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...

Weed review: The Drops (tincture) by Canyon Cultivation

What is it?

Cannabis tincture is made by dissolving its constituents in alcohol. I’m not usually a fan of tinctures, but this little powerhouse has definitely changed my mind. The 100 milligrams of THC is suspended in an all natural, no GMO, gluten free, Co2-extracted alcohol-based liquid and flavored with essential...

Miracle on the horizon? Using cannabis to fight cancer

Welcome, class. Today in Weed 101, we’re going to take a comprehensive look at cannabis as a medicine and see if we can arm ourselves with some important knowledge to carry forward.

First of all, a bit of review: Yes, this is, without a doubt, a “real thing,” not some sort of shenanigans perpetuated by stoners in an...

Netflix and Chill — 420 Edition: Don Hertzfeldt’s “World of Tomorrow”

“World of Tomorrow” (2015) is an animated science fiction short film written and directed by Don Hertzfeldt. It’s a melancholy movie, but a beautiful one – and only 16 minutes long, so why not give it a shot? It’s up for best short at the Oscars. The story follows a sweet stick-figure toddler named Emily, who receives a phone...

Strain of the Week: Aphrodisiac (Sensi)

What is it?

An aphrodisiac is anything you can take that stimulates sexual desire, and on this Valentine’s Day, Sensi is the strain of marijuana that definitely fits the definition. Her full name is Sensi Star and she’s a multiple Cannabis Cup-winning indica strain from Paradise Seeds. Her genetics have been kept...

Dear U.S. government: Medical marijuana is nothing new

I am not a doctor, nor am I trying to play one here on DGO, but, I believe it’s time to take a deeper look into medical marijuana. This is partially to shine a light on the surprisingly varied methods by which the cannabis plant works in concert with the human body in order to promote good health, and partially to put a final...

Netflix and Chill, 420 Edition: That ’70s Show

This period sitcom aired on Fox from 1998 to 2006, tracking a group of teens in a fictional Wisconsin town in the 1970s. The series normalized pot use among young people; the group of friends who regularly imbibed weren’t all burnouts or degenerates – well, some of them were – but mostly they were harmless adolescents. One or...

Strain of the Week: Great White Shark

What is it?

Great White Shark is a multi-award-winning blend of exceptional genetics from around the world. Introduced by Greenhouse seeds, it won its first Cannabis Cup back in 1997. THC hunters might mistakenly pass this one by because it consistently comes in at only 14.8 percent THC and .22 percent CBD, but its...
