Greetings my friends,
We’re now well over a month into the first year of Legalized Adult Recreational Cannabis Use in California, and what can i say? It’s weird and we aren’t sure how we feel about it. There aren’t a lot of shops left and the edibles are getting weaker. There’s an extra 45% in new taxes and many of everyone’s favorite brands are gone, on hold or underground. This is the Legalization Issue and we’re joined in covering what’s happening with the always enigmatic Charlo Greene. We joined Ms Greene in DTLA on the night of the extremely rare Super Blue Blood Moon, (the meet-up of a Blue Moon, super-moon and total lunar eclipse). She’s got a 2nd Season of The Weed on the air and she’s got a great new line up of guests joining her every day.
Dennis Peron lost his battle with cancer at age 72 on January 29th, 2018 and the cannabis world had to mourn one of our most important pioneers. It’s sad to see a legend pass and the work he did for patients advocacy will never be forgotten.
We also cover The Top 10 Innovations and Inventions Using Hemp and the History of Cannabis in Kazakhstan. Our own Siouxsie Q was in Las Vegas for The AVN Awards and let us know just what was going on there when it came to cannabis and edibles.
It’ll be interesting to see what the future brings. Four twenty is only a couple of months away and we aren’t sure what will be allowed yet so it’s hard to say exactly what we’ll be doing in mid-April. Keep reading this magazine to know for sure. We’ve also got product reviews of some truly new innovative ways of medicating and it is fascinating to see what science keeps coming up with. The same great recipe section is here as always and this time we’ve included how to make cannabis butter at home to help you infuse your foods perfectly.
We just got back from San Francisco and this month we’ll be back in Hawaii for The Hawaii Cannabis Expo. Cheech and Chong will be there too so we’re extra excited. It has been interesting to see the vast differences between San Francisco and Oakland in The Bay, and what’s happening in Los Angeles. In The Bay there are lots of legally licensed adult shops with lines going out the door and it’s a totally different vibe.
As always, smile at your budtender, tip your delivery driver, and know your dose.
