7 Pointers for First Time Marijuana Smokers

7 Pointers for First Time Marijuana Smokers

July 13, 2017

Whether you're 21 years old or 72, it won't matter. If it was your first time smoking weed, you will need to read this. Smoking weed is fairly easy, but needs couple of times of run-throughs to be able to get it right, or to feel "right". Keep in mind, it's slightly different than smoking cigarettes, and I do NOT suggest using cigarettes as a practicing tool to smoke weed. I enjoy cigarettes purely for the social aspect of it, but it's a shitty substance that you don't need in your life especially if you have an additive personality. Waste a dime or two on experimenting with pot, or you can try to find Marijuana Shake, rather getting into the worst habit the humanity every originated.

Cultivate Confidence. Disrupt the Stigma of Cannabis - 420 Dating

June 20, 2017

Many mainstream coaches, therapists and matchmakers don't understand just how beneficial responsible cannabis consumption can be in life or in a relationship, and we provide a safe space without judgment. If smoking a joint or hitting a vape during a coaching session makes you feel more comfortable opening up, go for it! Our Head Coach Molly is a longtime cannabis enthusiast, and it's one of the reasons she and her husband are so compatible. We respect fellow cannabis consumers, and we understand where they're coming from.

In addition to all of its medicinal uses, we’ve experienced how cannabis gives perspective, increases focus, reduces stress and anxiety, and enhances connections with others. We want to help consumers become confident in their relationship with cannabis, because cannabis is a perfect analogy for being genuine and accepting yourself as you are. That’s the true definition of confidence.

Why There Is No Such Thing As a Stoner Girl

Why There Is No Such Thing As a Stoner Girl

June 20, 2017

Reading marijuana-devoted websites can be both educational and frustrating. The frustrating part begins when people who are in charge of attracting more visitors make up silly meaningless listicles, like this one that claims to provide 17 reasons to date a girl who smokes weed. Of course every girl who smokes weed will click on this. And some of them will also forward the link to their boyfriends, so it works. 

I need to say that I highly respect the High Times magazine. It is probably the most important media outlet for drug culture of the 20th century. They still do quality journalism, although they have some competition now. But can’t they do better than trying to imitate Buzzfeed?

The Evolution of Weed - Branding a New Design

The Evolution of Weed - Branding a New Design

June 15, 2017

The fight over marijuana legalization is coming to a near end. It has outlived its bad reputation.  But what use to be seen as a societal taboo, is now being accepted by society. Marijuana is no longer exclusive to the subculture of stoners and rebellious youth. Now it is a product of a lifestyle. It has taken decades just to get the usage of marijuana decriminalized.  It seems that the usage of weed is not too far from being legal nationwide. But how will the expansion of marijuana proceed after it's no longer illegal?

Traveling with Medical Cannabis - Is It Possible?

Traveling with Medical Cannabis - Is It Possible?

June 08, 2017

Traveling with Medical Cannabis - Is It Possible? Federal law prohibits cannabis in any form to be possessed by individuals for legal or medicinal purposes because cannabis is still considered to be a schedule I substance by our federal government. TSA is not an anti-drug entity, however, and does not search for marijuana during the screening process.  If, however, cannabis is turned up during a search or screen, appropriate law enforcement officer(s) are notified.

TSA still reserves the right to deny any item on board a plane, and this includes marijuana.  Even if a person is flying from one legal state to another legal state, the cannabis may not be protected, and the person possessing it could potentially...

Organic Canna-Honey Right from the Hive. Does It Get You High Though?

Organic Canna-Honey Right from the Hive. Does It Get You High Though?

June 06, 2017

An artist, locksmith, and beekeeper (“Nicholas Trainer-bees”) from France has been able to train bees to produce honey from resin gathered by the bees from cannabis plants. “Cannahoney” is created when the bees transport the resin from flowering cannabis plants back to the beehive to make the honey itself in a natural process. 

According to Nicholas, bees are not affected by cannabis because they have no method for processing or accepting cannabinoids – they have no Endocannabinoid System. Putting to bed concerns of potential risk to the bees was an essential part of the developmental process for this product.  Cannabis and honey both have healing properties creating a kind of synergistic all natural possibility in terms of an edible item.  Nicholas confirmed that bees can be trained to utilize resin from any strain making targeted variations of the product possible. More testing needs to be done to measure how much of the initial resin is available in the finished goods.

Marijuana Has a Positive Impact on Society

Marijuana Has a Positive Impact on Society

June 05, 2017

Bloom Farms recently hosted a cannabis appreciation event in Oakland, CA. The Budtenders Bash was a thank you for the employees of the cannabis industry.

The empowerment can be seen by the attendees, which included a mostly young and diverse crowd. Their knowledge of the product and the risk factor adds to their appeal in the marijuana business.

The opportunities of legalization has nothing to do with getting “high”. There is the tax revenue in the millions of dollars. Creation of employment in the construction, media retail, manufacturing, and agriculture industries to name a few. This surge in employment could reach nearly a quarter million jobs. Social capital, which is an economic, and social network that reciprocates trust, cooperation, and cultural gain to the community’s common good.

Cannabis and Creativity

Cannabis and Creativity

June 02, 2017

With much speculation about whether or not consumption of cannabis leads to better access to creativity, one question begging to be answered is if musicians can create better music while using it to influence the creative process in general.  There are many articles present on the internet on both sides of the issue including artists who feel they did better without it, and artists who feel like they would not have been able to bring their songs to fruition without a little help.  Louis Armstrong is noted as one of the first musicians to make his cannabis use public stating, “…it’s an assistant – a friend.”  Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys who wrote Pet Sounds also spoke of its use to help him write the music on that album.

National Cannabis Summit or Weedstock?

May 31, 2017

You can expect exactly what you would expect at a National Cannabis Summit; a man trying to sell his turbine for marijuana growers, a sales pitch about the five reasons to consider a pen vape. In another instance, there was an attendee selling the official “wake and bake” breakfast, marijuana-infused pancake/crepe batter and a non-proofread financial planner brochure full of misspelled words.

The summit also explored the cannabis industry in a more industrialized perspective. One speaker expressed her excitement about the $11 million in sales during the first quarter of legalized recreational marijuana.
