Linda reviews an HBG (Hand Blown Glass) inline bong

I am in love with this beautiful HBG inline bong!  So easy to clean, and packs a real punch!  This is made of thick, high quality glass (I want to say Schott Duran like the other great pieces) – made in America – “CALI CERTIFIED”! 😀   I paid less for this piece as I got a deal, but you can find similar inlines of this brand at local headshops or online for probably around $250.  I take a few big puffs with this, but must say I love using this mostly with my KO Titanium Domeless nail.  Either way, it’s a great piece that is easy to clean and very sturdy and will last you a long time!  That is, if you’re not a bong murderer 😉


The Science and Politics of Marijuana

Here is part one of “The Science and Politics of Marijuana” – part of a series of talks from the MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) 25th Anniversary conference back in 2011.  All 7 parts can be found on YouTube through the video below.  Videos feature Donald Abrams MD, Lyle Craker PhD, Sue Sisley MD, Martin Lee, Clint Werner, Fred Gardner, Amanda Reiman PhD MSW, Dale Gieringer PhD, Debby Goldsberry, & Steph Sherer and is moderated by Allen Hopper JD (ACLU of Northern California).


The discussions you’ll hear in the videos go into detail on the topic of the science and politics of marijuana – what has been researched and discovered, and how politics is affecting the information from being released or used properly.  Over 10 years ago, an important government study was released regarding a few specific patients’ use of marijuana as recommended by their doctors. The Institute of Medicine, a branch of the National Academy of Sciences, issued what was then the most comprehensive analysis of the scientific and medical literature about cannabis, and it stated, “The accumulated data indicate a potential therapeutic value for cannabinoid drugs, particularly for symptoms such as pain relief, control of nausea and vomiting, and appetite stimulation.”  A vast number of doctors and other medical professionals continue to caution about harms that may result from smoking marijuana, though these need to be weighed against the other harms that patients could be facing. In the political realm, the debate over the legal status of medical marijuana continues on.  The videos run about 339 minutes in total – check them out at your leisure!

An update from Linda :D

Hey, it’s Linda here! I know I have been slow on getting reviews done, mostly as I have been slow in acquiring new pieces. I wanted to at least make a video to say hello and give you all an update as to what’s been going on here lately.


I believe I mentioned the Cannabis Cup but forgot to mention the Medical Cannabis Cup here in the Bay Area in June – if you’re around, you should make plans to attend!

Either way, check out the video and don’t forget to head over to my Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/itsweedandbombs) for my most updated posts 🙂

Linda reviews the Incredibowl i420 (old review)

I love my Incredibowl i420, and someone recently asked about mine and I realized the old review I did for the Incredibowl i420 was hosted on a site that no longer exists, so I thought I’d share it with you again!


This is one of my very first reviews – as you can see my hair grew a lot and I lost some weight since then 🙂
I still absolutely LOVE my Incredibowl – it still packs a punch, still easy to clean and use, and is just.. well, phenomenal! I still use my mini (the m420) as well. Great pipes!

New York Times Op-Doc – The Fight Over Medical Marijuana

This is an older video from late last year (2012) highlighting the fight that Chris Williams, a medical marijuana grower in Montana, has been battling. At the time this documentary was made, Chris Williams was facing life in prison. As of today, he has been sentenced to 5 years in prison. Part of the atrocity of this case is that a federal judge barred Williams from using his medical marijuana defense.
