Q: What is Bloom Mary Jane?
BloomMaryJane.com is a new media platform focused on global cannabis news, product reviews, and artist spotlights. We are at the center of a tight-knit network of entrepreneurs, budtenders, growers, brand reps, lawmakers, artists, and influencers in legal cannabis markets around the world. Our ability to activate dynamic relationships and connect the cannabis community on a global scale with agility, efficiency, and credibility is unparalleled in the industry. We pride ourselves on providing in-depth insider information from the front lines of the cannabis movement.

Q: Can you tell us about your experience working in the cannabis industry?
After relocating to Colorado from NYC in 2016 I started learning the landscape of the industry and building relationships. I have since worked on marketing and sponsorship projects with the Denver 420 Rally, My 420 Tours, Viola, Natural Remedies, Escape Artists, Moon Mother Hemp Co, The Clear, Will Power Products, Made in Shaolin, CBD Luxe, Tikiva Health, Quantum CBD H20 and a long list of ancillary companies. Before working in the industry I have been consuming cannabis for almost 20 years and daily for around 10 years. Cannabis helps me with my anxiety, neck pain, and even insomnia so I have held my medical marijuana card for just over two years here in Colorado. I owe a lot to the cannabis plant and look forward to making an impact with BloomMaryJane.com and doing what I can to break the stigma around cannabis.

Q: What lead you to start BloomMaryJane.com?
I have worked in media for over 15 years in various roles that include advertising campaign creation, event coverage, sponsorship sales and I was even an on-air host. Some of the media outlets I have worked with include the Baltimore Examiner, CBS Sports Radio, The Baltimore Guide, Hotline Radio, DTF Radio, and X101Jamz. During my time working within the music industry, I created a blog titled International-HipHop.com and after 5 years of running the site, I sold it to a larger media group. Ever since getting involved in the cannabis industry, I wanted to build a site to leverage the relationships I built and add value to each company, artist, dispensary, and entrepreneur featured on the site. In all honesty, I also wanted an excuse to travel to other legal markets around the world and experience what is happening on the front lines on a global scale. I figured what a better way to open doors and build relationships than through this new media platform.

Q: What type of content can we expect to see on your site?
We will have a very diverse and honest array of content that will include global cannabis news, product reviews, and artist spotlights. Currently, I’m very excited about one of the feature stories where a couple of black-owned cannabis companies will be writing an open letter to the industry on what it’s like for people of color to work in the industry and how to be more inclusive of minorities. I’m also working on an article with a recording artist/producer in Bali to discuss how he uses cannabis in the creative process and everyday life. In addition to these stories, we are working on product reviews with a couple of companies out of Colorado. Another article in the works is an in-depth conversation with Danny Schaefer the CEO of My 420 Tours to discuss the current and future landscape of Cannabis tourism. My goal for the site is to really merge together the different cannabis communities from around the world. I also want to provide a voice for the industry insiders to be heard so if anyone is interested in a guest article or has story ideas please email Info@BloomMaryJane.com.

Q: Where can people connect with Bloom Mary Jane online?
A: First and foremost www.BloomMaryJane.com, we will have some exclusive offers and updates so I HIGHLY recommend signing up for our newsletter. You can also find us on Facebook; facebook.com/BloomMaryJane420, Twitter; twitter.com/BloomMaryJane_ and Instagram; instagram.com/bloom_maryjane/

Seattle

Welcome to the Emerald City, where Seattle weed stores are at the top of many visitors’ to-do lists!

There are incredible things to do in Emerald City, like visiting evergreen forests, checking out local restaurants, and enjoying art galleries and music venues.

Ever since the state of Washington passed Initiative 502 (I-502), however, marijuana tourism has become its own industry in Seattle.

Seattle Weed Stores: An Introduction

To some visitors, there are as many dispensaries in Seattle as there are coffee shops in other cities. They’re seemingly on every corner and each one has its own unique vibe with something different to offer.

With so many different choices and a limited amount of time, how do you know where to go? Chances are you’re brimming with this and many other questions as well.

Some common questions for visitors are:

  • Where can I legally consume marijuana?
  • How much can I buy?
  • Can I bring it back home with me (out of state)?

If any of these questions are floating around in your mind, don’t worry. It’s totally normal.

