Vaping has become the most versatile way to get baked. Cumbersome, smelly pipes and lighters have taken a backseat to the easy portability and electronically charged convenience of the vaporizer. What was once reserved for the most limited of conditions has made its way into our daily lives. No longer must we smoke in parking lots before entering facilities, or wait until we are home to get baked. With the breakthrough of vaporizers, there are no barriers determining where you can get high.
The trend of utilizing hemp in beauty and skincare products has steadily increased throughout the past few years.

Long before PAX and Grenco Science,you had to depend on your wits to get high. There was a time when there was no bodega on the corner where a friendly immigrant sold you EZ Wider with a smile. In that era, there was no Amazon Prime to deliver the newest vape technology with free delivery. It was a time some refer to as the stone age of marijuana. It began at the turn of the 20th century. With the immense migration of multiple races, creeds, and religions into the massive urban centers of the great United States of America came a level of pot smoking ingenuity that would evolve into the multibillion dollar weed paraphernalia industry. As Apple began in a garage, many great weed ideas began in tenements in the south Bronx in the 1920s. People couldn't afford the ivory pipes the upper east side aristocrats used. While we are all thankful for America’s great consumerist ideology, there are times today when a stoner feels like he is stuck in the early 20th century, with nothing to turn to but his wits and creative juices infused with THC.
Have you ever sat down with friends, your significant other, or just by yourself, to pick something to watch on TV? More to the point, have you ever sat there and spent the whole time you meant to be watching TV watching previews for an hour, unable to decide on what to watch? This happens to me all the time. Even when I am not stoned. It all comes down to data. How informed are you? Where can I turn to when I need a real recommendation? Sure, I could buy in to the notion that Netflix or Amazon have their amazing algorithms that determine just the right content for you to watch, but that works like shit if you have 10 family members and friends mooching off your account.
If it's not posted on Instagram, did it really happen? In other words, if one weed Instagram account didn't post his epic hammerhead shark blunt, did it ever exist? Cannabis culture has exploded over the past few years, and the impact has not missed the Instagram community. Looking for pictures of some beautiful bud? We got it. Appreciate the art of glassblowing? We have something for you too. Located all over the world, the people behind these Instagrams come from all walks of life. One thing they do share though, is a passion for weed, in all shapes and forms. So sit back, relax, roll one up, and scroll through the dopest weed instagrams.
What to watch when you’re stoned is as complicated as which strain of marijuana best suits your personality, or what your favorite color is. It’s a personal thing. Depends on the type of day you’re having, who you’re hanging out with, you get it. Then there is the more pressing questions. Did you put a towel by the door? Is the ionizer on? Is it a movie that you can snack through out, or will there be a break in the action to order some take-out. Are you on a couch, sitting on the floor, or like me, in your classic lazy boy chair? Every detail can matter. Most importantly, what are you smoking? Because I cannot in good conscience let you view most of the movies on the list without at least having some CBD by your side.
TV and weed are a marriage made in heaven. Entertaining without being too demanding and available literally everywhere, television is the easiest way to kill a few hazy hours. It's only natural that stoners should want to see themselves reflected in their favorite medium. As legalization slowly but surely creeps across the US, we're sure to see weed represented in pop culture in new and unexpected places, but stoner characters have always been at home on the small screen. Whether you're planning a 4/20 Netflix marathon or just bored and couch-locked with a vape pen, here's a roundup of the greatest stoner TV shows of all time.
There are more people smoking more weed now than ever before. Most of that product is being smoked by all sorts of great new tech like the Pax or the G-Pen. But the classic rolled joint will never go out of style. Conservative estimates are more than eight and a half billion joints are smoked in this country annually. Rolling paper sales exceed the $100 million mark, and legal pot sales are over $5 billion. Corporate America is eyeing, what some say, will soon grow to a $40 to $100 billion overall marijuana industry market from product to paraphernalia. The fashion industry is looking at marijuana induced ideas from colors to stash pockets. The government is eyeing giant tax revenues and Wall Street is looking for the next great thing. All of this attention can often make one lose sight of how it all began. It was simply a little product rolled in fine paper grade, to give you a smooth seal and slow burn. Nothing will ever be as simple or authentic as it was in the golden era of rolling paper.
Possibly the only show dedicated to marijuana, Weeds had a solid run on Showtime from 2005 to 2012. Within its 8 seasons, there were many guest stars who came and went faster than it would take you to smoke a bowl of Nancy’s MILF weed. But just because these wonderful actors spent such a short time on the show does not mean they do not get to be celebrated! From an Olsen twin to Alanis Morissette and even Snoop Dogg, the people who have graced the set of Weeds may have been paid in multiple forms of green!
