10 Stocking Stuffers For Stoners

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, December, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
stocking-stuffers-for-stoners
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!

Ten Suggestions For Using Cannabis Responsibly

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, December, 5th 2014 by THCFinder

use-cannabis-responsibly

Some people do have trouble balancing their weed use with normal life. Let’s face it, while smoking weed definitely improves life, there are some situations that may just not call for it. Being a responsible stoner is important, especially these days with so much attention on the cannabis community. And while some will tell you until they’re blue in the face that they can handle their weed responsibly, it’s always nice to have a quick refresher on how to get high and get shit done!

 

  1. If you’re “too high” to get things done or you being to blame the plant for your slacking, you should cut back a bit. Marijuana should be a life enhancer, not a life ruiner. And if it is ruining your life, chances are your poor choices are the cause, not a plant. Marijuana is not a scapegoat.
  2. Avoid using cannabis before work or school (unless you feel like you do better work while high or your work isn’t dangerous). If your medical condition calls for marijuana use before work or school, that is fine. But always be sure that you’re not in danger, as well as your co-workers.
  3. Know your limit! No one wants to deal with a napper and especially if you’re going to work or school, you need to know when to stop smoking so that you can continue to focus and get your work done normally.
  4. Be aware of your settings. Some places can handle you being stoned and some can’t. You may be able to function fine at home while baked out of your mind but it’s not recommended that you go to Wal-Mart on a Saturday while baked out of your mind.
  5. Keep the laws in mind, along with any health risks. Cannabis is still illegal in most states and you need to know your rights if you happen to run in to the law.
  6. Don’t give cannabis to minors. They may think that they can handle it but without a doctor’s recommendation, anyone under the age of 18 shouldn’t ingest cannabis. The penalty for supplying minors with cannabis is also considerably higher.
  7. If your friends are saying you get too high, you probably are. People around you need to be able to communicate with you, especially at work or school, so if you’re too stoned to deal, cut back a bit.
  8. Be respectful. Don’t smoke weed in public or in someone’s house that doesn’t smoke. It’s important to make sure that everyone is comfortable. There are still people who don’t smoke weed in the world and it’s important to not step on their toes.
  9. Using cannabis with other substances can possibly have negative effects. This includes alcohol. Those that smoke weed and drink a lot sometimes experience the dreaded spins, a feeling in which everything is moving around you. This can be dangerous so it’s recommended that you don’t mix cannabis with other substances unless instructed by a doctor.
  10. Driving while high is risky but can be accomplished if you’ve managed to learn to drive stoned. I can’t stress enough the fact that driving while high is like learning to drive all over again. You need to pay attention, listen, and know that there’s always a possibility that you’ll get pulled over. Relax and don’t get too baked while driving!

20 Street Names For Cannabis

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, December, 4th 2014 by THCFinder

20-street-names-for-cannabis

The plant of many names! Cannabis has been known by so many different titles, from the classy cannabis to the medical marijuana. People every day create new nicknames for the plant and sometimes, it can be confusing as a new smoker as to what someone is talking about if you’re no familiar! Here are twenty nick names of cannabis that you might eventually stumble across, although some seem just too funny!

 

1.     Pot - extremely common, almost everyone refers to cannabis as pot.

2.     Weed - again, a very common term when talking about this jolly green plant! Aptly so, as the cannabis plant grows quickly and strong, much like the weeds your parents make you pull out of the walkway when you’re a kid.

3.     Grass - another commonly used term to talk about marijuana, probably stemming from the fact that the plant is green and 100% natural!

4.     Ganja - somewhat of an older term, still used today! Ganja was made popular in the older, popular stoner songs and some people still talk about marijuana using the term “ganja”.

5.     Dope - Ricky from the Trailer Park Boys made this one pretty popular. Although, some stoners don’t like cannabis being referred to as dope, as there are other drugs such as heroin that go by the same name.

6.     Herb - since cannabis is a plant that’s grown and can also be used in cooking, the term “herb” is quite fitting.

7.     Reefer - heard of Reefer Madness? Or have your parents ever asked if you’re smoking on that reefer? This term is a bit more popular among those who grew up watching anti-cannabis propaganda but can still pop up in conversation!

