The Best Pot Strains For Moms

Does Your Mama Got Problems? I can help. Mother’s have a unique set of challenges when it comes to getting through the day. If you’re a working mom then life is a never-ending struggle to manipulate time and learn to live with the inherent pain that comes with leaving kids during the day. Stay-at-home mothers have many of the same time struggles, but with the added bonus of little people screaming in their faces all hours of the day. Marijuana can help with the most mundane of ailments. One of my favorite uses is to treat the awful symptoms of...

How to Clean a Bong | 5 Minute Tips Video

    VIDEO | 5 Minute Tips | how to clean a bong or watch it on my YouTube channel Stoner Glass Gets Gross There comes a time in every stoners experience when they look at the water in their beloved bong and question the cleanliness of smoking weed. Bongs get disgusting. As smoke gets pulled under the water and cooled, the water turns yellow, filth builds up along the sides, the mouthpiece can taste like ash, and bowls get clogged and caked in sticky resin that does not come off in hot water. I’m just keeping it real. I...

VIDEO | 5 minute Tips: How to Grind Weed

  On Grinding your Cannabis Hey ya’ll! Check out today’s 5 Minute Tips topic: all about grinding + breaking apart weed. I remember, back in my teenaged-weed-use days, handling the stuff itself was something that I rarely did, it was always a job for the boys. So much so that as a clueless adult I would find myself needing to google all sorts of stupid crap: “How to roll a joint” “How to buy drugs”  “How to safely buy drugs… on Craigslist”  “How to smoke a joint without your apartment neighbors knowing” “How to put the weed in a pipe”...

Picture Post! | Diamond Glass Volcano Bong

    New Glass is like Christmas Some weeks ago I busted my beloved multi-chambered honeycomb percolator bong. Just so you know, this is unfortunately going to happen, considering how often a bong is used and handled. So, when it happens, try not to dwell in your misery, and instead, embrace the opportunity to get something new. I wanted something with a large base and lots of bubbling. My favorite online headshop, www.dankgeek.com, has lots of tempting options, but I ultimately went with this beautiful, modestly sized, Volcano bong by Diamond Glass. And I’m in love! This is a...

Needle in the Hay: Cannabis, Elliott Smith, and Depression

Cannabis and Depression: Why this means something to me. For most of my life I have experienced dark “spells”. It’s a major depressive disorder, but when I was younger I didn’t know that. The spells would always start with me fixating on a single thought, like a scratch on a record. My eyes go foggy, seeing and not seeing. As the thought repeats, again and again, I physically feel a weight draping over my body, like a weighted blanket. The weight is pain. It’s crying, screaming, rage. But it’s silent. It occurs only in my head, and while it’s...

MADAS 28 | Tolerance to Cannabis | Mom & Dad are Stoned Podcast

Tolerance to Cannabis is one of the most misunderstood aspects of the stoner lifestyle. When the occasional asshole asks me, “how can you possibly parent when you’re stoned all day?!” I can barely contain my eye roll. Non-stoners just don’t get tolerance or the concept that a regular cannabis user is substantially less affected by weed than the recreational user. It’s a pet peeve of mine, people assuming that cannabis affects everyone, in the same way, so in today’s episode we are educating ya’ll on tolerance- the magical concept that allows stoners to be happily medicated and high-functioning.    Podcast:...

Why Use Pot? | A Rant About Why Parents Use Cannabis

A Rant about Why Parents Use Cannabis In my capacity as The Stoner Mom I receive a lot of judgement from people who have zero cannabis education. Like, none. So I get why other parents, especially mothers, refuse to come out of the cannabis closet. People are dicks and assume a plethora of things based on their evenings watching Fox news with their hands in their pants. I’d like to say this clearly to those people; your preconceptions based on your ancient, public school drug education program does NOT QUALIFY YOU TO SPEAK OUT AS TO WHY EDUCATED ADULTS USE...

Dabbing for Beginners

WTF r Dabs? For the beginner, doing dabs might look a little like… crack. We see the images on Instagram, of young and pretty women with their torch aflame and a perma-stoned smile. And we get scared. I mean, butane? Hot pokey tools? Are we chasing the dragon here? Certainly, none of that stuff has a place in a responsible parents house… right? The truth is, doing dabs, or dabbing, is simply a fast, clean way to get as stoned as possible as quickly as possible. Instead of smoking flower (what we call traditional marijuana), you are smoking a cannabis concentrate,...

How to Smoke Weed Without the Smell

  Managing Smell in a Cannabis Friendly Home The question I get asked again and again, more than any other question, is some form of “how does your house not smell like cannabis??” From the house itself to my children’s school items, people want to know how I keep from stanking up everything. When I was a newbie stoner I was semi-paranoid about the smell. I would often smoke weed in the car with the BFF, and when it was time to pull ourselves out of a hot-boxed car, we would spray ourselves with Victoria Secret Body Spray. (Which...

Motivational Monday- Travel with Weed!

  High by The Beach: Travel with Weed When contemplating entering an American airport with cannabis, the average responsible adult is likely to start sweating profusely before deciding no freaking way. I mean, we’re not idiots. But when you are a medical patient, you find yourself in the peculiar place where your right to medication, legally prescribed and legal in half of our states, is endangered. And it can piss you off. You ask yourself, who is the fucking government to tell me that I can’t use my prescribed medication on vacation? There is a point when your personal...
