10 Best Things to Do While Stoned

What are some fun things to do while stoned? This is a question that has an answer many may not expect. Today’s stoner is not the lazy jobless bum on the couch that reefer madness and decades of negative anti-cannabis propaganda has painted a picture of. Many stoners today are driven by the pursuit of knowledge and happiness. They want to help facilitate and usher in a much-needed change in our way of life. From spirituality to the environment and virtually everywhere in between the cannabis consumers of today are changing the stereotypical stoner stigma of yesteryear.
With that in mind, many of us still love to get stoned. Getting stoned is an escape from the pressures and weights of daily life. Instead of our minds being blocked by the worries of paying bills on time, remembering important dates, and keeping general life in order cannabis allows many people a slight release of these responsibilities. People who consume cannabis can focus on a wide array of other things they enjoy while confidently knowing things like bills and other general aspects of life will remain there waiting for them always.
Cannabis consumers tend to enjoy many of the same things. Wizards, space, spirituality and mysticism, environmental issues and technological advancements, the list goes on when it comes to things to explore while you’re in an elevated state of mind.  Here are 10 things to do when high!

Explore Your Spirituality

Exploring your spirituality sometimes is more than just looking at how many times or if you go to church. It’s more than your religious point of view. Morality, minimalism, evil, money, the afterlife, and more all help explain the spirituality of an individual. Where does life come from and what is its purpose? What is my goal in life? These are all journeys you can take into exploring your spirituality.
Keep an open mind even outside of particular religions you are accustomed to. Countless souls before you have embarked on the journey to discover a deeper understanding of their spirituality. Cannabis can help facilitate the calmness and clarity needed to assimilate information that may help you find out more about your spirituality.

Dive into Mysticism

Stand on the board and plunge gracefully into the sea of mysticism while you enjoy a heightened state of mind through cannabis. Mysticism offers many paths to help discover hidden truths in the pursuit of knowledge. Religious ecstasies combined with ideologies such as myths, legends, ethics, magic, and rites frequently help individuals on their path of discovery.
Utilizing the time you have with heightened senses thanks to a balanced endocannabinoid system makes for a perfect opportunity to explore mysticism and all it entails. Learn about the stars, how to read tarot cards, or explore meditation. These are just some of the things you can do to increase your study into mysticism and all it stands to offer.

Learn About Holism

Holism is a word that is commonly applied to ecology, language, and the mental state of mind. It refers to an intimate interconnection that makes independent parts something more allowing them to function as a whole. The general precipice of holism is that properties should be perceived not as parts of the collection but as a whole. Jan Smuts and Alfred Adler can offer extensive insight into holism and the role it plays in the perceivable universe as we know it.

Increase Your Environmentalism

Sociology, ideology, and philosophy are all influencing environmentalism. The perception of concern related to protecting the environment has given birth to the field of environmentalism. Exploring the avenues of preserving the environment and facilitating a greener tomorrow is a great way to spend some of your elevated time. Cannabis consumers are typically very health conscious and environmentally driven contrary to propaganda.
Organics, sustainability, and environmental longevity are all areas of concern for many cannabis consumers. Actively participating in discussion forums, blogging, and vlogging are all great ways to help facilitate information and knowledge about environmentalism. Not to mention they seem to be that much more profound and clearer when the earth plant cannabis is in hand.

Art

Art is a great avenue to explore while in an elevated state of mine. Consuming cannabis can help spark creativity giving you the creative juices needed to create beautiful works of art. Tattoos, acrylic painting, molding clay, working with wood, and many other forms of art can be amplified for greatness thanks to the influence of cannabis.
Art inspired by cannabis isn’t always pictures of pot leaves or joints with faces. Relaxing and achieving a state of mental clarity is essential for any artist looking to create something profound. Perhaps this is why cannabis is so revered amongst the artistic community.

Poetry

Perhaps you’re a poet and didn’t even know it. Give yourself a chance to see how poetically inclined you are the next time you have a sesh. You can write down poetry on your phone, laptop or computer. You can even scribble it on a napkin while sitting in a restaurant. The word you create in your mind could go on to help influence countless others. Poetry isn’t always about rhyming. It’s about getting your point across in a variety of different methods.

