5 Horror Movies To Watch When You’re Stoned
Hansel & Gretel Get Baked (2013)
Okay, so this one is technically a comedy-horror, but we figured we would ease you into being too tripped out. Hansel & Gretel Get Baked is essentially a retelling of the classic fairy. Only instead of luring children into her house with candy, the witch uses a special weed strain of her own design. If nothing else, this film has a moral we can all take to heart: only trust dealers with reliable sources.

Hush is a tense horror film full of things we’ve seen before but can never get enough of. Plus it includes a kickass heroine, a frightening premise, and a creepy stalker in a white mask.
The Shining (1980)
Love it or hate it? Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining is, hands down, one of the most iconic horror movies. And it is amazing to watch when you’re stoned. Focus on the cinematography. When you’re high, the terrifying visuals of this film will squeeze their way into your brain and stay with you. Forever. It is one of the scariest horror movies ever. Why? Because it generates terror and has expert filmmaking technique.
Okay. If you haven’t ever watched Suspiria, you need to drop whatever you’re doing, spark up a joint and find it online. It’s one of the best horror movies period. And smoking only makes it better. Dario Argento’s twisted tale of a ballet boarding school is deranged and visually stunning, especially when you’re baked. Do yourself a favour and watch it!

Cannabis Dispensary Job Description Templates In most respects, running a cannabis dispensary is just like running any other retail operation.

Just like in a traditional retail
The goodness of the special cannabis herb can be enjoyed in several ways. Gone are the days when all you could think to do with cannabis is to smoke it in a blunt directly. Now, more exciting ways such as infusing it in edibles like gummy bears and chocolate, vaporizing it, and using oils and tinctures have been provided. This culminated in the massive growth of sales in the cannabis industry as more entrepreneurs are looking to capitalize on it. However, our emphasis today will be a bit restricted to the growth experienced by vape tech recently.
With this proposed bill, adults in Ohio from 21 years of age will be allowed to purchase and gain access to 5 ounces of cannabis at a time. The legalized adults can also cultivate up to 12 mature marijuana plants for personal and non-commercial use. The bill also allows villages, counties, and cities to limit the kind of cannabis businesses they will allow within their borders.
I am that perennial THC aficionado for whom hemp flowers can often fly under the radar. Despite expertise that informs me otherwise, packing a bowl with hemp nugs can feel counterintuitive. I often feel like my familiarity with cannabis is inextricable from my experience with THC, and that smoking cannabis should consistently result in some manner of intoxication.
If mine is a relatable position, Cookies’ CBD hemp flower might be what changes both our minds about hemp.
Historically, hemp has always been an industrial crop, taxonomically indistinguishable from cannabis, but with effects more likely to cause a crunchy headache than a psychotropic excursion. But today’s hemp flowers are a world away from its industrial counterpart, and far more in line with dispensary cannabis in terms of looks, aromas, and terpene profiles. For example, the CBD flowers available for online order through Cookies are an ideal example of that chemical versatility in hemp. Visually indistinguishable from top shelf flower, Cookies’ curated hemp nugs are just as sugary, dense, and powerfully fragrant as regular THC flowers.
I auditioned Cookies’ Monk Fruit strain, a hybrid, CBD-forward phenotype, and despite my own perceived competence as a cannabis professional, I was justly reminded of how much more there is to smoking cannabis than getting high.
An eighth of Cookies’ CBD flower costs $40, compared to an eighth of its THC offerings, which run between $50 – $60.
The simple and effective bright blue packaging bears the brand’s name in white cartoonish script. It’s catchy branding that would be distinguishable from across a room or on a cluttered shelf. Cookies currently stocks three varieties of hemp flower — each grown by Secret Nature — in these bold blue packages. A silver sticker is all that differentiates each sack; the bags are opaque, with only the necessary, generalized manufacturing info stamped onto its backsides and not even a peek-a-boo window to entice potential consumers.
This calculated and distinct look is part of Cookies’ appeal. The joyful script for its logo, the particular shade of blue that engulfs everything from its weed sacks to the brick and mortar shop, even rapper Berner’s affiliation with the brand all tell a story.
Cookies’ Monk Fruit CBD hemp flower
When I opened my eighth, I could see that the nugs had maintained their constitution, with only a fractional smattering of crumbs dusting the bottom of the bag. But the density of these nugs was not the first thing about this cultivar that captivated me, what hit me first was the smell.
Cookies’ Monk Fruit cultivar has a gassy, potent perfume so loud it practically screamed at me as soon as the bag’s seal was broken. There are top notes of sweet citrus, peppery wood, and resinous pine braided into a skunky sun-baked diesel that, to the untrained nose, could be substantially offensive. To the consummate pothead, however, this is not only a familiar fragrance, it’s a complex aroma that portends a robust entourage effect.
The buds of Cookies’ Monk Fruit strain are tightly structured and deep green. It breaks apart easily but crumble; it has an almost doughy give that makes it peel apart like moon-rocks rather than cured cannabis flowers. These nugs would assuredly gum-up a grinder with its oily trichomes, so I broke a bud open with my fingers and first packed a one hitter rather than attempting to roll my own spliff.
Despite the aggressive perfume, these buds have a sheer, flowery exhale. A suggestion of pine and lemon linger on the palette, but only for a breath or two post-hit. Overall, I found the smoke to be mild and silky.
A second round had me loading it into a flower vaporizer. Again, the inhale was sheer, though the phenotype’s skunk was far more toothsome at low temperatures. When combusted, the mouthfeel was decidedly delicate. When vaporized, this became a mouthful of funk that might delight a true cannaisseur, but a newbie may have a harder time tolerating.
When smoked during the day, I found the effects to be both deeply valuable and barely discernible — a slight easing of superficial soreness, a slight sharpening of focus during work hours, a mood lift that turned the corners of my eyes up and made patience more accessible than it had been otherwise. When smoked before bed, however, this cultivar is a sleeping potion panacea. A few puffs as part of my bedtime routine has ensured restful, restorative sleep, which, for a troubled sleeper like myself, is an absolute life hack.
For consumers still in the exploratory stages of their cannabis journey, Cookies can help build a familiarity with alternative cannabinoids. For more established stoner-types, these nugs have a legitimate therapeutic efficacy that make them a primo stash box supplement.
And though Cookies’ CBD flowers won’t be replacing the THC nugs in my stash box anytime soon, for nights when sleep feels particularly evasive, or days that require medication without intoxication, I’ll be thrilled to have it in my cannabis inventory.

