CANNABIS 101

Looking for some basic help to get you started on your new cannabis journey? Well, look no more! We’ve compiled a crash course on what you need to go from dazed and confused to Cheech and Chong in no time.

CANNABIS

Weed, pot, marijuana, Mary Jane…cannabis is known by many names. But, what is cannabis? Cannabis is a plant that produces flower, or bud, that contains the psychoactive cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in addition to 483 other compounds like CBD, CBG, & CBN.

Sativa - The Head High

A subspecies of cannabis, Cannabis Sativa is a tall and slender plant with long, thin leaves.

When smoked, Cannabis Sativa tends to produce a head high that promotes alertness, creativity, energy, and makes you feel uplifted and euphoric.

Sativa strains are best for daytime use.

Indica - The Body High

Another subspecies of cannabis, Cannabis Indica is a short, bushy plant with short, wide leaves.

When smoked, Cannabis Indica tends to produce a body high that promotes relaxation, rest, munchies, and soothes muscles.

Indica strains are best for nighttime use.

Cannabidiol - CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD), like THC, is one of the many cannabinoids found in cannabis. Unlike THC however, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it won’t get you high. CBD products are great for those looking to benefit from the wonders of cannabis without experiencing the intoxicating effects.

RSO (Rick Simpson Oil)

Rick Simpson Oil RSOWhat is RSO? RSO, short for Rick Simpson Oil, is a full plant extract, using all parts of the plant. RSO is made by soaking plant matter in alcohol. Afterward, the plant matter is filtered out. The resulting extract retains a tar-like appearance once the solvents have evaporated. RSO is usually consumed orally.

BHO (Butane Hash Oil)

Cannabis Concentrate BHO ShatterWhat is BHO? BHO, short for Butane Hash Oil, is made by placing plant matter in a closed column, washing butane over it, and then recovering the solvent. The solvent pulls THC, CBD, and the terpenes. This is then poured out into a thin sheet and placed in a vacuum drying oven that removes any remaining solvents.

CO2 Oil

CO2 Cannabis OilWhat is CO2 oil? CO2 oil comes from a supercritical fluid extraction that removes THC and terpenes from raw cannabis. This solvent and pressure are used to extract cannabinoids and terpenes. Using this solvent, the resulting extract is considered by many to be “cleaner” than butane or propane-derived extracts. This method results in a viscous, oily liquid. Moreover, this oil is frequently found in vaporizer pens and cartridges.

Solvent Free

Gooey cannabis extractWhat does solvent-free mean? Solvent-free means that solvents were used but are fully purged out of the concentrate, like with distillate.

Carb Cap

dab rig carb cab cannabisWhat is a carb cap? A carb cap is a piece of glass, quartz, ceramic or titanium that is used to trap the air and activate non-vaporized oil when covered over the nail of a dab rig; Carb caps are commonly used for quartz bangers and titanium and ceramic domeless nails.

TERPENES

 What is a terpene? Terpenes, sometimes referred to as “terps”, are aromatic compounds found in plants including cannabis. While only a handful make up a majority of most cannabis terpene profiles, there are over 100 different terpenes found in cannabis plants. Each cannabis strain has a unique terpene profile. As a result, different cannabis strains have different aroma/flavor profiles as well as different unique effects. That’s right, terpenes affect how you get high.

How do terpenes affect your high? Well, terpenes and other cannabinoids help THC absorb into the body more efficiently and promote a longer lasting high. Smoking pure THC with no other cannabinoids  or terpenes present often leads to a short and shallow high. In addition to this, each terpene has it’s own unique effects on the body. To learn more in depth about what each terpene does, keep reading below.

Self-Care Cannabis Products for Your 2023 Routine

2023 has finally opened up its doors and the new year is upon us. This year, we want to focus on your wellness, whatever that means to you. Whether you’re looking to manage your stress or just show yourself a little self-care, cannabis may be just what you need. No, we don’t mean smoking it. That’s right, in this article we are going to highlight some of the cannabis products that will give you all of the wonderful benefits of THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids without having to smoke weed.

Ceres Gardens CBD rub and CBD tincture with THC

Tinctures

Cannabis tinctures allow you to feel the benefits of cannabis by just placing a few drops under your tongue. Despite being taken orally like an edible, the effects of tinctures tend to have a much quicker onset of around 15-30 minutes. This is because when you let the tincture sit under your tongue for at least 30 seconds, the cannabinoids rapidly absorb into your bloodstream through the tissue in your mouth.

Generic Cannabis Tincture

Tinctures are a great option for those who want something that takes effect rather quickly and requires very little ingested cannabis. In addition, tinctures come in convenient dropper bottles which allow you to measure out the precise amount you desire. Tinctures are also very discreet and easy to travel with, making them a great option for those who want their cannabis readily available even when they aren’t home.

Christmas Movie and Weed Strain Pairings 

The air is cold and crisp, the ground is blanketed in fresh white snow, and the streets of Spokane are lined with bright festive lights. That can only mean one thing — Christmas is just around the corner! Here at Cinder Cannabis Dispensary, we believe there’s no better way to celebrate than snuggling up with a warm cup of cocoa and a fresh bowl of greens as you bingeall  the Christmas classics. That’s why it’s become a tradition for us to give you the low down on the best Christmas movie and weed strain pairings.