Culinary Skills

Practicing your culinary skills while stoned is a winner chicken dinner, literally. Pretty much anyone who consumes cannabis is going to get a case of the munchies. When the munchies come calling don’t sit there bawling and pick up the phone ordering some quick fast food. Instead, head to the kitchen and create some culinary cuisine that you’ll be proud of.
Fresh meats, fruits, and vegetables are not only fun to prepare in a multitude of different methods, but they’re fun to devour as well. You get to practice your culinary skills and at the same time make some great munchies. Maybe it’s time to try that chicken alfredo recipe or that southern fried chicken recipe you’ve been wanting to try. Perhaps you want to make a batch of fresh chicken enchiladas. No matter how you look at it as long as you give it your all you’ll end up with a winner chicken dinner when practicing your culinary skills stoned.

Sex

One of the greatest pastimes possibly of all to do while you’re stoned is to have sex. Sex with a partner is generally better than sex by yourself, but either way will work. Sex is an essential avenue for human health. Without sex certain chemicals in our bodies are not produced as they should be. This can lead to a little insane activity in the brain. Don’t allow your mind to become sexually deprived. Take advantage of your heightened state of relaxation to enjoy sex or even masturbation.

Photography

When consumers are in an elevated state of mind thanks to cannabis, they find that typical things stand out a little more. Photography is a great thing to practice when you’re stoned. When you are under the influence of the cannabinoids found in cannabis you may have a better eye for the shot then when you’re not.
The relaxing and calming attributes of cannabis will sometimes allow people to do more than just stop and smell the roses, it will enable them to remember to take a photograph of the moment to remember forever. Imagine a picture of you smelling a rose while stoned standing in a garden. That picture will last forever meaning you’ll stay stoned for a moment in time eternally. Now that’s deep!

Exercise

The last thing most of us think about is exercise when it comes to getting high. However, this is proving to be something that many cannabis consumers enjoy. People who previously wouldn’t hit the gym or partake in exercise activities because they were self-conscious seem not to give a phuck when stoned.
They don’t worry about what people will say about them or think about them. Instead, they lace up their shoes and start exercising. For someone who has social anxiety going to a gym can be a nightmare. If you remove that social anxiety from the equation, the gym suddenly isn’t that frightening of a place. In fact, all that workout equipment can be quite fun to play with when you’re stoned.

These are only a few suggestions of the best things to do when you’re stoned. Consuming cannabis heightens senses and increases the emotional state of being for many consumers. Take advantage of these good feelings of happiness and apply them to the things you enjoy in life. What are some of the interesting things you like to do when you are high? Let us know in the comments below! We hope you enjoyed our list of 10 elevated activities to do while stoned!

5 Places That are Chill About Cannabis in North America

It wasn’t too long ago that if you got caught growing cannabis plants or in possession of cannabis almost anywhere in the world, you would have faced detrimental legal issues. Today, however, as the movement to legalize cannabis has progressed globally, there are many places where adults over the age of 21 and medical cannabis patients can cultivate their own cannabis at home as well as purchase and consume cannabis with certain restrictions and limitations. Here are 5 of the best states for cannabis consumption in the U.S.

Colorado

Colorado was one of the first states in the United States to allow for legal recreational market. Since 2014 when doors to the first dispensaries opened in the state for adult consumption sales, the state has been a tourist destination at the top of the list of many stoners and consumers alike. Tourists are able to purchase up to 1 ounce of dried flower or the equivalency of other cannabis products.

Washington

Washington state is one of the most vastly beautiful states in the Pacific Northwest according to many. It has become even more beautiful to a lot of folks since they legalized an adult cannabis market in 2012. With a vast variety of outdoor attractions and landmarks, it is a natural attraction for cannabis lovers. According to the government regulatory agency that oversees the program in the state; “Adults 21 years of age or older may legally possess up to one ounce of marijuana, 16 ounces of marijuana-infused product in solid form, and 72 ounces of marijuana-infused product in liquid form.”

