She practically wanders around with a camera in her hand. It’s her passion and the key to the source of Ms. Morris’ creativity. When she’s not shooting clients, she’s modeling, acting and even directing. For Morris, finding the balance between work and her private life is essential. 

 

“Keeping your business and personal life to yourself is protection, and one-sided relationships can only benefit one person,” she said.

What is your profession? What services does your job offer?

I am a creative person. I do everything from photography, writing, modeling, directing and acting. You name it, I do it.

How did you become successful in your field?

By being genuine and consistent with people. When you’re a good person and do good, it gets around.

What stress, obstacles do you have to deal with in your profession?

A lot. I’m a woman that’s in a male-dominated industry. I work with many men. Sometimes being the only woman can be a bit uncomfortable. Meanwhile, shooting women sometimes is worse because women are  naturally competitive. I can tell a woman what I may think is nice, but off the bat most times women may think that you are trying to shade them.

At what age, or when, did you first start using cannabis and CBD products?

I started in my early 30s.

How often do you integrate cannabis and/or CBD into your daily/weekly routine?

Often at least a couple of times a week. I have a demanding career.

What positive effects does cannabis/CBD have on you?

What positive effects does cannabis/CBD have on you?

My creativity goes to another level. 

What is your favorite strain of cannabis and why?

I honestly don’t have a favorite strain per se. I enjoy everything from the gummies to the oil. Depending on how my stress level is, that’s what helps me determine which one.

What is your favorite CBD product and why?

 I don’t have a favorite, but the gummies actually taste good to me. Like regular candy. I can have a few throughout the day and be super nice.

What advice could you give to women that want to follow in your footsteps?

Take your professionalism seriously, never mix business and pleasure. Be feminine, but also be firm about your work.  Also, dress for your environment and the job that you are there to do, so they know you mean business.

How has Covid affected your business/personal life? Both good and bad?

Covid has been amazing for my business. It forced me to slow down and got back in touch with my creative side. Also, tasks that were once a little out of reach are in the palm of my hand. 

What has 2020 taught you?

That keeping your business and personal life to yourself is protection, and one-sided relationships can only benefit one person.

In so many words explain what goes through a woman’s mind throughout a day?

Do you have all day? I mean everything goes through my mind, children, career, finances, love and marriage.  Not to mention, I tend to take on other people’s problems because I am empathic.

What advice can you give a man from a woman’s point of view on romance and life?

Always be direct, clear and communicative about what you want. Comprehension is a must as well.

When the homies visited LA, despite their reputable East Coast  “cannaisseurs” ranks — my Cannabis 101 was in session. I had to plainly break down marijuana. If not, we’d be rolling “$100 OG” or premium marijuana for shits and giggles. 

“Sativas are going to give you a jolt of energy,” I explained as I reached for the rolling papers.

Perhaps it was the variation of their highs that raised eyebrows, but there’s this — “Aha!” moment when I “expertly” detail their high on sativas, indicas or hybrids.

“And you should feel your head high…. NOW,” I told my homie while he suspiciously stared at me dumbfoundedly high.

People's Heads Were Exploding

Moving to Los Angeles meant getting my first medicinal marijuana card. I admit I was a complete novice. Even the doctor who prescribed the card, didn’t offer advice on what to try for pain or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, issues.

 

“Indica, in da couch,” he said. “And sativa was for daytime use.”

There was no cool rhyme for sativa.

 

I wasn’t an avid smoker on the East Coast. I’d typically smoked whatever my friends got from the local weedman. At that point, it is a Russian roulette of weed of different names with promises of “THE” ultimate high. The highest of the highest.

 

Just like Kat Williams — “This shit here…” my friends bragged too. And with everyone claiming to have “the dankest shit,” that wasn’t necessarily always true. Everytime I blazed it was a different experience. I didn’t know if it would bless me with the muse to a masterpiece or knock me out for the night with my clothes on.

Does Knowing The Difference Matter?

