Rolling a joint is like driving stick, shooting pool, frying an egg, and tying your own shoelaces: in other words, a skill every self-respecting person should master. But hey, some of my best friends can’t roll a joint to save their lives, so I’m not going to judge you. But I do have one word for you: YouTube. All you have to do is buy an ounce, get online, and devote some time. (If you’re looking to buy said weed in Skyway or Seatac, look no further than Have a Heart. You can check out our online menu for a full selection of strains.) You’ll be rolling a joint shaped like an AK-47 in no time… Whether you fall into the “just learning” camp or the master class, the following videos will be of some interest to you.

Yes, of course I’ve heard Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, would you just pay attention for a minute? Mark, do you remember when we had a bunch of people over to the apartment a few days ago and you were passing around Qui-Bong Jinn? Yeah man, it was hilarious that you kept saying “Use the force” every time you took a hit, but that’s not what I want to talk about. Listen, Mark, Stacey just texted me and she’s got bronchitis. Stacey from work. Yeah, Stacey. She’s got bronchitis, and I think Phil has it too. And, honestly, Mark, my throat is a bit scratchy. And.

There are so many different ways to consume legal marijuana in Washington state – from bongs to joints to edibles to topicals, pretty much any way you can think of to get that sweet, sweet THC from the marijuana plant into your system is a valid way to get stoned. And sometimes, sometimes you just want to roll up a big, fat blunt and pass it around a circle with your best buds.

Three Pot Faux Pas to Avoid

Three Pot Faux Pas to Avoid

As fans and connoisseurs of Washington state’s legal, recreational marijuana, we’re a pretty easy going bunch. Nobody likes being hassled, and most of the folks who filter in through Belltown’s favorite marijuana dispensary are a pretty “go-with-the-flow” bunch. We’re also all members of society, and legal weed society, much like any other society, has some rules, guidelines, or etiquette that it’s important to follow so as not to harsh the mellow air around those of us who partake in the Seattle pot scene. These are three pot faux pas to avoid: Don’t steal lighters! Lighters aren’t cheap. Yeah, it can be a little funny to hide a lighter from someone who’s just finished off a bowl of [ ] or [ ], but nobody likes a lighter thief. When you’re done smoking, return the tools to their rightful owners. Respect No Smoking Signs! The legal marijuana laws in Washington state are pretty fantastic, but one thing that isn’t okay is smoking in public, at a bar, in a concert venue or a movie theater. Likewise, you should never smoke at someone’s house unless you’ve received specific permission to do so. Common courtesy goes a long way. No camping! We’re not talking about driving up to the Cascades, pitching a tent and napping in a hammock, no this about when the pipe or joint comes to you in the circle. Puff, puff, pass is a good rule of thumb, and a great way to avoid getting caught up in a story or joke while the joint is burning down to a nub before anyone else can take a...

Dabbing Ain’t Easy: Hardware Explained

You’ve walked by the case maybe a hundred times by now. You always look at it, maybe just a quick glance, maybe a longer examination before moving back to the bags of flower that you’re used to. “Next time,” you say to yourself, “next time I’m going to get some concentrate. Just as soon as I figure out how to use it.” With dabbing, there is a bit more hardware involved than just buying a bag of weed and a blunt wrap, but with this quick guide to dabbing hardware, you will have a good primer on the kind of equipment you need to enjoy the best shatter Washington state has to offer. The Rig This is the glass piece that’s going to hold both the water to cool down your vapor, and the nail. Larger rigs are going to provide a smoother experience with a little less of a flavor punch, while smaller rigs might be a little more heavy on your lungs. Choose a rig that fits your lifestyle, and matches the environment in which it will be used. The Nail This might be your most important piece of hardware as it’s the part you heat up and use to vaporize your wax concentrates. Some people prefer titanium models, while others worry about the metal releasing toxins at the high temperatures required to vaporize the oil and instead choose a quartz model. In the end, it’s up to you, but maybe opt for titanium if you often find yourself dropping things as the quartz is easier to break. A Heat Source There are two ways you can...
