Tailgating With Cannabis: 10 Strain and Product Must-Haves for Football Season

Finally, football season is in full swing. With it comes tailgating. And with tailgating comes cannabis, or ought to. If you’re not incorporating the herb into your football fan routine, you’re doing it wrong.

Seriously, does anyone actually want to be pounding Bud Lights at 10 in the morning? The answer (usually) is a resounding no—particularly when you can wake and bake instead. From infused barbecue and dipping sauces to a full-on football dab rig, add the following to your tailgating arsenal to have the best football season ever.

Cannabis-Infused Popcorn

Sweet and savory options abound: lucky Cardinals fans with medical cards can get Sublime Caramel Popcorn or Karmel Korn from Arizona-based Cornucopia, while Chargers, Rams, Raiders, and 49ers fans can snack on California-based Korova’s White Cheddar Popcorn (careful—300mg THC per bag). Pro tip: If you want to avoid accidentally overconsuming delectable infused snacks like these, mix a sensible portion of THC-infused stuff with a non-infused counterpart, like Smartfood—and always be sure to label the bowl and set it well apart from non-infused snacks.

Team-Themed Strains

Seahawks fans can no longer call Marshawn Lynch their own, but they can still think fondly back to the days the city was shaken by the Beast Quake, with strains like the hybrid Beastmode OG or indica-leaning Beastmode 2.0. Raiders fans can hunt these down too, now that Lynch has signed a two-year contract with the team, as can football fans in Las Vegas as they watch and look forward to the Raiders’ move to their city in 2020. Fans of college football have strains to choose from, too—UW and WSU, for instance, both have strains associated with them. And regardless of the strain you’re hunting down, check dispensaries in the area for potential deals for fans—for example, 21+ Ducks fans and alums can score discounts at Phresh Start on the outskirts of Eugene.

Infused Barbecue Sauce

There’s a cannabis-infused barbecue recipe for everyone. Making chicken thighs or pulled pork? Barbecue chef Ryan Swartling has graced us all with original recipes he developed for Lemon Haze Barbecue Pulled Pork and Gochujang Hatch Pepper Sativa Barbecue Chicken. Love chicken wings? Make these ones, infused with Blue Dream. Simply want an easy sauce available for burgers, ribs, and more? Check out ready-made options like Oregon-based Wild Urban Edibles’ Wild Urban BBQ.

No time to infuse the wings themselves? Dip them in a potent, savory sauce like the Ranch or Blue Cheese dressings from California-based GanjaEats (which also offers BBQ Sauce, Jalapeño Slices, and other tailgating necessaries).

Terpene Ales and Hemp Brews

While there’s no need to chug Bud Light, it doesn’t feel like a tailgate without a few brews. If you’re in California, keep an eye out for famously 420-friendly Lagunitas’ new SuperCritical Ale, brewed with cannabis terpenes in partnership with AbsoluteXtracts. It’s only available on tap in California for now (fill a growler if you’re in that state), but you can find other cannabis-minded beers in bottles, like this Two Flowers IPA, a CBD- and hemp-infused concoction from Oregon’s Coalition Brewing.

You can find pipes, bongs, dab rigs, and pretty much any other themed accessories you could desire sprinkled throughout local dispensaries, sold by online head shops, or available from individual sellers on Etsy.

Cannabis Coffees and Cocoas

For a.m. tailgates, a combo of cannabis and caffeine is the way to go. While some infused hot coffee options leave a lot to be desired in terms of flavor (and often in terms of effects), cold brews tend to be better. Favorites include (for Washington and Oregon footballers) Mirth Provisions’ sativa-infused Legal Coffee Mocha and (for California fans) SF-based Somatik.

MacGyver Pipe Challenge: Four Contestants Make One-Hitters Out of Everyday Objects

Contestant #4: Nick and His ‘Pied Pepper of Highlin’ Pipe

Strain Smoked Pre-Construction: Romulan via bubbler

Items Used:

  • Paper clips
  • Bell pepper
  • Paper towel roll
  • Clear tape
  • Stickers
  • Pen

Time Needed: 12 minutes, plus three minutes for testing…and retesting…and retesting

(Leafly)

“I can definitely tell that I smoked something. I like that.”

Nick

Perhaps Nick had music on his mind when he surveyed the available construction materials, ultimately reaching for a fat bell pepper and a paper towel roll to build something that a flautist could use to jam out a stoned solo. Unfortunately, the pen proved too narrow to draw a satisfying pull, leaving our judges frustratingly clear-headed (although they did concede that Nick’s creation has “got personality in droves” and loved its “character”).

