Dugout Smoking Review


This week we took a look at a smoking product called a Dugout. This device is a combined one-hitter pipe and flower compartment which makes consuming herbs discreet and easy.

Digging into the history of the dugout is a little murky. The pipe design is effectively a small chillum, a smoking device going back to at least the eighteenth century where it was used by Indian monks.

ISMOKE in Amsterdam 2018


Amsterdam is my most visited city to date. I love the vibe right from when you get off the train at Centraal station to when you’re having your last smoke in the coffeeshop before the plane home.

In fact, I enjoy visiting this city so much that I have been back almost every year since my first visit in 2010 to sample the herbal delights that this city has to offer. You could say that it has become a pilgrimage of sorts. It feels that way to me at least!

This year I was visiting with the soon-to-be Mrs Green and some friends, for 3 nights / 4 days in total. One of the days was Elrow festival, a house and techno music event which took place across the water from Centraal Station. The rest of the time we were visiting coffeeshops, eating pancakes and wandering across the city in search of vegan fast food.

We attended Jerk N Fire 2018 in Brighton


Following on from the success of Green Pride in Brighton this Summer was never going to be easy. Yet Jerk N Fire, which took place in Brighton last Saturday, proved to be a great follow-up, albeit slightly more chilled event.

There were thousands of cannabis consumers from the South East of England and beyond who attended the late-summer cannabis celebration event and BBQ.

Jerk N Fire 2018

Pop up shops selling edibles, cannabis social clubs, CBD products, Headshops, cannabis-inspired art, vegan fast food, grills and more were all set up for guests, and each stall had a constant streaming buzz of visitors as revellers checked out what was on offer. These events are perfect for canna-businesses looking to get their products to the market.