Oregon

Whether you are looking for beautiful beaches, vast forests, or towering mountains, Oregon has you covered. If you are looking to get elevated, thanks to Ballot Measure 91, if you are over the age of 21 you can partake in a toke of cannabis. Adults over the age of 21 in the state are able to possess up to one ounce of cannabis or an equivalent amount of concentrates, edibles, and other cannabis-infused products.

California

California is home to the Emerald Triangle, Humboldt County, and the countries first medical cannabis program. Cali is also probably one of the most cannabis-friendly states in the United States. In November of 2017, voters in the state approved a measure that legalized an adult cannabis market in the state. These laws took effect in January of 2018 and dispensaries have been opening their doors ever since. If you are looking to visit Cali and are at least 21 years old, you can legally possess one ounce of bud, or 8 grams of cannabis concentrates.

Nevada

The home of Sin City is also a trendy cannabis destination in the United States. Question 2 passed by way of the majority vote in 2014, and in November of 2016, cannabis officially became legal with restrictions for adults over the age of 21. In the state of Nevada, adults are able to legally possess and purchase either 1 ounce of dried cannabis or an eighth (3.5) grams of cannabis concentrates.

We Can’t Forget Canada

Canada also recently legalized cannabis for adults over the age of 21. This change in law allows for adults over the age of 18 or 19 depending on where you live to possess small amounts of cannabis. In some provinces they have also allowed for home grows. This makes Canada a prime area for cannabis consumption in North America as well!

5 States Where You Can Grow Your Own Cannabis

While many individuals in the U.S. live where they could spend years in jail for cultivating cannabis, others are able to grow freely. Of the 30 plus states that have medicinal cannabis programs and the 10 states that have legalized adult consumption, there are many that also allow for home cultivation. Some however are not as lenient as others. If you are looking to move to a state where you can legally and freely grow, check out the list below which includes the 5 best states in the U.S. for growing cannabis at home.

Maine

Maine legalized medical cannabis in 1999 and voters also approved a recreational market for adults in 2016. Thanks to these changes in the law, adults over the age of 21 are able to grow. Laws allow them to cultivate up to 6 mature plants, 12 immature plants and be in possession of unlimited seedlings in their residents. They must, however, be grown in a locked and enclosed environment unless being transported. There is a 12 mature plant limit per household, however, municipalities have the option of allowing up to 18 plants per household for personal adult consumption.

Michigan

Per the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act of 2008, a caregiver with a registry identification card is able to cultivate cannabis. The law allows them to cultivate up to 12 plants for each registered qualifying patient that they are specified as the primary caregiver for by the state program. Patients are not allowed to cultivate cannabis themselves and cultivation for personal adult recreational consumption is also not permitted. Caregivers are able to cultivate up to 72 cannabis plants total in an enclosed and locked environment.

Nevada

In Nevada, both medical cannabis and recreational cannabis for adults has been legalized and dispensaries are operational. In addition,  if you live more than 25 miles from a dispensary, you are able to grow your own. For adults, there is a 6-plant max limit with up to 12 plants total for a household. For medical cannabis patients who live more than 25 miles from a dispensary, they are able to grow up to 12 mature cannabis plants at once in the privacy of their own home.

Washington

Medical cannabis patients in the state of Washington are able to grow up to 6 mature plants for their medical use. In certain circumstances where a healthcare professional believes this is not sufficient, that limit can be increased. The maximum plant count that a medical cannabis patient in the state can receive is 15 plants. Unfortunately, if you are not a medical cannabis patient in the state you are not able to grow.

Colorado

Colorado was the first state to legalize an adult retail cannabis market. They also allow for growing your own at home. Any adult resident in the state of Colorado is allowed to cultivate up to 6 cannabis plants at any time. This is as long as no more than 3 are in the mature/flowering stage at one time. There is, however, a 12-plant limit per household for adult personal consumption. Colorado residents that opt to grow their own are required to do so in an enclosed and locked environment.
At one time, Colorado allowed for medical cannabis patients or their assigned caregivers to grow up to 99 plants per patient. This law however changed in 2017. The new law allows for medical cannabis patients to grow the same amount of plants at home as recreational consumers. Patients, however, can receive approval for a higher plant count, though if they do, it must be assigned to a medical cannabis dispensary as their caregiver and cannot be grown at home.