Weed is weed. Roll it. Light it. Toke it. Pass it. Weed is mother fucking weed. No disputing that EVER. But here’s the thing… 

 
4. CampNova-Know..ISH-STrain-Indica-Sativa-Best-Hybrid-Resource-Education

Knowing the difference between a sativa, indica and hybrid, you smoke differently. The simplicity of sweet knowing changes the way you buy weed, too. In legal states, there’s no more high guessing. Potheads these days know exactly what they’re buying. 

 

The truth is, buying and smoking legal weed is no longer a novelty. Becoming a contemporary smoker in a legal state means knowing what the literal fuck you’re sparking. There’s no easier way to say this, but finding your specific preference between sativa, indica and hybrid is a game changer.

Breakfast Of Champions With Sativa

My mornings start with a sativa. Sativas are uplifting, energizing and often come with a cerebral high. In the early part of the day it’s motivating. Personally, it is the best start to the day and way better than coffee, promise.

I typically spark up a creative strain like Blue Dream before taking a shower. While I smoke, I plan my day. If you ever get a chance to start off your day with a high shower do that shit. 

Sativas are good for getting high when you have things to do. Depending on the strain it can get you focused, mellow you out or teleport you into a creative mood. If you get the right strain it can do all three.

If you start your day with a workout you must try something like Sour Diesel. The energetic high boosts any athletic activity. Working out high helps zone out and focus on the workout. It most definitely helps with muscle soreness. I usually smoke before doing cardio, too. On sativa, I clank metal harder. I hardly notice how long I’ve been exercising. If you don’t have access to a gym or to cardio equipment, smoking a joint and walking around your neighborhood instantly turns it into your own National Geographic show.

Smoking On The Job: Sativa Versus Hybrid

If your job is 420 friendly, blaze up. Take advantage of that shit, but it’s imperative to be conscious of what you’re blazing. Here’s the crossover. Depending what you do for a living and how you react to different strains dictates what you can and can’t smoke at work. Sativas are good in general but if you want to step it up try a hybrid. Hybrids range from sativa dominant to indica dominant so you have to figure out your own sweet spot. 

 

I prefer a 60/40 sativa-indica blend whenever I get the chance. I like how it gets my thoughts flowing and a little bit of a body high but no sleepy high. Hybrids are the strain that keeps on giving the best of both worlds but with an effect you want to feel.

 

I like the indica attributes of hybrids for pain management. It’s a lot better to take a few puffs at your lunch break than popping pills that are gonna put you on your ass and end your productivity. 

 

Don’t get fired though. And if you learned anything from the movie Friday. You could get fired on your day off like Craig for stupid shit. So I urge you to be a responsible pothead and don’t mess it up for the rest of us blazing up at work, too.

 

Happy Hour with Hybrids

After work, I lean towards indica dominant hybrids, IDH. I like the relaxation and body high. On an IDH, I’m in chill mode listening to music. It hits differently, too.  With a body high on a hybrid, I find myself analyzing the lyrics as I feel the beat. 

 

But the highlight of my evening is that video game weed. That’s where you zone out to NBA 2K living your hoop dreams. Catch me balling throwing free throws from downtown — high AF. Hybrids give a groove type of high and video games only add to its sorcery. 

 

Finally In Da Couch

It’s strictly indica after dinner. The day is over and you’re done with all of your responsible adult shit it’s time to treat yourself. Get ready to kiss the sky.  Get that dank that OG Kush.

Indica is best for when you can unwind. It’s great for pain and it gives you that body high. Also expect to get sleepy but that’s what it’s supposed to do. The second best thing about indica is that if you smoke too much the worst that will happen is that you’ll just fall asleep. No paranoia no crazy shit you might get a bit hungry then you fall the fuck asleep.

3. CampNova-Indica

The best thing about indica is the body high that I mentioned a few times before. If you think taking a high shower on sativa was good in the morning try an indica shower in the evening. It feels like the first time water has ever touched your body and the water is from unicorn tears. It’s almost better than sex. Almost.

I Did Say, ‘Almost’

If you think taking a high shower is great you should totally have sex on indica. The high goes through your whole body. Wanna take it up a notch? Try the Queen & Pharaoh THC Arousal Oil and combine it with the Queen & Pharaoh THC lubricant oil. 

One word: Explosive.

