The effects of a given cannabis strain, as well as the amount and method by which you consume, are only part of your experience. Being conscious of your mindset (Set) & physical and social environment (Setting) is a key part of a mindful approach to cannabis consumption. Setting an intention and staging the right environment before you consume cannabis help you achieve your desired outcomes and fulfilling experiences.
Many of us are familiar with the old phrase, “The sum is greater than the parts.” It means the individual components of something aren’t all that significant, but when you put them together, you get a result that is more powerful and has a greater impact. While the phrase is old, it’s relevant in new ways, more specifically, we’re finding that cannabis is made up of a lot of little parts that produce something great. In the world of cannabis, this isn’t just a vague concept. It’s called the “entourage effect.”
As of 11/15/2019, Apple has removed all vaporizer-related apps from its App Store.
Joe Dolce, the former Editor-in-Chief of Details Magazine, wrote a fascinating new book about cannabis titled, Brave New Weed. It seems almost as if the collective consciousness speaks through him on this entertaining journey through the plant and its history. Brave New Weed is Available to Purchase Here “Brave New Weed, a loving rethink of all things marijuana, is likely to be a trusted hitchhiker’s guide to this new universe.” New York Times “One of the most fascinating accounts of the state of marijuana. A charming, honest look into pot’s past – and what that says about it’s future”. Rolling Stone “This book is not only endlessly sourced and entertainingly written – it contains important information about how to proceed into the post-prohibition future of weed in America”. Amazon Review Firefly’s Co-Founder, Mark Williams, recently joined Joe Dolce on his podcast, Brave New Weed, and discussed the many surprises to designing a high fidelity vapor experience.

Who wouldn’t want to spend a night with a Firefly vaporizer looking up at the stars? This Fueled by Firefly project with Portland, Oregon star photographer Ben Canales was a match made in the cosmos! Fueled by Firefly is an artist series started by Firefly Vapor to celebrate the intersection of art, technology, and culture. At Firefly, we see ourselves as more than a technology company. Our innovation is fueled by our active participation in a wide community of designers, developers, and creators. Firefly strives to stimulate creativity and conversations about the concepts that inspire us. And, wow, does Ben‘s work inspire us! Ben talks about why the stars are his ever-burning muses: As our city lights spread blocking the view of stars, and app notifications replace the constellations humans used to point and share at night; we- as a people, as a species- need the stars more than ever. We’ve lost context of reality; of big-picture, universe-sized reality. Out under a bajillion twinkling stars, the worry of are you making enough money becomes… silly. Stress of our loud lives fades, and a quiet calm settles from the top down and in out. We feel silent whispers that we belong to something bigger, and life is entirely what we dare to make it. And, so important now- we’re reminded that gender, race or religion are barriers that mean nothing to this greater reality. We are one people, crowded on a planet-sized ship, floating through this grand universe- all looking up and out at the same beautiful night sky.
Musical artist and rapper Asher Roth made this super-chill video about his Firefly. We love the original song (and you can’t hear it anywhere else!). “I’ve got a vision for us. It’s lovely. It’s lovely….” Asher Roth is best known for his single “I Love College.” He has since released a few different albums, and now works as an independent artist under his own label Retrohash. He’s a proud cannabis user and has been quoted about his cannabis use, saying “I honestly don’t believe [marijuana] is the gateway drug, because I use it and I’ve never done anything else… I’m trying to be open about my pot smoking.” And it seems to be helpful with creativity too! Keep up the good work Asher!
