Marijuana Encyclopedia 16 - Analytics with Rootworx

Right after our 4/20 Special with both our sponsors, Ryan Galford of Rootworx shifted gears along with Plant Manager Anna Kantzer and shared deep results of analytics. They literally came with every analytic result since they started.

Marijuana Encyclopedia Episode 15 - 420 Special with Rootworx and Green Barn Farms

This podcast is with our Sponsors and we had an amazing time celebrating legal marijuana and comparing the vast differences between a premium indoor facility run on science and rocket plasmas against a premium sungrown farm run on sunlight and local manure.

Ryan Galfordhomie of the show and COO of Rootworx brought along Anna Kantzer, Plant Manager. That just means she does everything. He also brought me a pretty cool gift to store my weed! My new TMNT Lunchbox!

Also at the table was Stephen Jensen, President of Green Barn Farms. They do magnificent sungrown in conditions that are perfect for plant growth, using super-local soil amendments. He brought a jar full of marijuana products. I can't wait to visit them near this year's havest time.

People and Table
Co-host Aaron is also the Hashslinger at Cannabis 21 in Aberdeen, WA - he made several different infused and virgin (for those who preferred) mocktails that were just all outstanding.

Overall, this was just a fantastic experience. While we did not record on 4/20, it was definitely a 4/20 worthy celebration and discussion about legal marijuana. We had drinks and food, two long sessions of recording.

Marijuana Encyclopedia Episode 14

After recording Episode 13 with our friends at Seattle's Private Reserve, co-host Aaron and I sat down to shoot a bit of video. This is our first-first effort at video together. I haven't done much else but edit some home video and gaming footage before. It's definitely something we'll improve as we learn. I learned quite a bit already.

I like to consider the quality of my first review with photos of product compared with the quality of a recent flower review. The video quality will improve, hopefully as quickly as other aspects of this site have progressed. We also have some great new collaborators coming, some of whom are bringing experience (and much needed equipment) in the video and art realms. Let us know what you think!

Marijuana Encyclopedia Episode 13 - Seattle's Private Reserve

The kind people at Seattle's Private Reserve dropped by to talk about their super-premium legal marijuana brand. Minh and Cody stopped by and we tried several of their strains and products. This was a dab heavy episode, and at one point I even had to run from the table to get my cool again - a first for me.

Episode 13 - Around the Table

One aspect we discussed in several ways is the plush, exclusive looking packaging. Their labels, the designwork, the (plastic!) jar in cardboard, their cardboard envelopes, and especially the small glass jars for their concentrates. It's elegant and premium. A note on this - we didn't get strain analysis information for much of this product.

Marijuana Encyclopedia Episode 12 - Neighborhood Hash Party

This Encyclopedia is an exploration of several varieties of soon-to-be-legal hash preparations. I sat down with some neighbors who all smoke marijuana and enjoyed a little hashish and hilarity.