 

I’m not guaranteeing better performance. I’m saying that it’s gonna feel even better so be cautious — try not to get her pregnant. And just as a don’t say I didn’t tell you disclaimer, try following up with sober sex just to make sure you don’t get whipped after having sex high. There’s plenty of options out there for you. Just figure out how you want to feel and when you want to feel it. It’s not a competition, enjoy your journey. 

 

5. CampNova-Pay With CC-Campnova-Cannabis-Weed-Weedmaps-Delivery-Order-Best-Credit-Card-Debit-Accept-Online-Easy-Fast

And of course, everyone in LA knows that the best way to reup or to buy weed is to get it delivered and pay for it with a credit card. Going to the dispensary is for peasants. I smoke while waiting for my cannabis. What do you do? 

 

CampNova and Hellapaxx, along with Smoke On The Water are three online sites that actually take credit cards — another game changer.

Are Edibles Helping Open Conversation On Cannabis?

CampNova Cooking Community:
How To Make Edibles Like The Pros

Edibles have been growing in popularity in the last few years partially due to the growing interest and acceptance of cannabis both medicinally and recreationally. Many people are turning to edibles as a way to get the benefits of cannabis without the smoke. The business of edibles is booming, and the chefs helping bring it to the table are here for it.

The Coolest DJ On Edibles — DJ Chef Fred

“All the edibles you can get now, don’t really reflect my edibles,” DJ Chef Fred said cooly. The thing is, he’s right. Since starting his career, Frederick Nesbitt III, known as DJ Chef Fred, has been dedicated to finding healing through food and cannabis. 

 

Chef Fred began his career in edibles with the help of Dennis Paron, an early advocate for gay rights in San Francisco circa 1995 and during his time working for a program founded by Mary Jane Rathbun, also known as “Brownie Mary.” Brownie Mary baked cannabis brownies for cancer and AIDS patients. Rathbun would bake up to 600 brownies a day.

Chef Fred credits this experience and these people for opening his eyes to the compassionate side of cannabis. Seeing the brownies and what they did for the sick patients, how it helped them eat, drink, sleep, was his first look at the plant and the good it can do for people.

 

After this experience, he went to culinary school in San Francisco in 2001. Out the gate he began working with some high profile clients, including Alex Banos, owner of the San Diego Chargers.

In 2009, his kids’ nanny was diagnosed with cancer. Chef Fred began dabbling in making edibles at home to help her with her treatment. 

 

“She wasn’t a huge fan of the sugary edibles because she was diabetic,” he explained. “So I infused chicken stock and she loved it. It helped her immensely.” 


He began regularly making infused bouillon cubes for her to add to her food at home.  Determined to help her, he continued to experiment with different edibles he could make at home. Her struggle with cancer drove his desire to help her and more people. The compassion side of cannabis, he shared, changed him. 

 

“I went from being an ‘I’ chef to a community chef,” he said.”

 At this point, his work, he added, was not motivated by money, but heart. 

 

Eventually, he opened a small company called Cannabiscatering.com. He posted his company in an ad on Craigslist and it went viral. He didn’t know if he was gonna get in trouble but he began hosting events and barbecues. 

 

Plans were put in place to open a restaurant in the hopes that the legalization would pass in California around 2010. He had a restaurant picked out but much to his disappointment, it didn’t pass so he had to pull out all the deposits and he went back to making food — somewhat underground.

Legalized Edibles

With cannabis legalization in 2016, he said the quality and regulation has significantly improved the edibles one can produce. For him, he added, it is mainly about equity, the community and trying to help everyone through his work. 

 

By 2018, Chef Fred helped draft a medical cannabis act in the Carribean and has since worked as consultant to Acres Agriculture. Acre Agriculture is a 106 acre farm in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines with a retreat. There he collected 20 samples of local traditional grown cannabis and tested for potency. His research and reports transformed into the 2018 Medical Cannabis and Plant Based Medicines Act,  were reviewed by the Grenadines ministry and prime minister.

 

Its focus is on psilocybin and cannabinoids to treat different health conditions and other alternative health-medicines that don’t yet exist. It is unique and only possible because of the federal protections he helped push.


