I've sworn up and down for years that I would never get high.
Once you have started smoking for a while, your tolerance for regular old marijuana starts to rise. Then you come across the wonders of concentrated cannabis, or wax dabs, that seems to bring you to a whole other stoner level you didn't even think was imaginable. Over the last few years, I have learned to see the differences in how wax smokes, makes you feel, and the different high it gives you than smoking on kush.
As you may or may not know, recently there has been an international celebration of weed in which one smokes said "devils lettuce". It was celebrated in places such as California, Colorado and the first ever country to completely legalize weed; Uruguay. However, I ( like many) am unlucky enough to have been born on a patch of Earth where this plant is illegal and such celebrations are regularly met with confliction and confusion. So without further ado, let me lay out my personal experience and learnings of this sacred date.
How can you make this 4/20 the best it can possibly be? Other than simply getting high with friends, there are plenty of options. 4/20 is the unofficial holiday for stoners meant to celebrate the plant that has brought so many people around the world joy; it deserves special treatment.
Perhaps one of the most pervasive stoner stereotypes out there is the the "Mellow Hippie" trope. It's one that has been played out in movies, in books, and if we're honest, in real life as well.
When you're first learning the essential stoner ABCs, you're going to hear a lot of terms that you don't know and have a lot of questions you might be too embarrassed to ask. What's a dab? What's the difference between Sativa and Indica? How do I ask someone if they will sell me pot? These are all common questions, and they're pretty easy to find the answers to. One phrase you might hear if you really start getting into the culture of cannabis, though, is "brick weed." What does brick weed mean, though? Is it a good thing? Is it bad? Should I be buying brick weed, and if I do, how much should I pay for it? Don't worry, we've got you covered. We'll run through the basics and calm all of your cannabis questions and answers.
In stoner culture, there are a lot of unspoken rules. One of them, which I will speak of now, is that you should never have to pay cash for your first joint. Another is that you always pass the joint around, even if you don't like that person.
Orwell's 1984 was one of the first books to really point out how much words tend to define our reality. Though it may have been a science fiction book, there was a lot of fact to it—and you can see it in a lot of political dialogues currently going on in the American landscape.
Both hash and weed are the most popular cannabis derived products around the world. But what are the number one differences between each of them? And what are the similarities? Which one is better? For people that have never truly been exposed to both at the same time, these can be common questions. In the next mini guide, I'll go through the top characteristics of hash and weed and then it’s up to you to decide which one sounds better!
People may not think so, but there's a ton that revolves around weed. From the history to the art, the process, and everything in between, only those who truly enjoy cannabis can see from this perspective. And for the people who are willing to look deeper and view the artistic side of cannabis, there's a special place just for them... cannabis museums!
There are certain aspects of the "first time you smoked weed" experience that are near universal. Pot smokers can look back and laugh on times when they had too much ganj', felt like they'd figured everything about life out, or the sense of camaraderie that comes when you're relaxed enough to really feel the love between friends.
