Reefer Madness 2: Toronto's Queen Street West "Friendly Stranger" Cannabis Culture Shop is pulling out all the stops to fight for our indie lounges and dispensaries in the June 7th provincial election. Their unique strategy involves special storefront window displays, "social activism" discounts, a website and twitter tags.

420 Toronto



420 Toronto 2018: Our local 420 celebration proceeded outside City Hall, without an allusive, official permit, in one huge collective act of civil disobedience! High times were guaranteed for all, except unfortunately our weed vendors. Alas! Only in Toronto, eh -Faced with a huge, growing crowd, Toronto Police Service "yellow jackets" focused their efforts on shutting them down with stern warnings, depriving 420 partier's of a handy above ground green market instead. An eye witness reports one dealer getting busted with a whole whack of weed in the underground parking garage below city hall. Still can't independently confirm, but would not be surprised. There certainly wasn't any shortage of boo. Another 420'er told me he'd lost count after the 30th joint passed his way! Stay tuned for my upcoming blog!!!

Save Our Dispensaries: Many of our local, downtown shops wavered their membership requirements, allowing anyone with a medical cannabis card, or on one occasion folks over 19, to check out their wares. Nice marketing move! Also very helpful under the circumstances! See Above!

Toronto City Hall: Howzabout some good, old fashioned, peaceful civil disobedience? 420 Toronto festivities are proceeding at Nathan Phillips Square, out front Toronto City Hall, despite the lack of an official permit! Seems that the city is very worried that .... OMG!!!! .... cannabis [nee pot, marijuana, boo ....] .... will be smoked there! 

Enough is enough! Legalization keeps getting rolled back. It sure looks a damn lot more like Prohibition 2.0, than any serious reform of our unjust cannabis laws! 

420 is our high holiday! Let's celebrate it in high style as committed cannabis activists! Check out the kool roster of activist speakers, and live music, along with your many, favourite, green vendors expected at this year's big "free" event 420 Toronto! @ Facebook!  



Hotbox 420 Block Party: Get your tickets to continue the festivities afterwards with Abi Roach's Hotbox crew in Toronto's Kensington Market. Lotsa hip hop, house music, high times and stoner fun including "shatter shots" and a "Canna bar". Tickets y info @ Facebook

PS: I arrived late from 420 City Hall to find the smokin' Hotbox lounge packed to the rafters. Tunes still blasting at the warehouse party. A splendid time was guaranteed for all!

HIGH 5 GREEN MARKETS 



High 5's "420 King" Medible Pop Up Market features 25+ cannabis vendors and a comedy show hosted by Paul Thompson and friends. Mark April 18th 6:30-10:30 pm. on your calender. Location TBA! Tickets, info etc @ Instagram

Hallelujah! The High 5 markets continue to "pop up" across Toronto on a monthly basis. You'll still find many of your favourite "Oh Cannabis: Toke of the Town" cannabiz producers and vendors here with their latest wares! Stay tuned here for more upcoming dates and reviews!

LET'S VAPE!

Unlike an old fashioned pipe, reefer or bong, vaping is very clean, convenient and discreet. Who's to know if you are smoking E-Juice nicotine, THC or CBD's?!?

Toko [LINK] and Alair [LINK] are widely available across Canada and in the GTA. They're pretty good, with new challengers constantly arriving on the scene. Each vape pen is usually preloaded with 1/4, 1/2 and 1 gram of E-Juice. A disposable pen ranges in cost from $45 to $70. A rechargeable battery with cartridge? from $70 to $120 on average.

Problem: The batteries can and do fail. The cartridges sometimes leak, especially with the cheaper pens. Reliable dealers will gladly replace them. Hopefully, have refills in stock. Generally, it's a very good product, but problems do exist.

Solution: DIY -Make your own E-Juice! Surprise! Your local, nicotine, vape shop sometimes stocks everything you need, minus of course our favourite drug. You'll find it's very easy to make. More reliable. A lot cheaper too.

