The History of Cannabis

I lied to you. I promised that this week, I’d write something light after that post about the history of cannabis prohibition which was followed by that piece about the endocannabinoid system, and yet here I sit, about to write something about the history of cannabis. So, I apologize. However, in my never-ending fight to […]

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

By Faith Frazier - Saturday, September 8th, 2018
No Comments

I’m so, so sorry for throwing two blogs like this one at you back-to-back. Last week’s post was a little dry because we talked about the history of cannabis prohibition, and I’m afraid this week’s post about the ECS isn’t going to be much better. I promise that next week, we’ll go back to talking […]

Why is Marijuana Illegal?

Well, it isn’t in Colorado, but we’re much smarter than those federal people who can’t seem to figure out that pot is just a plant. However, it’s not really their fault when you think about it because ignorance is an insidious thing when it gets intrenched, and that’s what Washington has been dealing with for […]

Dealing with your Friendly Neighborhood Dispensary Budtender

By Faith Frazier - Saturday, August 25th, 2018

I have strict rules for tipping: at the bar, it’s a dollar per drink, at the restaurant, it’s twenty-percent for awesome service, and a passive-aggressive fifteen-percent for anything less. But the first time I purchased legal weed, I had no idea what to do—there was a tip jar by the register, so when I bought […]

August’s Best Bud of the Month

Kevin Grady Budtender, Product Research Team Member About your Best Bud: Kevin is everybody’s friend. Seriously. Everyone who comes in here gives him a warm hello or a wave as if he’s Norm from Cheers; Kevin is the only budtender I know who has groupies. And that makes sense because he’s the salty bartender type […]

Dispensary FAQs

As a budtender, I’ve heard them all: Is marijuana instantly addictive? Will this stuff make me see flying animals? Would you please mail some of that marijuana sex spray to me here in South Africa? For real, I’ve answered all these questions, and I tried my best to do so with a straight face. And […]

Total THC

Occasionally, I’ll write one of these blogs, Faith will post it, and then I’ll realize I forgot something important. It’s frustrating. And it happened a few weeks ago when I told you how to tell the good from the bad when it comes to flower (for a refresher, click HERE) because I didn’t say anything […]

710 in Durango

By Faith Frazier - Saturday, July 7th, 2018
No Comments

7/10 is a lesser-known stoner’s holiday than 4/20, much in the same way St. Patrick’s Day takes a backseat to Octoberfest for people who prefer to celebrate beer. Hell, I won’t name names, but there were at least two budtenders with whom I spoke before writing this who had no idea that 7/10 was a […]

CBD in Durango

By Faith Frazier - Saturday, June 30th, 2018

CBD stands for “Cannabidiol.” I wanted to say that right off the bat because most people think “CBD” is an acronym that stands for something (like “cannabis, because duh”), but it’s not—it’s simply an abbreviation, just like “THC,” which stands for “tetrahydrocannabinol.” But what CBD does is more important than what it means: Cannabidiol is […]

How to Identify Quality Marijuana

By Faith Frazier - Saturday, June 9th, 2018
No Comments

Part of me wants to say, “go to The Greenery and look at our marijuana because that’s what quality looks like,” but I’m not going to do that to you. I’ve been writing these blogs long enough to assume that I’ve built up a bit of ethos with at least one of you, and I […]