Judges’ Feedback:

“No, I can’t get anything…maybe we have to MacGyver this one!”

And the Winner Is…

“Dude, that is money in the bank!”

Judge Jeremiah, after testing Maria’s gum-bler

Maria’s gum-bler won the judges over with its minty freshness and “kickass” fruitiness. Not only did our panel keep going back for more hits, the judges loved its minimalist design and ability to “hide in plain sight” without looking like an obvious stoner device. Congratulations, Maria! MacGyver would be proud.

At BRNT Designs, Four University of Alberta Students Aim to Build a Better Bong

For many people, college is where they first encountered and learned to properly handle a bong. But for a quartet of students at the University of Alberta, college is where they hatched and began prototyping their plan to build a better bong—an easily cleanable rig designed to withstand humanity’s tendency to drop things, yet stylish enough to warrant display in the home.

Thus began BRNT Designs, which found the four UAlberta students—two mechanical engineering students, two business students—working with the vice dean of the business school to help make their dream bong a physical and commercial reality.

BRNT’s first project: the Hexagon, a ceramic bong with a striking, angular design that’s engineered to be dishwasher- and freezer-safe as well as drop-resistant. (That’s it pictured above.) This fall, BRNT will be launching an online crowdfunding campaign to fund the Hexagon. This week, I talked to BRNT CEO Simon Grigenas and Chief Marketing Officer Andrew Feltham about their bongly ambitions and histories and the challenges of navigating the sporadically legal recreational cannabis marketplace.

RELATED STORY

Cannabis Science 101: The Complex Chemistry of the Bong

LEAFLY: Let’s start at the beginning—what was your first experience with any sort of bong?

SIMON: My first experience was when I was much younger, with a bong I made myself. I was at a buddy’s house, and we cut up a two-liter plastic bottle and made something with that. The first bong I ever purchased came from the corner-store head shop, where I picked out the cheapest glass bong I could find. A month and a half later, I knocked it over and it broke, and that was that.

Simon, Andrew, and the Hexagon prototype

ANDREW: I just recently started smoking, and my first experience with a bong was with Simon’s rig.

SIMON: Our prototype BRNT bong is now our go-to dab rig. We’ve been working with different prototypes for the past year, and we’ve really grown fond of this one we’re using now, which has a quartz banger in it.

Did your previous experience with bongs supply you with a list of complaints and shortcomings you knew you wanted to address with your own bong? 

SIMON: I was the one who had the most experience with cannabis use. I’m a medical marijuana patient in Canada, and I’m treated for a head trauma I had a few years back. So I brought all my knowledge of bongs—having difficulty cleaning glass bongs in the past, having trouble with bongs breaking or falling of a coffee table and cracking. Those are some of the things I wanted to change. And then there was the experience of the past five years, reading about cannabis accessories, putting ice in your bong. I wanted to be able to cool smoke even more, by ensuring our bong is freezer-safe.

RELATED STORY

This Guy Just Made Your Bong Ten Times Better

What’s been the most surprising bump in the road in the prototyping of your bong?

SIMON: Finding engineers. We have two engineers in-house, and we also worked with contracted engineers. And a lot of them didn’t have a lot of experience with cannabis. You have to bring all your knowledge to them, show them what you’re looking to do, and really work back-and-forth to make sure the design suits the functionality. It was tough, and we went through a lot of prototypes—different 3-D printed designs and ceramic models—to figure out exactly what the user will have in their hand.

What’s been the biggest challenge in regard to design and functionality?

ANDREW: I’d say the most difficult thing has been heat resistance—working with thermal shock to determine how thick the bong walls need to be, and how the holes are designed on the down-stem, and integrating all those things in a piece that can still go in the dishwasher and freezer

It’s easy to talk about a bong in the abstract. When the Hexagon becomes reality, will you send us one so we can see how it all panned out?

SIMON: Absolutely!

What’s a ‘Grinder Coin’, and How Does It Affect Your Kief Collection?

As an avid cannabis consumer, I’m always looking for opportunities to get more out of my buds. One of the easiest, low-cost ways to extend the life of your cannabis and the tasty trichomes covering it is to get a quality two-chamber grinder. These grinders are usually denoted by their four-piece construction: lid (top grinder), grinder tray (bottom grinder), bud receptacle, and kief catcher. While many cannabis consumers prefer to break up their bud with their hands, I choose to grind my herb because it improves airflow (in a bowl or in a joint) while saving broken trichomes for later use.

