The History of 420 4/16/19

The History of 420: How a group of teens from Marin County started an international holiday which led to a collaboration with one of our favorite brands, Chemistry.

Each year on April 20 people around the world celebrate the gift of cannabis. The 4/20 holiday, which has become synonymous with lighting up a joint, has been taking place for more than 40 years, but the origins of the celebration have mostly remained mysterious. Where did the term “420” come from?

 

Many people wonder about the history of 420. Some people mention a Bob Dylan song, while others believe it’s a police code indicating someone in possession of cannabis. However, the true story behind 4/20 starts out much like many epic storylines of the last century. A group of friends decides to set out an awesome adventure to find a hidden treasure.

 

History of 420 Meet The Waldos

The Waldos – Mark Gravich, Jeff Noel, Steve Capper, Dave Reddix, and Larry Schwartz, also known as the Waldos,
coined a term while attending high school in San Rafael, Cali. that would later become the international code of
cannabis. (Photo provided by Chemistry)

 

That group of Marin County friends dubbed themselves “the Waldos” and in 1971 they made it their mission to find an abandoned pot grow allegedly located somewhere up the coast from San Francisco. The group of high school buddies, Mark Gravich, Jeff Noel, Steve Capper, Dave Reddix, and Larry Schwartz, were known as pranksters and goof-offs in their hometown of San Rafael, California.

 

“We use to sit on campus and do impressions of people walking by,” Waldo Dave (Reddix) said. The hippies would often hang out together sitting on a wall outside their school, thus becoming “the Waldos.”

 

A map was given to Waldo Steve (Capper) by a friend whose brother was in the U.S. Coast Guard. The map allegedly led to a crop of abandoned cannabis plants near the Point Reyes Peninsula Coast Guard station.

 

An After-School Adventure

After school the Waldos would meet at 4:20 p.m. near a statue out front of their San Rafael High School, to get high and go on a safari to find the cannabis plot. Unfortunately, after weeks of searching, the weed grow was never found, but the 4/20 code became slang between the Waldos for “let’s go smoke some weed.”

and get high together.

The 4/20 code got out to the masses through a  connection like no other. It came in the form of an influential rock band with a devoted fan base, the Grateful Dead. Waldo Dave (Reddix) had an older brother who was friends with Phil Lesh, Grateful Dead’s bassist. In the 1970s, Reddix’s brother managed Lesh’s side bands and offered Reddix a chance to work the shows.

 

During this time, Reddix shared the slang with other roadies, band members and Grateful Dead fans known as Deadheads. The 4/20 code spread like seeds across the country during the 1970s and ‘80s. As time moved on into the 1990s, theories began to swirl about where the 4/20 code came from.

 

The True History of 420

After hearing a wild assortment of theories, the Waldos decided it was time to dismiss the rumors and other false claims. A 1997 interview with the Waldos featured in High Times magazine officially set the record straight on where 4/20 originated and boosted the Waldos story even further into cannabis culture. The article was the first ever published about the group. It wasn’t until that year that the Waldos started seeing that the code had reached mainstream American youth.  

 

“We started seeing it on signs and painted on benches,” Reddix said.

 

Today “420” is a household word. There are countless celebrations, big and small, all over the globe on April 20, as well as products and websites with 4/20 references. A Google search leads to 1.9 billion results and it all began with five friends sitting on a wall in San Rafael.

 

Not too much has changed between the group of friends in 40 years. Waldo Steve (Capper) said the Waldos are still always up for an adventure.

 

“Everywhere we go it’s still the same fun vibe,” he said. “It’s our nature.”

 

They even have their own website documenting their adventures and sharing their story, visit it here. 

 

A Special 420 Collaboration with Chemistry

 

The Waldos consider themselves, “happy stoned ambassadors” and in that spirit, they have collaborated with Chemistry, an Oakland-based cannabis extract company, for a second year to unleash a new vape cartridge.

 

The Waldos said this year’s cartridge is old school, based on some of the strongest weed found in the 1970s, Panama Red.

