This year’s sixth annual NOCO Hemp Expo hit record numbers of attendees at its sold-out event in Denver, Colorado. Last weekend I was among over 10,000 people in attendance at the conference. Just like the hemp industry is growing rapidly, NOCO has grown into the world’s largest gathering of hemp industry professionals in the world—in only six years!

Did you know you can make your own cannabis-infused goodies at home without the smell or mess?  It’s easy, healthy, and you control the dosage. The Plan.  Before you begin, start with the end in mind.  What do you wish to achieve with this dish or recipe?  First, if you plan to entertain friends, use a strain that has a pleasant psychoactive effect to ensure plenty of laughs.

March 22nd, 2017

Featured Photo Credit: Leafly  Slipping on your hiking boots and hitting the trails is an excellent way to stay healthy, but it takes more than just a good pair of shoes to keep you going all day. Whether the hike is at a beginner’s pace or perhaps something more advanced, a mindfully made edible can enhance the experience by invigorating the senses and energizing the body with its healthy, natural ingredients. First, the cannabis-infused base you’re going to need for all of these recipes: cannabis oil. Coconut oil is an excellent choice when it comes to cannabis infusion due to its high fat... Read More

Edible Indulgence and the NFL

January 30th, 2017

Photo Credit: pixaby.com Why does the National Football League (NFL) deny their players the right to use marijuana instead of habit-forming opioids?  That is the billion dollar question!  While NFL players continue to be suspended for cannabis use with just 35 nanogram of THC per milliliter, consider the fact, the Olympics allow four-times that amount for athletes around the world in the biggest competition on the planet. Crazy, right? So, what’s a football fan to do…watch the game high, of course! Edibles are a best bet for an evening of high-stakes football.  Here’s what to expect in... Read More

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

December 3rd, 2014

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I thank you for joining me here each week—your questions, comments, and support have been more than I imagined. In the past four weeks, I have talked about what legal cannabis means in Boulder. What to ask at a dispensary, how to approach a budtender, and to never be afraid to ask questions. I want to shift directions and talk about the questions I hear the most.”What products do you like the most?” or “Which one would you choose?” Each Wednesday between now and Christmas, I will share with you some of my favorite products.... Read More

Dispensary Etiquette: The Right Way To Shop For Cannabis

November 26th, 2014

The art of being a budtender is making customers feel comfortable and excited about purchasing cannabis. There are many elements that dispensaries provide to make these emotions happen: flowering house plants, relaxing music, local artwork, a shop dog, and much more. The one element that is out of the dispensary’s hands is how customers interact with their staff and the other patrons. With emotions flying, I can understand how you can get carried away or find yourself in your own world. Whether it’s your first time or you are a veteran shopper, consider the following elements that you bring... Read More

The Difference Between Medical and Recreational Dispensaries

November 19th, 2014

I ask for two things when a new or returning patient enters the medical dispensary: a red card and a valid photo ID. When the person informs us they don’t know what a red card is, it is the first sign that they are looking for our recreational shop. Now that marijuana is a recreational substance, both Colorado residents and tourists are getting even more curious! Although dispensaries are open to the public, there are two types of stores for two types of consumers. We often hear, “well, what’s the difference between the two shops?” Let’s look into the most significant differences... Read More

Five Things You Need To Know: Cannabis in Colorado

November 5th, 2014

Marijuana in Colorado just isn’t what it was in Vermont. I mean that in the most wonderful of ways. Cannabis has been a part of my life for over ten years, but when I relocated to Colorado in 2012, my perspective changed. The pot sold in dispensaries is grown by horticulturists who have tailored the cannabis plant, providing classic strains and creating new ones. It’s truly one giant experiment that starts in seed and ends in indulgence. Without trying to sound like a Disney movie, it’s a whole new world! With a new world comes curiosity and even fear. I intend to explore with... Read More
