Edibles that hit the right SPOT

Regardless of your opinion on cannabis types, plant genetics and their associated effects, one thing is for sure: the nuance of cannabis flower has been communicated loud and clear.

But what about edibles?

An educated stoner might tell you that the question is irrelevant. That your liver, which is responsible for breaking down THC in your body, cannot tell the difference between a Sativa brownie or a Hybrid cookie or an Indica chocolate.

Top 3 Tour Weed Memories

As a long-practicing weed smoker, nothing seems to smooth over the anxiety of meeting hundreds of new people a week like a nice J after a show.  In recent years, some state legislation has blessed us with dispensary pit stops for our weed fix (Colorado! California!), but most places still feel like the Wild West in that regard. I have been touring in bands for over a decade now, and I have had some pretty weird/dire/embarrassing hunts and experiences looking for chronic.

The Science and Art of Judging Cannabis: Introducing Evergreen Cup Winner, Seattle’s Private Reserve

Why does Willie Nelson embrace cannabis? When Nelson gets stoned, it’s not recreational use, he says in an 2016 interview with The Cannabist: “It’s medicine, and it’s already been proven to be medicine.

The Mystery Of Acapulco Gold

Every stoner, new and old, has heard of the sativa flower strain Acapulco Gold. It’s a strain that’s taken on a life entirely of its own. It is renowned throughout much of the world for its potency, its sweet, earthy flavors, and its unmistakably unique, almost psychedelic, effects.
