Oh Cannabis: Toke of The Town!



Winter finds me mostly indoors at home in Toronto. It's a sharp contrast to the long summer daze I usually spend outdoors at the lake. Still, it's a good time to complete my big household chores. Also, weather permitting, to enjoy the local, indoor GTA [Greater Toronto Area] cannabis scene. 

I'm thinking of including "Toke of the Town" in my Oh Cannabis News y Views blog. Or maybe it will be a separate stand alone green marketing feature. Dunno. I'll decide later, but in the meantime, here are some entertaining local, medical, cannabiz links, that have recently crossed my scanner. May they also help warm and cheer up your long, cold, Canadian winter nights:



High 5 to the Rescue: Toronto medical cannabis and recreational users alike can breath a big, huge sigh of relief! Despite last month's Toronto Green Market's demise, the popular monthly pop up edible markets are definitely back, under the organizational auspices of entertainment and promo group the High 5! More @ CBC

February Valentine's Day Love Market: Many, if not all of the same sellers and producers were there, among my faves; Fritz's, Sofa King, Bakery Shop, Buudabomb, Cannabiscotti, Matty's Patties, Rasta Pharoah, Canna and Sea of Green to name but a few!



High Canada's Janine Rocks the Market!

The selection of medibles was excellent! There were lots of free samples! Plenty of good deals! The latest location? A very kool, downtown, side door Queen St. W. and Spadina warehouse/ gallery location in Soho! Much fun! 

More of my favourite market product reviews below! Plus follow the High 5 @ Facebook and @ Facebook Love Market details @ EB
  

High Societies Weedy Wednesdays present THC infused culinary delights with a Trinidadian Canuck stoner flare. Yummy top marks for Chef Reena's soup, salad, shrimp, wings, and vegan Trinidad Doubles with Bara bread! Very nice desert menu too! Non infused options are also available for hungry drivers of GTA'ers headed to this weekly, very kool and groovy Hamilton dinner event. 

Expect good company and conversation. Our fellow dinner guests included other cannabis activists, patients, entrepreneurs and other assorted enthusiasts! Plenty of joints, dabs and spicy sauces are served throughout the evening. 

High Society infused dining is a very worthy, medible cannabis experience that will without doubt will become VERY popular in the daze ahead. I will write a proper review but am going to be busy for the next few daze. Meantime -make a reservation for "Weedy Wednesday" now! It's getting pretty busy! Catering options are also available! More info @ Instagram

My Weedy Wednesday: High Society Supper Club review is @ HERE!



Matty's Patties: Our Love Market regulars nail down the fast food Jamaican patty with this 120 mg THC medible classic! They pack quite the wallop! Lotsa flavour; mild or spicy beef and buttered chicken are available. Nice n' flaky crust -never too crumbly! Nor does Matty scrimp with the meat! 



Matty's serves up a perfect patty, whatever way you cut it. Come in halves and wholes. Matty's even got a straight ["Virgin"] patty too. Yummy hummus, veggies and orange sides are free! 

Hmmm. Could make for a very popular pop up street stand in the Toronto summer holidaze to come! Trez kool @ Facebook



Rasta Pharoah: The Pharoah's top notch cannabis extracts were once again a big, favourite at this month's Medible Love Market [See Above]. The unflavoured Cannabis E-Juice [900 msg per 15 ml] provide plenty of discreet, naturally flavoured vape pen refills at a big savings. The handy stopper simplifies the refill process, -much easier and cleaner than making your own DIY E-Juice, although that's increasingly a personal option I like a lot too! The Pharoah's E-Juice provides a fairly mild hit, but a very pleasant one. It's very kool and laid back to puff on all day, for whatever ails. Grade it = A+. Link @ Rasta Pharaoh



Soak In The Sudz: Howzabout trying a leisurely, trippy THC infused cannabis bath to relax dem ol' weary muscles and worn nerves on a bone chilling dead o' winter morning? Night?! Whenever?!? 



