Let’s Go Weed Shopping: Lube, Caramels, Vapes and More

Do you enjoy relaxing your mind? Your muscles? Your vagina?

Guess what? Marijuana can help you do all of these things. Perhaps more importantly, do you live in, know someone in, or know someone who knows someone in Colorado (or California)?

It is time to give them a call.

1. Here at BlackBook, we’ve had our eyes/V’s on Foria for six months. This cannabis-infused lube is made with coconut oil, and thus is edible. 😉

Better yet, women have reported feeling a sort of localized high. Think: heightened sensation, warmth, tingling, a sense of swelling or engorgement after using the weed-infused lube, or a hyper awareness of vaginal tightness, which lead to a greater sexual pleasure. Get it, girl.

2. May we recommend a post-coital massage along the same lines? Dixie Elixirs makes a number of topicals–body lotion, balm, and even a bath soak.

3. Moving away from sex to one of life’s other greats: food. Indulge in a cookie, (or a pie) from Denver’s Sweet Grass Kitchen.

3. Stressed at the office? Why not get a little high. No harm, no foul, if your boss is cool. And, if you need to be discreet, you can be thanks to the subtle little dropper (it could be echinacea!) Alta Botanicals Anxiety Relief Tincture.

4. If you’ve had the munchies for days and have not changed your clothes but still want to keep the high going, why not indulge in a steamy, relaxing shower with some hash body wash.

5. When you come back around to actually smoking the stuff, who knows where you might be! Strolling in the park? At a black-tie gala? This vape could fit in the teensiest of Chanel clutches. You never know.

6. Another choice pick is the Da Vinci Vaporizer. To be honest, I’m no expert, but here’s a text I got about this vape, verbatim, from a friend who knows: “You can’t smoke out fat with a lot of smaller vapes, but the Da Vinci will get you high as a motherfucker.”

7. To keep in your bag, at your desk, to save you when you’re suddenly starving. Weed infused apple pie caramels can never be a bad idea.

8. Lastly, pens are all the rage. So maybe one of those too.

When all your shopping is done, please enjoy this video of 2Chainz arguing with Nancy Grace about marijuana on the news.

Colorado Restaurant Offers Weed and Sushi Pairing Menu

An inanely easy math equation:

(people) + (weed) = people high on weed hungry for food

It’s an age-old quandary, and entire plot to the Kal Penn/John Cho vehicle,  Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle: stoned people enjoy eating food. Am I blowing your mind?

Almost as much as I’m thrilled that Colorado has legalized marijuana, I’m also enjoying the major news networks’ coverage of the precedent event. The mainstream news outlets are simply having a field day by sending their most straight-laced reporters into marijuana facilities so they can ask guys with dreadlocks the difference between Kush and the Bammy.

Since we live in a capitalistic society, one credo rings true: where there’s supply, there’s demand; a greater number of marijuana users in Colorado means an increase in munchies. Keeping that in mind, a Colorado sushi restaurant chain is gearing its menu towards weed-orientated clientele. (Ready for a joke?) Looks like this place deals in high-class dining! (Insert laughter here.)

Hapa Sushi began its pro-weed menu back in 2009, catering to the medical marijuana crowd. The pro-weed Boulder/Denver chain features “menu pairings” to go along with what you’ve been inhaling.  (The also have a gluten-free menu for those who don’t like gluten – but that’s off topic.)

So what’s on the menu?

Here are some of the suggested dinner-and-dope combinations:

  • Pakalolo Shrimp with Pakistani Kush
  • Honey Miso Salmon with Sour OG
  • Katsu Curry with Blue Dream

I highly recommend trying the Pot Stickers – they have nothing to do with weed, they just taste really delicious. Hapa Sushi’s ad points out that the restaurant has been “ergonomically designed to reduce paranoia.” (Yes, but can you tell those unagi rolls to quit staring at me!?)

I’m just waiting for the day where they open the very first cocaine-friendly Chinese restaurant where an hour after eating you’re simply hungry for more cocaine.