 

Trevar Mazza, Founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Chemistry, said the company hunted down the old-school classic and it’s unlike anything they’ve created before.

 

“The micro batch of whole flower we processed was grown by Babylon Farms up in Mendocino. They sourced the seeds from a company that specializes in land race and heritage strains,” Mazza said. “It has a refreshingly crisp sweetness with a bit of pine on the backend, pretty uplifting on the front end with a pleasant tingling sensation around the third eye. It’s a bit of a creeper though, surprisingly strong given the lower THC percentage.”

 

The 1971 Panama Red vape is extremely unique thanks to that 1:1 balanced CBD to THC ratio. You can find the limited 1971 Panama Red cartridge from Chemistry at Solful, as a special release on 4/20!

 

Visit Solful on 4/20 for your chance to take home one of the limited release Waldo cartridges, plus one of the 420 Gift Bags filled with some of your favorite cannabis products! Click here for a full list of Solful’s 420 activities.

Sebastopol Flood Sonoma County

Sonoma County Flood Update 3/3/19

To Our Community and Solful Family,

Many of you have called and emailed to check in on us in following the news of the flooding in Sonoma County, and for that, we are beyond grateful. While this affects everyone in our Solful family, Solful’s retail store was unaffected by the flood. We have been able to remain open and our amazing team has continued to help the community by talking and connecting with people in the store.

We are incredibly heartbroken that Sonoma County is experiencing another natural disaster. Our General Manager calls Guerneville home and our thoughts go out to her and everyone who has been displaced by this.

We feel for the local businesses who have been affected. Like us, they have poured their heart and soul into what they do. We understand what it feels like to feel responsible for our team and their families and can only imagine that the unknown of what’s to come next must feel insurmountable.

But we are part of a strong, resilient community, and we are going to help each other. We hope every person who is displaced, and business whose doors are closed knows that they are not alone.

For those of you who want to help, it’s too soon to know exactly when we can roll up our sleeves, but we plan on being involved and promise to let you know when and how you can help too!

But for now, we simply need you to continue to come to Sebastopol to support the businesses on Main Street, in Downtown, The Barlow and throughout every community in Sonoma County that has been affected by this. And most importantly, let people know where you are, that these businesses are open, and tell them to come too! Help us keep our community going so that when these amazing businesses open back up, they reopen to a thriving Sebastopol.

And no matter how long it takes for these communities and businesses to get back on their feet, the minute they do… GO

Go to The Barlow, go to Monte Rio, go to Guerneville, go out of your way to support every business that has had to close their doors because of the flood. That’s how we can all help them recover.

Sonoma County is a wonderful place to be, West County is an amazing community to be a part of and we feel so good about calling Sebastopol home. We invite you to get to know our neighbors and to show them the same amazing support you have shown us.

The Solful community is incredible and we couldn’t feel more fortunate to have such overwhelming support.

Talking Terpenes – What Are Terpenes? 10/10/18

What are terpenes and why should you consider them when shopping for cannabis?

You may be drawn to high THC or it might be that you choose cannabis flower based on the aromas. But what are terpenes and why should you be choosing cannabis based on them? You’ll have to keep reading to find out…

 

Our friend Mary Jane can tell you a lot about herself, but you will have to listen intently, with your nose. She speaks not with words but with Terpenes! – Travis Shrum

 

What are cannabis terpenes

 

My name is Travis. I’m Health + Happiness Consultant at Solful, Sonoma County’s premier cannabis dispensary, and I love terpenes. So what are terpenes and why do we think they’re so amazing? Terpenes are bio-active aromatic molecules found in cannabis and all over nature. Terpenes are produced in trichomes, the sticky glandular stalks that coat flowers. These sticky trichomes are responsible for the “frosty” appearance found on cannabis buds. Trichomes also contain cannabinoids like THC and CBD.

 

Terpenes are the aromatherapy of cannabis!