 

Movie | The Grinch

Starting off our list is a Christmas classic, the Grinch. In every iteration of the Grinch, the story follows a mean, green hermit living on the outskirts of Whoville with his little dog Max. The Grinch is known to the people of Whoville as a curmudgeon and an outcast who hates Christmas, which is an accurate assessment. In his hilltop cavern, the Grinch works up a scheme to ruin Christmas for the Who’s for his own personal amusement and gain. Along the way, the Grinch meets young Cindy Lou-Who, who is able to reinstall his Christmas joy.

Strain | Mean Misty

Mean Misty Cannabis Strain From Driftboat

For the meanest man in Whoville there’s no strain more fitting than Mean Misty. Mean Misty is a fruity hybrid with both mental and physical effects. This strain is a cross of Secret Recipe and Blue Dream, resulting in a strong berry aroma with earthy undertones. Smoking Mean Misty gives a rush to the head with mild relaxation throughout your body. 

Available at Cinder!


Movie | The Nightmare Before Christmas

Some may argue the next film is exclusively a Halloween movie, but I beg to differ. The Nightmare Before Christmas follows Jack Skellington, the King of Halloween Town. One fateful night alone in the woods, Jack stumbles upon a mysterious tree with a Christmas-shaped door that sucks him into the world of Christmas Town. Entranced by the whimsy of Christmas town, Jack attempts to spread jolly and Christmas joy across Halloween Town. The result is not the wonderful collision of cultures Jack envisioned, and chaos ensues shortly after. 

Strain | Bone Collector

Bone Collector Cannabis Strain from Phat Panda

Paying homage to our skeletal protagonist, we’ve chosen bone collector as the strain pairing for this Christmas movie. Bone Collector, a Phat Panda exclusive, is an indica-hybrid that crosses M.A.C with Cow God. This relaxing strain is perfect for snuggling in with a warm cup of cocoa as you watch this whimsical Tim Burton classic.

Available at Cinder!

Movie | Home Alone 2: Lost In New York

This movie goes out to the 80’s and 90’s kids yearning for a little taste of nostalgia this holiday season. Set in New York City one year after main character Kevin McCallister was left home alone to defeat a pair of rag-tag burglars, Kevin once again finds himself home alone with the same burglars not far behind him. 

Strain | Big Apple

Big Apple Jelly Badder Cannabis Concentrate Dab from Painted Rooster

 Named For the city Kevin finds himself stranded in, Big Apple is the best strain to pair with this Christmas movie. Big Apple is an indica-dominant hybrid strain created by crossing the infamous Apple Fritter with Sherbet. The result is an ultimately delicious apple strain. Big Apple is simultaneously super sweet and sour, tasting like citrus with nutty notes and a ripe apple flavor. The aroma is just as flavorful with an extra punch of rich berries. When you smoke this strain, you’ll be lifted into a focused euphoria and slowly faded into a heavy couch lock. As a result, this is perfect for smoking before you watch Home Alone 2.

Available at Cinder!

Movie | The Polar Express

This entry is one that younger readers like myself probably grew up with, The Polar Express. This animated Christmas movie follows a young boy who begins  to lose his faith in the existence of Santa Claus. Late one Christmas Eve, the young boy awakes to  the sound and sight of a passenger train mysteriously stopping outside of his house. Outside he is greeted by the train’s conductor, who tells him they are heading to the North Pole. Surprised, the boy is hesitant to board the train, but decides to climb aboard, where he meets several other children on their way to the North Pole. The story follows the  children’s journey to meet Santa Claus while tackling themes of friendship, bravery, and the magic of Christmas.

Strain | The Pineapple Express

 

 We of course have to pair The Polar Express with the infamous Pineapple Express. This sativa dominant hybrid is the perfect movie pairing, it’s effects will keep you buzzy and alert, so you don’t miss out on any Christmas magic. Pineapple Express produces long-lasting, energetic effects you can feel right away. This strain is best enjoyed in the earlier half of the day with it’s  delicious flavors of bright citrus, pineapple, and earthy pine on the exhale.

Available at Cinder!

Movie | Tokyo Godfathers

For this entry, I’ve selected a personal favorite Christmas movie that many of you may not have heard of before, Tokyo Godfathers. This Japanese animated movie follows the story of a homeless teenage runaway named Miyuki, a motherly retired drag queen named Hana, and a middle-aged alcoholic named Gin. Their journey begins when the three hear the cries of a newborn late one night in the streets of Japan. They discover that someone has abandoned this baby in a trash bin.

Upon their discovery, the trio vows to return the displaced newborn to their parents. Along the way, we learn the tragic backstories of our three protagonists and how they ended up in the streets. This tragic yet uplifting animated movie is a great watch, if you’re looking for something deep and introspective while still managing to be funny and whimsical.

Strain | Tokyo Snow

Tokyo Snow Cannabis Strain from Sky High Gardens

Image Source

We recommend pairing this Japanese animated Christmas movie with the strain Tokyo Snow from Sky High Gardens. Tokyo Snow is a heady sativa-hybrid that provides a beach of wintery forest breeze. With cooling menthol on the exhale, this strain provides cool wintery vibes with spectacular flavor. You’ll taste delicate floral notes with a hint of pine and eucalyptus that’ll have you feeling like you just smoked a bowl of Christmas. This strain is great for pairing with Tokyo Godfathers, not only for its name but for its exceptionally crisp flavor and upbeat effects. Smoking this as you take in  scenes of snow-blanketed Tokyo will transport you  right into the movie. 

