ur fascination with cannabis oil vapes is well justified. Not only does vaping produce similar effects to smoking dry herb, but it’s also a healthier alternative and has the added benefits of convenience and discretion. From novice smoker to veteran toker, vape pens are incredibly appealing to those who demand a convenient on-the-go solution. With recreational legalization passing in many states, it’s expected that more and more people will turn to vapes for a simple and effective alternative.

understanding oil vape cartridges With new brands popping up every day, it is impossible to truly know the quality and content of all the available cartridges. Doing your own research and testing different products is the best way to determine which brand is right for you. One thing is for certain; vape cartridges are gaining popularity and are here to stay.

There has been a lot of misunderstanding regarding cannabis oil vape cartridges; and for good reason. With so many brands on the market, many consumers don’t exactly know what they’re smoking, and if those brands actually live up to their claims. Smokable cannabis oil is produced using one of two methods: chemical extraction or supercritical CO2 extraction. Chemical extraction uses fluid solvents like butane and ethanol to extract the oil, but results in a darker liquid with an often described “harsh taste.” Supercritical extraction is a newer and more advanced method that uses clean CO2 instead of potentially harmful chemicals. The process itself is considered “organic” but that doesn’t always mean the end product is completely organic. Different flavors and strains of cartridges are created by adding compounds called “terpenes” to the extracted oil. Terpenes are responsible for the flavor and aroma of marijuana, ranging from sweet and sour to spicy and bitter. They also contribute to the psychoactive effects related to THC vapes.

When W Vapes said “Premium Cannabis Oil” they weren’t kidding. W Vapes has earned lots of accolades recently including Best Sativa Concentrate at the Green Games in San Diego. We’ve tried lots of vapes in our day and can honestly say this was one of the best in terms of taste and quality. The hits are smooth and the effects can be felt within minutes. Their ultra-refined, crystal clear oil is beautiful and they offer a nice strain-specific selection.

LOKI LOTION

safe access fOr aLL Cannabis to me, is a medicine—but more than that, it’s a peace movement. A movement of people who want to see better for other humans.”

both beth and christina are moms who are transitioning in their careers and trying to reinvent themselves within the cannabis industry. beth hasn’t always been a cannabis user. after a serious illness beth has found relief in life through cannabis and was able to escape the pharmaceutical cycle. “Thank God for cannabis, “states Beth. “I was able to take the edge off and get away from all my medications. I had insomnia and could get away from sleeping pills as well. This was all because of cannabis and edibles.” christina is a cancer survivor, and cannabis saved her life. a combination of western medicine and cannabis, helped her to pull out of her illness and was able to not be addicted to pharmaceuticals. after a life-altering conversation with her doctor, christina was determined to better her health through alternative methods. “The opiates were poisoning me more than the cancer, once it was over, and you can’t live a life like that. The doctor looked me in the eye and told me, ‘You’re not sick. You didn’t take your opiates today. You’re opiate dependent.’ Once I heard that, I was going to dependent on these pills, there was no way that was happening. Cannabis is not a cure-all, but it will help you fight.” THE BRAND TBC: For those who are new to the world of topicals, what could you tell me about your brand and the benefits of your ointments and products? C: “We are a whole plant company, our products are THC based. We’re working on a CBD product. . . [because] we understand the need for CBD for the healing of patients such as children, but with our products, there is no psycho-activity involved, and THC has proven itself as a massive painkiller.” B: “Our belief system is that there needs to be affordable and healthy products. We are on this mission to create a product line that is affordable, [and natural].” C: “We started out as a topical pain solvent—we strongly believe in that. But we have moved into the beauty line; we believe that there should be natural products in the market with the value of cannabis and essential oils—to move away from the chemical

