5 Best Pot Podcasts

Pot Podcasts are nothing new, but with the increasing media dominance of Netflix and other on-demand video services, the medium is enjoying a resurgence of popularity. We started a podcast called High Holidaze. That process may sound pretty casual, but that’s the amazing thing about podcasts – anybody can make one with little more than an idea, a microphone and a wifi connection. Our audience is practically microscopic, and if you decide to start a podcast yours will be too, at least at the start. There’s something more intimate and captivating about the listening experience of a podcast that lends itself perfectly to deeper storytelling. 

We’re just one in a growing number of cannabis-related podcasts that have popped up on iTunes, Stitcher and other podcast platforms over the last few years. In the meantime, here are five of the best podcasts contributing to the growing marijuana media landscape. The Hash is a pot podcast for fans of Radiolab, 99 Percent Invisible, and the like: It hits on all the newsworthy topics but does so with a wonderful attention to sonic detail. Led by the Denver Post’s marijuana editor, Ricardo Baca, The Cannabist’s pot podcast walks the fine line between news and humor. His show on the Cannabis Radio podcast network delves deep into the minutiae of marijuana policy and features plenty of his famous rants. 

It’s been more than two years since Tommy Chong and his son Paris released an episode of their podcast, but it’s worth digging through their archives. The best part of this particular podcast isn’t Benson himself, but the celebrities who get stoned for the sake of his show.

Essay by Ccampbell9420

It seemed as though a slight haze accumulated over nation’s capital after President Obama released his newest presidential proclamation. Effective immediately it is Legal for anyone of any age to recreationally smoke marijuana. Of course this announcement was met with criticism, but the president has presented some additional statements to support his revolutionary decision. The president and his staff have added one clause to this proclamation, 55% of all marijuana will be imported from the drug cartels of Mexico in an effort to solve the overwhelming immigration problems this country faces. Many people see no correlation between marijuana and immigration but it is believed funding of the drug cartel will increase their power in southern countries. 

It is also a well know fact the president is concerned with the nation’s educational system, evident by his No Child Left Behind Initiative. The president has a concern that kindergarten class rooms are often much to rambunctious. To solve this, he plans to introduce marijuana to all public schools in a effort to mellow out these younger students. When the students have achieved a calm sate they will be more open to learning. Along with improvements to the countries educational system and immigration policies, the president anticipates the legal sale of marijuana will boost the economy. 

Rather then shady drug deals, your local drug dealer on the corner can now accept credit cards, personal checks, and EBT cards. This sale will be taxable by both the state and federal government in an effort to reduce the counties debt as we approach the fiscal cliff.

Blue Dream: Marijuana Strain Information, History & Facts

Everybody else in the United States seems to be getting in on the reefer madness, so we’ve decided to do the same by introducing a new franchise: Weed Strain of the Week. When I think of weed strains, the first thing that comes to mind is the 2008 stoner comedy classic Pineapple Express. In one of the earliest scenes of the movie, Saul explains to Dale how fire his newest strain of marijuana – Pineapple Express – is by only referring to previous strains that Dale had smoked. Now that legal marijuana and dispensaries exist, actual marijuana strains are more prevalent than ever, so we figured it’s time we start learning them all, one by one. Blue Dream, a sativa-dominant hybrid originating in California, has achieved legendary status among West Coast strains. 

Crossing a Blueberry indica with the sativa Haze, Blue Dream balances full-body relaxation with gentle cerebral invigoration. Novice and veteran consumers alike enjoy the level effects of Blue Dream, which ease you gently into a calm euphoria. Some Blue Dream phenotypes express a more indica-like look and feel, but the sativa-leaning variety remains most prevalent. With a sweet berry aroma redolent of its Blueberry parent, Blue Dream delivers swift symptom relief without heavy sedative effects. This makes Blue Dream a popular daytime medicine for patients treating pain, depression, nausea, and other ailments requiring a high THC strain. 

Blue Dream, also known as Blueberry Haze, is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain of Cannabis. Blue Dream is a cross between the Blueberry and Haze strains, and was created around 2003 in Santa Cruz, California.

Matt’s Guide to Tuesday Night TV: New and Returning Shows

Continuing a weeklong series of new-season analysis and previews, here’s my take on how I see the new Tuesday lineups playing out. Tuesday in a Nutshell: The no-brainer: CBS will continue to rule with its NCIS-NCIS: LA combo, and the new procedural-with-a-twist Unforgettable should fit right in, possibly putting a dent in ABC’s midseason surprise Body of Proof, which roughly targets the same audience for female-driven crime dramas. Fox should make significant inroads with the younger demos, especially if Glee gets back its groove in this transitional graduation season. The delightful New Girl deserves to break out, and may bolster the fortunes of my favorite comedy from last season, Raising Hope. On NBC, The Biggest Loser provides stability if not much excitement, while Parenthood hopes to hold on to its small but devoted following. 

Watching these guys, including Max Greenfield’s hilariously douchey wannabe ladies’ man, rally to her cause is undeniably sweet. The upside: She’s uncannily perceptive at crime scenes, and we often see her step outside her body to replay events from her mind’s eye. A Returning Favorite: Of tonight’s many season openers, only Fox’s Raising Hope was available for preview, and it’s a treat for anyone who loves a good call-back to classic sitcoms. The baby is older this season, but no less adorable. NCIS: LA picks up season three with the team seeking a wounded Hetty in Romania. 

A new school year begins on Glee, while Sue kicks off her congressional campaign. Comedy Central’s Tosh.0 returns with Daniel doing his thing on the Arizona State University campus.
