Industry Expert Guest Blog: Nurse Mary J with 5 Steps to Cannabis Advocacy

When I first joined Twitter in the dildo capacity about a year and a half ago, I found a handful of awesome, welcoming, and genuine people right away. One of those people is the beautiful lady behind Nurse Mary J Tattoo Aftercare – Colleen Kibler.

She’s an educator, blogger, businesswoman, cannabis advocate, and total badass to name a few. She’s modest and kind, and is the type of person who takes the time to tell you she appreciates you. She’s the first person who popped into my mind when I wanted to bring you a guest blog, and I’m thrilled that she not only accepted but also wrote a fantastic blog post with little to no guidance.

Activity: Psychedelic Interactive Generative Art

Do you love trippy, psychedelic patterns? Especially when you’re stoned?

I stumbled across this fantastic website called Silk that allows you to create your own. It’s super easy; all you need is a finger or a mouse to drag about your screen and it automatically makes gorgeous patterns. On my first try, I was actually able to draw a human skeleton. You can use a bunch of colors and even mix your own (more…)

Why I Smoke Marijuana, and What Happened After I Quit Recently

Why do we do anything? Why do we make decisions or have opinions? No one (hopefully) tells us what to do, we’re bipedal Homo sapiens; we generally have the ability to make our own choices based on our own logical thinking. We all have unique intuition, tastes, desires, interests, thinking, preferences, and opinions, and we integrate all of those factors subconsciously in every decision we make. But what happens when someone questions our decision-making and tells us we’re making the wrong choice after going through our instinctual process? Lots of people don’t care what others think of them, but it haunts many people like me.

Last year I had the biggest blowout with my family that I’ve ever had before, andJudgment Hammer Fine Penalty Clause Law Court it was because I was berated and judged in my own home. My parents have expressed to me via some comment or joke here and there about (more…)

Review: Bucky King Co. Gravity Bong – Video & More

Short on Time? Scroll Down for the Quick Analysis!

Remember the time(s) in high school when you or your friend made a pipe out of a Poland Spring bottle and a straw, or a gravity bong out of a Mountain Dew bottle and aluminum foil on the fly?  Later on, like me, you may have graduated to separating your real pipe and jury-rigging the bowl piece on top of your Mountain Dew bottle cap for your gravity bong. They were the worst of times, yet probably also the best of times looking back. Oh, the things we design to get high.

Adults should smoke weed with proper, safe, and quality pieces out of respect for the herb, and largely our health. Smoking with aluminum foil and straws really should be reserved for emergencies only. Bucky King Co. realizes that, so they’ve created “The World’s Greatest Gravity Bong,” the Bucky Top.

Review: Chameleon Glass Wake ‘n Bake Mug

20160929_161155

I really associate the Wake ‘n Bake mug with relaxation. This isn’t the kind of thing you take on the go; I see this mug being used on a lazy Sunday afternoon with your feet up looking out at the lake, on vacation at a cabin in the woods, or in bed at night (more…)

Review: Arizer Air Vaporizer from Vaped

Short on Time? Scroll Down to the Bottom for the Quick Analysis!

In full disclosure/testimony, I am not low as I write this review, thanks to the Arizer Air from Vaped. I typically try a product out a few times before I review it, and usually once again right before I write about it so I can capture my most honest impressions of it. I just (more…)

My First Anniversary Bash Is On

It’s halfway through the month, and we’re only days away from Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Those of you in warmer climates haven’t been too affected; but the poor bastards (like me) who just had to dig our way out of Storm Stella in the Midwest and Eastern U.S. have just about had enough. We all need a little something to look forward to right now, so I figured it’s a great time to get my Anniversary Bash going.

Below is the Calendar of Carousal followed by descriptions of the events. Extra activities and giveaways will be added along the way, so subscribe or check back frequently to be notified of what has been released.

Ophelia’s First Anniversary Bash – Giveaways, Reviews, Activities, and Stray Llamas

Thoughts With a Dildo in Hand has existed in my mind for a couple of years now, and I finally released it to the world just over one year ago. For my first anniversary, I’m throwing a month-long virtual bash in your honor. After all – I’d just be talking to myself if I didn’t have my faithful readers.

