Savage Cannagarz – Hand Made Filters & Cannagar Molds

There are many ways to consume cannabis as many of you know. There are the traditionalist cannabis consumer and there are the more adventurist tokers. I am more on the adventure side, always curious to try new things. A Cannagar isn’t necessarily a new thing, but what Savage Cannagarz is doing put’s a twist to the game.

Savage Cannagarz Are Here

So if you are new to the Cannagar experience, that’s okay. The term is something that is relatively new but the concept has been around for a long time. You may remember them as Thai Sticks from back in the day. Savage Cannagarz is recreating this timeless way to smoke, right here in Las Vegas.

Savage cannagarz cannagar mold

You start with premium cannabis flower and cannabis concentrates and let the Savage Cannagarz Cannagar Mold do the rest! Randy says he likes to let his Cannagarz dry/cure for a few days before they are ready to smoke. You can smoke them right out of the mold, but for the optimal cannagar experience, let that thing age for a few bruh.


Custom Blunt Filters

Not only does Randy make these cool Savage Cannagarz molds, he makes custom blunt/joint tips. Check out this mammoth one pictured below. This is actually a very cool concept on this one. It’s like your own person blunt tip….so no more sharing those half ounce challenge with every set of lips at the festival. Slide this tip over and puff tuff!

He creates them in all sizes and designs. Holler at him to design you or your brand a custom filter. You see he has done them for Breal TV, Vegas Cannabis Magazine & more. Some of these filters can take hours or days to create. They are truly a one of a kind, hand made product.

Kurupt Meet and Greet at NuLeaf Dispensary Las Vegas

If you are like me, you love 90’s rap music….if not I understand!! But even if you don’t like rap music you are probably familiar with the name Kurupts Moonrocks. Moonrocks are high quality cannabis rolled in cannabis oil and them rolled in kief. If you have ever tried them, you know they burn a long time and hit hard!

Kurupt at NuLeaf Cannabis

A Friday day night in Las Vegas, just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. The crowd was decent for the meet and greet. A few other vendors like Moxie, Evergreen Organix & Official Genius were there. I got some decent drone footage as you see below. It was great seeing folks like The Sober Junkie, iPasspot and others!

Kickin’ Moonrocks

We got a chance to chop it up really quick with him and got an autograph. One of the highlights was a friend of the podcast, local artist Rekles Reks was able to gift Kurupt a painted canvas. It was really cool to see and Kurupt and his people were very grateful for the gift, I thought that was huge.

Check out the really cool 1963 Chevy Impala with the Kurupt’s Moonrocks emblems. That car is owned by KandyK.six.Tre follow here on the Instagram. You can see this vehicle at every Kurupt meet and greet in town!

Kurupt’s Moonrocks are being produced in Nevada by Alternative Medicine Association under their license. They are growing some fine cannabis and creating some great extracts. You can also find Vader Extracts under the AMA license in Nevada.

Investing in Cannabis with Alternative Harvest ETF

Investing in Cannabis…sounds like a great idea right?  But where does one start?  That was the question I have had for a while now.  I know you can sign up for a E-Trade account and start trading penny stocks with a $500 investment.  But is that really a good investment? I know a lot of us are not investing in our future because they don’t know where to start.

Investing Your Money

So you know that creepy feeling when you are scrolling through social media and you see an ad pop up in your timeline for a service our product that you were talking about but never actually searched for?  That happened to me last while surfing the Twitters.  I see an add come up talking about “Round up your purchases into investments” for a company called Acorns.  Cool idea….you make a purchase with your debit card for $4.20, Acorns will round up the purchase to $5.00, take .80 cents and invest it.  Pretty cool idea right?  You can sign up for an Acorns Account Here

Please use the link above if you sign up, we get a referral bonus for it!  (Thanks in advance)  We signed up for an Acorns account and will see how it goes.  That rounded up change could make a difference 15-20 years down the road.



Alternative Harvest ETF

After doing some research on Acorns I found Stash.  Stash is a more hands on approach to investing and this is where we found Alternative Harvest ETF.  So…first off…you need to know what a ETF or Exchange Traded Fund.  Here is a link to read more about ETF’s

alternative harvest etf

A quick definition of a ETF

An ETF, or exchange-traded fund, is a marketable security that tracks an index, a commodity, bonds, or a basket of assets like an index fund. Unlike mutual funds, an ETF trades like a common stock on a stock exchange. ETFs experience price changes throughout the day as they are bought and sold. ETFs typically have higher daily liquidity and lower fees than mutual fund shares, making them an attractive alternative for individual investors.

