Hiring a retired athlete to push hemp products has gone from a trend to simply the way things are done in the emerging CBD industry. Now a Colorado CBD company has lured an NBA legend to do more than that.

Earlier this month, Hall of Fame basketball player Isiah Thomas (not to be confused with former Denver Nuggets guard Isaiah Thomas) announced that he had acquired a partnership in VESL Oils, a CBD product manufacturer based in Arvada.

No disrespect to strains from previous decades, but there’s no comparison between the potency of early chronic and today’s sugar-dipped space nuggets. I’m not saying that’s always a good thing — nowadays strains can be too strong for a simple afternoon toke — but we’d be fools not to recognize the evolution of cannabis. That’s like saying LeBron James wouldn’t dominate the NBA in the ’90s. Save those stale takes for the Moose Lodge.

During our recent conversation with hash-maker extraordinaire Kennn Wall, he talked about the need for stronger, sturdier strains for worthwhile cannabis extraction. According to Wall, only 5 to 10 percent of strains on the market today have the quality and quantity of trichomes to make those stiff, terpy rosins and live concentrates that connoisseurs love. Some of his favorite strains that do? Papaya cuts, specifically from Oni Seed Co. So what did I buy during my next trip to the dispensary? Papaya Cake, a mix of Papaya and Wedding Cake, bred from Oni Seeds.

The only thing better than South Park making fun of the weed industry would be South Park entering the weed industry — with some integrity. We’re still trying to find out if that’s the case, but some online nuggets have us wondering…

Through Tegridy Farms, the name of a fictional cannabis brand that popped up in an episode of the show last year, South Park Studios posted a video on YouTube July 19 that makes fun of the suit-and-tie culture trying to profit from legal cannabis. The clip appears to take aim at MedMen, an American cannabis corporation that released a short video directed by Spike Jonze about cannabis prohibition and current legalization efforts.

Combatting the stoner stereotype is the rage these days, and I’m all for it. Having moms and working professionals come out of the closet, hitting vape pens and microdosing edibles to kick ass and relax without the Cheetos, is great for diversifying the consumer image. But sometimes I just want to get giggly-baked, eat chicken nuggets and laugh at poop jokes, and I’m not afraid to admit it.

I’ve found that potent hybrids create the best shit-eating grins and munchies without causing anxiety, and Blue Dragon is a definite contender.

Chauncey Billups, a Denver native, is the greatest basketball player ever from Colorado — a star for the CU Buffs and the Denver Nuggets, one of several NBA teams for which he played in a long and distinguished career (including the Detroit Pistons, with whom he won a 2004 championship and a finals MVP).

And now, he’s joined the chorus of former athletes supporting the use of medical marijuana in pro sports.

On top of that, Billups not only confirmed that some of his former teammates smoked marijuana before games, but that he thought many played better after doing so.


YouTube has become a great resource for cannabis growers. Want to learn how to get better yields from your plants? Go to YouTube. Want to learn how to make ice wax? YouTube. There’s plenty of instructional videos on all sorts of topics posted either by legal cultivators in states where cannabis is legal or clandestine, secretive growers who don’t divulge their identities or locations.
Jason Pelletier is neither of those, according to Las Vegas police.

The 2014 High Times Cannabis Cup ran this past weekend in Denver, with tens of thousands of people showing up to get high, get happy and celebrate our favorite plant and the recent legalization of cannabis use and sales in Colorado over the last few years.
As always, the event is also the time for cannabis product makers to show off their goods. Below are our top ten eleven pipes, bongs, vaporizers and other devices on sale over the weekend.

Making money off of gold nuggets could be soon replaced by green nuggets in Alaska as a ballot initiative to legalize pot for adults 21 and up collected and submitted at least 45,000 signatures Wednesday -15,000 more than necessary to qualify it for a vote this August.
“It’s not that the initiative would bring marijuana to Alaska,” Bill Parker, a campaigner for the bill and a former Department of Corrections deputy, told the Anchorage Daily News Wednesday. “Marijuana is already in Alaska. It would legalize, regulate and tax it. It would treat it like alcohol.”

Austin, Texas resident Corey Lynn Plumlee is allegedly pretty open about his pot use. That’s nothing out of the ordinary in Austin, which has a pretty cool attitude towards pot most of the time. But when you go bragging about it on Craigslist and start offering to hook strangers up with “Cali-style” nuggets, it’s going to draw some attention.
See, Austin is a cool town, but it’s not that cool – as Plumlee found that out the hard way earlier this week.