Every now and then you come across a weed strain that is too high to handle. It hits you with effects that make your body say, “No thanks on this one ever again.” For some people, those strains are the super racy sativas, like Super Lemon Haze, that make them anxious and hyper; for others, they’re the extremely sedative strains, like 9LB Hammer, that make it hard to even function as a human. All of them teach us a lesson about what types of strains we should and should not be smoking in the future.
That said, here’s why I am absolutely terrified of smoking Blackberry Kush.
What is Blackberry Kush?
Afghani genetics and Afghani landrace strains are considered the backbone of modern day indicas. So with Blackberry coming from a mix of Afghani, Mexican, and Vietnamese landraces, and then being crossed again with Afghani, it’s easy to understand how the indica designation came to be. Across many websites, you’ll find Blackberry Kush listed as a great aid for sleep disorders and pain management. The original breeder of BBK is unknown.
Blackberry Kush flowers are often so darkly colored that they appear black. On the nose, the Blackberry Kush terpenes kick out a sweet and gassy profile. On the taste, much of the gas is sent to the background, as sweet berry flavors dominate the strain’s flavor profile.
It grows best indoors with a 7 – 8 week flowering period that produces a medium-to-low yield, which is probably why you don’t see Blackberry Kush flower too often on dispensary menus. Thus, if you want to try it, you may have to grow it at the crib.
How it feels to smoke Blackberry Kush (to me).
Cannabis tolerance plays a huge part in how powerful the effects of weed can be. The more you smoke, the more THC your body will need to get an intense high over time, which is why you see frequent smokers elevate to frequent dabbers over time.
As far as my tolerance goes, on a daily basis, I smoke three to four .75 gram joints and a dab or two, with a healthy dose of continual vape pen use throughout the day. This means that I can smoke pretty much any time of weed all day and be completely fine and productive. Except Blackberry Kush. It’s an absolute showstopper for my endocannabinoid system.
I smoked Blackberry Kush for the first time ever back in June 2018. It was after a trip down to Oregon to tour the facilities of what was then LTRMN, and has since become Korova Unrivaled. During the visit, I caught a few product samples on my hashtag weed journalist shit. One of those samples was a one gram Blackberry Kush Cabana preroll, which is a line of luxury pre-rolls from the aforementioned companies. Its high absolutely kicked my ass.
Have you ever smoked some weed that immediately you know is too much for you? Like, you’ve been facing blunts back-to-back for years, but for some reason, this high has hit your whole body with the Stone Cold Stunner? That was Blackberry Kush.
Within three hits of the joint, I felt my eyelids get so heavy that I immediately knew my day was over and whatever was on today’s to-do list had just been moved to tomorrow’s. It’s the type of high that makes you understand people who say they “don’t like indicas because they make me too sleepy.” To make sure it wasn’t just a fluke based on my body’s state and mood that day, I smoked another one of the BBK Cabana prerolls three days later and had the exact same experience.
Two years later, in November of 2020, I found myself in possession of a Blackberry Kush vape cartridge from AbsolutXtracts (ABX) during a road trip through California. I figured that the flower from years prior was just not a match for me, but maybe some oil would be a more relaxing, less overwhelming experience. I was wrong. A few puffs and I immediately got that wicked sleepy feeling. It taught me that while Blackberry Kush is simply not the strain for me, it may be the strain for consumers who do want some help passing out for the night.
Why I think Blackberry Kush is great for sleep
Sometimes you get so high that the only thing you can do to reverse it is go to sleep. That’s what Blackberry Kush does to me. And that’s exactly why I always recommend it to anyone who asks me about sleepy or indica strains — the for-now standard term that the industry uses to describe sedative effects.
Blackberry Kush is the perfect example of a couch-lock strain. In fact, sites like Pot Guide, CannabisNow, and Way of Leaf that have ranked sleepy cannabis strains have all named Blackberry Kush as one of the best.
So what makes Blackberry Kush so great for sleep? Perhaps its terpene profile. According to Cali Terpenes, who produces cannabis terpene profiles in liquid and spray formats, Blackberry Kush’s main terpenes are: caryophyllene, myrcene, limonene, pinene, linalool, menthol, nerolidol, and cineol.
Caryophyllene is expected to have relaxing effects, myrcene is expected to have calming, sedative qualities, and limonene is thought to be uplifting. Combine these perceived effects and it’s easy to see why Blackberry Kush can be such an overpowering, sedative strain for even the most seasoned stoners.
