Cooking with Cannabis

Saturday, February 9th, 2019

I’m not sure why I’ve waited so long to write a blog like this one because customers ask me frequently about cooking with the cannabis they buy in our Durango dispensary. Maybe it’s because we sell about seven billion different types of edibles, and it might be a bit pointless to make an edible when […]

Different Marijuana Strains

Saturday, February 2nd, 2019

Please keep an open mind when I tell you this: it’s very important to stop thinking that you really like a specific strain just because you “tried it this one time” and really liked it. And it’s also important to stop thinking that you don’t like a strain because you didn’t like it that “one […]

Two New Ways to Dab

Saturday, January 26th, 2019

I like whiskey, but I like sipping it; it’s probably been a decade since my last shot. And maybe that’s why it took me so long to get into dabs—the idea of smoking a quarter-gram of live resin all at once seemed superfluous, just like chugging scotch. But taking dabs is a budtender prerequisite because […]

Best Bud of the Month: Gracie Grace Gordon, Shop Dog

Saturday, January 19th, 2019

If we’re being honest, our Durango dispensary is more “Durango” than the other shops in town: our owners are FLC grads, and if they’re not here, one is rafting/skiing/biking while the other is fishing, and just about everyone else who works here wears one of those puffy coats that marks a bona fide local. But […]

Marijuana Paraphernalia

Saturday, January 12th, 2019

Do you know the difference between a “pipe” and a “bowl,” or the difference between a “bong” and a “water pipe”? Well, there isn’t one, and that’s the sort of thing that confuses many of our customers. But if you think about it, it’s not their fault: marijuana paraphernalia is used all over the planet, […]

Cannabis Etiquette

Saturday, December 22nd, 2018

Smoking pot is a social thing. It breaks the ice, it forms bonds and friendships, it reminds us that being together is better than being apart. There’s simply something about cannabis culture that’s harmonious and gregarious, peace-loving and friendly, and that’s why I love this plant so much. Think about it: when alcohol comes to […]

Connoisseur Cannabis

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

Lately, I’ve noticed a shift. About a year ago, most shoppers would come in and ask for my “cheapest” cannabis, but now, people are requesting the “best.” I know this change is occurring, but I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because people bought from illegal dealers less than half a decade ago, and back then, […]

December Dispensary Deals

Friday, December 7th, 2018

Quite a few customers who came in on Black Friday were surprised to find that we were offering sales—it’s an odd phenomenon, but for some reason, people think that since we sell marijuana here, we’re different than all the other retail stores in Durango, but we’re not. We accept debit cards, we offer coupons, we […]

What to do if you get too high.

Saturday, December 1st, 2018

We’ve all been there, me included. I’ve found myself under the covers in a little ball after too many edibles; I’ve been out with friends after a dab too many thinking that the world was out to get me. Everyone I know has a “dude, I got way too high this one time” story because […]

Marijuana Myths

Saturday, November 24th, 2018

I want to say this outright: CBD does not cancel the high that comes from THC. At least once a day, one of my customers will tell me that they don’t want anything with CBD in it because it “takes away the high,” and at this point, I’m thinking about making a sign that says […]
