How To PROPERLY Clean Your Dab Rig

Category: Glass | Posted on Mon, December, 8th 2014 by THCFinder
how-to-clean-you-dab-rigWelcome back, Spaceship Earthlings.  Now that we all have dab rigs (if you don’t, make sure you check out the article by Aaar Kellz that details how to get one on the cheap), it won’t be long until they start to become clogged with reburn.  If you chose to ignore our advice about getting a simple rig, rather than a complicated one, they are probably already getting there.  I know this because I stubbornly refused to give up my shower-head perc for a long time.  So, no hard feelings.  In fact, kudos to you, because right now we are going to tackle how to properly clean your rig.
Alright, so I am aware that there are already many established cleaning products already out there that you may or may not already use successfully.  If you are brand loyal, feel free to stay so, as for strictly cleaning purposes, these products work just fine.  The problem that I have with them is that they typically contain dyes to make them a more attractive color, and artificial fragrance to mask the fact that they are mostly isopropyl alcohol.  That said, I would suggest using the tried and true method of isopropyl alcohol.  It’s a fraction of the cost of any officially designated cleaner.
Combine one part isopropyl with one part pipe cleaners, and one part elbow grease, and you have a recipe for a clean rig.  You can add salt as an abrasive if it pleases you;  I typically use rock salt, but only in my flower rig.  If you are lazy like I am, and have the time, you can just pour the isopropyl into your rig and let it sit for a few
hours, making sure to give it a swirl every one in a while.  Once the liquid in the chamber is a nice, dark, coffee color, go ahead and pour it out.  I recommend into a flushing toilet or the garbage, as this it will resinate anything it touches.  Repeat this step as necessary. Now I know that this doesn’t really need to be said, but I’m going to
say it anyway.  Isopropyl alcohol is EXTREMELY flammable, and appropriate cautions should always be taken.
As mentioned previously, this first method I reserve for strictly cleaning an oil rig.  However, if you are interested in collecting your reburn, or reclaim, it is only step two in a larger process. Now, before we get any further, I understand you may be asking, “Why would I want to collect reburn?”   Well, the most obvious answer is that, in a pinch, you would have a reserve of reclaim from which you could take a dab when you otherwise couldn’t.  Since oil is vaporized, rather than combusted the way flower is, reclaim tastes much better, and shouldn’t at all be thought of in the same way we think of it’s smellier cousin, resin.  In fact, the clinch hit is the least of its uses.  It can be used to properly season a new nail.  Also, I’ve heard of people rolling blunts with everything from maple syrup to honey, even jelly.  Trust me, the best thing to smear on a paper prior to rolling, be it blunt or joint, is reburn.  I call these uplifting treats afterburners.  You heard it here first.  Those are just a few of many uses, which we will detail in the future.
When it comes to collecting the reclaim, you can save a little time and energy by purchasing some sort of reclaim collecting attachment for your rig.  These usually come in the form of a an extension that attaches between the downstem and the nail.  I’ve seen the run the gambit from a simple “Z” shape to elaborate contraptions one might expect to find in a Dr Suess book.  Regardless of whether or not you choose to pick up a collector, or how efficient the collector you end up with may be, you will find that the reclaim starts to collect on the various surfaces in the various chambers of your rig, including the surface of the water.  Again, the more surfaces you have given the reclaim to collect on in the choosing of your rig, the more will collect inside, and the more time you will devote to the ritual of cleaning.
When you actually reach a point when you are ready to clean and collect, and I know for some of you this will be when it is no longer possible to take a hit, you are going to need a few simple household items.  They are: a decent sized bowl, a metal or silicone-coated spoon, a suitable container, preferably silicone, and hot water.  The water doesn’t need to be boiling, but it needs to be hotter that you can typically get from your tap.  Remove the nail and the dome if you have one.  The collectors can be scooped, put through the process that follows, or if you’re really careful, you can apply a little heat from your torch and just pour it into your container.  Applying the torch unnecessarily has personally cost me both a oil rig and an ash tray at this point, so when I say be careful, I mean ninja careful.

Five Weed Documentaries You Should See

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, December, 8th 2014 by THCFinder
While some of the following movies have been around for a long time, it’s good for stoners to know where they came from! The cannabis plant has been loved by many, hated by many, and oppressed for years. With such a negative stigma attached to it, the marijuana plant needs supporters that know all of the information there is to know! It’s important to watch films such as this in order to know where we came from!
Magic Weed; History of Marijuana
Directed by Martin Baker and released in 1995, Magic Weed is about the American history of cannabis and what happened to hemp during the prohibition. With the main focus being on the American relationship with the plant while simultaneously looking at the uses of hemp in the world, this film also includes interviews with Michka Seeliger-Chatelain and Todd McCormick.
This flick is narrated by Woody Harrelson and is a great historical look at cannabis and it’s many uses. While it’s being formal, the documentary provides a bit of entertainment at the same time. This flick would be good for those who are interested in the propaganda part of marijuana prohibition, as well as the effects that this stigma has had on the US since the start of the drug war. 
In Pot We Trust
Released in 2007 and directed by Star Price, In Pot We Trust follows the cases of five people who have been diagnosed with debilitating illnesses and have been using cannabis as a medicine. The film includes comments from Dr. Lester Grinspoon as well. A great part about In Pot We Trust is that it also includes arguments from the other side of the cannabis argument. This gives stoners perspective on what we’re dealing with as a community.
What If Cannabis Cured Cancer?
If you have someone that’s telling you that cannabis doesn’t cure cancer, it would be a good idea to point them in the direction of this movie. Featuring world renowned scientists involved in the field of cannabinoid chemical compound studies, this film will absolutely blow your mind… And the mind of anyone who still doesn’t believe that cannabis cures cancer.
Clearing The Smoke; The Science Of Cannabis
Showing how cannabis acts in the brain and in the body to treat illnesses, Clearing The Smoke covers all sorts of afflictions. This includes epilepsy, cancer, pain, and glaucoma. Medical professionals, patients, skeptics, and researchers are all featured in the film. It is a must see for anyone who wants to know what the future of cannabis holds and what it’s already known to do.