RELATED STORY

What Is a Grinder and How Do You Use It for Cannabis?

The addition of a kief catcher allows for the passive harvest of potent, delicious trichomes that can be pressed into hash, added to cannabutter or cannabis-infused coconut oil, or simply sprinkled into a joint or on top of a bowl. In an attempt to gather as much of this unrefined cannabis concentrate as possible, I added one additional (albeit optional) piece to my grinder set-up: a clean coin.

(Leafly)

A “grinder coin” can improve the amount of kief you gather from your ground cannabis without reducing the overall potency of your cannabis-consuming experience too much. People who already utilize a grinder coin go at harvesting their kief in a few different ways. The newest method to me is placing your grinder (containing your freshly ground herb) into the freezer for 5 – 10 minutes before shaking vigorously. I understand the motivation to freeze the trichomes (possibly making them more brittle), but I believe the grinding motion alone should be enough agitation to gather kief without postponing your access to your freshly ground cannabis.

RELATED STORY

What Is Kief and How Can You Use It?

You might be wondering, “Is there a special type of coin I should use in my grinder?” No, but I would note that the size of the coin should be relative to the size of your grinder. If you have a small micro-grinder, a sterilized dime or nickel could work well. Conversely, if you grind a bit more than the Average Joe and have a grinder of considerable size, I would recommend a clean quarter, Loonie, pound, or, for those with a penchant for Feng Shui and lucky numbers, the eight-sided Singapore $1 coin.

These are just a few example, but there are tons of options out there. One that has gotten some recognition in the r/trees subreddit is the 1969 Bahama Islands pineapple five-cent piece. The pineapple, or “highnapple,” is one of the newer symbols in cannabis culture, and this piece of history synthesizes the old world with the new. Check out this Etsy page for the pineapple coin and more cool old coins to add to your grinder.

6 Etsy Shops with Must-Have Cannabis Designs

Obviously, before you drop a piece of loose change you found in your pocket or couch cushions into your grinder, wash and sterile it. This will just take a few moments with some hot water, soap, a sponge, and elbow grease to remove any particulates or patina from the coin. Afterwards, give it a quick shine with 70%+ isopropyl alcohol, pat and air dry, then deposit.

A grinder coin is one more layer of personalization cannabis consumers can add to their setup, and without too much effort. But whether or not you add some change to your cannabis, keep your kief, make something special, and stay on your grind.

Smoke and Mirrors: How Far Will LA Cannabis Brands Go to Out-Market Each Other?

There is a new, invite-only art gallery coming to Los Angeles that will focus on “functional glass art,” which is something of a euphemism for fancy bongs. These elaborate, hand-crafted bongs cost tens of thousands of dollars each, and are part of Grey Space Art’s collection, which is relocating from SoHo, New York to Los Angeles’s Arts District later this year.

RELATED STORY

Cool and Artistic Bongs With an Expensive Price Tag

As California cannabis companies prepare to market to recreational consumers, several brands are throwing exclusive events to entice and impress their future customers. In Los Angeles, the bar is being set higher than anywhere else, with events that blend cannabis, wellness, technology, and luxury popping up weekend after weekend. Lord Jones held a cannabis-infused sound bath on a Hollywood rooftop, while 1964 Supply Co threw an “art fight club.” Luxury brand Beboe’s swanky, celeb-studded launch was written up in Vanity Fair; other companies, like Grassfed, combine cannabis with upscale dining and virtual reality in hopes of standing out.

Grey Space Art seemed bent on outdoing it all. In the midst of Coachella earlier this year, I received an invitation to an exclusive cannabis-infused brunch that would serve as preview of this gallery. I initially dismissed the invitation—the preview was all the way in Rancho Mirage, and I was in LA without a car at my disposal. But the day before the event I received another message—there was one seat left on a helicopter, and it was mine if I wanted it. Who says no to that? I was told a car would pick me up and take me to the rendezvous point.

So the surreal experience began. Sure enough, a black Denali arrived at my apartment in Koreatown at noon and whisked me away to a private airfield in Santa Monica. I boarded a luxury helicopter with six others: a music journalist, a magazine writer, and four totally gorgeous young Insta-famous models who looked like they had stepped straight out of a magazine.

