Dear Marley – Does Weed Expire?

Does weed expire?

I’ll keep this short and sweet. I just turned 21 and my mum was cool enough to give me her old stash box. So now I’ve got this Madonna lunch box which is pretty dope on its own, but there’s ACTUAL WEED INSIDE! I weighed it out and there’s about 11 grams. I guess this is actually a two part question…

  1. How did she NOT smoke all that weed? Come on, mom!

  2. Does weed go bad? Like, does marijuana have an expiry date or nah?

It looks alright in the bag, so I’m thinking if it looks like a duck and swims like a duck – so like, I’ll fly like a duck, right? But I want to be sure cause I’m not about getting sick and bad tripping. Marley, can I smoke my mum’s marijuana from the 90’s or should I keep the box and trash the stash?

-SITTIN’ ON MUM’S STASH

DEAR MUM’S STASH,

Does weed expire? That’s a good question. Firstly, please give your mother a big hug. I think she’s quite, as you kids say, “lit”, for passing on such an important family heirloom to her son at such an appropriate time in his life. I can guarantee you that she’s been excited to give it to you for quite some time.

To answer your first question, one can only assume that something changed in her life. Something so big that she had to say goodbye to Sweet Mary for a while. Something SO BIG, that whatever IT was, IT was likely something she had to look after 24 hours a day and she wasn’t comfortable doing so while high. Let’s assume she never got around to smoking that 11 grams because she was preoccupied with raising… you? Just a hunch…

Onto the real question at hand; Does weed expire? Or better yet, does it go bad? Define “bad”? The term is as subjective as taste in half-hour sitcoms. Is the Big Bang Theory BAD? Depends on who you ask. But just for the record, if someone’s response to that question is no, you probably don’t want to smoke a joint with that individual.

As I’m sure you know, the primary psychoactive component in marijuana is THC. THC concentration decreases over time, but it’s not harmful to smoke “stale” or “weak” weed. It’s not comparable to a carton of milk that’s a few weeks past its date of expiration if that’s what you’re wondering. If I understand correctly, it was stored in a closed lunch box and likely in a closet where light never hit the contents of Madonna’s box. No direct light is a good sign for preservation. Take note of this for storing your own stuff, assuming you buy your own drugs and don’t wait around for your family’s sloppy seconds. Treat it like a fruit bat and always store your stash in a dark space.  You’ll be happy with the results.

I suggest you roll a nice sized joint with your mother’s marijuana and ask her to smoke it with you. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, but it seems like your relationship lends itself to this activity. Whatever slight burn you may feel down the bottom your throat will be well worth the experience. Once elevated together, take the remaining 9-10 grams and flush it. Buy some grade AAAA strain from a trusted seller and next time, smoke mum on the good stuff.

The Internet Reacts to Canada Legalizing Weed

Published

on

It’s official! Prime Minister Trudeau has announced the date recreational cannabis sales will be legal in Canada.

Jah Bless to all our Canadian friends. Yes, cry, sing, cheer, here’s the internet’s reaction to Canada legalizing weed.

A near 100-year prohibition has come to an end as the Prime Minister of the Great White North announced the official date that marijuana will be legal nationwide. That day is October 17th, 2018.

The internet was chalk full of priceless reactions to Canada legalizing weed. First, it started with some genuine attempts to congratulate a nation that had fought hard and long to see this day through. Ex-Youtube star and pro-gamer xCodex made his piece.

And activist Dana Larsen chimed in with a notion that although this is a huge first step, there’s also a ton of work to do before those who use cannabis are truly free under the law.

Then the hilarity ensued. The jokes seemed to surround the little-beef President Trump had started with the insulting tariffs on Canada.

Most cannabis enthusiasts have a special container in their life. It’s a container that holds many things very near and dear to their heart. Papers, grinders, filters and more, a stoner’s stash box can tell you a lot about the owner. Is it big? Small? Dirty? Clean? Organized? Or messy? What about the story behind it?

In a Stash Story, we try to reveal the personal touches to choosing a place to store your herb. Your stash box could be a gift, a discovery, or an epiphany. But we want to see it!

A Stash Story: Checkmate

“Fresh out of school with a diploma in hand (makes for an excellent rolling tray, btw), I decided it was time to shift from my college habits and start smoking weed like a gentleman. It was hard to get rid of the IPhone 3G box that served me so well over those 4 years, but at the end of the day, I forced myself to toss it in the recycling bin and start fresh. Knowing what I had on its way made it slightly easier. 

I ordered my new stash box online and it arrived within a week. This may seem dramatic, but my new stash box is majestic. It really is. Like, checkmate, other stash boxes. I know it’s not a competition and I’m mostly kidding, but take a look at this thing. I believe it’s meant for cigars but turns out it works perfectly to stash my weed. There’s ample room for my bud, lighters, grinder and any and all additional tools I need to roll the perfect joint.

When my parents visited my new apartment a few months ago, dad questioned my newfound love for chess. Before I had the chance to respond, my mom reminded him (and me) that I was absolutely fascinated with the game of as a grade 1 student and how wonderful it is that I’m getting back into it. A part of me wanted to open it up and be like “THIS IS WHAT IT IS. IT’S FOR MY MARIJUANAS” but I thought better of it and defused the situation by asking my dad if 6 pawns equal 1 queen. He rolled his eyes and moved on to the next room.

So uh, ya. This is my premium stash box. It’s great.”
