Music and marijuana: They might not be synonymous for everyone, but for those who love the combination, enjoying one without the other just isn’t the same. In particular, many musicians have attached themselves to the plant, so it only makes sense that cannabis strains be named in their honor from time to time.

Remember dial-up Internet? I can still hear that scratching beep on the phone line. Cable and DSL made life a little easier and porn a little clearer, but wi-fi made that era look like the Stone Age. Wireless Internet has been a game-changer: sharing information, bar debates, family dinners — it’ll never be the same. White Fire OG Kush, known as WiFi OG for short, came around in the early 2000s, about the same time I got rid of my ethernet cord. It didn’t change the world like Facebooking on your phone at Starbucks has, but it’s made a mark on dispensaries all the same.

Bud and Breakfast is a cannabis-friendly getaway that could make for a good place for the ceremony or perhaps a nice honeymoon retreat.

As summer inches toward autumn, another perennial shift looms on the horizon: wedding season. September remains the main target of the marriage-industrial complex, and there has been a recent emergence of weed-friendly weddings as California has made headway on legalizing cannabis.

At a weed wedding, guests may no longer feel compelled to sneak out for a puff when there’s a bud bar for the bridesmaids, a joint in the groom’s boutonniere or a weed-infused wedding cake. “Planning a weed wedding is like planning any other wedding,” says Cat Goldberg, CEO of marijuana event company WeedBar L.A. “We work with the couple to match their specific needs. Like different strains of cannabis, no two weddings are alike.”

Whether a couple wants to offer guests an alternative to alcohol or simply celebrate their nuptials with some nugs, the modern marijuana marriage has an abundance of options.

Blackberry KushHerbert Fuego

As a self-appointed expert on underappreciated fruits, I feel confident saying that blackberries don’t get the love  and attention they deserve. Blackberries are bigger than raspberries, sweeter than blueberries, and don’t require any pitting or spitting like cherries and strawberries. Get rid of açaí and add more blackberries to your life, America. Let’s make breakfast bowls great again.

Blackberry Kush has been largely overshadowed by the Blueberries and Grape Apes of the strain world, but it’s achieved a moderate shine in Denver, where I’ve found at least a dozen pot shops carrying it over the past year.

1906 Edibles

It takes some planning to combine your morning coffee break and a wake ‘n’ bake, two rituals widely practiced throughout the country that can produce widely opposite results. The folks at 1906, a cannabis-infused chocolatier based in Boulder, are ready to help you out with a new twist: You eat both your cannabis and your coffee.

The first time I wrote about pre-rolled joints, I labeled them the hot dogs of the cannabis industry: “Cheap to make, easy to consume and extremely convenient – but do you really want to know what’s inside?” Most of the time, you don’t.

Over the past few months, though, shops have started to carry more pre-rolls — not from their own grows, but from wholesale companies dedicated to joints and little else. They may be more expensive than what you’re used to, but at least they’re full of whole flower and not leaves and snickelfritz buds.

Are they worth the money? I smoked them all to find out.

It’s quite an achievement for a dispensary to breed a new strain in-house and then watch it grow in popularity. For example, L’eagle’s house strain, L’eagle Eagle, is one of the finest sativas in town, and we’re not likely to see another take on it, because L’eagle created and owns it — and who would want to share genetics like that?

Then again, it’s arguably even more impressive when a dispensary grows a strain that’s commonly available and does it so well that everyone else stops trying. That’s why I’ve always appreciated what the Clinic has done with Panama Punch.
