It's said that your eyes are the windows to your soul, but have you ever stopped to think about what you're feeding your soul on a daily basis? I mean, think about all the random things you just glance at...
Well, follow me through the HIGHlights of a 14-hour journey through my day to see how medicinally potent my soul has become. What visual food did the black holes of my soul suck through my pupils today?
11:51 AM - DOWN THE HATCH ON AN EMPTY STOMACH
I decided to start my visual experiment out by gulping down a Perfect Peace Pain Pill, from The Growing Kitchen, on an empty stomach, to help ease pain, anxiety and emotional distress for the duration of this day. The 200 mg dose of cannabis flowers is said to give me minimum psycho-activity and maximum relief, thanks to the 17.4mg of THC and 1.3 mg of CBD.
The pills o' peace contain the following ingredients, and are said to soothe your soul (which I found fitting): love, organic cannabis, organic wood betony, organic kava kava, and organic blue vervain.
12:29 PM - SNOOP'S FAVORITE STRAINS TO VAPORIZE
Snoop, being the giving man that he is, brought Conan one of his signature G Pens and of course Conan had to ask what kind of herbal oils Snoop prefers to vaporize in his G Pen. Now, I'm not sure if Conan O'Brien will ever really use the vaporizer but it's interesting to hear the favorite strains of an O.G. stoner like Snoop Dogg.
His favorite strains are Kush, Girl Scout Cookies, Bubblegum and Snoop really enjoys the aroma of Master Kush while he's getting a massage. I still have yet to try out the Girl Scout Cookies strain myself, but Purple Kush and God's Gift are some of my favorite strains... what are yours?
12:32 PM - SCHOOLBOY Q GANKED DANK FROM HIS MOM
To avoid having to go into detail about how he lost his virginity, ScHoolboy Q opened up about the herbal relationship he had with his mom growing up. Sure, he admits that he used to smoke up his mom's stash from time to time, but he touched on a subject which I've only recently found to be true: Smoking with your family helps you bond with them!
So, next time you run into some family troubles, maybe you all should ante up for a fat sack of goodness, and hash it out over a few bowls.
12:41 PM - KUSHMAS INSPIRATION
Now, given the fact that I celebrated random holidays for every single day of the year in 2011, I'm still kind of burnt out with the whole celebrating mainstream traditional holidays, where the traditions don't really mean much to me. But when I saw this image on Tumblr, I definitely was inspired to come up with some kind of personal tradition that requires me to decorate my future cannabis plants.
I mean, isn't that just a beautiful sight? It sure as hell would smell better than a slowly dying pine tree, and picking buds up off the floor is a lot more rewarding than pine needles.
2:00 PM - MIDDAY SMOKE SIGNALS
But what kind of herbal enthusiast would I be if I didn't spend at least part of today heating up some infused flowers, and inhaling their remains? I love the relaxed feel of living in Colorado Springs but, if you want to feel truly relaxed, you may want to partake of some of the keef-infused flowers you can pick up at the A Wellness Center on Wood Avenue.
Thanks to my sister, I was fortunate enough to inhale the sweet vapors of Headband infused with Grape God kief... and damn is it delicious!
2:29 PM - FIRST COUNTRY TO LEGALIZE
And after getting lifted and browsing my Instagram feed, I was greeted with the fact that Uruguay just became the first country to fully legalize the growing, selling and consuming of cannabis.
And while this legalization may not be as lenient as more local legislation has been, since they're only allowed to purchase up to 40 grams a MONTH and grow 6 plants of their own a YEAR, at least their age restriction is only 18 and they have the ability to join smoking clubs, which can collectively grow up to 99 plants a year. Things are beginning to shift in the right direction!
3:15 PM - A DAB OF TEMPTATION
But even though this image is laced with temptation, I somehow resisted going back out for another round, and melting down some wax of my own. I'll save that for later tonight. 😉
Being the new age "old head" that I am, I wasn't that open to the dab movement at first. It seemed like a lot of work to create, and the whole rig and blowtorch thing really turned me off to it, but the idea and usage of dabs has become a little more appealing over time. I may never get used to calling buds "flowers", but feel free to teach this old dog some new tricks, because I'm always open to trying new things.
