Seeing Through the Smoke

When your significant other or sister or roommate (or mom or grandma) confronts you and asks, “Why does my hair smell like popcorn and kush?!?” you’re going to look her straight in the eye and say, “I’m sorry. It’s called rosin. I’ll buy you another straightening iron.” Then, leave and go buy her another straightening iron....

Strain of the Week: Cantaloupe Haze

What is it?

This almost-pure sativa is a cross between a Landrace variety found in Michoacan, Mexico, and Haze Brother’s haze. Its award-winning genetics are rich in Equatorial Sativas, including verities from Colombia, Thailand and India. Because Cantaloupe Haze is extremely quick to flower for a sativa, it has been...

High-ass recipes: Baked Baked Potatoes

A friend once likened oatmeal to a canvas, merely a backdrop to what you choose to color it with. Baked potatoes are the same, with as many combinations as there are colors in the spectrum (and depending on how high your ass is, there just might be more colors available, as far as you know).

To me, every baked potato...

Seeing Through the Smoke: Hashy holidays

Whether your leanings tend toward Scrooge’s “Bah, humbug” or the ensemble of misfit toys’ sentiment that the Christmas season is “the most wonderful time of the year,” it is impossible to ignore the feeling connected with the stretch of time accompanying the calendar year’s wind-down. There is a distinct vibration associated...

High-ass recipes: BBQ bacon and onion cheese enchiladas

The writer Flannery O’Connor said that endings to stories should always be “surprising yet inevitable.” That is, the story could end in no other way, and yet, somehow it catches the reader off guard. That’s what the prototypical high-ass recipe is all about: Foods that were made to be combined and yet, largely haven’t been....

Death Star

What is it?

I’d like to tell you this cross between Sour Diesel and Sensi Star was developed by Lord Vader himself on the galactic super weapon it shares a name with, but it was actually bred by some guys in Ohio. As a grower, I question the genetics claimed by the developers because I’ve crossed these two strains with...

Seeing Through the Smoke: Mr. Weedman Bring Me a Dream

Cannabis can be like heaven’s manna for the insomniac. If you’ve hit that point where life has decided that staring at the ceiling is more important than getting refreshed for what’s to come tomorrow, consider a nice indica as an option. The chemicals found in marijuana most specifically responsible for summoning the sandman...

High Ass Recipes: Bomb Diggity Popped Corn

At the movies, I will straight up slay a tub of GMO-grade kernels slathered in palm oil, high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors, worshiping every pudgy grub-full of that low-grade garbage. At home, however, I like my popcorn gourmet, so here are four bomb-diggity recipes to make your high ass grin with pure...

Now that I think about it, it’s OK to be a stoner

If having a weekly deadline for this column has done anything for lil ol’ me, it has caused me to preserve and to look more closely at the thoughts that float through my head. I am a stoner and, apparently, a bit of a goofball; I offer the following group of thoughts for your investigation:

Did David Bowie invent the...

Strain of the week: Durban Poison

What is it?

No mystery here. Durban Poison is named after South Africa’s port city of Durban, where it’s been smuggled out of for decades. It’s a pure subtropical sativa with soaring cerebral high. It’s the backbone of many modern hybrids because of its fast flowering time, healthy yields and amazing trichome...

High Ass Recipe: California Toast

Growing up in California I was a fat, glossy, lucky little child with a large avocado orchard at my disposal. I grew into a fat, glossy, lucky little teenager who developed a stoner recipe so simple and so delicious it’s just plain stupid. I’m sure we can all agree to the fact that avocados are positively danktastic. Add one...

Some days, getting high just helps you along

Turkey Day seemed like a good day for a wake-n-bake. It’s not something I do a whole lot of nowadays. Most of my mornings involve a yogurt and fruit concoction from the blender, a mason jar of coffee and a few hours of wandering around the woods and cornfields with a crew of dogs. Not a bad gig if you can get it ...
