are an affront, it is said;

yet here are flowers.

When I breath in fire,

It's a cool euphemism

for doing the weeds.

Taking The Hit Double Feature: SOG Blackberry grown by Sons of Agronomy

SOG Blackberry grown by Sons of Agronomy

Blackberry from Sons of Agronomy

by Papa J

It tastes like Blackberries. It smells like blackberries. Need I say more? Since I do, I will say this. The look of the bud had a nice bright color to it and the smoking experience was smooth. The high was mellow, not overpowering, but very peresent. I was happily surprised by another new farm and quality bud. Thanks Sons!

Taking The Hit: Babbling Brook

Fruit Bomb crumble extract produced by Apollo Grown

I hope my partner and I live near one of those stupid babbling brooks. 
Yeah, I just wanted to use 'babbling brook' even though it's corny and cliche - sue me.
Although we were watching, 'Nature's Fury', on Netflix the other evening. 
And I'm just laying there on our mattress on the wood floor.

I love wood floors, but I miss having carpet - it's better for crunches if you're a gym nut-almond by the way (I prefer to at least be a certain kind of nut).



But I'm stoned just watching this flash flood devour houses; like I would with a pepperoni and mushroom pizza from Little Caesars.
So, maybe a babbling brook ain't so sweet ya'll.

Anyways, I digress so I can continue to manifest-

Vanilla Mint Gems produced by Drip Sweets

I hope we live in a cozy cabin that's just like a hobbit hole from Tolkien's vision.
Maybe an iron spiral staircase and bookshelves galore.
Shelves filled with books, Legos, and art supplies by the way.

Ever seen 'Beauty and the Beast'? That's okay if not, cause' here's what I'm picturing.

Ya dig?

Wishin' your dreams come true too by the way. We're all in this together :)

Taking The Hit: A Poem ~ Afternoon Walk

Afternoon Walk

Hell's Fire OG grown by Renegade Roots


Meandering down the unfolding ivory tongues

that nestle into the roses, whose teeth like thorns

make one wistful for the ways of needles and pins.

Closing my eyes to the beautiful threat,

I hear ocean waves emit from creeping machines


that suckle hardened tar with the ignorance of a child.

Light flooding in, the sky reflects from the chilled windows

and in that moment, all of the world seemed within reach.

Taking The Hit: A Poem ~ In The Moonlight 🌕🌖🌗🌘🌑🌒🌓🌔

In the light of the moon,
You were my friend.
Swirling, whirling fog all around,
With a crisp nip you did ascend,
Floating, floating up from down.

Breaking silence to inhale,
Joy and wonder fill me still.
Gentle, gentle did I exhale,
Tension fading, leaving me real.

Peace fills and anger fades,
As you loose yourself in wonder.
Gaze upon the moons rays,
With the stars above, you lay under.

Taking The Hit: A Poem ~ Every Person

Vanilla Fire OG CBD distillate cartridge produced by Winberry Farms

Every person is so multi-dimensional with experiences, beliefs, thoughts, and feelings. 

Every person is a beautiful piece of art, that seems to be always changing on so many levels-From the microscopic to the cosmic. 

I'm amazed and in wonder to say the least. And I feel honored to be a part of this experience, even if there is pain sometimes. 

Because the negative space, is what helps to create the focal point of any work of art. 🎨

Every time I see a person I wonder about their reality. Their experiences, thoughts, feelings, and world views. 

What shaped them. What made them. What possibly broke them. And how did they overcome it. 

Every time I see another person, I feel like I'm seeing another universe. But only just a glimpse. What drives them every day. What force ?

Taking The Hit: My Favorite Spot

Kacey watering the Doc Beast Clone

The Boise river cuts through the rolling golden hills of Western Idaho

Cliffs of black basalt flank the waterline.

Southwest of town below the reservoir lies Surprise Valley

And at the southern crest of this valley indeed there is a surprise.

Follow the Oregon Trail along the canyonside to mount the cliffs

Near the edge is a warning of crumbling rock and abrupt drop.

There you will discover a rift in the ground

And those brave enough will follow it down

Lemon OG grown by Dicot Farms


Between the igneous rock and out

to a cold seat on the cliffside

A gentle din of engines echoes through the canyon

A cold and ceaseless wind pierces your breast

A majestic view captivates us two

Cleansing our souls anew

Taking The Hit: An Ode to the Ganja Goddess

McGrupp grown by Renegade Roots

I met her there with hungry mind

and thirsting spirit.

Sitting in bone cold

next to a snow drenched river.

I placed my lips upon her,

And took In her Earthy smoke.



become one with the rushing waters.


Hell's Fire OG grown by Renegade Roots

My thoughts become the birds,

Swooping, diving in endless sky.

Suddenly life becomes a phantasm,

A phantasmagoric wave drifting

Like my smoking haze through the woods.


I peel off my human mask,

And walk naked through the forest.

Slymer grown by Renegade Roots

Just another beast,

Howling, longingly to the silence.

At one and apart of.

A wild craving

to feast upon the flesh of truth.


The Goddess does not care

for you versions of the truth.

She is,

Raw and infinite.


She is the truth untouched.


Truck Stop Cookies grown by Renegade Roots

Untainted by experience.

Only being,

Here and now.


The delicious essence

Of this moment.

Taking The Hit: Moisture Like Smoke

Groggy eyes,

And grey-filled skies:

A precursor to seasonal depression.


An expression of life,

Upon which weather brings strife.


Sour Banana Sherb. grown by Cascade Valley Cannabis

Keep your head held high,

For this Winter will quickly roll by,

And The Flower’s echoing cry,

Will try to say good-bye,

To any blue emotions of pain, solidarity,

Or what it is to die.


No one argues with chemistry.


It’s a deficiency.


An ancient, fundamental human need,

But physiologically,

It’s our dependency on vitamin D;

A necessary nutrient that the sun supplies me.


Tangie grown by Frontier Farms

So like childhood memories,

Let's dance and sing,

And hope these skies transition from azure to ash.


An early Northwest November morning

We stand frigid in the freezing wind,

Respiring this moisture like smoke.