When Chef Fred started working in the cannabis edibles industry in 1995 there was no refinement of the cannabinoids. The closest thing that you could get other than hash was RSO (rick simpson oil) or feco oil (full plant extract, made with ethanol), things that you normally wouldn’t want to be eating. 

 

Now the extracts are more refined, it used to taste really bad because they used the whole fats, the terpenes, all the different flavonoids that go with the extract of the entire flower. As the extraction process advanced through distillation and cryogenic freezing, fats, lipids, and different cannabinoids were able to be extracted through fractional distillation. Now we are able to get pure oil that’s 98 percent potency with no flavoring. As a result, edibles have become stronger with no added flavor. 

 

Now he works mainly on the management side of his company, doing less of the actual cooking. He has plans to launch a television network with around 10 different channels dedicated to all things cannabis, including a cannabis cooking competition. 

 

He credits Emery Morrison, cofounder of CampNova, for giving him an opportunity to put some of his video snippets onto a Sprint channel Morrison was curating and developing, which also led to his television debut.

Discovering Cannabis One Edible At A Time​

Annie Trimber grew up in the DC area, went to college in Chicago, and then made her way to OC California through various jobs. She became somewhat familiar with cannabis in college but “My relationship with cannabis was really able to blossom more once I moved [to California],” she said. 

 

According to Trimber, “It’s fun to be a part of a community [in California] that recognizes the medical and other benefits that cannabis can have on your life.” 

 

Trimber grew up in a household that was much more conservative on the views held about marijuana, but has discovered the edibles she makes are “a really fun way to bridge communities and open the eyes of some that might not have been open to it before,” she shared.

 

She began writing recipes with her own blog called Bacon Princess. In college she continued writing recipes for her school paper Spoon University. Her love of food and cooking translated well to her love of cannabis.

“Food is a really easy way to get people into cannabis,” Trimber said.  “that might not have been into it before, they’re not smoking, so some people might feel comfortable that way.” 

 

As far as her professional edible making life, she worked for Foodbeast for a time and was able to build relationships with some of the cannabis clients there that ultimately led to some future partnerships with various brands. She made connections with early-on cannabis brands including Kiva, which was one of the first brands to send her product to make food with. 

 

To her, making edibles is a form of creativity. “I think the biggest question to people is — ‘I know I can just smoke this straight but what else can I do with it?’ people are looking to tap into their creativity,” Trimber said, “It has become a vehicle for people to get really creative and have fun with cannabis.” 

 

Cooking helps relieve her stress and that of many, and cannabis can be seen as a continuation of this practice. “Cannabis,” Trimber said, “has always been a way to escape the day, ground myself, and really focus my efforts inwards.” 

 

In her eyes, cooking with cannabis is a natural way to connect people to the benefits that cannabis can offer in a more comfortable format. The stigma around cannabis is something she hopes decreases over time. It takes “just a little bit of scientific research to recognize that [marijuana] has so many benefits to it” she stresses. 

 

There is a growing popularity for CBD products, too. Trimber, however, said she hopes this same energy can be given to THC, as the compound effect of both can have much stronger medicinal aids. “I will always advocate for the full plant,” She says, “because I’ve done research on that and know that it can be more beneficial” than just isolated CBD. She hopes that people continue to recognize the benefits that cannabis can offer as opposed to a passing phase.

Making Edibles at Home

After meeting with the professionals, I was tasked to make edibles. This project was my first time making edibles myself. In the past friends of mine made them and we enjoyed them together. The biggest challenge I faced when eating homemade edibles is they tend to be far too strong for me, so I’m wary of eating them. 

 

When I decided to try making them myself I knew I wanted to be more mindful of how strong I made them so that anyone could enjoy them without the fear of getting too high. I also opted to follow a recipe book that a family member had given me on making edibles so I could be sure I was portioning ingredients correctly. 

 

I have always been an avid baker and cook; I found that making these edibles was very therapeutic. All of my friends were super excited to try them and I knew it would be a great way to connect with them during the pandemic as well. The great thing about edibles is that they are easy to share. I made a full batch of brownies so there was plenty to go around. 

