Navigating the spider webs of life, sober and not

As I travelled around the World Wide Web recently, I got caught up in some metaphorical spider webs. They’re old webs built by spiders dosed on various psychoactive chemicals. I remember seeing the pictures of them back in my days, early sophomore year, in a magazine I’d collected for my work-study library job. It was a...

Strain review: Louis XIII

What is it?

Like most of the California Ocean Grown strains, Louis XIII has heavily-rumored origins. The truth is she’s an OG Kush phenotype, and most likely back-crossed and stabilized with her close cousins. Unlike the sativa-feeling OG Kush we’re all familiar with, the Louis leans far to the indica side. The example...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘Finding Nemo’

There is no possible way you can have a bad time watching Pixar movies high. Visually, they are colorful and vibrant. Emotionally, they are sincere and profound. Narratively, they are surprisingly complex and funny. Plus, they’re ultimately intended for both adults and children to enjoy (and watch together), so you’ll feel...

Tincture Belle Chronic Dreamz

What is it?

It’s 100mg of THC infused in smooth white chocolate with crunchy cookie pieces mixed in. The candy bar-style edible is sectioned off in ten 10mg doses, and contained in a childproof plastic bottle. Each bar is made with high quality Ghirardelli chocolate and has the feeling of being handcrafted.

The...

4/20: Mythology and fact

There’s a lot of mystery and mythology surrounding this number. Sure, you see “420-friendly” on a roommate listing and know exactly what it means – (it means you want to move in ASAP) – but do you know WHY it means that? Here, we’ll dispel some common misconceptions and get to the truth of the matter.

The 1960s come around again, and Leary’s advice is relevant

American culture cycles and recycles; musical sensibilities, trends in clothes, cars and even haircuts all have their time on the popular stage – all the rage one season, anathema the next, but, hold on to your stuff; the time will come when you (or maybe your kids, someday) will discover things anew and that sparkle will...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition – ‘Half Baked’

“Half Baked” is the quintessential stoner comedy, the king of kings – so it seems only noble and natural to recommend it for 4/20 next week.

The story begins with four best buds (pun intended) who begin smoking at a young age. When they mature into adults, not much has changed: they’re roommates inhabiting a colorful,...

Highdeas: What should you do on 4/20?

Several Durango dispensaries are having holiday specials!

Durango Greenery: Celebrating early on Saturday, 4/16 with specials, drawings and free pizza.

Sante Durango: On 4/20, the shop has a spinning wheel with prizes (you could win a gift basket, vaporizer, T-shirts, or discount toward your purchases). Also...

Netflix and Chill: 420 Edition – What to keep in mind while watching high

Some movies pair well with weed, while others suck regardless of how high you are. Comedies, in particular, seem uniquely suited to marijuana consumption; the good ones are funny sober, but even better high. The bad ones are slightly cleverer after you’ve imbibed. And the “stoner comedy” is the industry’s sole...

Weed review: Ectocooler

What is it?

It’s definitely not the Ghostbusters-inspired fluorescent green Hi-C drink from the ’80s. Our Ectocooler is a wonderfully relaxing 27.6 percent THC indica-dominant variety that’s the result of crossing a male Gorilla Biscuit strain with a female Ae77 California Orange strain. It has all the potent lime...

Altered states and consciousness: We’ve been doing it forever

Consciousness: the reason Descartes climbed in the oven; from the Latin scire, meaning “to know,” Webster’s medical dictionary defines it as “the totality in psychology of sensations, perceptions, ideas, attitudes, and feelings of which an individual or a group is aware at any given time or within a given time span.”...

Explore mind-expanding, soul-tickling aspects of cannabis

“When the state sends us to prison for, essentially, exploring our own consciousness, it’s a grotesque abuse of human rights.”

— Graham Hancock, author

What are we, homo sapiens? Just another mammal species, perhaps; milk-making, lightly covered with hair, mostly built of water, a group of chemical...
