Get High To This: 5 Great Albums By Unknown Bands

14-Weed-Loving-Music-Acts

For me, there is nothing better after a long day than setting up my stereo, warming up my vape and getting heavily medicated with some of my favorite bands. I’ve got to say I spend most of my time staring blankly at a wall or reading the latest issue of High Times, medicated out of my mind while my speakers pump out high decibels of psyched out, trippy jams that my neighbors are surely tired of hearing at this point. So I’ve compiled a short list of some bands that you’ve probably never heard of that will leave a thin layer of resin over your speakers. Get ready to plug in your headphones and drop out of life, here’s a list of 5 great albums by unknown bands to medicate to.

Whirr – Pipe Dreams

Whirr is a San Francisco based “shoegaze” band that specializes in heavy effects, ethereal vocal melodies and awesomeness. Their debut album is packed front to back with amazing songs that are drenched in reverb and feature amazing duets between vocalists Nick Basset and Alexandra Morte. They have an alternative sound to them and if I had to compare it to anything, I would say they sound like a punkier/heavier Best Coast. I especially love throwing this album on if I have things to do, it makes for great background music while you read, clean or feel like makin whoopee (not that I would know anything about that). Give it a listen and check it out here!

Favorite Track: Wait


Nothing – Guilty of Everything

I was introduced to Nothing shortly after finding out about Whirr and the split e.p. they recorded together. After listening to the Nothing side of the split I decided to check out some of Nothing’s other work, immediately I fell in love with Guilty of Everything. The stellar guitar tones meshed with the sheer force of the bass guitar create a massive wall of sonic power that leaves you almost incapacitated at times (especially after taking a couple drags of wax from my new Galaxy vape). As an audiophile I cannot get over how well this album sounds as well as how much fun it is to listen to sober or medicated.

Favorite Track: Hymn to the Pillory


Toundra – III

I just recently found Toundra (pronounced Tundra) a few weeks ago and I have been bumping them non-stop since. Toundra is a Spanish “Post Rock” band with definite influences from bands like Tool and Mastodon. III is a six song album full of incredibly dynamic songs that go from heavy, rock driven riffs to slow and melodic pieces featuring violins, harps and ouds. Toundra is all instrumental, no vocals or lyrics which quite frankly, these guys don’t need any of that, their music stands well all on its own. I highly recommend giving these guys a listen, especially if you like instrumental music. Check them out on bandcamp!

Favorite Track: Lilim


Bardo Pond – Dilate

Bardo in sandskrit loosely refers to “the state of existence intermediate between two lives on earth”, which fits this band perfectly. Bardo Pond exists in between a state of music and psychedelic noise that cannot properly be defined. Dilate is an album that on its own, without any substance at all will send you on an incredible trip to an entirely different plane of the universe. Usually when I listen to Dilate I tend to throw on the headphones, take a few puffs of the vaporizer and just let my mind wander until the album is finished. Many classify the band’s music as “space rock”, which is a pretty accurate description of their sound. Droning guitars, thick feedback and heavy reverb, Dilate is a must listen to for the psychedelic enthusiast.


Sleep Party People – We Were Drifting On A Sad Song

To wrap this up I figured I would end with the Danish “dreamgaze” band Sleep Party People. The brain child of Brian Batz, SPP delivers tunes that blend acoustic and synthesized instruments a like. We Were Drifting On A Sad Song delivers amazing songs & instruments with incredible tone along with vocal melodies that are both haunting and entrancing. “Drifting” has a nice balance of slow, soothing songs and upbeat jams that have a slight synth pop tinge to them. If you get a chance, I would definitely give these guys a listen.

Favorite Track: A Dark God Heart

U.S. Government Acknowledges Cancer-Killing Properties In Marijuana

People have been arguing about it for decades and as recently as July of this year the National Institute on Drug Abuse has stated on their website that in recent tests, marijuana has shown to have helped kill certain cancer cells. The debate on whether or not medicinal marijuana is beneficial to those suffering from cancer, aids & glaucoma has been going on since before California first passed prop 215 back in 1996 and each year after that medical marijuana activists have been pushing to get legitimate government funded tests to prove the medicinal properties of cannabis.

The tests funded by the National Health Institute have discovered that the extracts from the marijuana plant slowed the growth of cancer cells found in brain tumors and when these cannabis extracts were used in conjunction with radiation, the “cancer-killing” effects were increased. Although NIDA still states on their website states that cannabinoids have led to “serious health effects when abused” further in-depth study will eventually uncover the great benefits so many medical marijuana patients have been experiencing such as this man from the UK who in 2012 claimed that cannabis oil helped cure his liver cancer.