 

I can see how edibles are a great way to bring people together and get people excited about cannabis in a way they may not be otherwise. It was such a fun experience and definitely something I’d recommend anyone who’s interested in cannabis try doing.

Boss Bae Fashionista On Tackling Goals, Launching Clothing Lines Plus 

Catapulting herself into her own online e-commerce, Kathy Smith, designer transformed herself into a full time entrepreneur. Ditching occupational therapy, Smith said she has no regrets. If anything, she said, she has learned how to use her skills to maneuver through life’s obstacles. 

 

“ Success does not come overnight, it’s a full-time grind and hustle. It’s days you might earn 20K in a week and then there are days you might earn $500 a month. Managing your money is important, if not you’ll be in the hole.”

 
What is your profession?

 I am a full-time entrepreneur. I recently completed college for occupational therapy, but I decided to dedicate my time and energy 100% into my own business. I do not have any regrets on my decision of being a business woman.

 

 

 

 

What services does your job offer?

I currently have an online business where I sell activewear clothing mens and women. I am hoping to add more to my mens collection, and add kids clothing later down the line. 

 
How did you become successful in your field?

 I am nowhere near where I want to be, however, consistency is essential in this field. Each day I am accomplishing new goals, and prevailing through every obstacle. I have mastered many skills and learning techniques that have helped me reach success, but I am still climbing up the ladder. 

“The fact that I can take my CBD and have a peace of mind/relaxation afterwards is essential. ” 

– Kathy Smith

 

 

 

 

What stresses or obstacles do you have to deal with in your profession?

The stress obstacles I deal with on a daily basis are making sure each new style I release is liked by my customers. Sometimes it can be hard picking the appropriate style for different individuals with different styles and taste. If I drop a new style and 70 percent of customers do not take a liking to it, I will lose money, and in this business who wants to lose money?

At what age, or when, did you first start using cannabis and CBD products?

 I started using cannabis/CBD products over 10 years ago, I was introduced to it in high school by some close friends.

 

How often do you integrate cannabis and or CBD into your  routine?

I use cannabis/CBD products three to five times a week depending on what type of day I have. Cannabis/CBD products calm me down after a hectic and stressful day.

 

 

 

 

 

What positive effects does cannabis/CBD have on you?

 The positive effects cannabis has on me are relaxation and peace of mind. Being an entrepreneur, you are tested daily and have different deadlines you need to meet — orders shipped, marketing and more. The fact that I can take my CBD and have a peace of mind/relaxation afterwards is essential.

 

 

What is your favorite strain of cannabis and why?

Honestly, I do not have a favorite. It might sound crazy, but each brand I had thus far has been great, but now that this question has been presented I may need to start comparing brands I like best. 

 

What is your favorite CBD product and why?

 

My favorite CBD products are the gummy kind. As a kid I always loved gummy bears, so being able to take it in that form is a major plus. 

 

What advice could you give to women that want to follow in your footsteps?

 

 If I had to give advice to all my sisters, I’d tell them to be patient. Success does not come overnight, it’s a full-time grind and hustle. It’s days you might earn 20K in a week and then there are days you might earn $500 a month. Managing your money is important, if not you’ll be in the hole. 

 

“I am constantly thinking of new ways to become a better person to everyone that is in life. ” 

– Kathy Smith

 

How has Covid affected your business and personal life?

Covid-19 has affected my business in a positive way because with people working from home they shop online more, especially because everything has been locked down. However, the downside is many people have lost their jobs due to Covid-19, which means fewer people are ordering online that are out of work.

Order delivery from brands like Broccoli Brands, PlugPlay, Cookies, Sherbinskis, Cream of the Crop, Raw Garden and the top cannabis brands in California.  Order Online or text (925) 351-5997 to place your order.

 

What has 2020 taught you?

2020 has taught me to be grateful for everything I have, you can lose it all in a drop of a dime. It has taught me to save more, you never know when you’ll need it for a rainy day.

In so many words explain what goes through a woman’s mind throughout a day?

