While marijuana can be added to all sorts of foods for medicating without smoking, baked goods require more than just adding pot. Twelve High Chicks thanks regular guest contributor Tracy Curley for providing us, and you, with her recipes for cannabutter and canna-oil. Try ’em yourself, but remember that everyone reacts differently to edibles. Please be careful with dosage, give edibles time to work, and don’t treat your munchies with more pot-filled food!

When Lisa Campbell, Chair of the newly formed Toronto chapter of Women Grow, approached me about being on the steering committee for their Signature Launch event I was more than a little hesitant. After being a founding member of the dysfunctional and now barely visible NORML Women’s Alliance of Canada, I had no interest in women’s groups or gender politics of any kind. But I like and respect the women involved and I wanted to support them.
So what is Women Grow?
Without a doubt one of the hardest things facing organizers who want to put on a cannabis judging event these days is finding a venue where people can smoke inside. With nearly every city in Canada having no-smoking bylaws it’s become an almost impossible task. In Saskatoon, the Prairie Medicinal Harvest Cup holds their three-day party at the downtown Odeon Event Centre, where for the last four years judges have been able to vaporize or dab inside but have had to go out to a tent in the alley to smoke joints or pipes.

Some drugs — like sugar, alcohol, and caffeine — are legal and their effects widely researched, while those that are in the law’s grey and black areas – like cannabis – are not as understood. So something to consider is how these drugs interact, which came up during a road trip I was on recently.
The cover is a familiar red, featuring a not-quite-right but familiar character and not-quite-right but familiar pot paraphernalia.
Theodore Geisel never drew a bong for a Dr Seuss book, but if he had, it would look like the one created by Chip Crumb for the front of Dana Larsen’s Seuss-satire Green Buds and Hash.
The popularity of dabbing has led to an increasing demand for glass rigs and other tools of the trade but what exactly is that fancy art sculpture made of and what is the best way to care for it?
Nowadays, most quality glass used in oil rigs, bongs, pipes and other smoking devices is borosilicate glass. Regular household glass is made from a mixture of sand, sodium-carbonate and limestone but add boric oxide to it and presto, you get borosilicate glass.
I first was introduced to Brian O’Dea, a polite and distinguished gentleman, when I travelled to Ottawa in December 2014 to meet other cannabis freedom activists and to screen Adam Scorgie’s The Culture High. With a polished demeanour and extensive vocabulary, Brian wouldn’t strike you as the type of person who would ‘move’ copious amounts of cannabis around the world. He is educated, experienced, and skilled in his endeavours. He’s known to be one of smartest criminals the DEA has ever managed to catch; it was only after he’d retired as drug lord that the DEA finally managed to gather enough evidence to convict him.
I learned recently that there isn’t going to be a TY Expo in Toronto this year. I find that sad and frustrating.
The Treating Yourself Expo, TY Expo as it became known, started in 2010 and was Canada’s largest marijuana-based trade show/expo up till 2013. In 2014, in a last-minute bid to save the event, it was presented as the Champs Expo after they took it on.
Four-twenty—or if you prefer, 420—is much more than a number, to hundreds of thousands of North Americans it’s a celebration of a lifestyle. Four-twenty became code for smoking marijuana or toking up in the mid 1980s. To this day countless people light up, vaporize, rip the bong, dab and more at 4:20pm. Others wish friends and strangers alike a happy 4:20 as the clock marks this iconic time.
Lismore into Nimbin, The Cannabis Capitol of Australia
After a week in Byron Bay, with a new tattoo, a near epic need for marijuana, and a continuous parade of 20-ish, scantily clad, sexy, Aussie ‘schoolies’, this old cat was ready to move on to Lismore, gateway to Nimbin and all things cannabis in Australia.
Sunday I was on my own for the day, and I had big plans.
Like most secular countries, Sunday in Byron Bay is much like any other day, with only banks and the post office closed. It’s the day of the big weekly market held down near the beach.
