stoner movies

Who doesn’t love some good old television when you are as high as a kite? It is a no-brainer how most of us love to binge TV shows or movies when we are dazed. With the right munchies and great friends, we’re definitely all set to watch funny and psychedelic movies and shows in one sitting. Anything can be a stoner movie with the right high. A 5-hour long animal documentary? Count us in. Staring at some 70s soap opera? Ah, that’s the deal. However, nothing beats foolish stoner movies that will make you cry happy tears. 

With more states and countries legalizing marijuana, the cannabis industry has become more mainstream than ever. You can see it from the cosmetics, apparel, down to movies. Streaming companies such as Netflix have now featured stoner flicks and movies that will make your crap from laughing. Here are a few stoner movies you can enjoy the next time you take long lazy tokes:

Mac and Deven

This movie is a classic comedy featuring two cannabis enthusiasts and rappers Snoop Dog and Wiz Khalifa. Mac (Snoop), a long-term high school senior, helps Whiz Khalifa (Devin), class valedictorian, live and have fun to write a meaningful graduation speech. The stoner movie has a hodge-podge of everything from music breaks and jokes although the entire movie doesn’t have a solid plot (who needs it, right?) Sit through the THC-induced laughter and enjoy the 75-minute movie. 

Superbad

You’re set for a typical high school movie with Seth Rogen’s and Evan Goldberg’s writing prowess. The story follows two childhood best friends on the verge of going to different colleges. The duo isn’t actually famous but that didn’t stop them from enjoying their last hurrah. Throw in the shuffle some raucous party scenes and Emma stone and you get yourself a funny stoner movie. 

Friday

Of course, Friday is on our list. Friday is Ice Cube’s debut in screenwriting. The scrappy and lighthearted movie revolves around a day in the life of a South Central neighbourhood. Ice Cube showed his creative genius as he also played in the movie alongside Chris Tucker. The two are posing as two unemployed stoners. Craig (Ice Cube) has just lost his job. Despite the incessant badgering from his parents, he decided to put off his job search and hang out with his friend, “Smokey”, a drug dealer. The friends spent their days getting high and eventually, they’ve reached a point where they need to pay back Smokey’s boss or face the consequence. With Ice Cube and Chris Tucker as a cast, need we still convince you to watch it?

Ted

Ever wondered about having a bong-hitting teddy bear as a friend? Ted answers this question and more. The director of Family Guy, Seth McFarlane, gives the same freedom he did in this movie as he did in his show. All young John Bennet (Mark Wahlberg) wants is a true friend for the rest of his life. On Christmas, his parents gave him a giant teddy bear that comes to life after John asked Teddy to be his friend for life. The miracle of talking and walking the teddy bear makes Teddy an overnight sensation. Eventually, his fame fades and he becomes John’s roommate. The potty mouth, bong-hitting Teddy makes this movie a great one to watch while passing the bong. 

The Night Before

While this stoner movie is ideal for the holidays, who’s to say you can’t watch The Night Before on a normal weed-laced day? The story focuses on three friends celebrating one final night of holiday fun before embracing the real world of grown-ups. Three best friends (Seth Rogen, Anthony Mackie, and Joseph Gordon Levitt) are determined to end their 10-year tradition with a bang. They planned to consume the box filled with every single drug in the whole world, given by Isaac (Seth Rogen’s wife). However, the box doesn’t have the weed so the trio went on a trip to pick up some kush, and things started to get hilariously wild. 

Bonus Weed TV Shows

Besides these hilarious movies, you can also just chill and watch these weed-themed series:

Bong Appetit

Catchy name. High-end gourmet cooking with cannabis. Bong Appetit is perfect if you wish to learn a wide range of food cultures with cannabis. Created by Vice media, the YouTube series invites reputed chefs around the world to craft intricate and exemplary meals infused with cannabis. Bong Appetit really appealed to not just food enthusiasts and culinary connoisseurs, it also attracted weed enthusiasts and regular viewers. Imagine dreamy cannabis cuisines made by talented chefs and guests. Be warned though as watching this show may cause you to drool over the delectable food.