I cannot speak on what goes through other women’s minds, but I can speak on what goes through mines. I am constantly thinking of new ways to become a better person to everyone that is in life. I always think of new business opportunities, and what I need to do to get to the next level. Honestly, my brain is always going nonstop. I wish I could turn it off sometimes, because I’ll literally drown in my own thoughts. 

 

What advice can you give a man from a woman’s point of view on romance and life?

The advice I can give a man from my POV is understanding and communication. Communication is essential and to communicate effectively you need to understand. Many times we talk and talk, but without understanding, what are we saying? That’s why understanding is important. 

 

“Success does not come overnight, it’s a full-time grind and hustle. It’s days you might earn 20K in a week and then there are days you might earn $500 a month. Managing your money is important, if not you’ll be in the hole. ”

Honestly, I am not into politics like I should be. I do not feel any type of way. I can only pray regardless if male or female that they make the right decisions, and lead by example. I do believe that one day we will have a woman as president, daily the world is changing, and I think this will happen sooner than we all think.

Back With A Bang: Comedian Juan Garcia

Comedian Juan Garcia has been a prominent comedian in the Los Angeles scene for the last 20-years. But when the city’s iconic clubs were just down due to the world wide Covid-19 pandemic, Garcia had to get creative on how to continue sharing laughs with his audience.

Executive Profile: A Skater’s High Rise Into Cannabis 

Before becoming the boss, Erin Coffey and his buddies spent their leisure time skating and smoking pot. A lifestyle, Coffey said, inspired the creative launch of High Rise Co., HRC. Although Coffey was encouraged by the multitude of compliments on his gear from other skaters, it was deeper than t-shirts and skater fashion. According to Coffey, HRC’s inception bridged skateboarding with music and art, too.

The 420 Vibe

 

That was almost 11 years ago. Noone seemed to care, HRC was a company of skaters expressing their style. But when it transformed into a media network and marketing agency in cannabis, LA-LA Land noticed. These days, as blunt ashes fall onto the ashtray, Coffey’s is easily one of the recognizable forerunners of cannabis.

 

Headquartered, in Beverly Hills, HRC represents the cannabis industry’s leading influencers and premier brands, including Stiiizy, Summit Boys and more. Before Covid-19, HRC also threw the most talked about ragers, attracting LA’s canna-socialites and celebrities ready to party and down to spark. Even Dr. Greenthumb’s, Wonderbrett, saw HRC’s vision in giving cannabis a well-rounded, good old fashion — marketing, digital media, apparel production, brand development and sales — makeover. And presently collaborating with HRC.

 

Two Girls, One Bong

The HRC gang brought cannabis culture to centerstage — the internet. It’s not that other people or influencers were not trying to appeal to those smokers who cypher in seclusion. But everyone seemed to want to be the loudest voice in cannabis, but Coffey’s was louder. 

 

He sparked conversations and dared to be bold. As a result, his team launched Two Girls, One Bong, 2G1B, on High Rise TV, HRTV on YouTube. 

 

To-date, 2G1B has hundreds of thousands of followers with millions upon millions of views. The success of the show also inspired more content. As their audience grew, HRC featured product reviews, unboxings and even joint-rolling videos. There were also smoke seshes on HRTV with prominent influencers.

They Get Higher And Higher

Last September, HRTV also held its first three and half hour —“Smoke Olympics,” featuring Cana-influencer Macdizzle and Florida tattoo artist, Andrew Samuels. 

 

His efforts cornered the attention of marijuana enthusiasts along with the “cana-curious” ones. Through this approach, Coffey ossified stoner cliches. HRC along with Coffey’s introspective is presently rewriting the lexicon of pot.

There’s a romantic, yet reverent homage with a deep respect for cannabis lifestyle and culture at HRC, which he said is the focus of his agency. Everything HRC does is strategic.

 

“We need people who are in the culture and understand the plant,” he said.

 

With attention to the cannabis industry, Coffey said he hopes he can be amongst the canna-leaders working to change the cannabis narrative.

A Tale of Two LA Gamers And Their Epic Adventures in Cannabis

In his free time, Mac is a member of the Resistance in a galaxy at war. He’ll go into battle for the day, a few hours at least. On other days, the 40-year-old dad is busy with his kids, work, errands and other daily demands. 