Movie | The Santa Claus

Lastly, this Christmas classic follows the story of toy salesman Scott Calvin as he prepares to spend Christmas Eve with his son Charlie. Scott’s ex-wife Laura and her husband believe that Charlie is at a point in his life where he needs to be told the harsh reality that Santa isn’t real. Despite not believing in Santa himself, Scott wants young Charlie to maintain his belief in Santa Claus. Following a night of unfortunate events, Scott awakens to a noise on the roof.

When going out to investigate, Scott startles a man in a Santa suit who then slips and falls off the roof. Mysteriously, the body of the man vanishes, leaving only his suit and a business card behind. The business card reads “If something should happen to me, put on my suit. The reindeer will know what to do.” It’s then that it becomes clear, Scott killed Santa Claus. At the request of his son, Scott puts on the suit and spends the rest of the night delivering gifts with Charlie before the reindeer take them both to the North Pole. It’s here that Scott learns he has assumed the role of Santa Claus and he must now learn all the duties associated  with being the boss of Christmas.

What you will need

Hot Sugar Dark or Milk Chocolate Bites

Milk or Milk Alternative

Candy Cane

Whipped Cream

Mug

Instructions

For this Christmas recipe, first bring a small pot of milk or milk alternative to a boil on the stove. While the milk is boiling, take your candy cane a place it into a ziplock bag. Find a mallet, hammer, or whatever else will help you crush the candy cane into small bits. Put the baggie of crushed candy cane bits to the side. Once the milk is boiling, turn the heat off.

Now, dust off your favorite Christmas mug and fill it most of the way with hot milk. Make sure to leave a little bit of room for more ingredients. Before the milk cools off, pop a Hot Sugar Chocolate Bite (or two if that’s how you roll) into the mug of hot milk and stir. Keep stirring until the chocolate is fully melted and combined. Once the chocolate and milk become one, top your drink with whip cream and sprinkle some crushed candy cane bits over the top.

What you will need

6 Large Egg Yolks

1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar

1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream

2 Cups Milk or Milk Alternative

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Pinch of Salt

Ground Cinnamon

Vanilla Hot Sugar 10pk

Instructions

For this Christmas recipe, whisk the egg yolks and sugar together in a medium bowl until light and creamy. Now, take a saucepan and place it over medium heat. In the saucepan, combine cream, milk, nutmeg, and salt. Stir often until the mixture reaches a bare simmer. Next, add a big spoonful of hot milk to the egg mixture and whisk vigorously. Continue adding hot milk to the egg mixture one spoonful at a time to temper the eggs.

Once most of the hot milk has been added to the eggs, pour the mixture back into the saucepan on the stove. Whisk constantly for a few minutes, until the mixture is just slightly thickened. Keep in mind that it will thicken more as it cools. Remove the pan from heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour the eggnog through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher or other container. Finally, add your desired amount of Vanilla Hot Sugar packets. Remember, each packet is 10mg. Now, cover the egg nog with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled. This egg nog will thicken as it cools. If you want it thinner, add it into a blender with 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk and blend until smooth.

Infused Gingerbread

Gingerbread as Detailed in This Christmas Recipe

Image Source

What you will need

1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter (Soft)

1 Large Egg

1 Cup Molasses (not blackstrap)

2 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flower

1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

1/2 Cup White Sugar w/ Vanilla Hot Sugar*

1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger

1 Teaspoon Ground Cloves

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1 Cup Water

Instructions

For this Christmas recipe, before you start anything, let’s get the sugar ready. The sugar is how we are going to infuse this particular recipe. So, decide how many of your 10 Vanilla Hot Sugar packets you will be using. Each packet is 10mg, so if you want a 100mg batch of gingerbread, use all 10 packets. Now that you’ve decided how many Hot Sugar Packets you will be using, pour them into a measuring cup. Fill the remainder of the measuring cup with granulated white sugar up to the 1/2 cup line.

Now, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. To the side, grease and flour a 9-inch square baking pan. In a large bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer until creamy. Add the sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Then, mix in egg and molasses until smooth. Next, sift flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt into a large bowl. Gradually add these dry ingredients to the molasses mixture, stirring as you go to ensure the mixture is smooth and even. Lastly, mix in water until smooth. Once your mixture is smooth and evenly combined, pour the batter into the pan you greased earlier.

Bake the bread for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, pull the bread out of the oven and stick a toothpick in the center. If you pull out a clean toothpick, your gingerbread is done. If you pull out a toothpick with batter on it, bake for another 10 minutes. Allow your gingerbread to cool in the pan before serving.

Infused Brown Sugar Bourbon Pineapple Ham Glaze

What you will need

1/2 Cup Pineapple Preserves

1 Tablespoon Butter

2 Teaspoons Spicy Brown Mustard

1/4 Teaspoon Allspice

1g Distillate Syringe/Tanker

Instructions

For this Christmas recipe, put your one tablespoon of butter into a small pot and place over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, turn off the heat and add in your desired amount of distillate. Again, remember that each increment on your syringe will be around 1 serving. If your syringe does not have increment markers, just try to use pea-sized increments of distillate. Stir until combined. Once the butter and distillate are combined add in your brown sugar, bourbon, preserves, mustard, allspice, and pineapple juice. Stir until combined. If ingredients are not combining easily, return the pot to low heat and stir.

