“For a ‘good’ product, that’s what you buy when you have a big party and you want to share with all your friends. The ‘better’ product is what you buy when you’ve got just a couple of couples coming over, and they’re your special friends. And ‘best’ is maybe for a home alone experience.” with friends and going to bars.” Hornev says it isn’t just about organizing the stores’ retail floors — the hope is that it will be used by other retailers. “The products that we ship out that we’re sending other retailers are also associated with those Needs States, and are in those colors as well. So we’re not just driving that within our store, but out in the greater marketplace,” she says. “I think it plays back to that approachability of the brand. There’s a lot of intimidation when you walk into some of these stores, and there are thousands of products, and it feels like they’re staring at you. So how do we kind of break some of those barriers for consumers and especially new consumers? I think there’s a lot of people out there right now that are looking to maybe try and see this thing that they’ve heard about, you know? And so let’s help them. Let’s not make it something that’s hard or difficult or intimidating. We’ve got enough of that in the world.”

She adds, “Our tagline is ‘cannabis for humanity,’ and that’s something that I think is powerful.” Meanwhile, High Times, the longstanding cannabis magazine, is preparing to open a chain of retail stores in Michigan this year, where it will get into the business of selling cannabis, too. CEO Peter Horvath, who joined the company in May with a background at big brands like Victoria’s Secret, American Eagle, and DSW, says that the idea is to categorize products in three tiers: color-coded in white, red, and black — representing good, better, and best price points. Horvath says he imagines the retail floors arranged like a marketplace like the Eataly chain. Think “a massive food hall that’s organized by category — here’s the fish section, here’s the bakery, here’s the bread section, here’s the macaron section, here’s the cake section — so basically taking that concept to cannabis,” he says. The good, better, and best price points

would each have their own shelves, with products arranged from sativas, known for their energizing effects, on one side, to indicas, known for sedative properties, on the other. “What we find is consumers like this way of thinking,” he says. “For a ‘good’ product, that’s what you buy when you have a big party and you want to share with all your friends. The ‘better’ product is what you buy when you’ve got just a couple of couples coming over, and they’re your special friends. And ‘best’ is maybe for a home alone experience.” He adds, “We think these same things are tried and true, proven in other industries, and now proven in this industry. And we’re ready to bring that to consumers in Michigan.” Meanwhile, Michigan-based cannabis chain Cloud Cannabis Co. is taking a more high-tech approach. The company partnered with developer StrainBrain to launch Cloud Budtender AI, a computer program that uses artificial intelligence to help link customers with products based on their preferences. According to the company, the StrainBrain engine uses millions of data points drawn from hundreds of thousands of user reviews. Jim Anstey, chief marketing officer of Cloud Cannabis, agrees that the sheer number of strains can be daunting. “Let’s face it, strains — there are hundreds of them, if not thousands of them,” he says. “I’ve worked in the cannabis industry for five years, and I still don’t regard myself as a strain expert. It’s just really difficult

to navigate that well.” Cloud Budtender is accessible via a tablet on the Cloud Cannabis retail floors, but also on the company’s website so customers can use it at home. Anstey guides us through it. First you pick your store, so the program has access to its inventory. It then asks for which desired effects you’re looking for. We pick “calm” and “creativity.” Next you can pick flavors — we choose “citrus” and “flowery” — and finally the desired strength. We nudge a sliding bar toward “strong.” “Ahh, the wake-and-bake special,” Anstey says. The program suggests Clemenberry, Gelato Punch, and Cherry Punch strains, ranked by how closely the program thinks each strain matches our preferences. Beyond helping customers find products, Anstey says he hopes the program can help to educate customers and destigmatize the experience of buying cannabis. “The whole buying experience is very stigmatized and also very confusing,” he says. “I think the stigma of cannabis being illegal for so long — you don’t know what the products are, the different formats and different dosages. You don’t know if you should have flower or vapes or edibles, and what they’re going to do is different. And so education is such an important part of it. For us, I think de-stigmatizing, and making people feel at home and welcome there and having good experience, is certainly important, but also I think demystifying cannabis.” u

MAKING SENSE OF POT It’s all about our sensual delights when it comes to weed BY L A R RY GA B R I E L

O

ur five basic senses are the main reason we know anything about anything. Hearing, seeing, tasting, feeling, and smelling are the conduits of most information to our brains. Those are also the main ways we experience cannabinoids from marijuana. 24

