Introducing Prodigy: Spry’s All-In-One, Wireless, Electronic Dab Rig

Category: Product reviews | Posted on Tue, April, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

logo_stamp_2-01-01Unless you’ve been living under a rock over the last few years, you probably know that “dabs” are all the rage and have been steadily increasing in popularity amongst marijuana consumers. There has been a lot of progress made in the concentrate and extraction scene in a short amount of time: from new extraction hardware and techniques, to better refinement processes, from discreet vape pens to the development of e-nails.

I’ve been to a lot of trade shows over my years as a cannabis activist, and it’s always interesting to see new companies pop up, and who’s got a cool new idea. Now that I’m doing marketing and advertising for TWB, I’m super interested in seeing what kind of businesses are preparing to take our industry to the next level.

Well, this week I think I’ve found one of those businesses.

I had the opportunity to get a sneak peak at a working prototype I believe the whole marijuana industry will be talking about very soon. A new start-up called Spry has designed an all-in-one, wireless vapor rig for concentrates and extracts.

They have created a product that simplifies dabbing for those who are intimidated by the complicated process of using a torch. It comes with a built-in battery powered titanium nail that can heat up to 1000 degrees, reaching a dabable temperature after just 30 seconds. The temperature can be adjusted digitally and comes with a wireless charging dock.

“After trying my first dab, I saw the need to simplify the process. It was very intimidating. The unfamiliar titanium nail, the dentist-looking dab tool, and the rig that looked different from any other bong I’ve ever seen. Most unsettling was the need for a crazy looking torch; It all seemed kind of dangerous to me,” says Nainoa Kuna, CEO and Founder of Spry.

Along with a Silicon Valley based product development firm, Kuna and his start-up designed a prototype for the Prodigy that will certainly get people talking.

Jon Stewart Calls Out 'Total Narc' Chris Christie For Hypocrisy On Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

Jon Stewart celebrated 4/20, the unofficial marijuana holiday, on Monday night's "Daily Show" with his special "Uncle Jonny's Super Kush Totally Chillaxed Sticky-Icky Informative Marijuana News Report."

The segment got off to a promising start with an over-the-top promo from CNN for a weed special that Stewart said sounded "cool as fuck," but in reality turned out to be a serious report about medical marijuana and tax revenue from legal weed sales.

"Well you fucked me, CNN," Stewart said. "I'm ready for Weedstock, the whole thing, and you're giving me this. This is an actual news report."

However, nothing harshed his mellow quite like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), the "one guy who's got to be a total narc."

Christie claims that if elected president, he would crack down on states that have legalized marijuana. He said the drug is addictive, banned under federal law and that states "should not be able to sell it or profit from it."

But as Stewart points out, Christie legalized Internet gambling in New Jersey -- something that's addictive and frowned upon by federal law.

"Well there is a difference, though, to be fair," Stewart said. "If you smoke too much pot, no one comes to break your fucking knees."

Happy 420!

A new shopper’s high for 420: Marijuana-themed products are smoking hot .

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, April, 20th 2015 by THCFinder

Marijuana is not just for getting baked anymore. As it becomes legal in more states, the wacky tobacky also is leaving its leafy green mark on American marketing.

From backpacks and bed sheets to toilet seats and thong underwear, cannabis culture is inspiring pot-themed products faster than Wiz Khalifa can burn through a dime bag.

And in advance of 420 — a kind of Stoner’s New Year celebrated on April 20 — plenty of people have been shopping for legal ganja goods, even where the drug is still vilified and against the law.

On a recent day, Kerry Baker (yes, that’s her real name) browsed the marijuana-themed products at Spencer’s Gifts in Oak Park Mall.

“420’s (here) and I have to represent,” said the 25-year-old Leawood woman, who sports a small marijuana-leaf tattoo on her neck. “For so long, weed was just underground. Now it’s starting to come into the light. And even though it’s not legal here yet, just look at all these weed products you can buy at the mall. There’s a growing market for this stuff. And that probably means more changes are on the way.”

Of course, critics are holding their noses at this trend. Some decry the products’ influence on children. Others worry about the message they send about a drug that’s still federally illegal.

“I think this is just awful,” said Janice Rogers, a mother of three from Olathe who tries to keep her children away from such things. “This drug is against the law. And I don’t think they should be allowed to sell all these products with pictures of that leaf on them. What message is that sending?”

While you could buy marijuana T-shirts and posters from head shops in the ’60s, you likely couldn’t buy a marijuana leaf dog toy, “Chronic Candy” lollipops made with hemp oil, or gold-tone, crystal-embellished marijuana-leaf dangle earrings — especially not from one of the country’s largest retailers.

Now Amazon.com has an entire section called “Weed Gifts.”

Jason Spatafora, managing partner of marijuanastocks.com — known as the Wolf of Weed Street — said the trend makes sense.

“As the industry becomes more accepted to a wider populace, these products and novelty items are going to sprout up everywhere because it’s not as taboo,” he said.
