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

THC and Paranoia

June 1st, 2017

THC and paranoia Paranoia. It is that term you often heard associated with smoking weed all your life, and perhaps have even experienced it. A study in 2014 set out to find out if THC is the cause of paranoia, as well as if THC could help identify the mechanisms that contribute to paranoia. 121 participants ages 21 to 50, with paranoid ideation received a placebo, THC, or THC preceded by a cognitive awareness explanation, in which participants were educated about possible effects prior to administration (Antley et al., 2014). Paranoia in this study was defined as the individual experiencing an... Read More

Spoiler Alert, Marijuana Makes Money!

May 30th, 2017

On any average day, I would say I see more out-of-state visitors than Colorado ones. So, for the sake of this blog, I began asking customers their thoughts on how long they think it will be until they see any kind of a legalization within their own states. The response I got from most people was, “my state will be the last to legalize weed”. These are grown men and women telling me they have no hope for their state, meanwhile, everyone in line behind them is also from their home state. Why choose to be so dire about the possibilities of legalization back home, regardless of your state’s... Read More

Joint. Gym. Repeat. Training with Cannabis

May 20th, 2017

How do you incorporate cannabis into your training? For those interested in learning how to include cannabis into their fitness regimen as part of a balanced, overall health and wellness routine, this is one of the most common questions that gets asked. I’m always happy to share my habits and routines, but it’s nice to get a few different perspectives. Today we’re going to touch base on how I use cannabis as part of my training program, followed up by recent testimonial from retired professional athletes like Bas Rutten, Eben Britton, and Eugene Monroe when they appeared as the sports panel... 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

Two Sides of the Same Cannabis: Comparing THC and CBD

March 29th, 2017

Featured Photo Credit: Best CBD Oil  Though cannabis plays host to at least 85 different cannabinoids, there are two who tend to grab the most time in the spotlight: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). You’ve probably heard talk—or formed opinions yourself through careful research of your own—about preferences of marijuana users for certain strains that give them that amazing head high or, conversely, those who prefer a nice, mellow body buzz. These differences can be attributed to the makeup of a particular strain and its ratios of THC to CBD. Beyond the effect these two... Read More

What’s in a Name? That Which We Call a Cannabis Plant

March 1st, 2017

Bodies, right? They’re amazing. They’re weird. Fantastic. Puzzling. Beautiful. Gross. (I had to throw that last one in there because of the toddler-led education on bodily functions I’ve received over the last three years. #momlife) Bodies have been around so long that the names of all their parts have seemingly always been just the names of all their parts. We may not think about the fact that Fallopian tubes were named after the Italian anatomist, Gabriele Falloppio, who discovered them in the 16th century, or that the Eustachian tubes in the ears were named after the scientist—and fellow... 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

Edible Indulgence and the NFL

January 30th, 2017

Why does the National Football League (NFL) deny their players the right to use marijuana instead of habit-forming opioids?  That is the billion dollar question!  While NFL players continue to be suspended for cannabis use with just 35 nanogram of THC per milliliter, consider the fact, the Olympics allow four-times that amount for athletes around the world in the biggest competition on the planet. Crazy, right? So, what’s a football fan to do…watch the game high, of course! Edibles are a best bet for an evening of high-stakes football.  Here’s what to expect in a quality edible product: Shop... Read More