and cancer causing agents we find in mainstream America. . . We have body scrubs for skin cleansing, [as well as] an Epsom salt soak for pain and relieving toxins in the body. . . And we are working on an all-natural CBD product.” What efforts does your brand take to educate your clients and patients? B: “There are too many people that have been affected by crappy products. There has to be help for people out there, and we strongly believe in cannabis therapy. For us, it’s about educating people about cannabis, essential oils, and detoxing the body—[in order to live a more natural lifestyle.” B & C:“Cannabis therapy is about educating people, and giving people options. There needs to be education about milligrams, as well.” B:“Cannabis for me, isn’t a one-size fits all. It works for some people, and not for others. People have different reactions to it... I feel as though I need to put a disclaimer out there. Just as pharmaceuticals have side effects, cannabis has an adjustment period.” C: “With topicals there is a lot of education that has to go on. You’re putting it on your skin, it isn’t entering the blood stream, so you’re not going to test positive for a drug test and you’re not going to have psychoactive effects.” LOKI LOTION: HOMELESS OUTREACH C: “We have our homeless outreach as well. One of our big things is: safe access for all. The homeless need medicine, they cannot afford a recommendation, these things are impossible for the But they need and deserve to have medicine that is not addictive. That’s how we got started. Our testing came from the homeless in downtown LA. These people, given the choice, want to use cannabis.” What do you mean your testing came from the homeless in LA? C: “We had a product and nowhere to put it. At the time, we were based in downtown in LA. We’ve always come from the mindset of helping those in need, so we started giving our products out on the streets, and we followed-up with those who were using it...And we continue to outreach.”

Proposition 64

Some Legal Stuff That Could Kill The Buzz

By Rob Starr

Even though we’re sure the only paper that you’re really concerned with has ZigZag written on the package, we all really need to stop and pay attention to what’s now a legal document that was once a proposition. It’s important to put the pipe down ( but only for a few minutes) and settle back to learn all about the new green umbrella covering what you can and can’t do where legal pot is concerned under the newly minted Proposition 64. Decriminalized recreational marijuana in our state. Six of the most invigorating words most of us have ever heard but there won’t be happy clouds of Mary Jane on every street corner in our Sunshine State just yet. Why? Because Prop 64 has crossed that magic line from the embodiment of the freewheeling wishes of all the happy smokesters in California into a law. And now there are rules to be followed that will regulate and tax the sale, transportation and , last but certainly not least, the growth of everyone’s favourite herb. Here’s a quick rundown of how Big Brother might try and sour our buzz. Vertical Integration

According to the lawyer types, Prop 64 or the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA), stops large scale cultivation for at least the first five years. Translation? The folks who put the paperwork together wanted to make sure that we all didn’t wake up to a monopoly one day where we could only buy our smoke from giant Wal-Mart sized warehouses. In fact, microgrower’s licenses for the small Ma and Pot type shops will be available for the entrepreneur that wants to make a living, but those two words beside the bullet point were bolded for a reason. Vertical Integration sounds like a Wall Street term because the cost of getting the right licenses ( up to $100,000 dollars by some estimates) can put a real pinch on small operators. 24

THE 420 BOOK

Legal Pot For Legal Adults in Certain Places Only

People who are twenty-one and older in our state can possess, buy and transport up to 28.5 grams of recreational marijuana. If you plan on lighting up your favorite stogie after a great meal at the local Denny’s or during a movie, you need to think again. Recreational pot use under the new law means that pot will be treated a lot like tobacco—it can’t be smoked in public places where it’s already illegal to smoke that other leaf that gives you lung cancer. Imagining what fun it will be to light up anywhere in public? Stop. The new law will have a $100 fine for that and if you’re a minor and get caught, you can face up to four hours in a drug education rehabilitation program. Advertising

If you’re looking for James Franco and Seth Rogen to start popping up on your television screens in hilarious stoner commercials that will have you running out the door to buy your best bud, Prop 64 falls short. The bar is set so that there won’t be any marketing to minors and we can all agree that’s a good thing. There won’t be any billboards that cross the line with any other states either. Remember, The Feds still classify marijuana as an illegal drug so that means no advertising on radio and television stations controlled by Washington. Taxes….Lots of Taxes

We saved this part for last because we couldn’t imagine you reading on after you found out about the percentages your government will take in taxes before you get home with your smoke. Proposals include a 15% excise tax on the retail sale and a cultivation tax for growers as well as a taste for cities and counties on the way through. If you’ve read all this and are feeling a little downed, take heart. As far as we can tell, the long arm of the government won’t touch those papers you’ve got in your hand. So back at it.

