Dope Directory Review

Had an awesome time with the guys from the Dope Directory. Adding a little more info to your search for dispensaries. Here’s a little clip from the article. Link at bottom for full page:

It’s not just a trope that you’ll see in shows like the Beverly Hillbillies; a lot of people from rural areas are genuinely shocked at how people interact in the big city. However, it might not be nearly as noticeable in a city like Denver, as the Midwest floods us with enough influence to make us seem like some friendly city folk. Even so, people start staring when you start smiling and – God forbid – start talking to them while traversing the sidewalks downtown. The irony isn’t lost on me, or I’m sure anyone who has ever resided in a large city (especially my East Coast homies. NYC, I’m looking at you). You might be within ten miles of a million people at any given time, but society conditions us to not make eye contact, keep our heads down, and mind our own damn business. Imagine my surprise, then, finding the complete customer service experience in a place whose name is an homage to the city. Urban Dispensary, located off 38th Avenue just north of the Highlands, might be a cozy place in a heavily urban area, but the aforementioned rules of the city fly right out the window, and in their place, a slower-paced and more personal customer service experience….

Edible of the Month

Dixie – Colorado Bar

At 300mg this is sure to give you that punch you’re looking for in an edible. Sunflower butter ganache covered in white and milk chocolate you’ll have a tough time not eating the whole thing at once. Beware if you do it will take you for a spin. I like a good punch so I started with ½ of the bar at 150mg. Enjoying a lovely sunset at lookout mountain about 20 minutes after I had eaten I got a rush of euphoria coming over me. Becoming nervous at first I had to remind myself what I had eaten and to just to sit back and enjoy.  Which I did, very much in fact. However next time I may just start out with a ¼ (maybe less). Let’s just say I was thankful to not be the one driving home that night and I slept like a baby J

How It All Began. The Origin of 420!

420 originated by a group of guys out of San Rafael High School in California. Basically during an after school smoke session one of these guys known as “The Bebe” or “The Father of 420” glances at the clock and says “its 4:20, time for some bong loads”. The term was a big hit that spread through the region and on to others quickly. Now it is celebrated as a national holiday for people to come together and burn down!

 

How to Make Cannabis Infused Coconut Oil

THC bonds to the fats in foods. Using coconut oil to make edibles is fantastic because it is filled with healthy fats to make it more potent and effective. Coconut oil is filled healthy fats and all around great for your body inside and out! Not to mention those fats make it a great substitute for butter or olive oil. It’s always best to get organic, unfiltered, cold pressed coconut to insure you are reaping its benefits for your body to the fullest.

what you will need

  • Crock Pot or Slow Cooker
  • Cannabis Trim or Flower
  • Coconut Oil
  • Straining Material (cheese cloth works great)

steps

  1. Measure your Cannabis and Oil. Depending the amount you want. Generally a 2 : 1 ratio works best and as you practice you will be able to change this up depending on your potency preference.
  2. Grind the cannabis. This is nice to break it down and it will bond better with the oil. Just don’t lose that sugary goodness!
  3. Put desired amount of oil into the crock pot and let it get nice and smooth as coconut oil tends to be solid until warmed up. Crock pot should be on LOW through entire process.
  4. Add cannabis
  5. Let sit for at least 6 hours (12 works best). It’s great to stir throughout the process and make sure it is ALWAYS ON LOW.
  6. When the time is up us a strainer and cheese cloth to eliminate plant material in oil to strain the cannabis out and BAM your done!

SAGE Culture Review

Sage, as you may remember from last month, stands for Sativa Afghani Genetic Equilibrium, a geneticist’s attempt at breeding the perfect 50/50 hybrid. Where would the medical cannabis community be without mad scientists? We sampled from a big ol‘ jar of Sage from Urban Dispensary in Denver and felt all the more wiser for our decision….For full article click here.

Kurple Fantasy Culture Review

Mm, mm! The child of OG Kush and Himalayan Purple, we first thought this strain was a Colorado native due to its pungent pineyness. A hybrid bred and cultivated by Urban Dispensary, its effects are heavy and numbing, but it will still leave even the most novice patient fully functional….For full article click here.

Vader Kush Budder Culture Review

The force is strong with this one. Appropriately melty for a concentrate called “budder,” Vader Kush is available on the shelves of the highly popular Urban Dispensary in Denver. The budder smokes better sprinkled over a bowl than most other types of concentrates…..For full article click here.