Great Ways to Use Up Cannabis Shake Or Trim

Coming up with original ways to use up your shake and trim shouldn’t be too difficult of a task. If it is, then you have way too much shake or trim on your hands. In case you’re not sure what you have lets clarify the difference. Shake is what you get when tiny pieces of bud break off in a container or bag and end up on the bottom of it.
It kind of resembles weed that’s already been broken up. Trim is the excess from harvesting buds and clipping them to manicured perfection. Leaves from trim will have trichomes on them but frequently will not provide the same euphoric buzz that shake will. Either way, if you have some of either on hand, there are many different things you can do with it.

Give it Away

If you’re really feeling generous one of the most sharing and caring things you can do is gift that shake or trim to a friend in need. Maybe all your friends suck, or they just don’t smoke. Whatever the case is if you’re looking for ways to utilize your shake or trim here are a few ways to accomplish that task.

Make CannaButter

Use your shake or trim to make yummy for your tummy delectable cannabutter. Shake or trim works beautifully to make sensational cannabis-infused butter. In return, you’ll have an endless array of culinary treats that you can prepare with an elevated kick from cannabutter.

Make Cannabis Extracts

You can use your trim or shake to make concentrates too! That’s right you can make wax. Depending on your method of extraction you can get anywhere from 50 to 80 g out of a pound of trim or shake depending on its quality. The more trichomes, the better.

Make Cannabis-Infused Oil

Another great idea to help use up that trim or shake is to make it into an oil. Making your own cannabis oil is not only healthy but a great way to utilize that excess herb that’s just going to waste.

Vape it Up

An herbal vaporizer is another excellent way to use up that stash. These devices will allow you to vape the essential oils from the plant without combusting the material which is known to be a little bit harsh at times.

Make an Alcohol Concoction

Using up your cannabis shake or trim is a great idea. You don’t want just to leave the stuff lying around and let it go bad. It does dry up and can and will lose its potency. If you are making wax making oil, making butter and still have trim left over perhaps try throwing some in rubbing alcohol to make a tremendous topical medication or adding some to drinking alcohol to make a great cannabis-infused cocktail for a later date.
What type of creative ways can you come up with to use up your trim or shake?

Canada Legalized – What U.S. Visitors Should Know Before They Head North to Higher Country

Cannabis legalization happened across all of Canada on October 17th, 2018. For adults 18 and older, you can now for take in a wake and bake without the fear of prosecution. The same can’t be said for Canada’s sister to the South.
The United States of America is behind many places in the world including Canada when it comes to ending draconian cannabis prohibition. Politicians and federal authorities tinker and toy with the lives of millions of citizens while just one imaginary line to the north freedom exists. The United States of America is supposed to be united, but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
It’s more like the land of who has the most money. If you want to enjoy cannabis legally, there are only a handful of states in which you can do this on a retail or recreational level. However, if you go to Canada, you can partake in a wake and bake anywhere in the country. Before you go though there are some things you need to know.

Oh Canada, Here I Come

In order to get across the border, you’ll need a valid passport. If you’re going to bring your pet, make sure you have the proper paperwork. Don’t try to bring fruit across the border as that is a big no-no. Cigarettes and booze are available in limited quantities from duty-free stores. Don’t try to take back more than your supposed to though.
Should you be considering taking a gift to Canada, you’ll want to know if that gift is valued at more than $60. This is because if it is, you may be required to pay an additional tax. Driving in Canada is much the same as it ends in America except for some fundamental traffic laws and the speed limit. Speeds are measured in kilometers, not miles so remember its kilometers per hour not miles per hour.
Don’t smoke in a car if you have a minor child or you can find yourself in trouble. Whatever you do don’t ever text or talk on your phone going down the road unless it’s hands-free. You’ll also want to be sure that you have the right cheddar to spend while visiting Canada. US currency is accepted in many places but not everywhere.

