How many of ya’ll out there blaze it up before hitting the gym? My people. Hell, maybe your a little less initiated and you dabble in using cannabis edibles or topicals as your post workout routine for relief. Wherever you fall on our little spectrum, you my friends, are the latest trend.
According to results from a research survey published by Frontiers in Public Health, cannabis use and fitness is on the rise in legal states.
605 people took the survey. The survey targeted people 21 years and older in recreational marijuana states who had liked some sort of cannabis page via facebook. In the full sample, 494 participants (81.7%) endorsed using cannabis before and/or after exercise and 111 (18.3%) did not.
I had the chance to chit chat with a couple that frequents our store as well as our very own Tacoma Center YMCA. For anonymity sake we’ll call them Jay and Nay.
“When I smoke before playing basketball it puts me in a different zone, I get more focused in on the game and have more fun.” Jay said.
“I like to smoke sativa before going to the gym normally, but lately I’ve been on a fruit chew kick,” said Nay. “It seems like it helps so I can lift more and ride the spin bikes longer.”
Nay says that she prefers our Ceres brand Fruit Chews to some other types of edibles on the market. They don’t leave a bad taste in her mouth or make her more thirsty, so its a good product to use before the gym.
For all of those post workout aches and pains without the consumption Ceres has some of the most desirable products on the market available for topicals. The Dragon Balm by Ceres is easily our most popular topical product on the shelf. And you can get it out the door for $15.
I always compare Dragon Balm to the famous Tiger Balm in smell and consistency. Pro-Tip, its better, cause its jam packed with cannabis! Dragon Balm has a broad spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes as well as camphor oil and menthol essential oils. As i stated last week, different ratio’s of cannabinoids can be more beneficial for various ailments, and everyone is different so its always helpful to come in and explain what you’re looking for to our staff. Dragon Balm has 175mg THC, 175 mg CBD, and 20 mg CBN.
Topicals such as this will only provide relief and never a psychoactive effect. So don’t you worry you wont get high from this stuff.
Whether you are using marijuana to push your personal limits at the gym, or to cope with the healing and relief process. We pride ourselves at The House of Cannabis in carrying a product to fit every one of your cannabis needs, so come on down and chat it up with our knowledgeable staff and we’ll get you stocked for your next workout session.
Its that wonderful time of year again my weed smoking compadres. Crop-tober is finally here. All the beautiful sun grown marijuana is almost finished ripening to its optimal potency. Patience guys, it’s almost ready to hit our stash jars.
Lets dive into this a little bit and think about the impact the outdoor October harvest has on us.
Realistically, the raw bud harvested in October probably wont be ready for packaging or further processing until around thanksgiving or even a little bit after. So we gotta keep in mind it takes a little while to see the impacts trickle down from our crop-tober season.
What I’m getting at here people is we should see a lot more weed be available from producers and processors here in the next month or so, and you know what that means… drumrolll… cheaper prices to the masses!
Right now the price of an ounce of weed in our store is ranging from $50 all the way up to $315 for some top shelf. I don’t see the price dropping any lower than $50/ounce any time soon and like, lets get real, that’s already too low. What we will see is the quality get a lot better at those lower price points.
Bargain shoppers be warned! We are going to start reaping the benefits of crop-tober sooner than later, so stay vigilant people.
Michael Winslow is coming to Tacoma! Appearing Sunday, between 5PM and 6PM at House of Cannabis – Tacoma for a Meet and Greet. Come meet “The Man of 10,000 Sound Effects” and experience his stunning gift in person, in an intimate environment. After the meet and greet, 30+ lucky fans will board a party bus with Michael to enjoy an elevated tour of evening-time Tacoma with hilarity and hijinx certain to ensue over the next 60-90 minutes.
In order to be entered to join the VIP bus, you can do one of two things (no purchase is necessary… You must be 21 years old.
1) you can share the Facebook Event to your own Facebook page (it needs to be a public share so we can see it and put your name in) OR…..