The helicopter dropped us off in Palm Springs, where we got in another car to Rancho Mirage’s Imago Galleries. Imago Galleries was founded by Leisa Austin in 1991, and it is both vast—at 18,000 square feet—and gorgeous. We were greeted by a woman named Century, who led us to a courtyard and sculpture garden complete with a reflecting pool and glasswork by Dale Chihuly.

The first thing I did was score a mezcal cocktail at the bar; then I went to check out this “functional glass art.” Each piece was colorful and incredibly intricate: There was a bong that looked like a blossoming vase, a bong that looked like a satellite, and a bong that represented a goddess. I was then told that a ‘Mr. Grey’ would show me around.

This turned out not to be some 50 Shades situation, thankfully. Mr. Grey is a 22-year-old entrepreneur who recounted how he invested money in cannabis stock five years ago and used the resulting windfall to open his gallery in SoHo. After proving himself in the New York art scene, he said that now was his chance to shift coasts and move the gallery to LA. It’s probably a good move, considering that California has voted to legalize recreational cannabis and New York has not.

It was nearly 100 degrees in Palm Springs, but Grey still wore a terry cloth blazer with shiny gold buttons. His grandmother, invited as well, had in tow an immaculately groomed poodle. In addition to the bongs displayed in the gallery, there were more on the tables. An assault rifle-shaped bong by artists Robert Mickelsen and Calvin Mickle was especially fantastical. Known as Jungle Gun, it is embellished with vibrant glass geckos and detailed leaves and retails at $60,000. It was moved to make way for brunch from Chef Antonia Lofaso (Scopa Italian Roots), which included sweet pea ravioli, charred octopus salad, rib-eye, and vanilla bean bread pudding.

As a pièce de résistance, the event was sponsored by Cartier—a first for the luxury jeweler, which created high-end gold, rose gold, and stainless steel lighters (retail: $900 each) to pair with the glass art. There was, of course, no shortage of cannabis, which guests could dab, eat, or smoke out of 24K gold rolling paper. Dipstick Vapes was on hand, explaining their new product which made it easy to use rosin: Press a button to heat the tip, then dip it into the rosin and inhale.

We were taken back to the airport after the event, where everyone began eating out of a popcorn machine ravenously despite the earlier feast. The pilot asked if they had failed to feed us at the party, but eventually seemed to catch on to the fact that everyone was pleasantly stoned, and we were whisked away back to Santa Monica, once again by private helicopter.

It’s an odd thing, to grow up in a world where getting caught with a baggie of weed earns you a trip to jail, and to emerge as an adult in a world where you be flown in a private helicopter to a cannabis brunch. Events like Grey Space’s are harbingers of the industry’s entrance into luxury spaces in California, a move other industries, including wine and spirits, have already made. These events elevate cannabis while allowing guests a chance to sample new products—which for now are freely given, as selling cannabis to recreational consumers would violate the changing laws.

Then again, one can also argue that ultra-exclusive events catering to the rich and influential are capable of alienating the same kind of mainstream consumer that the industry has long been working to attract. Just how far will brands go to court the upper echelons of potential customers? Surely there’s a brand out there already looking to top Grey Space’s recent display—and others will follow suit. With LA poised to become the unmitigated leader in the recreational cannabis scene when California officially opens its adult-use market in 2018, there’s no telling how far brands will go to outdo each other as they scramble for a slice of market share—or how these types of events will change the face of the industry.

Grey Space Art will maintain its air of exclusivity when it opens in the coming months in Los Angeles, meaning that guests will need to call a number to view the space. That number can be acquired via different means, including asking someone like me—who has been given the requisite business card—if you can borrow it.

Smoke and Mirrors: Designer Cannabis Jewelry to Elevate Any Wardrobe

The most genius thing about wearing cannabis-inspired jewelry is that it’s like a secret handshake between members of a private club—only instead of Skull & Bones, it’s stoners.

The iconic cannabis leaf—usually seven-point in imagery—doesn’t look so different from other less controversial florabotanica iconography that inspires jewelry designs daily. So, not surprisingly, even people who don’t know their indica from their sativa are collecting and wearing herb-inspired pieces, supporting brands that are using their designs to advocate for marijuana legalization. “Most of my [muses] rock the Sweet Leaf, even if they aren’t cannabis users,” fine jeweler Jacquie Aiche told Leafly.

“As business owners in the cannabis industry, we each have a responsibility to move this industry forward in the best manner possible,” Genifer Murray, co-founder of Genifer M, adds. “We aim to create a space in which you can fully express your beliefs, hopes and passion for the healing properties of cannabis with the mission to make a difference in people’s lives. It shatters traditional perceptions of cannabis to reverse 90 years of the propaganda in mainstream culture.”

