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.

$50-1/8th

Dragon by Luv 8

The strain that needs no introduction, time after time I’ve labeled this one as the most potent, gassy, cough inducing strain in the store. If it weren’t for our manager Jenn’s recommendation we would have never even had this company on our radar and for that we all owe her an un-payable debt. I’ll warn you right here, once you smoke the Dragon by Luv8 it’s hard to find another strain that packs the same punch, so buyer beware.

Strawberry Milk and GMO by Lucky Devil

These two strains are the only other two that we sell at the prestigious $50 a 1/8th price point and once you indulge you’ll know why.  Whether you are looking for that fruity, strawberry, diesel-ey flavor from the Strawberry Milk, or you want those heavy, funky, earthy undertones of savory flavor from the GMO, you wont be disappointed with spending half a bill on these delightful strains. Sometimes you got to treat yourself.

$45-1/8th

Any other Luck Devil 1/8th

Wedding Cake, Jungle Cake, Gelato, Dolato, Larry Bird, Scooby Snacks, Grape Pie, Grape Tahoe Cookies, Tropicanna Cookies, Mimosa… holy shit the list for sure goes on. One thing I can honestly say about Lucky Devil is that I’ve never smoked a strain from this company that I wouldn’t absolutely endorse. Everything that they bring to market is of the upmost quality. Lucky Devil, Just Do it.

The Glue by Luv 8

Gorilla Glue #4, or as Luv8 would put it, The Glue. GG#4 is probably my all time favorite strain. It’s a well known one, and probably carried in just about every weed shop in the state. Because of the fact that everyone and their sister freaking grows a different version of this strain, whenever I try a new growers GG#4 I always try to compare it to Luv8’s The Glue. I have yet to find a better one, and not for lack of trying. The Glue by Luv8 is the answer to your GG#4 blues.

Point Break by Phat Panda

I’m always down for some funky, fruity, Tropicanna Cookies type of flavor in my weed; it’s not for everybody though. It takes a unique palette to thoroughly enjoy the classic Tropicanna weed flavor. It took one random morning with the persuasion of a hand rolled doobie by budtender Miguel for my doors to be opened to the magnificence of all that is the Point Break strain by Phat Panda. It has all the potency of their strain Trophy Wife crossed with the intense flavors of their Tropicanna Cookies. Miguel, I still owe you one for showing me this one.

$35-1/8th

Sin Mint Cookies by The High Point

I am willing to bet anyone that Tacoma House of Cannabis’ very own budtender George has smoked more Sin Mint Cookies than anybody, ever. This dude smokes so much Sin Mint Cookies we have to put a limit on how much of this shit he buys just so he doesn’t literally clean us out as soon as we re-up. George you gotta save some for the rest of us! Without even considering the excellent price point, Sin Mint Cookies is otherworldly. It has some of the most trichome ridden nugs in our store, topped off with a kick-ass, grounding, classic indica type of high. The Sin Mint Cookies is the heavy smoker’s choice, for a low price of $35 an 1/8th.

M.A.C., Runtz, and Biscotti by Loud

Loud has been bringing some serious heat lately. Three of their strains have been top sellers in our store the last week, and if you don’t grab them soon they will be gone. With that in mind these three need no more boasting, just know that if you don’t grab them now you’ll have to wait on the re-up. And trust when I say you do not want to do that to yourself.

Sherbet, Wedding Cake, and Peanut Butter Breath by Mr. Grimm

If I didn’t mention the re-stock on Mr. Grimm I’d be doing you all a disservice. If I only had to choose one of the strains from Mr. Grimm I’d probably pick the Peanut Butter Breath, but then to make that decision I’d have to ensure that I could still purchase a Sherbet and a Wedding Cake in the near future. Hell, I’d probably just have to get a gram of all three. Mental note for later; don’t do yourself a disservice, try all three.

Professional Sports Need to Continue to Say Yes to Cannabis

A lot has happened in the last week in regards to the overlapping of professional sports and the marijuana scene. One week ago Major League Baseball (MLB) removed marijuana from the “drugs of abuse” list, and added opiates, cocaine, fentanyl, and synthetic THC.

The MLB took huge steps in the right direction with this decision. Some people are saying that the drug of abuse list was altered in lieu of the 27 year old Los Angeles Angels’ pitcher Tyler Skaggs death earlier this summer. His autopsy found high levels of opiates and fentanyl present. Its also noted that his death was an accident.

Earlier this week Josh Gordon of the Seattle Seahawks got suspended indefinitely for violating the leagues policies on performance enhancing drugs/ drugs of abuse. As soon as the decision was made by the NFL the Seahawks had to cut ties with him and aren’t allowed to be any sort of communication. Radio hosts on 710 ESPN Seattle throughout the week have been commenting on the story with some interesting theories.

