Miracle on the horizon? Using cannabis to fight cancer

Welcome, class. Today in Weed 101, we’re going to take a comprehensive look at cannabis as a medicine and see if we can arm ourselves with some important knowledge to carry forward.

First of all, a bit of review: Yes, this is, without a doubt, a “real thing,” not some sort of shenanigans perpetuated by stoners in an...

Netflix and Chill — 420 Edition: Don Hertzfeldt’s “World of Tomorrow”

“World of Tomorrow” (2015) is an animated science fiction short film written and directed by Don Hertzfeldt. It’s a melancholy movie, but a beautiful one – and only 16 minutes long, so why not give it a shot? It’s up for best short at the Oscars. The story follows a sweet stick-figure toddler named Emily, who receives a phone...

Strain of the Week: Aphrodisiac (Sensi)

What is it?

An aphrodisiac is anything you can take that stimulates sexual desire, and on this Valentine’s Day, Sensi is the strain of marijuana that definitely fits the definition. Her full name is Sensi Star and she’s a multiple Cannabis Cup-winning indica strain from Paradise Seeds. Her genetics have been kept...

Dear U.S. government: Medical marijuana is nothing new

I am not a doctor, nor am I trying to play one here on DGO, but, I believe it’s time to take a deeper look into medical marijuana. This is partially to shine a light on the surprisingly varied methods by which the cannabis plant works in concert with the human body in order to promote good health, and partially to put a final...

Netflix and Chill, 420 Edition: That ’70s Show

This period sitcom aired on Fox from 1998 to 2006, tracking a group of teens in a fictional Wisconsin town in the 1970s. The series normalized pot use among young people; the group of friends who regularly imbibed weren’t all burnouts or degenerates – well, some of them were – but mostly they were harmless adolescents. One or...

Strain of the Week: Great White Shark

What is it?

Great White Shark is a multi-award-winning blend of exceptional genetics from around the world. Introduced by Greenhouse seeds, it won its first Cannabis Cup back in 1997. THC hunters might mistakenly pass this one by because it consistently comes in at only 14.8 percent THC and .22 percent CBD, but its...

Weed in winter: Higher cannabidiol strains could be the answer Winter may be the time to downshift from THC-heavy strains and look into the benefits of high CDB (cannabidiol) strains or your own personal blend of the two.

Last weekend: Snowdown.

This weekend: The Broncos Super Bowl.

Next weekend: Winter. The week after that: Winter. After that: More winter.

As we make the long march toward spring, we are of two types – those who love winter and those who loathe it.

Those who love winter will spend the next couple...

Netflix and Chill, 420 Edition: Louis C.K., weed smoker

This one’s not something fun to watch while high. Rather, the subject matter is highness, and in this case, done in a thoughtful and subversively funny way. Louis C.K. has spoken of it matter-of-factly in public on multiple occasions, including his stand-up act, and has demonstrated that he is very familiar with the...

Netflix and Chill: 420 Edition

’80s-themed Snowdown is upon us. This was a decade of big hair, loud colors and Madonna. But the era was also rife with fantastic filmmaking; “E.T.,” “The Goonies,” “Indiana Jones,” “Star Wars,” “Back to the Future” and John Hughes. These movies were blockbuster darlings, but we’re highlighting a weirder, darker cult hit from...

Doing pot for the first time since ’85? Don’t get ‘tourist high’

Events like Snowdown are great because they bring a wider range of people to join the party. It’s not just the party professionals – the PLUR affiliates, the tailgaters and the habitually-up-all-nighters – attendees will include soccer moms trying to recapture a bit of that good ol’ undergraduate spirit, Jerry from accounting...

Wana Hot Cocoa

What is it?

This is the perfect warm-you-up hot cocoa for those chilly Snowdown days. It’s a single serving 10mg cannabis-infused powder you can mix with hot water or milk to keep you cozy at any event. It’s very stealth, but should always be used in legal places and kept away from kids who might mistake it for the...
