Marijuana Encyclopedia Episode 30 - Sweet Leaf Cannaversary

It seems like it was so long ago the first time I visited funky, upbeat, boutique Sweet Leaf in Aberdeen. I met the amazing Liz who went from customer to budtender to store manager! She put together the best vendor event I have seen yet and the most legal cannabis producer processor brands outside of HempFest.

This store is totally the best shop in Aberdeen! They have an outstanding boutique selection curated by Liz and her select team of cannaseur-budtenders. Each of these team members is an emerging expert in #WAPot. They have some of the very best pot in the cannabis market on their shelves, many of them came to this cannaversary party to help celebrate and share the love! The Sweet Leaf team outdid themselves. They took turns to come mingle while there was a massive flow of traffic throughout this. You're all rockstars and I appreciate the hell out of everything you do! We know your customers do too, they were all sharing how much love Sweet Leaf has for them, too.

The primary goal here was being able to reach out to customers, talk directly about products, educate individuals, and share the cannabis normalization message. I'd say this was a massive success, and to date the best legal marijuana retailer party that I've had the opportunity to join!

Marijuana Encyclopedia Episode 29 - High 5 Meet Heavenly Buds

Our awesome sponsor High 5 Cannabis is hosting a huge number of high profile Meet the Grower events, including our amazing friends Heavenly Buds! This venue already feels like an upscale social club. It only makes sense to add in a variety of fun, informative events showcasing the best brands in #WAPot! High 5 Cannabis is doing it right and the staff are unique individuals.

This was outstanding! High 5 Cannabis let me use the front end desk/table piece they have from an old Ford (it's believed to be a '55). I got to podcast from there, chill with the crowd right as they walked up, talk about what I do, tell tales of High 5 Cannabis and Heavenly Buds, and share the love!

Overall, this was an excellent time. The atmosphere was festive and informative. Customers all mentioned how they felt they were learning a large amount. One even sat down on the podcast - thanks Jerri!

We also did some of our first giveaways, handing out swag bags featuring a variety of #WAPot brands stickers, doob tubes, Tshirts, hats, and more! It was such a fun time!

Marijuana Encyclopedia Episode 28 - Mat Lee hotbox.earth

Sometimes you meet a person and think, "Wow. This person has got some issues. I should be their friend." Mat Lee is just such a fellow. He's a boisterous, loud, wild cannabis professional with years of podcasting, reviewing, and writing under his belt. He is also managing editor at Cannabiz Journal, and brought another editor and writer/photog, Michael Hagar along. Since then, Michael and I had a chill session with some sparkling Honu Live Resin.

While this is not the longest ever Marijuana Encyclopedia, it was indeed the longest ever session with a guest. We hung out for 10 hours, talking, sharing, discussing, and most of all living that #dablife. I feel like I met a kindred spirit in that regard. I have to say though, I felt like a novitiate next to this rockstar dab lab rat prolific and hardworking professional.

Being a 'professional' is even harder. Apparently, you also have to have a massive amount of glass and Pelican cases to carry them in. This is what separates professionals from other categories of cannaseur. Mat Lee definitely had that. He is a glass reviewer after all. There's nothing cannabis related this guy won't do - we even talked a bit about suppository reviews (he likes them 3 at a time, that's what he said off the record, I swear).

Northwest Pearl in Shelton, WA


I first picked up Northwest Pearl cannabis just a few months into my cannabis review career. The cannabis is great and I found out these dudes are cool, too! I reached out early via social media to ask, hey what's with this "L.O. Edition" on this Truthband OG? I got a response that it was a grower's moniker. Right on!

Similarly with "Blue Enzo". Enzo is a grower too. Cool stuff. I didn't really expect that a half a year later, I'd be touring his legal, recreational cannabis grow facility in Shelton, WA after getting absolutely faded and into an depth, flowing conversation on Marijuana Encyclopedia Episode 26 with them! Seriously, the coolest of the cool right here.

They're in Shelton, WA - this abundant little town seems to love the Aging Ent and I love them right back.  #SheltonWeed is great!
