Free your Mind One Puff at a Time

Do you ever notice the littlest things when your high? Yesterday I saw my first butterfly of the year and if I wasn’t smoking I probably wouldn’t have seen it. It was sitting on the building next door and was of similar color. It got me thinking, what do butterflies do all day? You know besides fly and sit on things…I don’t know but I do know it’s very relaxing to smoke and watch the world around us. With the weather being nice now and summer coming soon I invite you to get outside and free your mind one puff at a time.

As for where, when and how? I’ve got a few suggestions :

Hiking

And when I say hiking I do mean walking around and smoking a lot of weed in the woods. When hiking however one must come prepared. Have all your blunts or joints pre-rolled before you get there. Or at least before you get out the car because it can be windy and there is no greater cannabis crime than losing your weed. Bring snacks, sandwiches, water and bug spray. You don’t want to be 2 hours away from civilization with no food when the munchies kick in.  And you didn’t hear it here but get off the trails. I know, I know, they say you can’t, your not suppose to…blah blah blahh…get off the trails, just watch out for poison ivy. One of my favorite kick it spots involves jumping a fence hiking about a mile in from there to the top of this waterfall. And when I sit there and smoke with the sound of the water, the view that makes you feel like your on top of the world…that’s when you realize that it’s these little moments that we live for.

Jet Ski/Kayak/Boating

Water is just one of those things I love and combining it with my other love, Mary Jane, well that’s the best! Here’s the trick to this. In a boat or jet ski you’ll have a water tight stash spot somewhere by the steering wheel/handle usually.

In a kayak you won’t but either way I highly recommend putting your pre-rolled blunts/joints in a ziplock baggie. Then if you have the stash, put it in there too and if not just secure it in a pocket or in my case the inside lining of my bikini top. You don’t want your weed to get wet. Then get out there. Make some waves, circle around and hit those same waves you made. Trust me it is so fun! Then cut the engine. Just sit out there like a buoy and spark up. Your probably thinking why not just smoke on the beach? Well I’m not saying don’t do that too. But try this out, I’m not sure why but when you smoke on the water and you are swaying with the waves it feels like you’re on air.

Drive-In

There aren’t many left out there but they are out there. There is only one in my area. To find one in your area check out this directory where you can search by state: Drive in Movies.

So picture it. You and your significant other sitting in the car in the dark. The windows are tinted and you have some dank ass herb while watching a horror or two? What do you thinks gonna happen?

Truly it feels like you’re in a movie watching a movie hot boxing to the max. You can go in your PJ’s if you want. They sell the munchies right there or you can bring your own. I’m not sure if all drive-ins do it but mines shows two movies. It’s a private setting for the most part. They are always located in very dark areas so you can see the stars on the screen and in the sky. And maybe you get a little lucky too (if you know what I mean).

And last but not least…

Camping

There is no better why to connect with nature than going out to the middle of no where, lighting a campfire and smoking some ganja. Being off the grind, with no cell service, no neighbors, nothing except nature and all of it’s beauty is a perfect setting to inhale nature’s medicine, clear your mind and free your soul.

 

 

Lead by Example: Healthy Smoking Habits for the Kids

The question isn’t will my kids smoke weed, it’s when and how? Because we all know it’s inevitable. My hope however is that the new generation strictly vapes. Because vaping is healthier. And we want the best for our kids don’t we?

These are the facts, cannabis isn’t bad for you, it’s actually great and has lots of benefits. But the act of smoking is. When one smokes harsh toxins are released that can damage your lungs and cause cancer. Haven’t you ever felt like a blunt was harsh on you?

I’ve smoked a lot of blunts, and still do.  But I’ve switched to hemp wraps instead of tobacco blunts because all those Phillies, Swishers and Garcia Vegas were getting too harsh on my throat. Though I do see a significant difference with hemp wraps, there are motivating reasons for the new generation to want to vape instead of smoke:

  1. The cannabis oils and concentrates, which is what you’d vape, are stronger and more potent. Giving you that high feeling faster and more efficiently.
  2. There’s barely any odor which means vaping weed makes it less likely you’ll get caught.
  3. You don’t need a lighter meaning no risk of breathing in any butane or noxious gases from your lighter, starting a fire or worse yet someone stealing your lighter. (joking on that last part)
  4. Vape pens deliver clean vapor packed with THC eliminating the smoking risks.
  5. And you save money because vapes last much longer.

Vaping is the way to go for sure. But this how I see things going down with my kids. They are going to want to try smoking. Their mother is Smokette after all and they’ll probably try to smoke my stash.

My plan? To have plenty of hemp wraps to roll, hemp wick to light and vape pens to “smoke” right there along side my stash that definitely includes cannabis oils. Because we can’t control other people, not even our own kids, but we can lead by example, preach and share healthier pothead habits. And most importantly, love them no matter what.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the stoner mommies out there and as always stay lit!
