Baked and Awake
About This Show
Baked and Awake is a Pacific Northwest based YouTube show (and soon to be podcast) where we talk about cannabis and the lifestyles of the very regular yet incredibly interesting people who cherish it.
We'll cover a wide range of weed related topics including strain reviews, general history of the plant and its many uses, recipes, cultivation, extraction and concentrates, and much more. If we have an over arching goal, it is to normalize the perception of daily cannabis users and what it means to truly tap into the amazing potential of this special plant, prized among diverse cultures from time immemorial as sacred, strong medicine.
While taking this journey together, we will explore some of the myths, mysteries and misconceptions about not only this, our favorite plant- but indeed the very world we live in.
Wait, what? Well, sure! We're gonna be (moderately) stoned, so we might as well solve the world's problems (Or at least talk about them!) while we are feeling philosophical! Get ready to talk about everything from Sasquatch to Bottomless pits. Haunted places and unexplained disappearances. Bilderbergers, Masons, Scientologists- nobody's safe from the scrutiny of our green tinted lenses. In short- if it's weird, wild, or far fetched, we are probably gonna spend some time on it.

Impression: Attractive in both color and aroma, this (in this case) Sativa leaning hybrid- flavor is good. Dabbed at low temps or puffed through a nectar collector, the Honey colored Wax, which has a shiny skin that gives way to a biscuit batter crumble inside presents us with a durable Citrus topnote- still smelly and tasty days after opening the provided glass jar with hard silicon lid (I moved the wax into a full silicone stash jar the better for carrying around) That opening overtone is give way to a clean finish with a mild vapor and little to no cough reflex.

At this particular point in time, possession of cannabis prod¬ ucts is illegal in the state of California as well as many other places in the world. The author and publishers can¬ not advocate breaking the law and suggest strongly that before beginning, the alchemist carefully check the man¬ made laws which govern the part of the planet in which he intends to perform the operations described herein. Recent legislation by some of the more progressive legal bodies, medical findings proving that TUC is not harm¬ ful, and the results of the California Marijuana Initiative and many polls of public opinion are showing the canna bis lovers of the world the light at the end of the tunnel manifesting in the complete de criminalization of cannabis. The cultivation of marijuana and the refinement of its preparations has concerned alchemists and hedonists on this planet for centuries. Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica are both powerful allies. The body of the plant itself serves as a link between the physical plane and a host of Spirits of exceptional wisdom and subtlety. When the plant is ingested these qualities manifest in the mind of the worshipper, unlocking the storehouse of Wis¬ dom within and revealing the hidden springs of pleasure. Smoking or eat¬ ing the leaves or flowers is usually sufficient to bring about the desired state, although it seems inherent in the nature of Man to search for more concentrated forms of the drug which are stronger, more pleasant to in¬ gest, or are more desirable in some other way. Thus it is that in every cul¬ ture the technology of that period is applied to the work of the trans¬ mutation. As technology has evolved, so have the outward trappings of the operation, even though the principles underlying the operation remain con¬ stant throughout time and cultural differences. In primitive situations the refinement is carried on manually, the flowers being separated from the less psychoactive seeds, stems and leaves. Resins are extracted by simply rubbing the plant with the hands and then scraping the resin from the hands with the fingers. Water extractions are accomplished by boiling the plant parts in water, letting the water evaporate in the sun, and then col¬ lecting the residue. In cultures advanced to the state of mechanical tech¬ nology, devices are used to this end. This might involve sifting the dried resin through mesh cloth, or mechanically pressing the resin into slabs. In cultures where the ingestion of the plant is accepted and desirable, these techniques become the formulae of power, and hashmakers are revered as Priests of the Holy Sacrament. In other situations their work is misunder¬ stood, and they are branded as criminals to be persecuted. Yet their work Continues. Visit the Baked and Awake Teepublic Store!
