Canndescent Five Jar

If Adrian Sedlin- the effervescent and ‘crackling with enthusiasm, ever pragmatic man’, his brain postulating in an intense, Miles Davis- Be Bop fashion, …You’ve gotta keep up because he is going a mile a minute and if you can’t take it- well we have a another plan for you… It’s about the way that you feel. And that way or Tao, is very personal, it is very intimate, you’re in there along with your tribe. It’s going to be a ride like a freight train on a high mountain pass, in the middle of the winter. It is filled with deeply personal emotions. Cannabis tends to unlock those feelings. Is that light ahead the end of the tunnel or the future? How do you want to feel? This is what makes Canndescent brilliant and it’s the very best money can buy!

Considering Gravy Cocktails? Perhaps It’s Time to Start Smoking Weed

There is a wealth of sheer depravity buried deep inside the guts of the dedicated boozehound that contributes largely to our debauched society. All one has to do is step inside the halls of Alcoholics Anonymous on any given day to hear rounds of checkered tales about how a lust for liquor has dragged these lost souls of a sudsy nation down a grave rabbit hole of raw dog promiscuity, legal complications and countless nights locked inside a foul-mouthed love affair with a toilet bowl. Indeed the grips of alcoholism is often a schizophrenic beast with puke breath just trying to make it past another vicious hangover to one more happy hour. But there is a point of no return—a rotten, stinkhole of a place, where the true bruisers of the bottle gather before the bitters end. This hellish scene, we are beyond sad to report, is apparently at Kentucky Fried Chicken, the birthplace of gravy cocktails.

Hot Toddy Time!

hot toddy

Is it the New Year already? It seems like Thanksgiving of 2017 was just yesterday. But what makes this time of the year most exciting for me is the creativity in the drinks. Sure, I’m tasting all sorts of mixed drinks- but the ones that I really want to taste are precisely the ones that mean memories for me. Those would be the hot ones. The drinks that go down my throat and make each sniff or sip something unique and friendly.   We survived the holidays, now we need some comfort at the end of the day- or if you are exceptionally optimistic- first thing in the morning.  You see, a hot toddy is not just for the after dinner / before bed experience.  Some even are just as refreshing and calming for a breakfast slurp.  Not that I’m advocating morning drinking!  Far from… But at the end of the day- where night turns to day- I’m looking towards drinks that have a robust nature to them. Tea based is a good place to start and no other tea works for morning than a rambunctious Lapsang Souchong tea from China.  This tea is heavily smoked and takes to botanical gin with a ‘how do you do’ that is reminiscent of Singapore before the Opium Wars.  It’s served as it should be in a perfectly formed, hand-made, porcelain teacup.  A simple sprig of chive rests gently over the steaming liquid- bitter chive against smoky tea.  The vivid green color against the brownish steaming tea. Quite elegant and this drink is absolutely perfect as a breakfast sipper during brunch.  And served in a teacup, no one knows your business- it’s steaming, right? Of course, I used the Breakfast Gin from FEW Spirits

END OF CANNABIS PROHIBITION

INDUSTRY EXPERTS & INFLUENCERS SHARE THOUGHTS ON THE END OF CANNABIS PROHIBITION IN CALIFORNIA

Weed

Californians did it. It’s the end of a 100 plus year cannabis prohibition in California. Two thousand eighteen is off to an exciting start. What exactly does this mean? You no longer need a medical recommendation to purchase cannabis from a dispensary. However, you’ll need your ID proving that you’re 21 years or older to obtain cannabis recreationally. How much are you allowed to buy? There’s a daily limit of one ounce of flower and eight grams of concentrates. Edibles are capped at 100 milligrams of THC per item. Welcome to the world of legal weed. In honor of the occasion, MAGNETIC spoke with everyone from LA-based musicians Dynasty Electrik to MagicalButter.com   executive director Chris Whitener to share their insight about this momentous occasion. Here’s what they had to say!

National Bloody Mary Day

Epic Smoked Bloody Marys For Your New Year’s Brunch

Epic Smoked Bloody Marys For Your New Year’s Brunch

 

January 1 is officially National Bloody Mary Day. The timing couldn’t be better. Even if you don’t require a “hair of the dog” hangover cure after New Year’s Eve revelries, you now have an unimpeachable excuse to quaff one of America’s most beloved brunch cocktails. Though the origins of this restorative beverage aren’t clear, food historians often credit a professional bartender, Fernand Petiot, with combining equal parts of vodka and tomato juice in the 1920s when he worked at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris. He later claimed he spent years tweaking the recipe until it resembled the classic drink we’ve come to know and love. The cocktail was said to be a favorite of Ernest Hemingway who was trying to hide his matitudinal alcohol consumption from his wife.

The Cannador

The Solution to Humidity and Cannabis

Problem-Lack of humidity Solution: The Cannador

It’s hard to live in an apartment without modern heating systems that provide humidity along with the warm air. Such is the case again this year, and with the recent cold snap, the air inside this apartment is tinder dry- sparks fly from the fingertips without much hesitation.  The same holds true for the fragile medicine, better known as cannabis that should be treated as kindly as fine (read: expensive) wine. Humidity and temperature seem to aid in the aging of this very expensive healing material and not everyone has the ability to run out to the store and buy what is fresh. Those of us on the East Coast have to jump through hoops with regards to our medical cannabis- it’s really pricey so it’s probably best not to wait until it turns to dust before re-hydrating it. Mold can form and all bad things can happen from there on. Remember in High School when you hid that bag of weed from your mom? She was still making your bed back then and you were worried she’d find your stash and rat you out to your dad.. So you stored that pathetic mass of brown leafy material in a plastic bag until you smoked it all, but it went all moldy first. What was that nasty “basement” smell and taste? Storing your cannabis in a plastic bag is just bad for it. There is no reason for you to store this costly material in a plastic sandwich bag, so stop this practice- RIGHT NOW. You should be using a glass jar. Not just any glass jar, but one from the Cannador. But first, what is a Cannador? This is a craft product that will preserve and protect your herbs. Whatever you’ve been doing before is fine, and this method has worked for you pretty well, or at least well enough until now. The Cannador is the very best humidor for cannabis that money can buy. A Cannador is what you should be using now. You don’t have to spend all your kid’s soccer money on the high end, six jar and storage version (but-it wouldn’t hurt..) You can buy a simple two jar version. When you are ready to spend your money, go all out and purchase that wonderful object of your desire. The six jar, humidor with its nifty internal storage humidor (pictured above)
