What’s in Your Stash? Barry Herzberg, Co-Founder of Rylie’s Sunshine

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and raised in New Jersey, Barry Herzberg began smoking cannabis in 1972 when he was just 15 years old. By the time he entered college he was admittedly selling poundage, meeting supply and demand of the world’s most beloved and illicit herb.

After college he moved to California and became a salesman, barking everything from Porsches, to vacuums, to telephones, when he came full-circle back to cannabis.

After partnering with Felix Hall on a series of five dispensaries, Pacific Green Pharms, in 2010, Herzberg eventually founded Original Nectar, a cannabis oil extraction company in California. He then teamed up with Jae Maedler to found Rylie’s Sunshine, a concentrate company inspired by young cannabis advocate and cancer survivor, Rylie Maedler, Jae’s daughter – just recently named one of the top Women of Weed by High Times.

Diagnosed with severe sciatica and scoliosis in 2007, Herzberg became unable to work due to debilitating pain, and was prescribed opiates. Physical therapy helped him dodge the surgical knife, with cannabis relied upon and realized as his medicine for

Is Marijuana a Gateway Drug? The Truth About the Gateway Theory

Many arguments support the hypothesis that cannabis is a hazardous substance which only leads to further drug abuse. This is dubbed as the gateway theory.

If you read an article on this topic on a pro-cannabis website, they will of course side against the gateway theory, with some very persuasive arguments.

Other, more mainstream, publications tend to support this theory.

But what is the real truth: Is cannabis really a gateway drug?

As weed becomes more and more available worldwide, this could be reframed that the gateway theory is more of a social issue than a real “addiction” problem.

Cannabis gateway drug theory

The term gateway drug is very simple to understand—gateway drug is a substance that ultimately leads one to experiment with more “advanced” and dangerous narcotics.

Gateway theory originally gained momentum during the cannabis prohibition era, and back then, people started claiming that mild drugs (like cannabis) make users more open to try out more potent substances.

However, early on in the prohibition, they were also saying that smoking cannabis will turn you into a crazed killer, …

420 Vancouver 2019 – Cypress Hill headlining historic 25th anniversary

This year’s 420 Vancouver will be historic for many reasons. Not only does 2019 mark the 25th anniversary of Vancouver’s world-famous 420 protest and festival (protestival?), it’s the first 420 Vancouver since Canada legalized cannabis last October. With so much to celebrate, it’s hard to think of a better headliner than Cypress Hill, one of […]

Everyone I’ve spoked to about this tells me it was not a normal experience.

Okay, so I smoke on occasion and have gotten high enough times to know what being high is. My tolerance is relatively low because I don’t smoke too often.

I went over to a friends house and took a bong rip. One bong rip is usually enough to get me high but this one was different. I felt pins and needles all over my body, minor brain zaps, at one point I was just quiet and the only noises I focused on was the tiking of the two clocks in the house and him ssshing his dog to sleep – it felt like hypnosis. My perception of the things around me was skewed, the coffee table was closer, I felt like I was shrinking, and the house felt like it was swaying. I got really paranoid too – but I am not sure if that was because this experience was completely unexpected as a “high” or if it was the effect of whatever weed that was. I told him what I was experiencing and he told me that the experience

Potency and design will determine the winners in the cannabis industry

There nothing like a strong, potent strain and some well designed smoking utensils to make you happy at the end of every day.

Even though I firmly believe that not every place and city should have smoking lounges because all of the one’s in Amsterdam are overcrowded and overpriced, Barcelona really made the best of their situation.

A couple of weeks ago I was in Spain, spending my time in Barcelona and reporting on the Spannabis festival. I simply couldn’t miss their cannabis clubs as they were all over the city.

Seeing how I already visited Amsterdam a couple of times, seeing the cannabis scene in Barcelona really gave me a different view. In hindsight, I believe that you can make weed clubs work.

All you really need is good weed with decent prices, and – more importantly, a seriously good designer.

Top shelf cannabis

As I was saying, good weed is one of the precondition to open a successful weed club – and that’s exactly what the Dr. Resin club had to offer.

I bought 3 grams of …
