VapingGollihugh recommends a company out of Denver called Pat Pen, which makes little vape cartridges for $30. Progar is a big fan of WonderLeaf, a new company in Colorado. “Theirs is really the only vape cartridge I like smoking,” Progar said.

Sick of smoking? Try this instead

You might love to get high, but not everyone’s lungs appreciate being cloaked in clouds of smoke. Maybe you’re sick of coughing like you’re hacking up a lung every time you take a big hit. Perhaps you’re grossed out by the soggy end of a passed-around joint. Maybe you’ve dropped and smashed one too many glass bowls. Well,...

Cannabusiness and cash: We’re still at the whims of the feds

Do you have those situations in your life that just shimmer with a “Groundhog Day” vibration? Maybe it’s a friend who comes to all your get-togethers, brings crappy beer and pounds as many tasty brews in as short a time as possible; a relative who serves the same terrible 1970s casserole when you arrive for your twice-yearly...

Netflix and Chill: 420 Edition: ‘28 Weeks Later’

Take it from someone who saw this movie in a theater, under the influence, all the way back in 2007: You will love it if you are stoned, but you might want to steer clear if you have any sort of existing heart condition. The first 15 minutes or so exemplify some truly masterful, relentless action-horror filmmaking; but...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘The Shallows’

I already recommended a shark movie in this column (“Deep Blue Sea” a few weeks back), but “The Shallows” is currently in theaters, and there’s nothing like big screen blue waters teeming with blood and chum to get your stoned heart racing. “Shallows” stars Blake Lively, who has been a sweet if uninspiring presence in most of...

Natives and transplants: Where should Colorado’s marijuana investment come from?

Green begets green: the legalization of cannabis in Colorado has generated enormous amounts of money, a situation that should be a win for everyone involved. But there are a host of problems that have accompanied this green rush. While most of the difficulties bypass the happy consumers, business owners are forced to grapple...

Girls just wanna get high

Think about all the stoner buddy movies you’ve seen: “Half Baked,” “Pineapple Express,” “Harold and Kumar,” “Dude Where’s My Car?,” “Grandma’s Boy.” They’re about men, right? That’s hardly a coincidence. Celebrities who identify publicly as stoners are largely male, as well – Snoop Dogg, Seth Rogen, Willie Nelson, Cheech and...

Topical cannabis: Secrets from Mary Jane’s Medicinals

Dahlia Mertens, founder of Telluride’s Mary Jane’s Medicinals, told us some secrets of her trade. Her products are all topical (applied directly to the outside of the body), rather than ingested (taken internally), and the topical application of cannabis has been demonstrated as effective for pain management, healing of...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘Getting Doug With High’

“Getting Doug With High” is a video and audio podcast show hosted by stand-up comedian Doug Benson, and every episode is available on YouTube. You might remember Benson from “Super High Me,” a documentary about marijuana use in which Benson consumed cannabis every day for 30 days and noted changes in his physical and mental...

Strain review: Critical Mass

What is it?This strain was developed by Mr. Nice Seeds in an effort to improve and stabilize a previous strain called Big Bud. Its predecessor grew very heavy buds, but the overall effect of the strain was definitely sub par. Crossing an Afghani landrace with a Skunk #1 gave this strain...

Legal weed gets an ‘A’ ... except on pesticides

I believe that the “Colorado Cannabis Experiment” is one of the most successful legislative initiatives introduced in our nation, at any level, over the past decade or more. Were I grading it, I would be hard pressed to find enough problems with the progress of Amendment 64 as it approaches the two-and-a-half year mark to...

Strain review: Berry White

What its its?Whether you call it Berry White, White Berry or Blue Widow, they’re all the same strain, which is a cross between indica Blueberry and hybrid White Widow. It’s a very hearty and relatively easy plant to grow with good yields and a respectable THC level coming in at around 22...
