The cannabis-infused chocolate brownie — Special Brownies — is the most well-known edible on the planet. And while there are many variations of this classic stoner treat, this recipe is my favourite. It’s also dairy free, with optional substitutions to make it vegan too!
We’ve said “talk to your doctor about cannabis” before, and meant educate your GP about its benefits for salving or managing illnesses. But there are other reasons to talk to other doctors about cannabis too, even recreational use: cannabis conflicts with medications.
I came across a Tumblr post recently warning people to cop to using cannabis to anesthesiologist … so you don’t wake up during surgery. Pretty frightening since I’m facing surgery and had no idea this was even a thing — I’ve never been anaesthetized while a regular cannabis user.
Sweet, complete, and wrapped up neat, the treats came quickly through the mail. It may not be “politically correct” to say so, but Lady Green made me fall in love with her lovely, lovely lady buds.
Twelve High Chicks thanks guest contributor John Levy of Pot Valet for this post on ridiculous cannabis myths.
Cannabis enthusiasts hear people utter the most ridiculous words all the time, especially now that science is disputing previous prohibition propaganda. Some cannabis myths are persistent, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary. So bad are these lies, that they prevent the industry from expanding. With legalization come entire populations still new to the idea of using cannabis medically or recreationally.
It took decades to alter public perception about cannabis, to make society believe it a dangerous, addictive, and poverty-stricken drug. So it will take some time for people to adjust to the reality of cannabis as a safe, effective, and healthy herb that is beneficial for human health and happiness. It is likely that weed is the most misunderstood plant in the history of humankind.
The event was originally founded in New York by legalization activist Dana Beal. We now celebrate events in not only its inaugural city but also in cities across the world.
Hey there, it’s Lillie, here to rep the fun side of activism: the steps forward in cannabis access that M.O.M.s provide!
The last few years of cannabis in Canada have seen the efforts of activists paying off massively. We’re still waiting for legalization, but the recommendations for it came through on schedule. While they may not be what we end up with, the Liberal government seems to be following through with this campaign promise. That our government would admit the damage prohibition does to society is a huge win for activism.
Vancouver, BC, or Vansterdam as we affectionately call it around these parts, is a stoner’s dream to both live in and visit. That makes it a great city for Twelve High Chicks to host our M.O.M. Cup, February 24–26, 2017. You are coming to it, right?
Vancouver has an array of diverse lifestyles, but one of the common denominators is being chill; we don’t live to work, we work to live. Our landscape here — with mountains on one side and ocean on the other — is so beautiful with its beaches, rainforests, and beautiful architecture that it’s hard not to feel in awe of one’s surroundings. And our varied nightlife is full of art shows, craft beer, and alternative events.
It’s not a boring city, and there are a lot of novel things to do — particularly from a stoner’s viewpoint. Here are some stoner tips if you’re visiting Vancouver for the first time to attend the M.O.M. Cup … or are coming at any time.
Let me tell you about it.
From a Mom’s Perspective
I am Canadian mother with my MMPR (Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations) prescription for chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, and depression. Like a lot of MMPR patients, I had used marijuana for years to treat my health problems. Eventually, with the help of my doctors, I decided to give medical marijuana a try.
Being a medical cannabis patient in Canada can be frustrating these days with all the hassles of accessing cannabis legitimately and safely. Licensed Producers just don’t always cut it. So, with so many grey areas for accessing cannabis as a patient, I decided to try ordering my buds online.
I’m searching for the best Mail Order Marijuana (M.O.M.) company that Canada has to offer. Because I value discretion in a grey market, I won’t name the sites I review. I’m sure you can figure out the recreational M.O.M. sites I tried, though.
Twelve High Chicks welcomes and thanks new contributor Miss J Green for this article.
It isn’t news for cannabis consumers but it might be for mainstream professionals: your colleagues are getting baked. Not at lunchtime in their cars like a bunch of teenagers — they are professionals — but after a long week in the office, the modern professional is turning to cannabis. Executives are toking up on Friday evenings instead of suffering through whiskey hangovers on Saturday mornings. Younger professionals are coming together for BBQs and breaking out the cannabis-infused edibles for dessert.
