Haze V3 Vaporizer Product Review

What would you get if you wanted a vaporizer that didn’t look like a vaporizer? No, let’s try that again. How about a stealthy portable vaporizer that fits in your pocket and is practically armor-plated? What if I told you it would also let you load two different strains and switch between them? Indica and […]

Grizzly Guru Vaporizer Product Review

Every once in a while, I get a mysterious package forwarded from my publisher. This one was bigger than most, and came with an intriguing note: “This one will really blow your mind.” So I opened it to see once again that the guy knows my taste: The Grizzly Guru is the first portable vaporizer […]

Back To Vaping and Happy Bicycle Day!

Those of you into psychedelic drugs, especially LSD, know that today is universally celebrated as Bicycle Day, the anniversary of the first intentional LSD trip.

The Incredible Vanishing Marijuana Stigma

Using Leafly.com, Weedmaps, and the websites of individual dispensaries that we have visited previously and liked, we research who has what […]

No machines. No “filters”. No “crutches”. No bullshit! Just rolling paper, weed…and a double album! In the video, I show how to use two rolling papers stuck together to make it easier to roll a joint, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be smoking better with just one (better weed to paper […]

Making Frankenstein Oil With the Magical Butter Machine

My dear wife Felicity has been having more than the usual amount of trouble sleeping lately. Although her daytime cannabinoid requirements have not changed (one or two capsules still get her through the day), she’s been needing higher doses at night due to higher amounts of stress. Since we generally make our capsules fairly “light”, […]

ProTip: Get Your Emerald Cup Tickets in Advance

Last year, Felicity and I went to our first Emerald Cup and we loved it. It’s a different vibe than the High Times events; a lot more cultivation-oriented, lots of good medical information, and plenty of music! In fact, we kind of pooped out afterwards because we overdid it. This year, we’re staying overnight to […]