So when he finds the time, he spends it smoking cannabis and playing video games. In the last few weeks, he’s been hooked on “Star Wars Battlefront II”, an EA Sports game inspired by the Star Wars movie franchise.

Living His Star Wars Fantasy

The Philadelphia native, who now resides in Burbank, reached for his vape pen.

“I’m a Star Wars fan,” he said as he took a toke. “This game takes me to a place where I am a Jedi.”

This day he’s playing as Rey.

“I smoke a little bit before and during the game. It mellows me. It gets me in a [good] mood,” he added.

Meanwhile Across Town… In Northeast Los Angeles

Ify, 32, from Highland Park, finished setting up his camera to go live on Twitch, a social video streaming app where people watch people play video games. He has been streaming on Twitch for over six years.

“It started as a little thing and it blew up when I started doing more video game content,” he said as he logged into the game.

When he’s not playing video games, he’s also running around after his kid or creating content through his comedy, writing and acting. But gaming, he shared passionately, is something he’s done his entire life.

“It’s something that I thought that I’d always be doing,” he said. “But not that I would be making money from it. Definitely not. My dad didn’t think that either.”

Not All Players Can Use Cannabis and Play

 

According to Ify, despite the relaxation cannabis offers when combined with gaming, pro gamers aren’t allowed to use cannabis during the events or tournaments. Pro gaming tourneys also like the Electronic Sports Leagues, ESL, follow the same rules and regulations as actual sports by the World Doping Agency. Cannabis is listed on the organization’s list of banned substances. Although, scientifically speaking, cannabis hasn’t been pegged as a performance-enhancing drug, gaming officials think it is, making cannabis and gaming a touchy and controversial topic (1).

According to WDP’s guidelines for ESL, saliva tests are administered to ensure the participants are not under the influence of cannabis during events/competitions. Another gaming organization, Major League Gaming, also prohibits cannabis use.

Ify said he thinks that some people perceive cannabis as “performance-enhancing.” But as the Esports and professional gaming scene continues to ramp up and more funding for cannabis research underway, the question Ify is most curious about is, “If cannabis has so many benefits does it automatically violate performance-enhancing policies?”

According to researchers, “cannabis is portrayed as a substance with detrimental effects on performance.” However, scientists have also suggested, documents show, that cannabis does reduce anxiety, which in turn could help alleviate stress and pressure during competition.

Cannabis, Mac explained, for him when he uses cannabis while playing his favorite games, enhances his sensations, imagination, memory and perception of time. Ify also shared the same opinion.

 

The CBD Option

While Mac is more of the cannabis type, Ify shared that there are times after playing for hours upon hours at a time, he sometimes opts for an alternative to cannabis —CBD.

CBD, a cannabidiol, is made by extracting the CBD from the cannabis plant. People have flocked to CBD because it’s not psychoactive. Without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or pharmaceutical drugs, CBD offers relief, is perceived as a natural remedy used to alleviate a number of ailments — pain, reduce anxiety and depression, alleviate cancer-related symptoms, benefit heart health and acne (2). Ify said he sometimes uses CBD to alleviate cramping and minor aches and pains after hours of playing.

Gaming and Cannabis is like Burgers and Fries

Gaming and cannabis go together like peanut butter and jelly, rice and beans, fish and chips — well you get the picture. The long time companions have been known, by its users, to create a euphoric experience depending on the type of cannabis strains and the way it is consumed. 

So what type of cannabis are gamers smoking? It depends.

There are a variety of cannabis options that include — indicas, salivas or hybrids in the form of flowers, pre-rolls, cartridges, tinctures, edibles and more. 

 

Depending on his mood, Ify said he prefers using Sativa during a marathon gaming session. But when he’s just relaxing, he prefers an Indica.

Smoking an indica may or may not put the player to sleep if used in gaming and great to relieve stress —the chill late-night gaming with couch-lock and munchies.

Mac said he prefers an indica at night, but Sativa during daytime gaming. Sativa is more of a cerebral head high, although euphoric, it is less sleep-inducing and more energizing than an indica.
