Buying Ganja in India

February 28th, 2007 by Alex

Since I’m going on a little international trip myself in the next few days, I figured it would be a good time to drop this video.

We all know Americans aren’t the only people who like weed. Tons of other people across the planet buy, sell and smoke marijuana.

Let’s take… Indians for instance! Here a silky-tongued ganja salesman keeps us up to date with Indian pot terminology. Now we know, and knowing is half the battle…

Chef Boyarweed: Dank Brownies

Chef Boyarweed: Dank Brownies

While checking out the edibles at my local dispensary, I decided to pick up Chef Boyarweed’s Dank Brownie and it made my night turn out especially relaxing.

Company Chef Boyarweed
Pros Long lasting
Cons Taste
Price $10.00
tFS Rating 8.0/10

This brownie doesn’t stray far from its dank name. It packs a powerful punch that starts to take effect fairly quickly (for an edible) and lasts for several hours. Again, this ranges from person to person, based on his or her size/weight and the amount of food in the stomach at the time of digestion. In my personal case, it lasted for almost four hours.

The smell doesn’t signal any potency within. Unfortunately, when eating this little delectable, it doesn’t provide the best chocolate flavor… largely due to the sizable amounts of marijuana mixed in (which you will definitely notice). Just wash it down with a glass of milk and you’ll be good to go.

One thing I wish was on the packaging was the amount of bud used in the recipe and also the strain type. Still, it is well worth the $10 price tag. Overall, a great edible that doesn’t break your wallet and leave you asking, “That’s it?”

If it works for you as it did for me, you’ll be looking to increase your brownie budget.

Medical Marijuana: Misty Haze

February 27th, 2007 by Ryan

Misty Haze

Misty Haze is a sativa strain that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg yet provides a nice, quick high. A great break from the low range buds ranging to the super intense buds.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Strain Misty Haze
Type Sativa Dominant
Pros Very underestimated
Cons Short lasting high
Price $20/g, $60/8th
tFS Rating 7.0/10

I saw this bud up on the board and thought to myself that I enjoy most Haze strains, so lets give this one a try. This light green bud has a subtle amount of crystals that are just enough to pack a quick, intense hit.

The high hits your face & head area hard and very quickly, lasting for about 30 to 40 minutes. After that, it mellows out to almost nothing within the next 20 minutes – some might call it a rollercoaster ride. Overall, this haze variant doesn’t have the longest lasting high but make sure not to underestimate it.

When you take everything into consideration, this strain is a very decent bud for the level of highness and the price tag attached to it. You probably won’t come across this variety too often, but if you do, make sure not to look away too quickly.

“Hemp for Victory” WWII Era Hemp Production

February 26th, 2007 by Alex

Here is an 11-minute documentary on World War II era hemp production. This video shows the amazing disparity between the government’s current-day stance compared to earlier in the 20th century.

This video covers the growing, harvesting, production and many uses of commercial grade hemp. Unforunately, this extremely useful plant has been regulated by the government almost as strictly as marijuana, just because of its similarities.

Still, as with the medical marijuana movement, there is a groundswell of support that is slowly bringing the issue of wide-range commercial hemp production to the political spotlight.

Josh Heytvelt Mushroom Bust

February 26th, 2007 by Alex


Our friends over at Celeb Stoner were able to locate some detailed pictures of Gonzaga basketball player Josh Heytvelt’s drug arrest.

Turns out that he’s using the old ‘that ain’t mine‘ defense. Yea, I frequently find 33 grams of mushrooms randomly placed in my backpack with no knowledge of how they got there. What a coincidence.

Looks like he was planning on having a lot of fun, which has now turned into a lot of problems. Too bad he’s a member of a nationally watched basketball team, or else this would go completely under the radar.

See all the pics after the jump.

Concentr8 Dumb Drops: Lemon

Concentr8 Dumb Drops: Lemon

To start this week off with something a little different, I’m reviewing Concentr8’s Dumb Drops in Lemon flavor.

Edibles are always a challenge to review because their effects are so subjective – how big you are, what you’ve eaten and if you drink any alcohol all massively alter the effectiveness of THC being delivered to the body through the GI tract.

theFreshScent Product Recap
Category Medicinal Edible
Company Concentr8
Pros Powerful edible
Cons Bitter taste
Price $20.00
tFS Rating 8.5/10

The first positive point about this gumdrop is that it keeps well. Each one comes in its own individual screw-top case and, unlike truffles, they won’t melt in the sun. The gumpdrop itself is relatively large, with the exact same diameter as a quarter.

Both the smell and taste are relatively subtle with this edible. It’s got a light, sugary smell with undertones of hash. As you can see from the picture, this little ball of sugar packs a punch. Depending on your luck, you can get up to .8 a gram of hash in each one.

The Dumbdrops are extremely chewy and it takes a while to get the whole thing down. The more you chew, the more you start to taste the bitterness of the hash, which isn’t entirely pleasant.

These gumdrops creep up on you, with the first of the effects being felt around 25 minutes after taking the lemon drop. It’s hard to describe the exact feeling, but if you’ve taken an edible you know how it affects your body and spreads from there. This is one of the strongest edibles I’ve come across and it definitely puts you in your seat.

For the cost of $20 a pop, this is a great deal. An edible that you can rely on is a nice change of pace and Concentr8 has created something that’s worth the cash.
