The Omura Series X is the perfect eco-friendly vaporizer for beginner cannabis users

Urban Hippie
Omura Series X $99.99 View Product The Good The Omura Series X is gorgeous • sleek • and ideal for minimizing smell • The pre-loaded sticks feel like smoking a joint without the mess or set up • It's more environmentally friendly than other methods The Bad The sticks aren't geared for those who may have a higher tolerance to weed • Like other cartridge-based vaporizers • consumers can't load the sticks with their own weed • If you're sharing with someone else • you'll likely go through a stick quite quickly The Bottom Line The Omura Series X is a vast improvement to the company's first generation vaporizer. While it may not be the first choice for an experienced weed consumer, it's the ideal option for someone just getting started. Read more...More about Reviews,

Please consult a healthcare professional before using any product and check your local laws before making any purchasing decisions. Let's just say, hypothetically, that my cannabis consumption has gone up this year. And we'll wager that, in a global pandemic, perhaps yours has as well.  This is all hypothetical here! Perhaps next year it won't be, as the House just passed a bill decriminalizing weed at a federal level, but I digress.  If you or a friend allegedly enjoy weed and want to treat yourself or them to some fun and/or bougie and/or useful weed-themed gifts, this list is for you.  Read more...More about Cannabis, Culture, and Drugs Source: Marshable
The Furna vape makes swapping between herb and concentrate so much easier

The Furna vape makes swapping between herb and concentrate so much easier

Urban Hippie
Furna Vaporizer $299 CAD, $229 USD View Product The Good The interchangeable oven chambers are incredibly useful. • Being able to flip the mouthpiece around to keep it clean was a thoughtful addition. • Furna's accessories are just as cool as the vape itself. The Bad Less experienced or infrequent cannabis users will probably enjoy the Furna but are unlikely to actually buy it at such a high price point. • The battery died more quickly than anticipated. • Using it is tricky for less experienced cannabis consumers. The Bottom Line The Furna Vaporizer may not be the best choice for someone who doesn't consume cannabis often, but it's great for someone who likes to take their vape on the go.

As soon as my head hits the pillow on stressful nights, my brain becomes a windy race track, thoughts zooming by at 100 mph, commanding my attention. I wanted it to stop.  So for months I tried various cannabis products promising better sleep, hoping that one of them could serve as a red light and stop the buzzy traffic, at least until morning.  Read more...More about Cannabis, Science, and Drugs Source: Marshable
The clear winner of the 2020 election: Drugs

The clear winner of the 2020 election: Drugs

Urban Hippie
The U.S. remains a deeply divided nation in 2020, and likely for many years to come. The presidential election and hundreds of down-ballot races were far closer than most pundits and pollsters predicted.  But in all this deadlocked division and confusion, there's one area of clear consensus: drug policy. In deep red states like South Dakota, purple states like Arizona, and blue states like Oregon alike, voters decided it's time to legalize the use of drugs like cannabis and psilocybin mushrooms. Literally every pro-drug ballot initiative won. In not one case did the usual scaremongering messages break through. It was enough to put you in mind of the classic Onion headline: "Drugs win drug war."  Read more...More about Marijuana, Mushrooms, Culture, Politics, and Drugs Source: Marshab

We made up punny names for New Jersey marijuana dispensaries to cope with election anxiety

Urban Hippie
Listen, it's been a long 24 hours.  As of early Monday morning, there was no clear winner in the 2020 presidential election. We might get an answer today? Who knows. Will democracy survive? LOL, I mean maybe?  But we do know that New Jersey voted to legalize recreational marijuana, along with a number of other states with weed on the ballots. Then we saw this tweet. Every single dispensary in New Jersey is going to be called, like, Da Wise Guys or Goodfellaz, and it’s gonna be a whole lot of fun. — willy 💧 (@willystaley) November 4, 2020 Our broken, exhausted, internet-poisoned brains latched onto this idea. We needed something else to think about. And if you're feeling overwhelmed, tired, and stressed as hell, I recommend making some dumb Jersey dispensary puns. As a Sopranos loving wor

Americans are making progress toward a greener future. Weed-wise, at least.  As of Nov. 3, 2020, marijuana is currently medically legal in 33 states and recreationally legal in 12 states, as well Washington, D.C. Though cannabis remains illegal at a federal level, five states have marijuana measures on their ballots in 2020 — more proof that an "overwhelming majority" of Americans are ready for a more cannabis-friendly country.  This year, a variety of drug reforms are on the ballot in six states and Washington, D.CRecreational marijuana legalization initiatives are up for a vote in Arizona, Montana, New Jersey, and South Dakota. In Mississippi, voters will decide on a medical marijuana initiative that would allow doctors to recommend cannabis for medicinal use to treat a variety of condit

Legal weed is on the ballot in New Jersey on Tuesday, which means a powerful force with soon have to reckon with the fallout of recreational marijuana. That powerful force, of course, is Jersey moms.  Mashable's own Vicky Leta created a pitch perfect impression of a certain New Jersey mom — likely Italian-American, needling, a little neurotic, gossipy, loving to a fault, ultimately kind of fun — reacting to and reckoning with weed's legalization. Here, just watch:  I count every line of this monologue as perfect, but here are three of my favorites because I can: "Who ya doing it with? Oooh, Tommy Cacciatore....Hmm, no surprise there."

Puffco Peak Pro: The most futuristic dabbing device yet

Urban Hippie
Puffco Peak Pro $399.99 View Product The Good Larger capacity in a thinner device • Fast charging • Sturdy redesign The Bad iPhone app can be problematic • Expensive The Bottom Line The best device for the most gourmet form of cannabis consumption — with a price to match. ⚡ Mashable Score 4.5 😎 Cool Factor 5.0 📘Learning Curve 4.0 💪Performance 4.5 💵Bang for the Buck 3.5 When I began a cautious experiment in vaporizing cannabis concentrates two years ago, the Puffco Peak was my first port of call. This $380 device, which looked like a tiny bong you can hold in the palm of your hand, had just launched, and was winning praise for its futuristic design. Concentrates offer more of those crucial cannabis terpenes than basic alternatives like o