artist By TBC

“I’m a pioneer in the 420 industry in San Diego and it’s a green rush right now...”

e i g BBaigbylon He’s not just another rapper, he’s a marijuanapreneur! Biggie Babylon was born in San Diego to a pair of Chaldean immigrants. At age twelve, he was working weekends at his father’s liquor store, Mike’s Market, on 36th and Ocean View Blvd. in Southeast San Diego. Through middle, high school, and college Babylon excelled while also working everyday. By twenty-one, he opened his own business, a check cashing and cellular store across from Mike’s Market. In 2006, Babylon invested in the production of his friends rap album which changed their lives. Babylon recalls, “The music went viral and suddenly TIMZ was making national TV appearances, winning awards, and we were traveling the country on a nationwide hip hop tour. I wanted to do this forever.“ Babylon built a studio where TIMZ could focus on creation and he could focus on developing artists. Babylon saw himself primarily as “behind the scenes” but organically developed into an artist himself. Meanwhile he continued with business expansion and opened his first dispensary in 2011. Babylon’s Garden was nominated by Weedmaps as ‘Best New Collective.’ After being shuttered in 2012, Babylon sold his check cashing and focused on entertainment. He hired producer Josh Franks and released the album, “C.E.O.G.” which received critical acclaim in 2013. The San Diego City Beat called his album ‘ExtraSpecialGood’ and The San Diego Reader published articles about him. He’s opened up for Mobb Deep at the House Of Blues San Diego, Ty Dolla $ign at the House of Blues, and The 420 Book Magazine event at the Viper Room. In 2014, he closed his studio and moved to Los Angeles where he enrolled in acting classes at the world famous Beverly Hills Playhouse. In 2015 he wrote, directed, and starred in “RYDE,” a must-see short film which is still in consideration for multiple film festivals. He has also acted in TV commercials and shows. In the summer of 2016, Babylon moved back to San Diego to focus on music and the multi-billion dollar marijuana industry. Babylon says, “I’m a pioneer in the 420 industry in San Diego and it’s a green rush right now. There’s opportunities to make money with cannabis and it doesn’t have to be from selling the plant itself.” As a marijuanapreneur, (a term he invented) Biggie Babylon plans to market legal cannabis related products using entertainment. His weed related music videos have been featured on Worldstar Hip Hop and he is a two time Z90 FM radio “Hotshot” champion for his singles “The UBER Song” and “Small Town Girl.” This month he is embarking on an eleven city west coast radio tour with Young California DJ Bille Knight. His new album “Mary Want Her Money” drops early 2017. Babylon is currently a brand ambassador for Krush Rx which he says makes the purest and most potent extracts. You can find them at Biggie’s favorite dispensary, Planetary Meds in Spring Valley, or at a dispensary near you.

about

The Southern California Coalition is the premiere marijuana industry coalition in Los Angeles, comprised of marijuana businesses in all licensing categories and partnering with strategic non-industry advocacy organizations. Together SCC is working collaboratively with the Los Angeles City Council to organize a measure to replace the City’s 2013 Proposition D. Priorities of the Coalition include: The Southern California Coalition is the premiere marijuana industry coalition in Los Angeles, comprised of marijuana businesses in all licensing categories and partnering with strategic non-industry.

our mISSION

As the City of Los Angeles prepares to replace its 2013 marijuana ordinance (Proposition D) local lawmakers must organize policy that meets public safety, public health, revenue and tax and community reinvestment goals and is consistent with the State’s 2015 medical marijuana legislative package (the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act). It must also be mindful of the likelihood that voters will also approve Proposition 64 in November, which will legalize recreational marijuana access in California. With so much to balance it can be difficult to lose sight of the fundamentals that must be addressed in reforming the City’s current policies on marijuana businesses – preserving the safety and health of the citizens of Los Angles and carrying out the will of the voters.

