This City Smokes More Weed Than Any Other

The post This City Smokes More Weed Than Any Other appeared first on High Times.

A newly released report shows that one city smokes more weed than any other. Can you guess which city it is? Here are three hints. It’s a major metropolis on the East Coast in the United States. It’s known for housing artists, musicians and business tycoons alike. It has a reputation for being “the city that never sleeps”. We’re talking, of course, about New York City. And this city smokes more weed than any other city in the world.

This City Smokes More Weed Than Any Other


According to newly released research results by the company Seedo, New York City had the highest rates of cannabis consumption. Not only in the United States, but in the world. The published data shows that the population of New York City consumed an average of 77.44 metric tons of marijuana last year alone.

For a city that still formally prohibits the possession, use and sale of weed, this is quite impressive. Especially since the medical marijuana program in New York does not permit patients to smoke their medicine.

For a comparison, the city with the second highest cannabis consumption rate in the world is Karachi, located in Pakistan. The people of Karachi went through an average of 41.95 metric tons of marijuana.

Interestingly enough, the city in the United States with the next highest rate of cannabis consumption was Los Angeles, California. They consumed only 36.06 metric tons of cannabis last year.

Weed Smokers Have Started The Crab Dab Challenge

The post Weed Smokers Have Started The Crab Dab Challenge appeared first on High Times.

There’s a new trend out there among weed smokers called the “crab dab challenge”. And it’s just as wild as it sounds.

Over the last few years, people on social media have been filming strange stunts and calling them “challenges.” It started out mild with the ice bucket and cinnamon challenges. Now, kids are lighting themselves on fire with rubbing alcohol or dumping boiling water on unsuspecting victims for the ‘gram.

The worst recent challenge would have to be the tide pod challenge. Biting into a capsule filled with toxic detergent is apparently cool to kids today.

Weed smokers have started their own viral sensation called the “crab dab challenge.” Fortunately, this fad doesn’t involve harming oneself or others for temporary internet fame. However, the participants are mildly annoying crabs for a laugh.

What Is A Dab?

Weed Smokers Have Started The Crab Dab Challenge

When we say dab we don’t mean the outdated dance move. There are definitely videos of crabs doing the dab dance out there on the internet. However, in this case, we’re talking about a single serving of cannabis concentrates. Concentrates typically have high levels of THC and they can be oils, crystals, waxes or shatter.

“Dabbing” is the vaporization of a dab or a small amount of concentrate. Typically a dab is done by torching a nail until it is hot enough to vaporize cannabinoids and terpenes. Then a dab tool is used to safely add the dab to …

Quartz Bangers

TAG big quartz bangerOne of the beautiful things about TAG is that we don’t just stock “the same old” when it comes to smoking and dabbing accessories. A prime example we should talk about here is probably the TAG 30x2mm Quartz Banger. Now, it’s important to note that this is a freakin’ big banger.

If you’re new to the dabbing game, we probably would recommend AGAINST such a huge banger, but seasoned pros asked for this particular bucket, and TAG provided. Not only is this thick, high quality quartz… it’s also laser engraved with the TAG logo. And hey, who can doubt the words of TAG customer Felixe B., who notes, “It’s lit”.

Yes Felixe. It is.

Quartz bangers aren’t always the same old at TAG, as we noted. A good example might be the TAG Quartz Trough High Flow Banger, a super thick, completely fantastic “trough …

Hiding The Smoke Smell

Just because you enjoy a certain hobby doesn’t necessarily mean you want to broadcast it to the entire world. Many people like to keep their hobbies private, and when you’re talking smoking, you’re probably talking about some kind of stigma involved. Hence, when you enjoy legal herbs and concentrates for either recreational or pain management, you might not want the universe to know.

There are certainly eye drops you can get to minimize the redness but smell of smoke is one of those things that’s a bit harder to cover up. People who smoke tobacco run into the same issue: the smell can cling. It clings to your hair, your clothing, your shoes, vehicle; anything. There are ways to manage and minimize the smell while still enjoying your hobby to the fullest. Maybe you need to manage it for work or maybe you just don’t like the smell of it yourself. Whatever your reason, here are some handy tricks for you to try.

When It’s On Your Person

Having the smell of legal herbs clinging to your clothes can dampen anyone’s mood. You don’t necessarily want to broadcast to your office what you do on your spare time and maybe you just want to save yourself the sermon from a conservative relative.

The best option to remove the smell from your clothes, skin and hair is to have a shower and change your clothes. Sounds simple, right? It might be simple but it’s not always doable. If you’ve had a hit while on your

Colorado Cops Think Powdered CBD Is Cocaine

The post Colorado Cops Think Powdered CBD Is Cocaine appeared first on High Times.

Does powdered CBD look too much like cocaine? Marijuana has been fully legal in Colorado for the past five years. It is a scenario that has given the cannabis industry the foothold needed to get on the path to becoming one of the fastest growing and most profitable business sectors operating in the United States. But despite legalization, law-abiding citizens still jam up in the state’s legal system because municipal police officers cannot seem to tell the difference between cannabis products and illegal drugs that could potentially land someone in prison.

Crystal Turner

This situation has the Turner family in a state of peril. All because a small town cop mistook powdered CBD for cocaine.

Douglas County resident Crystal Turner recently began using CBD to combat her muscle pain. The 32-year-old software engineer and mother of four has trouble taking over-the-counter pain relievers. They make her nauseous. But Crystal found success with powdered CBD. The herb proved to be a solid remedy for her aches and pains. It also helped to improve her overall state of mind.

“It helped with my body pain, it helped with my mood even, and didn’t have any side effects,” she said.

A Twisted Turn

In October, as Crystal drove home from work, an officer with the Parker Police Department pulled her over, seemingly about expired tags. But a routine traffic stop transitioned into a question about whether she possessed illegal drugs. The officer, …

It’s a smart idea to have your basic water pipe be made of scientific glass and to try to keep the size under 15”. This glass beaker pipe, as an example, will let you see the amount of smoke and water inside which will help you control your hits.

Dab Nails & Carb Caps

If you dab, it’s pretty likely you’ll have an essential piece of hardware called a nail. In most applications, you need this to complete the dabbing experience. But did you know that carb caps like this are also useful for dabbing? Lots of people think that carb caps are unnecessary but there’s a lot they’re missing out on by not using one. We’ll go through the different types of nails that are available to help you decide which one suits your needs. We’ll also give you a rundown on why carb caps are so misunderstood. A basic list of dab essentials is here.

Nail Me to the Wall

Like we said before, nails are an essential tool for dabbing. You can’t dab without them but they come in so many different types of materials it can be hard choosing the right one for your needs. You can get nails in glass, ceramic, quartz and titanium. Most dab rigs will come standard with a glass nail but you’ll probably want to upgrade that sooner rather than later.

What a lot of people don’t realize, especially when they’re new to dabbing, is that glass is weak and fragile. Glass can’t withstand consistent high temperatures in one spot without breaking. And that just leaves you with a hot mess you should probably avoid.

A great, light-weight alternative to glass is quartz. These nails are just as pretty and come in several different styles. Just like the rest of the smoking accessories out there, nails
