We at Toke of the Town certainly couldn’t think of anyplace more appropriate to visit than the Mile High City — and Denver, here we come, for the Medicated Chef Contest in February. It’s for sure that authoring a Seattle Weekly “Voracious” food blog column, “Incredible Medibles,” has certainly nourished our keen interest in and enjoyment of cannabis-infused cooking.

Now, No Excuses Entertainment, LLC, parent company of iBAKE TV, along with M2j Media Group and a host of sponsors, has announced that Steve Elliott writer/editor of Toke of the Town (that’d be me, stoner) and Sarena Haskins, owner of SONshine Organics ( which hosts their Washington Farmers Market, have confirmed that they will be guest judging at the 2013 Medicated Chef Finale in Denver, CO at The Oriental Theater Saturday February 16, 2013.

Living The Dream

No Excuses Entertainment, a rapidly growing online marijuana media company, already produces the news and entertainment-centered Wake N Bake Show for iBAKE TV, which is garnering an enthusiastic audience eager to learn about cannabis cooking.
Now, iBAKE TV plans to bring both a new educational show, HIGHer Learning with Linzy Miggantz, and a new entertainment show, Sex N Weed, produced by the people at CodeFourTwenty. Both shows are scheduled to begin broadcasting in November, according to Thurlow Weed, CEO of No Excuses Entertainment, LLC and host of the Wake N Bake Show.

HIGHer Learning with Linzy Miggantz will inform viewers on various uses for cannabis oil (which has been known to cure certain cancers), what happens with your body when using the oil, and why it is beneficial. Miggantz is a Crohn’s patient is is currently using medical cannabis oil to treat it.
CodeFourTwenty has stepped outside of the normal online cannabis show with their new adult entertainment show, Sex N Weed. This show will be for the more mature marijuana audience; its Facebook page has already made an impact. Look for Sex N Weed to come out in late November.

Cooking with cannabis can be intimidating, so Emma Levy, the chef at BlueKudu, has made it easy for us. She’s created a dark chocolate cookie recipe that pairs with BlueKudu’s Polar Caps bar.

All you need to do is bake the cookies, prepare the chocolate ganache topping and frost the cookies, then chop a Polar Caps bar — which has 100 milligrams of THC — into ten pieces. Place each piece on top of a single cookie for a ten milligram dose — or just sprinkle the cookies with bits of candy cane for an unmedicated treat.

Lotions, Salves & Oils… Oh, my!
By Sharon Letts
“Why would you put something in your mouth, you can’t swallow?” my friend asked, showing me the label of a trusted tube of toothpaste. 
It was 1975. I was 16, she was 17, and the “Clean Air & Water Acts” were in effect, opening up a whole new topic of conversation at home…. How would we make our own difference? Shortly after that conversation I bought my first tube of “Tom’s of Maine” (Fennel) toothpaste, and have not looked back.
Around that same time my mom gave me my first bottle of fancy face lotion – “Oil of Olay.” The glass bottle of thin, pink cream with its black cap seemed elegant and French to my young, impressionable mind. It smelled good, was soft on my face, and I had seen it in magazines. It must have been alright, right?

This collective, in Olympia, Washington, is a real innovator among medical marijuana access points

Washington’s Sonshine Organics Also Features A Marijuana Farmer’s Market Twice A Month

A medical marijuana access point in Olympia, Washington, has taken convenience to the next level, opening a drive-through window for patients.

Having visited about 70 collectives now in my capacity as “Toke Signals” marijuana/dispensaries reviewer for the Seattle Weekly, the drive-through window at Sonshine Organics is a feature I’ve never seen before. To my knowledge, this is the first one in the Pacific Northwest.
According to Sonshine’s Sarena Haskins, the drive-through window is open on Fridays and Saturdays for the convenience of patients. “For example, busy mothers who don’t want to leave their kids in the car,” she told me.