Stress you know that the Vape shop doesn't sell weed, if they get uptight. Hopefully more will soon get with the THC E-Juice program, once weed is legalized in Canada. Maybe realize that there's a huge market for THC/ CBD E-Juice and supplies! Not just E-Juice nicotine! Bleech! Fortunately, in Toronto, there's at least 2 good Vape shops whom are already very hip. Ready, willing and able to please we cannabis aficionados! Check out E-Smoke Canada [LINK] and Vape To Vape [LINK].



Ready! Set! Go! Start with a good, stand alone, rechargeable battery. Personally, I like a reliable Aspire [LINK] or even the hardy el cheapo E-Smoke Canada's EVOD Twist. Generally these are quite reasonably priced, in the $20 to $50 range. Add a refillable tank. Aspire carries a solid line of glass-omizer refillable cartridges, many in the $20-$40 range.  

At the vape shop, you'll also need to buy some EJ Mix Vapor Blend [LINK], or other cannabis compatible E-Juice. Also, an E-Juice syringe, a small glass container, a stir stick. Cost me roughly $40 for 15 mls plus re-usable supplies at E-Smoke on Yonge Street Toronto?

Note well: 1 ml of EJ Mix will make you 1 gram of very potent THC/CBD juice to vape, at quite a savings. It's much cheaper than, let's shelling out $45 to $70 for a 1/4 gram disposable pen. Another plus is that you can mix the strength according to your own needs and tastes -medium to light for everyday use, stronger to party! 

Next: Break up a gram of your favourite Shatter, [$45 to $70] or BHO, Honey Oil or Wax. Add to a ml of EJ mix into the glass container. Microwave for 10 seconds or so. Stir til smooth. Inject it into your cartridge using the syringe. Screw on the battery. 

Inhale. Hold. Exhale. Smile. Enjoy!

ASSORTED EXTRACTS



Rasta Pharoah: The good Pharoah's back at the High 5 market! This time I checked out their coconut, grape seed and olive oil 15 ml/ 300 gm THC Tincture. It works like this: Use the squeezer to dab under your tongue for maximum, instant effect. Dose as needed. I found it subtle, almost like a body stone. Also check out the Pharoah's 30 ml/ 375 gm Strawberry Concentrate. Just add it to water, soda or your favourite cocktail. Great for a party sized, punch bowl too! Let the high times begin! Rasta's Rasta Pharaoh

MEDIBLE MASH

Thanks god for medibles. Here's a few of my favourite snacks with a vegan theme. Each is quick and easy to prepare! Dose to your own personal taste! In Ontario, the ingredient's are readily available online and at yer local green market:



Peanut Gallery: Did you know that a THC infused peanut butter, honey and banana sandwich has as much protein as a steak? Enjoy a new post kiddie high with this 2 kool snack! Ingredients available @ Sofa King Bakery



Double Time: THC Chef Reena Rampersaad's infused chick pea doubles, with an extra spoonful ... or two ... or three of her killer infused "Sunshine Sauce" is a real spicy treat for those of us hungering for something different. Follow Chef Reena Instagram



Matty's Patties are proving to be popular, green market favourites. This time, we try the "Callaloo" 60 mg infused vegan patty. Nice flaky crust. Tons of veggie stuffing. Take some home to freeze. I had one for lunch later on in the week. Added lotsa Chef Reena's Sunshine Sauce for an extra special kick! Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! Got love in my tummy! Matty's Patties @ Facebook!

More to come ......

GUMMY'S





Green Chef's 100 mg Medical Cannabis Gummy's: Check it out: 4 jolly 25 mg jelly squares per pack. Take one for a nice kick, all 4 for space travel. Makes for a nice, sweet, and delectable addition to the green market gummy wars. Green Chef's @ LINK

CHOCOLATE



Buudabomb's Chocolate Sweet Tooth: Another High 5 favourite, Buudabomb is back with their new 5 pack 100 mg infused "Milk Chocolate" duds. Also a new THC infused "Cookie and Creams" too. The milk chocolate dud's melt in your mouth. Are sweet, but not too sweet. Dose separately -at 20 mgs each, they pack quite the kick! Or take all 5 for earth orbit! 5-4-3-2-1 .... Blast off BDB
