Dear Seth Rogen,

What can we say? We love you.

Too soon?

We’re rollin’ with it…

Sure, we may be strangers, but just like the rest of the world, we’ve admired everything that’s made you the stoner king of comedy we all know and love.

We recently stumbled upon your interview with Howard Stern in which you talk about your fear of edibles. Throw a few too many bites and some intense AF Star Wars scenes in there, and we can’t say we blame you. We’ve all been there in some capacity...

But, as you know, Colorado is the top dog of the industry right now. It’s home to some sweet-ass companies with even better products. And with it, we’ve got a little proposition for you.

That’s right, Seth Rogen, we’re calling you out.

What do you say about trying an edible with some real consistency?

Bomb, right...?

Bomb, right...?

Up for the challenge? You know where to find us.

 

Sincerely,

Sweet Grass Kitchen

Feeding Your Fruit Tooth One Microdose at a Time…

The Scoop on SGK's 5mg Distillate Fruit Snacks

By Kristy Gustafson

It’s official, people. Sweet Grass Kitchen’s product line has added some color!

Don’t they look bomb dot com?!

Fruit Snacks are made with real fruit juice, non-gluten ingredients, and... hold up… no cannabutter?

Can't believe it's not (canna)butter?!

That’s right, this 5mg microdose is made with pure THC distillate, one of the first distillate infused gummies on the market, and our very first non-cannabutter product.

So what’s the deal on distillate anyway?

As a fan of our goodies, you know that both potency and consistency have always been king here at Sweet Grass Kitchen; which is why we chose to infuse our gummies with the concentrate king itself. Not only does its potency total up to 99% fully activated THC (far beyond that of average flower at 15-25%), but the tasteless and odorless nature of distillate allows for the delicious, natural berry flavors of the edible itself to shine through.

This top-shelf concentrate goes through an extended extraction and refinement process called short-path distillation. (To break things down, the science behind it all can be likened to making spirits like whiskey or moonshine.) What’s left in the end is a refined and transparent honey-like substance that visually represents just how pure it is.

So, like, how high am I gonna get?

With a potency of up to 99%, some of you might be looking like this…

Or maybe this…

Here’s where the microdose aspect comes in…

At 5mg (so just half of our recreational baked goods and double our 2.5mg Buttermelts), Fruit Snacks are the perfect edible for finding your ideal cannabis dose – or as we like to say, getting to ‘know thy groove.’

While one’s own unique groove can mean a lot of things to different people, here’s what to expect from a distillate high... For most, it’s been described as a “cerebral high.” It’s uplifting and motivating, and in the experiences of a few Sweet Grass employees, it’ll encourage you (or your significant other) to clean the entire house on a whim. (Hey, we’re not making this stuff up.) Think of it like a “Tuesday Night High” or a “Working Man’s or Working Woman’s High.” It’s light, clear-headed, enjoyable, and who knows, it may even help you or your significant other win some serious brownie points.

So, whether you were self-identifying with Ross or Brad P, we’re thinking after you give our new Fruit Snacks a try, you’ll be looking like this…

Be sure to give us a shout when you start grooving, and let us know what you think!

 

 

 

Back to the Basics: Edibles 101

By Kristy Gustafson

Since the OG pot brownie, edibles have gone through a long and messy series of sung praises and bad raps. Today, things like homogeneity tests and smart practices like "Start Low, Go Slow" have helped keep these infamous treats in good standing. The key here is education, and understanding that it's not a one-size-fits-all kind of deal. 

With that, we welcome you to your first class. 

Let's start with the basics, shall we?

'Twas the Night Before 4/20...

By Kristy Gustafson

'Twas the night before 4/20, when all through the town,

The whole industry was scurrying, the hours counting down.

Weed cookies were stacked in the Kitchen with care,

In hopes that 2 Chainz soon would be there.

The stoners were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of smoke clouds danced in their heads.

With Mary Jane in their bowls and edibles in their packs,

They awoke the next day armed with 4/20 hacks.

When out from the dispensaries arose such a clatter,

With purchases of flower and wax and some shatter.

Away to Civic Center Park, people flew like a flash,

To meet up with friends and share their sweet stash.

The sun was glowing and so were the vibes,

With laughter and love you just couldn’t describe.

When, what to their wondering eyes should appear,

But drones delivering munchies and delicious craft beer.

Like a dream, they appeared to fall from the sky.

Then they knew in a moment they were probably just high.

The rest of the day would be spent in the grass,

To the familiar melody of “puff, puff, and pass.”

The sun was finally setting, so the squads gave a whistle,

And to Cheba Hut they all flew, like the down of a thistle.

But everyone would exclaim before they took a Lyft out of sight:

     Happy 4/20 to all, and to all a safe night!

Cannabis Dream Jobs That Don't Exist Yet But Should

By Kristy Gustafson

From what we can tell, 2020 is looking to be one big year. We’re talking everything from self-driving cars, huge progress in renewable energy, new NASA missions to Mars, and even Kanye West running for president (#yikes). For those of us embarking upon the budding world of cannabis, we can expect some big things as well. According to a New Frontier report outlined by Forbes, jobs in the legal cannabis industry are on track to outpace those in the manufacturing, utilities, and government sectors, paving the way for 250,000 jobs by the end of the decade.

Naturally, this news has got us “ganjapreneurs” pretty freakin’ pumped. So pumped, in fact, we decided to get a little “canna-spired” and brainstorm on what some of these future jobs might entail. Here are a few of our favorites:

  1. Weed Adventure Travel Writer. Need we say more? This wanderlust-loving storyteller will travel the globe, and combine chill and thrill in a way this world has never seen. Looking for the best universally blood-pumping adventures to try high? They’ve got you covered.

  2. Canna-Cooking Show Host. The only thing cannabis enthusiasts love more than weed is – yup, you guessed it – food. This culinary personality will fuse the two together, sharing infused recipes and dinner party tips and tricks, as well as taste testing the creations of the world’s most up-and-coming weed chefs. Please and thank you.

  3. Expert Ganja and Video Game Tester. I think it’s safe to say, we all know a person or two who could fit this bill. This video game enthusiast knows the worlds of FIFA, Minecraft, and Grand Theft Auto like the back of their hand – especially in their favorite elevated state of mind. Each week would offer a delivery of the best bud and videos games on the market to their front door, armed and ready for their unmatched skills to take them on.

  4. Intergalactic Grower. Inspired by NASA’s latest planetary discoveries, this job would blend what every space-loving stoner nerds out to on a regular basis with their own epic cultivation expertise. First man/woman to ever grow interstellar weed? Now, that’s setting the bar high.

  5. Professional Sweet Grass Kitchen Cookie Taster. Nuff said, right? This cookie connoisseur will use their exceptional taste buds and love for all things edibles to not only assure SGK’s treats are as buttery and mouthwatering as always, but to also craft exciting, new flavors for dispensaries worldwide.