Danksgiving | Cannabis-Infused Thanksgiving Dinner

Get all your favorite pot-heads together this November for your very own Danksgiving feast. In this article, we’ll be sharing some infused recipes to help take your Thankgiving dinner up a notch. Plus, you can use our Cannabis Infused Butter recipe to infuse any other Thanksgiving recipes you might have that call for butter!

Cannabis Infused Butter

Ingredients:

  • 1g Distillate/RSO Tanker
  • 1 Cup of Cannabis Butter

Cannabis Infused Butter

Image Source

Instructions

Before making your cannabis infused butter, decide how much THC you want in your mixture. Keep in mind that distillate tends to clock-in at 90% potency or higher, so a 1g syringe will usually sit around 900mg of THC. So, we don’t really recommend using an entire syringe for one serving. Once you’ve figured out how much distillate you want to use, melt your one cup of butter in a saucepan on low heat. Once the butter is melted, add in your desired dosage of distillate or RSO. Stir continuously until the butter and distillate/oil are combined well. Remove from heat. 

Mashed Pot-atotes

Ingredients:

  • Head of Garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 3 Pounds of Yukon Gold Potatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons of Cannabis Infused Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Chives/Green Onion
  • Salt & Pepper 

Cannabis Infused Mashed Potatoes

Instructions

Prepare Garlic:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Afterwards, peel as much of the skin off of the garlic by hand as you can. Once you’ve peeled the head of garlic, place it in onto a baking tray. Drizzle some olive oil over the garlic and then cover it with aluminum foil. Now, slide the baking tray into the oven and bake for about 25 minutes or until the cloves of garlic can be smushed when pressed. Once the garlic is soft, remove it from the oven and set it aside.

Prepare Potatoes:

Peel the potatoes and cut them into medium chunks. Then, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Once the water has reached a boil, add the potatoes to the pot. Boil the potatoes for 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. To check the potatoes, stick a fork in one of the potato chunks to see if they are soft. Once the potatoes are soft, turn off the stove and drain the potatoes in a colander. Transfer the potatoes into a large bowl and grab the head of garlic you prepped and set aside earlier.

Now, squeeze the garlic out of the garlic head into the bowl of potatoes. Also add the cannabis infused butter, mayonnaise, sour cream, and chives/green onions. Using an electric mixer or potato masher, mash the potatoes until all of the ingredients are combined and the consistency of the potatoes is to your liking. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Wavy Gravy

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup Cannabis Butter
  • Turkey or Veggie Stock
  • 2 Onions (Thinly Sliced)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Rosemary
  • 1/3 Cup Flour
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions

In a large saucepan, melt your cannabis butter over low heat. Once the butter is melted, add your thinly sliced onions and rosemary into the saucepan. Allow the onions and rosemary to simmer in the butter on low heat for about 10 minutes. This will allow the butter to absorb their flavor. Strain the rosemary an onions out of the butter and return the butter to the saucepan. Still over low heat, add in flour and whisk for about a minute. Then, slowly begin pouring in your stock of choice while stirring until the gravy is at your preferred consistency. Once your mixture is at your preferred gravy consistency, turn off your stove’s heat and add salt and pepper to taste.

Amnesia Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon Cannabis-Infused Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 Cup Cool-Whip
  • 1 Cup of Each of the Following
  • Coconut Shavings
  • Mandarin Orange Slices
  • Pineapple Chunks
  • Miniature Marshmallows

Instructions

Combine every ingredient but the cannabis oil into a medium-sized bowl. Carefully fold all of the ingredients together with a spoon or spatula until everything is evenly mixed and coated in sour cream and whip. Once the fruit, sour cream, and whip is evenly combined, pour the cannabis oil in and mix until the oil is as evenly distributed as possible. Seal the mixing bowl with saran wrap and refrigerate for 3-5 hours. Serve chilled.

High Pumpkin Pie

Ingredients:

  • 8oz Cream Cheese (Softened)
  • 2 Cups Canned Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Eggs Slightly Beaten
  • 1 Cup Half & Half
  • 1/3 Cup Cannabis Infused Butter
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 9-Inch Unbaked Pastry Shell
  • 1 Cup Whipped Cream

Cannabis Infused Pumpkin Pie

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is pre-heating, get the softened cream cheese into a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric kitchen mixer. While still beating, add in the pumpkin and beat until combined. Once the cream cheese and pumpkin pie is evenly combined, add the sugar, salt, eggs, half & half, and cannabis butter into the bowl. Beat everything together with an electric mixture until well-combined. While still beating, pour in the vanilla extract, cinnamon, and ginger until everything is combined.

Now that you have the complete filling, pour it into the pie crust. Place the filled pie into the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the middle is set. To check the middle, stick a toothpick in the middle of the pie. Pull out the tooth pick and check to see if any filling stuck to it. If the toothpick is clean, the pie is ready. Let the pie cool at room temperature. Once the pie is cooled, top with whipped cream.

