You Are What You Eat: Naturopathic Medicine Works

You Are What You Eat: Naturopathic Medicine Works

“I noticed a dime size spot on her scalp when she was about a year and a half.” For little Eliza, foods she has eaten have broken down her immune system and left her susceptible to a difficult and little-studied disease—Alopecia Universalis. “I thought it was from sleeping on one side more than the other,” […]

LADY BUSINESS: Jane Klein, Growing a Cannabis Activist Empire

Photos by Angela Bacca unless otherwise noted.  Is it embarrassing in this day and age to say that I really didn’t know who Jane Klein was besides being the wife of a world famous cannabis botanist? I, like most cannabis enthusiasts am familiar with her husband, Ed Rosenthal. For about forty years, Ed’s been a […]

REVIEW: Essie Nail Polish

REVIEW: Essie Nail Polish

Admittedly, I am a little late jumping onto the nail polish bandwagon. Last year, total U.S. nail polish sails spiked to $768 million, a 32% spike over 2011,with no sign of slowing in 2013. Essie Nail Polish is my newest beauty obsession. I have rationally never been one for nail polishes, I can’t sit still for […]

Women, Stop Hating Other Women

Women, Stop Hating Other Women

The term “Uncle Tom” is an old term still used today to describe members of the Black community who disregard their own people and culture to conform to majority-white culture. In the spirit of equality, it seems that women have jumped on the band wagon of hating their own as well. Women have a tendency […]

REVIEW: SEX POT: The Marijuana Lover’s Guide to Gettin’ It On

Photo: Kenneth Locke of author Lisa “Mamakind” Kirkman By Helen Jane Evans Not your average guide to, well, anything, SEX POT: the Marijuana Lover’s Guide to Gettin’ it On by Mamakind, is a veritable vocab-volumizing, stoner and sexaholic stimulating (and if read aloud to some friends) oral orgy of organic orgasms. The book, which came […]

REVIEW: Kitten – Cut it Out EP

REVIEW: Kitten – Cut it Out EP

Kitten is going to be a trend setter. When I first heard this, I thought it could be some cool indie foreign band. It’s a blend of synth with just the right amount of nostalgic angst so many artists are trying to capture. The music is catchy but honest, effortless and soulful. I was blown […]

Musicians: Not Special

Musicians: Not Special

Musicians. They’re just not that special. If you’re a musician and you’re reading this, I just blew your fucking mind. I bet nobody has ever dared to even suggest something so ludicrous to you. Here, let me say it again, “Yo dude, guess what? You’re not that special.” First off, let’s identify this tenacious and […]

LADY BUSINESS: Smokies Toke Couture

LADY BUSINESS: Smokies Toke Couture

Having been immersed in the cannabis reform movement and culture for nearly two decades, I’ve seen the gamut of stoner “fashion”. A lot of the pieces are really linear and well, boring. A few exceptions in my collection (which are leaning towards being vintage by now), would be a heart with cannabis leaf and RX […]

Olive Green: Shopping for the Future

“I want to get away from the concept of recycling clothes. I want the word recycling to be redundant. Olive Green is the future of clothes buying.” -Kate Bayly  If I’ve learned anything from my living room, it’s that women love Kate Bayly. My wife and I are very open and honest in our communication. I […]