So, thank you.

To celebrate, I’ll be reviewing some awesome products and giving away a bunch more. I’ll be sharing personal stories of other ‘firsts’ I’ve had, and have other fun things to do too. There will also be llamas.

Review: ‘Complete Solution’ from Chameleon Glass

As always, scroll down for the Quick Tech Specs!

If you like dabbing and also like smoking dry herb, it’s a real bitch to have to tote around two different rigs. That’s one reason why Chameleon Glass came up with the ‘Complete Solution.’ It’s a combination dab rig AND bubbler, so all you have to do is switch out the attachment when you want either combustion or atomization. Plus, it DISASSEMBLES for easy cleaning and traveling. I’d say it can’t get much more ‘complete’ than that.

Review: The Silver Surfer Vaporizer from Vaped

As always, scroll down for the Quick Tech Specs!

I’ve tried several portable vaporizers in the past few years but I hadn’t yet encountered a desktop vape in my travels. We’ve all heard of the Volcano Vaporizer, but you don’t hear too much about any other brands of desktop vapes. I assure you, more exist. Vaped.com carries a great selection of both portable and desktop vaporizers, all of which have been researched thoroughly by Vaped and given their official stamp of approval. When they say they “live and breathe vaporizers,” they mean it – I haven’t found a vape from their website that I don’t like.

I’ve checked out the very user-friendly and chic Imag+, the multi-functional and never-dying Haze V3 Dual Chamber, the classy (and even vibrating!) Focusvape, and the dual-use Arizer Solo that can be used as a vape or for aromatherapy! All have been extremely quality, reasonably priced, and have not disappointed me. This time, I’ve been tasked with scrutinizing the Silver Surfer Vaporizer and I’m excited to share my findings!

Included in the package is:

Chameleon Glass ‘Ladies’ Choice’ Review + 10% Off Code

I introduced you to Chameleon Glass a while back when I hosted the McCoy Oilers Reynolds Rig Giveaway. The piece that stood out to me most from their extensive collection is by far the ‘Ladies’ Choice’ for its elegance and sleek design. Pink and black happen to be my favorite combination too, and together they make this rig look extremely classy.

Being Judged for My Medicine | Why You Should Be Yourself

As I mentioned, I was recently put in an unfair and uncomfortable position by members of my family, but I tried to put a smile on and pretend anyway.

It led to the biggest blowout in our family history, and me having an anxiety attack in the dark on our closet floor.

I felt ambushed, judged, and disrespected in my own home. Like I said, my husband stood up for me which was amazing, but it also put him in a position of standing up to MY FAMILY. Of course, this caused additional issues between them. The result was the gang of family leaving and going to dinner while my husband pieced me back together.

Hiking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire with Roll-uh-Bowl | 20+ Pictures!

I’ve always appreciated animals and nature, and the White Mountains in New Hampshire has become one of my favorite spots in the world. I’ve been going up there since I was 18 years old and still spend a lot of time there throughout the year.

I’ve had a lot going on in the last few months, and I recently finalized some things that were pretty time-consuming. I found myself struggling to stay motivated in the weeks leading up to the end so I decided I needed something to look forward to in order to get through it. So I booked myself a room for one for a week at our resort up in the mountains. Whenever I felt overwhelmed or got depressed, I’d fantasize about what I’d do on my ‘mental health holiday’ to get my spirits up.

Damngood Threads from Damnworld Clothing

Without clothes, we’d often be arrested. A lot of us smoke marijuana, so why not combine the two for some awesome threads? Damnworld Clothing has done just that.

They’re a company out of the west coast that has a line of clothing specially made with the Ganja Girl in mind. They caught my eye because they actually have cute clothing. I know whenever I see weed-related clothes, it’s hardly ever created with female-friendly designs or cuts. Damnworld Clothing nailed it on both fronts because they have a super cute Ganja Girl design on feminine clothing.