2) Come in to the store and write down your first name and phone #, and put it in the envelope for the drawing. That happens at 5PM on Saturday, and we’ll be reaching out via phone immediately thereafter to notify folks.
We can now accept debit and credit cards through an LCB approved processor, with a super low $1 charge. We’ve also dropped our ATM fees to just $0.50 per withdrawal!
Now you don’t have to be nickel-ed and dime-d to death by fees from both the weed store, and an out of network debit transaction. Some stories we have heard from customers are hair raising, including up to $8.50 in additional fees to the list price of the packages purchased.
Part of the reason we had not be able to bring card services to you to this point was the cost prohibitive fee that ALL the other weed stores charge you when you purchase. Rather than sharing the load, they pass along all those fees to you to maximize their profit.
At House of Cannabis, we think a little differently about things because we are in this for the long game as the little hometown chain that could. From our roots in Medical Cannabis at places like Tacoma Holistic Collective, Cannatonics Society, and Rainier Xpress (Olympia), to the House of Cannabis chain in Washington State legal weed (Tacoma, Tonasket, and Carlton), we are FROM Tacoma. #LocallyOwned and #VeteranOwned, we care about you. We care about our city.
The evolution of the electronic dabber has leaps and bounds in the last few years. I remember my first load your own dab pen, The Game’s Jesus Piece G-Pen. I used to rock that thing with the lanyard like it was going out of style. I bought it secondhand off one of my buddies, man, I got at least a good couple of months out of that thing before it crapped out on me. Keeping in mind the tech of those old school electric dabbers, I chalked it up as not a total loss.
Didn’t I say these electronic dabbers have made some serious leaps and strides in the last few years? The Puffco Peak and Vuber portable dabber are testament to that statement.
We are currently carrying both in stock at Tacoma House of Cannabis.
The Puffco Peak being the crème de la crème.
First time I hit one of these puppies I was in one of our vendor’s hot box on wheels. We were smoking on some strain that I can’t remember, taking fatty globs out of a big jar of what we’ll call one legal limit of dabs.
The strategy we were using that day was to put roughly a half g of our finest into the ceramic bowl, set the Puffco to sesh-mode, and pass that beautiful piece of electronic dabware around until we were righteously baked.
Pros to the Puffco:
20 second heat up time.
4 different heat settings that will keep the bowl/banger at the perfectly desired temp throughout the whole dab with the LED light display/ haptic feedback.
Sesh-mode makes dabbing with the Puffco comparable to dabbing with a hardwired e-nail at home.
Fully charges after 2 hours of charge time, and that charge lasts around 30 dabs.
Silicone wrapped base, keeps glass protected at all times.
Awesome carrying case with all the essential tools included.
Cons to the Puffco:
One-year protection plan.
The Vuber portable dabber is no Puffco Peak, but ill tell you what, it has treated me very well in the past and it doesn’t break the bank for that portable dabbing experience.
My buddy used to whip around with his Vuber portable Dabber perfectly tucked between his Ford Ranger’s captain chair and the center console. That truck had the most perfect stash spot, you’d swear it was tailored to fit that portable dabber. We put some serious miles on that thing whenever we were out and about playing billiards.
The one thing I remember about the Vuber is having to heat it up two separate times to get that nice stable temperature, good enough for a nice fatty dab.
Similar capabilities as the Puffco Peak, but im not gonna lie, not nearly as dope of an all around experience.
Pros to the Vuber portable dabber:
Lifetime Warranty, either handled on your own or by us in store.
3 different nails/bowls; titanium, ceramic, and quartz.
Awesome carrying case with all the essential tools included.
Fully charges after 2 hours of charge time
Cons to the Vuber portable dabber:
35-45 second heat time.
2 different heat settings that keep heat for up to 25 seconds.
Estimated battery life of 16 dabs. (sometimes it takes two heat cycles to get 1 big dab)