Schweed Potato Casserole

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Once your oven has reached 400 degrees, put all of your sweet potatoes in a baking dish and bake for about 1 hour or until tender. After pulling your dish of sweet potatoes out of the oven, allow the potatoes to cool. In the meantime, turn your oven down to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Once cooled to room temperature, peel and mash the sweet potatoes. Next, beat together the mashed sweet potatoes, sugar, milk, softened cannabis butter, eggs, vanilla extract, and salt at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine cornflakes, chopped pecans, brown sugar, and melted cannabis butter. Once combined, sprinkle the mixture over the top of the sweet potato casserole. Place the casserole back in the oven and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. Afterward, pull the casserole from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Once slightly cooled, sprinkle marshmallows over the top of the casserole. Then, return the casserole to the oven to bake for a final 10 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

GH Lab’s Back Story

X-Ray of Vance Duggers broken vertebrae

Image Source

GH Labs originated from the needs of everyday people. Owner and founder, Vance Dugger, a third-generation New Mexico business owner, started as a consumer and then became an industry innovator. In 2012, Mr.Dugger suffered a broken neck. He underwent surgery in California to have his C3 through C6 vertebrae repaired.

Rick Simpson Oil in Syringes Sitting on Top of a Cannabis Leaf

After a successful surgery, he quickly discovered that he was allergic to opiates. Through the help of friends in California, he began his recovery and was given some Rick Simpson Oil. His recovery was nothing short of miraculous. Not only did he recover and heal, but he did so without having to take opiates to relieve his pain. He recovered completely through the use of organic cannabis products. Obviously, this revelation made him a believer in the healing qualities of cannabis. As a third-generation New Mexican and New Mexico business owner, Mr.Dugger knew it was imperative to have fellow New Mexicans come alongside him to assist in the creation of what is now GH Labs. So began GH Labs, a patient-focused product producer that utilizes the newest technologies and best industry standards to create a premium product for the people of New Mexico.

With GH Labs, the process began with the best construction practices. To begin with, they built their grow rooms with washable PVC walls that are mold and mildew-resistant. Once a grow is done, there is very little downtime to turn over for the next crop. In just over a year, they have turned an abandoned building into a 17,000-square-foot facility on the cutting edge of production and manufacturing technology.

GH Labs is proud to be environmentally friendly. Specifically, they are equipped with extremely energy-efficient cooling units and automated watering systems. As a result, they boast an incredibly low 2% water waste. Organic grow plans, large capacity extraction capabilities, and explosion-proof extraction booths are just some of the advanced technologies they employ at GH Labs. In addition, they sought out the direction of representatives from the Bernalillo County Fire Department and the New Mexico Department of Health. This was to ensure that all recommendations were heard and all guidelines were met. Overall, this is to ensure the safety of employees and the knowledge that the products produced would be of the highest quality and that no corners would be cut.

Haunted Locations in Spokane, Washington

Halloween is creeping closer and closer and what better way to celebrate than with some good old-fashioned hauntings? You may not know this, but there are several notoriously haunted locations all around Spokane. So, grab your EMF detector and channel your inner Zak Baggins because it’s time to go ghost hunting!

The Thousand Steps at Greenwood Cemetery

Starting the list with one of the most notably haunted locations in Spokane is the Thousand Steps staircase at Greenwood Cemetery. If you stroll down along the graveyard path you’ll find this dilapidated staircase tucked away behind the overgrowth and shrubbery. Just looking up at the ramshackle steps will send shivers down your spine. We strongly caution you against going up the steps, not only because the steps themselves are rather uneven and broken, but because spirits are said to prevent guests from reaching the top. (It’s also trespassing, the scariest of all.)

The Campbell House

The Campbell House was built in 1898 by renowned Spokane architect Kirtland K. Cutter for the wealthy Campbell family. Amasa B. Campbell, the father of the Campbell family, became wealthy through his endeavors in the gem mining industry with his partner John A. Finch. The other residents of the Campbell house were his wife Grace and daughter Helen along with their coachman, cook, two maids, and gardener. These servants had their own dining room, as well as living quarters on the third floor or in the carriage house.

Following the death of Grace Campbell, Helen turned the house over to the Eastern Washington State Historical Society in memory of her mother. Since then, this haunted house has had many supernatural encounters. Reported sightings include children playing in the bedrooms, unexplained noises, and even claims that the eyes on the portrait of Amasa Campbell seem to follow you. Even those who don’t encounter spirits report a general sense of uneasiness and dread when visiting the house.

The Historic Davenport Hotel

Known for being the most luxurious hotel in downtown Spokane, the Historic Davenport Hotel is also one of the most haunted. From humble beginnings, the Davenport Hotel started as a waffle restaurant opened by Llewellyn Marks “Louis” Davenport in 1889. By 1914, the location bloomed into the original Davenport Hotel. Mr.Davenport loved his hotel so much that he lived in Suite 1103 all the way until his death in 1951.

Nowadays, several guests and plenty of employees working the night shift have reported seeing a ghost-like figure roaming the halls in a bathrobe and slippers. This is especially haunting once you learn that Mr.Davenport was known to habitually wake up at 3 a.m and walk around the hotel in his bathrobe and slippers to ensure that his guests were safe and comfortable. So, it seems like Mr.Davenport is still lovingly tending to his guests even after his passing.

While the presence of Mr. Davenport’s spirit is more comforting than haunting, the same cannot be said about our next spirit. The main spirit that is believed to haunt the Davenport is that of Ellen McNamara, a rich New York widow who met her untimely demise after crashing through the skylight in 1920. Ellen didn’t die immediately on impact, but she ultimately succumbed to her injuries in the hotel. She is often spotted peering curiously over the balcony.

