The secret ingredient is love ... and THC-infused lard.
I went crazy buying seasonal veggies at the farmers market this week. I spotted some curly spigarello broccoli with the edible flowers still on.

Yum!
I grew up in a family full of diabetics so I've learned to stay away from sugar. Instead of a sweet tooth, I acquired more of a salt tooth, which made it difficult in terms of edibles because there were only recipes for brownies and hard candies for the longest time. While it's still not as prevalen...

What do you think?
Parents who medicate claims to be better parents. Before passing judgement, take a moment to consider all the moms who took valium in the 1960's to relax. Who's right? Who's wrong?

I'm a stay at home dad and I can attest to this. I've found it makes me me empathetic to his needs and of course added patience. Now I'm not taking about folks who roll it up with and in front of their children. Discretion is important. I see no difference between it and having a six back.

I knew it!
You've seen it thousands of times on Facebook and other social media outlets, there is even a song on the radio about it! Selfies have become a huge trend in social media and psychiatrists and mental health workers are linking them to mental health conditions related to narcissism and a person's obs...

How long does THC stay in your system?
Figuring out how long THC will stay in your system depends on a few variables that are unique to you. Things like your weight and your metabolic rate are things that differ from one person to the next, yet factor in to what the actual answer is. The method in which a person might be tested for T...

The #WalkingDead  is not just fiction.
We've been fascinated with zombies for decades. First there was the movie The Body Snatchers in 1954 followed by the 1960's cult classic Night of the Living Dead. Most recently AMC's The Walking Dead along with Brad Pitt's World War Z have kept our intrigue with uncontrollable mobs of mindless undea...

It was inevitable PornHub would launch a new virtual reality channel.
It was inevitable. If history has shown us anything, it's that it repeats itself. Some of the earliest websites on the internet were porn sites.
