Exploded Pipe COURTESY: MASON PALMER
There was the rub, I still love a good old-fashioned pocket pipe to smoke my cannabis through. It’s part of my culture. As many as I own, there is still room for more if they are simple in design and in function. I still enjoy the slow motion activity of grinding a fancy, outdoor grown nug in my ancient hand grinder and then starting a sesh with this nice bowl that graces the ancient tin-topped table. That first hit into my lungs encapsulates the experience of why I like to smoke the finest cannabis in the world. I’m positive that you would love to know about all the marvelous strains I’ve been enjoying, if I could only remember them all. One I do remember is from Casa Humboldt. This strain is known as Pineapple Upside Down Cake. And when you open the jar, the aromatics of caramelized pineapple rush up to great your nostrils, thrusting themselves deeply inside your memory of what this strain reminds you of. Was it the rum syrup drizzled over the top of the cake? Each bite bursting in small rewards from the sides of your mouth? This strain has the uncanny ability to bring the aromatics of a well-baked Pineapple Upside Down Cake into the periphery of an ultra-high-end, hand- crafted smoking device. You need to find one of these and master it.