 

The Bing Crosby Theater

The Bing Crosby Theater, a well-renowned concert and event venue here in Spokane, has two long-standing ghosts that have been spotted by patrons throughout the years at the haunted theater. The first is a former stage manager. This stage manager was known for working tirelessly and dedicating himself fully to his position at the theater. Late one night, the unnamed stage manager took a break backstage and sat himself down on an ottoman for a breather. While sitting here, he suffered a heart attack and died on the ottoman. Those who venture backstage into the theater’s green room report seeing his apparition sitting quietly like he was the night he died.

Second, and perhaps more notoriously, is a female ghost known to pace the theater’s balcony. It’s rumored that the young woman was waiting for her lover to meet her at the theater so that they could run away together. When he didn’t show, the heartbroken lovebird flung herself off the balcony and did not survive the impact. Many reports state seeing her pacing along the balcony to this day, still waiting for her lost lover.

The Peyton Building

The Peyton Building Spokane Washington

Last, but certainly not least, is the historic Peyton Building and Annex. The Peyton building was built in 1898 and arose from the ashes of the Great Eastern Building. Taking a look back in time, The Great Eastern Building was gutted by a fire that broke out in the middle of the night on January 24th, 1898. Unfortunately, this fire claimed the lives of eight people who lived on the upper floors of the Great Eastern Building. With only the exterior wall intact following the fire, the building was purchased by Colonel Isaac N. Peyton in 1898. The Peyton was built using the remaining walls of the Great Eastern. This could be one reason spirits are still tethered to the property to this day. Fun Fact: The Peyton building was built the same year & by the same architect as the Campbell House, Kirtland K. Cutter (Cutter & Malmgren).

The Launch Field

Balloon Fiesta Park’s launch field alone is comparable to the size of 54 football fields. This 60+ acre area is necessary to accommodate the 500+ balloons that launch during the event. The total expanse of the park is a whopping 365 acres, custom designed to hold the largest ballooning event on Earth. Since its humble inception at a shopping mall parking lot in 1972, with a total of 13 balloons, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta has grown into the most photographed event in the world.

Special Shape Rodeo

The Special Shape Rodeo started in 1989 and has become the most popular event at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Since the Balloon Fiesta started the Special Shape Rodeo, many events around the world have followed suit and many have now added some form of special shape event into their own programs.

The first Special Shape Rodeo was such a success that it caused major traffic jams and drew huge crowds of people in. This first rodeo featured twenty-eight special-shaped balloons and took place on solid ground. Each year the rodeo grew more and more. The rodeo saw 35 shapes in 1990, 45 shapes in 1991, 62 shapes from eight countries in 1992, and a whopping 108 shapes in 1996. The 1996 rodeo was the largest Special Shape Rodeo to date.

America’s Challenge Gas Balloon Race is one of the world’s two premier distance races for gas balloons. It is modeled after the Coupe Aeronautique Gordon Bennett, the world’s oldest air race and the world championship for distance gas ballooning. America’s Challenge Gas Balloon Race was founded by the Ballon Fiesta in 1995 through the vision and efforts of Mark Sullivan, former Balloon Fiesta president. In addition, Mark Sullivan was also the recipient of the Montgolfier Diplome, one of ballooning’s highest honors. Sullivan saw the need for America to be identified with the world’s most prestigious ballooning sport and thus the America’s Challenge Gas Balloon Race was born.

The field is set for the 25th America’s Challenge gas balloon distance event. Eight teams representing five countries are making preparations to participate in this prestige event.

Balloon Glow

Obviously the sight of balloons lit up at night like giant holiday ornaments was breathtaking. As a result, glow events are now held all over the world. Balloon Fiesta launched its Balloon Glow, the world’s biggest, in 1987. Balloon Glow all burns are perhaps the most spectacular sight out of all of the spectacles at the Balloon Fiesta.

About the Farm

Blue Roots Cannabis Co. was founded in 2013 with the purpose of providing their friends with top-shelf cannabis products. All of their cannabis is produced and processed safely in their state-of-the-art facility from the highest grade, small-batch flower. They pride themselves on their commitment to quality over quantity.

How They Grow

Blue Roots Cannabis Co Black Diamond

At Blue Roots Cannabis Co. they start with water that has been purified via a reverse osmosis system to guarantee purity and strip away any chemicals or contaminants. A proprietary blend of nutrients is added to ensure their plants are being fed precisely what they require from clone to harvest. Their climate rooms create a hyper-controlled environment that echoes what these plants would be exposed to outside during a perfect growth cycle. They’ve taken the best nature has to offer without the fear of drought, windstorm, heatwave, dust storm, or frost to create the cleanest cannabis on the market. Terpenes give each strain its own individual identity, which is why each plant is grown and harvested with this in mind. A perfect balance sometimes means a small sacrifice in slightly lower THC points so that they can cultivate strains with exceptional flavor and provide a well-rounded high.

How They Care for Their Plants

Each of the plants at Blue Roots Cannabis Co. is inspected daily by a member of their growing team While it may be a tedious process, this guarantees that any anomalies or pathogens are caught immediately and dealt with accordingly. They water, trellis, and feed all of their plants by hand. This attention to detail is integral to the health of each and every plant. Each plant matters in small-batch cannabis. Because almost every product made by Blue Roots Cannabis Co. begins in their grow, their commitment to quality begins in the grow house. There is little automation under their roof. People are the last and most important element of the Blue Roots grow philosophy and what makes what they do so unique.