8.     Mary Jane - this term has been used to talk about cannabis for years. Probably resulting from someone’s clever way of talking about weed without anyone knowing, instead referring to the plant as a female (since you smoke the female plant).

9.     Buds - pretty self explanatory but for those that don’t know, that’s what form weed usually comes in. The budding flowers are the part of the plant that gets smoked.

10.  Nuggets - see above; “buds”.

11.  Skunk - used for weed that smells strong enough to knock your socks off, skunk weed is extremely potent.

12.  Broccoli - okay, I guess this could be a good way to talk about weed! “Did you get any broccoli at dinner last night?” “Yeah that was some good broccoli!”

13.  Blaze - used more to refer to the act of ingesting cannabis, “blaze” could also be used to describe the buds themselves.

14.  Fire - hey, when you’ve got that good weed, you’ve definitely got that fire! Used to describe the dankest of bud, “fire” is something that you’ll hear a lot.

15.  Dank - even though the dictionary says that “dank” means a dark, cold basement, people use it when talking about well cultivated marijuana. “I got that dank!”

16.  Burnie - this isn’t one that I’ve personally heard used but I could see people referring to an already rolled joint! “Want to go for a ride and spark up a burnie!?”

17.  Shatter - more of a new term, shatter is the concentrated wax that has recently made it’s appearance in the cannabis culture (even though it’s been around for years). This product is smooth and breaks like glass when touched.

18.  Dabs - concentrated cannabis extracts, usually a dark brown to an almost transparent gold. This concentrate is usually placed on a heated nail and inhaled.

19.  Crumble - another form of concentrated cannabis, crumble has the consistency of brown sugar almost. It’s not flat like shatter but instead, butters up and can fall apart if not put on the dabber properly.

20.  Wax - referring again to shatter, wax is just another name for concentrated marijuana. It can be thicker than shatter and resembles earwax, hence the name.

Five Cannabis Facts You Should Know

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, December, 4th 2014 by THCFinder

cannabis-facts-you-should-know

1.     Marijuana and hemp are not the same thing! Some people think that hemp should be kept illegal alongside marijuana, even though the hemp plant won’t get you high if you smoke it. The two plants are used for different purposes. While marijuana is used for medical purposes, hemp is used for more industrial purposes like building, clothing, and paper.

2.     Americans used to consider it patriotic to grow hemp. When the states were still just 13 colonies, the law in 1916 required settlers to grow up. It was used for rope, sails, and clothing and both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned hemp farms. There was even a draft of the Declaration of Independence written on hemp paper. Not only that but Betsy Ross sewed the flag with hemp made products!

3.     In ancient China, Ma (marijuana) was used for clothing, medicine, fuel, and food for as far back as 6,000 BC. But the use of the plant in a medical sense dates back even further to 2737 BC. The Red Emperor Shen Nung is credited with writing a document called the Herbal, which is a list of various herbs, which includes marijuana. Additionally, in 2 AD, Hua T’o used the female plant (so probably flowers) and red wine as an anesthesia while he preformed painful surgeries including loin incisions and organ grafts.

4.     A group of 5,000 smokers were examined by UCSF ad University of Alabama showed that people who smoke a few joints a week actually have a stronger external blowing stronger lung capacity than non-users. In 2005, UCLA released a paper that shows marijuana may actually help to prevent the formation of lung cancer, unlike tobacco. Tobacco contains nicotine and is a known carcinogen, while cannabis contains cannabinoids and THC, which help to defeat and prevent cancer.

5.     Hemp is an extremely versatile product that could actually save the world if used correctly. As humans, we are wasteful and the packing that contains most of what we consume ends up in landfills. It rarely gets recycled and contributes to the growing waste problem that the world faces. Hemp can be made in to clothing, canvas, rope, paper, food, and the seeds can be turned in to fuel. This would eliminate the need for cotton, gasoline, nylon, and the destruction of trees. After the hemp plant is harvested, the soil is actually in better condition then before the hemp plants were there, unlike tobacco. Legalizing hemp and cannabis would produce thousands of jobs, another thing that is needed in such a suffering economy.