Some cannabis strains make you feel energized and creative while other types make you sleepy and tranquil. Have you ever wondered why that is? Terpenes! Put simply, since each terpene is different each one will have a different effect on your body. But what makes terpenes elicit these different responses from your body? Think about your most recent visit to Solful and that exciting moment when a Health + Happiness Consultant, maybe it was even me, opened a flower jar for you. The flower released its unique profile of terpenes into the air which was analyzed by your nose and as a result, you felt a sensation.

 

Take the terpene linalool, if you smell a strain high in linalool it may be reminiscent of lavender which can have a calming effect… similar to lavender essential oil. Terpenes are the aromatherapy of cannabis, isn’t that fascinating?!

Learning this nuanced chemical language can be challenging, but just like someone studying to become a sommelier or learning to pick out toasted oak and dark fruit flavors in wine, it simply takes practice. Don’t worry, because the quizzes are open book. You just have to find a cannabis dispensary that focuses on terpenes, like Solful. At Solful we provide profiles showing the levels of the most abundant terpenes found in specific cannabis strains. And if you want to know more, just ask!

 

Why are terpenes important?

Cannabis uses these terpenes as an advantage in nature to ward off predators and attract pollinators. Cannabis produces over a hundred varieties of terpenes. For us humans, these molecules provide a beneficial biological attraction to plants. Go back to the caveman days, and this biological attraction naturally led us to plants that were safe to consume and steered us away from those that weren’t. 

Each terpene provides unique aromas and physiological effects. The synergistic combination of terpenes and cannabinoids is credited with the many therapeutic properties in cannabis. This synergistic combination is known as “The Entourage Effect”.

 

What is the “Entourage Effect”?

You can learn about the “Entourage Effect” in the Solful Field Guide! Our friends at Kiva Confections also did a great job of breaking down the “Entourage Effect” so we’ll let them explain it.

 

Cannabis contains several hundred compounds, including dozens of minor cannabinoids, various flavanoids, and terpenes. While many of these compounds have specific healing attributes, it is believed that when combined the theraputic impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its single-molecule parts.

 

Can’t wait to smell terpenes?

Some of the most common terpenes found in cannabis are likely hanging out in your kitchen or garden.

Cannabis Terpenes Limonene

Zest a lemon and you will quickly be greeted by limonene, a terpene known for its stress-relieving properties. Many people find that limonene also has mood-enhancing benefits. Limonene is often found in uplifting cannabis varieties.

Cut open a ripe Mango and take in the earthy sweet fruit containing the terpene myrcene. This terpene is credited with the notorious couch-lock effect experienced with certain types of cannabis.

 

TRAVIS’ TERPENE TIP:  If you buy high THC cannabis you’ll love myrcene.  It’s believed that myrcene enhances our ability to take in THC allowing us to reach higher levels of elevation without higher levels of THC! As a result if you’re looking to get “high” you should be looking for cannabis strains high in myrcene.

 

Cannabis Terpenes Beta Caryophyllene

Crack some black pepper to release another fascinating terpene, beta-caryophyllene. It has been discovered that beta-caryophyllene seems to interact with the endocannabinoid system on its own, so it shows great promise as an anti-inflammatory agent and a dampener of anxiety.

 

Want more terpenes?

Let’s keep talking! Introducing, Talking Terpenes, a monthly installment all about the world of terpenes. Each month I will be highlighting a specific terpene and teaching you all about its tastes and effects. I’ll be sharing recipes, shaking up “cocktails”, and filling your mind with cannabis knowledge. And together we will constantly be answering “what are terpenes” because the next time you’re browsing the flower wall, I want you to be talking terpenes. 

I’m Travis… and I love terpenes!

Travis is now able to share what he learned at Oaksterdam every day through his work with Solful. As a Health + Happiness Consultant Travis works closely with guests to educate them on this dynamic plant. He’s excited to be a thought leader in this emerging industry and sincerely enjoys sharing his knowledge.

We totally support you taking a trip to outer space with these 10mg each gummies because we know you’ll enjoy the ride.

 

Why We Love Space Gems: Simply put, it’s a fun high. Being one of the smallest companies we work with, we love supporting them. This family-owned company has been making edibles and hash for years up in Humboldt County and certainly has their recipe dialed in. Plus they’re vegan and free of all those nasty additives and coloring.