This fast-paced game show is a fresh take on weed cooking shows. Each episode features two chefs who are both nimble in cooking with cannabis. With a close kitchen setup where chefs and judges can interact in the entire episode, this show suits those who want to watch lighthearted and fun weed-themed series. Cooking on High is a perfect show to indulge while chilling or getting into a quick munchie session. 

 As marijuana becomes legal in more states and across the world, it is not surprising to see more cannabis-themed shows/series pop up on the big screens. More shows mean more choices for you when you light one up, right? What’s your go-to stoner movie?

Factors that Affect Your Weed High

factors that affect the weed high

We’ve all been there. Trying to get high as a kite with our pals and then turned out one of us got higher than the others. You may be that person who got incredibly higher while the others continued to puff their joints. It’s no secret that cannabis has different effects on people. The intensity, effects, and delivery method are all personal preferences from one user to the next.

Your budtenders could help you which strain works best for your tolerance but you still need to bear in mind the different factors that affect the cannabis effects into your body.

The delivery method affects the duration of cannabis to kick into your body and how long the effects will last. Consider the following:

Smoking or vaping
The effects of smoking or vaping happen within 2 to 10 minutes because the cannabis enters your bloodstream through your lungs within minutes of inhaling it. The effects hit around 10 minutes after consumption and last 1 to 3 hours. However, the effects can last up to 8 hours.

Eating
Edibles take a while to kick in within 30 to 60 minutes. The effects can last as long as 2 hours. The digestive system takes a while to metabolize cannabis. When you take edibles, you usually peak around 2 hours. The cannabis effects can last up to 24 hours.

Dabbing
Dabbing is the process of heating a concentrated cannabis dose using a special pipe and then inhaling the vapor. Dabs have a higher THC content than other forms of cannabis which means the kick gets in more quickly. Just like smoking, dabbing effects take place within an hour to three. If you are into high THC concentrate, you could feel the effects for a day.
How long the effects last can vary greatly depending on the dose and potency. The more you use and the higher the THC content, the longer the effects will stick around. The effects of cannabis vary greatly on the potency and dose. The higher the THC content, the effects will become longer.

Cannabis affects everyone differently. Your high might last for a couple of hours but the aftereffects could last a day. Besides the method of delivery, here are the factors that affect the cannabis high:

Dosage

Dosing can be tricky especially when you are taking a new strain. The right dose can help you achieve your desired effect without any adverse side effects. Too little dosage will feel like nothing at all while too high can result in unexpected side effects such as nausea or paranoia. Whatever the delivery method you are trying, make sure to start a low dose and gradually increase your dosage until you achieve your desired high.
The method of delivery can affect your cannabis dose. However, edibles are crucial to ingest especially homemade edibles. Each bite has a different amount of pot. Compared to smoking weed, you can physically see the amount of cannabis you’ll consume. Store-brought cannabis will typically include its ingredients in its packaging and indicate the THC and CBD amounts. This will give a clear idea of the amount of cannabis you are consuming. Take note that your high is also dependent on the amount of THC in the product. The greater the THC content, the higher you become.

Age
Try as hard to deny it, your age plays a great part in your marijuana tolerance. You might have had enjoyed marijuana back when you were young. As people age, the body goes through changes. The body’s chemical composition can affect how you tolerate cannabis. You may get higher and have more unappealing side effects. You can enjoy your doja and enjoy your high by smoking weeds with lower levels of THC strains.

Tolerance
The tolerance level refers to how much pot you can take before your feel the high. No two people are alike so your tolerance is different compared to your friend’s. Your tolerance is affected by your comfort in getting high. You may be enjoying the rollercoaster weed high while your friend may be greening out in the corner. If you are trying a new strain, start with a low dosage and check how the strain affects your mind. Once you feel comfortable with the high, you can increase your dosage.

Environment
Surprisingly, the mood and setting affect your cannabis experience. You may experience a different high when you are at home than when you’re hitting a blunt anxiously in a crowded place. Find out which environment you are most comfortable in to get the best high. Don’t forget to consider the people to get high with for maximum experience.