Eight Edible Rules

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, December, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
edible-rules-article-thcfEdibles have been in the negative spotlight for a while now, following a few reports that suggested the tasty treats had been the cause of murder and suicide. But are edibles really that dangerous? No. Not if you know what you’re doing. While ingesting THC and passing it through your digestive system does actually increase potency (from Delta-9 to Delta-11), edibles don’t usually make people freak out. But if you’re worried about taking too much, here are eight rules for ingesting edibles.
 
  • Body mass, gender, body chemistry, metabolism, and age all effect how an edible will treat you. When buying edibles, ask your bud tender what they would recommend for your body type and age. THC effects everyone differently and it’s important to know how strong something might be before you eat too much.
  • If you’re a heavy cannabis user, an edible won’t effect you the same as someone who’s a newbie. If your bud tender isn’t asking you if you’ve smoked before, ask them what they think and if they have a different recommendation. 
  • Eating edibles on an empty stomach can have negative consequences. It is recommended that you treat edibles much like Vicodin or Percocet. 
  • Measure your edible doses in milligrams. For example, if you get a 100mg bar of chocolate and it splits in to 10 pieces, each piece will roughly contain 10mgs.
  • Taking less right off the bat is better than eating the whole edible. If you think it won’t effect you like others, you’re probably wrong. While you can always eat more of the edible, you can’t make yourself eat less. As a newbie edible eater, you need to pay attention to this kind of thing. 
  • Every edible making company has different dosages, which can prove to be difficult when you’re trying to find one you like. The best suggestion is to try multiple different companies until you find one that you like and that gives you the feeling that you’re looking for.
  • Don’t expect the same high that you get from smoking a bowl. Edibles effect the mind differently and also because of the small amount of membranes that you have in the stomach. The THC doesn’t absorb in the same way in your stomach as it does in your lungs.
  • Always remember that as of right now, there is no mandatory THC testing when it comes to edibles. Edibles are extremely hard to dose and Colorado hopes to have an edible testing department soon. Edible companies jump all over the place with their dosing information. As said above, find something that you like and stick with it!

What Is A "Marijuana Tolerance Break" And Should You Take One?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, December, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
tolerance-break-should-you-take-oneThere a handful of reasons why people take a break from consuming marijuana. The most likely reason is that you need to get a job, and that your desired employer drug tests. The second most common reason is that the break from consuming marijuana is court ordered do to forced rehab or probation or some other unfair reason. But another reason is what many refer to as a ‘marijuana tolerance break.’ A marijuana tolerance break is a good idea if you are not getting as high as you used to, and wish to get more out of the experience of consuming marijuana.
 
Most veteran marijuana consumers have been there one time or another. You puff and puff and puff, but you don’t seem to get that super baked feeling anymore. The quality of nugs or oil you are consuming likely isn’t the problem. The problem is likely that your tolerance is through the roof. This is becoming more and more prevalent as dabs grow in popularity. Most of the people I know that consume a large amount of dabs day in day out complain that they don’t get as high as they used to, and there’s just no way they can get high off of flower anymore, no matter what the quality is.
 
If this is you, maybe you should consider taking a marijuana tolerance break so your body’s tolerance level can go down. I know, taking a break from consuming marijuana doesn’t sound that appealing. I personally consume marijuana mainly to relax from stressful, work-filled days, and without marijuana I would probably go off on a person or two daily for being stupid. But, if you can handle the off days, I assure you it will be worth it. I took a few marijuana tolerance breaks during the last twenty plus years I’ve been consuming marijuana, and I can say first hand that the high you get when you start consuming again is well worth it. It felt like the first time all over again with the giggles and whatnot.
 
How long of a marijuana tolerance break one should consider taking depends on the individual. If you consume like Jay Smoker, you may want to take a week or two off (he smokes like a broken chimney). If you are like me, and work all day most days and can’t consume, a few days should be enough to get your tolerance level back in line. Of course, realize that once you start consuming again, your tolerance will go up again, so revisit the marijuana tolerance break approach again from time to time.
 
Realize that I’m saying take a break, not quit altogether. You would be taking a break in order to get higher in the future. Remember, quitters never prosper! Have you ever taken a marijuana tolerance break? If so, how did it go? Do you have any tips? How long did you go in between sessions? Leave a comment so that other readers can benefit from your experiences.
