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.

In a move that has shocked through the streetwear community, Supreme has closed its original space on Lafayette after 25 years of business.

Back in February, the brand announced that its famous Lafayette location would be under renovation. Now, due to the unforeseen closure, the 190 Bowery location in Manhattan will now be the brand’s main location in the Big Apple.

Off the Record, It’s National Expungement Week

Published

on

National Expungement Week

“Would you like to know an absolutely crazy fact? There are 77 million people in the United States who have a criminal record.” This crazy statistic that instantly grabs your attention is how Seth Rogen opens the PSA for National Expungement Week.

Rogen also asks, “What does ‘expungement’ mean?” ‘On the record’, expungement means, clearing or sealing the record of a person’s prior arrest, criminal charges or conviction.

That’s a possibility for some of the 77 million people with criminal records — a large amount being minor offenses — which make up nearly a quarter of the population of the United States. Having a criminal record seriously impedes the ability to live for millions of people. It restricts access to jobs, housing, education, and the right to vote.

National Expungement Week aka N.E.W. is the initiative of Cage-Free Repair (the non-profit section of Cage-Free Cannabis) Cannabis and Equity First Alliance.

Cage-Free Cannabis is rooted in three kinds of justice, from reparative, to economic and environmental. Equity First Alliance works to bring reparative justice to, and be a voice for, those who have been most harmed by the War on Drugs.

The initiative will see over 40 events held in 30 cities, which will host workshops, allowing people to meet with lawyers and experts who can help them clear records, from September 21-28.

Among other company’s and businesses, N.E.W. is supported by Houseplant, the cannabis company launched by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, in the hopes of exposing the social injustices associated with cannabis convictions.

With 18 events in 15 cities that helped nearly 300 people begin the process of changing their records, the inaugural National Expungement Week in 2018 was clearly a success and led to the initiative returning this year.

If you’re interested in clearing your record or helping someone else do the same, you can find further information — including the dates and details of specific events — on the official site of N.E.W.; offtherecord.us.

Internet-à-Porter: 5 Wearable Technology Products for Smarter Fashion

Published

We live an era where people have a personal computer in their pocket or on their wrist. These devices also have almost instant and interrupted access to the Internet and the global hive mind. That tech continues to get smaller, smarter and faster with each generation. So much, the next logical step for everyday technology is to blend it with everyday apparel — in what is known as wearable technology, or wearables.

From Saint Laurent to Levi’s, these 5 wearables will make you think less about Google Glass and more Internet-à-porter.

Jacquard x Saint Laurent

Saint Laurent is a French luxury fashion house (founded by its namesake Yves Saint Laurent), known for its aspirational high-end fashion, handbags and fragrances. And Jacquard by Google transforms clothing, making for an entirely new take on wearables. Jacquard technology is woven into the fabric of your clothes and accessories, such as the Jacquard x Saint Laurent Cit-e Backpack.

From taking photos, to playing music and even navigation, you can control your smartphone from touch gestures made possible by the Jacquard tech integrated into the left strap of the backpack. The backpack functions like the Apple Watch, with the interactive features built into what is an everyday item.

Jacquard x Levi’s

Founded in 1853, Levi’s has a long history of fashionable, yet innovative and functional clothing. The obvious next step was a collab with Jacquard by Google. That resulted in the Levi’s Commuter Trucker Jacket, the first product to be offered by Jacquard, which upgrades one of Levi’s most iconic products with user-friendly tech.

With features like articulated shoulders, reflectors sewn in, and a dropped hem at the tail, the denim jacket was specifically designed for urban cyclists. The Jacquard tech takes the features even further, with the functions woven right into the sleeve of the Commuter Trucker Jacket. This allows riders get directions, control their media, and stay connected while on the bike and on the go.

Bose Audio Sunglasses

Remember caps with headphones attached? It’s time to forget that kind of novelty. That won’t be difficult after using the Bose Audio Sunglasses. The sunglasses have built-in speakers (it is Bose after all) to make for an immersive audio experience. The thing is, the frames still look like sunglasses, only with the state-of-the-art audio tech embedded in a classic design.

The wearer hears rich, immersive audio, while everyone else hears almost nothing. That’s thanks to the exclusive miniaturized Bose speakers hidden in the temples. The frames aren’t just a comfortable way to listen to music or a podcast, with the company having also developed Bose AR, the first-of-its-kind audio augmented reality platform to complement the tech. That lets users experience more by augmenting the way you experience the world with content for ears instead of eyes (enhancing certain apps like Coachella’s).

Apple Watch

It’s easy to forget that it was one of the first wearables available to the public (and also the best-selling) when it was released in April 2015. So, while the Apple Watch isn’t new tech, it definitely is cutting-edge tech, as the recently announced Apple Watch Series 5 is definitely that.

The Apple Watch is more than an interface between your smartphone and the user. The smartwatch has all the features of your iPhone but incorporates dedicated fitness tracking and health-oriented capabilities. The new Series 5 can even keep an eye on your heart, checking your heart rate throughout the day, notifying you if it appears too high or too low. Being customizable in the way of a case and strap (available from Apple Watch Studio), the Apple Watch isn’t just user-friendly but also a statement.

Oura Ring

Like a watch, a ring isn’t for everyone. But unlike a watch, a ring is less intrusive, especially when it can still track your sleep and your fitness. That kind of smart ring is available from Oura and is one of the world’s smallest wearables, if not the most advanced.

The Oura packs a lot of features in such a small package. It allows you to gain accurate and usable information of your sleeping patterns, your heart rate, body temperature trends, repository rate, even the steps taken and the calories burned. Not just that, but Oura can measure blood volume (directly from the palmar arteries of the finger) and the amplitude and intensity of body movements (through a 3D accelerometer and gyroscope). Put simply, it’s like an activity tracker but in a more discreet package.
