Let’s face it — if you consume cannabis on the regular, you’re probably in a fairly comfortable financial position. After all, it’s not cheap to keep a constant supply of flower, concentrates, or edibles in your home, and depending on where you live, the taxes you pay on each purchase can leave a serious dent in your pocketbook.

While your weed budget may seem exorbitant to some, at least you likely aren’t spending at the rate of Mars Volta frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala who used to purchase and consume about $1,000 worth of pot per week. Although he’s since quit for personal reasons, there’s no denying that many out there have the means to dedicate a lot of money toward their cannabis.

If that sounds like you, then you might be interested to know that an extremely pricey vape has recently hit the market. Called the Double Barrel Diamond, it’s a true sight to behold and allows for some pretty sweet ways to get you elevated.

The Double Barrel Diamond Lets You Blaze with Bling

Recently named one of Entrepreneur’s 100 Cannabis Leaders 2018 in the mag’s October issue, Double Barrel has teamed up with L.A. jeweler Gerard Alexander of Saint Jewels to create the Double Barrel Diamond, the world’s first $100,000 vaporizer. Crafted with 180 grams of solid white gold and studded with over 3,000 21-carat diamonds, each device is made to order.

“Double Barrel presented me with an opportunity I never saw coming to artfully execute a high-voltage accessory for the cannabis consumer who has it all,” said jeweler Gerard Alexander.

The Double Barrel Diamond isn’t like any other vape you’ve tried, and that’s not just because it’s covered in diamonds and gold. That’s not even the coolest part. Designed with two chambers that instantly show you how it got its name, this vape lets you smoke two cartridges at once.

It might sound superfluous, but there’s a real benefit to this double chamber construction. Cannabis lovers who have used this type of style before note that they’re able to play around with various cartridges, giving them the ability to blend flavors and effects for a more personalized experience.

Double Barrel Diamond: Smoking like the Rich and Famous

HBO fans may remember seeing Russell Brand’s character Lance Klians use the Double Barrel on the show Ballers, thus putting this piece of art into the mainstream spotlight. While this fancy version is made to order, and rumor has it that only two are even currently in existence.

However, if you have the means and you want to make a statement about your cannabis use, you just might want to pony up the $100K and see what all the fuss is about. The luxury cannabis market is growing quickly, and although many of us may never have access to that much money at once across our entire lifetime, cannabis users who are in the spotlight might want to give it a go.

Can’t you just imagine stars walking the red carpet with the Double Barrel Diamond on their hand? With two rings that allow you to wear it like a pair of brass knuckles, it could easily become the latest accessory among those who aren’t afraid to flaunt their love for weed.

Surey, a diamond-encrusted vape might seem like a little much to most, but if you have money to burn, you can at least make a statement with the Double Barrel Diamond.

And if you don’t, there’s always the original Double Barrel device, which you can pick up for around $100.

Psychonauts Celebrate Magic Mushroom Day

Published

on

Magic Mushrooms Day

September 20 is Magic Mushroom Day. Similarly to stoners celebrating 4/20 and 7/10, and LSD enthusiasts celebrating 4/19, entheogenic communities around the world celebrate the psychedelic renaissance on 9/20.

The concept was coined in 2015 when Nicholas Reville, a mushroom advocate from Providence, Rhode Island, declared September 20 as an “educational day of action,” apparently citing the spirit of 4/20 as an opportunity to talk about psilocybin reform, regulations and, of course, rejoice in the magic of psychedelics.

“9/20 was chosen because it is at the beginning of autumn, when mushrooms are most plentiful; because it is close to the equinox, representing a change in direction; and because it echoes 4/20 and the successful movement for marijuana decriminalization and legalization,” said Reville in an interview with Rolling Stone.

Magic Mushrooms: The Next “Green” Wave?

Interest around the benefits and effects of psilocybin, the main active ingredient in magic mushrooms, has been steadily growing over the last number of years, with legalization closely following.

In May 2019, Denver became the first city to decriminalize psilocybin. Oakland soon followed with its own law in June that same year, decriminalizing plant and fungi psychedelics.

At the last election in 2020, Oregon became the first state to legalize psilocybin with Measure 109 for mental health treatment in supervised settings.

At the same time, the District of Columbia decriminalize the use of magic mushrooms and other psychedelic substances with the passage of Initiative 81.

Power & Collaboration Are the Name of the Game at WEIC Women’s Leadership Summit

Power & Collaboration WEiC

In 2019 women held 37% of senior level positions in cannabis. Alarmingly, less than 8% of CEOs are women and only 38% of all positions in cannabis are held by women. This statistic and much more will be the topic of discussion at the Women Empowered In Cannabis (WEIC) Power & Collaboration summit on July 21, 2021, from 10 am PST – 5 pm PST.

The one day summit is WEIC’s first virtual Women’s Leadership Summit and will address the rapid loss of female leadership and power in cannabis and question how the community can address and stop this trend.

“We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to build an industry from the ground up that is inclusive, diverse and just, and yet women are losing ground at a distressing rate,” said Kyra Reed, WEIC founder and CEO. “The summit is designed to help women elevate our voices and establish real power in the global cannabis market.”

Nancy Whiteman, Wana Brands CEO

“Pursuing inclusion and diversity in business is not just a way to encourage goodwill. It is a strategic business decision that can literally make or break a company. This is not a wishful, feel-good attempt to make news or have people speak well of the industry. It is truly how we survive — and maybe how we change the world a little bit.” – Nancy Whiteman, Wana Brands CEO

Mara Gordon – Founder Aunt Zelda’s

Chrystal Ortiz – CEO/Founder Herb & Market Humboldt, High Water Farm

“It is well known that women are more than good enough to run companies. We need to recognize if we are good enough to do the work, we are good enough to own the work. We need to empower one another, create financial opportunities and invest in each other to become owners and make sure there are women in the C-suite of the companies we work with. This is why.” – Chrystal Ortiz – CEO/Founder Herb & Market Humboldt, High Water Farm
