  • Everything you need to know about the KandyPens Rubi Vaporizer
    California vape brand KandyPens is known for creating well-made, affordable alternatives to some of the hottest vaporizers on the market. With an attention to detail informing their designs, KandyPens maintain their reputation as a leading vape brand by consistently producing devices that are simple, sleek, and tech-forward. Their recently released oil and e-liquid vape, the Rubi vaporizer, is no exception.  Standing at a mere 4 inches tall, and coming in at just under $50, this chic little vape offers an alternative to the expensive pod systems utilized by similar brands. Whereas Pax offers expensive pods that come prefilled with oil from big canna-brands, KandyPens' Rubi vaporizer is an open system, meaning the pods come empty, ready to be filled with whatever oil or liquid you want. 
    View this post on Instagram A post shared by KANDYPENS (@kandypens) on Oct 10, 2018 at 3:34pm PDT In the e-cig world, the practice of breaking open pods to refill with your own oil is called “Juul Hacking,” and is common among the techie vapers that frequent online message boards. By formalizing this kind of anarchist approach to hacking the pod system in a cannabis vape, KandyPens carved out an untouched niche in the pod system matrix. And when it comes to cost-effectiveness, it's a DIY system that can't be beaten. Whether you're in the market for a new vape pen or are just curious as to what all the buzz is about, here's our take on the KandyPens' Rubi vaporizer.  What is the Rubi?  The open system design of the Rubi vape riffs on pod vaping platforms like Pax pods. By allowing users to fill an empty cartridge with the oil or e-liquid of their choosing, instead of being forced to purchase expensive pre-filled pods, they've created a much more affordable way to enjoy the convenience of pod vape products.  Complete with OCELL Ceramic Coil Technology and a 280mAh battery, one of the strongest e-cig batteries on the market, the Rubi is good for about 50 draws per charge. Strong and simple, the Rubi vaporizer is also temperature regulated and air-powered (no power button), meaning all you need to do is load the refillable 1ML capacity pod, and inhale. KandyPens even offers a ... read more

  • Meet Dennis Peron, the father of medical marijuana
    If you can consume legal cannabis, there is a small group of dedicated and passionate cannabis activists to thank, one of whom is Dennis Peron. Widely credited as the “Father of Medical Marijuana” in California, he was an activist who worked tirelessly for access to medical use cannabis, beginning with the San Francisco gay community at the height of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s and '90s. His partner, Jonathan West, died of AIDS in 1990.  Peron kept charismatic company, befriending politicians and activists like Harvey Milk, the first openly gay — and subsequently assassinated — politician in California, and Mary Jane Rathbun, aka Brownie Mary, who became well-known for baking and giving pot brownies to San Francisco's AIDS patients. He later married another activist in the medical marijuana movement, John Entwistle.
    My last photo session with Dennis Peron in Humboldt County, California in early 2017. A true OG + pioneer for legal cannabis. pic.twitter.com/IWw0CnmKuF— Curt Robbins (@RobbinsGroupLLC) April 8, 2020 Peron was born in the Bronx and grew up in Long Island, New York. After a stint in the Air Force during the Vietnam War, Peron returned to the U.S. with two pounds of smuggled weed. Soon thereafter, he moved to San Francisco's Castro District and joined Abbie Hoffman's Youth International Party (Yippies), and in 1991, he organized the passage of San Francisco's Proposition P, a resolution that allowed San Francisco residents to consume medical cannabis without being criminalized. Cannabis, violence, and the road to legalization In 1994, Peron co-founded, along with Brownie Mary and several others, San Francisco's Cannabis Buyers Club, the first public medical cannabis dispensary in the U.S. But the Cannabis Buyers Club was nothing like the clean, curated and state-legal dispensaries consumers know today. Essentially selling illegal cannabis out in the open, the collective was under constant threat of harassment, arrest — which happened many times — and even violence (Peron was shot in the leg by a San Francisco police officer).  Perhaps Peron's most well-known contribution to the current cannabis landscape is his work on California's Proposition 215, thought to have blazed a direct path to the passage ofread more
