10 Unique Pipes That Double as Home Decor
There's no gentle way to say this: the majority of mainstream cannabis pipes are absolute eyesores. You know exactly what I'm talking about. Nearly every corner store has a case packed full of gaudy glass pieces, their surfaces swirled with neon colors and embossed with 420 emblems. No big deal if you're a twenty two year old still fueled mostly by Four Loko and 7-11 snacks, but - especially in the era of Alexa family drop-ins and Zoom live classes - some of us would prefer a bit more... subtlety.

The 5 Best Albums to Listen to When High
Yes, I understand that this list has been done before (many times), but here's the catch: Pink Floyd won't be on it. And as much as I love the prog-rock gods themselves, every single person who has gotten high has listened to Dark Side of the Moon. Today, the focus will be on more independent, obscure, or simply overlooked albums! All of these can be found across every major music distributor, from Spotify to Bandcamp. So here are my top five get-high-to albums that you've probably never heard of!
Trippy Tattoos Every Stoner Needs
Tattoos are becoming more accepted in mainstream culture every day. The old derision, "You're never going to get a job looking like that," is becoming outdated for a lot of professions.
The Mysterious Ballerina
The sickness continues to grow within me... The color of black became my new uniform I wear over my heart... Is it hard? To stare at my own reflection?
Best Designed Cannabis Packaging
There was a time when weed commerce was all about the goods: no frills required. If a dealer was reliable, readily available and sold good product, that was more than enough for a customer to go through with the transaction. Stoners would happily pay for a plastic baggie with the strain scribbled in Sharpie; hell, any receptacle that would somewhat mask the smell was more than enough to warrant repeat purchases. After all, all that matters is what’s on the inside, right?
Ladies of Stoner Rock on Spotify
Stoners invented heavy metal music, influenced by centuries of occult chanting witches spells and a counter culture movement that began in the early 1970s. Numerous albums covers and song lyrics hinted at the cannabis culture. Today, stoner rock bands span from the psychedelic to the hard core pounding of drums and bass into a rhythmic trip of intensity. It is the female led bands that have bound the past to the future. It is women who bind life's future to its past. It is women who lead the stoner rock evolution. The ladies of stoner rock lure us to the list of weed to smoke with your favorite leading lady.
Tripping Through the Beatnik Generation
Straight from my uncle's journal is a summary of his thoughts while tripping through the Beatnik Generation. From his perspective the roots of Pop Culture can be traced back to the post WWII Beatnik Movement. He passed in 1994, and left me a treasure trove of journals vividly recounting the moments he shared with some of the greatest influences of the Beatnik Generation.
Underground Comix Artist Gilbert Shelton
Underground comix was a counter culture art form with a large cult following. Like a hall of mirrors, they distorted and exaggerated reality, turning the sublime into the ridiculous, the serious into absurdity, tickling the rib and poking an outrageous finger at social convention and humbug. The golden age of underground comix spawned artists like Gilbert Shelton and Robert Crumb, among others, with their unique and anarchic talents. Gilbert Shelton was the creator of Those Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, a regular in comix. His perceptions of the 1960's and the future of counter culture movements, in his own words is both enlightening and fortuitous.
Choosing the Right Seeds
Choosing the right seed is probably the most important decision that a grower makes. The seed, actually the fruit of the cannabis plant, properly known as an achene, contains, among other things, the germ plasma, or genetic material.
Trippy Art of Calligraphy
I get out my pot and my papers, a pot of ink, and the paper is the kind you write on rather than roll in. Next, I choose a pen, and prepare to get high. This is hardly the sort of paraphernalia usually associated with tripping out, yet I’ve found that trippy art of calligraphy, which means beautiful writing, has the capacity to unwind my mind down pathways as intriguingly convoluted as the curlicues on a copperplate. I begin to roll a beautiful joint for my journey.
