4/20 isn't just a 'stoner' holiday. It's an opportunity for activism.

Urban Hippie
At my college, 4/20 was marijuana Christmas. Every year at that time, people would go outside, put on their worst possible pants, turn up the jam band radio stations (String Cheese Incident, baby!!!), and smoke up. As much as I loved seeing my fellow classmates roll down grassy hills, the 4/20 of 2019 has become more than a traditional stoner's holiday. It's also an incredible opportunity to advocate on behalf of legal marijuana, whether for medical or recreational purposes. Want proof? Just browse through some of the material under the #Happy420 Twitter hashtag. With multiple Democratic presidential candidates now pushing for the full or partial legalization of marijuana, 2019 has already been a banner year for the legal weed movement.

Is it OK to be 420 friendly on main?

Urban Hippie
It's 4/20 baby!!! It's Saturday, you're lit, brain perfectly calibrated to toasted, sparking your joy, blowing smoke rings so on point it feels criminal not to share on your Instagram story. But something stops you from posting. And it probably sounds like the voice of your D.A.R.E. teacher yelling about how posting pictures of pot online can get you arrested and ruin your career. "Even if you just post one picture, it comes back," said Anjela, who is very much not a D.A.R.E. teacher. Preferring to keep her full name separate from her online weed-sona, she's better known as Koala Puffs, a weedfluencer with over half a million Instagram followers.  Read more...More about Twitter, Marijuana, Culture, Elon Musk, and Social Media Source: Marshable

Make your own weed butter with the Levo I — on sale for the first time ever

Been thinking about making your own CBD gummies? It's easier than you think. The Levo I is a DIY oil and herb infuser that sits right on the counter.

The team at Levo has compiled a list of their best recipes, from plant-based mac and cheese and peanut butter dog treats to DIY lip balm and exfoliating coffee body scrub. If you've always

Here's the difference between CBD and THC

Urban Hippie
Whether you're trying to master the art of joint rolling or just want to try to alleviate a sore back, every cannabis user should know the difference between CBD and THC.  TL;DR: THC will get you high. CBD probably won't. But it's really more complicated than that.  What are cannabinoids? Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds that interact with receptors found throughout the body to achieve certain physiological effects.  Scientists have identified over 100 different cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, but the ones you'll most commonly hear about are delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).  Read more...More about Marijuana, Weed, Weed Legalization, Culture, and Web Culture Source: Marshable
