Netflix and Chill: 420 Edition

’80s-themed Snowdown is upon us. This was a decade of big hair, loud colors and Madonna. But the era was also rife with fantastic filmmaking; “E.T.,” “The Goonies,” “Indiana Jones,” “Star Wars,” “Back to the Future” and John Hughes. These movies were blockbuster darlings, but we’re highlighting a weirder, darker cult hit from...

Doing pot for the first time since ’85? Don’t get ‘tourist high’

Events like Snowdown are great because they bring a wider range of people to join the party. It’s not just the party professionals – the PLUR affiliates, the tailgaters and the habitually-up-all-nighters – attendees will include soccer moms trying to recapture a bit of that good ol’ undergraduate spirit, Jerry from accounting...

Wana Hot Cocoa

What is it?

This is the perfect warm-you-up hot cocoa for those chilly Snowdown days. It’s a single serving 10mg cannabis-infused powder you can mix with hot water or milk to keep you cozy at any event. It’s very stealth, but should always be used in legal places and kept away from kids who might mistake it for the...

High-ass recipe: High-aya

It’s rice, vegetables, meat and spices. It’s kind of like jambalaya with its Cajun-y-ness, and it’s also kind of like paella. Put the two together with some optional high-assiness, and you have high-ella ... or maybe it should be called jumbal-high-ya. Regardless, when it’s done, all you need is a bowl and spoon and a...

Secrets of a weed shop employee

People make wild assumptions about what goes on inside a weed shop. But it’s not the lawless, smoke-infused free-for-all you might be imagining; the environment at Durango Organics is both regulated and professional. To enter, you need to show ID (21 and older), there are cameras in the store with live feed to the Durango...

Seeing Through the Smoke: Time to get dirty

Plant life here on planet Earth breaks down to four elements – light, soil, wind and water. It can be a bit complex, but it’s not complicated; like choosing your next meal: you could run by the gas station and grab some burrito; you could go to the supermarket and select your own ingredients, bring them home, and prepare...

Strain of the week: Kosher Kush

What is it?

This is my favorite strain, so I’m excited to finally review some, grown perfectly in Durango by Wildcat Cannabis. She was created by L.A.-based Jewish growers and renamed by DNA genetics to honor their heritage. They kept its genetics unknown, but its awards are legendary, earning the Kosher multiple...

Netflix and Chill - 420 Edition: ‘Planet Earth’

There are some things that go together perfectly. Bacon and eggs. Simon and Garfunkel. Brad and Angelina. Getting high and watching nature documentaries.

You might think they’re dull; there’s no plot, characters or dialogue. It’s just ... nature. How wrong you are. BBC’s “Planet Earth” is no mere nature doc; it’s an...

Weed review: Keef Cola Root Beer

What is It?

Kief or Keef is an Arabic word meaning “pleasure or intoxication.” It’s also the bulbous end of the trichome, the part of the marijuana plant where all the THC and other cannabinoids are stored. Kief as a slang lets you know you’re getting the powdery crystal trichomes that make this root beer the 2015 High...

Seeing Through the Smoke: If you can grow tomatoes, you can grow cannabis

Cannabis and tomatoes have quite a few similarities, like sisters might. They have been developed by people to create a great number of sub-types suitable for a wide variety of purposes. With tomatoes, you might grow one variety for sauce, one for slicing onto sandwiches and a third variety could be those little cherry...

High-ass recipe: Coconut chocolate banana bread

All trying-and-failing banana eaters have one thing in common: Bananas that get too nasty, mushy and brown before you’ve had a chance to eat them. So, not to waste them, you throw them in the freezer for the day you tell yourself you’re going to make banana bread. And then before you know it, there are 29 bananas in your...