Rasta Pharoah's Cannabreeze [AM] and Cannalove [PM] Bath and Soak crystals include 275mg of THC per 400mg pack. Only epson salts and natural oils are used, very nice especially if like me you are allergic or otherwise adverse to any and all nasty, chemically manufactured, commercial scents. Blech! Canna's bath crystals are easy to dispense from the clear see thru zip lock bag. 

Or how about a 100 mg THC Canna Bath Bomb instead? Canna's colourful, infused, bath bombs literally explode in yer tub with a flowery, natural essence, turning the bathwater turquoise as you gently soak in a sea of suds. Crack open the cellophane. Drop the Bath bomb under the facet. Off we go ... but how far?



Big Question: Can You Get High??? You don't ingest the bath water, of course. Still it definitely does leave me feeling very warm and relaxed all over. Goes very nice with a good book, a vape, and a long, dreamy soak on a cold, blistery winter day. Definitely earns more top marks in my books! Link @ Rasta Pharaoh



Buuuda Boom!

Buudabomb Edibles come in 10 Teddy 100 mil THC gummy bear packs with a home delivery offer. What would you like? A "little kick" or "travel in space"? Check out the handy dosage chart. Salty. Sweet. Very fresh. Nicely packed. More @ BDB




Buudabomb -Use the Code!

M.A.D. Medibles: Here's a personal favourite! Mostly I find these trez, kool, edible gummy bears far out up Northern Ontario way. Othertimes they'll amble into the Toronto Green Market. Or sometimes show up online on Weedmaps too. 

Consistently very tasty, and fruit flavoured, salty and/or sweet, these rocking lil' Teddy's pack a very flavourable, scrumptious, playful bite! Still, they can get messy! Don't carry them around in your pocket too long! But don't worry .... you won't!

I scored a fresh batch of two 50/50 mg packs on my visit to Sudbury last weekend. Gobbled them all up over 2 or 3 daze! Perfectly yummy fun! Be sure to keep a watchful eye out for these friskly, lil', high time, party bears! 





Sofa King Bakery Cosmic Pretzels: Tasty, and bite sized, these are just plain, darn good pretzels, cosmic or otherwise! Very fresh too! I find them perfect for watching TV on the couch during our seemingly endless, Canadian, winter nights. With 100 mg THC and 36 mg CBD distillates per pack, these "Cosmic Pretzels" will surely launch you into orbit. Takes about 20-40 minutes. Or you can just nibble all night, to stretch out your TV night high! Nice touch -Expiry dates are included!

Sofa King's Honey Roasted Peanut Butter [THC=200/ CBD=70 ml per 125 ml distillate jar] and hand picked Strawberry Fields Forever [same] natural jams are also sure to chase this winter's Blue Meanies away. What a sandwich!!! 

Note well: Sofa King is a regular on the local medible market circuit and home delivers in the GTA; infused cereal bars, cookies, brownies, rice crisps, chocolates, capsules and more @ SK





IN OTHER NEWS: 

Toronto Green Market: Heard it through the weed patch that the High 5 will be continuing these medible events under another nom de plum. Stay tuned ...

Sea of Green: Talked to Jamie at the Love Market on Sunday! The dispensaries new Dundas St. West digs continue to serve all customers 19 plus, just like when he worked with Marc Emery at both of Cannabis Culture's Church Street shops. Jamies considering expanding operations into Saskatchewan and BC with legalization. Maybe branching out into a vapor lounge too. "Oh Cannabis" will be off to review his new Sea of Green location very soon, weather permitting .... I'm not a big fan of the great outdoors, up this way, this time of year .... but stay tuned!



OUT + ABOUT

I'm going to be out and about Toronto doing some more reviews. I DON'T make any money off this medical cannabis advocacy blogsite, nor do I sell anything myself. If you have a cannabiz location, product or event, you'd like me to review, kindly email me @