METRO TIMES 2021 USER’S GUIDE

Let’s start off with hearing. One’s ability to hear seems the sense least affected by marijuana use, as discussed on the many websites devoted to how marijuana affects our senses. But the processing of what you hear can be huge. Take music, for instance. One of the main things |

metrotimes.com


marijuana seems to affect is our enjoyment of music — regardless of the kind of music that you enjoy. This is great for tapping deeply into our natural proclivities. Part of the reason is probably that music can come close to doing the same things as marijuana on its own. Music was considered magic by early cultures. Over the years, music has been analyzed for different scales or chords that were thought to evoke various human emotions. The drumbeat mirrors the heartbeat, and drumbeats have been used to synchronize many human activities, from rowers and even propelling armies on the march. Put a drumbeat around folks using metrotimes.com |

marijuana and there is a natural affiliation. Isn’t the drum circle a staple of large gatherings where marijuana is used and celebrated? Hello, Hash Bash. Music and marijuana have a natural affinity for each other, and each of them seem to affect humans in similar ways. Marijuana enhances our sense of taste, too. First of all, we get the munchies. Getting munchies is not a function of taste buds, although seeing some lovely, tempting food can get your salivary juices flowing. Not only do you want to eat —if you fancy a particular dish, it can taste heavenly if eaten while high. Again this taps into something that is basically human — we have to eat METRO TIMES 2021 USER’S GUIDE

25


The things we consume visually can become incredibly evocative — whether that be sunrises, geographic vistas, movies, paintings, sculptures, photographs, or beautiful people. smell of marijuana itself engenders strong reactions. Marijuana users love it, and marijuana prohibitionists hate it. Until recently, the focus among users was eliminating the pungent odors of marijuana so that you wouldn’t get caught. Even with legalization, new laws include provisions about protecting non-users from the smell. As far as the ability to smell, there was actually a study done in France that found that marijuana enhances the sense of smell. Also, there is a world of terpenes and their application akin to aromatherapy that has emerged around marijuana. The flowers can smell like pine, pepper, lemon, diesel, earthy, lavender, and many other scents due to the aromatic oils they contain. Terpenes have applications in medical use,

to live. One of the main ways of ingesting marijuana is through edibles. Food is a delight — you get pleasure from looking at it, smelling it, anticipating it, and, ultimately, tasting it. There is lab research that indicates food tastes better when you’re high and that stoned people are attracted to foods high in sugar and fat. It’s not going to make you like things that you don’t like to eat, but for the stuff that you do like — wow! Smell and taste are related. Nothing gets you excited about eating a favorite food more than the smell of it wafting through the air. Still, beyond food there is a universe of smell affected by marijuana. First of all, the

and they can also be paired with foods to enhance smells and taste in edibles. When it comes to our eyesight, marijuana is famously useful for reducing pressure on the eyes of glaucoma patients. It also makes the famous red eyes of folks who’ve recently smoked some, and it dilates your pupils (they get bigger and let in more light). This may also explain the experience of improved night vision and brighter colors some users report. The things we consume visually can become incredibly evocative — whether that be sunrises, geographic vistas, movies, paintings, sculptures, photographs, or beautiful people. Sometimes you can look at someone’s face and read the tiny little lines that you never even noticed were there before, or get lost in a fractal program throwing ever evolving images at you. And then there’s touch. What we experience through our skin is affected in different ways when we use marijuana. The substance might lessen the pain of a burn by changing your thinking about it. Or it might make certain areas of skin

super sensitive to touch. And when it comes to erogenous zones, sexual touching can be off the charts. There are many reports of enhanced orgasms among marijuana users. You can explore this aspect at your leisure. All of this doesn’t even try to assess the effect of marijuana on our senses of time and space. It’s hard enough to have a go at the senses we think we understand. This is really about what happens when our brains process cannabinoids, and we only know a few of the dozens that are in marijuana. One last point: Not everyone who uses marijuana will have the same experience as others or the same experience every time you use it. There may be different experiences with different kinds of marijuana or method of ingesting it, not to mention your mood and environment at the time. Some of these described effects are what the anti-marijuana crowd think of as bad or toxic. That said, there is a cornucopia of sensual effects out there for the intrepid marijuana adventurer to experience. It might take a lifetime to explore. u

IT’S 4:20 SOMEWHERE 20 must-try cannabis products for the stoner in your life

Y

ou know that R.E.M. song “Everybody Hurts”? Well, in 2021, Michael Stipe could change the lyrics to “everybody smokes” and he’d have a stoner anthem on his hands because, honestly, it seems like ever since Michigan legalized the recreational sale of marijuana to adults over the age of 21 in 2018, everyone from Mom, Dad, Grandma Francis, doctors, teachers, celebs, and — yes, even Fido and Fluffy — are toking, dosing, and vaping themselves to good vibes territory. Whether you’re new to the weed game or an experienced midnight toker, navigating metro Detroit’s recreational dispensary counters can be a whirlwind of letters, numbers, and packaging. We’ve compiled an interesting list of must-have cannabis-related products, including strains, gummies, dab rigs, and reading material to take you — or someone you know — higher. FOR THE CONNOISSEUR WHO CAN’T ROLL A DECENT JOINT TO SAVE THEIR LIFE

In 2021, we no longer have to feel like total dweebs because we can’t metrotimes.com |

roll a smokable joint. Though it remains a point of pride for those who roll bomb-ass joints (we’re looking at you, Seth Rogen), the advent of cones, or those handy pre-filtered tubes you dump weed into, has made life a whole lot easier. However, for those who want to streamline the whole damn process, METRO TIMES 2021 USER’S GUIDE

there are pre-rolls, or, in the case of the Slow Roller 12-pack from Arbors Wellness, there are fancy pre-rolls. Starting at $65, these compact pre-rolls come in their own tin and include a total of an eighth of herb. For $75, you could find yourself smoking Six Labs’ Chem D, which packs a 30.9% THC punch at which point someone might as well pre-roll you straight to bed.

