Don’t be a Dope: Even More Pot Faux Pas to Avoid

Don’t be a Dope: Even More Pot Faux Pas to Avoid

We’re back again with another lesson in pot etiquette. It’s a new world with legal cannabis available in Washington and we, your friends at the best pot shop in Belltown, want you to enter the fray with a full education on how to enjoy marijuana, make new friends and not piss off anyone in the process. The best kind of pot smoker is the courteous kind. So whether you smoking flower, concentrates, or eating edibles, remember these tips on how to be the life of the party, without ruining it. 1. Don’t Share if You’re Sick When the joint/bong/pipe is passed, it’s easy to simply accept it and keep it going, but before you share anything, be honest with yourself. Do you have a cold? A few extra sniffles that have been becoming more frequent? No one wants your germs, dude. If you’re not feeling well, feel free to keep that to yourself. Not everyone has healthcare and a simple cold for you could become something completely different for someone else. Not to say you can’t still hang out (as long as you’re not showing signs of the plague), but think ahead and bring your own pipe. 2. Don’t Show Up Empty-Handed There will be times when you are watching a movie or listening to music and someone pulls out their legal cannabis.If they offer to share (and honestly, they should), remember that and be sure to return the favor in the future. Stoners may not remember where they put their keys, but they never forget when someone continuously shows up to enjoy fine marijuana without adding to the community...

Rectify Cannabis Suppositories by Fairwinds

Rectify Cannabis Suppositories by Fairwinds

We’re always up for trying new and innovative ways to use weed. Some of those ways, our younger selves could never have imagined. Two words: Cannabis suppositories. But we’re sure glad someone thought them up!  And Have a Heart weed shop at 115 Blanchard Street in Belltown has them in stock. Fairwinds Manufacturing has created the first cannabis-infused suppository available in Washington. The suppositories are easy-to-use, individually packaged, fast acting, and are not designed to provide a psychoactive effect. The ratio of CBD, THCA and THC are optimized to support relaxation and comfort. And, these suppositories are made with all-natural ingredients like organic cocoa butter, cannabis oil extracted from flower, and natural herbs chosen for their synergistic interaction with cannabis. Rectify Suppositories from Fairwinds – 59.9% THC, 8.1% CBD — $20 for 1.9oz If you’re the type to geek out over the science of suppositories, here’s the 411 from the Fairwinds website: “Studies have shown that suppositories provide a 2x absorption efficiency over inhalation and 3x absorption efficiency in comparison to oral consumption. Vaginal and rectal suppositories are very fast acting, often within 10-15 minutes, with effects often lasting 4-8 hours, however absorption and response varies based on individuals. Avoiding the upper gastrointestinal tract prevents first-pass metabolism by the stomach and liver (which metabolize many different molecules into inactive compounds) allowing the active constituents to reach the blood in much higher concentrations. The liver transforms approximately half of THC ingested into the significantly more psychoactive metabolite 11-Hydroxy-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol. This molecule causes more intense cognitive effects than THC. Vaginal and rectal administration not only avoids these effects, but also allows a much greater...
Nothing Better than the Real Thing: Fake Weed Sucks

Nothing Better than the Real Thing: Fake Weed Sucks

Let’s talk about fake weed, shall we? In Washington State, we’re very lucky that we have easy access to legal, recreational marijuana. Just look at Have a Heart’s menu! Our recreational pot shop sells everything from edibles, to pre-roll joints, to shatter wax and vaping cartridges. So when you’re in downtown Seattle and pondering the big question — “where’s some weed near me?” —  the answer should be pretty clear. But sometimes, you’re far away from your favorite recreational pot shop in Belltown and find yourself with an empty pipe. You may even be — gasp! — in a place where legal weed is still a dream. Far from the doors of Have a Heart in Belltown you look for big, green 21+ signs somewhere, anywhere near you, but alas, none are to be found. Finally, in desperation, you wander into a local head shop and see under the glass some bags of what look like weed labeled “Spice,” “Bonzai,” and “K2.” It’s fake weed, and it sucks. Fake weed has been around for years, but with the rise of state-sanctioned legal weed, more and more bags of this over-the-headshop-counter impostor are popping up in gas stations and corner stores all over the place. There’s no way to really know what’s in these bags of Fake Weed, so it’s a good idea to stay away. In comparison? Washington State knows everything about everything in Have a Heart’s pot shop. Some users turn to synthetics because they think it won’t show up on a drug test, others live in areas where there’s no readily available access to legal marijuana dispensaries. Whatever the reason that...
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...
What to Watch: Our Favorite Stoner Flicks for 4/20

What to Watch: Our Favorite Stoner Flicks for 4/20

Hark stoners! Your holiday approaches. How will you celebrate? Here at your favorite Belltown pot shop, we think there’s something to be said for that old classic: getting baked and watching stoner movies. Whether you’re in the mood for vaping, shatter, cannabis wax, tasty edibles, or an old-fashioned joint, these classic weed movies will not disappoint. So stock up on pre-rolls and other holiday treats at Have a Heart–and prepare to laugh until your face hurts. Up in Smoke — 1978 Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong blazed way for a new genre when they blazed a giant jay of “mostly Maui Wowie” with some “Labrador.” What’s not to love about a movie featuring a van made out of weed? (Here at the best marijuana shop in Seattle, we don’t actually sell vans, but we do think Cheech and Chong would approve of our selection of pre-rolls, which most definitely do not contain Labrador.) Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure — 1989 Two slacker metalheads travel through time in order to pass a high school history class. Bill and Ted don’t actually smoke weed on film, but c’mon–no one was fooled. The characters are perfect embodiments of the classic stoner archetype, and their happy-go-lucky antics and fondness for superlatives have made the movie a touchstone of 4/20 culture. Wyld Stallyns for ever! Dazed and Confused — 1993 Set in Texas in 1976, Dazed and Confused follows a group of high school students as they party hard to celebrate the last day of school. The movie introduces two of the greatest stoner characters of all time, David Wooderson (Matthew McConaughey) and Ron Slater (Rory Cochrane)....
