Budtender Confidential – Cannabis King for the Day

Cannabis has been cultivated around the world for centuries and has a long and complicated history. People across the globe utilize its many unique medical, industrial, and recreation properties and have built communities around cannabis. For those of us that already consume, we know how sharing cannabis brings people together. We’ve recognized the world-changing properties of cannabis and dreamed of a world where we can experience cannabis like any other activity. After almost 100 years of cannabis prohibition and stigmatization in the United States, cannabis is finally getting a fresh look with renewed interest. More and more research is highlighting the positive benefits of cannabis, as a result, it is becoming more socially acceptable. The United States has a long way to go before cannabis is completely normalized, but that got me thinking, if I was in charge, there’s definitely a few things I would change… So we asked Budtenders […]

Budtender Confidential – Stranded on an Island with only one Cannabis Product

Imagine yourself on a sandy beach. The sun is shining, and the sea breeze brushed your face. There’s nothing quite like getting blazed at the beach. The only problem is that you are stranded on a deserted island. However, you have one cannabis product with you. (When I travel to states without recreational marijuana laws, it feels like I’m stranding myself on an island.) Luckily, cannabis is good at making light out of a dark situation. ‘Castaway’ would have been a different movie if Wilson was a bong instead of a volleyball. But the question remains: which cannabis product would you have with you? We asked Budtenders around the state of Washington which product they would bring with them if they were stranded on a deserted island? Let us know what cannabis product you’d take with you in the comments below!

The Edibles Have Evolved

Have you stayed away from edibles because they are too weak, too strong, or too unpredictable? Rewind the tape to 1987 when your crazy uncle whipped up a plate of weed brownies. And when you asked how potent they were, the only response you got was a weird smile. Eating one of those space brownies was a leap of faith into the unknown. But in today’s i502 recreational market, edibles have evolved to a point where those concerns are no longer. Gone are the days of the mystery edible. Today edibles are rigorously tested for consistency and potency. Testing labs like Analytics 360 meticulously measure for the potency of cannabinoids, microbials, mycotoxins, residual solvents, and terpenes. This allows for an unprecedented degree of control as to what goes into edibles. For people purchasing edibles at an i502 retailer, this means you can control the exact amount you want to consume […]