LX Farms | About the New Mexico Cannabis Brand

About the Farm

NMBM Purps Cannabis Strain from LX Farms

LX Farms was founded by 2 best friends who both have a lot of experience in the cannabis industry. One of these friends, Shane, has been working in the medical cannabis industry since 2009 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. During this time, Shane traveled the U.S attending and speaking at cannabis trade shows and expos. Shane has grown weed on and off for several years and has even run a few dispensaries as well. Now, he is a single father and co-owner of LX Farms. His best friend Josh has been growing cannabis for almost 2 decades, all while obtaining his master’s degree from UNM. His knowledge and growing experience have led him and Shane to start breeding their own genetics. With their skills combined, they are the ultimate cannabis duo.

Grower Amidst Cannabis Plants at LX Farms

Shane and Josh started LX Farms way back before the days of recreational cannabis. They started it as a hemp farm, but that wasn’t the plan for the long haul. Ultimately, they knew that cannabis was on track to becoming recreationally available. So, starting as a hemp farm gave them the opportunity to do some test runs and get some experience in their newly built facility. Once the ball dropped and cannabis became recreationally legal, LX Farms became what it was destined to be in May of 2022. This family-owned farm is run by Shane and Josh with the help of two cousins. Together, these four run and do everything all on their own. They are truly passionate about well-rounded, high-quality cannabis.

About the Grow

Cannabis Plant at LX Farms

At LX Farms, they pride themselves on being very natural-based and clever and never use pesticides. In terms of what you can expect to see on the shelves, LX Farms currently sells wholesale flower and shake. However, they plan to offer more products in the near future. They want to release some special pre-rolls and their own unique spin on rosin. For growing, they use a peat moss/pearlite medium in an indoor hydroponic setup with double-ended HPS lights.

About the Team

Shane New Mexico Bearded Man NMBM

When asked how cannabis has impacted his life, Shane says that it has positively influenced him in so many ways. He thanks cannabis for allowing him to pursue this passion and feels blessed to have this opportunity. Not only to be selling legal cannabis but to experience the benefits of cannabis first-hand. He says it saved his life! Now, he’s able to share the wonderful benefits of cannabis with his community down in New Mexico thanks to LX Farms.

Shane NMBM New Mexico Bearded Man at LX Farms

In terms of what inspired Shane and Josh to start growing, the answer is pretty simple. They were tired of buying it! So, they continued growing cannabis in pursuit of their dreams of owning a farm. Ultimately, their goal with LX farms is to not only provide quality cannabis but to educate and help others. They have even created some of their own strains to help and target their needs. So, in the end, the goal at LX Farms is to focus on health, care, and their long-time passion.

Strains

Currently, LX Farms offers a few in-house strains like NMBM Purps, Oroku Saki, and Tangie Head Change in addition to a few others like Kraft and Manzano Express for a total of 10 in-house strains.

Rochester Farms | Who They Are and What They’re About

About the Farm

Rochester Farms is a tier three producer/processor in Washington state and have been distributing to retailers since January of 2017. They started to distribute later than most producers because they intentionally took the time to carefully plan, design, and engineer a state-of-the-art facility that would allow them to efficiently grow high-quality cannabis for you. They are now producing about five hundred pounds of cannabis flower per month. This allows them to continually provide fresh, high-quality products to you at an affordable price.

Green Crack Cannabis Plant from Rochester Farms

Rochester Farms makes use of industrial automation borrowed from the tulip industry in Holland and is one of the most advanced irrigation systems in the cannabis sphere. Owner Marshall says that what initially got him interested in cannabis was the business opportunity. He says his son had some issues when he was young, including ulcerative colitis, and none of the medical care that he received was very effective at helping him. Once a friend suggested that Marshall try cannabis to help relieve his son’s symptoms, and they began to see improvement. As a businessman, Marshall realized that he had the skills under his belt to distribute this miracle plant to the people of Washington.

Growing & Cultivation

Cannabis Plants Growing at Rochester farms

Image Source

Rochester Farms makes use of flood and drain tables, also known as ebb and flow tables. In this system, the roots begin growing out of the rock wool cubes that they are planted in. The water irrigates about a quarter way up the cube, pushing all of the stale air out of the medium, and as the water then drains it will replenish the root cube with fresh oxygen. This is a very effective way of cultivating that does not involve a lot of irrigation. Their plants also receive full spectrum LED lights which ultimately deliver the best indoor light quality to the plants.

At Rochester Farms, they also make use of the “Sea of Green” technique. Sea of Green (often short-handed SOG) is a gardening method that growers use to grow the maximum number of plants possible in the shortest amount of time. To do this, they take small plants and quickly flip them right into flower. This is possible because their plants are grown from clones, not seeds. Plants that are grown from seed take at least 2 months to reach full maturity, whereas clones are taken from the apical meristem (the fastest growing part of a plant) of an already mature plant. The combination of these techniques along with the technology they implement allows Rochester Farms to consistently deliver quality product to retailers all over Washington.

Eagle Trees | Welcoming a New Farm to the Cinder Family

About the Farm

Kenny and Jesse from Eagle Trees

Image Source

Eagle Trees is a family farm located on the Nooksack River beneath majestic Mt.Baker. They grow 100% sun & greenhouse-grown premium cannabis. They are proud to grow their plants in the Pacific Northwest’s organic living native soil. Each of their ladies is fed a home-brewed compost tea and tended to with great affection. For pest prevention, they primarily use the skills of beneficial insects and never use synthetic or salt-based nutrients. At Eagle Trees, they grow their premium cannabis the way you would want your food grown — 100% natural and in tune with their values.