Most are revolving around the truth of the fact that Josh Gordon has agreed to be in a profession that doesn’t allow marijuana use and he has continued to use it. This creates the idea that a lot of the personalities on 710 ESPN Seattle have been touching on regarding this topic, addiction, and that they hope Gordon gets the help he needs.

This bodes the question, Can one be addicted to marjiuana? I’ve thrown this question around in my head a lot over the years. I think that an addiction is more of a case by case basis especially when talking about marijuana. I think if someone is taking steps backward in life financially, professionally, or socially to use marijuana than they may have and addiction and should seek help.

NFL players agree to follow a strict set of rules and in doing so the majority eventually get paid millions of dollars. Not smoking marijuana is one of those rules and for Josh Gordon he has had many opportunities to not test positive and has failed. Josh Gordon has let down many fans, coaches, and organizations. He has been been suspended five times since 2013 for some sort of substance abuse. In Josh Gordon’s case he definitely needs to seek some help and if he wants to continue playing in today’s NFL he needs to save the marijuana for retirement.

According to an article by Brandon Gustafson on 710 Sports Russell Wilson had talked with Josh Gordon and had this to say, “He said, ‘This is the place I want to be and the place that has helped change my life a little bit and I’m getting better,’” Wilson recalled Gordon saying. “You hope that he can come back to us and play with us, but more importantly it’s about him, it’s about his soul, his life, it’s about all the things that we all have to go through and overcome.”

Even though Gordon is suspended indefinitely, there is always a chance that he appeals the process, seeks help and or probation, and can come back to Seattle or somewhere else, given the NFL allows it.

And to close ill let a little bit of my inner Seahawks fan out. If the NFL could pull their heads out and learn a little from their older cousin MLB, Seattle would be better off in their post season run with a piece like Josh Gordon on our side.

In all seriousness, I think the future of the NFL and their players would be better off if they didn’t get reprimanded for having THC in their system. Being able to seek relief through marijuana could help the longevity of the players and the league in a number of ways.

NFL, NHL, MLS, (insert any other organizations Im forgetting), YOU NEED TO LEGALIZE CANNABIS!

Cannabis and Fitness

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.”

Ceres has edibles available in single or 10 pack packages, THC or CBD dominant.

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.

Ceres has much more than Dragon Balm available. They have lotions, gels, and balms available depending on your preference or where you are applying.

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.

Cannabis and Wellness

Whether your using topical creams to treat aches and pains, or you’re consuming some edibles before hitting the gym on your daily workout routine, cannabis can have a role to play with wellness. Everyday more and more people are hearing of the benefits to using cannabis for relief and the trend of experimenting with it continues to grow.

A couple weekends ago I was at one of those hotel free breakfast deals, I found myself stuck watching a Good Morning America segment to go with my coffee and waffles. They started talking CBD and cannabis and my mind started cooking up some classic OK Boomer memes and they totally killed it, I was shocked.

They did a stellar job explaining THC, CBD, and the benefits of using both together in their two minute segment. So i ate the rest of my breakfast along with my OK boomer hate and figured our little blog could use some sort of a similar little story.

When someone comes into our shop and they’re looking for something to smoke, eat, or even use topically for wellness, I always try to explain the benefits of using THC with CBD. I also find it important to explain how the products we sell in our store differentiate from things that consumers can get tricked into buying on the internet or with the latest wave of Hemp based CBD placebos out there.

Like the GMA segment eloquently touched on, your body uses what we call the endocannabinoid system to intake different cannabinoids into your body. Different receptors will intake the different cannabinoids to various parts of the body. When THC is used with CBD, The rate in which the receptors intake these cannabinoids greatly increases.

I like layman’s terms, so I use them. This is some science level stuff right here courtesy of physicians lab

So when a customer is looking for a non-psychoactive CBD edible, i always stress to them it is important to have little amounts of THC even at a ratio of 10mg CBD to 1mg THC or a 10:1 ratio. This ensures your cannabinoid receptors will intake all the non psychoactive CBD that you are ingesting, and you wont be getting sold a placebo.

That may have been confusing. And if it was I’m sorry. I’d love to give it another try and can probably do a better job in person. As well as show you firsthand the wide range of wellness products we sell with varying CBD to THC ratios. So come hit up your boy, and keep in mind that we have CBD Sunday sales!

Puffco Peak vs Vuber Electronic Dabbers

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.
  • $420

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:

  • $120
  • 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)
