Dabtender Hailee grew up in the cannabis industry where the phrase 420 girl was a common term. While some kids worked at the family restaurant, Hailee and her family organized 420 friendly events. Here are a few of her favorite wardrobe choices.

Whether you’re chowing down on some scrumptious food after work, or getting comfy at home, you can pull off the 420 girl look with ease and style!

You’re definitely a 420 kinda girl when you accessorize with a burrito! Keep it casual with a simple hoodie + some cute accessories, like my choker or reading glasses, to doll it up. Complete the look with a big, fat burrito! 🥰

Nothing completes a long day working at the dispensary like a big ole fat burrito! Here I am dining al fresco, embracing my inner 420 ganja girl in a simple hoodie and choker.

High socks, shorts, or a dress, and pig tails are a STAPLE for my 420 friendly look. High socks instantly bring a silliness, but still a respectable aspect to your look. It shows you are carefree and bubbly! Here are a couple different looks with the high socks + shorts.

These adorable PJs are from Charlotte Russe and have a bell bottom pant with a slit going up the leg. It’s a total stoner girl hippy vibe outfit! I plan on looking for more pajama outfits for my work-form-home days!

Fastest Way to Pass a Drug Test for THC

fastest way to pass a drug test (2)

Cannabis Educator & Advocate April Olshavsky shares her advice on the fastest way to pass a drug test for THC.

Q: I took a fat dab last night, and now I’m freaking out because I have a pre-employment test tomorrow. What is the fastest way to pass a drug test for THC?

A: So, you took a dab to celebrate your possible new job, and now you’re afraid that dab is going to haunt you. Urine tests can detect THC 1-5 days after use for the occasional user. Yikes! You like to live dangerously, huh? While smoking marijuana prior to an employment test isn’t the greatest idea, it’s not the end of the world. Sit back and relax while I answer some popular drug-testing questions. And for the love of all that is green, please keep your hands off the weed for now.

Drink Lots of Fluids

The tried-and-true strategy of passing a urine drug test is to increase fluid intake to dilute the concentration of the drug. A few hours prior to the test, wash your bladder with large amounts of fluids. If you think you drank enough liquid, you didn’t. Keep guzzling. If at all possible, schedule your test for later in the day, as metabolites tend to build up during sleep.

Q: Can vitamins help you pass a drug test?

A: Yes and no. B Vitamins help you pass a drug test by temporarily colorizing your urine. Because you’re flooding your bladder with liquids, your urine will be clear which presents a red flag to the lab. I have heard of samples being rejected for being too watery. To prevent clear urine, you can load up on a high-milligram B-2 found in B-complex multivitamins. However, there is no evidence suggesting that vitamin C can help pass a drug test, contrary to popular belief. In fact, large amounts of vitamin C may even show up on the drug test, signaling yet another red flag indicating you tried to influence your test.

Q: Can diuretics help me pass a urine test fast?

A: Diuretics can help increase your fluid output, therefore, stimulating urination. Natural diuretics include coffee, tea, cranberry juice and over-the-counter PMS pills for water retention.

Q: I heard about detox kits you can buy at head shops. Can this help me pass a drug test fast?

A: Detox kits for THC may include herbal capsules or toxin powder that you mix with drinks. These products work by stimulating the bowels and organs to carry out the toxins, or in this case, THC.

You can also make your own detox formula from home. Various methods I’ve heard people use to pass a drug test fast include charcoal, jello gelatin mix, and bentonite clay (volcanic ash). I make no promises that these will work, so proceed at your own risk.

Q: What about using a friend’s urine?

You can substitute your friend’s urine by sneaking it in, sure. Many people have tried and succeeded at this. But, let me ask you this. How important are ethics to you? Sneaking clean urine into a pre-employment drug test really isn’t that hard, but tampering with employment drug results is unethical. Before day #1 on the job, you’ve already tampered with employer policies and procedures and have recruited your friend to help. If ethics don’t bother you, what about the sheer embarrassment you’ll experience if you get caught toting around your friend’s pee? And how trustworthy is your friend that you can you be certain their urine is clean?

Q: Is there something I can add to my urine to trick the test?

A: There are several products on the market designed to “spike” your sample with a chemical. You can occasionally find them on High Times advertisements. However, some labs go the extra mile and can chemically test for foreign chemicals. In an emergency, you may be able to trick a drug test with a few drops of Visine, bleach, or salt.

Q: Will detoxing from weed cause me to feel any negative effects?

A: If you’re a regular partaker, then yes. For some people, the detox process is a breeze. For heavy use, the marijuana detox may lead to some annoying side effects, some of which include:

-Irritability

-Headaches

-Depression

-Anxiety

-Decrease in appetite

-Insomnia

6 Tips for the Best Dispensary Shopping Experience

Tips for a great dispensary shopping experience

Cannabis Educator April Olshavsky shares her tips on how to make your next dispensary shopping experience perfect.

Q: When I visit the dispensary, I just get overwhelmed; too many items to choose. How can I actually have good dispensary shopping experience?