Anyway, we’re not going to pretend to know what it’s like to not have cramps because with Moon Tonic Cramp Ease, we can, like, just not have cramps, or at least tone them the eff down. The topical formula helps quiet cramps thanks to a mega dose of THC and CBD, both of which work together to kick pelvic cramps and back pain to the curb when applied to affected areas.

Industrial Hwy., Ann Arbor; 734-627-7360; skymint.com At some point in the last few years, vaping became synonymous with concentrates, the rechargeable batteries with the cartridges of oil. But before concentrates rose to popularity and, you know, long before the word Juul became part of the global lexicon, there was humble herb and humble vaporizers. The PAX, howevmetrotimes.com |

er, as discreet as it may be, is far from humble. The first PAX sprouted in 2012 and has since evolved into a sleek and sexy conduction oven that gently heats cannabis flower in just 22 seconds upon demand. Oh, and this high-tech vape baby isn’t just for flower. The kit, which comes with a USB charger, maintenance kit (you really do need to clean this thing, OK?), and both flat and raised mouthpieces, also comes with a concentrate insert so you can do you — you know, just higher.

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO SUPPORT WOMEN-OWNED PUBLICATIONS

BROCCOLI MAGAZINE, $8.99 New Standard, 24906 John R Rd., Hazel Park; 248-873-0420; anewstandard.com While the cannabis industry remains a male-dominated field, women have been using cannabis since, like, the dawn of time. In fact, according to ancient Egyptian medical text, cannabis is described as medicine for active labor as far back as 1500 BCE. Hell, reports suggest Roman women from 600 BCE-500 BCE also used cannabis for labor pains. But cannabis, regardless of the industry, is the people’s plant, which is what Broccoli magazine is all about. Throughout its tri-annual publication, which has been created by an all-women team with an international network of contributors, Broccoli examines art, culture, fashion, and news relating to cannabis across the globe and encourages a personal journey of self-discovery through cannabis. Oh, and they’re really beautifully made and are a great metrotimes.com |

Not just in function, but in form and beauty, which is why the Ritual + Rose ceramic rose pipe is the vessel we want to smoke Blue Dream out of, using our pointed acr ylic nails to scrape resin from.

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE A CAFFEINATED KICK WITH THEIR CANNABIS

KIVA ESPRESSO BEAN TERRA BITES, $22 Breeze, 24517 John R Rd., Hazel Park; 833-927-3393; breeze.us Don’t talk to us until we’ve had our coffee or our cannabis! But, lucky for you, we’re always abuzz with both. We have to warn you, though — when it comes to Kiva’s Espresso Bean Terra Bites, it’s easy to, well, overdue it. Kiva’s Terra Bites are made from micro-roasted Tanzanian coffee beans coated in dark chocolate, and each piece contains 5mg of THC, with a total of 100mg of THC per container. Fans of this product say that they’re a great way to kick-start morning workouts, though we’re not sure if they’ll inspire morning workouts in those who don’t, uh, normally work out. Can’t hurt to try! FOR SMOKERS WHO LIKE HIGH ART

PAPERS + INK ORGANIC ROLLING PAPERS KIT, $28 Coup D’etat, 3044 W. Grand Blvd., Unit L-460; 313-782-4480; shopcoupdetat.com We’re not sure if you noticed, but smoking weed has evolved beyond metrotimes.com |

Birkenstocks and disc golf. In fact, smoking weed is tres chic and is made even more chic thanks to artsy rolling paper kits from Papers + Ink. Detroit clothing and lifestyle boutique Coup D’etat carries an array of these unbleached, organic papers in beautiful and creative patterns to take your high to high art status. The kits also include filters and a packing tool so you get the perfect puff every time. FOR THOSE WHO REALIZE THAT MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION IS A PRIVILEGE

THE LAST PRISONER PROJECT, lastprisonerproject.org

Legally smoking weed is cool, and medicating with marijuana is great, but it’s also a fucking privilege. Sorry to be a buzzkill, but the system is flawed. More than flawed, it has ruined the lives of more than 40,000 people who are in prison for cannabis-related offenses across the country. Meanwhile, the legal marijuana industry in the U.S. has surpassed $10 billion in sales since 2018. The Last Prisoner Project is a massive nonprofit effort led by cannabis industry leaders, criminal justice and social justice advocates, policy and education experts, and leaders in drug policy reform. The goal? To engage in legislative advocacy and ensure that the costly war on drugs doesn’t take another life and to encourage state legislators to consider Clean Slate bills. u METRO TIMES 2021 USER’S GUIDE