Because it trades like a stock, an ETF does not have its net asset value (NAV) calculated once at the end of every day like a mutual fund does.

So yeah blah blah blah….That doesn’t mean a whole lot to a new investor I get it.  Please read, watch some YouTube Videos and get yourself informed on ETF’s before you star investing.

That brings me to Alternative Harvest ETF.  Alternative Harvest ETF is a publicly traded stock that goes by MJ.  Alternative Harvest ETF is a group of cannabis industry stocks that act as one trade-able, sell-able stock.  Read more about it here www.etfmj.com

This is a very high risk stock, so do your homework.  I am investing small amounts at a time into Alternative Harvest ETF, but also spreading out my investments to other ETF’s that Stash offers.

alternative etf

As you can see the ETF has had it’s ups and downs.  It has only been traded for a year or so.  This is an aggressive stock that has high risk/high reward payoffs.  Just remember you could lose all the money you invest too, so diversify that portfolio.


Cannabis Stocks

Alternative Harvest ETF combines some of the largest cannabis companies in the space.  Companies that you will be investing includes:

GW Pharmaceuticals

MedReleaf Corp

Canopy Growth Corp

Just to name a few.  Get the whole list at www.etfmj.com

Again, DO YOUR HOMEWORK!  There is potential to lose all of the money you invest with Stash.  An also remember, investing in cannabis is going to be a marathon, not a sprint.  These investments will hopefully pay off over time so you have to be patient.

Rekles Reks Las Vegas Artist – Puffing & Painting One of a Kind Art Pieces

I am a huge fan of street art, always have been.  In my youth may or may not have carried around a few paint markers in my back pack.  My best friend growing up Shane (RIP Brother) was arrested for tagging one night.  We were out and he was tagging a pay phone (yeah a pay phone) with a marker when someone says “HEY YOU KNOW THAT’S ILLEGAL RIGHT!?” We panicked and went for Shane’s car.  The concerned citizen was able to get the license plate number and a couple of Missoula, Montana’s finest were their waiting for us when we got to his house.  They separated us and tried to pull the ol’…”your friend already admitted to doing it so just tell us the truth” bullshit mind games they play.  Questioning minors without their parents being present…typical crooked cop bullshit….but I digress….

Shane was ultimately arrested and forced to do community service.  His tagging had been all over our high school as well.  When the school found out it was him, he was suspended.  Funny though, he was also a writer for the school news paper..only a few close friends knew of his arrest and we never told anyone because of our similar hobbies.  He actually interviewed himself for the paper, what it’s like in the mind of tagger….but no one knew it was him that he was interviewing!  Long ago and again RIP Shane.

Rekles Reks Las Vegas Artist

We had a chance to really get to chat with Rekles Reks during a Stanley Cup Finals event earlier this week.  We had seen his art online but never in person.  He is really doing some amazing work on canvas.  He does more than just canvas though!  We had the opportunity to ask him a few questions about himself and his art.  Enjoy!

Interview with Rekles Reks
When did you start drawing/painting?

I was already doodling since the age of 3.  Coming from a family of artist art runs in my veins.  I first starting painting when I met my love graffiti at the age of 7.  Back in 1991, my brother was 14 and a graffiti artist.   I Hung around him & all his friends so I got introduced to the graffiti culture.  I started hittin up trains, walls etc, by The age of 15 I was getting in trouble and I had to make a choice.  So i started painting at friends back yards, anywhere I could get consent To perfect My craft.  I always knew i wanted to become a professional artist.

Where do you get your inspiration to paint?

I get all my inspirations for my art from my grandparents & parents. Growing up in Los Angeles I seen them struggle but always managed to do the smallest things.  At the time I thought it was normal but now as I’m older I’m like wow my grandmother bought me a coloring book and crayons when she couldn’t afford it or could of bought some food or herself, something.  But she knew I loved art all my family knew it. So now I can provide for them!!! Much love to my abuela, abuelo, ama, apa, love you!!

How long does a art piece take  you to create?

It depends how I’m feeling that day.  I paint at least 3 paintings a day so I stop one start another one.  But really for a piece like the Cheech I did maybe 2hrs or less!

What is Paint & Puff?

It’s exactly what the name is. You sign up for a 2 hour class you pay $25 if your a local you get a canvas and paints. They let you borrow a dope vape pen and give you a free cbd cartridge to puff on while you paint. But it’s a one stop shop!  We have a merch room, a lounge room, 2 painting rooms, a game lounge and a snack bar. Plus, you can see all of my art hanging up and purchase it.  Along with my fellow local artist paintings and art work.
