Know What I’m Sayin’?



Know What I'm Saying?Know What I’m Sayin’?

 “Know What I’m Sayin’?”, follows twenty-something Mickey as he tries to influence the world around him for the better by getting them to smoke weed.  He believes that he can unite the people in his neighbourhood, and create people in his community. Mickey sees the stigma against marijuana and looks to show his community the positive benefits! As Mickey says in the film, “​Weed. Mary-jane. Reefer. Grass. Whatever you call it. I started smoking it when I was a teenager . It made me feel at one with the world, with nature. I thought I could connect people, make them at peace with themselves and each other. Hippie shit, huh? Yeah, maybe.​” We want to make people laugh, see themselves, their friends, pot dealers, or strangers, in the character’s, but also touch on the positive medicinal uses of medical marijuana.

Any contributions will help us get us one step closer to meeting our goal and making the film.  This goes towards insurance, snippets of animation, catering, post production and production, as well as enough rolling papers to cover our props in the shoot.  We will start principal photography at the beginning of August, and shoot on weekends throughout the month!

“Know What I’m Sayin’?” is written by actor/ writer Taylor Olson. It is focused on performance, storytelling and is full of psychedelic trips that the character’s go through. A mix between Pineapple Express, Wayne’s World and Annie Hall we get to hear the character’s thoughts as they fight the stigma of marijuana!

Check out these guys with Robert Bergman @ http://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/seeds

What We Need & What You Get

We are lucky to have access to gear and locations to cut our costs down, but this will go towards: insurance, catering, props, animation, sound mixing, and post production.  With the crew we have all volunteering on the film we will be able to use the donations and sponsorships to better the production and the quality of the final product!

Our perks  range from simple to funky. From “thank you”s in the films credits and digital copies of the film to pages of the script, associate producer credits, behind the scenes videos of the cast/ crew and prop joints from the film.

The Impact

Hopefully we will make stoners, casual weed smokers , non smokers, and those against marijuana all laugh alike. We also hope to plant a seed in viewers minds about the medicinal uses of marijuana. People will have fun watching, be relieved of stress (possibly in more ways than one) and hopefully get an abdominal workout all in one.

We also have a completely local team including local cast, crew and musicians. like:

We understand not everyone can donate, but you can help in other ways by sharing our link on social media or sharing with your friends!

Thank you so much, we appreciate your support on this journey!

Benefits of Vaping Verses Traditional Methods of Smoking Cannabis



Cannabis users have long been forced by regulations to use unfiltered products because production of marijuana into the type of cigarettes utilized by the tobacco industry was illegal. The effects of direct smoke on the lungs cannot be categorized in the positive from a health benefits perspective, which is unfortunate given the medicinal qualities of cannabis. Vaping is less immediately harmful to the lungs, because it avoids the biological confrontation to the lungs of heat and direct carcinogens. A vaporizer heats cannabinoids to a boil, rather than burning the dried flowers and creating smoke. This process forces the cannabis to release its properties without the burning of dried flowers. Under the traditional method, when the buds catch fire, the chemical mixes with oxygen to produce additional chemicals, many of which are harmful. Using cannabis oil or concentrates in a vaporizer, versus dried product, also allows for greater effectiveness of the cannabinoid delivery due to the more concentrated dose of cannabis.

So what does this mean in layman’s terms? Any form type of hot smoke on the lungs is very damaging to the lung tissue, and also delivers negative chemicals that are unnecessary and counter-intuitive to the healing properties of cannabis. Vaping has a lot more positive qualities than traditional smoking has (highly concentrated delivery system), while avoiding the negative aspects of smoking (waste, smell, and lung tissue damage).

As more states and nations decriminalize the use of cannabis, there will be more methods of delivery available to the public. Current vaporizer systems do an adequate job of delivering THC and medicinal cannabinoids to the system, without the harmful side effects of smoking. These include those other side-effects that people don’t like to talk about, such as yellowing of the teeth, exposure of family and pets to second-hand smoke, and a reduction of that “pot smell”, that isn’t always welcomed by those who make the choice to use cannabis. All things considered, vaping is the safer choice for cannabis users.

If the health reasons were not enough to change how you smoke cannabis, then consider other positives such as the cost, and being a far more efficient method of “smoking”. When using the more traditional methods of smoking (paper rolled joints, pipes, and water bongs), the heat and fire do not immediately dissipate after someone breather out a “drag” or hit. The dried flowers continue to heat and burn, and therefore the compounds within are still being released into the air. This essentially wastes 20-40% of the product as it continues to heat and burn. Using a vaporizer allows the user to conserve product and save money in the process.

When you review all of the benefits of using a vaporizer compared to the traditional way of “smoking” cannabis, vaping becomes a lot better of an option.

Bob Marley family launches “first world cannabis brand”



Bob Marley

Bob Marley’s image presides over a medical marijuana farmer’s market in California

The family of the late Jamaican reggae artist, Bob Marley has launched what they describe as the world’s first global cannabis brand.

It will be called Marley Natural and be used to sell cannabis-infused lotions, creams and various accessories.

The new brand is being developed with Privateer Holdings based in Washington state, stressing the life and legacy of Jamaica’s greatest cultural export.

It is intended to be sold in the US and possibly worldwide from next year.

Bob Marley’s daughter, Cedella Marley, said her father would welcome the move.

“My dad would be so happy to see people understanding the healing power of the herb,” she said.

Privateer’s chief executive Brendan Kennedy said a Marley was “someone who, in many ways, helped start the movement to end cannabis prohibition 50 years ago.

Brendan Kennedy from Privateer Holdings, which struck the deal

“It was just a natural fit between Bob Marley and this product. You know if you were to look for the most famous human being who ever walked the face of the earth related to cannabis, it would be Bob Marley.”

Bob Marley died of cancer in May 1981. He embraced cannabis as a key part of his Rastafarian faith and supported its legalization.

Cannabis use for recreational purposes is legal in the US states of Colorado and Washington.

Several other states may follow suit and others are permitting the sale of marijuana for prescribed medical purposes.

Vaporous Technologies J-Pen Review



MariSave.com and The THC Group were given the opportunity to try out the new Vaporous Technologies Titanium Atomizer J-Pen.

J-Pen Starter Kit

J-Pen Starter Kit

We tried out a black j-pen, and upon first glance we thought it was a very nice, small and stealth looking vaporizer. After giving it a full charge, we filled up the atomizer about half way with some freshly made material, and started in for a nice session. The hits from the J-pen are nice and smooth and are a lot easier on the lungs and throat than a normal oil rig. The material seemed to last a pretty good amount of hits before we had to reload, although we did have to stop and stir the material a couple times to get the nice even hits.

Overall, we were pretty impressed with the action that you get from the small pen sized vaporizer. At a cost of $89.99 for the starter set which includes the battery, titanium coil atomizer, USB charger, dab tool, and the travel case, it is reasonably priced to be able to just put it in your pocket and go. Replacement pieces, such as the atomizers or charger, and addons like the aquatube bubbler extension are also readily available at a small cost . A 365 day warranty is also included with the j-pen.

Thanks to Vaporous Technologies for the ability to give the J-Pen a try.
