Top Shelf Re-Up: Lucky Devil

Connoisseur smokers rejoice! Lucky Devil just stopped by and our guy dropped off some excellent new strains this time around, as well as your tried and trues.

How many of you guys are fans of the Lucky Devil joints that come with the bonus nugs!? I know its a lot because we cannot keep these freaking things on our shelves. Like seriously they will probably sell out within the next week or two.

If your not keen on these guys here me now! They’re one of my favorite products we carry that are affordable for everybody. There a great tester product because just like it sounds they give you a pre-roll plus a good sized nug so you can pack a bowl for later.

Well they are back, and they blessed us with some dank ass new flavors, as well as some of our beloved strains that have created that following. Our current line up of joints with the bonus nug: Blueberry Headband, Dolato, Sundae Driver, Marionberry Kush, Wedding Cake, Animal Cookies, Cookies and Cream, Larry Bird (my personal favorite), Tropicanna Cookies, Vortex, and King Tut.

We also got the re-up on single grams, eighths, quarters, halves, and ounces on the aforementioned strains so swing on in and get while the getting is good.

New Grower Alert: Artizen/Dream City

Alright I may have told you a white lie just now. We’ve been having Dream City on our shelves since the jump. But guess what?! We just started carrying Artizen!

Out of everything on our shelves these two company’s are absolutely killing it with their online/social media presence. But most importantly what they’re putting into their jars.

Hailing from Port Townsend, Washington, Dream City is sun grown marijuana just how God intended it to be. Well… kind of. They have what I can only observe via the inter-webs a kickass state-of-the-art green house facility that when needed can manipulate the forces of nature, to the best interests of the plant.

Did I mention the amount of Bud Porn that goes into these guys’ instagram? Click the link above and see for yourself. Currently in house we have five strains from Dream City: Nilla Wafer, Jack Herer, Candy Breath, Dosi Pie, and G-Glue #4. As they say on their webpage “Anything in the purple packaging,” and we’ll know what you mean.

Drumroll…The much requested and anticipated Artizen has finally appeared on the shelves at Tacoma House of Cannabis and we couldn’t be more stoked. Grown in Lacey, Washington in a ultra-modern indoor facility, Artizen and it’s indoor facility sets the precedent for indoor growing in the state of Washington. After nearly an hour of searching their instagram and their webpage I still cannot get enough.

In the words of the late great Chris Farley (Tommy Boy) Tommy Likey.

Since this is our first time carrying Artizen flower we only got our hands on two strains. Their Purple Punch and Gorilla Snacks just hit our shelves this week as a sort of first time order test batch. So help us help you and buy these guys up. In return our ordering team can re-up with many more strains in the future. From what I can tell they have 20+ strains available at any given time. And I’d love to get our hands on more. Eighths from these guys’ are retailing for $35 which of course qualify for our top-shelf eighth sale on Wednesday. So do yourself a favor and swing in then and treat your pocket book to a 20% OFF.

We have Flavored Vapes!

So I’m a little late on this post but flavored vape carts came back on February 8th and for the foreseeable future they are here to stay. According to The Seattle Times, Governor Inslee’s senior public health policy adviser Molly Voris says the governor is “disappointed” with the amendment, and that they are still pushing for a broad ban on flavors.

Well for the time being Inslee can suck on it (as “it” I mean flavored vape pens of course), because we got a heck ton of them back on our shelves.

Spoil’d And Hellavated have the majority of the flavored vape carts that we carry and they brought back all the same delicious flavors as they had before, they also blessed us with some new ones.

Spoil’d is probably my favorite flavored vape company that we carry. The premium method of extraction they use is unparalleled within the industry when it comes to distillate extraction. They came through with the classic flavors like Blueberry Pomegranate (my personal favorite), Fruity Peddles, and Strawberry Mojito. I enjoy the Blueberry Pomegranate because of the sour twang that goes along with it. It’s a must try.

