Kiva Chocolate Bar

Using Kiva Chocolate Bars As a Standard of Measurement

Last week, Felicity and I visited SPARC in San Francisco, and one of the things we picked up there was a Kiva chocolate bar. I’ve gotten these in the past, and I really admire their quality and careful attention to detail and consistency. This time, I happened to notice a cardboard package insert with the […]

A Visit to SPARC in San Francisco

Ah, San Francisco! Origin of the 60s peace/love/acid/lids movement, and home to the most famous intersection of hippiedom, Haight-Ashbury. Felicity and I found ourselves there last week. We had gone to pick up some specialized tools for work I’m doing on our house, and meet a friend for lunch, and we thought we’d visit SPARC. […]

Great Balls of Ganja Goo!

Dear friends, I am very happy to be able to bring you this adventure, which has been lost in my archives for well over a decade. It happened exactly 15 years ago today, to the minute (I’ve timed this to publish exactly at 12:15…you will soon see why). I was excited to be at the […]

AVB Pizza Revisited

About six weeks ago, I talked about one of my old standby favorite edibles, AVB Pizza, in detail. I warned in that article (in bold letters!) that you can feel “surges of highness” four hours later, and last night I proved that beyond the shadow of a doubt. As usual, I try to recreate the […]

How To Make Old Hippie’s AVB Pot Pizza

I am very gratified that so many people love and appreciate my cannabis cooking recipes ( How To Blast Off with Nutella Firecrackers is currently closing in on There’s No Such Thing As Marijuana for the top all-time article here). But I figure that almost everything can be improved, so that’s why I came up with this […]

Old Hippie’s Complete Guide To AVB

AVB (Already Vaped Bud, a.k.a. ABV (Already Been Vaped) and even “Vape Poo” by some people) is the shorthand term for cannabis that’s already been used in a vaporizer. You’ve already helped your medical condition, or gotten high with it, by using it the first time. And as they say on TV…but wait, there’s more! AVB will […]

The Reluctant Cannabis Patient

So, how did I get started with medical cannabis? I have asthma, PTSD, anxiety, and panic attacks. When Old Hippie and I went to a medical cannabis gathering awhile back, someone there said that smoking cannabis was good for asthma. I almost said bullshit to his face. Smoke, particulates, perfume all hurt my lungs. My […]

AdvENTures With Cannabis Edibles

Super Cure Me: Two Years Of Using Medical Marijuana Daily

A while back, someone came up with the clever title “Super Size Me” and made a film about what happened to their body and health after eating nothing but McDonald’s for a solid month. Then Doug Benson riffed on that with “Super High Me” and got blitzed out on marijuana for a month with absolutely […]

The Cookie Of Doom

Of Cannabis Edibles And Overdosing

It has occurred to me that some people might just get the wrong idea. After all, I’ve written at least half a dozen stories here about various of my adventures involving overdoses of Medical Marijuana edibles, which left me in various states of highness, generally in the double digits (AKA “tripping balls“). I’d like to […]