3:20 PM - LA WEED'S TOO STRONG FOR GABE
Comedian Gabe Liedman has a big gripe about Los Angeles... their weed's too strong! And while I can't exactly agree with that, I do like his take on watching Intervention while smoking weed. Drugs are real!
But I think we all can agree that, regardless of our tolerance levels, smoking weed should be all about relaxing and living a comfortable life, not slipping into a coma or being "pranked" on A&E.
3:39 PM - SNOOP'S $99.99 CYBER JOINT
I'm familiar with the Snoopify app (I've seen Snoop use it a number of times) but hopefully Snoop isn't really expecting anyone to dish out $99.99 just to include the magical cyber joint in their images. Now, as Snoop tries to explain it, he does refer to it as "virtual", so perhaps he's not talking about real money, but it looks like Snoopified Conan can afford about five more of those overpriced joints.
Are any of you avid users of the Snoopify app, and have you opted to include the cyber joint in your images?
4:23 PM - VITALY MAKES SNOOP PARANOID ABOUT A GREEN SPIDER IN HIS HAIR
Sure, Vitaly has nothing to do with hip hop and, when you think of stoners, he's not the first guy to come to mind, but both Snoop and Vitaly have links to Maker Studios, so the YouTube prankster got a chance to be on Snoop's GGN Network. And while Vitaly may be a bit annoying at times, doesn't seem to be able to handle a blunt, and doesn't know the difference between spit or swallow, it does take a special kind of balls to attempt to prank an O.G. like Snoop on his own show.
Maybe next time we see Snoop and Vitaly together it'll be for a real prank video.
6:15 PM - MOTHERS AGAINST FALSE AWARENESS
But as I was browsing Facebook, I was happy to see that at least some of my friends are honest with their children about the true "dangers" of smoking marijuana. It's going to get harder and harder for government agencies, schools and the powers that be to convince the newer generations that cannabis is a harmful plant, especially since the truth is just a Google search away.
The propaganda of old is melting away and the mothers of the present are all for their kids smoking herb, if they so choose to do so. And even though I don't have any kids yet, if smoking marijuana keeps my future offspring from becoming an alcoholic or addicted to poison like nicotine then I'm all for it!
11:15 PM - WAX-CAPPED BOWLS
I knew I'd eventually slip up and forget to visually document a portion of this day but, since moving to Colorado, I have become much more open to the tradition of topping off a bowl with some earwax, to help really get me ready for bed every night. I love the potency of it, the strong smell and taste, and how much easier it is to just pop it on top of your flowers, instead of breaking out a rig and a blowtorch.
But I try my best to limit my dabbing to late at night, since I love my indicas and don't want my tolerance to be untouchable by normal flowers.
1:00 AM - WIZ DOWNS A SPACE CAKE
For those of you who are familiar with Wiz Khalifa, you have to almost expect at least some kind of weed reference in almost every video he puts out these days, and this DayToday episode doesn't crush that expectation.
Wiz appears to still be in Amsterdam for portions of this video, so can you guess what he chose to consume? A space cake! And not just a small piece of it either; he ate the whole damn thing.
1:45 AM - JOEY LOVES BONG RIPS
What better way to end out your night than by watching an episode of Getting Doug with High? And I have to admit that, thanks to the dabs earlier, I started passing out near the end of this video and soon crawled into bed, but damn does Joey Coco Diaz love taking bong rips!
Even though I've heard of him before, I'm not sure how funny he really is, but he just seemed to want to keep the locomotion of pot going, as he took hit after hit of a variety of strains. He's probably smoked the most on Getting Doug with High, when you compare him to all the other comedians they had on so far.
But now that you've navigated the visual maze into the inner workings of my soul, how medicinally potent was YOUR day?