Treatwell CEO Incident 6/25/18

Regarding our Relationship with TreatWell

 

Solful was founded with a particular set of values rooted in our mission of “Cultivating Health and Happiness in Our Community”, and it is incredibly important that the brands we carry align with our values. As such we have decided to halt all future orders of TreatWell in wake of their CEO’s recent actions.

 

We also want to take a moment to explain why we have chosen to sell through TreatWell’s products rather than to have them destroyed. While we are incredibly disappointed and disheartened by her actions, we have many customers that rely on TreatWell. We are currently working incredibly hard to find a replacement so that our customers do not go without their medicine. Until that replacement is secured our existing inventory will remain on the shelf, and we will be donating proceeds from TreatWell products to a non-profit.

 

We are committed to educating and empowering our community and will continue to have the highest standards when choosing the products we put on our shelves from both a quality and values perspective.

 

If you have any questions regarding our decision to halt ordering TreatWell products please feel free to reach out to our team directly – community@solful.com.

 

Sincerely,

 

Eli Melrod, CEO

 

Changes Coming to Cannabis – July 1, 2018 6/23/18

 

With all the sales and promotions going on we wanted to take a moment to explain why this is happening. To start, there’s nothing to worry about as far as Solful is concerned. We are incredibly fortunate that Solful is thriving, which is largely due to the support of our community and our friends and family – like you!

The reason we are “liquidating” much of our inventory is simply that as of July 1st packaging regulations are changing here in California.

So… what is changing?

The state of California is working hard to ensure that cannabis products undergo a rigorous testing process, and have introduced new testing requirements. In addition to the new testing requirements, every product on our shelves, after July 1st, will need to be individually packaged in child-proof, tamper evident, resealable containers, with extra warnings to remind you to keep your cannabis products away from children.

 

Is there anything wrong with our current products?

No! Solful has always gone above and beyond what’s been required and we have self imposed a strict product standard. We continue to stand behind the products on our shelves and simply need them to find good homes!

 

Will all your favorite products be on our shelves re-packaged on July 1?

We certainly hope so, but there may be a few empty spots. What we do know is that our partners, many of whom are local small business owners, are working around the clock to get their testing and packaging up to the new state requirements. The Solful team is doing everything we can to help them, because just like you we love the products we carry!

 

What happens if I come in and my product isn’t in stock?

We’d be happy to take down your name and number and let you know when your product comes back.

 

What can I do to help?

Keep supporting local pot farmers and small purveyors. They’re working hard to meet state regulations, and in the end, having a regulated system that ensures safe products will continue to move the cannabis industry forward.

 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out!

Marlon Reviews: Banana Bread by Esensia Farm 5/24/18

Banana Bread Cannabis Review

Banana Bread by Esensia Farms

It’s nearly midnight and I have, admittedly, been smoking since I got off of work. Although this is a Saturday night, I really wanted to give my body a chance to relax and settle into the peace in the confines of my domicile nestled comfortably in my computer chair. After a long day of work and talking about weed I couldn’t get my mind off of the last banana bread nug I had sitting at home, almost like the leftovers from last night you couldn’t wait to grub on but found that your cousin/roommates ate it.

This Banana Bread cultivated by Esensia Farm, of which always impresses me with their concentration on terpenes and healthy heavy buds. Ever since I tried Esensia Farm’s Rum Punch #10, which I picked up from Solful, I have been a true believer in their passion for different new types of terpenes. Rich in both alpha and beta pinene on the nose the blend of pine and candy is disorienting on the senses, very similar to the Candyland from TSO Sonoma in terms of aromatics. I love how stimulating on the nose Banana Bread is and it truly does yield a tropical accent on the tongue but is heavily stoney and heavy on both the head and the body – almost as heavy as Gorilla Glue perhaps!

Either way, I love how heavily physical this inebriation is and it sits on the cusp of drowsy.  Next time I would love to smoke this flower in a blunt or a backwood. This flower hits hard and should be treated as a heavy hitter in a blunt.

Peace out, this flower hits!