Managing the high
Weed can trigger unpleasant side effects including anxiety and paranoia. Having a high usually lasts between 1 to 6 hours depending on these factors mentioned above. If you are feeling a little too high, you can reduce the effects by taking a nap. Sleeping can help you come down from the high, allowing your body to relax. You can also take whole black peppercorn or sniff it to facilitate the sedative effects of THC.

Getting High
Some people complain about not getting high enough as they are already seasoned and have a high tolerance. You could get higher by mixing the strains or increasing your dosage. If you wish for a longer-lasting high, you can try ingesting edibles. You can also get higher by switching your delivery method. A great way to beat your tolerance is to take a break from smoking.

Edible Dosing For Beginners: Tips to Enjoy Cannabis Edible Experience

0
Edible Dosing

Eating edibles is a fun way for beginners to experience the effects of cannabis without smoking. After all, who could resist the delicious taste of brownies or gummies? Edibles are tricky as they often result in a more intense high. It is important to pay attention to the right dose to enjoy the effects of edibles.

While smoking remains to be the most popular form of consuming cannabis, more people are switching to ingesting edibles. It is easy to overindulge since edibles take time to kick in compared to smoking.

Check out this edible dosing guide before consuming your edibles:

Choosing between homemade and commercial

Homemade edibles might be easy to make but without the right measurement and equipment, it may not be a good idea for beginners. You don’t just infuse edibles without knowing the amount of cannabis you put in it. This is a recipe for a bad trip. It’s suggested to get your edibles from a licensed and trusted dispensary to get the right dosage based on your tolerance. 

Consider your tolerance and dosage

Finding the right dosage can help you enjoy your first edible trip. Everyone has different reactions to taking cannabis based on its potency, tolerance and sensitivity to the endocannabinoid system. While edibles are processed differently, a good rule of thumb is that smoking a half gram of joint equates to ingesting 10 mg of THC edible. If you are a newbie, you can start with half the “standard dosage” which is 10 mg. You can always increase your dosage for another 5 mg in another hour or two once you are comfortable with the effects of the first dose. Cannabis edibles have dose intervals of 5 mg, 10 mg, 20 mg, 40mg, and 100 mg. Even seasoned enthusiasts consume small doses ( between 3-7 mg) when consuming edibles. This is to gently stimulate the body’s cannabinoid receptors to increase mood, focus, and creativity.

Listen to your body

The effects of cannabis depend on your body mass, age, gender, metabolism, and body chemistry. These things change over time which means your edible dosage may vary. You can ask your local budtender about the right dosage for your age, body type, gender, and experience. 

Start Small

Consuming edibles produce an intense high. The effects of edibles take longer compared to smoking a joint. Instead of eating the entire brownies or cookies in one sitting, you can nibble or consider eating smaller items such as candies and gummies. Don’t try to measure up with advanced users as experienced consumers tend to be more resilient to the cannabis side effects.

Do it in a comfortable space

While edibles are portable, the effects of inducing edibles can be overwhelming for beginners. It is advised to consume edibles at the comfort of your home or in a safe place with familiar faces. The presence of someone comfortable reduces the possible anxiety side effects of cannabis. The most important thing is you are in a space where you are calm and doing something you enjoy to take your mind off ingesting marijuana. You can go outdoors but don’t drive or operate heavy equipment. 

Don’t ingest on an empty stomach

The effects of edibles kick in faster on an empty stomach. However, there have been reports of people with upset stomachs. Make sure to eat a meal and drink plenty of fluids before consuming edibles. You can take high-fat foods to speed up the absorption of cannabis in your body. Make sure to not mix alcohol with your edibles. Doing so will increase the THC concentration in the blood and can dehydrate you. 

Wait for the effects to kick in 

We understand how tasty edibles are. However, you cannot just eat the entire package of these tasty treats just because you haven’t felt the effects kicking in. Bear in mind that edibles take longer to kick in compared to smoking cannabis. Your body fat, metabolism, and other factors also take into play when it comes to cannabis effects. As you start slow, wait for 45 minutes to an hour before increasing your dosage. Read the label as some brands indicate an “activation time” in their products. Resist over-snacking your edibles to avoid a bad trip. No one wants that. But in case that you did, don’t panic.