40

THE 420 BOOK

Organizing a licensing system that enables compliant cannabis businesses in all licensing categories (dispensaries, delivery services, cultivators, processors, manufacturers, testing facilities) to enter the City’s legal marijuana industry without unnecessarily lengthy, costly or overly burdensome delays. Only by providing a path to legal compliance for all of the City’s marijuana businesses will the City be able to address its large illegal market. Ensuring that any measure designed to replace Proposition D provides for licensing of marijuana businesses owned and operated by minorities and members of communities disproportionately impacted by years of marijuana prohibition. Working to establish appropriate zoning for marijuana businesses that meet the needs of medical patients while also protecting public safety and preventing underage access. Developing a tax and community reinvestment model to support the City’s public safety, public health and youth education initiatives, while keeping retail prices low enough to curb illegal market activity. Opposing the proposal of the United Cannabis Business Alliance (UCBA), which would create a monopoly for only a very limited number of marijuana businesses in the City, do nothing to provide a path to legal compliance for the thousands of marijuana businesses operating in the City, ignore the needs of patients across the City, and leave the City unprepared to handle the high level of demand from recreational users should Proposition 64 be approved by the voters in November.

WHAT TO DO WHEN pulled over and APPROACHED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT 420 Consultants Know your rights, but don’t cross the line! Words you don’t want to hear are: “Can I see your drivers license, registration and proof of insurance.” But, if you are pulled over, here are some common sense rights you should be aware of. 1 • You were stopped for a reason. Regardless of how you want to look at it. Maybe its late at night and your driving a honda civic (most stolen car) or you the only “fish” out there. Whatever the case, you have been stopped and need to deal with the situation appropiately. 2 • As the office approaches your car, the first words out of your mouth should not be: “Why was I stopped?”, “I know my rights,”or anything that could be considered rude. 3 • Do NOT start reaching around to get what you think is needed. Keep you hands in plain sight (including all passengers) and don’t get out of the car to “greet” the officer. 4• Answer questions truthfully as to not create another reason for being questioned. Respond in a non-hostile tone and be cooperative. in the event that you are being detained, the same rules follow as above, except.... 1 • Do not answer any questions other than who you are. If a miranda warning is issued, state that I have been instructed not to answer any more questions and SAY NOTHING MORE. 2 • You will know based upon the questions being asked by the officer if the traffic stop is going to be a ticket or something more serious. The first indication that the stop is not routine is when you are asked to exit the car and/or another officer pulls up. You may also be asked to have your vehichle searched and if you have anything illegal in your possession. 3 • Your willingness to want to please the officer is not going to help you. It will just make the details of the report more accurate. Remember, police officers have a job and rules they are instructed to follow. One thing for sure, if you’re rude, aggressive and being a AH (ass) YOU ARE GOING to lose!

Know your rights 3 Ask if you are free to go. If so, leave calmly. 3 Exercise your right to remain silent.

THE GREEN

ECONOMY “The green economy is in a critical state of transition.”

The nature of the marijuana market in California is experiencing a critical shift. The recent policy change is expected to relieve the determent associated with marijuana transactions. These changes in user sanctions are believed to cause a shift in demand, influencing the price paid by consumers in local markets. By examining the characteristics of the market, using supply-side theory, we can better project the future of the green economy. The marijuana landscape of California is subjected to key variables, which should be considered in this examination. They are as follows: • There seems to exist regional markets for marijuana. Meaning that prices per ounce vary by region in California. An average top shelf ounce in San Diego is $350 versus the $285 in Santa Barbara. • Differences in transaction-level characteristics influence buyers and sellers. Transaction-specific characteristics can include dispensary operational fees, taxes, and other factors.