Eagles in Tree

Image Source

The name Eagles Trees comes from the phenomenon that happens at the end of every year after the salmon have laid their spawn in the Nooksack River. Once the cold weather rolls around, convocations of eagles will come in and pick off the remaining salmon. When they come in, the eagles perch themselves across the treetops around the Nooksack River. The sheer amount of eagles that perch themselves atop these trees has led people to start calling these groves the Eagle Trees. Thus, Eagle Trees Farm was born.

About the Family

Kenny Ingebrigston

kenny ingebrigston co founder and grower at eagle trees farm

Image Source

Kenny Ingebrigston, farmer and co-founder of Eagle Trees Farm, started his cannabis journey in middle school when he stayed with his older sister Jesse. She unashamedly showed Kenny her weed for the first time. It was just a harmless little mason jar full of herbs sitting on her shelf. In high school, Kenny tried weed for the first time. It was this experience that made him feel like something had been unlocked and set free, a spiritual awakening. Shortly after, he remembers sitting on his friend’s porch and saying, “It sounds weird, but I think this is what I’m going to do with the rest of my life.” At the time it did seem crazy. But now we know Kenny was speaking the truth.

Kenny’s Cannabis Journey

Kenny and His Cannabis Plants

Image Source

As he used cannabis more, it fascinated him to think of where it was coming from. The thought of someone caring so much about a plant that they would risk getting locked in a cage was baffling to him. Between ounces of “BC Bud”, he would occasionally get his hands on some “homegrown” with names like Romulan, Northern Lights, Shiva, Dutch Treat, and White Rhino. As time went on his eyes were opened to the plethora of effects and qualities cannabis was capable of. With each new strain, he developed an eye for quality and a hunger for more information.

Eagle Trees Farm Family

In 2007, Kenny made his first trip to work in Humboldt county and the next year he grew his first plants. Since then he’s been learning, growing, collecting genetics, and preserving them by making seeds. Now that prohibition had lifted, he’s fortunate to have the ability to farm with his friends and family by his side. He believes that growing plants under the sun, directly in the ground, without chemical fertilizers and pesticides is the way to produce quality ganja. When Kenny consumes cannabis, he wants to taste the terroir of the land where it was grown; The flavors and nuances that come from its specific regional micro-climate and soil.

Jesse Straight, operator and co-founder of Eagle Trees Farm, was inspired by her brother Kenny’s passion for great cannabis. With Kenny, she created a plan that could bring the family together and support his art. A world-traveling mother of two, Jesse is a force to be reckoned with. She has taken her decades of experience and brought together a team of talented folks who treat each other like family. Jesse’s vision is clear. She wants to create a business that is true to the values that she and her family believe in so strongly. Her cannabis will be grown in partnership with nature, the business will be run as a family operation, and Whatcom county is home. Jesse wants to share her love of music, food, nature, cannabis, and community through farm tours, parties, and other pop-up events.

OG Kush

Macro Lens, high quality marijuana weed OG Kush is a fairly ambiguous strain that was first cultivated in Florida in the early 90s. It was here that some unknown strain from Northern California was supposedly crossed with Chemdawg, Lemon Thai, and a Hindu Kush plant from Amsterdam. The result was a hybrid with a unique terpene profile that boasts a complex aroma with notes of fuel, skunk, and spice. OG Kush smells like lemon-pine-fuel with a high-THC head and body high. This strain is sure to chill you out and rev up your stomach with some munchies.

T-N-A Farms | About the New Mexico Cannabis Brand

Coming at you with another New Mexico farm this week! Today, we’re introducing T-N-A farms.

About the Farm

T-N-A Farms is lovingly operated by Owner Angelina Torres and Master Grower Teddy Segura. The two have been together for 3 years and even met in the cannabis industry. Angelina and Teddy met working for a medical dispensary in Albuquerque and have been together ever since. Afterward, Angelina worked as a district manager for another company until she left in pursuit of her dreams. Angelina and Teddy’s love for weed led them to receive the first license in Valencia County just before recreational sales began. Then, they began operation in March of 2022 as their first babies began popping out of the soil on the 28th.

Now, T-N-A Farms is producing cannabis from seed and hand trimming every plant themselves with a little extra help during harvest time. In addition, they never use chemical pesticides and only use organic neem oil on the rare occasion that it is needed. So, when you buy weed from T-N-A farms, you’re getting a product that has been cared for from seed to flower with no exposure to harsh chemicals.

When it comes to their passion for cannabis, Angelina says that weed “has had a tremendous impact [on her] life. [She] got into the industry right after a very tough time in [her] life and it has definitely saved [her] life in the very best way! It has also acted as the best medicine for [her] depression and anxiety growing up to avoid prescriptions. Teddy has as well. He suffered from a very traumatic motorcycle accident when he was younger. So, he has used cannabis throughout his healing and continues to benefit from it for his PTSD from the accident.”

Strains

Cannabis Plants from T-N-A Farms

At T-N-A Farms, their goal is to target specific strains that thrive in their atmosphere and allow them to grow to their maximum potential. So, they’re always looking at different breeders for different strains of seeds. Currently, they offer wholesale flower. However, they hope to expand in the future and possibly work with an extracting company to make distillate oil with all of their prime trimmings, or maybe even oil for infused restaurants that are in the making!
