How to find the best temperature for your high-tech weed vape

Urban Hippie
This post is part of our High-tech High series, which explores weed innovations, and our cultural relationship with cannabis, as legalization in several U.S. states, Canada, and Uruguay moves the market further out of the shadows. Cannabis users have always been fine-tuning their experience. Rolling a joint tighter or grinding bud finer will result in a different high, so it's no surprise that users want that option when it comes to vaping. So what's the best temperature to vape at? That depends on what you want out of your high. Thanks to the rise of sate-level legalization in the U.S., vaping cannabis went from being a somewhat clunky and niche experience to a convenient and discreet norm. Whether you're vaping oil or flower, the high tech gadgets being produced today allow users to cura...

Local news reporters are pros at dealing with the unexpected while on duty. And, as displayed in this clip, sometimes they're too good. KMTV journalist Cameron Tucker was reporting on an illegal cannabis grow in a quiet neighborhood in Kent, UK, when a brilliant teen decided to brilliant troll the live news report. SEE ALSO: This scene in 'A Quiet Place' looks like it's straight from 'The Office' Watch the back of the shot. A young man emerges from an alley holding a large green plant. He spots the camera, acts surprised, and runs off down the road. Tucker didn't even flinch. Of course, the plant does not appear to be cannabis. The kid was clearly pulling a prank on Tucker — masterfully, if we do say. Read more...More about Marijuana, Prank, Teen, Culture, and Web Culture Source: Ma

It's time to stop 'celebrating' 420

It's time to stop 'celebrating' 420

Urban Hippie
Today is April 20, affectionately known by many as 420. It's the unofficial day for celebrating all things weed. But it's 2018, and it's time to take a step back from the haze of smoke and realize that 420 has become a bad internet holiday — even worse than April Fools' Day.  Brands that would have once fired someone for testing positive for THC now tweet funny jokes about the munchies. People demonstrate by toking up in public. Cannabis companies push their products, and media companies fire off any number pot-related articles to get that sweet, sweet weed traffic.

Silicon Valley is no stranger to cannabis culture, so it's no surprise that tech companies are driving innovation in the pot world. And guess what? They've got some seriously impressive products. When the state of Colorado passed Amendment 64 in 2012, legalizing recreational marijuana for adults in January of 2014, they opened up a world of possibilities. Legalization created countless new industries in which companies could openly innovate without fear of being shut down for working with an illegal substance.  SEE ALSO: Colorado Girl Scouts can sell their cookies in front of marijuana dispensaries now Read more...More about Tech, Marijuana, Cannabis, Weed, and Evergreen Source: Marshable

Las Vegas airport installs marijuana trash cans so tourists can ditch their weed

What you smoke in Vegas, unfortunately, has to stay in Vegas. Visiting a pot-friendly state such as Nevada now offers tourists a whole new legal experience, thanks to the recreational sale of cannabis. But what do you do with any leftover weed you may have before heading back home where marijuana laws may not be so lax? While you should absolutely give your excess weed to a dear friend or responsible stranger in need, some tourists often forget they're carrying, only to find out the hard way in airport security. Las Vegas' McCarran Airport now has a fix for that. The airport has installed 10 large, green "amnesty boxes," so people can ditch their leftover pot (or other drugs) before heading into the airport, the Associated Press reports.  Read more...More about Marijuana, Airport, Travel L

Weed and yoga might just be a match made in heaven. But despite pot's legal status in Denver, "ganja yoga" isn't permitted. Well, unless you get stoned yourself and then go to a yoga class. But maybe there's another option on the way... Owners of the Utopia All Natural Wellness Spa and Lounge submitted a social consumption application on Wednesday to the city of Denver in hopes of becoming the first "fully licensed, state-legal cannabis spa." Which means you'll be able to get baked and relax on the premises.

Two cops from Toronto got themselves in a batch of trouble on Sunday when they allegedly ate some marijuana edibles while on duty, got really stoned, and were forced to call for help. The CBC reports that the two officers, who are part of 13 Division, have been suspended pending an investigation. Over the weekend, the Toronto police raided a pot dispensary, which is apparently where the cops copped the edibles.  SEE ALSO: Vermont just legalized marijuana. Here's why that's so important. FYI, folks: Ingesting marijuana is not the same as smoking or vaporizing marijuana. Eating pot will get you WAY more stoned. Professionals suggest waiting a solid two hours after ingesting edibles before taking more, because the onset of effects can be quite slow. Read more...More about Police, Canada, Mari
