Get High and Fly: Experience Wings Over Washington

Get High and Fly: Experience Wings Over Washington

People — we are living the Golden Age. Who hasn’t spent a stoned afternoon leafing through National Geographic or watching nature documentaries? From close-ups of brilliant plumage to aerial shots of glaciers, nature photography has long provided weed enthusiasts with trippy entertainment. But the incredible technological advances of the past ten years have taken this pastime to a new level — the clarity, the detail, the ability to capture places and scenes that once existed only in our imaginations! Which brings us to our point…Here at Have a Heart, we’re excited to check out Wings Over Washington, which promises excellent stoned entertainment. Located at Pier 57, the Wings Over Washington ride takes visitors on an aerial adventure  from the San Juan Islands to the Walla Walla Valley. According to their website: “Once you are strapped into your theater seat, you will experience an amazing journey as a ‘spirit eagle’ sweeps you upward into flight across the state of Washington.” As the floor and chairs move in tandem with the swooping visuals, you’ll have the illusion of soaring through the morning mists of the Olympic National Forest and hovering over Seattle’s Great Wheel to watch fireworks explode over Elliot Bay. Spirit eagle? Sign us up. Besides, Wings Over Washington claims to have “the most state-of-the-art theater in the world using 5K cameras; innovative art laser projection; drones for image capture; MUSHROOM VR™, and a ground-breaking surround sound system.” For an 18-minute experience, tickets are a little steep — $17 for adults, $13 for kids, and $15 for seniors. But hey, who said spirit eagles are cheap or easy to come by? And...
Strangest Strain Names

Strangest Strain Names

Whats in a name? Strain names help us to remember the different effects associated with each plant. For those who are sensitive to the rocket like effect that sativas provide, you may want to stay away from anything labeled with the term “Haze.” If you have work to do and it’s the middle of the day, perhaps strain names like 9lb Hammer and Daywrecker are not the best choices either. Some names are great descriptors of what the smell or high will be like, while other names are just plain crazy sounding. Seed breeders usually use different parts of the parent’s names to pass onto the next generation of plants. For instance when DNA Genetics crossed their Chocolate Thai to their Cannalope Haze they decided to call the offspring, Chocolope! Sometimes breeders have a great sense of humor and label strains with some seriously funny or strange names. So here at Have a Heart we have compiled a list of 10 of the strangest names that we could find on the Internet, lets take a look.   Top Ten Strangest Names for Cannabis Strains   Cat Piss – Clone Only Dog Shit – Clone Only Alaskan Thunderfuck – Unknown Origins Alien Asshat – Sky High Gardens Schrom – Clone Only Diamond Socks – Colorado Seed Co. Hog’s Breath – Clone Only Karma Bitch by Rare Dankness Bleeting Goat – Washingtons Finest Purple Tears by Dirt Farmer Genetics   If you’re in a hurry, visit our online menu and search for your favorite strain. Fill up your online basket, reply to the confirmation text, and your order will be ready...
It’s Time to Be Responsible at Weed Events

It’s Time to Be Responsible at Weed Events

We made it! Cannabis has been legalized, and now you can Start your Adventure with a tremendous selection of flower, edibles, prerolls, and more at Have a Heart Belltown — right next to Piece of Mind and the Cookies Store. With all this freedom to buy legal weed comes great responsibility. The government is still not 100% behind the idea that cannabis is safe to consume, so we have to continue to show them that we are professionals, mothers, fathers, and regular people who just like to consume cannabis as a way to enjoy our lives. So, when it comes to cannabis related events, we need to make sure that we are working in compliance with the laws while also enjoying them. Seattle holds and has held some world-renowned cannabis related events over the years such as Hempfest, High Times Cannabis Cup, CannaCon, and the Cannabis Grand Cru.  Some of these events like CannaCon are oriented more towards professionals. Others like Hempfest, which promotes cannabis advocacy through freedom of speech and celebrates the culture of cannabis, is more of a festival-like event for all.     One of the largest issues that events like Hempfest have to worry about is property damage and litter at Myrtle Edwards Park, where the event is held.  Making sure that none of the art installations in the park are damaged or covered with graffiti and stickers takes a lot of time and money to prepare for before and after the event. This doesn’t mean that we can’t have fun at the event, it just means that we have to be considerate and not damage or...

They were crudely given an ultimatum between promoting an outdated portrayal of the community or not at all. Determined to bridge the gap between upscale...

Marijuana Industry Will Create More Jobs Than Manufacturing by 2020

Marijuana Industry Will Create More Jobs Than Manufacturing by 2020

According to a recent article in Forbes, the legal marijuana industry will create over a quarter of a million jobs by 2020. At Have a Heart we’re totally excited about the future of the industry. In fact, we’re hiring! Have a Heart is opening a number of stores in Washington State over the next few months, and we’re looking for motivated, talented employees to help us serve our customers and our team. If you’re knowledgeable about cannabis, from strains to edibles, dabbing supplies, vape cartridges and topicals – we want to talk to you. From Forbes: “These numbers confirm that cannabis is a major economic driver and job-creation engine for the U.S. economy,” said Giadha Aguirre De Carcer, Founder and CEO of New Frontier Data. “While we see a potential drop in total number of U.S. jobs created in 2017, as reported by Kiplinger, as well as an overall expected drop in GDP growth, the cannabis industry continues to be a positive contributing factor to growth at a time of potential decline. We expect the cannabis industry’s growth to be slowed down to some degree in the next three to five years, however with projected total market sales to exceed $24 billion by 2025, and the possibility of almost 300,000 jobs by 2020, it remains a positive economic force in the U.S.” Before you sit down to get that resume ready and write your cover letter, toke up with a few of our favorite strains for creativity and focus. CINEX This sativa can help get your through those tasks that might otherwise be a drag. Provides uplifting focus for...
