awesome weed

If you’re over the age of 21, and live in a state where weed is legal, you’ve probably got rolling papers, labeled jars, and a pocket-friendly herb grinder ready to go. There’s nothing wrong with the classics, but technology has evolved, and you can toke up more discretely and efficiently as ever. We’ve found 13 tools and accessories that can help you get high without turning your place into the set of Pineapple Express 2 (Seth, are you listening?)

The best part of baking with pot (besides the end result), is getting to spend time in the kitchen. If you’re not an active home cook, Marijuana Group’s Chocolate Box is a fool-proof way to make tasty, good looking treats.

If you’ve been afraid to make your own edibles because you’re afraid of screwing up main ingredient, this is a set-it-and-forget-it solution.

The official pot smoking holiday — whose origins have been (incorrectly) linked to rock star death anniversaries, the police penal code, and the number of chemical compounds in the THC-rich plant — has grown from a small event on society’s fringes, to a nationally-recognized event.

Step away from the stove, LEVO’s second-generation oil and butter infuser takes all of the guesswork out of brownies (and more).

OG Kush is one of those strains that’s a banger without contest. When asked what strain they would pick if they could only smoke one for the rest of their lives, half our experts chose OG Kush. Pete Pietrangeli, the VP of Cosmic Distribution, responded immediately and without hesitation, “OG Kush. I don’t even have to think about it.”

Chiah Rodriguez, the second-generation cultivator behind River Txai Farms, a Mendocino operation distributed by Arcanna Flowers, puts an equal emphasis on the flower’s smell transferring to the flavor of the smoke. When asked what makes a strain great, Rodriguez shared, “High terpenes and something that has a unique nose and kind of hits you in the face when you open the drawer.”

She continued, “Once we’re done growing a new strain, I like to roll it into a joint and do a dry hit — that to me is the most fun part. It’s important in this dry hit that you’re tasting what you’re smelling. If the flavor carries through when you smoke it, that’s indicative that you have something really good.”

To break down why Tangie is so special, who better than the man responsible for the strain itself — Aaron of DNA Genetics. “As the guy who pushed Tangie out into the world, I’m going to throw it on my list,” he said. “Though I don’t personally love Tangie, I love all the wow factors it has. I would say it checks every box in terms of factors that make a strain great.”

Determining the best strains of all time is like trying to pick the best songs of all time. There’s an endless amount of factors, epic contenders, and at the end of the day, it all comes down to a matter of taste. However, like songs, certain varieties of flower undeniably shine above the rest. These strains, regardless of their current availability, have shaped the modern market and today’s popular products.

While there are numerous factors that contribute to a strain’s greatness, the defining characteristic of a great strain is the smell.

One of the most incredible things about cannabis is its unending versatility. Its ability to morph into a mind-bending amount of varieties is what makes this meditation on the best strains possible, yet it’s also what makes it difficult for strains to maintain their original high and integrity. Once a strain becomes popular, versions are hybridized and grown by a multitude of growers and brands, flooding the market with flower that may not even resemble the original cut.

(No, we’re not just talking about New Jersey.)

Just ’cause it’s legal doesn’t mean they’ve got to walk around reeking of it.