50 50

THE THE 420 420 BOOK BOOK

AN EXAMINATION OF THE CALIFORNIA MARIJUANA MARKET THE SUPPLY-SIDE If the changes in California policy are expected to lower sanctions, and the supply of marijuana is perfectly competitive, the adoption of these policies should not affect the monetary price of marijuana. However if the supply is upward sloping, because of the policy change, the increase would cause a temporary demand shift to the right. Resulting in a short-term increase in the retail price of marijuana. It is important to note that the cost of marijuana will only increase during the adjustment period of the new California policy. Afterwards, the retail price is expected to substantially decline. “The price the consumers face will depend heavily on taxes, the structure of the regulatory regime, and how taxes and regulations are enforced.” A contributing factor to this, is changes in marijuana production. For example, the widespread adoption of hydroponics has enhanced productivity while reducing costs. Another factor that affects the price paid for marijuana is the demand for a particular product in a specific region. As mentioned earlier, regional differences affect the price paid for local markets. As you move further from the source, the cost of transportation, maintenance, etc. increases. For example the popular hybrid Girl Scout Cookies originates in Northern California, however you can find the strain in most San Diego storefronts. Therefore it is safe to assume, that the price for GSC increases as you travel further South. The green economy is in a critical state of transition. As the market further develops from the policy change, dramatic shifts in consumer experiences are expected to increase. Because the exact nature of the market can not be predicted, there needs to be further analysis on the subject. Stay tuned as we traverse the marijuana landscape. With Love, TBC

KRE8 GENETICS:

GROW TOGETHER “Our whole point was to bring a bunch of breeders together, who don’t get the recognition they deserve. So that we can create really fire shit, really good medicine, and try to rebuild the breeding community.”

By: TBC

Founded between 2009 and 2010, KRE8 GENETICS is altering the green landscape. They are known for the strains, Cookie Jar: Platinum Girl Scout Cookies x Wifi Alien OG and Slimer OG: Ghost OG x Wifi Alien OG, as well as their Mallow Crownie edible, which has won 13 awards. The Los Angeles based breeding company is providing an avenue for cannabis collaboration. Understanding the need for stronger communal relations amongst breeders, KRE8 GENETICS has created an opportunity for less recognized breeders, by providing an outlet for education and distribution. With a small-business mindset, this company is transforming the cannabis landscape.

Kasper, The Organic Mechanic, his wife Rachielle, their partner Big Head are transforming the nature of the breeding community. Working with their breeding partner McLovin from North Coast Genetics and the seed bank Oregon Elite Seeds, this company promotes cannabis interdependence.

TBC: How did KRE8 GENETICS come about? R: “We started growing in 2004, fully-committed to it. We did that for a few years, trying to master the craft and grow with the industry and find the best and most efficient ways to do it. Once we built our stock, we started doing research into breeding...We were finding it really hard to find really good genetics and strains that were accessible in the United States.” “We try to take the most popular and appealing strains that we can find, with the strongest phenos [phenotypes] from around our team...and we make sure to get their permission to breed with that stock to create new strains. Or we take our strains and create new strains with each other, it depends.” When you tell your cannabis story, how do you represent yourself as a brand? K, R: “Rachel is my wife and partner in this, [as well as] my boy Big Head...It’s us as a team, everyone knows us as a team together. There are not a lot of husband and wife breeding teams, we do everything together.” What separates your brand from other breeders? R: “If we plan to use anyone’s genetics, we take the time to contact them. We spend the time of 6 to 12 months to contact them, before we run our program. To make sure that everything is fine. Anybody

that purchases our seeds across the world, knows that we want them to breed with it. They have free-range, and they know that.” R: “Also, we have made it clear from the first pack we distributed, that we guarantee every pack. If you don’t like the female to male ratio, or if something didn’t pop, we are going to replace that pack. It may not be the same, because genetics come and go, but we guarantee something fire.” K:“We also do edibles, but we are not an edible company. We have won multiple awards for this. We use old school methods of butter. My wife was a chef for a while, and she murders everybody. I will say that with confidence, and not back down on this.” Rachielle, I challenge you this. I bet my snickerdoodles can knock you off your feet!I would love to hear your guy’s opinions on them! K: “Rachielle can. I can’t smoke [regular] cannabis, I smoke CBD flowers with 1% THC, because I get panic attacks from my anxiety. That is why I got into this business, so that I could create something I could smoke. I haven’t been able to smoke since 1998.” How is the political landscape of breeding within the cannabis industry? R:“There is a lot of ego in this industry. Although they are spreading their genetics around, once you take some of their genetics and use it, if your genetics are better—they get upset.” K: “There is no respect amongst breeders [within the industry] , and everyone should come together while we still have it. This shit can be ripped from us in seconds.” @greenlifeseeds_aka_kre8genetic