The National Cancer Institute now has on their website a list of facts on marijuana and how it can be beneficial for treating cancer as well as how it can help lessen the side-effects chemotherapy has on the body. They list on their website that cannabis can help aid the relief of pain, nausea and loss of appetite which are just a few of the many side-effects associated with CTX.

Getting a government agency to acknowledge the healing benefits and fund medical research of cannabis is not only a great victory for medical marijuana activists but is also a huge step towards nationwide legalization as well as FDA approved medical marijuana treatments. One could argue that the downfalls of the government getting involved in medical marijuana could supersede the benefits, but that’s a whole other discussion.

The Palm Vaporizer Video Review

We found this great review of the Palm 2.0 Vaporizer and wanted to share it with you guys. They did a really nice job of explaining the cool features of the Palm, showing the proper way to use it, and give some helpful tips and tricks. Check it out below:

WHY WE LOVE THE PALM

There’s a lot to love about the Palm 2.0. If you’re all about being discreet, it doesn’t get more “on-the-low” than the Palm. This little guy fits in the palm of your hand, which means you can bring it and hit it anywhere without drawing any unwanted attention. Aside from being super portable, it’s also one of the easiest units to use of any portable vaporizer. There’s no temperature to adjust, no buttons to press and no heat-up time! Just pack your herbs into the chamber and insert the battery to activate the heating element.

EASY TO USE

If you’ve been thinking about purchasing a vaporizer, but have been apprehensive and don’t want to spend a fortune, the Palm 2.0 is a great choice. It’s great for beginners, because there is a very small learning curve. Some people are turned off by the technological aspect of vaporizers and view them as just another “gadget.” However, the Palm keeps it very simple and doesn’t use any sort of crazy, confusing technology. And considering it’s available

SUPER DISCREET

Even though its simplistic nature is appealing to beginners, the Palm is also a great option for seasoned vaporizer veterans who just want a small, discreet vape to roll around town with. It’s so small, you can literally bring it anywhere. Once you have the Palm in your hand, you really get a feel for its overall durability. It has more weight to it than you might think and doesn’t feel flimsy or cheap whatsoever.

RECHARGEABLE BATTERY

Our favorite feature of the Palm 2.0 is the rechargeable/replaceable lithium-ion battery. To activate the heating chamber, all you have to do is insert the end of the battery into the unit. There’s no temperature to set and no waiting around for the vape to heat up. When you’re done with your session, just pop the batteries back on the charger so they’re ready to go for next time. The batteries lifespan isn’t phenomenal, so you’ll want to make sure you keep them charged so you’re not all dressed up with no place to go.

So whether you’re just getting into vaporizing, or have been doing it for years and just want something more discreet, you should seriously consider the Palm.

The Cannabist Explains And Explores the Stigma Behind Concentrates

Concentrates are the ‘Scotch Whisky’ of cannabis materials. This is how experts have described wax marijuana concentrates. While other people have described “dabbing” as something that is the crack cocaine of marijuana, this is a completely bogus and absurd statement. Before the introduction of vaporizers, many people would use different methods that resembled a lot of what smoking crack looks like.

Of course, these stigmas are still around even today with the use of vaporizers. Many of the issues today have to do with the way that these concentrates are produced and the regulations behind them. These concentrates have to be done in a way that it meets high standards and not everyone has the tools or the machines to invest thousands of dollars to produce concentrates that are high quality.

The Cannabist panel explains everything you need to know about concentrates rather well in this segment:

Canada Has Just Legalized Medical Marijuana Oils and Edibles

Yeah, Canada! Our neighbor to the north. Those Canadians, they know what they’re doing. Perhaps Canada as a nation has surpassed the United States in terms of progressiveness and more advanced social policies. This is a good example: Canada’s supreme court has just decided to rule in favor of cannabis oil and edibles, nationwide!!! Yes, here in the States, our federal government doesn’t want to come near a legislation of this sort.

Canada now joins the illustrious group of countries who have to an extent decriminalized or legalized the use of marijuana for either medical or recreational purposes. This list includes the likes of Jamaica, Uruguay, the Netherlands, Chile and Colombia. States within the United States who have legalized marijuana to some degree include Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska and medicinal in 25 other states. Half of the states in the US have made cannabis legal to some extent. Hopefully, it’ll be legal soon in all 50 states.

