That’s Right, Weed Weddings are Totally a Thing Now

That’s Right, Weed Weddings are Totally a Thing Now

To paraphrase Billy Idol, it’s a great time for a weed wedding. Just picture it: The tables are laden with mint petit-fours, canapes, and gorgeous bouquets in hand-thrown ceramic vases. The bride looks stunning in an off-the-shoulder gown, and the cakes are towering works of art. Content guests wander from tent to tent as the band strikes up a Louis Armstrong tune. “Cannabis weddings are now a growth industry with the attendant specialists, consultants, wedding planners, and budtenders. And traditional wedding industry professionals like caterers and photographers are cashing in on the phenomenon by advertising their services as ‘cannabis friendly.’ But this is just the first wave.” It’s a typical wedding on the classier end of the spectrum. But the discerning guest may note a few unusual details… At this wedding, the longest line is not at the conventional bar but at another tent that’s removed from the rest of the party. Yes, the cannabis bar is the place to be. Here, a licensed weed sommelier loads bongs, introduces the selection at a dab bar, and dispenses custom cannabis cookies, tarts, and brownies. Yes, this is a cannabis wedding. Not only does it have a bud bar (adults only and segregated from the rest of the party), but the flower arrangements showcase gorgeous flowers of Grape Ape and Blackberry soda. And those vases? They’re actually custom bongs. The party favors? Hand-blown canisters decorated in theme-colored ribbons and filled with pre-rolled joints. Even the ceremony features weed, with the bride and groom sharing a special pipe. Cannabis weddings are now a growth industry with the attendant specialists, consultants, wedding planners,...

How to Keep Your Place from Smelling Like Weed

How to Keep Your Place from Smelling Like Weed

Not sure if your place smells like weed? Try this: Go outside, and run up and down some stairs – or around the block. Then, re-enter your place and take a big sniff. Getting the blood pumping is how professional “sniffers” reset their noses when testing perfumes, coffee and other things that require an on-point sense of smell. If you’re a regular weed smoker, you’ve probably gone nose blind to the smell of your own house – and airing out the weed smell every now and again is a sure sign that you’ve graduated to adulthood. But how do you keep your place from smelling like weed in the first place? Have a Heart has some suggestions. Top 5 Ways to Keep Your Place from Smelling Like Weed Keep your stash in a tightly sealed container. This will not only preserve the freshness of your weed, it’ll also help keep the smell contained. Bothell’s best pot shop has a great selection of the best marijuana storage containers. Check out your airflow. If you’ve got central AC, you may want to alternate it with using a window fan to help pull smoke out of your place while rotating fresh air into it. Blow your smoke into a filter. These are great for apartment living where the whole building shares an air circulation system. Invest in an air purifier or try some all-natural odor eliminating products like activated charcoal, or a spray with odor-eating enzymes. Switch to vaping! Vaporizer pens deliver cannabinoids directly to the brain without carcinogens or a smell that lingers – they’re the perfect option for people who...

Berner is Making Edibles — Get Ready for Cookies by Cookies

Berner is Making Edibles — Get Ready for Cookies by Cookies

Yup, Cookies by Cookies  are actually a thing. What a time to be alive. Cookies has been called the biggest brand in weed. Nugs from the famous San Francisco dispensary are just a small (but of course vital) element in the Cookies empire. You can buy Cookies brand rolling trays, rolling boxes, mini vacuum sealers, Cookies Hemp20 infused water, Cookies ashtrays, Cookies backpacks, and, of course, mountains of Cookies clothing, from hoodies to baseball jerseys.  So it makes sense that the Cookies brand would release actual… cookies. For the past few months, Cookies has been dropping tantalizing hints about the upcoming release of their line of cannabis-infused edibles. So do Berner’s edibles live up to the hype? Here at Have a Heart, we’ve assembled a board of estimable experts in the field of cannabis edibles. This crew has sampled every snack on the market — from Willie’s Reserve almond chocolates to Magic Kitchen’s sweet and sour cherry Marmas. Hey, someone’s got to do it! Needless to say, we don’t carry a brand unless it passes muster. So short answer? Yes, Cookies by Cookies are awesome! Let’s start with the packaging. As usual, Cookies hits the mark with the branding. The cool blue-and-white boxes are neatly-designed and appealingly simple. Inside, the cookies are individually wrapped. When opened, they give off a fresh, promising aroma. The chewy starmel doodle is obviously made by stoners for stoners. Sticky, sweet, delectable, with a dash of cinnamon and just an alluring hint of cannabis flavor. Our team of experts chowed through a box in no time and seemed hungry for more. And the high? A solid...
Getting High in July with Friends

Getting High in July with Friends

Good news! On July 23rd cannabis consumers in Washington State will legally be allowed to share cannabis products with each other! It is kind of weird to think that the law had to be changed to let someone pass a doobie to a friend, even when weed was already legalized, but here we are. The government still hasn’t legalized all possession of cannabis, so while passing a joint to your partner will be considered legal, giving them a pound of weed will still be illegal. Even if it’s for free. So, what does this break down to as far as legal purchasing limits of different cannabis products go? Flower – 1 ounce Blue Dream from Clandestine $15 per gram Narnia from Soulshine $12 per gram Strawberry Switchblade $160 per half ounce Edibles – 16 ounces Cannabees CBD Honey 100mg from Swift $35 Indica Brownie from Spot $10 Oatmeal Cranberry Cookie from Goodship $8 Concentrates – 7 grams 9lb Hammer Honey Crystal Wax from Oleum $30 per half gram CBD 1:1 Cartridge from Fairwinds $40 per half gram Sour Tangie from Happy Cat $40 per half gram Liquids – 72 ounces Rainier Cherry Liquid Joy 10mg Tonic from Legal Beverages for $6 Strawberry Lemonade THC/CBD 60mg from Cannabis Quencher $25 Toca Cola 60mg from Loaded Soda $21   These numbers also coincide with the legal limit for purchases at all of our locations as well. While it will still be illegal to pass the bong on July 4th this year, it will be legal to pass your parents an edible on July 23rd, which is Parents Day in the US. So,...