It’s important to note that it is still a federal offense to manufacture, sell, or possess marijuana. Unless you live in a state where recreational marijuana is already legalized, most visitors to a marijuana-friendly state will have these questions. Even in states with legalized cannabis, the rules can vary.

Here’s what you need to know about buying and using marijuana in Seattle and Washington state.

Top Tip: Research Seattle Weed Stores Before You Visit

Just like any other trip, plan ahead!

Whether you’re coming here for business, pleasure, or marijuana tourism, it’s best to come with an action plan. You wouldn’t go to Europe without a laundry list of places to visit and things to see, right? A trip to Seattle should be no different!

If you’re short on time, chances are you’ll want to visit the weed dispensaries in Seattle that are closest to your hotel.

However, if you have a little more time, then you can do more exploration farther away and see what the city fully has to offer!

One of our favorite Seattle weed stores is American Mary.

During these unprecedented times, you can still visit the store in person, but they’ve also created the option to order online and pick-up in person. This limits person-to-person contact to keep everyone physically healthy!

Hands down, our favorite thing about American Mary are their weekly specials. In fact, they’re more like daily specials.

Every day of the week, American Mary has a unique offering like Marijuana Mondays (15 percent off four eights) and CO2uesdays (10 percent off cartridges).

It’s normal for weed dispensaries in Seattle to have limited promotions or specials, but American Mary always has discounted products thanks to their daily deals.

The menu is incredible and is designed to provide the best deals near you. Whether you seek flower, edibles, cartridges, or anything else in between, chances are that they carry it!

Know Where You Can Legally Consume Marijuana

Once you visit a Seattle weed store like American Mary, it’s important to know where you can and cannot legally consume.

Yes, recreational marijuana is legal in the state of Washington, but just like alcohol and other substances, there are still rules you need to abide by when partaking in its use.

For example, do not drive while high or consume marijuana in public places or close to schools. These things are illegal. 

Perhaps more importantly, it’s important to purchase from a licensed dispensary such as American Mary. Just because cannabis is legal in the state, it doesn’t mean that you can legally purchase from street dealers. Only purchases from establishments with legal licences are permitted.

If you’re staying in a hotel, it’s important to obey the hotel’s smoking rules. It’s estimated that 75 percent of the state’s hotels are smoke-free. If the hotel doesn’t allow smoking cigarettes, then they won’t allow smoking cannabis, either.

Traveler’s Tip: Edibles are a popular choice for visitors, as smoking isn’t necessary. Just be sure to check with your budtender regarding the correct dose! Sometimes, edibles can be too potent for first-time users. 

Buying and Consuming Cannabis in Seattle

When it comes to recreational cannabis, what’s brought into Washington state must stay in Washington state.

Because it’s still a federal offense to manufacture, sell, or possess marijuana, it’s important to keep the marijuana in-state and use it only within state borders.

National parks in Washington state are considered federal land, so it’s illegal to bring cannabis products there. If you’re in Washington and partake in a cruise, it’s important to know that you can’t bring marijuana onto a cruise ship, even if you purchased it legally.

Edibles from weed dispensaries in Seattle such as American Mary are popular because they’re discreet. Cookies infused with marijuana, for example, don’t look any different from “normal” cookies.

Still, we recommend abiding by the general rule: always consume cannabis discreetly, and with respect to others. If you aren’t, chances are it’s not legally okay.

A Summary of Marijuana Consumption in Seattle

At the end of the day, we’re still incredibly lucky to have access to legal recreational marijuana in Washington. It’s nice to be able to visit a dispensary like American Mary without having to worry about legality.

Just because cannabis is legal statewide, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t rules to follow. By staying in accordance with the rules, you’ll keep yourself safe and ensure that access to legal marijuana continues to normalize.

When in doubt, put it out! 

It’s better to be safe than sorry, so if you have any doubts about where you are consuming, first ensure that you are in private and not disturbing others. 

Public consumption, especially on federal land or on cruise ships, is not permitted under any circumstances in Seattle.

Still, you can have an incredible blast with marijuana in Seattle! We hope you have a great time exploring different products and places.

Remember – by following the rules, you help the marijuana industry thrive. 

Keep track of your limits, be safe, and most importantly, have fun!