Full gram Spoil’d Vape carts retail for $40 a gram but if you purchase them on Tuesday you can enjoy a 20% off discount from that price!

If you’re like many consumers and want the same delicious flavor vape for a little bit cheaper of a price, Hellavated might just be the thing for you. We also have a myriad of different flavors from these guys. I mean variety is the spice of life.

Leaf Chief 4.5 grams for $35?!

The title says it all guys. Leaf Chief is the hottest, bang for buck, quality product deal in the store. First off you get these sweet mason style jars with dope ass handles on them. Secondly, they are packed with a high quality indoor looking greenhouse eighth of flower and two half-gram pre-rolls! Say no more fam. When you pick up one of these delights you are ready to smoke on the way to the smoke out.

Leaf Chief recently came out with a kick-ass new product as well, coco leaf rolled blunts. All I’m saying is if you’re trying to get with the times and get away from that nasty, unhealthy, tobacco blunt wrap you should at least give these guys a go. They’re definitely helping me stay away from the Swishers and Backwoods. Two pack blunts that are 0.9 grams a piece are coming in at $15. Do your lungs and your pocket books a favor. It’s 2020 ya’ll, stay woke, tobacco blunts are passé.

New Grower Alert: Fireline Cannabis

Fireline Cannabis has got to be one of my favorite new carries on our shelves. Let me tell you why, it rhymes with Snarlic Snookies. It’s their Garlic Cookies cross and I cannot get enough of this shit. Skunk GMO is a cross between 91 Skunk VA x and Garlic Cookies, which is surprisingly a Sativa Hybrid. I say that because its one of those Sativa’s that really kicks your ass to a stoney pulp. Do yourself and cop some of this before I buy it all.

Before I stop this Fireline Cannabis post I have to tell ya’ll about the Ghost Mints. One of our regulars has literally bought one of these puppies everyday for the last week and still cannot get enough. This shit right here is the TRUTH! If she knew I was cluing you guys in on this one she’d probably be a little pissed at me but ya know I’d be doing you guys a disservice if I didn’t. So your welcome.

We currently are carrying Fireline Cannabis at $40 an eighth but remember if you swing in on Top Shelf Wednesday you can cop one for 20% OFF. Get while the getting is good. Peace and Love Ya’ll

Sous Vide Cannabutter

Today I woke up inspired. Maybe it was the Christmas gift I received from my brother, maybe it was the sativa I blazed up pre breakfast. Hell maybe it was a combo of the two. Either way lets get this shit going.

I was gifted an immersion circulator a.k.a. a sous vide cooker.

Most cooking aficionados might start dreaming of the magnificent steaks and fancy infused chicken or salmon meals in their future, and ill get there eventually.

In the meantime lets make some chef quality cannabis butter.

In my opinion you should never use good smoke-able weed for edibles. So lets reach past the premium, towards some of that outdoor from last summer.  I’m going to use a combo of some stem-ridden buds and other bags that I have laying around that I know I wouldn’t enjoy if I were to smoke. We’ll even switch to a step-by-step cookbook recipe style format as we dive into Tacoma House of Cannabis’ very own official Sous Vide Cannabutter.

Ingredients:

  • ¼ to ½ oz. of your not so dankest buds
  • Varying amount of water
  • 1 lb. of unsalted butter

Equipment:

  • Immersion circulator
  • Appropriate sized jar with lid
  • Blender
  • Strainer/cheesecloth
  • Big pot

Step 1

Fill up large pot with warm water, attach immersion circulator and preheat water to 185 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Lets get our desired amount of dried out buds and add them to the blender. For this batch I will be using roughly a ½ oz. (maybe a little more) of some stuff I got laying around. If you want extra potent cannabutter use a little more, if you are worried about battling a face melting edible high use a ¼ oz. or less. Put dry herb into blender and add water on top. If weed is extremely dry and soaks up water add more water. Blend up marijuana and water mixture. Make sure to not over blend or pulverize product in blender, you want a nice course grind.

