The 10 Best Marijuana Dispensaries in Portland, Oregon

Perhaps due to the sheer timing of cannabis legalization passing at the same time Portland, Oregon’s cultural reputation was drawing in peak numbers of ex-pat creatives seeking a hip, left-of-center and locally-sourced home, the recreational cannabis scene has rapidly developed into a sophisticated industry. The level of thought put into designing stylish shops and the strictness of testing surpasses standards set in other legal states, and customers’ experiences extend far beyond the shop doors with infused dinner events and consumption-friendly house parties. If you haven’t visited Portland, you haven’t fully experienced legal pot cannabis culture yet.

The Scientific Shop That’s Changing the Way We Buy Cannabis

Many shops in Oregon began as medical shops in anticipation for a time when they could switch to rec. Farma brought their medicinal approach into the retail realm, educating customers while they shop the pristine glass cases in the bright, white interior. At Farma, the array of sample buds are labeled with varying shades of red and blue to indicate the degree of energetic uplift or relaxing heaviness, …

Too High for This

Eat, sleep, and CBD are all great ways to come down from cannabis if you get too high. “I’m freaking out man, talk me down.” These aren’t usually the words you hear when you’re smoking bud with your buds. But, that doesn’t mean that it can’t happen. Weed is getting stronger, and the effects of […]

Just Say No to the Community Safety Unit

British Columbia’s NDP government is promising a Community Safety Unit to enforce cannabis legalization.  How Orwellian. A new whole bureaucracy to enforce cannabis laws. So much for the argument that prohibition was a waste of taxpayers money. Somehow, governments in Canada have made legalization a boondoggle as well. These people really do deserve to be locked […]

Can You Smoke Weed In Antarctica?

What a time to be alive! Not only is the number of U.S. states with legal recreational weed on the rise—not to mention entire countries like Canada and Uruguay—it’s never been easier to travel to those places to partake in the consumption of cannabis. Checking off places and dream activities is almost a form of social currency nowadays with flights as fast and cheap as they are, and getting stoned in different places is high up there.

At the nexus of these bucket lists and country counts is The Big One: smoking weed in Antarctica.

Making it to Antarctica is the traveler’s version of a runner completing their first marathon. It’s one of the few places on the planet that’s still prohibitively expensive and challenging to reach, with trips to South America preceding costly ice-breaker voyages that only run for a few months out of the year. Having the time, funds, and durability to get to the South Pole isn’t something every wanderer can claim.

But if you are going to go through the effort to check off Antarctica …

Some States Still Hate

Cannabis legalization took another step forward in the United States as Oklahoma became the 30th state to pass a medical cannabis law. This should show you how bought out the countries political leaders are. They’re owned by big pharma and other special interest groups that have their own plans for the American people. That can be […]