Different edibles, different effects

Some people have different reactions or high depending on the type of edibles they consume. Some enjoy the high that gummies give while others are comfortable eating brownies. Consider exploring other edibles within your dosage to find the right edibles that work for you.

Bad trips happen

Even when you are experienced and have a high tolerance, bad trips can happen. This is why it is important to start slow and small. However, if you are having a bad trip, try to stay calm and breathe. The panic will wear off when you take your mind off it. Consider watching a movie or doing things you enjoy to get distracted. Drink plenty of water to expedite the digestive process and ease your bad trip. Before taking cannabis edibles, make sure to discuss what you need to do for each other in case one of you has a bad trip. Discuss ground rules and ensure that the place is safe.

Conclusion

Edibles are a fantastic way to enjoy the effects of marijuana if you don’t want to smoke. However, you need to pay attention to the guide indicated above to ensure you have a favourable tripping experience. Make sure you get the right dose, consider your tolerance, don’t take edibles on an empty stomach, and consume with familiar faces in a comfortable space. In case you are having a bad trip, read this blog post to manage your weed hangover.

Weed Map: US States that Legalize Marijuana

0
legal marijuana

Marijuana legalization has come so far since Washington and Colorado legalized cannabis for recreational use in 2012. More and more states have legalized marijuana for recreational, medical or both purposes.

Most Americans now have access to marijuana across the country whether it’s for recreational or medical. The last US election saw states such as New York, New Mexico, Mississippi, Montana, Virginia and South Dakota legalized recreational marijuana.
Despite marijuana being illegal at the federal level, the states that legalized THC outnumbered those that don’t. It’s now a matter of when the rest of the country will follow suit as state legislatures are contemplating ways to legalize it. Bills to decriminalize marijuana have also been passed to Congress.

Among the most common policy questions about medical marijuana include regulation of its recommendation, marijuana dispensing, and patient registration.

Along with the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands, there are now 36 states that have extensive medical cannabis programs. The comprehensive cannabis program in 11 states permits the use of “low THC, high cannabidiol (CBD)” products for medical purposes in limited situations or as a legal defence.

States that approved recreational marijuana
Except for Vermont, retail sales from dispensaries are allowed in all states that legalized cannabis. Each state has different processes for granting dispensaries licenses. However, businesses that offer marijuana products should have a license before operating.

Here are the states that allow recreational cannabis:

  • Colorado
  • Washington
  • Alaska
  • Oregon
  • Washington, D.C.
  • California
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • Nevada

Federal Laws: Where do they Stand?

At the federal level, marijuana remains to be in a Schedule 1 drug under the Controlled Substances Act. The Schedule 1 substances are seen to have a high potential for dependency and abuse with no accepted medical use. This means that the distribution, possession and cultivation of marijuana are considered federal offences. This created tension between the federal government and states that legalized marijuana.
However, the federal government has remarkably come a long way as more states got into the legal cannabis program. The U.S. Department of Justice updated its marijuana enforcement policy in August 2013, stating that states should create strong, state-based enforcement efforts and will put off the right to question state legalization. Nevertheless, they reserve the right to challenge the states at any time they feel the need to do so.
In January 2018, the Marijuana Enforcement Memorandum was issued, allowing federal prosecutors to decide how they should prioritize the enforcement of federal cannabis laws.

Marijuana Decriminalization vs legalization

Decriminalization of drug use means that possessing and using small amounts of drugs, specifically marijuana, will not have felony charges or potential jail time. States that decriminalized cannabis treat possession and consumption of marijuana as an offence punishable by a fine.

The District of Columbia along with twenty-seven states have decriminalized small amounts of cannabis. Some states have reclassified the possession of small amounts of cannabis as a civil offence. This means that certain small, personal consumption (an ounce or less) amounts at least for first-time offenders isn’t considered a state crime without any jail time. However, repeat offences, sales, distribution and or possession of a huge amount of cannabis can still result in jail time or a criminal record remains in some states.

