Netflix and chill – 420 edition: ‘Synecdoche, New York’

If you’re looking for an in-da-couch kind of movie to turn your brain off, you’ll want to skip this one entirely. But if you’re in the mood to fire up a heavy head-high sativa, this is all you.

Every Charlie Kaufman movie will send you on a cerebral joy ride, but “Synecdoche, New York,” might be his crowning...

1<3: What you might not know about Rastafari

If we as tokers have a religion that we can feel a spiritual affinity with, it would have to be the Afro-Caribbean form of worship known as Rastafari. But what do we Northerners actually know about the faith of Bob Marley?

Dreadlocks, reggae, the Lion of Zion, Babylon and smoke that ganja ... Right?

Yeah ......

Sueño

What is it?

Sueño is an obscure strain that’s gaining popularity in Colorado both for its amazing effects and its good production value. Because there’s nothing online, researching its genetics and origins was a serious challenge that brought me all the way back to one of its original breeders. After many phone calls, I...

Get to know Canna-Boss No.1: Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, the guy who isolated THC

Oh, hello, DGO – we’re gonna do something new here in our little weed garden this week as we greet the de facto arrival of springtime. Please enjoy the first of an occasional installment series looking at some of the great minds and voices of the cannabis movement. We’re gonna call it Canna-Bosses and our first is an...

Strain of the week: Citrix

What is it?

Citrix is a very powerful cross between sativa-leaning Grapefruit, and heavy-indica LA Confidential. Even though she’s 50 percent indica, she smokes all sativa. At around 20 percent THC, its indica lineage keeps it balanced, and its high terpene profile makes it an amazingly comfortable smoke.

The...

Netflix and Chill - 420 Edition: ‘Adventureland’

“Adventureland” is a whimsical period film about a not-too-distant American time period, though one we can nonetheless express nostalgia for – the ’80s. Directed by Greg Mottola (“Superbad”), this one stars Jesse Eisenberg as a nerdy, post-college intellectual named James. He is accepted into Columbia for grad school, but his...

Netflix and Chill: 420 Edition – ‘Fletch’

The great thing about “Fletch” paired with weed is that you could be in a room full of high people, each doing different strains, and everyone would have something to dig into.

First, for the cerebral crowd, “Fletch” has a somewhat intricate plot full of twists, surprises and reversals. It’s not Ulysses by any means,...

Weed review: Space Cream

What is it?

Space Cream is relatively new to the scene, but it’s already gained a great reputation as a very psychoactive sativa-leaning powerhouse. She’s the love child of Space Queen and Timewreck, and exhibits the best qualities of both. The genetics would leave you to believe it’s around 70 percent sativa, but when...

As Supreme Court looms, more villains, lies, political agendas

As we gear up for what will potentially be the most important legal battle in the nearly century-long war against a bush, the challenge to the United States Supreme Court of Colorado’s legalization by Nebraska and Oklahoma, let’s take some time to review the history of cannabis in relation to the penal code.

First, a...

Strain review: Mother’s Finest

What is it?

Originally bred in Amsterdam by Sensi Seeds, this 70 percent sativa dominant strain is fast becoming a favorite right here in Colorado. The breeders named it after Frank Zappa’s band, and even though I hate the name, this is an amazing Jack Herer cross that definitely shows its Haze and (rumored) Northern...

Outside the history of hysteria, how scary is marijuana?

This morning I checked my news feed, laughed as another testimonial of cannabis playing a major role in curing someone’s cancer brightened my life, thought about a girl I went to school with whose daughter used cannabis to reduce her seizure frequency from dozens of episodes daily to almost none, and read about the...

Netflix and Chill — 420 Edition: “Clerks”

“Clerks” is a low-budget, black-and-white cult comedy from 1994 directed by Kevin Smith. This one is perfect to watch when you’re stoned because it’s pretty intellectually low-maintenance and doesn’t require a lot of effort on your brain’s part.

The film is practically plotless; it consists of two convenience store...