Step 3

Chop up butter into squares set aside. Take blended water and weed mixture and empty from blender into appropriate sized jar. Jar should have enough room to fit butter and blended mixture with spare room. Put 1 lb. cubed butter into jar and seal

Step 4

Place sealed jar in 185 degree preheated water bath. Let immersion circulator run its process for at least 6 hours. You will have a separated oil and cannabis product sitting on top of water in sealed jar.

Step 5

Strain water/marijuana/butter mixture through several layers of cheesecloth into another jar or container of equal size. Squeeze out remaining product in cheesecloth and Set strained mixture into refrigerator over night.

Step 6

You will be left over with a hardened infused butter floated on top of water. Discard water underneath hardened butter. Enjoy by substituting infused butter instead of butter or oil in your favorite baked treat!

How to: Smoking on the Slopes

One of my favorite nostalgia moments when hitting the mountain is when you’re on the chairlift and you get that first intake of a dank smell from other mountain shredders getting their ganja on in the clean alpine air. Of course that usually makes one yearn to have a little smoke session of ones own, and hopefully the cycle repeats.

The numero uno, unrivaled feeling I have had on the mountain is having said toke session and then cruising some untouched, fresh powder lines through various tree runs or trails, capped off by sticking some gnarly little cliff jump. And to share that with a group of friends or family is my personal ultimate good time whilst cruising the slopes.

The issue of not being able to consume cannabis as openly as tobacco or beer and alcohol is still 100% real and at the mountain you have to be especially weary of this. Personally I’ve never let that slow down my consumption and I’m gonna key y’all in on some pro-tips I’ve picked up over the years to efficiently and safely have a cannabis filled day on the mountain.

#1 Doob tubes.

When you’re at the store stocking up make sure you get some pre rolls that come in joint tubes. Or if you roll your own, save them from previous purchases, you can always reuse those things. The little plastic or glass tubes pre-rolls come in have saved me much heartache over the years whilst on my more physical adventures. The doob tubes are handy because they are not bulky and they keep the joints in pristine shape until they are ready to be blazed.

#2 Mindful of where you blaze

I know weed is legal yada yada, you ain’t gotta tell me, I am the furthest thing from a closet smoker. Although, when on the slopes its important to not push the envelope. Cannabis consumption on the mountain should still be done in a discreet fashion. Don’t smoke on the chairlift unless you got the mountain to yourself and even then be careful you could get in trouble from a not so cool lifty and get your pass taken. I always urge peeps to find the trees, have a pow wow, its always a good time and sometimes a needed break. For the extremely initiated, pack the dab rig in the car depending on where were skiing you might have access to stop in throughout the day. Or hit it in the A.M. and let it chill in the whip until your ready to head home. Do yourself a favor and dump the water out in between uses. There is nothing worse than a bong or dab rig impeded by frozen water.

#3 Carry a Pack

Carry a pack of joints, carry a pack of edibles, hell, carry a pack of blunts if that’s your thing. Whenever I’m on the mountain and trying to consume these things its always smart to stash them in an easy to grab spot. Whether that’s in my snow jacket or my bibs, its key to have easy access to the danks and a lighter! Personally I don’t like carrying a backpack, but lots of my friends have in the past and it works for them. If carrying a backpack, stash it with all the essentials plus some water or snacks to guarantee your endurance on the slopes.

#4 Be Responsible

Charge your vape pens, pack a couple lighters, you know, plan for the day. Nothing worse than needing something that you don’t have and being stuck without it on shred day. That goes for the non paraphernalia items as well. Pack a multi tool, extra pair of goggles/gloves/ change of clothes. I don’t know how many times I’ve been blessed by someone bringing something that I forgot or vice versa. Preparation is always key to a good time. And now for probably the most important thing to remember, pack in what you pack out. Leave your smoke spot cleaner than what you left it and ready for the next set of shredders to do the same.
