Top 3 Reasons to Join the MassRoots Community

Top 3 Reasons to Join the MassRoots Community

April 17th, 2015, @Sparkitland and I were tuning in Erin Burnett Outfront when a two and half minute segment ran on MassRoots, one of the largest and most active social networks for the cannabis community. The segment was entitled “New app is like Facebook for Pot Lovers.”  (source: CNN). MassRoots ($MSRT) is one of the largest and most active communities of cannabis consumers with over 275,000 users. People use the app to find smoking buddies, share their cannabis experiences and stay connected with local dispensaries.

As a social media user and supporter of the cannabis movement, it only seemed logical to download the app and explore being part of this growing community.

As you would expect-  when you join #MassRoots your feed will be filled with pictures and images of different types of weed, joints, cannabis plants, smoking devices, munchies, and more. But what I found interesting was that I personally could take this social network beyond the smoke and toke. I see an opportunity to be on a social network where I can be who I am through and through. I am an intelligent person, who works hard, and is driven both professionally and personally. I have a family, I love to travel, and I am a productive member of society (who also happens to enjoy smoking pot). I am tired of living in a closet because society believes smoking pot is the action of someone who is lazy, unmotivated, and dysfunctional. Weed is not a dirty word, it’s my outlet and my glass of wine at the end of the day. It helps me with my medical aliments:  my back pain, migraines, and my stress.  I am successful and good person...  and I am excited that @MassRoots has created a community where I can be exactly who I am, without shame.

Here are my Top 3 Reasons to Join the MassRoots Community:

  1. MassRoots Blog: MassRoots Blog offers a variety of topics appealing to all aspects of the #SparkitLifestyle. They have articles on Health, Art, Culture, Grow, Legalize, Industry etc. Their dedication to encompassing all aspects of what it means to be part of the cannabis community is demonstrated in the content they generate. 
  2. MassRoots Vision: The #MassRoots app functions similar to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter . While the product is not perfect: limited ability to share content, glitches on posting, commenting and likes. I see the vision of where MassRoots is moving. There is a community of people hidden away. MassRoots offers a platform to bring people out of the shadows and come together to support a movement that is much greater than the individual.
  3. MassRoots Opportunity: As mentioned above I see this social platform as a network to be who I am-  as an entire person. You and I both know if I was sharing a photo and tagging it #WakeNBake or #PuffPuffPainGone on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram more than half my network would be shocked,  offended, or look at me in a different light. #MassRoots offers a place where I can generate, share, and interact with content in a judgment free zone. It offers a community where I can be @SenoritaSparkit and myself without fear or judgment or being mislabeled.

The Weed Dilemmas of a Germaphobe

 

I  love to smoke weed.  Smoking a joint or a bowl has always been my top choices.  However, there is only one major downside to these delightful burn session with friends, germs. Germs are one of my top weed dilemmas when sharing smoking devices with friends (and strangers).  The idea of other peoples germs and saliva on the devices I use creeps me out. Consider this, when you french kiss someone for 10 seconds, you exchange 80 million germs (Womans Health). Now while you are not kissing your devices, germs are still pass (especially when smoking joints).

Often times when I am in social smoking setting joints are the preferred method. My secret hope is that I can be the first to puff and pass. And hopefully by the time it gets back to me, the sweet smoke has put me in a state of mind that I can really care less about the wet germ filled wrapper or lipstick stains. So here are some tips I keep in mind when smoking socially. 

1) Don't Smoke With Sick People: The first may be obvious, but avoid sharing a joint, bowl, bong or any device with people who have a cold, just sneezed (and did not wash their hands), and even people you do not know that well.

2) How To Best Hold The Joint: I choose to place my fingers on the area of the joint in which I inhale. This way,  my lips have a barrier between my mouth and the paper... sparing me direct contact with the part everyone has been putting their mouth on. 

3) Don't Be Shy: When smoking out of a bowl or bong. Wipe down the mouth piece before it gets to you. Don't care what people think of you. 

4) Clean Your Bong/ Pipe After Every Session: The 420 Times wrote a great artcile on Germ Proofing Your Bong. It may seem like a pain in the ass to clean your piece after everytime you smoke, but you decrease your risk of getting sick. 

Again, I might be an outlyer in this community. But I have to think some of you out there agree with me. Feel free to share your tips and tricks with @Sparkitland  and  @SenoritaSparkit

Sparkit,

Calana

Magic Flight Launch Box Review: Saving Health and Wealth

describe the imageHave you heard of the Magic Flight Launch Box? It has been deemed the world's best portable handheld rechargable herbal vaporizer.

I bought my first piece at a music festival when I was 15. It cost $60, a nice glass bowl that I still use to this day.

But I'm not using it as much. About a year ago, a friend of mine bought the Magic Flight Launch Box off their website. He's more of an aficionado when it comes to the this stuff, and I wanted to write this off as a fancy toy that I couldn't possibly use, but when another friend bought one a couple of months later, I couldn't resist looking into the idea more seriously.

One night I took a chance. I hoppe onto Amazon.com and found a Magic Flight Launch Box for around $70. It arrived the following week. It came with a maple box vaporizer, two pre-charged batteries with charger, a cleaning brush and draw stem, a nice tin box and very clear instructions. Oh, and a lifetime warranty.

I was impressed by the packaging and clarity around my new toy. I'd liken it to opening up a new Apple product. There was no whoosh when the box came off, but you get the idea.

So I started using it. Over the last few months, here are two things that I noticed:

1) I need a lot less substance. I only have to take one or two small hits to start feeling something. My supply now lasts a lot longer. Unlike the ash one might find in a joint or bowl, I can save the vaporized scraps from my Magic Flight Launch Box for edible treats. Special cookies here we come. I feel like I'm getting full value here.

2) The high is smooth and consistent. With one or two hits, it comes on in about 3-5 minutes and lasts a few hours. I find myself able to work out. To cook. To read and write. To talk on the phone. It's become a kind of enabler for me, allowing me to sit at a desk and crank through busy work. I don't need it, but it makes focusing on the task at hand a little easier.

With the Magic Flight Launch Box's design and various accroutements, it's an easy product to use, clean and store. Highly recommended if you're not keen on shelling out a few hundred bucks on a much larger vaporizer. Upgrade your device. Save your money! Save your lungs!
