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

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’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 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

STASHLOGIX is a Logical Solution for Your Stash

July 2nd, 2017

How do you keep all of your herbs, shatter, edibles, and accessories in order?   Are you like me and have a bunch of different containers that you use?  Maybe you use an old cigar box?   Or do you use a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle lunchbox from the late 80’s?   If you’re a cannabis connoisseur, I’m sure you have your own way of hiding your stash.   But could it use an upgrade?  I know mine sure can! This is where STASHLOGIX comes into play.  Based in Boulder, STASHLOGIX designs “thoughtful, discreet, and secure” bags and accessories.   While they advertise their bags for... Read More

The Media’s Credibility Is Going Up In Smoke

June 27th, 2017

The way a media outlet frames a story is essential and can influence our understanding of it. Their version of a story can affect public opinion or generate awareness in a community. Historically they have been the ones to deliver the facts, less so when the topic of cannabis comes up though. By now we all realize that marijuana is not the harmful substance the last few generations believed it to be. I would wager that most of our nightly news correspondents have even tried it. So, if we are all on the same page about this stuff, then why does the media treat it so flippantly? The media seems incapable... 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

Confession Of A Budtender

June 20th, 2017

This week I was criticized by a reader for not offering a true “confession” like the title of this blog suggests. Alright I have a reader! The thing is though, there is not much to expose about being a budtender. There are no secrets that need uncovering, no whistleblowing that needs doing, and no oppressive leader that needs toppling. I am not an investigative journalist up here to call out the weed industry for their abuses of power, I am just a dude who works in a weed shop. “Breaking News! Nobody likes strains that are low in THC, more on this story next week”. I like to make fun of... Read More
