I’m a massive fan of Papa & Barkley, the Eureka, California based manufacturer of ultra-high quality cannabis and hemp products. A couple of years ago, I visited their manufacturing facility and was let into a little secret. There are very few producers of cannabis products in California who are as diversified in their offerings. Sure there are other vertically integrated companies, but no one has as much experience and fortitude as Papa & Barkley. And the secret? They perform their craft with healing in mind, not just metrics. This is why Papa & Barkley are in it for the long haul, to help people live better lives through their attention to detail and passion for the plant. Thank you. WB.
While some people recovering from substance abuse do best with a zero-tolerance policy regarding any intoxicant, others are able to safely use cannabis. I’m one such person, and my life is all the better for it.
“If you smoke a joint in public, everyone knows your business,” Bobrow says. “But not if you are sipping a gorgeous Vietnamese Iced Coffee with THC-infused condensed milk on a steaming hot day, watching your coconut water ice melt slowly into the unctuous concoction. Do I have you here?” While the world has become a friendlier place towards cannabis users since Giuliani was mayor, yes, he did have me there.