The next time you’re looking for new bling, start with these five fashion-conscious brands—they give new meaning to the phrase “statement jewelry.”

Jacquie Aiche: If You Wanna Be Like Rihanna

Aiche counts celebrity stoner Rihanna as one of her muses and customers, which is why her Sweet Leaf collection, which includes a $2075 carved body chain, hits Rihanna-level price points, too. (Other muses include models Alessandra Ambrosio, Chanel Iman, Emily Ratajkowski, and Ana Beatriz Barros.) The designs come in three metal finishes: 14K yellow gold, 14K white gold, and of course, 14K rose gold. “The leaf makes people happy, and so [do] diamonds and gold,” Aiche tells Leafly. “I think the major change is the more destigmatized cannabis is, [the] more people are less afraid to wear their Sweet Leaf pieces in public.”

It’s not just sparkle, either. Aiche also sells $190 sweatpants and $440 snake skin doob tubes—because she’s, er, practical.

Genifer M: If You and Your BFF Want Matching Pendants

Smoke and Mirrors: Designer <strong>Marijuana</strong> Leaf Jewelry to Elevate Your Wardrobe | Leafly(Courtesy of Genifer M)

This collection was founded by a father-daughter team—and we all wish our dads had this much good taste.

Genifer Murray co-founded one of the first cannabis testing labs in the United States in 2010 and wanted to represent the marijuana industry in a “non-threatening and elegant way” while she was lobbying. Enter her father, a technically trained gemologist who made a 2.5K diamond pave indica leaf lapel for Murray to wear with her suits.

“I wore the pin everywhere and could see it was not only changing minds, but starting conversations with people that traditionally wouldn’t openly discuss or inquire about cannabis,” she tells Leafly. You can still get lapel pins for as low as $30—and they even come in CBD- and THC-molecule types, too, for the nerdiest among us. Genifer M now offers necklaces, bracelets, earrings, cufflinks, chains, and, yes, some clothing. The Modern Leaf design, which is sold in five-point or seven-point leaves, is the most popular design.

Portland-based High Society Collection is best known for its structural roach clip jewelry, but you can also find a few purely decorative options like these $140 Globe & Tassel earrings. And yet, why would you need them when you could get these Marni-lookalike Mary Jane’s Earrings that are also pinchers for only $45? Many of these pieces are gold-dipped and gold-plated brass, which means you could unobtrusively wear them to work—or dinner with your in-laws—without arousing any suspicions.

Founder and designer Erin Rose Gardner studied metalsmithing and jewelry at the University of Oregon and has been exhibited internationally at Galerie Rob Koudijs in Amsterdam, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft in Houston, Norton Museum of Fine Art in West Palm Beach, and more. If you’re lucky enough to live in the Portland area, the studio offers beginner jewelry-making workshops, too—though these seem to be for simple stacking rings. Roach clips should probably be left to the experts.

This Brooklyn-based jewelry brand, founded by Shana Tabor, prides itself on being manufactured locally in the United States. The cannabis-themed jewelry pieces are limited—wander into the Brooklyn or Portland brick-and-mortar shops and you’ll probably get sidetracked by the pendants with pithy sayings like “I Woke Up Like This” or “Bless This Mess.”

But don’t overlook the Kush stud earrings and necklaces, which come in 14K gold or sterling silver and are classics for any minimalist’s wardrobe. IGWT even sells a brass Zippo lighter that you can get personalized, just to make sure no one “borrows” it.

Sweetflag: If You Wore Millennial Pink Before It Was Cool

Co-founders Luren Jenison and Lydia Okrent knew that cannabis could profoundly elevate your lifestyle—they just didn’t think the products on the market were aesthetically elevating, especially for the type of person who uses the word “curate” to describe their lifestyle. Hence Sweetflag.

There are gorgeous accessories for before, during, and after your smoke, from a rose gold grinder, to a Golden Snitch-shaped orb to store your stash, to color therapy glasses to alter your perspective in another way. The earrings that Sweetflag sells are designed by artists Claire O’Keefe and Eugenia Oliva in Spain—using freshly picked plants from large magnolia leaves to sweeping olive branches, they prove that cannabis-inspired style doesn’t mean slapping a straight-up cannabis leaf on everything. Do tag us on Instagram if you buy anything.
