body. As mentioned in Training with Cannabis, we all need to determine what works best for us, when fitting cannabis into our wellness routines. We talked last week about Pairing different Strains with different activities and goals. This week, we’ll dive into choosing the right method of cannabis consumption... Read More

Cannabis Strains & Athletic Gains

June 3rd, 2017

Sour Diesel. Blue Dream. Granddaddy Purple. OG Kush. Gorilla Glue. The list of strains available on the market is seemingly endless, and grows longer every day as growers cross breeds to create new ones. The selection of strains differs at each dispensary, but the problem remains the same, you still have to figure out which one to buy. With so many choices, this can be overwhelming, even for a veteran consumer like myself. That’s why we’re going to look at what strains we can pair with certain activities to get the most out of them. Whether you’re Training with Cannabis on your own, or taking... Read More

Shift to the Next Cannabis Gear

May 28th, 2017

With sales in 2016 topping over $1 Billion dollars for cannabis (in fact, Colorado hit that number in the first 10 months of the year), it’s no surprise that a large number of professionals are leaving corporate jobs for this new industry.  Professionals and entrepreneurs alike are seeing how lucrative this industry can be.   However, a lot of them are unfamiliar with the ins and outs of cultivation, retail setup, and even the legal aspects of working within the industry.   That’s where Shift Cannabis Co. comes in.   Shift Cannabis Co is based in Longmont, Colorado and is a consulting... 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