There’s Still A Lot to Know Before You Go

If you’re used to roaming all over with your cell phone attached to your face, you better be ready for a wake-up visiting Canada. You could find yourself with excessive phone charges that some refer to as astronomical if you don’t have a pre-existing plan worked out for when you visit Canada.
If you have a criminal record, there is always the chance that you might not be permitted entry into Canada. Canadian border patrol agents can deny anyone entry into Canada. Even a DUI can get you denied.
Travel Insurance for healthcare when visiting Canada is another great idea to invest in. While Canada’s health care system covers a lot of things, it doesn’t include American visitors. If you get sick or hurt while you’re there, you could end up in despair at the costs.

Cheers to Cannabis, Beer, and Taxes Canada

Smoking cannabis is allowed for all adults. This means between the ages of 18-19 and up. Some provinces have laws allowing for the consumption of cannabis starting at 18 while others kick that age a year to 19. Make sure you know the rules in the province or provinces you plan to visit.
If you like to throw back a few beers, then be prepared for a slightly younger crowd than you’re used to in the US. The legal drinking age in Canada varies between 18 and 19 years old depending on what province you’re visiting. So, toss back them beers and say cheers, just be prepared to do so with a slightly younger crowd at some places.
If you’re familiar or used to shopping at dispensaries in the United States, then visiting Canada won’t be that much of a shock when it comes to taxes. There is an additional federal sales tax, and some provinces also add their own tax to things such as hotel and restaurant bills.

Drink, Smoke, Eat, Play, and Be Merry in Canada

Canada offers all kinds of freedoms that you won’t find in the U.S. For America being the land of the free they sure seem to have a lot of rules restricting those freedoms. Maybe with luck, the U.S. will take a play from their neighbor to the north and listen to the people when it comes to cannabis.
The United States of America’s Federal Government started this draconian war on drugs and the attempted irradiation of cannabis. It’s time that they end it. Until then we’ll continue to fight for cannabis rights in America. At least now though we can venture north to enjoy true freedom in Canada from time to time.

INDIVA Master Grower Pete Young announces memoir to be released October 17th

Recreational cannabis goes legal in Canada on October 17th of this year.  It’s also the day Pete Young’s memoir, The High Road: A Pot Grower’s Journey from the Black Market to the Stock Market will be available for purchase through Amazon and Indigo.
Pete Young is a Co Founder and Master Grower of London, Ontario’s first and only Licensed Producer, INDIVA Ltd., and has been a leading voice for Canadian cannabis since the early 1990’s.  Now with a monumental shift to legalization – Pete is releasing his memoir about his life’s passion and what it’s taken for cannabis to finally get to where it is today. The memoir tells Pete’s story of cannabis activism and compassion throughout the last three decades and his fight for the people who rely on cannabis to live their daily lives.  
Pete is the real deal.  There’s just no other way to say it.  In a world where cannabis seems to be taken over by big business, Pete and his dreadlocks can be found shoeless in a t-shirt, walking around a cannabis convention connecting with like minded individuals as he works tirelessly to help ensure that Canadian cannabis is done the right way.  He’s focused on growing the best cannabis and always making his clients well-being the number one priority. For Pete, it’s not about money, it’s about care, compassion and quality medicine, so forget about suits, ties and corporate board rooms – cannabis legalization is for freedom and quality of life.
Pete’s roots in cannabis activism date back more than twenty years, throughout which his involvement and willingness to fight for medical cannabis has taken him on a long journey to the eventual success we are witnessing today.  From growing his own cannabis on rooftops in New York’s Long Island, to founding the London Compassion Society (LCS) in 1995, to becoming Co Founder and Master Grower of a Licensed Producer – Pete has been the voice for Canadian cannabis compassion all throughout his career.  
Pete’s story is one of perseverance, focus and compassion – a real look behind the scenes into the ups and downs of cannabis activism.  The story so far hasn’t been glamorous, and it hasn’t been profitable, but, it has made a difference.
An interesting, insightful read and a breath of fresh air in a cannabis world where all one seems to hear about is stock prices and the latest merger or acquisition.