A: I feel you. I find the shopping part to be the most interesting part; loading up on new customer deals and going on Weedmaps to preuse the latest brands to decide what to try and what to avoid. But once in front of the budtender, the choices seem endless. Unless you’re one of those know-it-all stoners who can recite every cannabis strain, you can get discouraged fast, and you buy the first cheap gram you see. But if there is something that you would really enjoy, it may be overlooked because it’s a drag buying something that you really don’t need. (As in buying a bag full of medicated brownies, let’s not mention that.) But I want to think of dispensary shopping as the ultimate form of diy self-care experience that helps you live your best life and avoid impulsive purchases of products you don’t need. I also spoke with a few dispensary budtenders who shared some words of wisdom:

How to Buy From a Dispensary

Always Bring Your Valid ID

Whether you’re a recreational or a medical patient, you need to show your ID at the check-in counter. It does not matter if you look 89 years old, you will still need to show your valid ID at the door. Notice I said valid ID– don’t even think about trying to use an expired ID.

Bring Plenty of Cash

Cannabis purchases are done with cash. Some dispensaries will have an ATM on site, but it is not a guarantee. Plus, those our-of-network ATM charges can really stack up. You will want to bring a minimum of $20-200 for your first visit.

Shop for Cannabis When You Know How Want to Feel

Visit the dispensary when you know what you want. You may not know the difference between indica, sativa, or dabs, but you probably know how you want to feel. Whether you’re trying to alleviate a medical condition, or just looking to boost your mood, it will help to communicate your needs. A person wanting to ease a sore knee may not need the same product as the dude looking to get his smoke on. But maybe they do. Talk it out with your budtender.

Be Prepared to Wait Your Turn

Buying weed is not the same as buying a bottle of vodka at the liquor store. State regulations are extremely strict on the amount of steps required to complete a purchase. Plus, privacy is your right as a medical marijuana patient. You may be asked to wait in the lobby or in your vehicle until your turn. Depending on the time of day, you may be asked to wait anywhere from one minute to an hour or more on special event days.

Invite the Budtender to Help

Create a non-intimating shopping exchange by building rapport between yourself and the budtender. Think of your budtender as your private investigator. Share with them all the hopes and dreams you have for your cannabis. Like any purveyor of goods, the dispensary agents are there to help you, but they can’t read your mind. The person behind the counter will listen to the customer and immediately begin to ask questions to help guide newbies and connoisseurs alike. The budtender knows the ins and outs of the products and can help match you with the effect you are looking to achieve. There are several questions you may want to consider before visiting a dispensary for the first time. Do you want to avoid the “high” feeling? Are you looking to relieve certain symptoms? Are you aware of the proper dosage for edibles? Knowing how you want to take cannabis is important, too. While shopping at a dispensary, you may encounter any number of items from infused gummies to medicated popcorn, to oil tinctures and concentrates, capsules, and dozens of strains. It is also important to know if you want something to help with sleep, or if you want something to get your through the day. You may not want to start your workday with a CBD Melatonin tincture. Can you guess why? That’s right, CBD, a natural relaxant, when combined with Melatonin, will send you straight to bed and I’m going to guess your boss doesn’t want to pay you to sleep.

Try not to get hung up on stains too much. Over the years, strains have changed from what they were decades ago. Strains today contain high percentages of cannabinoids and can have adverse effects if you are not careful. The quality dispensary agent knows all the important traits of any given product inside the store.

Do Not Get Pressured Into Making a Purchase

Not every dispensary experience is perfect. If you feel nervous, intimidated, or pressured, it is okay to leave. Be nice to the staff, and thank them for their time. There are other dispensaries with different brands, products, and approaches.

U.S. Weed Legalization – Freedom to Choose

Legalize Weed Facts

 In one decade between 2001-2010, the U.S. police carried through 8 million marijuana-related arrests. That means every 37 seconds, a person was arrested for weed. Yet, the enforcement of these weed laws costs the U.S. nearly $4 billion, yearly, according to ACLU reports. So, what does this mean for the legalization of weed in the USA? Less money spent on over-policing and fewer individuals wrapped up in the criminal justice system.

The Demand For Weed Legalization Jobs is Growing

By the year 2022, the marijuana industry is forecasted to create over 330,000 jobs and will surpass the US steel and iron mill industries. The industry is actively looking for experts in various fields from accounting to compliance, customer service, sales, technology, and more. Plus, there are new jobs in categories that never existed prior to weed legalization, such as dispensary manager, budtender, cultivation director, trimmer, extractor, and more. Though many of these weed jobs require no special certification, it doesn’t hurt to complete a certificate program at someplace such as Herbal Risings or Oaksterdam to set yourself apart from the average joe.

Prohibition Impedes on Individual Freedom – Legalization of Weed USA

While the War on Drugs did very little to reduce the use of marijuana, what it accomplished was an unwarranted government intrusion of our freedom of choice. The reasons someone might use marijuana may vary from medical, recreational, to even spiritual. Marijuana is no more harmful to the body than alcohol or tobacco, which are heavily regulated by the federal government.