The difference between marijuana decriminalization and legalization lies in the legal classifications and penalties. People who possess or smoke a certain amount of marijuana will not have legal consequences under marijuana legalization. Meanwhile, violators are responsible for monetary fines for cannabis possession when cannabis has been decriminalized.

Medical Marijuana Benefits

Among the potential health benefits of cannabis include pain relief, appetite stimulation, anxiety relief, sedation, Alzheimer’s disease, appetite loss, cancer, epilepsy, Crohn’s disease, Glaucoma, Multiple sclerosis, and mental disorders. There are plenty of ways
While most people are relying on marijuana for its medical benefits, the FDA has only approved it for treating two rare and severe forms of epilepsy. Since marijuana has been classified as a Schedule I drug, researchers need a special license for further research.
Medical marijuana can be administered by inhaling it via a vaporizer that turns the smoke into a mist. You can also enjoy a brownie or lollipop AKA edibles. Others apply cannabis on their skin topically. Some apply a few drops of cannabis oil under their tongues. The effectiveness of cannabis depends on the method of consumption. Smoking or vaporizing cannabis yields faster results compared to ingesting. Eating edibles can take an hour or two to feel the effects.

The Bottom line

At this point, it will not be a surprise for others to join the bandwagon and make their states a safe place for marijuana enthusiasts. The legalization of cannabis opens up a door of lucrative opportunities for businesses regardless if it’s for medical or recreational.

Weed Munchies: Ultimate Guide To Stoner Munchies

0

Weed munchies or cravings for salty, sweet, or fatty foods appear when you smoke or eat pot. The relationship between weed and munchies is the same with bacon and eggs. For anyone who knows their weed very well, the idea that weeds cause the user to turn to snacks instantly is in the mind.

Why do you feel the cravings after smoking or eating weed?

The active ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol or THC in a drug is responsible for the “high”, most people experience when using weed. It is also responsible for people feeling cravings for food.

In fact, the brain has two regions: Some areas hold our moods, other areas influence the appetite that let us eat or stop eating. Every time we consume a drug, its effect is distributed to all parts of our body and brain. When the THC reaches the brain that affects mood, it stimulates euphoria. On the other hand, when THC enters the brain that influences appetite, it will urge you to eat.

Why Do Stoners Really Get The Munchies? 

It is no secret that weed is a proven appetite stimulant. The main cannabis psychoactive factor or THC interacts with the endocannabinoid system of the body (ECS). The ECS is responsible for controlling many functions in the body, such as sleep, mood, sexual activity, and appetite. Research shows that a hormone is secreted in the stomach and increases appetite when THC communicates with the ECS. THC is especially cited as a strong appetite stimulant. 

What Are Munchies?

Munchies are the craving for foods and are severe hunger that is a result of smoking weed.

Either you eat or smoke weed munchies, the compounds found in cannabis can trigger your appetite. One of the effects of engaging in weed munchies is a strong desire for food like sweets and fats.

 Understanding the effect of munchies is essential because of the rise in weed legalization. In addition to coughing fits, a hit of marijuana triggers cellular switches in the body, some of which are linked to sudden food cravings. These are caused by the cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2, which are found along with the nervous and immune systems. These receptors play a role in human metabolism, nutrient transport, and appetite. 

The Science Behind Weed Munchies

THC activates the endocannabinoid system, a complex area in the brain that controls feeding behavior and energy balance. It affects many primitive areas of the brain, things that regulate appetite and emotions. According to research, THC links with receptors in the brain that controls emotions, pain, and sense of smell and taste. It also promotes the release of the hormone ghrelin that stimulates hunger.

THC enhances our sensitivity in smelling that results in aromas causing us to eat more food. Research reveals that neurons are normally turned off when eating and stimulate more eating habits when weed is used.

Other research reveals that neurons turn off when eating and stimulate more eating when weed is used. THC also enhances dopamine production, which boosts the enjoyment of food.

The Effects Of Eating Too Much Weed When You Have Munchies

Consuming too much weed will result in an overdose or will give you a “high”.