10 Stocking Stuffers For Stoners

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, December, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
December is here and before you freak out about what to get your pot smoking buddies for Christmas, roll up a joint and relax. While sometimes, shopping for stoners can be stressful, THCFinder is here to make it a little easier. Here’s a few ideas to get you started on this super stoney Christmas, both for stocking stuffers and larger gifts.
Joint shaped candles
These can be used at any time of the year so giving a pothead some joint shaped candles is definitely a good plan. These are great for stocking stuffers so wrap up a little pack of them for that special cannabis lover in your life.
Rolling papers
You can never go wrong with papers and with the multitude of flavors available today, every stoner has a favorite! From the grape flavors, to menthol, to papers made from 24k gold leaf.
Pocket scale
Since some people still have to buy marijuana illegally and dealers aren’t always the most trustworthy, having a pocket scale can prove to be a huge asset. Plus, it’s still small enough to stick in the stocking.
New glass
What stoner could possibly be unhappy with a brand new glass piece? Maybe you spotted something awesome on the shelf at your favorite headshop or maybe you know a glass blower who can whip up something awesome. Whatever the case, a stoner will love a new piece of glass.
Secret stash jar
Does someone in your life smoke weed and need to stash it somewhere? There are so many different sneaky stash jars available. If your friend likes Arizona, snag a stash jar made from an Arizona can. Or maybe Pepsi? PBR? Find out what your buddies favorite drink is and make them a custom one if you want!
Pot leaf ice tray
A super cute novelty item, a pot leaf ice tray is just something funny to give a friend. The ice cubes come out looking like little pot leaves that float around your drink, looking fabulous.
Little Black Book Of Marijuana
With topics ranging from brownie recipes to hippies to pot culture, this little carry-around book is something that every stoner should have. It’s informative and interesting, with a little bit of humor as well.
Glass cleaner
Yes, you could go out and buy some special cleaner, which might run you about $12. Or you could get a simple bottle of rubbing alcohol and some epsom salt. It’s not the most amazing of gifts but every stoner loves the first hit out of a clean glass piece!
Weedy coin purse
If you’re buying for a lady (or a man, as I’ve definitely seen guys with this little bag), a 420 themed coin carrier is a great gift idea. People need a place to put their wallets and cash when they’re out traveling and smoking!
Hemp wick
Have a stoner friend who hates lighters? Buy them a big case of hemp wick! Bee wax hemp wick is a great way to smoke and a cheap little stocking stuffer that your friends are sure to love!


Chocolope (Hybrid)

Chocolope - Hybrid

With Chocolope, DNA Genetics continues their project of creating tasty short-flowering sativas and reviving the classic features of old school Thai stick. The strain's father, Cannalope, is a sativa line backcrossed for fast finishing. DNA refined this feature still further, then crossed a Cannalope male with an Original Chocolate Thai female. Tasting is believing: the result retains the special flavors and effects of the OG Chocolate Thai, and lives up to the nickname Chocolope in flavor as well as genetics. It brings back a chocolate edge that was more common among good weed of the 1980s, mixed with the fruity sweetness of the Cannalope.


Court Strikes Down Mandatory Drug Testing For Florida Welfare

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
no-wellfare-drug-testing-flArbitrary, mandatory drug testing is wrong, no matter when such a policy is applied. That includes mandatory drug testing for welfare applicants. Eleven states have passed some form of drug testing for welfare applicants. Florida was unique in that it didn’t have a suspicion based policy for drug testing applicants. Florida required all applicants, no matter what, to have to submit to drug testing. That policy was shot down yesterday by a federal appeals court. Per the New York Times:
A federal appeals court on Wednesday struck down a 2011 Florida law requiring drug tests for people seeking welfare benefits even if they are not suspected of drug use, a measure pushed by Gov. Rick Scott in his first term in office.
The three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, in Atlanta, ruled that the law, one of the strictest in the country, was an unreasonable search because Florida officials had failed to show a “substantial need” to test all people who applied for welfare benefits. Applicants were required to submit to urine tests, a measure that Mr. Scott said would protect children of welfare applicants by ensuring that their parents were not buying and using drugs.
“The state has not demonstrated a more prevalent, unique or different drug problem among TANF applicants than in the general population,” the panel said in its unanimous decision, using an acronym for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.
It will be interesting to see if this case gets challenged all the way up to the United States Supreme Court, and if so, how the Court rules. Will the Court rule that mandatory testing is OK? Will they say that suspicion based testing is OK, but not requiring each and every applicant to test? Or will they throw the entire concept out of the window? Only time will tell.
