Have you toyed with the thought of adding cannabis to your cocktails? Now that many states in the U.S. have legalized some form of marijuana use, the conversation about mixing alcohol and cannabis is more important than ever.
Before you mix up a cannabis-infused cocktail, there are a few things you should know. This is not a matter that should be taken as casually as the average cocktailor smoking a joint.
Editor’s Note: I first came across the MagicalButter (MB2e) machine at a party I attended several years ago. There was a novice cook turning out professional results that only a trained chef could perform, at least from a culinary perspective. Of course, the final results were infused with certain botanicals, which at that time were no more than whispers under hushed tones. The MagicalButter machine, standing stoic on the counter, whirred away nearly silently. And, that light show! What a marvelous experience. How delightful to deliciously melt away the afternoon while admiring the swirling lights, so lovely! And the end results? Always perfect.
A rather fat hand rolled-cone stuffed with the California Bud Company strain named Cookies was just passed my way with a knowing smile. I knew at that very moment, encapsulated in that slowly burning cherry at the tip, was more than just mere enlightenment. Inside this perfectly crafted cone contained their namesake product, the most wonderful cannabis, hand-tended and sunshine grown. It was, quite simply; “Cultivated Happiness.” There was deep love and his company’s cannabis grower’s passion spilling out of the spiraling smoke. This experience was way more than just another perfect Cali-type moment in time. Buckets of bountiful California sunshine came spilling out of each hit of the joint and the timeless Beatles’ song, Blue Jay Way reverberated throughout my sun-drenched memory of the day. A curiously sweet aroma of freshly crushed California coastal grown herbs: rosemary, thyme and sage, enveloped our heads as we gazed out over that endless horizon, purple and red and yellow in color. Sometimes the sky looks like it is even on fire, it’s that kind of place. Los Angeles’ sprawl spilled out over hundreds of square miles under this well-traveled road.

The Hemponair is not your typical New York City based entrepreneur, far from really. Jason Lazar is his name and he is certainly a real New Yorker, born and raised. So he knows a bit more than most about the who’s, what’s and why’s of NYC. He works with a substance known as Cannabis. Jason, through his online publication aptly named The Hemponair, offers splashes of up to the minute information in the online Cannabis space. He offers alternatives to the typical media blasts and gets directly to the point of what is the very best way to help spend your hard earned bitcoins and dollars. In a city as massive and as ‘taxing’ as New York City, doesn’t it make sense for the well-heeled gentleman to have an ultra-lux guide all to themselves?
Be still my heart. Being far from wildly successful as an entrepreneur or sitting in that high paid “Catbird Seat” I can understand what it’s like to yen for the very best. Maybe it’s a failing of mine, but I’ve always possessed a keen appreciation for the very best things in life. These can be wildly expensive, so I may have to forgo them until I can afford it, or not at all!

The new incense that just swirled past your nose, in and around the Los Angeles area is not the usual throat stinging snap of burning weeds. instead it’s the lush and intellectually stimulating aromatics of freshly crushed fine herbs and exotic flowers and spices. Just coming into nasal view are bursts of juicy and sweet tropical fruits, tangles of caramelized nut meats and candied orange zests dancing elegantly up your nose. What these micro-gusts of quickly dissipating memory stimulating fragrances represent is the new way to enjoy cannabis. This modern technique is delivered ‘sans flame’ and completely without the often-acerbic smoke that, quite frankly, doesn’t appeal to everyone. There is a slight vapor cloud, but that dissipates very quickly into the atmosphere. The Bloom Brandhas created deep scientific methodology to harness a safe and non-confrontational application of their proprietary, pure cannabis oil within your daily wellness routine. The Bloom Brand cannabis oil cartridges, micro-cannabis pens and fully-activated, pure extracted oils are market changing products. And not only because of their purity and lush aromatics. They utilize solely 100% Californian grown cannabis in their production, produced by their own methodology and high value production techniques. Each one is carefully designed to fully capture their easy-going, youthful and healthy Californian lifestyle.
