Project Playlist: How to Find the Right 420 Tunes

If you’re old enough, you may remember the terrific agony of combing through your music collection in an attempt to make the perfect mixtape. Each song had to be meticulously placed, the entire playlist had to flow seamlessly and putting an artist on there more than once was a cardinal sin. Gestures of that magnitude were typically reserved for significant others or potential significant others and were considered a big deal — especially if you included your own customized cover art.

Science Says Don’t Cook With Raw Cannabis

If you’re new to cannabis cooking and are ready to dump a ton of fresh bud straight into a brownie mix, stop! This is probably a bad idea, and science is here to tell you why.

Raw cannabis probably won’t get you high

Studies have shown that there are three active ingredients, or cannabinoids, that produce the effects of cannabis that you’re most likely familiar with: THC, CBD and CBG.

But they don’t start life this way.

Most people at least somewhat familiar with weed will probably be familiar with THC and CBD for their ability to get you high. But when ingested in a raw format they won’t have this effect.

Stoners just don’t need this much stuff

Stoners have long had the reputation for ingenuity. We’ve honed the ability to turn almost any object into a smoking device (see the iconic apple-as-pipe, here in ceramic form), and are well-versed in using common items, like straightened-out bobby pins to clear the bowl in said pipe or a mortar and pestle to break up sticky icky, before grinders became widely available. Rolling joints in Bible pages — although not recommended — became a trope because it became so common. Smoking was illicit, and solutions were homemade. For a long time, marijuana enthusiasts weren’t a desirable market, and we got by.

4/20 deals: These Massachusetts cannabis dispensaries are celebrating with events, specials and more

There’s one day in the month of April that is beloved by cannabis consumers everywhere — the 20th.

 

As legend puts it, the significance of the date has a storied history dating back to the 70′s when a group of high schoolers banded together to search for an abandoned cannabis crop in San Rafael, California. They routinely met at 4:20 p.m. and the time and date have since become recognized as cannabis slang for consumption of the plant.

 

Recognizing the popularity of the date for cannabis consumers, many dispensaries will celebrate the date with events or new products. Here’s what some Mass. dispensaries have planned.
