Pot Questions: To Grind or Not to Grind Your Weed?

Pot Questions: To Grind or Not to Grind Your Weed?

Whether to grind or not to grind your weed is a pretty hot topic at our Have a Heart recreational marijuana shop in Bothell. One thing we all agree on, is that it depends on the particular strain of weed we’re smoking. Our budtenders can help you find the best weed for your lifestyle – and can advise on grinding, or not grinding, each of the amazing northwest strains of cannabis that we sell. Grind your weed: When the buds are super moist and sticky, and you’ll wind up with more weed on your fingers than in the bowl if you break it up by hand. When you’re rolling joints, and you want an evenly distributed balance of cannabis throughout so they burn easier. No lumpy blunts! When you’re packing a bowl, ground weed will burn more consistently because there’s more surface area – instead of burning just one side of a nug. The extra oxygen moving through the ground weed helps it burn a bit hotter, which will give you a stronger hit. When you like the THC crystals from your cannabis bud, also known as “keef.” Most grinders have a keefbox, and after a few rounds of grinding you’ll have a nice stash of keef to add to a bowl to make it more potent – or to use on it’s own for a seriously out-of-this-world high. Don’t grind it: When the weed you have on hand is a little dry, you can easily break it up with your fingers a bit – or leave it kind of chunky. When you want to just burn the edge...
High Art: Weed Manicures are Here and They’re Totally Crazy

High Art: Weed Manicures are Here and They’re Totally Crazy

As we all know, it’s not legal to smoke weed in public in Washington state. But here’s a question…Is it legal to wear it in public? We’re asking because we may just need to get on board with the latest Internet beauty trend: weed manicures. No, we don’t mean tiny paintings of pot leaves. We mean actual pot leaves embedded in your fingernail. Nail artists have created a wide range of styles, from tiny fan-leaves showcased in clear resin to glitter nails that incorporate green flecks of shake. Some artists have gone so far as to augment the weed with rhinestones and tiny gold pot leaves, while others take a classier approach and use the cannabis to add spice to a simple French manicure. If that sounds crazy to you, fasten your seat belts! Nail artist Tracylee does manicures that actually smoke. She first went viral on 4/20 when she posted a video clip of her latest creation: a homage to Snoop Dogg. The artist’s portrait was rendered on a fingernail with a lit joint protruding from the surface. Yes, you heard us correctly. “I basically just found an image of him on Google,” Tracylee told Fashionista. “Ever since I was young, I’ve had this ability where I can re-create any image on a piece of paper. On a nail it takes me a little longer to get the scale right, so from concept to finish it probably took about eight hours. I sketched it out in pencil first on the nail, and then I used a fine-tipped marker instead of polish. I sprayed it with a polyurethane first, then topped it...

Will Washington Cannabis Cafes Ever Be a Reality?

Will Washington Cannabis Cafes Ever Be a Reality?

Washington cannabis cafes should really be a thing. And why they aren’t here already is a question that’s bugged your budtenders at the best Bothell weed shop for a while. Because we have a full selection of legal pot — think weed edibles, shatter wax, topicals, and vaping cartridges — it all has to be smoked in a private residence. Washington cannabis cafes don’t exist, because they aren’t legal. But in Vancouver’s New Amsterdam Café, guests chill out, drink coffee, admire the artwork, and eat the shop’s famous grilled cheese sandwiches — all while smoking bud. Don’t have a pipe? No problem. For $5 you can rent a top-of-the-line vaporizer. And if New Amsterdam isn’t your scene, you have other options. The café is located on Vancouver’s famous “pot block,” where locals and tourists congregate in coffee shops to enjoy the city’s famous green. So what’s wrong with this picture? Recreational marijuana is not yet legal in Vancouver. That’s why Have a Heart Belltown serves so many Canadian tourists. And that brings us to this important questions: Why does Vancouver have better weed tourism options than Seattle, where recreational marijuana actually is legal? Yes, we have pot shops. But Seattle offers few options for visitors who want to legally sample Washington’s legal weed. Since it’s illegal to consume marijuana in public, tourists must make friends with a local or rent a smoking room at a hotel. Can we really call ourselves the Emerald City when visitors must resort to puffing in a smelly room with curtains drawn? That just doesn’t seem very hospitable, now, does it?
