The Creativity Thinking Journal is a fun high activity for 420

The Creativity Thinking Journal is a fun high activity for 420

Urban Hippie
Like many others, I have an affinity for notebooks, journals, planners — any empty lined-and-bound book, I'm in. If you've ever bought a fresh notebook while others sat at home, waiting for your notes or doodles or sketches, don't worry. I'm the same way. It's this longtime love of notebooks that stopped my finger from scrolling through Facebook when I reached an ad for the Pilgrim Soul notebook. In block letters, the brand and notebook itself politely asked me to "Please use this journal when you are high."  Pilgrim Soul's Creativity Thinking Journal is meant to pique one's imagination while stoned. I always strive to flex my creativity in my work and personal life — and seeing as it's close to 420, I wanted to try the journal for myself. Read more...More about Reviews, Cannabis, Journal,
How weed affects painful sex

How weed affects painful sex

Please consult a healthcare professional before using any product and check your local laws before making any purchasing decisions. Sealed Lips is Mashable’s series on pelvic pain, an experience rarely discussed but shockingly common. People have been putting weed up their vaginas for centuries, so I figured I'd try it too. Painful sex is a widespread issue that most people with vaginas are hesitant to openly discuss; I myself didn't acknowledge that it affected my life this much until very recently. With the boom in cannabis-based intimacy products, thanks to a nationwide push to legalize marijuana, many people, including myself, are turning to weed to self-medi
Seth Rogen launched a weed brand, and the site immediately crashed

Seth Rogen launched a weed brand, and the site immediately crashed

Urban Hippie
Seth Rogen announced the launch of his cannabis brand and the internet loved it so much, the site immediately went down.  The actor/filmmaker/stoner and his longtime creative partner, Evan Goldberg, announced the launch of their cannabis company Houseplant on Monday. The name combines the brand's two main products: "House" goods like ceramic ashtrays and lighters, and weed (plant) strains curated by the two Pineapple Express writers.  "If you know anything about me at all, it's probably that I really love weed," Rogen said in a  video announcing the brand's launch. "But what you probably don't know about me is that I've been working on my own weed company for the last ten years."  Read more...More about Weed, Seth Rogen, Culture, and Web Culture Source: Marshable
What’s the deal with nano weed edibles?

What’s the deal with nano weed edibles?

Please consult a healthcare professional before using any product and check your local laws before making any purchasing decisions. Edibles are always a gamble, but up-and-coming nanotechnology in the cannabis space may make popping a weed gummy a more predictable experience. As someone who lives in a state where marijuana is recreationally legal and regularly consumes potent cannabis products, I like to think that I have a relatively high tolerance for weed. Edibles, though, are a wild card; it’s difficult to find a consistent happy medium between not feeling anything at all or getting too high and being too aware of my eyelids.  Read more...More about Cannabis,

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