According to Leafly:

So what does this mean for Canadian medical marijuana patients? This means that, as an authorized patient, you have the right to possess cannabis in any form that suits your needs and you needn’t worry about trafficking or possession charges. While this is fantastic news for Canadian patients, Canadian Health Minister Rona Ambrose is quoted as being “outraged” by the Supreme Court’s decision. She also said she would fight against the “normalization” of cannabis, which is disappointing, to say the least.

A Quick, Easy Edible Marijuana Recipe

The cannabis butter recipe is one of the easiest recipes to follow and make. To be quiet honest, we all want to make life easier on ourselves. That’s why the internet is a great place to search for easy edible marijuana recipes. Some of these recipes include brownies, cannabis butter, and other clever weed-infused dishes.

Recently, even coffee has been known to be infused with weed. It’s been dubbed the Vodka Redbull of the weed world as it gives you a high combined with a nice energy boost that caffeine gives you. We went online and looked at some of the best and easiest weed edible recipes to follow.

Some of the recipes are not only appealing because they’re easy to put together, but also because they’re tasty and clever. There are tons of recipes and tons of different ways to make the same thing. What you want to look out for is whether or not the ingredients are easy to attain and if you already have them in your kitchen.

Cannabis butter is great. Check it out:

Yeah, cookies!

Or how about some chocolate fudge?

What To Do With Weed That’s Been Vaporized

It’s one of those questions that many people ask themselves. Considering that most marijuana aficionados have throughout history have smoked and used up most of the THC in marijuana, this is a brand new scenario to consider for many vapers.

One of the easiest ways to make good use of vaporized marijuana is using it for edibles. That’s right. Marijuana that is brown and/or golden brown in color can be used towards edibles as it retains around 25% of its original THC content. This doesn’t seem like a lot, but 25% goes a long way.

When you’re re-using  your weed, you’re basically getting more bang for your buck. Not to mention the fact that by vaporizing it in the first place you’re already getting more out of your weed than you would with combustion.

Other ways to make use of your vaporized weed is to use to make hash oils. Although, we don’t recommend doing this unless you’re an expert at knowing exactly what ingredients to use and how to mix them using the right portions.

Again, if you’re going to try to make hash oil out of your golden brown weed ,we recommend going online and doing some research. Or talk to someone you know who has experience with oils. Otherwise, there are plenty of recipes for edible marijuana out there on the internet.

New Cloud Penz Chloris Vaporizer

As vaporizers continue to become more and more popular, the Palm is seeing new competition in the portable herbal market. There seems to be no shortage of discreet vaporizers popping up from manufacturers all across the country. While we love the Palm, there’s also some new kids on the block that we’ve had a chance to test out that we really like – one of those new units being the Chloris from Cloud Penz. It’s always great to have another tool in your arsenal, and the Chrlois may be the perfect companion to your Palm. Let’s take a look at what sets this vaporizer apart and makes it a must have.

Cloud Penz, who is largely known for their ellipse-style pen vaporizers, has recently taken a big step and produced its first true portable herbal vaporizer, the Chloris.

Featuring a LCD digital temperature control system which gives you the option to vape at any temperature between 350°- 430°F, there are few other units that offer the type of vapor control that this one does. Not only does the LCD display tell you the exact temperature the Chloris is running at, it also gives you a battery read out, so you’ll know precisely when it’s time to charge. As one of the smallest, most discreet portables on the market, Cloud Pen seems to have hit a home-run with this unit.

Capture

I was given the chance to test out this vape earlier this week, and to be honest, I have very little negative to say about it. First, it heats up super-fast, reaching 390°F in just over 30 seconds. Second, it’s so simple to use. This is a great vaporizer for beginners, as it’s probably one of the most user-friendly units I’ve ever had the pleasure of using. Just load up your herbs, set your temperature, and start vaping – that’s it!

Because it’ small, the Chloris does getting pretty warm, so I highly recommend using the included mouth guards (three come with the unit). Other than that, I don’t really have anything bad to say about this vaporizer. This is a perfect vape for on-the-go use that will easily fit in your pocket, that also gives you advanced temperature control options.

It’s priced pretty competitively ($99.99) with other units in its class, such as the G-Pro, DigiToke, and Hylo Vaporizers. If you’re thinking about investing in a new portable herbal vaporizer, you can’t go wrong with the Chloris from Cloud Pen.
